With great sadness, the family announces the passing of Matilda Louise Bedard (Tillie) on August 28, 2020 at Burnbrae Gardens in Campbellford, Ontario in her 82nd year.
She is survived by her dearly beloved husband of 62 years, Richard Bedard. She was the daughter of the late Albert and Carrie Gander of Blenheim, Ontario. Tillie was a loving and devoted mother of Michael and Alexandra Bedard of Brighton, Ontario and Paul and Karen Bedard of Kemptville, Ontario. She was a cherished Nana to Colin, Justin, Matthew and Emily. She will be deeply missed by her sister Priscella McMullen, nieces Sarah McMullen, Barbara Beatty and husband David. As well as nieces and nephews originally of Ridgetown, Ontario.
Tillie’s greatest joys were spending time with family, picking wild blueberries and looking for sea shells on the beach. She had such a talent for gardening, baking, wood working and sewing projects. Tillie was known as the ‘cookie lady’ by all of the dogs in her neighbourhood. She had an infectious laugh and a great sense of humour.
The family wishes to express their sincere appreciation to Island Park Retirement Residence and Burnbrae Gardens for their exceptional support and care.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in memoriam to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada.

Our deepest sympathy to Dick and family. We have missed you very much since leaving Strathroy. You were great neighbours. I can still hear Tillie's laugh from the front porch. She always took such an interest in all of our girls and showed such kindness. She will be greatly missed. We think of you often.

Dearest "Cookie Lady", we have missed you since you moved from Strathroy. There are MANY dogs who still stop at your former house and stare pathetically, Fancy included. May you rest in peace. Many condolences to your family on their loss of a lovely mother and wife.

Our condolences to Dick and family. I loved going across the road when we both lived on Helen Drive in Strathroy. Tillie and Dick were always interested in how Tiffany and Jody were doing in hockey and where they were in their schooling.
Dick had many good memories of working with my mother on the hospital board in Strathroy.

Dear Dick and Family.
We all loved Tillie her infectious laugh and her loving ways. She was always a constant at all our family events.
Many trips were made to Bracebridge for Tillie and Dick could visit with Mom. They were her second family. Tillie always made my Mom laugh.
Our condolences to Dick and Mike and Alex and Paul and Karen and Families. Thinking of you all.
Drew and Pat Corbett and Family.
