Lucy Gardiner

Born: June 23rd, 1924

Passed on: November 18th, 2013

Lucy Florence (Porter) Gardiner, of London, ON went home to be with her Lord and Saviour on November 18, 2013 in her 90th year. Lucy was born on June 23, 1924 in Porterville, Newfoundland, the daughter of Caleb and Sarah (Ball) Porter and the 11th of 14 children. Growing up on the Bay of Exploits in beautiful Porterville left an indelible mark upon Lucy, and it would remain her favourite place on earth all of her life. World War II brought Canadian soldiers to Newfoundland's shores and her future husband as well. She married James Gardiner on January 31, 1944, and together they raised a family of six children, immigrating to Ontario in 1950. Those who knew her will remember a proud Newfoundlander, a woman of strong faith, a compassionate nurse, and a wonderful mother and grandmother. She remained young at heart and full of life and laughter all of her days. Lucy is predeceased by husband James, her parents, brothers: Asaph, Harrison and Harold; sisters: Mary, Gladys, Phyllis, Edna, Julie, Edith and Jesse; two sons: Barton and Greg Gardiner; and grandson Chad Gardiner. She is survived by her children: Eloise (Bruce) MacDonald of London, Sherry (Leonard) Butters of St Marys, Bradly (Marion) Gardiner of London, Vicki (Peter) Burgess of Forest, and Bethne (Aivars) Berzins of Prince Edward Island. She was a fun and loving grandmother to 14 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by siblings Audrey Forgey of Westfield, NB, Minnie Haines of Lewisporte, NL and Max (Sheila) Porter of Porterville, NL. "Aunt Lucy" will be missed by many nieces and nephews in Newfoundland and across Canada. She will also be missed by many others and all who knew her. A graveside service was held at St Marys Cemetery 150 Cain Street, St. Marys, Ontario on Wednesday, November, 20, 2013 at 2:15 p.m. with Pastor David Elliott of Knollwood Baptist Church officiating. Those who wish to make donations in Lucy’s memory are asked to consider Porterville United Church c/o Sheila Porter RR #1 Box 152 Porterville, NL A0G 3A0.
