To Chauncey's family :  It's hard to put into words any thoughts of condolence to cope with this tragic loss.  I was a client of Chauncey for 5 plus years, until last year when I retired.  Not only did she walk my dogs every day while I was at work, she was my back up for days I had to be away for any length of time.  Sam would sometimes come with her to walk.  My heart goes out to Sam, may he find strength in those who love and surround him. To lose both Dave and Chauncey is unfathomable. My deepest sympathy to you for the loss of these two incredible people.

Barb, Brian & family.     Words cannot express how deeplysorry we are for your loss. Our thoughts & prayers are with you at this hard time.

Michael Mouritsen and Lucille Covelli - 2020-10-15 18:02:30

We were very sad to hear of Chauncey's tragic accident and death.  As neighbours of her family in Kincardine, we often talked with her as she visited her grandmother, Marg Riggin, across the street, usually accompanied by her son Sam, frequently with her husband Dave, and many times with one or more of her dogs.  She always seemed to be active - walking, cycling, adopting a new animal, looking after clients' dogs, and laughing!  She was such a force of nature, which makes it so difficult to believe we won't see her again. Our best wishes to her family as they process this incomprehensible event, and hoping they will find consolation in their many wonderful memories of this strong, bright, engaging, and warm daughter, grand-daughter, cousin, neice, sister, aunt, wife and mother.  

Dave and Sue Hawn - 2020-10-15 13:23:54

Dear Brian and Barb

It is with a heavy heart that we offer our condolences to you both and to Chauncey's extended family.  Leanne has fond memories of babysitting her many years ago in Kincardine.  You are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.  Her life was far too short but her memories will live on. Thinking of you - Dave and Sue

Chauncey was a truly beautiful person. Unmatched in her level of compassion and genuine kindness, the impact that she had on those who knew her was profound. Her light will forever shine on through those of us who she inspired during her time on this earth. Sending my deepest condolences and hoping that together you are finding the love and support you need in this difficult time. 

Shirley Gunter - 2020-10-15 07:32:01

Chauncey was a wonderful person. My deepest condolences to her family.

Barb, Brian and Sam, Please accept my sincere condolences for the passing of your beloved daughter and Mother. I have no words to express how sorry I am for what you and your entire family are facing now and in the days ahead.

I have fond memories of the times we shared during our B.I.A. Days. Chauncey always had a wonderful smile and a kind word.

May God give you strength and guide you during this sad time.

Lynne Di Cocco - 2020-10-14 20:31:25

To the Jackson Family,

Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your beautiful daughter. I taught Chauncey at W. E, Thompson and she was such a sweet and gentle little girl. Chauncey was a joy to have in the class. May the memories of happier times bring you peace.

David and Nikki Smith - 2020-10-14 19:44:04

Words cannot express how much we will miss visiting with Chauncey. We can't accept that you're gone too soon and in such a way that we didn't get to say goodbye. Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family including extended family and friends. We will never forget your thoughtfulness, your kindness and your acceptance of us as Dave's friends and untimateky as your friend. We could write and write here for a long long time but nothing we could say will touch on the feelings we had for you and the empty space you will leave. We will do what we can to fill that space and honour your life. It's all we have. Love David and Nikki

This beautiful quote makes me think of your sweet Chauncey. She was so many things to so many people. Please accept our heartfelt condolences.

"She showed up in life as herself, and that takes courage."

Joanne and Scott Kernighan - 2020-10-14 14:04:23

Don, Lynn and all of Chauncey's family

We are so deeply saddened by the passing of Chauncey, there are no words.  You have both held Chauncey is such high regard and admiration over the years and we know how much you truly held her in your heart not as a "daughter in law" but a daughter and a friend.  Don... you have always said that Chauncey is a true gift and the most selfless person.  This tragedy is an unfathomable loss.  Sam will be surrounded by his close relationship with both sets of Grandparents and extended family.  Sam will be given the same qualities over the years that both your family and the Jackson family instilled into Chauncey and David, which made them both truly remarkable, kind and loving parents.  There is no doubt that your families will honour their memories for little Sam. 

With our deepest symapathy,

Scott and Joanne Kernighan


Cairne Harper - 2020-10-14 10:36:49

Dear Barb and all of Chauncey's family, my heart breaks for you. I was lucky enough to have her in my Kindergarten class when she was five, the sweetest, dearest little girl in the world. Please accept my sincere condolences at this saddest time.

Joanna Koskamp - 2020-10-14 00:42:13

To the family and relatives of Chauncey Jackson Edwards! I am so sad to read about the passing of my high school friend Chauncey Jackson Edwards! I remember being invited to he parents house once when i attended KDSS. It was a privilege to have met Chanucey and her family. She always had a smile on her face! My condolences to her family,relatives,friends, neighbours and those who knew her. I will never forget you! Thanks for being my friend Chauncey! 

Hugh Cahill & Leanne Smith - 2020-10-13 22:39:49

Brian & Barb,

I can’t imagine what you’ve both been going through. Words can’t come close to express how we are both feeling right now, as I’m sure anyone who knew Chauncey would agree.  She truly was an amazing woman and will be missed in so many ways by so many, many people.  We were lucky enough to be one of her neighbours for the past 5 years, and are so thankful for it giving no us a chance to meet Chauncey & Dave.  She helped so many times when I moved in with Hughie, getting him after school from the bus, I don’t know what I would have done without her.  We’ll always remember her smile and great sense of humour, no matter what... even when the pigs or chickens got out 😊.  I know this is an awful thing for poor Sam to go through, but I hope that knowing how amazing his Mom was helps him through this. May she Rest In Peace 

Laura Stockland - 2020-10-13 21:29:10

Chauncey was always a ray of sunshine at Elgin Market. As the coordinator of our breakfast club program, she always stepped up to give all she could to our students. As Sam's mom, she demonstrated how strong, devoted, resilient and caring she was, despite dealing with so much. On behalf of all of our school, we promise to take good care of Sam for you and are honoured to have known you. Rest In Peace, you will be hugely missed.


Rachel butorajac - 2020-10-13 21:21:38

To Chauncey's family

My deepest sympathies to you during this horrible time - I have many fond memories of Chauncey both in high school, and in the time since, with us both living in our hometown.

Lorraine Needham & Neil Wood - 2020-10-13 21:06:38

Barb and family, our hearts broke when we read of Chauncey's passing.  You are in our hearts and prayers.

Anne Eadie - 2020-10-13 21:03:22

To all of Chauncey's family, especially Sam 

I had the privilege of teaching Chauncey in the primary grades at WET Thompson School. Although one of the youngest in her class with her October birthday, she was in many ways so mature with her kind, gentle nature and eagerness to learn. My sincere condolences to all members of the Jackson and Edward families during this extremely difficult time.

Dale H. Dolson - 2020-10-13 20:14:22

Dear Jackson, Riggin, and Edwards families...

Rob and I are heart-broken over Chauncey's, as well as Dave's passing!  She was a wonderful young lady with all the right passions... never about "self".  We feel privileged to have known her from the time she was a toddler until she was a dedicated young woman.  Her years were young, Barb and Brian, but some give far more in a short time than many in a lifetime... If there is any salvation in all of this, as two who have known you all for many years now, your families are a strong and caring foundation for young Sam. If there is anything at all that we can do for you, we are here.  Our thoughts are with you and we share your loss.

Rob and Dale.

June Slesser - 2020-10-13 17:22:04

My sincere condolences to Chauncey's family and friends. What a tragedy for everyone especially for Sam. May you find strength together and she will live on forever in your hearts ♥️ 

Joan and Wayne Hartwick - 2020-10-13 15:55:51

Our very deepest sympathy on the loss of your beloved Chauncey, and the loss of her beloved husband, David Edward as well.  I cannot fathom how you will navigate raising their son Sam, trying to come to grips with this tragic loss.  My heart breaks for all that knew and loved dear Chauncey.  May God be with you all.  Sincerely, Joan and Wayne Hartwick 


Carole Bylsma  - 2020-10-13 15:37:27

To Barb, Brian and all of Chaunceys family. Your hearts are broken with the loss of sweet Chauncey. I cannot heal your pain but I can pray that God will give you comfort and carry you through this the hardest time in your lives. ❤️

Dear Barb & Brian,

There are no words to express how very sorry we are to hear of Chauncey's passing. Sending our thoughts and prayers to you, Sammy and your family at this deeply saddening time. 

Jeff, Deb, Darby & Larissa Chalmers - 2020-10-13 13:01:05

To Chauncey's Family & Friends:  Although we did not personally know Chancey, she sounds like an amazing person.  I believe Jeff did some carpentry work on their home several years ago. We are so very sorry for this deep and tragic loss of not only Chauncey, but David as well.  We will keep you close in thought and prayer as you navigate your way through grief and healing.  Please accept our sincere condolences.
