HAROLDINE ANNE AINSLIE
Haroldine Anne Ainslie of Espanola passed away peacefully at her home with family by her side on January 17, 2022, at the age of 69. A loving wife, mother, grandmother and a devoted friend, Haroldine was a retired teacher, having taught at A.B. Ellis Public School in Espanola for 27 years. She was always physically active, participating in AquaFit, From Soup to Tomatoes and walking. Always the gracious hostess, Haroldine generously opened her home to guests, readily sharing funny stories and delicious home-cooked meals. Haroldine welcomed any opportunity to join a friend for tea, or fish and chips on Manitoulin Island, and she loved jaunts to the beach at Providence Bay. But nothing made her eyes sparkle and warmed her heart more than spending quality time with her little granddaughter, Livia. Haroldine was predeceased by her parents, Mick Clarke and Patricia Clarke (nee Ferguson). Beloved wife of Bill, loving mother of Paul (Liane) of Espanola and Kari Pearce (Jordan) of North Bay and cherished “Gamma H” to granddaughter Livia. Dear sister of Colleen Morin of Ottawa. She will also be sadly missed by many close friends and relatives. The family would like to thank Dr. Masters, Dr. Emack and NP Erin Neufeld and all of the medical providers from the Espanola Regional Hospital, the Northeast Cancer Centre and Bayshore Home Health who were involved in her care. Cremation will be followed by a Celebration of Life at a later date. If so desired, donations to the Northern Cancer Foundation would be appreciated.
