WILLMORE, Edward Roy (Ted) - of Chatham, Ontario. Edward (Ted) Willmore passed away at Riverview Gardens, on Tuesday October 26, 2010. Born in Northern Saskatchewan, 90 years ago, son of the late Roy Willmore and Alice (Stebbings). His wife, Julia (Cartier) predeceased in 2001. Ted served with the Kent Regiment during World War II and in 1948 he joined the Chatham Police Service, retiring in 1985 as an Inspector. He was very active in the community and was involved with the Knights of Columbus, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 28, Senior Citizens Centre, the Goodfellows and was a very special friend to Elmer the Safety Elephant. In 1980 he was named “Mr. Goodfellow“, a title which suited him well. Ted will be missed by many and remembered for his caring manner and sense of humour. Cremation to follow with Inurnment in the Mausoleum of Maple Leaf Cemetery.

I have no further information about his wife at this point of time.

OLD Mausoleum

Hugh and Emily Malcolmson

Hugh Malcolmson was born in the Orkney Islands of Scotland. He immigrated to Canada in 1857 and married Alexina 24 May 1861 in Hamilton, Ontario. They moved to Chatham shortly after their marriage. She was a distant cousin and her maiden name was Malcomson (without the "l") and also an immigrant from the Orkney Islands. After she died he remarried Emily Lavinia Wood who was born in England in 1885. After Hugh died she returned to Hamilton to live near or with relatives and died there. She was returned to Chatham to be buried in the Mausoleum with her husband. Hugh started out as a grocer (merchant) according to the 1871 and 1881 census. By 1891 he was a wholesale grocery merchant and then became a manufacturer in the canning business. When he died he was retired. At the time of his death he lived on Victoria Avenue in Chatham.
