Peacefully, at home, on Wednesday, September 22, 2021, Flora Harper (nee Hickey) passed away at the age of 88.  She has gone to heaven to be with her beloved husband, (late) John Allan McPherson Harper (1996).  She was the loving mother of Allan David Harper of London, Don William Harper (Lori) of Port Dover, Patricia June Harper of St. Mary’s, Carol Anne Harper of Exeter, and Nancy Lynn Harper of London.  Loving Grandmother of Trevor (Penny), Marsha Nicole, Adam (Heather), Georgina (Rory), Zoe, Aristidis, Yianni, and Great-Grandmother of Justin, Emily, Dillon, Keegan, Tyce, Riley, and Zavier.

Many fond memories of our many visits to the Harpers and Hickeys in London. I will always remember Aunt Flora for her lovely smile and her love of life attitude. She remained sharp and witty even into her elder years. I am sorry that I did not get to spend more time with this wonderful lady. At least she is not alone up there in Heaven. I am sure that all those who left before her, were waiting with open arms. Thinking of the Harper family today and always.

Tom and I are so sorry, our condolences to the family. I will miss my aunt who introduced me to many firsts in my life when I was a child. She took me to the CNE along with the girls. Fed me spaghetti and meatballs when the family was congregating in Scarborough for what would be another epic weekend. She introduced me to the simple, satisfying buttery egg noodles with salt and pepper. Still a favourite of mine. Aunt Flora I will miss you and your many stories. Love Kathy

So sorry for your loss.
