GLADYS MARY PETRIE It is with deep sadness that the Petrie family announces the passing of Gladys Mary Petrie (nee Scrimgeour), with family at her side, on Wednesday, April 9, 2014, at the age of 95. Beloved wife of the late Robert Inglis Petrie. Survived by her loving children: Janet Petrie, Ross Petrie, Catherine Dyer (Jim), Deborah Waugh (Harry), Peter Petrie (Linda) and David Petrie (Heather Moffat); her grandchildren: James Dyer (Kristina) and Ashley, Kylie and Jordan Dyer, Stuart and Craig Petrie and Nicholas and Matthew Petrie; her great- granddaughters: Alexandra and Katrina Dyer; her nieces: Donna Scrimgeour (Bill) and Karen Marquardt; and sister-in-law: Isobel Petrie. She will be greatly missed by her family and many friends, both far and near. Gladys was born in New Amsterdam, British Guyana, and raised there and in San Fernando, Trinidad. She came to Oshawa for high school and to Toronto for Nursing at Toronto Western Hospital. Gladys and Robert were married in 1949 and moved to Edmonton in 1957, where they raised their family, finally returning to Toronto in 1974. Gladys and Robert travelled to many locales around the world; then Gladys continued her travels with friends. Over the last 25 years Gladys has enjoyed spending her time with her family and watching her grand and great-grandchildren grow and mature.
