Obituary

It is with great sadness that we, the family of Griselda Forde, announce her passing on Tuesday, June 16, 2020 in her 80th year. Shortly before her death, Griselda was visited by members of the family. She is lovingly remembered by her husband of over 60 years, Michael Forde; her children Ingrid Doll and Roger Forde (Sarah); her granddaughter Shannon Doll; her sisters Brenda Carter of Cambridge and Arminta Barrow of N.Y.C; her brothers Keith Weekes (Elaine) of Phoenix, Arizona, and Orrie Weekes and Hayden Barrow of Barbados; her sisters-in-law Patricia Small (Tyrone), Beverly Smith, Cecilia Wharton-Stoute (Ian), Angela Carter (Lon), and Cheryl Wharton; and her brothers-in-law Vincent Forde, Trevor Wharton and Wendell Wharton (Karen). She will also be sadly missed by her dear friend Joy Pugsley who lovingly helped care for her. Griselda is predeceased by her youngest daughter Michelle Forde (2014); her son-in-law Jonathan Doll (2019); her brothers Jeffery and Adrian, both of the USA, and Richard of Barbados; and her sisters-in-law Sheila Farnum (2012) and Molly Forde (2020). Griselda will also be fondly remembered by her numerous immediate and extended family and friends. Born on February 5th, 1940 in Barbados, West Indies, Griselda lived a full life. She immigrated to Canada in July 1967 and started her new life as a Canadian citizen along with her family. She quickly found employment with Long Manufacturing, where she spent over 23 years. Family was very important to Griselda and she poured her heart and life into the role of wife and mother. Church was a very important part of her life. She was a faithful member of Temple Baptist Church in Cambridge for over 40 years, as well as being involved at other assemblies such as Calvary Assembly – Ladies Bible Study and Encore Seniors Group; Living Word Baptist Church – Wednesday Night Bible Study and Forward Church – Oasis Seniors Group. We would like Griselda to be remembered as a strong woman of faith and a serious prayer warrior. The family would like to thank the LHIN Network, Dr. Hahn, Dr. Doherty, Donna Gill, nurses Ram and Elaine, and PSW Rose for the care and kindness provided during her brief illness. Family will be receiving friends on Sunday, June 21, 2020 at Lounsbury Funeral Home, 1766 Franklin Blvd., Cambridge from 2 - 5 p.m. Due to COVID restrictions and family preference, there will be a limit of up to 25 people allowed to visit at a time while following strict Covid protocol and social distancing practices. There will be a Graveside Service held on Monday, June 22, 2020 at New Hope Cemetery, 235 Cooper Street, Cambridge at 12 noon. A Celebration of Life will be held for the first anniversary date in 2021. Donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, Temple Baptist Church, Living Word Baptist Church or Calvary Assembly, all of Cambridge.

We have many happy memories of laughter shared with both Griselda and Michael through the years that we've been good friends with Ingrid and Jonathan. Griselda enjoyed introducing her beloved Barbadian customs and food to us! When you make the acquaintance of one Forde family member, you get embraced by them all! We shared our final meal with her at Jon's funeral and will always miss seeing her at future family events. Enjoy your well-deserved rest from this world's troubles, Griselda. God bless you and the whole family

Dear Ingrid and family,
Joe and I would like to extend our deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother. It is very difficult to lose your mother and it certainly sounds like she was an amazing woman. May your faith and happy memories bring you peace.

I am heartbroken and will miss her immensely. She was always supportive, kind and generous. She has forever left a positive impact on my life and many others. She lived as a strong Christian who was sensitive, gentle and genuine. Her family was very important and she would do anything for them. Her beaming smile and happy disposition would light up the room. The world is a much better place because of her. Such a truly beautiful person with an amazing soul. I feel truly blessed to have had her as my mother-in-law.
