In Loving Memory of Peter Whiteside – (1943-2021)
Peter Whiteside passed away peacefully, with family by his side, at the Cornwall Community Hospital on Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021; at age 78. Peter grew up in Moulinette and moved to Long Sault during the creation of the St. Lawrence Seaway in 1958. He often reminisced and shared stories of growing up in the Lost Villages. Peter graduated from C.C.V.S. and then from McGill University with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. While attending McGill, Peter married his high school sweetheart, Dorothy Raymond in 1964. He then attended Queen’s University to earn his Bachelor of Education. Peter taught mathematics at both General Vanier Secondary School and Cornwall Collegiate & Vocational School from 1966 – 1997. Peter loved to socialize, travel, discuss current events with his coffee crew, and watch the Leafs and Blue Jays games. He was immensely proud of his family – especially his grandchildren.
Peter is predeceased by his loving wife Dorothy, his parents (Thomas Douglas Whiteside, Bess Whiteside), his siblings (Richard Whiteside, Joyce Carson, and Jane Craig), and his in-law family (Keitha and George Raymond, Annie Peddie, and Red Carson).
Peter is survived by his loving companion and best friend, Madeleine Lemieux; his children, Judy (Guy Lamarche), Tom (Kristin); his grandchildren Nick, Emilie, Ava, and Marissa. Peter will be greatly missed by his nieces and nephews; Rod Carson, John Carson, Nancy Candelaria, Doug Craig, Ann Hornback, Byron Raymond, and Bruce Raymond. He will also be fondly remembered by his in-law family (Jim Craig, Ralph Peddie, Arthur and Jo-Ann Raymond).
Many thanks to the staff and doctors at both the St. Lawrence Medical Clinic and the Cornwall Community Hospital, family and friends for prayers and expressions of support, and a special heartfelt thanks to Dr. Yu, Dr. Westergaard, and Caitie Chabot for the compassionate end-of-life care and support that was provided to Peter and family.
In Lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of choice would be appreciated.
Due to COVID regulations, a private family funeral service will be held.
