Avis de décès

Anthony Ready

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Anthony (Bert) Ready age 61 who died on December 28th, 2020 in Quebec City. He was predeceased by his parents Lloyd and Jean (Morrissey) Ready, brothers Edward, Allen and Gerard. He is survived by Sisters, Frances, Nora and Myra (Hum) and Brothers, Billy, Freddie and Paul, as well as many cousins, nephews, nieces and grandnieces.

Bert grew up on the Blind Road in Tignish, Prince Edward Island where at a young age he had the good fortune of hearing tales from both Irish and Acadian raconteur storytellers. This exposure instilled a passion to collect material and write and publish his Island Ribald folklore book series, “Good Sainte Anne”, and “Tales from the Brambles”. He was an accomplished writer who was a regular contributor to the island magazine “Red, The Island Story Book”.

A graduate of the University of PEI with a teaching degree, he embarked on his teaching career in Thompson, Manitoba, and he subsequently moved to the province of Quebec to teach in a Private school in Montreal and later joined the faculty of “CEGEP Limoilou” in Quebec City, where he taught until his 2016 retirement. Throughout his storied career, he was a dedicated educator and his passion for teaching was well recognized and admired by both his students and colleagues. Bert used his unique island humour to connect with his students to get his points across. His influences on young minds will always be remembered.

During Bert’s long teaching career beginning in Canada’s Far North, he made some enduring longtime friendships and close friends that he considered family.
In his retirement he developed a keen interest in genealogy and began researching his family tree which resulted in a prized family document that chronicled the storied past of the Morrissey and Ready ancestors’ settlement on Prince Edward Island.

Bert always the entertainer, loved to cook, bake and enjoy a good discussion of politics, life and the weather forecast with family members and friends.
Bert sure loved a good snowstorm!

The family would like to acknowledge and thank all his longtime friends: Stuart, Anne, Linda, Janis K, Janice A, Joan, Dominic and especially Mark, Dirk and Jennifer for their condolences and generous assistance during these trying Covid times.

In the years I've been at CEGEP Limoilou, I was considering dropping out. Anthony made me think otherwise. He kept me hard at work getting better with english which I thought I had mastered years ago. It was with a surprise that I learned of his passing through my work in the paramedic's logistics. Rest in peace and know well assured that I carry deep and fun memories of you, Mr. Ready.

Mr. Ready was THE best English teacher I have ever had and I have had an English class every year since elementary school. Through his passion and humor, he taught me how to how to really talk and write like a true native English speaker. I now use English at work everyday and every time I am complimented on my accent, I think of him and his class. I am honored to have been a student of his. I am truly saddened, my sincerest condolences to all his family and friends.

My sincerest condolences to all of Bert’s friends and family. It was a privilege for me to have worked with him at Collège Saint-Paul in Varennes Québec many years ago. His sense of humour and his take on life were unique and refreshing: so many memories of intense guffaws in the teachers’ room! So sorry that I will no longer have the opportunity to enjoy his company again but am grateful that our paths crossed so many years ago.

Quel bien triste départ. Je ne pourrai oublier de ce cher collègue, au collège Saint-Paul, les moments de belle folie qu’il parvenait à créer par ses mimiques et son imagination débordantes. Malgré les nombreuses années depuis qu’il a quitté le collège, son très bon souvenir est et demeurera vivace en nos esprits. Sincères condoléances à tous ses proches. Jean

Je garde de Bert d'excellents souvenirs, bien sûr de ses nombreuses et douces folies, mais aussi de son professionnalisme et de son implication généreuse auprès de ses élèves, et de ses compagnons et compagnes de travail.
