Passed away June 15th peacefully in her 102nd year, in the care of her family and the wonderful staff of Pine House at Cobourg Extendicare. Born in London England April 3, 1919, Lavinia had many fond memories of her youth. Like many others of the time, she survived the bombings of London during the Second Word War, married a Canadian soldier named George Neville and immigrated to Canada as a war bride, landing at Pier 21 in Halifax. Lavinia had five children, Richard, Susan, Judith Ann (predeceased), Joel and Jonathan. She was also blessed with six grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren and 5 great- great- grandchildren. Lavinia maintained a sense of humour about getting old and always enjoyed cursing about something or someone. We will always remain grateful to those staff at Extendicare for the care and comfort given to Lavinia ensuring she passed away with dignity. We were awed by so many staff members that came in to say good bye. She touched all your lives as you did hers. She enjoyed your humour and being referred to as "the old cow". She will be greatly missed by all. A private graveside service was held in St. James Cemetery, Caledon. Donations to the charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.

I was saddened to read the announcement of Vina’s passing. She was one of my very favorites at Legion Village. She pulled no punches and said it as it was. I remember her many years ago being the feisty Gramma to Ricky & Roger on James St & last saw her in March at Extendicare. She was one of a kind, such a strong lady. While cutting her hair I could always count on hearing some interesting stories for a good laugh. You lived a good life my friend & will be missed by so many! Rest In Peace 💖
