Death*22 June 2009 Woodrow Blakely died on 22 June 2009 at Picton, Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada, at age 87.1 
oObit*2009  In 2009 the obituary of Woodrow Blakely read: Woodrow Blakely, the proud Second World War veteran known as Prince Edward County's "Mr. Remembrance" has died at the age of 87. A memorial service was held at Picton United Church on Monday, June 22, with Rev. Dr. Hal Wilson officiating. Blakely, who was a history teacher at Prince Edward Collegiate Institute, for many years, passed away, suddenly, at his home, last Thursday.
Born in Picton, in 1922, he was the son of the late Harry and Marion Blakely, staunch supporters of Picton United Church. Like his parents, Blakely maintained strong ties with the church, throughout his life. In an account written for The Stone Church, commemorating Picton United Church's 200th anniversary, Blakely recalled that he met his wife, the former Virginia Batton, at a teen club called the Reycraft Juveniles, a group named after the United Church minister, Rev. Reycraft. He left Picton to begin studies at Queen's University, in 1941 and, in 1943, joined the army. He was wounded in Normandy, where he served with the Royal Winnipeg Rifles. Blakely spent time in English hospitals, before being sent back to Canada, in January, 1945. Deeply affected by his wartime experiences, he became one of the strongest supporters of Picton's Branch 78, Royal Canadian Legion and served as its president, from 1976-78, 1984-85 and 1989-90. In The Stone Church, he wrote, "The Legion, as well as the church, has played a large role in my life." In 2004, he returned to Juno Beach, with the late Rev. Ed Horton, regimental chaplain for the Winnipeg Rifles, whom he had originally met in Normandy, to mark the 60th anniversary of D-Day. He recalled that he was 22 years old when he landed on the war-torn beach, which he would later revisit on several occasions prior to the D-Day anniversary. When Branch 78, Royal Canadian Legion celebrated its 75th anniversary, in 2005, Blakely recalled taking part in its early fundraising projects, including Variety Minstrel Shows at Picton Armouries. "In the 1948 show Bill McLean asked me to play the part of Al Jolson and sing 'Mammy'. To get the full effect, including Jolson's voice, the main curtain was drawn, a large, high-quality record player was placed behind the curtain and I did a lip-sync. With the exception of the people in the first few rows, I fooled the audience. They were convinced I was actually singing," he recalled. For many years, Blakely, a member of Prince Edward Lodge A.F. and A.M. No. 18, G.R.C., was also its organist. A true patriot, traditionally he spoke each year, on Nov. 11, during the annual Remembrance Day services at Picton United Church. A keen historian, Blakely was also closely involved with each year's annual service at the White Chapel and, shortly before his death, gave a newspaper interview in which he recounted its history. Proud veteran, dedicated teacher and a conservator of history, Woodrow Blakely gave generously of his time and talents, in support of his community. The well-known Picton resident is survived by his wife, Virginia, daughter, Linda (Mrs. Larry Boyce) of Wellington, son, Jim, (Cathy) of Picton and grandchildren Greg, Natasha, Gavin, Briar, Lucas, Marni, Jamie, Michael, Ryan, Alyssa and their families. He was predeceased by his son, Gordon, and brothers Clealan, Jack, Willis, and Robert.1
