    Todd was like my second mom. Initially because I looked like Sharon and I also lived just a few blocks away. She was fun, sexy, witty, generous and a lovely person. She lived her life her way and loved Sharon and her husband and children and her stepchildren. She entertained us, charmed us, worked with us and made sure we provided strong vodka tonics (with Schweppes only) and never, heaven forbid, spritzers. That is not wine!!! Rest in peace Todd. We love you Diane and Rudi

  • Mary Ann Everdell says:

    Todd was exceptional and continues to be an inspiration to those who had the pleasure of her company. I smile at the very thought of her. Funny and charming! I am grateful to have known her.

    With sympathy.

  • Heather Kelly says:

    Todd was the epitome of style and grace and a true friend to all. Get-togethers at her home were legendary. Fabulous cocktails and food, not to mention her devilish sense of humour. Todd was truly the hostest with the mostest, right down to her colourful muumuu dresses. We are all so blessed to have had her as part of our lives. Rest in peace, dearest “Hot Toddy”. ♥

  • Mona Lee Frederickson says:

  • Colleen Vance says:

    Dear Sharon, and all of the family,
    I do not have your address but wanted to share my thoughts with you. You may remember that I too lived in Sandstone and spent many a time with Todd and Bill in our homes or at the hall celebrating anything that came along. We took bus trips together also and I don’t need to tell you that Todd was always the high-light of any gatherings.
    Todd was a very special person and although I did not see her much after she left Sandstone I was present at her continuing birthday parties and admired her spunk. We all know she was not well ,but carried on and lit up the room. My sincere condolences but you will have many happy memories of your mom and she will never be forgotten . with love, Colleen Vance

  • Brian William Brock says:

    Todd made a wonderful home for my Dad, myself and my brother Stan. She was full of life and always saw the positive in everyone. She was an exceptional cook and loved to entertain. Todd and my Dad enjoyed many great trips together and met and made friends with many people. One of my favourite family memories of Todd is of her playing bartender with my young sons Jeffrey and Jamie, serving drinks and making change out of the cash register we had sitting on the bar.

    As Todd would say ‘Life is for the living. You should live your life to the fullest and focus on the positive’. Todd’s infectious laugh and smile will be missed. Love, Brian and Karen Brock

  • Jeffrey Brock says:

    I will always remember the laughs and good times we spent with Grandpa Billy and Grandma Todd, both in Toronto and during our visits out West. The many photos/videos we kept have from these times always lead to story telling and reminiscing of great memories growing up. Grandma, you will certainly be missed by the entire family. We Love You. Jeff, Lisa, Brayden and Emily

  • Lisa Cameron (Granddaughter) says:

I will always remember her laughter, her smell, her passion for life and how she enjoyed a Canadian Club.. A MEMORY IS WORTH MORE THAN GOLD, A GRANDMA IS PRICELESS.. I LOVE You Grandma and will miss you everyday. Lisa, Grant, Riley, Carter

  • Jean Hall ( AZ sister of Ethel Fitzpatrick) says:

    Todd was a gracious, lively friend that I only saw while visiting my sister in Kelowna, B C ,
    I truly enjoyed her each time we met. My sincere sympathy to her daughter Sharon and family in Australia.

  • Jill Brock (granddaughter) says:

    Here is what I know from Grandma Todd:
    1. A woman Never leaves the house without lipstick on!
    2. She had a knack and a passion for entertaining which she passed on to me!
    3. Todd, whenever I was around, Had a sparkle…it may have been her shoes or her bling… But truthfully, If I’m 98, put together so beautifully and Still the life of the party I’ll be ok! …

    Grandma Todd was my last living grandparent … So I’m sad. She lived an amazing and blessed life and she was a sweetheart to her grandkids… So, that’s all I could ask.

    Much love, Jill

  • Jamie Brock says:

    Many of the most enjoyable and entertaining moments growing up were spent with our Grandpa and Grandma. Family gatherings still lead to talk of events from 25+ years ago. We enjoyed spending time with them in our younger years in Willowdale, ON and traveling to Kelowna, BC as we grew up. Our Grandma was always happy, showered us with lots of love and she didn’t age at all from the oldest pictures/memories to the most recent. She will be missed by the whole family. Love Jamie, Meghan and Ben (Oakville, ON)

  • David Brock says:

    I still use many of the one-liners in social situations that I first heard (or overheard) from my Grandma Todd. She was truly funny, a throwback to a time that I often wish was still around: cocktail happy hours, writing letters by hand, birthday cards in the mail. She called me “Doll.” In my memory, she called everyone “Doll.”

    I won’t forget the time, driving in a VW van with a friend across British Columbia, she let us stay the night with her and Grandpa Bill and she ensured we were well fed, well drank, and well loved.

    She was family, and I will miss her. An amazing woman, and I endeavor to live my life as fully as she had.

  • Brian and Bonnie Davis says:

    Dear Sharon, David and Family, We just heard about Aunt Gladys’ passing. Please accept our sincere condolences. She was such a vibrant women, with an unmatched zest for life. We have many fond memories of our family reunions when all the ‘Nut Sisters’ would be in the room, giggling away. What a fun group!

    Sincerely, Brian and Bonnie Davis (Saskatoon, SK)
