    You were a “bright light” to me during your time at Simcoe Manor. It was an honor to help you Chris.

    I will forever remember your funny dry sense of humour.

    You always spoke highly and lovingly about your family + the special dog “Whiskey” who you were so proud to have named.

    Blessings always to you + your family.

    Dear Paul, Linda, Jennifer and Jonathon, We were so saddened by the news of Mrs A’s (as we always called her) passing. She was a constant in our lives as teenagers and young adults. Always welcoming us into the family home and stuffing us with delicious food. We always admired her fierce independence and zest for life. Please know we are thinking of you at this very difficult time and our wish is that your wonderful memories bring you peace and comfort. Love Paulla & Greg xoxo

    Chris was always lovingly known as the feisty gal who didn’t need any help. She showed up to every gathering we held with a wonderful appetizer and of course would take a drink or two!
    She always had a story to tell and loved our Lucy pup.
    A wonderful strong, determined women whom I hope to model in my coming years.
    Rest In Peace Chris xox

    To the Alcock Family, your Mum and Grandma was very a very special lady! She was always so interested in what was going on in your life, ready to lend an ear and a kind word or two. And, she would always share her recipes, which was a real treat! I will never forget how she would make John walk me home after dinner – even though we only lived a few steps away! She will be remembered always, and sadly missed. Love to you all

    I have known Chris for more than 30 years through Theatre Aurora. She was kind, dependable and simply lovely. We shared a lot of laughs over the years and she was a great help to me on many shows I produced. I will miss her.

    My thoughts are with her family at this sad time.

    Chris always opened up her home to friends and family. She made everyone feel welcome. She was a superb cook and baked the best pies. She had two of everything! She was a proud individual that stood strong in her beliefs. The passion she felt for
    animals(especially dogs)was undeniable.
    Thinking about the family,
    may happy memories replace
    any sadness in your heart.
    She lives on through us, within our hearts and in our minds.
    Mrs A. I hope you are with John, Murray, any other loved ones and all of your pets.
    I’d like to think that our paths will cross again.
    Love you, may you
    Rest In Peace
