My sincerest condolences to the family of Mim. I just learned of her passing and fondly remember all the times we spent 'hanging out' with anything related to the Northumberland Orchestra and Choir. She always had a smile and that smile I will cherish. Mim was a very important part of the film, Making Overtures-the Story of a Community Orchestra!! I am sure your Mom and Grandma is singing with the Angels. Hugs to all the family.
To Mim’s children .. your Mom was a busy talented lady who shared her gifts in so many ways. I felt proud to call her my friend. She loved her family above all. Hold tight to your memories, she will live on through them.

Greg, Cheryl and families, I am so sorry for the loss of your Mother. Mim was a beautiful singer and organist. I enjoyed listening to her in Church on the weekends. May she rest peacefully on the wings of the Angels. Sincerely, Bill and Carm.
Condolences to Mim’s family. Mim introduced me to the volunteer system at NHH. She was a delight to learn from. She was such a lovely, compassionate, talented and caring lady. Good memories.
Many fond memories from my childhood in Wicklow,my condolences to the family
I first met Mim when the NOC was formed and we spent years singing, working together, and sharing life stories. I am so blessed to have had her as a friend.
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mim. She and my mother, Margery Parker, worked together on Girl Guides through the 1960's. We lived in Wicklow on the south side of Hwy. 2 and the Ushers lived straight south of us. My Mother would want me to acknowledge her friendship with Mim and their teamwork with Guiding.
You had a great Mama. Cherish the memories. Thinking of you all. ❤️❤️
Sincere Condolences to Mim's family. I remember your Mum as a powerhouse of a lady with a beautiful voice!
My mom introduced me to this nice lady she was singing with in choir. Mim quickly made a soft spot in my heart as well. Although I havent seen Mim for a few years it brings tears to my eyes to see this notice. To Mim's family I am sorry you have lost such a warm big hearted mom/ grandmom / sister/ partner.
Mim was a special person to our Hospital and Foundation organizations. I enjoyed many years seeing her out and about in the Hospital as she volunteered in various units. She was one of our biggest fans and I am grateful for the opportunity to know her. May she rest in peace.
Mim was a long time member of the Northumberland Hills Hospital Auxiliary! She dedicated 29 amazing years and even was president of the Auxiliary board for a portion of this time. We were all so fortunate to have had Mim's support and guidance at NHH. She will be sorely missed by so many. Sending lots of love to her family from her friends at the hospital.
I spent many happy years volunteering at the hospital with Mim. I offer my sincere condolences.
Warren, Greg, Cheryl and Families, Mim was a very wonderful person. Always a pleasure to serve her over the years. We shall miss her banter, laughter and smile. Cherish all of your memories and remember she will continue to watch over you. Carol and Eliza
Kerry, Greg, Cheryl, Jim and families please accept my condolences on the loss of your beloved mother. Cherish all your beautiful memories.
Rest in peace Mim !!!!
To the family of “Mim” I am deeply saddened to hear of her passing. I’ve known her for years, first meeting her in St. Mary’s parish in Grafton. I remember her singing for my first wedding there! She was a beautiful person and I’m so glad to have known her! My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time. Sincerely, CarolAnn (nee VanBelois)
