It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our cherished mom, Mildred Isabelle Keillor (née Merritt), better known as Mid. She passed away peacefully, at the South Bruce Grey Health Centre in Kincardine, on Wednesday, Aug. 11, 2021, with her beloved children at her side. She was just short of her 95th birthday (Sept. 26th).
She was the daughter of the late Charles and Vinnie (née Goessell) Merritt.
Beloved wife of the late Doug Keillor (2003), and the late Gerald (Perk) Pierson (1978). Daughter-in-law of the late John and Pearl Pierson.
Lovingly remembered by her children: Dennis Pierson (Carol) and Dianne Flynn (Mike), all of Kincardine.
Forever remembered by her grandchildren: Michelle Myers (Lorin) and Mike Pierson (Tish); great-grandchildren Derek (April), Branden (Bronte), Bailey and Breigha; and great-great-grandchildren Kaine, Lincoln, Remy, Ronin, Nash and Atley.
Sadly missed by several generations of nephews and nieces. Mid was predeceased by her brothers and sisters: Helenor Kennedy, Charles Merritt, Arthur Merritt, Dorothy Dagg, Elwood Merritt, Olive Fry and Grace Merritt.
Mid was a long-time member of the Royal Canadian Legion. She loved golf, winters in Florida, music, dancing and entertaining family and friends. She was born and raised in Kincardine then moved to London, Ontario, only to eventually return to Kincardine.
A private family graveside service will take place at a later date.
“Gone, but never forgotten and forever in our hearts.”
Memorial donations to the Royal Canadian Legion – Branch 183, Kincardine; Huron Shores Hospice in Tiverton; or to a charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated as expressions of sympathy.
