Two of her sons, John and David, predeceased her. Esther was also the Grandmother of Jennifer, Kate, Ryan, Alisha (Donnie), Kristi, Brittany, Ashley, and Carole-Anne and the Great- grandmother of Mia. She'll be sadly missed by her large extended family scattered from coast to coast. Special thanks goes out to the kind and caring staff at Hamilton and Brantford General Hospitals, Doctors Stahlbrand and Madison, cousins Marilyn Dargie, Linda Cameron and Mary Lou Stoyanowsky, and especially niece Kim Baker and nephew Cameron MacLean. At Esther's request a private family funeral has taken place. Arrangements were entrusted to the BECKETT-GLAVES FAMILY FUNERAL CENTRE, 88 Brant Avenue, Brantford, Ontario.

Melvin was employed at National Sea Products early in his married life when he was involved in a horrific accident that injured his back and left him in a body cast for eight months. After a long recovery he returned to work, where he was a construction/labourer by trade. Melvin was employed by Atomic Energy where he worked at the Heavy Water Plant in Glace Bay. He continued in construction where he was employed by the Lingan Power Plant, Wreck Cove Power Plant, construction of the City Hospital Nurses' Residence. He spent a short time on the draggers alongside his oldest son, Jerry (Gerald). He loved to peddle fish and was most likely to be accompanied by one of four sons, and/or his son-in-law. Melvin was a strong man who made it his mission to provide a loving, stable life forhis wife and children. He was more concerned over the big things in life and didn't sweat the small stuff. Melvin was the son of the late William 'Bill' and Jean (Drover) Baggs.

Bagnell Philip Bagnell CBP 5/3/2012
Philip Edwin Bagnell, beloved and devoted husband of Isabel (Townsend) and loving father of Philip Clyde (Heather) and Isobel May (Charles) MacLennan passed away peacefully at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital on April 28, 2012. He was 92 and enjoyed a remarkably full and healthy life. The son of William Fulse and Ethel May (Bragg) Bagnell of North Sydney, he attended Sydney Mines High School where he was a strong student and excellent hockey player. On graduation from high school he joined the Canadian Army to serve in the Second World War and was honourably discharged a sergeant in the signal corps at war’s end. His interest in telegraphy continued through his hobby as a ham operator and he sent code with a strong and distinctive “fist” throughout his life. An excellent athlete, he was a member of the Canadian Army Goose Bay championship hockey team of 1944 - 1945. After the war he took a position in Halifax as an agent with London Life Insurance Company, serving families in the hydrostone and north end of Halifax. A strong churchman, he was Sunday school superintendent at Edgewood United Church and was a member of the small post-war congregation that built the present day Edgewood United Church. He was a member of the volleyball league in Halifax, playing with St. John’s during this time. In the mid-fifties, he accepted a transfer as Regional Manager of the London Life office in Moncton, New Brunswick. In Moncton, his civic commitment followed the interests of his children – he served on the church board for the Central United Church Scout Troop and as president of the Moncton High School Parent and Teacher Association. He returned to Halifax as regional manager in the mid- sixties and remained there until accepting the position as district manager for the Cape Breton London Life Office in Sydney – a position his father and brother Rollie held before him. He retired from London Life in the early eighties and for the past 30 years he and Isabel have enjoyed full and rewarding lives together with family and friends. Married 71 years, it is not possible for those who knew them to not think of one without the other, and usually hand-in-hand. Until well into their eighties, they drove to Florida each winter and then enjoyed summers in their beloved and familiar haunts in Louisbourg, Kennington Cove, Gabarus, and around Cape Breton. He was an active member of the Louisbourg Masonic Lodge and of First United Church in Sydney. His love of hockey never waned and he was a season ticket holder with the Screaming Eagles. In addition to his loving wife Isabel, son Philip and daughter Isobel, he is survived by his much loved grandchildren Alexa (Patrick Keefe) Bagnell, Jeffrey (Nancy) MacLennan, Scott (Suzie) Bagnell, Sheridan (Greg) Bailly, Christina (Jon Beardsley) MacLennan, Kurt (Susan) MacLennan, and Regan Bagnell and great grandchildren Connor, Ian and Grant (Alexa); Jordan, Zac and Carter (Jeff); Mac and Annika (Scott); Sawyer, Olin and Thatcher (Sheridan); Isobel and William (Christina); and Emily, Matthew and Olivia (Kurt).

Bagnell William Bagnell CBP 4/10/2012
William Fultz Bagnell of Halifax, N.S., passed away peacefully on April 5, 2012, at the Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Centre.Born on Jan. 1, 1926, in North Sydney, Fultz was the son of the late Fultz Bagnell and Ethel Marie Bragg. Fultz was an independent, intelligent man with a love of books, music, food, world news, travel and long conversations with his family. The record of the longest phone call is of much debate within the family but is clocked at close to three hours. Knowing his family was connected with each other was important to him and many conversations began with “What’s all the news?” or “How’s the family?” During his working life, he worked for the RCMP in Montreal, CN Marine in North Sydney, Citadel Inn, CP Hotels and Resorts and Canada Post in Halifax. His travels included Europe and Russia and the memories of these trips gave him pleasure over and over and he continued to dream about yet another great trip. He is predeceased by his parents, sisters, Dinah and Beulah and brothers, Rollie and Graham. He is survived by his wife, Eva Bagnell, Halifax; children, Kurt (Heather Imrie), Banff, Catherine (Barry Styles), Halifax, and John (Emily Chen), Ottawa; grandchildren, Breagh, Greer and Ryan; sister, Elsa Boon, Barrie; and brothers, Philip, North Sydney and Freeman, Stanhope; as well as several nieces and nephews.

Balah David Lloyd Balah CBP 12/20/2011
“They that love beyond the world, cannot be separated. Death cannot kill what never dies. Nor can spirits ever be divided, that love and live in the same divine principle; the root and record of their friendship. Death is but crossing the world, as friends do the seas; they live in one another still.” — William Penn. It is with sadness that we announce the passing of David Lloyd Balah, beloved father, grandfather and great-grandfather and uncle on Sunday, Dec. 18, 2011, at the Northside General Hospital. Lloyd joins his beloved wife of 58 years, Wilma, in heaven’s embrace. Born and raised in North Sydney, Lloyd was the son of the late David and Marguerite (Hatcher) Balah. In his youth, Lloyd spent many happy years fishing with his father along the banks of the Margaree River. Lloyd studied for a short time at St. Mary’s Boys School in Halifax, before returning to North Sydney and running a business with his father. In later years, Lloyd settled into a happy family life with his wife Wilma and their nine children. He was also instrumental in the lives of many Northside youth who visited the arcade he owned and operated. Lloyd was also a devout member of St. Joseph Church, North Sydney. He was also an original founding member of the Father William Kiely Council of the Knights of Columbus in North Sydney and served for 58 years. Lloyd was the last surviving member of his immediate family. Lloyd was a wonderful father, whose happiest moments were spent surrounded by family, in cheerful chaos. His profound love of music, which he studied as a youth with his Uncle Moses Balah, was always present in his home. This appreciation of the arts is a legacy he has left to four generations of family. A creative man, Lloyd found great joy in writing, carrying a notebook for when inspiration struck. He was especially fulfilled by the preparation of his book “Stories Of A River.” The book was truly a labour of love, completed with his editor and partner, Wilma at his side. Lloyd enjoyed quiet time with Wilma, going for walks with his faithful companion Mr. Buttons and spending time with his devoted son Lloydie. He enjoyed frequent visits from family and friends. His devotion and care for his wife Wilma served as a testament to the depth of their love. Lloyd is survived by his nine children, daughters, Theresa (Alan) MacLeod, Sydney, Cathy (Daniel Fraser), Alder Point, Rosanne (Mike) Speckert, Helen (Joe) Felstein, both of Newmarket, Ont., Noreen (Steven Stewart), Alymer, Que.; sons, David (Nancy), Sydney Mines, Martin (Kathy), St. Catharines, Gerard (Patricia), Newmarket and Lloyd, at home.

Passed on: April 29th, 2013
David Louis Baldwin, 83, Blenheim, Ont., passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Monday, April 29, 2013, at the Northside General Hospital, located in North Sydney, Cape Breton, N.S.
David moved to Cape Breton in 2010 to be closer to his children and grandchildren. He attended St. Joseph Church, North Sydney.
He was a loving husband and friend to Margaret Baldwin and could always make her laugh. David was extremely proud of his family, Dean Baldwin and his wife Joanne, David Jr. Baldwin, Dawn Levangie and her husband Mike. He idolized his grandchildren, Spencer and Samantha Baldwin, Taylor Baldwin and Kaitlyn and Bailey Levangie.
Predeceased by his parents, Louis Dana and Kathleen Mary Baldwin and sister and brother-in-law, Kitty and Bob Burk.
David lived most of his life in Blenheim where he touched many lives. He was passionate about coaching young people in baseball and hockey. He established the Blenheim Golden Blades in 1965. Days before his passing he was reminiscing about the hockey days, saying, “those were good times.” That passion later turned towards sailing, where he won many races on Lake Erie in Canada and the U.S. He was an honorary member of Lakeside, Edgewater and Cleveland yachting clubs in Ohio. He initiated the St. Anne’s Regatta in Erieau to encourage keel sailboats from Ohio to come to Erieau. Later he incorporated the “Powder Puff” race to encourage women to race keel sailboats.
David was a loving husband, father and friend to all. We will miss his smile and laughter; but remember a man who made a difference.
At his request, cremation has taken place.
On June 15, 2013, David will cross the finish line one last time, where we will have a celebration of life on his son Dean's sailboat, the Morgan "D", for a final farewell.
“The history of our grandpa is remembered in our laughter. It is in us that his life and memory continues, and it is in us that his history becomes future.”

This dream was soon to be realized when he worked for CHER in Sydney and CIGO in Port Hawkesbury. Glen also put his charismatic nature to use by volunteering his time to many organizations. He had been very involved with Alcoholics Anonymous and felt very blessed to have been given 34 years of sobriety.

Emma Florence (Skinner) Bartlett
Born In: Miller's Passage Fortune Bay
Born: July 27th, 1925
Passed in: Louisbourg
Passed on: November 5th, 2013
It is with great sadness that we regret to announce the passing of a loving and devoted mother, grandmother, aunt and friend, Emma 'Emmie' Florence (Skinner) Bartlett.
Mom passed away at her home in Louisbourg on Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2013, with her son Clayton by her side.
Emmie was the daughter of the late Daniel and Bertha (Abbott) Skinner.
She was born on July 27, 1925, in Miller’s Passage, Fortune Bay, Newfoundland, and lived there until 1957 when she, her husband Murdock and children Clayton and Rita moved to North Sydney and then to Louisbourg where she and Murdock lived the remainder of their lives. Although she was very proud to be a resident of Louisbourg, she remained a “loyal Newfoundlander”.
Emmie leaves behind her son Clayton and daughter-in-law Linda of Mira. She also leaves behind her granddaughter Krista of Calgary and her grandson Morgan (Alana) and special great-granddaughter Myla of Mira — they were her pride and joy and she loved them all dearly. She is also survived by her sister-in-law Myrtle Skinner of Halifax and many nieces and nephews.
Mom was the last surviving member of her immediate family and, besides her parents, she was predeceased by the "love of her life" Murdock (1991), her husband of 45 years, her daughter, Rita Mildred (1960) and a son in infancy. She was also predeceased by her brothers, Charles James (Mary), William (Alice) and Clayton Skinner.
Emmie was a dedicated stay-at-home wife and mother who loved her family above all else and who was happiest when cooking and baking for them. She was an excellent cook and baker and in her middle years went to work at the Fortress View Restaurant in Louisbourg — a job she loved and where she made many wonderful friends. She liked nothing better than playing cards and bingo and participating in all the social events at the Louisbourg Senior’s Club where she was a member. Before her illness prevented her from doing so, she could always be found with knitting needles in her hands. She loved Mira and looked forward to her many good card games and dinners “out-on-the Mira”.
Emmie was a dedicated member of St. Bartholomew’s Anglican Church in Louisbourg and was very involved in the ACW of which she was a life member. She cherished her daily phone chats and long distance phone calls with her family and friends. In her earlier years she loved nothing better than attending Krista’s and Morgan’s ball games and speedskating events and was their greatest fan.
The family would like to thank Dr. Wawrzyszyn and Patsy at the Louisbourg Medical Centre, the VON, the City Homemakers, the Palliative Care Team with a special thank you to Beth Latham. A huge thank you is also extended to her caregivers for all their love and support which enabled Emmie to remain in her home.
Visitation for Emmie will take place at Chant’s Funeral Home, 564 Alexandra St., Sydney, on Thursday, Nov. 7 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Visitation will also take place on Friday, Nov. 8 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. at St. Bartholomew’s Church in Louisbourg with a Celebration of Life to follow at 2 p.m. with Rev. Laura McCue and Rev. Lydia MacKinnon officiating. Interment to follow in the parish cemetery.
Donations in Emmie’s memory may be made to the local Branch of the (VON) Victorian Order of Nurses, Palliative Care or a charity of choice.

And so He gave you rest.

He only takes the best.

Tracy faced many challenges in her unique life and each one she met with a courage that can only be understood by the angels of God. Her tiniest gains were a huge triumph that changed the way family, friends, health-care providers and teachers viewed life.
Tracy also taught little children to love unconditionally and that everyone is equal in God’s eyes. She helped others slow down, appreciate the small things, and blessed us with a witness to the power of courage, strength, patience and, most of all, love. Tracy helped all those who were blessed to know her, discover something good in themselves.
Her parents, Lorraine and the late Jim Bartlett; brother, James, along with her special angels Lloyd and Patsy Mansfield have not only sustained a fragile life, but have watched it blossom under their tender, loving care.

When I come to the end of the road,
And the sun is set for me. I want no
rites in a gloom-filled room,
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little, but not too long,
And not with your head bowed low,
Remember the love that once we shared.
Miss me, but let me go.
For this is a journey we all must make,
And each must go alone,
It’s all part of the Master’s plan.
A step on the road to home.
So when you are lonely and sick of heart,
Go to the friends we know,
and bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
Miss me, but let me Go!

Batten Mary Gertrude 'Gert' Batten CBP 11/18/2013
Mary Gertrude 'Gert' Batten
Born In: New Aberdeen
Born: November 18th, 1913
Passed on: November 16th, 2013
Mary Gertrude 'Gert' Batten was the second of 15 children born to Isaac and Catherine (Haley) Batten.
She passed peacefully away in the presence of family on Saturday evening on the eve of her hundredth birthday.
Save for the three years spent in military service during the Second World War, Gert lived in the family home on 5th Street, New Aberdeen, until she became a resident at the Veterans' Wing of Taigh Na Mara four years ago.
Gert was an expert seamstress. During the Second World War, Gert was in the Air Force and put her sewing skills to use making parachutes. When she returned to Glace Bay she studied to become a seamstress and made her living sewing.
A woman of faith, Gert was a lifelong member of St. John's Parish and a former member of the Ladies Guild. Her handiwork and baking were regular features at their fall fairs.
Gert was a loving daughter who took care of her parents at home until their deaths. She was like a second mother to her younger siblings. Her many nieces and nephews fondly remember that you never visited Number 2 without being offered a jam-jam or molasses cookie or a slice of homemade bread. Christmas meant a fruit cake from Aunt Gert.
Although legally blind, Gert continued to bake as long as she lived on 5th Street.
After her sight failed, Gert continued her love of reading by listening to her stories on books supplied by the CNIB. At home the radio was always on and Gert kept herself well informed on current events. She had a wonderful memory and until her final illness in the past few weeks was actively engaged in conversation.
Gert is survived by her brothers, Jim, Taigh Na Mara, Tom, Smith Falls, Ont., Naish and his wife Elvira, Glace Bay, and Philip and his wife Ruth, Grand Cache, Alberta. She is survived by sisters, Emmeline Burns, Halifax, Kathleen (Kay) Yorke, Toronto, Sister Cecilia Catherine (Mary Frances), Halifax, and Anne Marie and her husband, Jim McDonald, Grand Cache.
Besides her parents, Gert was predeceased by her brothers, Jack, Joe, Ike, Allie and David, in infancy, and by her sister Jenny (Steve) MacCormick.
Visitation for Gert Batten will be held 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013, in V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 16 Reserve St., Glace Bay. A funeral mass will be celebrated 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2013, at St. Anne’s Church, Glace Bay, with Fr. Leo Boone officiating. Interment will be held in the parish cemetery. A luncheon will follow in the church foyer.
The family would like to thank the staff of Taigh Na Mara who have shown their sister and aunt great care and kindness during her stay with them.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Gert’s memory may be made to Taigh Na Mara Nursing Home or a charity of your choice.

She also taught shorthand and typing at night school in Florence, Bras d’Or and Sydney Mines for many years — years she cherished.
She enjoyed life to the fullest and always said if she didn’t have quality of life she didn’t want to go on — it was her wish to stop all treatment and just be kept comfortable until the end.
Mum was actively involved in the community and thoroughly enjoyed being a member of the Sydney Mines Seniors & Pensioners, the Miners Memorial Manor Auxillary, Breton Branch 8 Legion. As well as her zest for life in general, included fishing, playing the VLTs, riding the harley, eating out, traveling, politics and generally having a good time, she was always game for anything.
She was predeceased by her husband, Cyril; brothers, baby Robert and Jimmy; sisters, Myrtle and Charlotte ‘Lottie’ O’Brien.
She leaves behind three daughters, Cheryl (Aaron Langille), Truro, Val, Georges River with whom she recently decided to reside, and Arlene, Calgary; granddaughter, Kim Langille; her best friend, Dorie Latwaitis; as well many nieces, nephews, cousins and a large circle of close friends.
Cremation has taken place.
A gathering of her friends will take place at the J.M. Jobes Funeral Home, Sydney Mines Thursday, June 25, 2009, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A funeral mass to celebrate Ella’s life will be held Friday June 26, at 10 a.m. in Immaculate Conception Church, Sydney Mines, with Fr.

Beaton Margaret ‘Eileen’ Beaton CBP 8/30/2011
Margaret ‘Eileen’ Beaton, 92, of Halifax, formerly of Oromocto, N.B., passed away peacefully at Arbourstone Enhanced Care on Thursday Aug. 25, 2011. Born in Port Hawkesbury on Cape Breton Island, Eileen was the daughter of the late Alexander and Mary ‘Lillian’ (MacDonald) Beaton. Eileen was a graduate of the Halifax Infirmary School of Nursing class of 1941. During the war years she was a nurse on the Foreign Merchant Marine’s Ward. Later she was a public health nurse in the Halifax area, prior to joining the Royal Canadian Medical Corps in 1956. Eileen’s passion was nursing and she was grateful for all the opportunities the army offered her; the training for excellence, the team work approach based on strong leadership, getting the job done right with compassion and often humour, comradery and professionalism of the forces. She thrived in this environment. Eileen travelled all over Europe and Canada and rose to the rank of captain. She became the senior nurse (the Matron) of the Gagetown Base Hospital and later the assistant director of nursing at the Oromocto Public Hospital. Between 1962 and 1963 Eileen’s older sister, Rita MacLean and her husband died leaving one child and three teenagers. Eileen acquired an instant family. She assumed complete responsibility of “the kids,” Rita, Mona, Dave and Mike. So there we were, Eileen and the four MacLeans on Scouller Street, Oromocto. No challenge was too daunting for Nursing Sister Beaton. They say as God closes a door, He opens a window, so Eileen’s private life and the sports car went out the door, the “bigger” second hand Hilman to carry “the kids” to church and hockey practice appeared in Eileen’s driveway on Scouller Street. Though not with out its challenges (and Eileen always said she loved a challenge) she often said these were the best years of her life. She had a profession, a full time family and the best neighbours in the world, and yes she always looked after her neighbours and those dear people watched out for Eileen too. After Eileen retired from the forces in 1979 she was appointed the Head Nurse of Women’s Medical Surgery at the O.P.H. She continued making life long friends at the hospital. What a wonderful group of friends she found there. The “Kids” were gone, the cats were replaced by the firmly entrenched Bassets and Eileen was on the road for reunions, dog shows, card games, and senior bus trips, she was never home. Eileen and her sisters always made a point of getting together. Laney reunions, trips to North Sydney, or the “shack” in Neil’s Harbour and the condo in Halifax, the Beaton sisters never lost touch. Eileen was often on the phone to her brother Ernie and his family in Coquiltlam, BC. The statement “the family is forever” was not just a sweet expression on a greeting card, it is part of the Beaton sisters legacy. Eileen moved to Halifax in 1998. The years caught up with her and her health began to fail. The golden years were not so golden she would sometimes say. But as Eileen’s world became smaller the bonds of family and friendships grew stronger. Through it all Eileen never gave up her quiet dignity. God took her away quietly, she was not alone, she was not afraid. Eileen was predeceased by her sisters, Rita (Frank) MacLean, of Sydney, N.S., Frances (Paul) Laney of North Sydney, N.S. and her brother, J.
