Fay Minton

Suddenly on Tuesday, May 7, 2019, in her 87th year, at Markham Stouffville Hospital. Fay was born on May 14, 1932, in Stouffville, Ontario, to Tim and Mildred O’Neill. She had one younger sister, Joy. Fay married Polly Minton on September 5, 1953, and together they had two daughters, Cindy (Loren) and Tanya (Ed). Fay’s grandchildren, Alyssa, Steven, and Gillian were one of her greatest joys in life. Fay was one of only two women in her class at the Canadian School of Embalming. She was a pioneer in her chosen profession. However, after all of the funeral services she performed over the years, she did not want one of her own. She wanted a party to celebrate a life well lived! Please join us on Friday, May 17th, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Willow Springs Winery, Stouffville. If you have a story or memory you wish to share at this time, we encourage you to do so. Come raise a glass of wine (Fay’s favourite drink) and help us to toast ‘ a life well lived.’
