Earla Abrams Obituary

There must have been one heck of a reunion in Heaven on Saturday, July 30th, 2022, when our beloved Mom, Doreen Abrams, reunited with the love of her life, Ralph, and many other family members and friends.

Mom will be deeply missed by her daughters, Lynne (David) Grant, Elaine (Lynn) Snider, and Sherrie (Jaime) Turcotte.

Doreen was a beloved grandma to Jennie (Greg), Kyle, Derek (Kat), Jacquie (Farsad) and Julia (Luke).  GG also leaves great-grandchildren, Shaylee, Krew, Ryan, Ben, Elliott, Sam, Max, Felix & Grayden.

Doreen was the eldest of 10 children born to Norman & Eva (Walker) Ryan of Hartington.  She is survived by her brother Rod (Marj) and sisters-in-law Bea and Donna, and predeceased by Ron, Marlene Haynes, Louie, Billy, Anne, Yvonne Hollywood and an infant sister.  She also had a very special relationship with the Abrams family and is survived by sisters-in-law Bernice Day, Norma Abrams, Marie Abrams, brother-in-law Les Abrams (Karen), and predeceased by brothers-in-law Don and Lyle Abrams, and sister-in-law Alice Clarke.  Aunt Dewey will also fondly be remembered by all her Ryan and Abrams nieces and nephews.

Mom was fortunate enough to be able to remain in “God’s Country” on the family farm in Holleford until her 91st year when she moved to the Waterford Retirement Home leaving a huge void in the Holleford community.  We appreciate the care she received from the Waterford, the LHIN, and KHSC (Connell #3).

It was important to Mom to have all her grandchildren at her service, so to accommodate them time to travel home, the Celebration of Life will not be held until Sunday, September 18th, 2022.  Visitation at the Harrowsmith Free Methodist Church (3876 Harrowsmith Road) will commence at 1:30 p.m. and the service will immediately follow at 4:00p.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated by the family.

Hoping the Blue Jays win for you this year!

Keep on tickling the ivories Mom!
