Ellen Elizabeth Williams (nee Henry), beloved mother, grandmother, and retired teacher, passed away peacefully on February 21, 2023, at Hospice Niagara, in St. Catharines, Ontario after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Born on January 17, 1945, Ellen dedicated her life to her family, her teaching career, and being an active member of her community. Ellen will be fondly remembered by her friends at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Horticultural Society where she was an active member for many years. More details here.

Jean Cochrane on Saturday, Jan 7. Jean was a life member of the Niagara-on-the-Lake Horticultural Society, joining as a member in 1988. She was instrumental, along with Sheila Hirsch-Kalm, in developing and nurturing the Gardens of Hope Daffodil gardens, and was a founder of the popular Garden of the Week program. The loss of both Jean and Sheila Hirsch-Kalm, both within weeks of each other, marks the end of an era for our society.
A memorial for both members will be planned for the spring.
On December 7th, four dedicated NOTL Hort Society members, Alice Rance, Ingrid Regier, Hilda Ellard, and Kim Mustill volunteered for the day and enjoyed sorting and tagging hundreds of poinsettias at the Van Nort greenhouse before they delivered them to 250 seniors at Pleasant Manor, Chartwell Seniors Residence and Upper Canada Lodge. Part of the Horticultural Society's mission is to give back to the community – one of the many ways this is done is by providing flowers to individuals residing in local senior residences or in long-term hospital stays.
