Obituary

It is with great sadness that the family of Olivia Veda MacLean (nee Greenbird) announce her passing at the age of 76 on January 24th, 2020, at Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital.

Known to all as Veda, Doug and Veda shared their lives for over 60 years, with a grown family of Irene (John) Thompson, Marion (Brian) Layman, Douglas (Adrianna) MacLean, and James MacLean. Veda cherished her 14 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren, including one great-granddaughter named after her and born on her birthday (December 23), and1 great-great-granddaughter. Veda is predeceased by 3 grandsons Michael Douglas Cole (1995), Douglas Wesley White (2018) and Justin James Thompson (2019).

Survived by her siblings Arlene, Vonda, Brenda, Laurie, Wendy, and Randy, Veda is predeceased by 2 sisters, Lucille, Joyce, her brother Robert and her parents Robert & Irene Greenbird. Veda will be missed by her many extended family, friends, and neighbours.

Veda was a bookworm who loved to read a variety of books, preferring her Harlequin Romances. Knitting, needlepoint, baking, and quilting where just some of Veda's favourite hobbies, passing many of these skills onto her grandchildren. Angel figurines abounded in Veda's home, a touch of heaven in her own surroundings.

A visitation will take place on Wednesday, January 29, 2020, from 1pm - 3pm, at Gilpin Funeral Chapel, 123 King Street East, in Forest, followed by a service conducted at 3pm with Pastor Murray Shawnoo officiating. A reception will follow at the Kettle Point Community Centre where friends and family are welcomed back to share memories and moments together.

Donations can be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation in Veda's honour. Arrangements are entrusted to Gilpin Funeral Chapel, 123 King Street East in Forest, 519-786-4964. Please share a memory or condolence at www.GilpinFuneralChapel.com

It is with great sadness and eyes filled with tears upon hears of the passing of Veda and I'd like to take a moment to share how special Veda was to me. Although I had not seen Vida in over a year I have to say she was a remarkable person to me. Always making me feel at home when ever I'd visited her home in the past and also in her kitchen after taking part in her family Christmas dinners at the shop where I'd walk back to her home after we'd sometimes load up her car with leftovers and used pots and pans. I spent many many hours at the table in her home chatting up a storm or just listening to her talk especially about her grandbabies of whom she was proud of. My heart goes out to her family and friends whom are left behind with now sits her empty chair. Words can not ever express how special Vida was and how much I have missed her over the past year. May God help her family during this difficult time in their lives and may she rest in peace.
