Mae Macmillan remembered

March 13, 1921 — June 14, 2019

Celebration of Life: Tuesday, July 2nd, 2 p.m., at Eglinton St-George’s United Church, 33 Litton Blvd., Toronto

Mae has been a beloved member of our community and our church since the day she arrived at Sturgeon Point as a young nurse, to help Amy and Clair Stewart with their growing family.  

It had been her plan to stay for the summer, but she did not plan on meeting the dashing Flavelle Macmillan. That one summer turned into a lifetime of summers, mostly spent at their cottage in Sandy Point. 

Mae joined the board of the Sturgeon Point Union Church in 1971. She helmed every conceivable position until her retirement, forty years later.  For a dozen years she served as secretary of the church and the record of meetings, captured in her beautifully hand-written minutes, filled with her charm and wit, are a joy to read.

Mae was much loved and will be much missed.  

It was Mae’s wish that the church, and the outreach work it does, be supported in her memory. Donations may be received two ways:

Peter Nicholas Breyfogle

September 24, 1935 – October 20, 2018

Celebration of Life: Saturday, July 21, 2019

The Sturgeon Point Union Church played a large role in Peter Breyfogle’s cottage life. He was a faithful member of the congregation for decades, and served as chair of the church board, and trustee of the building he loved,  for more years then we can remember.  He will be sorely missed by his Point family, by Jo, Nick, Jillian, Charlie and Sam, and by his cottage friends. But he will also be missed by the church community. We look forward to being part of a Celebration of Life for Peter on Saturday, July 21, 2019
