GOODERHAM, Nancey With sadness we announce the death of Nancey Gooderham, 89, of Oakville and Temagami, Ont., on December 25, 2010. Nancey, 89, of Oakville and Temagami, Ont., passed away on December 25, 2010. She was the devoted wife for 50 years of Bill Gooderham, who died in 2001, and loving mother and mother-in-law to Gerry and Suzanne, Patricia, Susan, Jane and Laura, Mary and Andrew. Dynamic and kindred grandmother to Michael, Nancy, Krista, Nicholas, Alexander and Rachel. Nancey died peacefully, surrounded by family, on Christmas - her favourite day of the year. Born to Anna (Nance) Eustace in New York City on June 27, 1921, she was raised Nancey Quigley, the daughter of Bert and Mae Quigley. She grew up in Montreal and Toronto. While on a trip in 1943 with her sister Betty to Camp Chimo on Lake Temagami, she was introduced by the camp owner, Gordon S. Gooderham, to his son Bill. Eight years later Nancey and Bill married, and together they ran the summer camp until the mid-1970s. They raised their family in a beautiful home they built on Lake Ontario in Oakville. Nancey was an exceptional cook, a passionate traveller, a spirited storyteller and she deeply appreciated the excitement of landing a three-pound bass at dusk in Slide Rock Bay. She was generous, worked tirelessly as a volunteer and was dedicated to St. Andrew's Church in Oakville and St. Ursula's Church in Temagami. An accomplished oil painter who adored the theatre, music and the arts, Nancey especially loved to bring together friends, family and neighbours for marvellous social occasions. We will celebrate her life at a funeral at 11a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 29, at St. Andrew's Church, 47 Reynolds St., Oakville.
