Joseph Donald Williamson
passed away peacefully on December 26, 2017 in his 82nd year. He is survived by his wife Amy Williamson (Smith) and his sister Helen Harris (Richard).
Joe was predeceased by his sisters Doris Ray (Fred), Mildred Leslie (Bill), and his brothers Albert Williamson, Robert Williamson (Irene) and Jim Williamson (Eleanor).
Joe was a loving husband to Amy and continued to care for her as she fought her battle with dementia. He proudly served in the Canadian Military for 32 years and, after retiring from the military, he was an active member in the Little Current Legion, Channel View Seniors, the Anglican Church, and the Centennial Manor Auxiliary. He walked quietly through life with dignity and he was a blessing to all.
Family and Friends will gather at the Island Funeral Home on Friday December 29, 2017 at 11:00 am to celebrate his life. Pastor Paul Allard will be officiating.
Joe was a strong believer in helping people and donations in his memory will be gratefully accepted by the Manitoulin Centennial Manor Auxiliary, the United Church or the Anglican Church.
In the spring of life, we learn of joy, and wonder at each day
We run and shout and sing and dance, along life’s merry way
And God revels in our joy, and walks beside us on the trail
Teaching us life’s lessons, as on our strength we try and fail
In the summer of life we learn of pain, and work and toil and strife
We labour through the dark of night, and work consumes our life
And in the quiet hours, when we fall exhausted into sleep
God’s Angel lays beside us for “his little child to keep”
In the Autumn of life we learn, that time’s a gift we’re meant to share
We learn to savour moments and let people know we care
And we learn to trust God’s wisdom, and finally we see
That it’s only through His power, that we truly are what we should be
In winter strength succumbs, to the constant ticking of the clock
As we seek to share our gifts with those who will take the time to talk
And God sees us as his Angels charged to share his word alone
Until he gathers us in glory and he calls his Angels home.
You have lived through many seasons, and have known both joy and pain
You are now wrapped God’s great glory and you sing the heavenly refrain
You walked among the mortals and through the gifts you’ve shared
We know that God sends Angels here to keep us in his care.
