Of waking up in glory

TISI, Fernand Joseph
August 29, 1926 - Aug 31, 2014
Fern passed away peacefully at Foyer Richelieu on Sunday at the age of 88. Overcoming numerous health issues, his will to live was an incredible force that kept him with us for this long. For that we are grateful, while hoping that he is now at peace and in a better place. Fern was born in St. Camille to a family of 17. Some of his fondest memories were the many family get-togethers that took place in the earlier years. He mastered many different disciplines during his life, ultimately becoming a carpenter by trade. He applied his carpentry skills to helping each and every one of his children renovate, build and ultimately improve their living standard. In his final work years, he was hired at the Ontario Paper Mill as a tradesperson. Any work performed throughout his entire career would always be done with skill, precision and pride of ownership. Some of his favourite travels were to Vermont, British Columbia, California, Florida, Hawaii, France and Italy. His father had immigrated to Canada from Italy as a young man. Fern's most memorable trip appeared to be when he had the opportunity to visit his father's birthplace and childhood home in a small town in the mountains of Italy called Bisaccia. Spending a great deal of time with his granddaughter as she was growing up and watching her excel in countless sporting events amongst other activities brought him a sense of pride and unparalleled joy. Predeceased by his wife Jeannine in 1991, his father Michael, mother Zelia, siblings Sylvia, Generome, Alice, Virgine, Luger, Albert, Armand, Irenee, Joseph, Lucienne and Real. He is survived by his sister and brother, Antoinette Boisvert and Gabriel Tisi; children Roger Tisi and wife Nadine, Gaetan Tisi and wife Sharon, and Denise Conway; grandchildren Ryan Conway, Michael Tisi, Sean Tisi and Stesha Conway and finally great-grandchild Aidan Conway. Special thanks to his sister-in-law Gilberte Tisi for helping in times of need.

With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beautiful Mother on Monday, August 4th, 2014. Mary was born on May 5th, 1924 (nee Koruna) in Thorold, Ontario where she lived her entire life. In 1948 she married the love of her life Henry (Hank) Calmusky and shortly thereafter they started their own version of 'My Three Sons' with the birth of Dan in 1949 and then the arrival of twins Randy and Gary in 1952. To say that Mom lived for her family is an understatement - her family was her life! She gave unselfishly and lived tirelessly to ensure that her children were given every opportunity that was possible. Her love was unconditional. In addition to raising her family, Mary worked at Towers, Dominion Stores and later at Sears Canada. She was not only our Mom, she was our hero! During times of crisis or panic her advice was always 'Get a good night's sleep and things will seem better in the morning.' She was right. Mary is survived by her husband Henry; sons Randy (Theresa) and Gary; grandchildren Ryan (Lani), Jennifer, and Kyle of Calgary; Alyson and Sean of Aurora; Lindsay and Michelle of Oakville; and great grandchildren Mia, and twins Carson and Kashton of Calgary. Mom we love you and through our many fond memories you will always be remembered and missed. Mother was predeceased by her brother William Koruna and her sister Jennie Kucharski. Our Angel is now reunited with our brother Dan who we are sure will proudly give Mom a tour of Heaven. At the family's request a private burial has already taken place.
