Ernie McConomy

It is with deep sadness that

we announce the passing

of Ernest (Ernie) Warren

McConomy at the Vernon

Jubilee Hospital, on April

8, 2010.

Ernie will be sadly missed

and lovingly remembered by his wife Joan (Jo) and

his children Carol Hill, Lynne Brockway(Gordon),

Elaine Swan, Bruce McConomy (Janet) and Judy

Vogel(Ken); grandchildren Aaron, Merilee (Travis),

Jaimie, Brendon, Jordan, Jeffrey, Derek, and Steven;

and great grandchildren, Brock and Quinn. He will

also be fondly remembered by Warren & Dolores

Bahen, Sheldon Swan & family, and his many nieces,

nephews and friends.

Ernie was born on February 4th, 1924, in Montreal,

Quebec. In 1950, he married Joan Brown and they

were happily married for nearly sixty years. Ernie and

Joan spent many rewarding years raising their family

in Montreal, Pointe Claire, and Lac Echo before

moving to Ottawa in 1979. They retired to Vernon

in 1990, where they enjoyed many active retirement

years together.

Ernie was a talented athlete who played hockey,

tennis, softball, and especially golf. He spent many

great days on the Spallumcheen golf course with his

golf partner, Joan, and friends, Glenn and Ron.

Ernie considered his greatest accomplishment to be his

family. He took great pride in the greatest and smallest

accomplishments of his children, grand-children,

and great-grandchildren. Some of his fondest times

were spent golfi ng and playing cards(particularly

cribbage), with his children and grandchildren. Ernie

had wonderful times at family reunions and was very

proud of the McConomy trophy awarded at family

golf and bocce ball tournaments.

In recent years, despite being legally blind and in

failing health, Ernie still remained positive and never

lost his sense of humour, continuing to enjoy his

family, friends, and his special canine friend, Honey.

A Memorial Mass led by Father Dale Normandeau

was held on Monday, April 12, 2010, at 10:00 A.M. at

St James Catholic Church in Vernon.

Donations in Ernie’s memory may be contributed to

the C.N.I.B. 1929 Bayview Ave, Toronto, Ontario,

M4G 3E8.
