Funeral Home Ottawa - Westboro Chapel
Peacefully on 21st June in Ottawa at the Lord Lansdowne Retirement Residence. Daisy enjoyed classical music of all kinds, but especially chamber, organ and choral music, walking, the Globe and Mail crossword, borrowing books from the public library system, dogs and cats, curling and golf. She and her husband, J. Keith Gordon, were longtime members of the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club. Daisy reluctantly stopped golfing only when a mended ankle impeded her game in her early 80s. She was also an active member of Rideau Park United Church and its choir and UCW. Daisy volunteered for years at the Ottawa Hospital Rehabilitation Centre, Meals on Wheels, and for the East Ottawa Lions Club as a parent of burgeoning track athletes. Daisy leaves her sister Maxine and brother Marshall (Yvonne Del Mastro) Slessor, her children Karen (Hans Moor), Peter (Susan) and Heather (Ray), her grandchildren Leah, Julia, Andrew and Mark, and many cherished friends. The family thanks the staff at the Lord Lansdowne, Nelson Usher RPN, Drs. Chew, Thompson, Aldridge for their compassionate care. Visitation will be held on August 19th from 7-9 p.m. at Tubman Funeral Homes (403 Richmond Rd, Ottawa). A celebration of life will take place at 11 a.m on August 20th at Rideau Park United Church. Donations in memory of Daisy can be made to Rideau Park United Church, the Ottawa Hospital Rehabilitation Centre or to a charity of your choice.
