Irma Elizabeth (Manley) Collette

Born In: Whitney Pier, Nova Scotia, Canada
Born: July 28th, 1932

Passed on: November 16th, 2012

Irma Elizabeth Collette, nee Manley, 80, of Sydney, died peacefully on Nov. 16, 2012, at Cape Breton Regional Hospital . Irma was born on July 28, 1932, at home on 63 Frederick St., Whitney Pier, to her parents, Barbara and Alex Manley . Her siblings were the late Margaret (Edward) Del Vecchio, the late Alex (Mary) Manley, the late Ann (Matt) McMullin, the late Stephen (Elsie) Manley, the late Louis (Marie) Manley, Rose (Mike) DiPenta, the late Joey (Lorraine) Manley, the late Helen (Edward) Medora and the late Francis Manley . As the baby of the family, Irma received both the love and never-ending teasing of her elder siblings. Irma lived at home and cared for her parents, allowing both to die in the home that they, as immigrants, worked so hard to establish. Thanks to Irma, 63 Frederick St. was home to all of the Manley family, including her many nieces and nephews, as well as anyone who came to the door needing assistance . Irma was united in matrimony to John on Nov. 12, 1956, and earnestly kept her vow to love through good times and bad until John's death parted them on March 2, 2002. John was the love of her life, and together they suffered the loss of three children before the birth of their eldest surviving child, Colin Collette, who currently resides in Chicago, Ill., with his life partner, William Nifong. Almost exactly two years after Colin's birth, they were blessed with their baby girl, Kimberly Ann, who lived with Irma and cared for her. Kimberly resides in Sydney with her longtime companion, David Deveaux of Cheticamp. Irma joins now in heaven her only granddaughter, Baby Elizabeth. We rejoice that in death she may now embrace the little angel she never had the opportunity to hold in life . Throughout her life, Irma was the consummate mom, caring for Colin and Kimberly, along with her own parents. From time to time, she did work outside of the home. At an early age, she was an Elizabeth Arden girl; she also sold Rainbow vacuum cleaners and was a Polaroid girl, demonstrating Polaroid cameras when they were first introduced. Irma also was a longtime volunteer at Holy Redeemer parish, where she served as a sacristan for over 30 years, preparing and cleaning the altar cloths and decorating the church for major feast days and celebrations. Irma was the past president of Holy Redeemer Catholic Women's League several times and an associate of the Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame . For the past 20 years, Irma would spend part of the year in Chicago with her son and became a regular and active member of Holy Family Catholic community. There she was a member of a small Christian community and a regular participant in the Marion Ministry Rosary Group. Irma worked also as a sacristan, preparing thousands of candles to be lit at the Easter Vigil. She was the light of Christ to her family and to the people of Holy Family . In addition to her children, their partners, and countless friends, Irma leaves to grieve her only surviving sister, Rose of Windsor, Ont., and many much-loved nieces and nephews. Irma also was a special 'Nanny' to great-niece Philippa and great-nephew Remington, and her two favourite puppies Happy of Chicago and Little Bear of Sydney. Welcoming Irma into the feast of heaven are her late nephew Billy and her very special niece, Cheryl . Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated in Holy Redeemer at Whitney Pier on Wednesday, Nov. 21 at 11 a.m. The family will receive visitors from 10 to 11 a.m .

Born: August 4th, 1917

Passed on: October 19th, 2013
Pauline (Higgs) Collier, 96, formerly of Sydney N.S., died Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013, at the St. Catharines General Hospital, Ont.
Born in Lovejoy, Montana, to farming parents, Pauline felt a deep love towards animals and would readily defend the notion that pigs were filthy creatures.
Her family would leave the West for the East. Sydney, N.S. would become Pauline’s new home. And there she would find her true love, James T. Collier (Jim). The two married and would remain together until Jim’s death in 1987.
The couple were blessed with two children, Carole Ann (Cook) and Alan Blair. Both Carole and Alan would predecease Pauline.
These losses deeply affected Pauline but she was able to find comfort in her grandchildren, Jennifer Cook, Jonathan Cook and his wife Denielle Cuoco, as well as her great-grandchildren, Lauren and Owen Kamphuys, Elizabeth and James Cook. Being surrounded by such youth rejuvenated Nana and brought much joy to her life. We will miss her dearly.
A private memorial will be held at a later date with interment to follow at the John Pringle Cemetery, Blackett’s Lake, Sydney, N.S.

It is with profound sadness and broken hearts that the family announces the peaceful passing of our dearest wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and sister, Patricia Jane (MacNeil) Collins. Patsy died on Thursday, July 15, 2010 after a short but courageous battle with breast cancer, in her 75th year.
Born Dec. 23, 1934 in North Sydney, she was the daughter of the late Charles and Eva (Roy) MacNeil.
Although she was a stay at home mom, her office was the kitchen table, where she worked alongside her husband Joe, running the family business, Pat J. & Sons Trucking, for over 30 years.
In the early years of their marriage, Dad's army career saw them living in many places; Marystown, Nfld., Oromocto and Gagetown, N.B. She set sail in Quebec and crossed the Atlantic ocean with three little boys in tow, to meet up with dad in Germany; coming back with one more. They returned to Cape Breton in 1965, and brought eight more children into the fold in the next nine years.
An avid sports fan, she loved her Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Blue Jays. It was a dream come true to fly to Toronto to see her Jays playing baseball. She was a member of the Wednesday night ladies bowling league in North Sydney and Sydney Mines for over 40 years, serving as a committee member on several occasions. She volunteered with the Rotary Mile of Money, the Crippled Children's clinics, as well as a member of the North Sydney Kinettes for many years. She was a member of St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church, North Sydney.
Patsy enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles and playing cards, especially cribbage. Sunday was card night at Nanny's where she and her sisters and brothers-in-law enjoyed a game of Auction '120'. She was famous for her cooking, especially her homemade turkey soup, cabbage rolls and hamburger Saturdays 'Glory Days'.
Her greatest accomplishment was receiving her drivers license at the age of 52. Thanks Buck!
She is survived by her best friend and soul mate of 57 years, Floyd 'Joe'; and their 12 children, Glenn (Patricia), Blair, Joey (Joyce), Tanya, Bobby, Craig (Diane), Lee (Debbie), Dana (Tracey), Dawn (Bob), Trudy (Gerard), Duane, Todd (Shauna); she will be dearly missed by her 29 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren and one great great grandchild. She was also 'Ma' to so many more, as it was no surprise to find an extra pair of feet or two under the dinner table! She is also survived by her sisters, Mary Witherall, RoseAnn Gillis, Elaine Wall, Eva MacNeil, Lynn Pottie (Carl) and Evelyn MacNeil; brother Roy (Janet); sisters-in-law Marion Gouthro, Yvonne Collins, Mary Steele-Boston; brother-in-law Howie Collins, and many nieces and nephews.

The family would like to express heartfelt thanks to all the doctors and nurses and staff on the fourth floor, palliative care unit at the Northside General Hospital. Special thanks to Dr. Bernie MacIntosh, who mom adored dearly. Hugs and kisses to all her angels by her side during her illness.

There will be no visitation. Cremation has taken place and there will be a private family service at Forest Haven. Memorial to take place at a later date. Donations may be made in her memory to the Cape Breton Cancer Centre, Patient Comfort Fund, Cape Breton Regional Hospital. Online Condolences, foresthaven2005@gmail.com. “Life is what you celebrate.

Four Killed When Great Wireless Mast Crashed Down

Shocking Tragedy at Marconi Towers

Near Glace Bay - Fell 120 Feet - Three Instantly Killed

GLACE BAY, July 8 - Four men, Norman MacRURY, Hugh CONNINGTON, A. KELLY and M. POPE, were killed at noon yesterday at the Marconi Towers, near Glace Bay.

The men belonged to Louisbourg. They were erecting a steel mast and were in a cage 120 feet from the ground when the mast collasped. An official investigation to determine the cause of the collaspe of the tower will be conmended Monday afternoon at Glace Bay, by Coroner P.E. Ogilvie.

About the same hour Louisbourg will witness one of the saddest, the four coffins of the victims, scenes in her long history, when Norman MacRury, Hugh Connington, M. Pope and A. Kelly will be carried in a common funeral procession to their last resting place.

Up to the present time nothing official has been given the public as to the reason of the accident beyond the obvious information that the failure of an important part of the structural steel frame precipitated the catastrope.

The four men were structural steel workers, and specialists in the erection of wireless towers of the lattice type. They were engaged in extending an old mast to a height of 310 feet. They had reached a height of 180 feet at noon, Saturday, and were working at that level, when without warning, some of the structural steel at the ninety foot buckled and the upper half of the mast toppled over and fell to the ground, carrying the workmen down in a tangle of girders.

The tower did not break off completely, but buckled and fell over, its appearance after the accident being much the same, as that of a straw bent double. The lower half of the mast remained verticle, the upper half sloping at an angle down to the ground. When assistance arrived it was found that Connington, Kelly and Pope had been killed instantly, MacRury lived for about an hour after the accident. All four were badly crushed and mutilated by the steel. MacRury was the only married man of the four, all of whom belonged to Louisbourg. This is said to be the first accident of its kind in the history of the Marconi Co., in Canada. The four victims had been engaged in similiar work for years and were well known in wireless circles in Cape Breton for their skill in their different occupations. A special train on the Sydney and Louisbourg Railway carried the bodies to their home in Louisbourg.

It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we, the family of Susan Coombs, announce her sudden passing Friday, March 12, 2010, at home, with her loving husband by her side.
Born in Sydney, Susan was the daughter of the late Leonard and Jean (MacDonald) Clarke.
Susan is survived by Kenny, her beloved husband of 38 years; daughters, Allison (Al Black), Sydney, and Cindy (Allan) MacLennan, Porters Lake; son, Kenneth (Denise), Porters Lake; and brother, Joseph (Dorothy), Sydney. Nana will be dearly missed by her grandchildren, Dean Alexander Black, Jenna Elizabeth Black and Lilly Catherine MacLennan.
With her kind heart and generous spirit, Susan touched so many people throughout her life. She cherished her family above all else, and was a loyal friend and confidante. Susan was an active member of St. Alban’s Church and a tireless volunteer who served on countless committees and with numerous community groups. She was always ready to help those in need. Her passing is a tremendous loss, not only to her family, but also to the community and to everyone who knew her, especially Sharon Walsh and Danny Campbell, life-long friends.
Susan worked in health care as a licensed practical nurse before joining the Cape Breton Regional Municipality’s Recreation Department. She was employed with the department for many years, most recently with the East Division (New Waterford, Dominion and Area). She was a wonderful role model for youth and was highly respected by her peers.
Visitation will take place Tuesday, March 16 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at Sydney Memorial Chapel. A celebration of Susan’s life will be held Wednesday, March 17 at 11 a.m. at St. Alban’s Church, with Rev. Brenda Drake officiating. A reception will be held in the church hall following the funeral.

Words of comfort may be forwarded to the family at sydneymemorialchapel@ns.sympatico.ca.

James Ronald 'Ronnie' Corbett, 86 of Halifax, formerly of Port Hawkesbury, passed away on Sept. 26, 2010 at the Veterans' Memorial Hospital after a long illness.  Born in Havre Boucher, Antigonish Co. N.S., he was the son of the late Edward M. and Isabel (Gillis) Corbett. Although never a fisherman, his life revolved around ships and the sea. A Second  World War Naval Veteran of the Battle of the North Atlantic, he served briefly on HMCS Niobe and then more than three years on the Flower Class Corvette, HMCS Bittersweet. While on  HMCS Bittersweet, he made 18 round trips across the North Atlantic with the Convoys. He worked just after the war on the ferry (Scotia), which ran between the Mainland and Cape Breton.  With the opening of the Canso Causeway, he joined the Public Service of Canada at Canso Lock and was always proud to point out that it could handle much larger ships than the Seaway.  He served at the 'Causeway' for 44 years. Ronnie was honoured with a lifetime membership at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 43, Port Hawkesbury. His involvement with the legion  through the years was very important to him. His signature trait was the empathy he showed his comrades and to all who passed through his life...as he liked to say, a true small "L" liberal.Ronnie was first and foremost a loving family man and will be sorely missed by everyone. He was famous throughout his community for his whistling, singing (Yellow Bird), walking, good humour  and razor sharp Irish wit, which he loved to exercise at coffee club. He loved to stay in touch with people from all the neighbourhoods he lived in. Very well read, he loved to quote poetry from  his very early school days. He was a student of the political scene and human nature and always enjoyed a good political discussion, always ready with a comeback. A lifelong Montreal  Canadiens fan, he loved to torment anyone who wasn't.  He is survived by his loyal loving, supportive wife, soul mate and dance partner of 62 years, Agnes (Chisholm); sons, Patrick, Halifax and Roderick (Lynn), Edmonton; daughter, Claudine  Corbett (Jose) Lourenco, Edmonton; grandchildren, Keith (Shayleen) Sampson, Calgary, Jacquelyn (David) Cyr, Toronto, Melissa Corbett (Michael) Robinson, Spry Bay N.S., Jose Lourenco,  Toronto, James Lourenco, Toronto, Michaela (Adam) Wier, Halifax; great-grandchildren, Declan and Rylan Sampson, Calgary, Eric Robinson, Spry Bay and Ewan Cyr, Toronto.  He was predeceased by his firstborn daughter, Ronalda. As the last surviving member of his family, he was predeceased by brother, John and sisters, Emily Ryan, Hazel Power, Imelda  Fougere, Kaye Sparks, Ernesta Bezanson and two infant siblings.  Thanks are extended to all the nieces, nephews and friends who spent so much time with Ronnie during his illness. Thanks also go to the caring nurses and LPNs at V5 West Garrison, Camp  Hill Hospital who gave him so much comfort during this difficult time. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, 7-9 p.m. with a vigil service at 7 p.m. and a legion service 7:30 p.m. all in the Dennis Haverstock Funeral Home, Port Hawkesbury. Funeral mass will be  held in St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church on Thursday, 10 a.m. with Fr. Andrew Boyd officiating.

Bill was born in Florence, the son of Thomas and Nellie Cordy. He married the love of his like Ava Baxendale, and said on first sight "I'm going to marry her one day!" They went on to raise seven children.
Dad was a devoted father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother and friend. When he wasn't working as a coal-miner, Dad spent his leisure time in his earlier years playing hockey, baseball and refereeing. Fishing the lakes and streams of Cape Breton with his long time fishing buddies was his little piece of heaven here on Earth. The fishing stories will bring joy and laughter to his children and grandchildren for years to come.

Born on: 15/11/1915

Passed away in: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed away on: 16/06/2010

Passed away on June 16, 2010, in her 95th year, surrounded by the love of her family.
Born in Florence, N.S. on Nov. 15, 1915, only daughter to George and Ethel (Norse) Snow.
Predeceased by five brothers; and husbands, Michael Corkery and Fred Hull.
Survived by numerous family members and friends including daughters, Pam, Cathy, Ann Marie, Carol, Donna, Wendy and son, Patrick, as well as several Corkery, Hodgson and Hull grandchildren and great-grandchildren, all living in Halifax, Cape Breton or other regions of Canada.
'Kay' as most people called her, loved to work in her garden on Herring Cove Road, where every piece of arable land between the many rocks was planted with flowers of all sorts. In later years, when her knees would not allow her, she would spread a blanket near the garden and weed while lying on her belly. During the cold winter months her house became a nursery overflowing with vegetation.
Her love of travel was fulfilled in her early-married life with Michael as he was a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force and they were transferred around various parts of Canada. In her later life after Michael's death she partnered with Fred Hull and enjoyed adventure in Europe and exploring North America in their motor home.
Through her dedicated involvement with the Fairview Legion's ladies auxiliary, she blossomed socially, finding long lasting friendships and contributing to community service through the legion's many volunteer activities.
But Kay's ultimate expression of her love for life shone through when she danced. Whether at legion events or in her living room with her grandchildren, she could 'cut a rug' like no one else.
We will never be able to adequately express our gratitude to the wonderful staff of Citadel Court Unit at Parkstone Enhanced Care in Halifax, N.S. for their loving attentiveness and genuine friendship given to our beloved mother
Cremation will be followed by a private family memorial at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Kay's memory to the charity of your choice.
Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Dana L. Sweeney Funeral Home, Lunenburg.

It is with heavy hearts and fond memories we announce the passing of Ron on Tuesday, Dec. 24, 2013, at
the Glace Bay Health Care Corp. after four very courageous and difficult years of failing health including the
loss of personal mobility.
Ron was born in Amherst, Nova Scotia and was the son of the late Clarence and Anzelica Cormier.
Ron graduated from St. Charles School and Amherst Regional High School where he was a popular student
known to always pay attention in class but never took home a book and always had high marks. Ron’s
career took him into military service including graduation from the dental program at Dalhousie University.
Ron served in several places including Queen Charlotte Islands in British Columbia. Ron served patients in
Halifax, Cape Breton and Fisher Branch, Manitoba and taught at CBU Dental School.
Music always was a big part of Ron’s life. Singing and playing guitar and mandolin at home and at country
festivals were at the top of his list of fun things to do. Ron sang in the St. Charles Church choir and was a
member of the Church Scola quartet. The well-known music scene in Cape Breton was a treasure to Ron
and he enjoyed being a participant in several groups notably “The Peach Chords”.
Left to remember him and mourn his passing are his wife, Cynthia; son, Scott (Melissa); grandson, Hunter
and sisters, Louise Beal (Ralph), Marlene Cormier and fiancée (Paul); three nieces, Michelle, Susan and
Catherine who brought a twinkle to Ron’s eyes and many nephews, as well as his dear friends, Roy and
Shauna Peach.
Ron was predeceased by his former wife, Norma (MacAulay) parents, Clarence and Anzelica, his sister,
Yvonne and brothers, Reginald, Ervil, Raymond and William, as well as family, many close friends in various
provinces of Canada.
Ron’s family and friends would like to express their thanks to the staff at the Glace Bay Health Care Corp.,
Halifax Infirmary and the Nova Scotia Rehabilitation Center for the constant and excellent care he received.
At Ron’s request there will be no service. Cremation has taken place under the care and guidance of V.J.

James Peter Francis Cotter

Born in: Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada
Born on: 17/08/1948

Passed away in: Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed away on: 17/08/2010

It is with great sorrow and heavy hearts that we, the family of James Peter Francis Cotter, announce his tragic passing on Aug. 17, 2010 at the QE II Hospital, Halifax.
Born in Sydney, March 19, 1948, Peter grew up on Howe Street in Ashby and continued to live in his family home.
He was predeceased by his father, Aubrey Cotter, mother, Sarah (MacSween) Cotter, brother, Gerald Cotter, and Uncle Fr. Joe Cotter, among other aunts, uncles and cousins.
Peter is survived by his loving wife, Elaine (Rose) Cotter and faithful pussycats, Dolly-Wiggles and Daisy-Mae. He is also survived by a multitude of friends who knew they could always depend on Peter's loyalty and support in both good times and bad.
Peter started his media career at CGIO radio, Port Hawkesbury, in the late 1970s and went on to work in Charlottetown with CFCY radio. But the Island was always calling him home, so he returned to Cape Breton to work as a newsman with CJCB radio and later with CHER radio in Sydney. A career change to print media took place when Peter worked as an editor with the Cape Breton Post from the mid 1990s until 2008. Most recently, he enjoyed his employment with Sun Oracle in Sydney and took great pleasure informing Elaine daily about his interesting and collegial coworkers who made him feel very welcome, even if he was the old guy on the block.
Peter was an avid drummer and lover of music, from jazz and blues to rock and country. Over the years, he played with several bands of different genres. He and Elaine enjoyed hosting friends in their home; these visits always involved great food and drink and often a basement jam session with a host of talented musicians. For several years, Peter was a member of the Cape Breton Jazz Society. We know he will be jazzing it up in heaven with his musician friends who have passed before him.
Other interests included volunteering with Canadian Blood Services, being a former dedicated board member of a Nova Scotia mental health self-help organization, biking, swimming, walking, reading, history, current affairs and world and local issues.
In celebration of Peter's life, visitation will take place Friday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. in T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel, 755 George St., Sydney. Funeral mass will be held Saturday at 10 a.m. in St. Theresa's Church, Whitney Avenue, Sydney, with Fr. Jim Oliver officiating. Interment to follow in Resurrection Cemetery, Sydney Forks.
The family requests donations to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada and the performance of "random acts of kindness" in Peter's memory.
Peter, we love you. We miss you. Your drums will beat on in our hearts until we meet again.

Alf lived (Mississauga) and worked in the Toronto area for the rest of his life. In the late 1960s he married and had two boys. He spent the 1970s onward teaching classical and jazz piano as well as voice from his Mississauga studio. He continued to perform locally in television commercials and movies. He is survived by his sons, Brent and Shem Coward, as well as his granddaughter, Peyton; brothers, Donovan, Halifax, N.S., Reginald (Judy), Dartmouth, N.S., Rueben (Debbie), Lower Sackville N.S. and Cephas (Jennifer).

Cox Jack Cox Cape Breton Post 3/27/2014
Jack Cox
Born In: Netherlands
Born: April 5th, 1939
Passed in: Baddeck
Passed on: March 24th, 2014
With heavy hearts and a feeling of great loss, we the family of Jack Theodore Cox regret to announce his passing on March 24, 2014 in Baddeck, N.S. at the Victoria County Memorial Hospital.
Jack was born in Meijel, Netherlands on April 5, 1939, the son of the late William and Marie (Snickers) Cox.
He is survived by his wife, Mabel (MacDonald) Cox and sons, Sean (Janice), Baddeck and Cory (Natasha), Halifax.
Family was always important to Jack and the greatest of his treasures were his four grandchildren, Jake, Tara, Taylor and Alyssa. Time spent with Jake and Tara was especially precious; be it fishing mackeral at the wharf, playing checkers or going for ice-cream. Of course Jake and Opa had many debates over their favourite hockey teams while Tara would usually be on Opa side. Nothing would bring a smile to “Opa's” face more quickly than their visits, hearing Taylor tell him that she was “DUTCH” and getting her news on Alyssa.
Jack is also survived by his brothers, Leo (Annie) Cox, Mabou and Peter (Debbie) Cox, Alberta and sisters, Joanne (Frank) McKenna, Ontario, Mia (Bob) MacDonald, North Sydney, Lenie (Roger) MacAulay, Halifax, Gasha (Lee) Connolly, Truro, Mientje (George) Campbell, Sydney, Rietje Nicholson, Ontario and Melisha (Joey) Davis, Halifax.
Jack worked construction for many years until determination and hard work made his goal of building a business in Baddeck a reality. In 1980 he opened Coxweld Ltd. and he was a proud and passionate owner until 2008, when he retired due to poor health. His greatest pleasures at “The Shop” came when there was a project requiring design or modifications and of coarse finding innovating ways to make things work. Phrases like “that can be repaired” or “save that, we can use that for ........” was his creative thinking at work. He truly valued his relationships with “The Guys” that worked at the shop over the years and also his association with customers that supported his business.
Throughout his life, Jack has supported and been involved in many community organizations including Minor Hockey, Lions Club, Fire Dept., Curling Club and the Village Commission. He was a strong advocate for the growth and development of his community and liked to see improvements that helped create future opportunity. Jack's friends will remember him best for his wonderful sense of humour, love of fishing and curling, interest in world affairs and love of reading.
The family wants to extend heartfelt thanks to the doctors and all staff at the Victoria County Memorial Hospital. Words cannot express our appreciation for the care Jack has received over the years and in particular during his most recent visit. A special thanks to Dr. Carly Chow for his years of friendship and encouragement and support with his health issues.
Cremation has taken place and there will be no visitation. A service will be held in Baddeck at the MacAulay Conference Center on Saturday, March 29, 2014 at 2 p.m. A social gathering will follow the service at the Conference Centre until 6 p.m. A private family interment will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in memory of Jack may be made to either The Victoria County Memorial Hospital Foundation or The Victoria Highland Civic Centre.

Crabtree Grant H. Crabtree Cape Breton Post 10/20/2008
Grant H. Crabtree Margaree/Sydney, N.S. - Reluctantly, in his 96th year, smothered with love and enjoying it to the last possible second, our dearest Grant departed Tuesday evening, Oct.14, as the clouds flew past that perfect full moon, within view, and while a cu mor glas wandered beneath his windows. Ti amo per sempre. One of Canada's pioneer filmmakers, director and cinematographer. A mighty heart with a personality to match, he survived over four months in ICU, in a heroic struggle to overcome multiple hospital infections. He just didn't have time to be the good patient, too many things beckoned: eagles and hummingbirds, chanterelles, his asparagus and crabapple jelly, lunch at the Cedar House, entertaining His Girls. Grant grew up in Rockliffe, Ottawa, in a boisterous, creative family with both parents being artists, from a long line of artists. His mother, Ella Greenham studied at the Royal Academy with John Singer Sargent; her father was Queen Victoria's Chief of Security. Her family had three lines of descent from Edward I through the Howards, Dukes of Norfolk. In the Austro-Hungarian Empire they ran the port of Trieste, partied with the Bonapartes and had portraits painted. His father was art director at Notman's in Montreal and then ran his own engraving business in Ottawa. Grant's first film job was an offer from John Grierson of the NFB in 1939. His career spanned six decades and his films won many awards. He filmed in Quebec with Palardy and Barbeau and A.Y. Jackson; in Emily Carr country for Klee Wyck; on the Columbian icefield, in Resolute and Pond Inlet; in logging camps and national parks; with wheat scientists and marine biologists, Ukrainian farmers and new immigrants, the Saguenay, the South Saskatchewan; with Helen Creighton for Songs of Nova Scotia and on the last of the Grand Banks schooners. He made the classic "Loon's Necklace "and "Morning on the Lievre" and films for children and about children; Scandinavia, Britain, U.S.A. He went everywhere where there was a story to be told about the promise of a youthful Canada. His life was lived in the outdoors: a championship rower at the Edinburgh Canoe Club, hockey, building backyard rinks and log cabins and ski runs in the Gatineau; evenings of screening rushes and broomball and hilarity at Meech Lake; making maple syrup every spring until he was 94; countless canoe trips, hikes, picnics and stopping in for tea. He could identify every tree, wildflower and mushroom. But the love of his life was Cape Breton, begun in 1942, never diminished, especially for the Margaree and its people. He taught himself woodworking and learned to make ladderback chairs with his beloved Ernest Hart at the Northeast. He adored his neighbours, Albert Polycarp fiddling at sunset, Levi the superb artist in wood, John Joe the master sheep shearer and storyteller. He was always along the river and shore with camera, searching for the perfect light. Grant had a superb 'eye' and his passion was nature photography. He made many films here and never wanted to be very far from his home high above the River at East Margaree. In old age, when he couldn't fish and climb his hill and go to the beach, he looked after his roses, made marmalade and maple liqueur and pursued his Red Green projects, enchanting and inspiring his grandchildren with stories and full of humour. He has left a wonderful library of photos and donations to the National Archives. His last film, Song of Seasons (1977) is a love song to an innis aigh, his own piece of heaven. He was married for 50 years to his beautiful wife, Marjorie Morse (2000) of Toronto. He is survived by daughters, Lauren (Kenzie) MacNeil, Ankerville Street, Sydney (his other home), and by Carla Kalberlah, Halifax; grandchildren, Caitriana, Christie, Mary, Anna MacNeil and Kyle, Vanessa, Andrea and Ryan Tingley; great-grandchildren, Marcos Alej, Nicholas and Alexandra. The family will be at home at 839 East Margaree Rd., Saturday, Nov. 1, 12-6. All welcome. Donations appreciated to the Margaree Salmon Association: margareesalmon.ca.

He was also an active member of the Sydney Y's Men Club and the St. Andrew's United Church Men's Club...two organizations which filled his need for community service and who will miss Owen's dedicated contribution.
An active outdoors man and a jack of all trades and master of many, Owen was kept busy fundraising for the Y's Men, cooking for the church men's club and taking especially good care of wife Jennifer. He was a devoted father, proud grandfather and a genuine friend and caring neighbor.
