Matilda « Tilly » Fay
With sadness we
announce the passing of Tilly Fay on August 20, at the age of 80,
after a brief battle with cancer. Predeceased by husband George
(8/13/04) and mother Ethel Howarth (12/88).Tilly is survived by son,
Peter Fay (London), step-children Linda Visconti (Athens, GA), Leslie
Fay/Rose (Kitchener) and Richard Fay/Betty (Mt. Brydges), as well as 5
grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.
Tilly has led a very
active life. She has been a competitive roller skater and is
a past Ontario Seniors Roller Skating champion. Many years
were spent volunteering with husband George at the North London
Optimist Center on Cheapside Street, manning the roller skating for
the Huff & Puff organization. Both she and George
were honored by the City of London for their volunteerism. She was an
avid golfer and belonged to Ingersoll Golf and Country Club for many
years. Her latest pleasure had been ball room
dancing. She has been a member of the Barbie Doll Club of
London for many years.
It was Tilly’s wish
that there be no visitation or service. She will be cremated
and interred at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery at a later date. Our thanks to
the staff on the 10th floor, Palliative Care at University Hospital
for their kindness and excellent care. If desired, donations may be
made in her name to the Diabetes Association of Canada, or the
Canadian Cancer Society. Arrangements entrusted to
Logan Funeral Home, 371 Dundas Street,
London, Ontario (519-433-6181). Online condolences can be expressed at
A tree will be planted by the staff of the Logan Funeral Home, as a
living memorial to Tilly.
