Obituary

Lucy M P Gomer (née Mercer)

Lucy left us peacefully on Wednesday, October 14th, 2020, in her 98th year, after a long and busy life. Born in Dublin, Ireland, she grew up in London, England. In 1940, Lucy enlisted in the RAF as a radar operator where she met a Canadian radar technician, John G. S. Gomer, whom she married on July 29th, 1944. Six months later, pregnant with their daughter Mary, Lucy bravely crossed a U-boat infested North Atlantic alone on a war-bride ship, arriving at Pier 21 in Halifax in February, 1945. Her 7-day train journey from Halifax to John’s family’s home in Toronto was her introduction to the vastness of Canada.

The birth of Mary (1945-2002) was followed by 4 more daughters and a son: Ann Sunahara (David) of Ottawa, Joan Murphy (Jim) of Burlington, Ruth Adlam (the late Mike) of Elora, Susan Marshall (the late Simon) of Lichfield, England and Peter (Carol Ireland) of Wasaga Beach. In addition, Lucy leaves behind four younger siblings, nine grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren.

A life of volunteerism, service to church and community, choral music, embroidery, sports events, reading and, after John’s passing in 1979, travel, kept Lucy’s mind sharp to the end.

The family is very grateful to the staff of Creek Way Village Long Term Care in Burlington, who cared for her so well in these difficult times. Her Zoomed 97th birthday party in May, 2020 will remain a fond family memory.

A private funeral service will be held on Monday, October 19th at 12:00 p.m. at All Saints Anglican Church in Collingwood, Ontario. When we can safely gather together again, we will celebrate her life. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity of your choice in Lucy’s memory.

My condolences to all of Lucy’s family. I used to visit Lucy when she could no longer get out to church. She was such a delight to visit, always sharing her experiences and knowledge. It was through Lucy that I learned more about the ‘war brides’. One of my favourite memories was the day I arrived to have tea with Lucy. When I knocked, Lucy called out that I should come in. I found her sitting on the floor with her back to the couch. She had fallen and although unhurt, she couldn’t get up so did the next best thing and made her myself comfortable. I could not help her up by myself but she told me not to worry, she had put a call in and help was on the way from Red Cross. Lucy told me to make tea and we enjoyed our visit sitting side by side on the floor. We had a lovely visit & help did arrive as we finished our tea. So many fond memories of a great lady.
