Golchuk, Constance Marion 'Connie'

Connie passed away peacefully with her daughter by her side at the Meaford Long Term Care Centre on Wednesday, May 18, 2022 at the age of 87.

Connie was predeceased by her beloved husband, Andy, in September 2021.

She was the much loved mother of Marjie and Steven, grandmother of Catie (Andre), and Dylan,  Gabbi and Jenna, and great grandmother of 4.

Connie had a very rich and satisfying life and was never afraid to try new things.  She went from a very rewarding career in banking in the Niagara Region, to buying 3 Motels with Andy, which were all further north.  By the time they bought their 3rd Motel in Meaford, Connie decided she would like to be a tour escort and travel worked for Hanover Holiday Tours for the next 20 years, travelling world-wide.  Connie adored her family and would always come home literally loaded down with gifts for everyone.  She was truly loved and will be deeply missed.

She spent her last 3 years, along with Andy, at the Meaford Long Term Care Centre., after developing sudden health issues.  She made the best of her situation, and thoroughly enjoyed her time there.  She enjoyed partaking in many activities, and became dear friends with every one of the staff.  She truly thought of them as family.

As your expression of sympathy and because of her great love for animals, donations to the Owen Sound Animal Shelter, where Connie adopted all her beloved pets, or the Meaford Nursing Home Auxiliary (Cheques Only Please), would be appreciated and may be made through the Ferguson Funeral Home, 48 Boucher St. E., Meaford, ON   N4L 1B9 to whom arrangements have been entrusted.   www.fergusonfuneralhomes.ca

    The night of the 12th and 13th I was on nights and tended to her.
    She was calm these two nights. But it was prior, she was not.
    On the 12th before dawn, she opened her eyes and lifted her head to me as I came in the room. A glow on her face and in only what I can describe as a face of surprise in recognizing someone that she didn’t expect to arrive.
    She was looking through me not at me as I thought at first and I knew this because when I moved father into the room she still held her gaze looking at the doorway which I came through.
    Then she went to sleep restfully for the first time.
    The next night she woke and did the very same thing when I was in her room sitting with her on my break holding her hand.
    And she was at peace.
    I forgot to tell you Marjie when you came in the morning of her passing, and I was talking to you, comforting you before I left.
    Sometimes we see things and it’s a comfort to the family in sharing these moments.
    I think Andy came in, and took her home. She saw someone and I could feel the energy in the room.
    I will miss her and I will miss seeing you too. I’m so sorry for your loss. I liked your mom and dad very much.
    Hugs Chris s. Psw nights

    Margie, Steven and families, I am so very sorry for the loss of your mom. Connie was kind, always smiling, a generous, loving, thoughtful wife, mom, grandma and friend to many. You will miss her terribly, I hope the love of your community and the many wonderful memories you have of your mom will bring you comfort. My sincerest condolences.

    Connie, you were my friend. You could make me laugh, big belly laughs. We could talk for hours on the phone. When you became sick, our friendship continued until covid stopped all visiting for such a long time. Out of your illness, my friendship with Marjie formed and grew over the past few years.
    Marjie, We are so sorry for your loss. I know how much your mom and dad meant to you. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
    Much love,
    Ken and Debbie Laycock
