Hugh ‘Donald’ Wilson
Don Wilson of Winchester passed away unexpectedly in Ottawa on Jan. 22, 2006. He was 71.
Don was born in Winchester on Dec. 30, 1934, along with his twin brother Doug, to the late Hugh and Violet Wilson (nee McCourtie). Don remained a resident of Winchester all of his life. He worked for over 35 years for the federal government as a cartographer and was a life long member of St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church.
Don is survived by his wife Donna Wilson (nee Allison), his two daughters, Karen (Stephen MacDonald) and Alayne (Tom Hicks) and by his grandchildren, Adam, Aaron, Kathryn, and Kaleb MacDonald, and Tommy and Rebecca Hicks. He will be sadly missed by his brother Jack (Evah), his sister Lois (Jack Smith) and by his twin brother Doug (Myrna). He was also dear uncle to many nieces and nephews.
Visitation was held at the Winchester Funeral Home on Jan, 24, 2006. The funeral service was held at St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church on Jan. 25 at 11:00 am. Rev. Dr. Floyd McPhee delivered a fitting tribute to a full church remembering Don as a good faithful, generous man. Burial followed at Maple Ridge Cemetery in Chesterville. A reception was held at the church hall and was enjoyed by all.
Pallbearers were Bill Sherwood, Jorris Zubatuk, George Edwardson, Bob Geggie, Neil Gardiner, and John Dumoulin.
Donations in memory of Don may be made to St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church.
