In Loving Memory of Peter Whiteside – (1943-2021)

Peter Whiteside passed away peacefully, with family by his side, at the Cornwall Community Hospital on Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021; at age 78. Peter grew up in Moulinette and moved to Long Sault during the creation of the St. Lawrence Seaway in 1958. He often reminisced and shared stories of growing up in the Lost Villages. Peter graduated from C.C.V.S. and then from McGill University with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. While attending McGill, Peter married his high school sweetheart, Dorothy Raymond in 1964. He then attended Queen’s University to earn his Bachelor of Education. Peter taught mathematics at both General Vanier Secondary School and Cornwall Collegiate & Vocational School from 1966 – 1997. Peter loved to socialize, travel, discuss current events with his coffee crew, and watch the Leafs and Blue Jays games. He was immensely proud of his family – especially his grandchildren.
Peter is predeceased by his loving wife Dorothy, his parents (Thomas Douglas Whiteside, Bess Whiteside), his siblings (Richard Whiteside, Joyce Carson, and Jane Craig), and his in-law family (Keitha and George Raymond, Annie Peddie, and Red Carson).
Peter is survived by his loving companion and best friend, Madeleine Lemieux; his children, Judy (Guy Lamarche), Tom (Kristin); his grandchildren Nick, Emilie, Ava, and Marissa. Peter will be greatly missed by his nieces and nephews; Rod Carson, John Carson, Nancy Candelaria, Doug Craig, Ann Hornback, Byron Raymond, and Bruce Raymond. He will also be fondly remembered by his in-law family (Jim Craig, Ralph Peddie, Arthur and Jo-Ann Raymond).
Many thanks to the staff and doctors at both the St. Lawrence Medical Clinic and the Cornwall Community Hospital, family and friends for prayers and expressions of support, and a special heartfelt thanks to Dr. Yu, Dr. Westergaard, and Caitie Chabot for the compassionate end-of-life care and support that was provided to Peter and family.
In Lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of choice would be appreciated.
Due to COVID regulations, a private family funeral service will be held.

Please accept my deepest sympathy on the recent passing of Peter. It is so regrettable that COVID prevents our expressing sympathy i person. We were colleagues and friends at C,C.V.S. for many rears, and enjoyed more than a few games of Hearts in the staff room during the lunch break. We had great fun during our pre-COVID Thursday breakfasts over the fact that we shared May 1 as our birthday". He was an effective and respected "master teacher" (unfortunately not an official title), and brooked no nonsense in the classroom. As friend, he was caring and jovial. I shall miss him.

My condolences to Peter’s family. He was Mr. Whiteside when I was in school at GVSS but he was Peter when my Mum & I would meet up with him in the grocery store and they would strike up a conversation about Moulinette memories. A kind and humble man, but also an inspirational teacher who’s legacy will live on.
