"The Measure Of a Man"
Not - How did he die? But - How did he live?
Not - What did he gain? But - What did he give?
These are the things that measure the worth
Of a man as a man, regardless of birth.
Not - What was his station? But - had he a heart?
And - How did he play his God-given part?
Was he ever ready with a word of good cheer?
To bring back a smile, to banish a tear?
Not - What was his church? Not - What was his creed?
But - Had he befriended those really in need?
Not - What did the sketch in the newspaper say?
But - How many were sorry when he passed away?
These are the things that measure the worth
Of a man as a man, regardless of birth.

Mom was born in Reserve Mines, and was the daughter of the late Walter and Veronica (Fahey) Finlayson.
She married our Dad, Michael, in 1960 and together they had 50 wonderful years of marriage before Dad passed away just two years ago. They lived in Boston shortly after marrying but moved back to Cape Breton in the late 60s to raise our family. They complemented each other well, socialized often and loved to go dancing almost as much as we enjoyed watching them together. Mom often said Dad was the wind beneath her wings that allowed her to fulfill her career and community aspirations.
Mom’s working life spanned more than 50 years during which time she held a number of increasingly senior administrative roles in the private and public sector before retiring just five years ago. For most people the countdown to retirement begins in your 50s — maybe 60s but Mom loved her work too much to quit. Undaunted by challenge, Mom spent the bulk of her career working for the federal government to boost employment in Cape Breton. She worked tirelessly for decades creating programs to train and retrain people, to assist individuals find meaningful work and with organizations to create opportunities for Cape Bretoners. She made a difference for so many people. For Mom, it wasn’t just a job — she loved to see people reach their potential and gave so many the confidence and support they needed at difficult times in their lives. We are and always will be incredibly proud of Mom and all that she accomplished in her professional career devoting her life to helping others.
She gave willingly and often to her community over the years volunteering for countless organizations including the Cape Breton Regional Municipality Task Force, the Association for Safer Cape Breton Communities, the Advisory Committee on Queen's Counsel Appointments, the IWK Hospital, Junior Achievement and was the founder of the Arlene MacNeil Trust Fund Foundation.
For her efforts she received many honours: First Lady of the Year, Beta Sigma Phi International, 1995; Commemorative Medal for the 125th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation; the Merit Award for Public Service Entrepreneurship; Award for Outstanding Commitment to Community Service from the Nova Scotia Director General and was one of the top 10 finalists for the Canadian Women’s Mentor Awards. In 1999, she was recognized in the Who’s Who of Canadian Women publication.
Despite a busy career and volunteer life, Mom had lots of hobbies and a wonderful circle of friends. She was the founder and an active member of the Cape Breton Chapter of the Red Hat Society, enjoyed a game of tarabish a couple of times a week at one of the local gathering spots, was a bit of a political junkie and in recent years took up gardening. She loved to entertain friends at home and turned her garage into a make shift hall complete with enough tables and chairs to host card tournaments and parties. She loved to shop and found the search for a bargain exhilarating — a passion she passed along to us.
She was well-known for her cooking and baking. Mom was always making something for someone — our family, the local clergy, a neighbour, a sick friend, or her fellow card players. She was one of these people who could take one gigantic bowl and then all of a sudden on the counter would appear four pies, three pans of squares and a batch of tea biscuits, all before most of us were out of bed. And she made the best pancakes hands down.
She was the most wonderful mother. She was always there when we needed advice or support dropping everything on a dime when someone called. She taught us to be selfless and to see the bigger picture. She was the ultimate optimist who believed attitude was everything. We often said that Mom was the champion of the underdog taking the side of the person most needing her support. She was strong-willed and opinionated (but in a nice way) and you never wondered where she stood on any issue. She could stretch a dollar and ran our home as efficiently as she managed her career. She regularly visited our relatives in Boston, loved cars (especially her current convertible), the Casino, travelling, American Idol and dark rum and cherished her dog Bella, her constant companion at home. She recently opened a part of her home to three international students who became instant friends to Mom.
She relished her role as Gramma and never hesitated to overstep boundaries and dish out advice. That’s why we loved her. Like she did with her own children, she challenged her grandchildren to work hard and give their best effort. She took personal pride in their academic and athletic accomplishments and always took their side in any debate with one of us. It was a rite of passage in our family that each of her granddaughters learned to make their first pie under her watchful eye.
Left to grieve are her five children, Charlene MacKinnon (Kevin), Halifax, Natalie Paris (James), Sydney, Deanna Gallaway (Dave), Halifax, Allison Donovan (Blair), Halifax, and Michael Almond (Krista) Halifax; eight grandchildren, Julia, Sara, Clara, Jarrod, Lauren, Taylor, Bradley and Julianne and one great-grandchild, Lucas. She is also survived by a sister, Nan Murphy (Arnold); a brother, Melvin Finlayson (Pearl); several nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.
Besides her parents and Dad, Mom was predeceased by her brother, Charlie Finlayson and grandson, Matthew Fitzgerald.
Visitation for Mom will be at T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel on Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. with a funeral mass Thursday, Nov. 14, 2013, at 11 a.m. at Our Lady of Fatima Parish, Sydney River.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation.
We extend our sincerest thanks to Dr. Paul Murphy, Mom’s family doctor for many years, and to the doctors and nurses at the QE II Hospital in Halifax who provided exceptional care to Mom during her most recent stay.

For Dad
To be heard, without saying a word
To be hugged when we’re feeling blue,
To be understood, when we’re confused
So rare was a Dad like you.

Your loving smile, and gentle laugh,
Made all the difference in our day.
Your endless wisdom and timeless advice
Always helped us find our way.

In you there was no Equal,
You were in a class all your own
And because of all the Love you gave us,
We’ll never be alone.

Sadly missed and never forgotten

— 93, passed away on January 12, 2010, the QEII, Health Sciences Centre, Hospital. Born in Sydney, Cape Breton, he was the son of the late Katherine May (Macdonald) and the late A. P. Anderson.

He was also predeceased by his only brother, Stewart M. Anderson. He is also survived by his sister-in-law, Joyce E. Anderson and her children, Stewart Anderson and Ruth Megannety. Don was educated in the Halifax school system and Dalhousie University. While at Dalhousie, Don received Varsity Letters for basketball, rugby and badminton and he also played inter-faculty hockey. Two days after finishing his law exams in May 1941, he went on active service as an officer in Royal Canadian Navy Volunteer Reserve. He served on the HMCS "Rimouski", a corvett engaged in Atlantic convoy escort work between St. John's and Londonderry. He also served on HMCS "Columbia" as Convoy Escort Group Anti-Submarine Officer on the Triangle Run between Halifax, St. John's, and Staten Island, NY.

Next he went afloat as Executive Officer on the HMCS "Loch Achanalt", a Loch Class frigate operating in the Western Approaches as a member of a group striking force. HMCS "Annan" and HMCS "Loch Achanalt" destroyed the German U-Boat 1006 on October 16, 1944 after a gun battle in the North Atlantic in an area between the Faeroe Islands and the Norwegian Coast.

She was admitted to the Bar in 1988. Raylene had three great loves in life; her family, her friends and music. Starting at a very young age, she shared her musical talents singing at countless community events and church services in Mabou and throughout Cape Breton. She pursued her love and passion for music as a full time singer, songwriter and entertainer in The Rankin Family musical group established with four of her siblings in 1989. In 1997, she recorded a collection of Christmas songs with her sisters, Heather and Cookie and, for many years, toured the country celebrating the Christmas season with stories and song. In addition, she had been involved in numerous musical endeavors including two solo albums, Rankin Family reunion tours and collaborations with musicians, Susan Crowe and Cindy Church. Among the successes, gifts and achievements in her life, Raylene felt they all paled in comparison to the gift of her son, "her little man" Alexander. In 1999, she took leave from the Rankin Family to enjoy precious time raising her son. She loved to receive family and friends at home where she relished in preparing numerous meals and cups of tea accompanied by good cheer and conversation. She gave generously of her time and talents and was always ready to lend her voice in support of family, friends and community. Raylene maintained deep connections with her hometown of Mabou and often visited the Red Shoe Pub in Mabou which she co-owned and operated with her sisters.

Jayabarathan, Dr. Dorianne Rheaume, Dr. Stephen Beed and Dr. Peter MacDougall, for their exceptional care and compassion. Colin and Alexander are especially grateful to Cathie Ross, Dr. Barbara Parish, and Dr. Simone Abbass, for their friendship, love and compassion shown to Raylene throughout the years. Raylene's family and friends are grateful for the legacy of love and music she has left. She was particularly fond of the song "Rise Again", often identified as her signature song, written by fellow Cape Breton native, Leon Dubinsky. She felt privileged to be the voice of this song "about hope, looking to the future and looking to our children."
"That as sure as the sunrise
As sure as the sea
As sure as the wind in the trees_
We rise again in the faces of our children
We rise again in the voices of our song_
We rise again in the waves out on the ocean
And then we rise again" (Rise Again)"

Arkell Marilyn Christine (Brown) Arkell, R.N. CBP 9/29/2012
Marilyn (Brown) Arkell, R.N.

Born In: Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia, Canada
Born: June 28th, 1934

Passed in: Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Passed on: September 20th, 2012

Marilyn Christine (Brown) Arkell, R.N. passed away suddenly at her home in Victoria on Sept. 20, 2012 at the age of 78.
She will be greatly missed by her family, husband, Tom; son Brian (Anne); daughter, Megan (Owen) and grandchildren, Corrie, Kirsten
(Jim), Clare, Elinor and Rowan, as well as by many other relatives and friends. Nurse, mother, and behind-the-scenes community activist, Marilyn was
born on June 28, 1934, in Sydney Mines, the eldest child of Ralph Brown, a coal-miner and Christine Alderson, a coal-miner's daughter.
At the age of 17, shortly after entering nurse's training, Marilyn was faced with the unexpected death of her father. She continued her
training, sent money home, and assisted her mother in the raising of her three younger siblings, Bruce, Lois and Ann. She graduated with
her R.N. in Glace Bay in 1954, and immediately began her nursing career in Halifax.
Also in 1954, on a blind date, she met Lieutenant Thomas Arkell, a Royal Canadian Naval Officer originally from Cheltenham, England.
They were married in the chapel at Naden Barracks, Victoria on Nov. 1, 1958. Marilyn battled and defeated cancer in her late twenties,
and then gave up her nursing career to concentrate on raising the children that she and Tom adopted, Brian, in 1964 and Megan, in 1966.
After a period of frequent moves, brought about by Tom's military career, the family permanently settled in Victoria in 1970.
Shortly after, Tom and Marilyn became active members of Centennial United Church, and served in a variety of roles including teaching
Sunday school. Along with Tom, Marilyn also began volunteering at her children's school, Burnside Elementary in the early 1970s, and
touched the lives of many children for over 30 years until the school's closing in 2006. In honour of their unique achievement, the
Victoria Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils instituted the annual Arkell Award for Community Involvement in Schools, and Marilyn
and Tom were the inaugural recipients in 2006. After achieving success as a client at Weight Watchers, Marilyn began
working for the organization in the late 1970s, and remained there for over a decade, helping many people to reach their goals. Marilyn
also assisted her husband in founding the Burnside Gorge Community Association, of which she was an active member until her death.
But it was as a wife, mother and grandmother that Marilyn left her most lasting mark. Marilyn loved her family with a passion, and her
constant fussing, worrying and gregarious caring were visible reminders of this love. Her training as a nurse and bristly
assertiveness made her an excellent caregiver and a tireless medical advocate for her husband Tom, who faced a number of health challenges
over the past 20 years. She leaves behind a strong, united and loving family; this is her ultimate legacy.
A memorial service will be held in Victoria at Centennial United Church (612 David Street, at Gorge Road East) on Saturday, Oct. 6,
2012 at 2 p.m., with a reception to follow in the church hall. Preceding the service, there will be a ringing of the bells in the
tower of Christ Church Cathedral (Quadra Street at Rockland Avenue) in Marilyn's honour from 1-1:30 pm. All are welcome.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Burnside Gorge Community Association, Centennial United Church, and the Christ
Church Cathedral Bell Fund.

It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Monie Arsenault on May 9, 2009, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, surrounded by her loving family and friends. Born in Bras d’Or, she was the daughter of the late George and Catherine (Marsh) Swann. A cherished mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, sister-in-law and friend, she was an inspiration to all who met her. She was a humble, religious lady with a heart of gold, whose whole life centered around her children. She truly defined ‘mother’. Not one to be socially active outside her home, there was nothing she enjoyed more than having a conversation and a cup of tea with the many friends and family who visited her, especially in the latter years when her mobility became more difficult. She never ceased to amaze people with her impeccable memory and stories of years past. She always said “I love people”, and it showed, with every kind word or gesture done. An avid Blue Jays fan, she was never too tired to watch a game or recall the stats. She is survived by her three children, Art (Gwen), Big Bras d’Or, Cassie (Norman) Brochu, Millville, and Oscar (Debbie), Lower Sackville; 14 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren; sisters, Bridget (Reginald) Thurbide, Mill Creek, and Lois Currie, Bras d’Or; her sisters-in-law, Julia Swann, Florence and Marie Dandy, Alder Point; daughters-in-law, Linda, Halifax, and Glenda, Sydney Mines; several nieces and nephews.

Passed away on: 25/06/2010

I chose today, a beautiful, sunny day in June, with a Full Moon on the rise to take my stroll to Heaven.
I've lived to lose a good husband and father, but gained a best friend. Raised eight sons and one daughter to the best of my ability and had to endure saying goodbye to one son, before his time. I have grandchildren, and great grandchildren; there was always a young one to spoil.
My love for animals kept me busy feeding any stray that walked across my doorstep.
As per my request, there will be no visitation; cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
I am going home now; the home where my Heart is.
I am survived by seven sons, Ken (Dorothy), Ron (Dolores), Louis, Jim (Sylvia), John (Shirley), Kevin (Brenda), Glen; and one daughter, Kim (Edward) Ivany.

AuCoin Judith Ann (Pelrine) AuCoin Cape Breton Post 6/16/2009
June 13, 2009, Judy Aucoin went to sleep for the last time in her daughter’s arms. Those close to her knew her as a warm, strong, caring, admirable and tenacious woman who loved a cup of tea and a good game of cards with a little gossip on the side. In her nine years battling cancer she rarely let anyone know she was fighting it. She made sure that cancer was going to get the worst of her, not the best. Judy worked for the Nova Scotia government for 30 years, first at the Point Edward Hospital and then in the Department of Municipal Affairs before retiring in 1994. She then went on to volunteer with various organizations including Fancie’s Gift Shop in Cape Breton Regional Hospital and Revenue Canada’s Income Tax Program to name a few. Judy was predeceased by her husband, James Anthony AuCoin, her parents, Mary Lillian (Marr) and Joseph Augustus Pelrine. She is survived by daughter, Jennifer in Halifax; brother, Kenneth (Madeline) in Lower Sackville, and many dear friends in Sydney. There will be no visitation.

Léo Henry Aucoin May 28, 1923-May 12, 2008 - Léo Henry Aucoin passed away suddenly at his home, La Residence Acadienne in Cheticamp. He was the son of the late Pat (a Joe) and Minnie Aucoin of Saint-Joseph-du-Moine. Léo leaves behind his wife, Judy, of which they recently celebrated 60 years of marriage; daughter, Linda (Ken) Gillis, Antigonish; sons, Lionel (Laurette) Aucoin, Port Hawkesbury, and Rhéal (Francine) Aucoin, Sydney; grandchildren, Jeff (Bridget), Marc (Stephanie), Kevin, Richard (Stella), Cheryl (Micheal), Shawn, Kimberly and Michelle; great-grandchildren, Ryan, Adam, Brittany, Jacob, Ben and Heidi; brothers and sisters, Philias (Laura) Aucoin, Montreal, Elizabeth Poirier and Lucy May Aucoin, both of Waltham, Hermine Chiasson, Oakville, Gerard (Therese) Aucoin, Therese Wierbiski, Célina Aucoin, Stella (Theobert) Chiasson and Catherine Aucoin, all of Saint-Joseph-du-Moine. He was predeceased by his son, Pierre Arthur and brother, Freddie. Léo was known for his fine talent as a singer of traditional Acadian songs and his unique interpretation A Cappella (no accompaniment of musical instruments). He sang since he was a very young boy and started collecting these songs as far back as 1951. Well known, especially to the Acadian community, he was asked to perform in various places; Expo '86 in Vancouver, the Helen Crieghton Folk Festival in Dartmouth (1992), Grand Pré during the 250th anniversary of the Expulsion of the Acadians, St. Peter's, Sydney, local festivals, Boite a Chansons and the list goes on. Léo's collection of over 500 Acadian songs was very dear to him and he was quite impressed and proud when he was able to record approximately 200 of these songs with Radio CKJM. These recordings and the words of these precious songs are in the archives of Universite Sainte-Anne in Church Point and at Les Trois Pignons. His songs are also recorded on other CDs for all to enjoy. Léo left a legacy of old Acadian material that would have been lost. Now, they will love on for future generations to come. In earlier years, Léo and Judy enjoyed small game hunting together and often returned with their fair share of rabbits and partridges. Many winter nights, there were entertained by watching his beloved Montreal Canadiens. Léo, at the age of 84, was still enjoying a very active life, his daily walks to the post office, playing cards, going to the senior dances, spending time with his family and of course singing, always the singing. Visitation will be held Thursday, May 15 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the Cheticamp Funeral Home. The funeral will be held Friday, May 16 at 10 a.m. at St. Joseph Church, Saint-Jospeh-du-Moine, Fr.

She battled heart and Parkinson’s disease but still enjoyed life to the fullest. She will be remembered for her remarkable sense of humour... as we say in French, she was “ricasseuse”. She loved fiddle music and would often sing along to old Acadian songs during family gatherings. She was always happy to have company over for a cup of tea and sweets or a game of cards. She was a very courageous and religious woman and did not let life’s challenges diminish her faith. She will be sadly missed by many.

And La Société Saint-Pierre. Maman was also a wonderful cook, enjoyed her weekly Lexicon puzzle and her time spent at her hooking frame. There will never be another “suête” without us thinking of how much she disliked them.Her love of fiddle music was never as evident as when she was able to listen to her grandchildren Leanne and Brent play at the local Doryman. To see the tradition continue in the family was a source of great joy and pride to her.
