Sybil and David married in 1940 and lived a life full of adventure and love together. Sibyl found her passion as a teacher, inspiring students every day. David was also a teacher before joining the Armed Forces where he landed on Normandy beach on D-Day plus one. After serving his country for over twenty-five years, David and Sybil traveled the globe together. Sybil was described as “The most colorful person in a room, (who) charmed anyone who was lucky enough to meet her”. David was known as a kind, gentle, generous person, who inspired many people. Together, they made an incredible impact on the lives of those around them.
David’s mother lived at Cumberland Lodge for many years. When David and Sybil planned their estates, they decided to leave a bequest to the Lodge in honour of the care his mother received.
Their generosity will continue to impact seniors in our community for years to come.
