Joe Bowman

Joe Bowman was a long time parishioner at the Church of the Epiphany. He was known in the area as the Mayor of Manor Park. He owned a Variety Store on the corner of Wharncliffe Rd and Emery St. Joe was a very generous man. If someone needed food, but couldn't afford to pay just then - no problem. Joe would give him what he needed. In reality Joe was the first food bank in the area, long before our church food bank. Joe was also a decorated war veteran. He was instrumental in forming the Manor and Highland Park War Restoration Committee when the cenotaph was vandalized beyond repair and had to be replaced. Back in 2011 Adam, Teresa's son Adam interviewed Joe for a school project. Here is an audio file of that interview.

Joyce Gillan

Here's a note from Joyce's daughter

Today, my inspiring mother passed away. I have always wanted to be as brave, adaptable and empathetic as Joyce Gillan. She faced extreme health problems particularly in the last year. Today, as per her wishes, nature was allowed to run its course. Mom's close family will always treasure their memories of her and try to live up to her example. We know friends, particularly those at Elmwood Long Term Care will miss her humour, understanding and baking! Thanks Mom for all of your heart for so long. Will miss you forever.
