Lois Tamborine January 27, 2024

Sadly we announce the passing of Lois Mary Tamborine (nee Van Sickle) in her 94th year at her Berford Lake residence on Saturday January 27, 2024. Cherished mother of Patricia Pawlow, of Hamilton. Loving gramma of Matthew Pawlow (Jillian); and great-gramma of Mila and Emily. Predeceased by her parents, Carl and Mary; and by her husband James “Jimmy” Tamborine. Fondly remembered by her cousin, Mary Jo Van Sickle and family; the family of the late Alein Atkinson; Bobbie, Charlotte and Marshall, and Maria. Thank you to the neighbours who were always ready with help and support when needed. Lois was an active member of Trinity Anglican Church in Wiarton, and will be sadly missed by her friends from the Lutheran and Anglican Ministries of the Bruce Peninsula. Cremation has taken place and a memorial gathering to celebrate her life will be held later this summer. At Lois and her family’s request, donations to the Bruce Peninsula Hospitals Foundation – Wiarton Hospital would be appreciated. Arrangements made at the Thomas C. Whitcroft Peninsula Chapel, Wiarton (519) 534-5341. Condolences may be expressed online at www.whitcroftfuneralhome.com
