MEEK, Queena Anne
Peacefully, in Toronto, on September 17, 2007, after a long life. Queena was born on December 12, 1909, the younger daughter of the late Alice (nee Bradley) and Joseph Wilson. She is pre-deceased by her sister Eva (Alfred); and her late husbands Clarence Pocock and Haldon Meek. Queena is survived by her nephew, Dr. Ronald Foote, and his wife Sybil, as well as their children, spouses and five great-grand nieces and nephews: Andrew and Lori Foote and their sons Eric and Adam; Victoria Foote and John Lorinc and their sons Jacob and Sammy; and Trevor Foote and Robin King, and their daughter Corrie. Queena worked for many years as a secretary in the accounting firm of Clarkson Gordon. In her spare time, she enjoyed tennis, travelling and bridge. She was also blessed with a wry sense of humour, a warm smile and an abundance of common sense. Queena's family would like to extend its gratitude to Miriam Deschamps and Juliette Delpesph for all the compassion and generosity they've provided Queena in the past several years. Private funeral arrangements have been made.
