RICHMOND, Inez Bertine (nee Chesney)

May 31, 1931- October 22, 2014

Inez Bertine Richmond, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and friend passed away on Wednesday October 22, 2014 at the age of 83.

Inez was born on May 31, 1931, to Gordon and Mary (Alsop) Chesney, in Buckhorn Ontario. Inez married William (Bill) Ragland Richmond in Bobcaygan, Ontario, on July 23, 1949. They lived and raised their 4 children in Bridgenorth, Midland and Barrie Ontario. Inez was an active member of the Presbyterian Church Women’s Group, in Barrie. Ontario. She created many quilts which will be cherished for many years. Following Bill’s death in 1996, Inez moved to Calgary Alberta where she remained until her passing. Her time in Calgary was spent with family and many friends she made at The Good Companions 50 + Club, where she loved to join in all the activities especially the dances.

Inez leaves behind her four children, Jean (John), Mary (Byron), William (Maggie/deceased), and Nancy (Mike), grandchildren, Sirkka, Ossi, Carina, Anna, Samantha, great-grandchild, Patrick, and her sister Fern Cummings. She was predeceased by her husband Bill, brothers Mervin and Hugh.

Inez will be remembered for her love of her family and friends. Her spunky, spirited personality made her the greatest Mom and Granny. She left an impression on all that met her. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to The Alzheimer Society of Canada. A celebration of her life will be planned for the summer of 2015 when she joins her late husband in Bobcaygan, Ontario.

  1. We were so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. She was so good to us when we were teenagers. We could always count on her to feed us, especially ice cream and chocolate sauce. Remember we used to go to your house, even when we knew you weren’t home, because we knew she would always welcome us (and feed us!).

  2. Dear Mary,
    We have many fond memories of your mom in her kitchen…eating her homemade desserts, playing cards and washing dishes. She always welcomed us with her cheery smile and has been a very special mother role model for me.
    Love, Cathy&Craig
