You are here


It is with unbearable sadness that I announce the passing of my beautiful wife, Angela.

Angela was our everything and her passing leaves her family with an emptiness that is indescribable.

Angela's passion was her sons, Bryce and Jared, family, friends, employees, and customers.

Angela was in business with her husband, Rick, and they are owners of the Canadian Tire in Kingston. Angela made friends easy, and her caring and remarkable attitude resonated in success whenever and wherever her family's journey took them.

Angela's love of the lake in Fort Frances, Ont., her oceanfront home off the Grand Banks of Newfoundland, or acres of countryside outside of Nipigon, Ont. held only the dearest of memories during her Canadian Tire journey with her family.

Angela and her family were blessed with an opportunity to live and travel throughout New Brunswick, Ontario, and the Maritime provinces.

Angela had a remarkable talent for crafts, sewing, painting, scrapbooking, and quilting, and her homes always were filled with her personal treasures.

The last number of years afforded Angela the opportunity to travel and hike throughout the Whistler, Banff, and Lake Louise areas with very special girlfriends, Terri, Marie, and Mary. Angela also loved the islands of the Caribbean and the special vacations shared with special friends, Brad and Nancy.

While Angela's short, hard-fought battle with brain cancer was difficult, her outlook on life and her love story will be passed down through her children and one day their children.

Angela is survived by her husband of 34 years, Rick; sons, Bryce and Jared; her parents, Barb and the late Murray Yake; brother, Albert and wife, Cathy, and sister, Jennifer Taylor; mother-in-law, Bonnie Smith and the late Ron Smith; sister-in-law, Donna Whitcroft, and brother-in-law, Rob Smith and wife, Lisa; as well as her many aunts and uncles, nephews, and cousins she so dearly loved.

Please join the family for visitation at the H.A. Kebbel Funeral Home, 119 Talbot Street East, in Aylmer on Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017 from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m., where the celebration of her remarkable life will be held on Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017 at 2 p.m.

Please make any in memoriam donations on Angie's behalf to “Jumpstart.”
