Auguste wanted to be remembered for the relationships she had in her life and this is how she described herself. A native and longtime resident of Hespeler, Auguste was the daughter of Johannes and Johanna Ross (Rohs) who emigrated from Germany in the 1920s. Auguste was the sister of three brothers, pre-deceased by Walter and Henning and survived by Frank Ross. She was the wife of the late George Henry Feltham, and the biological mother of five children, predeceased by three of those children, her sons Joseph Frank Henning Feltham, infant Brian George, and a stillborn daughter. She was the mother of Susan (Frank) McDonough and Doris (Tom) Cassan. She was the foster mother of Nelson (Liz) Vokey and Rodger (Beth) Vokey.
Auguste’s grandchildren are Adam McDonough, Sam Cassan, Peter Cassan, Meredith McDonough (Tom) Herr, Natasha McDonough (Kerry) Fisk and great-grandson Declan Fisk; foster grandmother to Amanda, Alex, Nick, Vanessa, Meghan, and Camelia Vokey. Auguste and George lived in Hespeler and later in Guelph and treasured their neighbours and friends in both places. Thank you for your friendship. Auguste endured decades of Parkinson’s Disease with her usual stoicism and courage. Parkinson’s is a devastating disease with no clear cause and no known cure.
