RIP Mom Chaplin

This is a short message to say to those of you who knew Mom Chaplin, of the Chaplin Family in London, Ontario, who were involved in Roller Skating for many years in that city, has passed away.

Mrs. Chaplin passed away in London, Ontario, last Sunday morning. She was cremated and there will be a Memorial Service this Saturday

Westview Funeral Chapel

London Ontario

Visitation at 10am

The Chaplin family promoted Roller Skating from the early sixties out of the London arena- the London Skateland on Dundas Street east of Clarke Road and another roller rink located on First Street. Doug continues the family tradition by running the roller skating sessions and lessons at the North London Optimists Community Centre.

Sincere sympathy is extended to her son Doug Chaplin, relatives, and friends.
