FOULDS, Mary Louise "Louise"
(née Matthew)
1921 – 2013
Passed away at home on Thursday, June 6. She is sorely missed by her husband of 71 years, Philip Foulds; daughter Barbara Selley (David); grandson Chris Selley; her sister Barbara Foulds (Derek) and nine nieces and nephews. She was a sister of the late Dee Dee Strickland. Louise was a wife, homemaker, cook and hostess extraordinaire; a liberal thinker; a poet (penning pithy verse on events locally and around the world); a family historian; a singsong instigator; a crossword puzzle devotee; a lover of all dogs, cats and pigeons that crossed her path; and a friend of many in Kingsville, Toronto and beyond- including the "thundering herd" of St. Hilda's 4T2 and special friends Jane Grayson, Gypsy Carroll and Lea Livelo, her caring companion of the past year. A memorial gathering will be held Saturday, June 15, 2013 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Avenue West, Toronto (2 lights west of Yonge Street). At a later date, there will be a gathering at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Olinda in Ruthven, Ontario where she was the historian and a chaplain for a number of years. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care or the Unitarian Universalist Church of Olinda. Condolences may be forwarded through

Joan & I were very sorry to learn of Louise's passing. I sent a card to your Etobicoke address but it was returned. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time.

I am sorry for your loss. Louise Foulds was a lovely person. She was good friends with my mother, Pat Keele, and I spent many a day listening in on their discussions of books and ideas. Later in life, when my mother had passed, Louise spent time with me discussing the writings of Elizabeth Kublar Ross. I have long admired her quiet strength and intelligence. I am honored to have known her.
