Information: The Passing of a Member The passing of a family member is a difficult time for all concerned. The best advice for a prospective Estate Executor is to consult with, and accept the advice of, a qualified lawyer. Provincial laws are subject to change and may contain subtle phrasing beyond the knowledge of the average person. It is important that all members of RTO/ERO be aware of the following, in the event that they need to provide assistance to the surviving family. If the survivors themselves are not full members of RTO/ERO, they may not be aware that they may continue their coverage within the RTO/ERO Health Plans. If their existing policy indicates Couple or Family coverage, then the survivors could be eligible for Associate Membership, and therefore continued RTO/ERO Health Plan Coverage. This seamless transfer of membership would enable them to continue their existing coverage without the need for evidence of medical insurability. This request should be made within sixty days of the passing of the member. In order for survivors to continue with RTO/ERO Health Plan Benefits, the Executor needs to contact our Plan Administrator, Johnson Inc 1- 877-406-9007 and request that a document entitled “Continuation of Benefits Form” be mailed to him/her. This form will require the name of the new Associate Member. For this membership, a single fee is paid once a year in December (prorated during applications at any other time of the year). This form will also require the choice of the Health Plan(s) desired for continuation of coverage. Premiums are paid monthly. This form along with a death certificate would then be mailed as per the instructions on the form. If further information would be of assistance, then contact the RTO/ERO office at 1-800-361-9888 or 1-416-962-9463. You may also contact our website at www.rto-ero.org.
Goodwill Report, Bernice Whalen We are saddened by the losses that have occurred within District 3 since October. Our deepest sympathy goes out to the families of: Orlo Challice, James Spencer , Peter Astles, Julien Chaperon, Patricia Currie, William Ferguson, Linda King, Ellen Manzo, Gayle Mendicino, Thomas McNally, Carol Johnson, Bruce Dewhirst, Hermance St. Jules, Shirley Pozzebon, Alexia Newey, Alison Beaton, Lois Davies (sister-in-law to Carl Krivan) Charles Moody (husband of Jane Moody), Robert Wismer (father of Shelley Gold), Walter Dowhaniuk (husband of Carmen Dowhaniuk) Jonathan Poitras (son of Kathy Poitras), Colin McLean (husband of Barbara McLean), William Garside (son of Marjorie Garside), Irene Harrison (mother of Robert Harrison), Wilfred Gallander (father of Brenda Gallander). Donations were made to the RTO-ERO Foundation in their memory. Ten sympathy cards were also sent to members experiencing a loss of a sibling or close family member. Twenty-nine tins of cookies or Tim Horton’s cards were delivered or sent on your behalf to those with medical challenges of which we were aware. Sixty-five birthday greetings were sent to those 80+. 274 out of town Christmas cards were prepared and mailed to those in District 3 outside the immediate area. Special thanks to Marion Avery, Joyce Nicolson and Patricia Pateman for the hours devoted to this task. Kudos as well goes to Gary Wills for preparing address and return labels. Many thanks to the generous card donations from Judy Gooderham, Holly Wiicket, Linda Prodan, Gerry Yeo, Barbara Krmpotich. Elizabeth Szczotka, Pat Pateman. Carol McFarlane. Loretta McKay. Linda Greco, Michelle Punch and Susan Shepherd. Hopefully I haven’t missed any of our group who left packages at the door and in the mailbox. I was absolutely impressed that so many responded with one announcement at the October meeting-----but of course, RTO District 3 is noted for kindness and caring. Sixty-one cards and boxes of cookies were delivered as part of Christmas to our members over 85 years of age within the city. Thank you for the elves who helped me with this delivery: Sherrill Dewar, Bill Purnis, Elta McLeod, Carmelina Spry, Gary Wills, Marie and Folgo Della Vedova as well as Francis Whalen. If you are aware of one of our members being incapacitated due to any misfortune, please phone 705-945-1074 and leave a message on my answering machine at home or e-mail me at bernicewhalen89@shaw.ca . In the same vein, if you are aware of the death of one of our members or of a RTO-ERO member losing a family member please let me know. It is difficult for me to know maiden names or have easy media access to information outside the parameters of the immediate area. I do depend upon all my team mates for information. As my predecessor (Marilyn Patterson) always stated: “Welcome to the Goodwill committee. You are a critical part of the team!” Together what a difference we make!!!
My Mom’s Passing Kathryn Haddock Thank you so much to Algoma RTO for faithfully reaching out and acknowledging my mom, Carol Elizabeth Johnson, every year, on her birthday and at Christmas. We celebrated her 101st birthday with her on Dec. 11, 2018 and she passed on Dec. 22, 2018. Thank you for your years of support. I personally enjoyed my years in Sault Ste. Marie as an occasional teacher. I moved to Waterloo in 1997 and have been an elementary principal since 2009 with WRDSB. Thank you for all you have done for my mom and for me.
From the family of a member…
