Auntie Ray

July 16/12.

The lovely, talented, charming, funny, frank, outrageous Auntie Ray has left the building.


At the age of 92, Ray Staples passed away this afternoon following a month-long stay at Toronto Western Hospital. I am heartbroken at the thought of a world without her in it, but happy she is out of pain and no longer suffering. She will forever be a part of my heart, mind and soul. More to write about her when I can.

Am so sorry for your loss, Elaine. I fondly remember Ray from her Cityline days, and that's how I found your blog. From her TV appearances, Ray seemed to be a wonderful, unique lady and your posts about her confirm that fact. My condolences to you and your family, and hoping you are able to find some of her strength for yourself in the coming days and weeks.
