This community lost two special people this past few months. Barb and Ted Warren came from Ireland and became part of a new community here in North Grenville. Barb died in September, and Ted remained without her for only a few weeks.
On Thursday, September 3, 2020, Barbara Elizabeth Warren (nee McNeill), passed away peacefully in the company of her family. Barb was an active member of her community, volunteering and supporting many organizations such as the Kemptville Public Library, the Recreation Committee, the Kemptville District Hospital, and the Altar Guild at St. James. Throughout her life, she developed many deep and enduring friendships and will be sadly missed by many.
Then on Monday, October 19, Edward Jackson Wellesley Warren, “Ted” to the lucky that knew him, passed away peacefully at Dundas Manor in the company of his family. Many know Ted from his extensive efforts in the community with Rotary International, St James Anglican Church, Kemptville Players, Kemptville District Hospital, Kemptville 73’s, the hunt camp, as a judge or from his federal nomination efforts in Leeds Grenville. He also spoke fondly of his memories of his time at St Columba, TCD, and the Stags Head Pub in Dublin.
Barbara and Ted met in Ireland and immigrated to Toronto, then put down strong roots in the Kemptville area. They were married at Christ Church in Burritts Rapids, Ontario in 1960, and together opened the Edward J W Warren Law Office.
A fine appreciation of their roles in the Kemptville Players …
