“Photography is a love affair with life.” – Burk Uzzle

Cindy had many moments in her life where she would pause, or stop the car on the side of the road, or gather people’s attention and then she would take a picture. It was a pastime that she enjoyed and to be honest, she was good at it. Not only did she like to take pictures but she also made sure she was in them as well, often asking a stranger for their assistance. Every picture had a story. Thankfully, these pictures will continue to facilitate many stories for Cindy’s friends and family in the years to come.

Cynthia Gail McNair was born on July 12, 1962 in Lethbridge, Alberta. She, along with her younger sister Jan, were raised solely by their mother Christena (Chris) McNair. The three of them remained in the Lethbridge area until Cindy reached grade six whereby they moved to Meaford. In her own words she was “Good Alberta Stock!” Sadly, Cindy’s mother suffered from the mental disorder, Schizophrenia and life at home was not always easy for the girls. In 1978 Cindy was taken in by foster parents Gilbert and Anita Bouchard in Walkerton. She quickly became one of the family, joining the Bouchard children, Dennis, Darryl and Jocelyn. Although her time there was short, only spanning a couple years, she remained close with the family for her entire life. After leaving Walkerton she finished high school in Port Elgin, at Saugeen, and graduated in 1982. She then enrolled in the nursing program at Georgian College in Owen Sound before later transfering to Administration.

Cindy soon settled in Paisley as she began working at the Royal Bank. Her athletic gifts allowed her to easily immerse herself in the community. She soon became involved in the Ladies Fastball league and also enjoyed curling. While working, she was introduced to one James Henry Davey and in perfect Cindy fashion she blurted out, “aahhh, you smell good!” As fate would have it, their paths continued to cross and they eventually began to date in 1992. The couple were married by Rev. Rounding at Knox United Church, Paisley on September 17, 1994. Their witnesses were Les Ribey and Robin Campbell.

By this time Cindy had switched jobs and she was now a secretary for Ontario Hydro. In later years it became Bruce Power and her role became Administration Assistant. She retired in April of 2016 after 28 years.

Once married the couple resided on James’ farm on Sideroad 30 in Bruce Township. Here they began their life together and their family. Devin soon joined them on November 30, 1996 with Spencer following on May 16, 2000. Life on the farm was busy, but Cindy continued to get out curling a couple nights a week and became a Beaver/Scout/Air Cadet leader as the boys grew. Apparently one condition of their marriage was that James had to take one week off in the summer. This often meant the family packed up and headed north to cottage country. Wigamog was a popular destination, but as long as it had a lake, a loon, food and water, Cindy was happy! The Daveys also occasionally headed south in the winters, often enjoying the Caribbean. Family trips to Disney in 2008 and Cancun in 2014 were favourites of hers as she enjoyed sharing it with her entire family AND she was able to swim with the dolphins! All of these moments were captured on film, as well as many others, including abandoned silos (just ask the boys) with literally thousands of pictures taken and collected over the years.

To be honest, Cindy’s family was her world! Whether it was spending time with James, the boys, her nieces and nephews, the Bouchards or in-laws, family came first! She was particularly close with James’ father, Alvin. He became a father figure in her life and wasn’t afraid to give her advice. One that came to mind was, “don’t ever learn how to drive a tractor,” apparently Cindy listened. She made a point to try and keep in touch and see everyone. She was social, approachable and loved conversation. She could make friends with anyone and often encouraged those around her with comments like, “those are the friends we haven’t met yet.” As James maybe put it best, “she could cut quite a swath” when conversing with others. Being outgoing, she was always putting others before herself.

It has been said that redheads might have a temper and Cindy was no exception. The boys often jokingly referred to her as “The Boss Lady” a term she apparently did not like! She was also known for her heavy foot, with a co-worker giving her the nickname Cindy Andretti. In her free time she enjoyed gardening, particularly her lilacs, and puttering around the house. She loved the colour green and appreciated everything Fall had to offer, especially the colours and scenery. Apparently she could mix a mean Caesar but also wasn’t afraid to enjoy a few of them herself as well! When it came to TV, it was usually a drama, which she would usually binge watch. She enjoyed listening to anything bagpipes but also heavier music as well, with George Thorogood’s “Bad to Bone” being a favourite.

Cindy tried to lead by example, particularly with her children and more recently her grandson. In her eyes if you were going to do something, do it right the first time and always mind your manners. She also recently celebrated eight years of sobriety and was very proud of her involvement with the AA organization locally. Retirement also allowed for further learning and opportunities. She became a certified foot reflexology practitioner in 2017. This meant welcoming clients into her own home, but also getting out to visit some of them as well. She also sold DoTerra Essential Oils. Retirement also meant more time for her great-nieces and nephews and her grandson Ethan. She treasured the time she was able to spend with all of them and always looked forward to her next visit.

Sadly, Cindy’s life was cut short and she passed away suddenly on Thursday, June 28, 2018 at the young age of 55.

Beloved wife of James. Loving mother of Devin (Kristin Stewart) and Spencer. Cindy absolutely cherished her young grandson Ethan. Sister of Jan Engel of Owen Sound and special aunt to Jen, Travis, Jessica and their families. She will be missed by James’ siblings Elroy, Sheila (Jerry) Burrows, Nancy Steinbach (Jim McLiwain), Thomas (Theresa), Delbert (Kim) and Brent. Cindy will be forever remembered by the entire Bouchard family as well as her extended family and close friends. She was predeceased by her mother Christena McNair, foster father Gilbert Bouchard, in-laws Alvin and Margaret Davey, foster brother Darryl Bouchard, and sister-in-law Wanda (Larry) Machan.

Visitation will be held at Knox United Church, Paisley (399 Goldie St.) on Wednesday from 6 - 9 p.m. and again on Thursday from 6 - 9 p.m. A funeral service celebrating Cindy’s life will be held at the Paisley Curling Club (391 Queen St. N.) on Friday, July 6, 2018 beginning at 2 p.m. At Cindy’s request an “Irish Wake” will follow until 7 p.m. Cremation will follow.

Memorial donations to The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy.

James, Devin & Spencer. To say that I am shocked to hear of Cindy's passing is an understatement. Having known Cindy at Bruce Power and through Port Elgin Scouting, I can only say that she spent much of her time talking about her family and how much she loved them. I didn't know that she had become a grandmother but I'm sure that she was the best grandmother ever. Please accept my heartfelt and deepest condolences.

Our Testimonials

Nothing comes to my mind as to what you could have done to improve our experience. My whole family was so pleased, as was I, with every detail. All of the details were so well presented and the full staff were so helpful. In terms of pricing, we received what we asked for ten-fold. Every aspect of Jim’s funeral was so well presented and we would certainly pass this on to others. 

Karen Siegrist

There was nothing that could have been improved. (Except the weather!) The prices were reasonable, especially with the services provided. Thank you so very much. With such a large family, everyone was very pleased on professionalism and presentation.

Terrilea Fidler

I don’t think there is anything more you could have done. Everything was so professionally done, in our experience. I don’t know any place that goes the extra mile to help families accommodate their needs. Nothing could have been improved. We could not have been more satisfied.

Reta Steward

It felt as if you had met and knew John! All of us agreed that John would have approved. Many friends commented on how lovely the service was and how it suited John.

Cathie Stauffer

I really can’t think of anything you could have done to better improve our experience. The only other funeral that I helped arrange was for my father, and at that time I didn’t get the same sense of professionalism or sympathy. Nathan was willing to accept our suggestions, and also to “take the lead” in showing us the next step and what was expected, even to putting details of the funeral into my computer!

Martie Dorland

You did a wonderful job from start to finish. I can’t think of anything you need to improve on. Great job! Helping us to wade through the government forms was great! Saved us a lot of anxiety. We will definitely recommend your funeral home. Wonderful service with kind and caring staff. 

Carol Ryan

I don’t see how you can improve exceptional services. Whatever was necessary on your part to provide was done without question. You eliminated much paperwork and guided us through a painful process with empathy and professionalism. 

Donna Jones-Baldwin

I feel the professional quality of services my family received was second to none.

Kim Moylan

Nathan, I can’t tell you how much your care and support has meant to my whole family. You obviously take great pride in the service you provide. I can’t think of anything you could have done to help us more. You, your mom and Terri-Ann make an excellent team. I had so many compliments on the set up and the service. I sing your praises to everyone who asks. Keep up the fantastic work.

Ruth Stephen and family

It was exceptional how Nathan opened our hearts and minds to give info; then transferred into so many ‘on target’ ways. Also very comforting and understanding to us all. Many comments, impressed, liked all that was done, respectful family-like atmosphere at all times. Especially kind to young members of family as well. Above and totally beyond expectation – Thanks.

Mary Harrison

What one thing could we have done better to improve your experience?
Nothing, we were very happy with services and support provided to our family. Well done. We really appreciated everything that was done for us and how well it was done.

Don MacDermid

Overall I am extremely pleased. Your kind, caring and professional services went above what I expected. All our needs were met satisfactorily and more.

Barbara Aikens

Everything was done so professionally that I don’t think anything else could have been done.

Joy Pitman

You go above and beyond with your services and expertise and compassion.

Judy Charlton

You have succeeded in taking the sadness out of a funeral and made it into a celebration of life and remembrance, which we truly appreciated... Continue doing what you did for us. It was exceptional in every regard.

Marlowe Emke

Our law office often has had many estates involving families who have obtained funeral services from Nathan. He is regarded by my staff and myself as outstanding for his professional, pleasant, and efficient manner. We would highly recommend Rhody Family Funeral Home to anyone.

Ross McLean, McLean Lawyers

Dear Nathan, I cannot say thank you enough for everything you and the rest of the Rhody Family Funeral Home team done for our family with Mom's passing. From the moment you got to Mom's house your professionalism was second to none. You listened and read between the lines yet missed nothing, every little touch was simply perfect, you left nothing undone, your care and compassion to ensure our family made Mom proud one more time, and for that I am forever grateful. You took a very difficult time for us and made it as simple and stress free for us as humanly possible. Nathan you should be very proud of yourself and the rest of your team. You have definitely set the bar very high for any other funeral home in the province to follow. Again thank you

Sincerely, Deb and Doug

Nathan: Thank you so very much for all that you have done for my Mom and my family. Your friendship during this difficult time was truly heartfelt. You made us feel welcome and like a part of your family. The whole time we spoke both at the nursing home and then at your place was a very peaceful experience. Not once were we made to feel like we did not belong there. Your attention to detail in everything that all of us said shows in the story of my Dad’s life and the video. Where there were concerns, you set them all at ease. I so appreciate all that you did for my Mom in helping her take care of cancellations and notifications for my Dad. It set her mind at ease knowing that you were taking care of all of this for her. It set me at ease knowing that she would not have to deal with the frustrations that sometimes come in taking care of these things. You and your family have gone above and beyond in all that you have done for us and I am truly thankful. The warmth and caring went home with us that day. We knew that the right choice had been made in allowing you to take care of my Dad. Again, thank you.


Your services are respectful, accomodating and very professional. An excellent job done. Thank you.

Darren Goodayle

Our aunt & uncle were buried from a different funeral home and we noticed a huge difference in the funeral home services provided. Our mom and dad looked so natural (thank you!) while our aunt and uncle did not. Thank you Nathan, we can't begin to tell you how much we appreciate you and your staff this year!

Ann Legge, Patricia Tibbo & Jane Lembke

All the worlds a stage and all the men and women merely players." Rhody Family Funeral Home takes this and runs with it in an intricate and tasteful manner. The beautiful funeral home sets the stage to reflect the deceased's individual personality. Nathan's artistic ability is only surpassed by his compassion, sincerity and understanding. He goes above and beyond the required duties. His staff is second to none. Darlene Rhody soft spoken and sympathetic and Morris Emke gentlemanly and obliging. Pastor Terri-Ann is like no other with her comforting words of wisdom and encouragement and so compassionate. Her service was nothing short of beautiful. A very heartfelt thank you to Nathan and his staff for making an unpleasant experience bearable. And hats off to Rhody Family funeral home for sending dad -Ross Hammond off in the fashion he deserved. From my mom and my siblings our sincerest gratitude.

Nancy Nickel

Personnel, facilities, advise & support all exceeded our expectations - it helped to communicate details by email. In particular, both Nathan and Terri-Ann did an excellent job! I was surpised at the after service documentation - all details well organized.

Larry Bell

Nathan and staff were kind and helpful throughout the process. They really went above and beyond to make the experience as positive as possible.

Amy Stephen

Everything was great - many great comments made about the story alone on Pearl's life and we sent copies to people who could not attend - a very nice addition.

Family of Pearl Stephen

Our experience was amazing under the circumstances. Your services were perfect. You went above and beyond our expectations. You are very caring, compassionate and professional in your approach. You create a very therapeutic environment.

Elmer Ward

"Dear Nathan, your many caring and creative touches from the notice to the burial in the days following Catharine's (McKeeman) passing meant so much to all of us. You honoured her life in so many meaningful ways. Your compassion and celebration of her life will always be remembered by all those Catharine held dear."

Ian Campbell, Catharine's Brother

“Nathan, you did an absolutely amazing job. People give us compliments about everything from the life story to the beautiful, elaborate displays at the visitation. I tell everyone it was you. All the surprises - the cookies, the recipe cards, the signing picture - all amazing!”

Kim and Alan Grant

“Staff were professional and friendly.”

“Exceptional service.”

Nathan, thank you for everything. You made things easy for us, as we felt like we were working on Dad’s arrangements with family. We gave Dad a great send off and thank you and your staff for being a part of it.”

Deborah Hart

“Letters cancelling Gov’t services was a great help and was very much appreciated.”

William & Loraine Patterson

Rebecca Becker

"I don't think there is anything more you or your staff could do."
