RONEY, Rev. John (Jack) -
On Monday, April 12, 2021 at Lakeridge Health in Oshawa at the age of 93. Born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in 1928. Predeceased by his wife Frances White Hubbard and parents James and Isabella Roney (née Young). Survived by his sister Catherine Roney of Calgary, and his children Paul (Joanne), David, Mary Anderson (Craig) and their sons Colin and Trevor.

Jack was a graduate of Nutana Collegiate in Saskatoon, received a BEng from University of Saskatchewan in 1949 and LTh from Trinity College, U of T in 1956. He was ordained an Anglican Priest in 1956 and was married in 1957. Throughout his ministry he worked as a Curate at St. Clement’s Toronto and Rector at St. Paul’s Brighton, St. Giles Barrie, All Saints Whitby and St. Nicholas Birchcliff Scarborough. He retired in 1993. Jack was a 75 year survivor of Type 1 Diabetes and an avid lover of classical music, books and word games. Remembered by all who met him, Jack had a story for every occasion. He touched many lives, and lived life to its fullest.

Special thanks to the exemplary staff at Taunton Mills, the Charles H. Best Diabetes Centre and the ER staff at Lakeridge Health Oshawa.

I had the pleasure of knowing Rev Roney from All Saints Church, Whitby,ON and Toastmasters. Rev. Roney joined the club at Taunton Mills he enjoyed participating in the club activities. My sympathy to the family

We think of Jack as a “good and faithful servant”. Well mannered, mild mannered, gentle, thoughtful, reliable, willing to take chances, get out of his comfort zone, e.g. turning over in the sailboat and one foot through the roof of the old cottage, family oriented, I.e. always up to date with what is going on with his children and grandchildren, very detail oriented, should we go on?
We hope that contact with David, Mary and Paul will continue in some way. We pray for you every day.
God bless,
Mary and Bill Shepherd

I met Jack at the Village of Taunton Mills when my Mom was living there.

My condolences to the Roney family and friends. I loved seeing Jack sit in the front row for Tafelmusik, and how much he enjoyed the concerts. I will always be amazed at how he navigated the transit to downtown Toronto and back home late after a concert. On one such transit journey as a new medical student, I was so impressed hearing the story of his lifelong management of type 1 diabetes - truly remarkable. Thinking of you all, especially Paul, Joanne, and Mary, at this time.
