Yesterday, April 5, 2011, we celebrated the life and death of Mae (Mary) Daigle, Glace Bay, who was born on Dec. 29, 1922.

Mae is also survived by her brother, Gerard (Frances), Amherst; numerous grandchildren; great-grandchildren; nieces and nephews. All Mae’s grandchildren were special, but she always had a special love and devotion for Roddie, who showed her love, conquers all. Mae was predeceased by her husband, Cliff, parents, Jim and Sis Haley, brothers, Eddie, Beau, Tom and a sister, Annie Irene in infancy. She was also predeceased by daughter-in-law, Kerry, grandson, Freddie and great-grandson, Stephen.

D'Amour Antonio D'Amour THE CHRONICLE-HERALD 12/6/2005 Carol MacLean Antonio D'Amour, or Tony as most simply called him, will now rest in peace. At the age of 72, after a tenacious and inspiring fight against cancer, Tony passed away Wednesday, December 7, 2005, at his home in Louisdale with Donna, his loving angel and soul mate, by his side. Tony was the 15th of 17 children, born on December 15, 1932, to the late Antoine D'Amour and Graziella Turbide. Besides his wife, Donna, Tony will sadly be missed by his three children, Louis (Ginette Roy), Bathurst, N.B.; Denis (Annette Melanson), Dieppe, N.B., and Colette (AndrZ Hamel), Ville Lemoyne, Que.; his two stepdaughters, Andrea, Halifax, and Hayley, Wolfville; his five grandchildren, Marie-HZlne D'Amour, Sarnia, Ont.; Luc, Pointe-^-la-Garde, Que.; Jean-Philippe, Bathurst, N.B.; Sophie and Devan, Dieppe, N.B., as well as by his sisters, Genevieve Schofield, Moncton, N.B.; ThZrse Schofield, Miramichi, N.B.; Antoinette Goudreau, Campbellton, N.B.; Sister Julie D'Amour F.M.A., Yarmouth, and by his brothers, Ludger and Julien, Moncton, N.B.; Maurice and Francois, Quebec City, Que., and Albert, Quyon, Que. As he so wished, there will be no wake. In a few weeks from now, Tony's ashes will be buried in his hometown of Baie-Ste-Anne, N.B., alongside his father, mother and brother, Rev. Cyrille, following a funeral mass in Sainte-Anne Church. Details of the funeral arrangements will be announced later. Seldom was a man ever so rightfully named, D'Amour, for Tony will always be remembered as a loving husband, who found in Donna the inspiration and the liberty to turn so many of his dreams into a beautiful reality of paintings, music and poetry. To Louis, Denis, Colette, Andrea and Hayley, Tony always was a teacher. He taught us how to understand events and people, he showed us when to be serious or irreverent and, as he had learned himself as a kid from his father, the true meaning of respect and integrity. It seems terribly unjust when the world loses such a good man. But, we all should be comforted in knowing that, as an eternal last gift, Tony co-wrote, edited and published a collection of short stories dating back to the time his grandfather, Louis-LZopold D'Amour, crossed the Atlantic on the Zenobi, from the small island of Noirmoutier, France, only to begin, in the Magdelen Islands, a new and exciting chapter of the D'Amour history: "The Runaway and other stories": www.zenobipublishing.ca

D'Aoust Joseph Emile Michel 'Mick' D'Aoust


Joseph Emile Michel 'Mick' D'Aoust 63, Louisbourg - It is with great sadness that we, the family, announce the sudden passing of 'Mick' on Sunday, Dec. 28, 2008, while in respite at Harbourstone Enhanced Care. Mick lived in Louisbourg and was cared for and loved by Peter and Michele (Peters) Somers, as well as their children, Mackenzie, Crewe and Eve. For many years, he attended Horizon Achievement Centre and was a joy to all. Mick was a gentle soul, who loved to smile and hug the people who were dear to him. He played guitar, stepdanced and loved to listen to music in his spare time. Everyone who has been touched by Mick's kind spirit has been changed in some way or another. Mick was born with Down's syndrome, but that was not the first thing people focused on when meeting him. It was his
infectious love of life and people. We will deeply miss Mick and know he is making others happy in heaven. Mick has a large extended family in all the 'Peters' relatives who accepted him into the family 15 years ago, unconditionally and with lots of love. We, his caregivers, would like to extend a special thank you to all our friends from Louisbourg, Sydney, P.E.I. and Ontario, who also have been very kind and accepting of Mick over the years. We do not have a "conventional" family setup and are very impressed with the caring, loving friends and neighbours we have encountered since moving to Louisbourg 10 years ago. In 1986, Mick was predeceased by his father, Conrad.
Surviving are his mother, Rolande, Laval, Que.; sister, Francine D'Aoust (Norm), Saskatoon, Sask.; brothers, Jean-Serge (Suzanne), Lorraine, Que., and Luc (Linda), Thurso, Que.; nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held at St. Bartholomew Church, Louisbourg, Wednesday, Jan. 7 at 2 p.m., with Rev. Fred Rhymes officiating, followed by a reception in the church hall. Interment will take place at a later date. Condolences may be sent to the family at sydneymemorialchapel@ns.sympatico.ca.

Daper Catherine (McInnes) Daper Crowsnest Pass Promoter 12/26/2006
Catherine Daper nee McInnes Catherine Draper passed away peacefully at the home of her daughter in Calgary on December 26, 2006. She was one of 11 children of William and Agnes McInnis, born in Inverness County, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia on December 28, 1915. The family moved west in 1916, eventually settling in Bellevue where William found work in the coal mines. Following high school Catherine studied beauty culture at the Beaton Academy in Calgary and then operated her own salon in Bellevue. She was an active participant in community and parish affairs while living first in Bellevue, then in Taber and, finally, in Pincher Creek. She held many executive positions in the CWL and was a lifelong, though far from compliant, member of the Liberal Party. She volunteered at Crestview Lodge, Pincher Creek, Extendicare and Meals on Wheels. Sports, in particular curling, softball and hockey, were an important part of her life. The music and the culture of Cape Breton was integral to her well-being. She came from a family of piano, fiddle and guitar players and passed this love of music on to her children and grandchildren. Although she left Cape Breton as a child, she always maintained contact with relatives and friends there. Her best holidays were the recent trips back to Nova Scotia with members of her family. It is difficult to include all of her attributes and to accurately describe what she meant to her family but perhaps most noteworthy was her continuing interest and pride in the accomplishments of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren whose careers, progress in school and achievements in sports she followed with a keen interest. Their efforts she always rewarded with great love and affection. Catherine will be lovingly remembered by Ralph, her devoted husband of 69 years and by her four children: Carol, Brian, Allan and Colin and by her 12 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren. A Celebration of her life was held at St. Michael's Church in Pincher Creek at 1:00 P.M. on Saturday, December 30, 2006 with Father Eric Nelson officiating. Interment in Fairview Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, memorial tributes may be sent in Catherine's memory to World Vision web site at World Vision.Ca or to #1-World Drive, Mississauga, Ontario, L5T2Y4. Eden’s Funeral Home Pincher Creek was in charge of arrangements. Posted on 2007-01-05 12/26/2006 born in Inverness County

Dauphinee Matilda Elizabeth Dauphinee CBP 1/24/2013
Matilda Elizabeth Dauphinee
Born: August 26th, 1925
Passed on: January 23rd, 2013
We are so deeply saddened to announce the passing of our precious Mumma, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend on Jan. 23, 2013.
Mum passed away peacefully at home where she wanted to be with eight of her daughters, our husbands, some of her many grandchildren and even a great-granddaughter as well as her daughter-in-law, Anna Marie, Paul’s wife.
In her early years, Mum began training to be a nurse when a friend, Anita Dauphinee-Mahe introduced her to the man she would spend the next 65 years of her life with, our Da, Omar. Mum was a proud member of the Canadian Air Force and served in Ottawa. She did much of the paperwork for Da in his role as service officer for the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 78. Mum devoted her life to her husband, and to raising her 15 children.
She was a gentle soul who always had such wise advice for each one of us. Even though she was raising a large young family, she took her own Mumma in to live with her and, as well, she helped look after her mother-in-law and later took her father-in-law to live with the family. Whatever she did, it was done with a quiet humbleness and would never expect or even want to receive praise. She tried to instill these qualities in each of her children.
Mum was one of the original members of the CWL in our area, first in St. Eugene’s parish and later moving to Immaculate Conception parish. Mum considered these ladies to be her best friends and missed their contact when she was no longer able to be active in this ministry. Mum was a woman of very strong faith, with a great devotion to Our Blessed Mother.
Tillie was the daughter of the late Michael D. Dunn and his wife Elizabeth McNeil Dunn.
She is survived by 14 of her 15 children, Corrine (Mike) Mischiek, Gerard (Jan), Lynn Dauphinee-Dodd, Nancy (Owen) Brown, Omar (Lois), Rosemary (Derrick) MacNamara, Diane (Frank Kilgar), Sharon (Doug) MacKenzie, Donna (Garry) Kenny, Marquette (Danise McNeil), Patricia (Ernie) Bishop, Carol, Allen and Kelly. She is also survived by her 32 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; her sisters Margaret Molesky, Patricia Ferguson; her brothers, Gerard, Francis, Tony and Joey; as well as many favoured nieces and nephews.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Omar in October 2011, and her precious son, Paul, Jan. 25, 2012. She was also predeceased by a little brother Michael.
Visitation will be held Thursday, Jan. 24 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at Curry’s Funeral Home, 775 Main St., Glace Bay. The funeral will be held Friday, Jan. 25 at 2 p.m. at Immaculate Conception with Fr. Danny Boudreau officiating.
In lieu flowers, donations may be made to your favorite charity. Light luncheon will follow in the parish hall. Interment will be in the parish cemetery.

Donna loved to cook and bake and all who entered her home were always welcomed with a cup of tea and a bite to eat.
She was an avid gardener and yard worker who took pride and dedication in all her tasks. Donna was a seamstress who sewed every stitch with perfection and she spent many hours toiling for loved ones. She loved a good laugh and was noted for her pranks. The greatest joy in Donna’s life was her family.
Besides her mother, Donna is survived by her husband, Daniel J. Davidson; two daughters, Paula (Michael DeCoste), London, Ont., Glenna (Wayne Locke), Glace Bay; one son, Michael (Marina) Davidson, St. Anthony, N.L.; three brothers, Warren (Linda), Dundas, Ont., Dr. Allan (Ann Marie) McIntyre, Halifax, Doug (Elsie), Glace Bay; and one sister, Marlene (Greg Gouthro), Sydney.

Donna was predeceased by her father, Michael ‘Red Mick’ McIntyre and a son, Jimmie ‘Bore’ Davidson.
Visitation will be held Wednesday, Sept. 16 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. in the V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 16 Reserve St., Glace Bay. The funeral mass officiated by Rev.

ROY CLARENCE DAVIDSON,
AUG 30,2012.
We knew little that morning
God was to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories,
your love is still our guide,
and though we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.
Forever loved and missed by wife Marie,
children, Joyce, Rhonda, Clinton.

Gordon joins his loving wife, Sarah (Long), married 61 years; daughter, Sandra; brothers, Wally, Eugene, Lawrence, and Hartland; sisters, Irene Leblanc, Margaret Nugent, and Melinda Ross.

He is also survived by his brothers, Joey, Bill, Les; sisters, Dorothy Serroule, Mary Juanita MacLean, and Betty Musgrave. Active in sports, Gordon first became known as a talented baseball player as part of the Sydney Mines Ramblers teams. In 1939 he was a pitcher for the junior team which won the Maritime championship and later coached and played on the intermediate team which played for the Provincial championship. What made his athletic pursuits more remarkable was the fact that he had lost a foot and part of his leg in a train accident at the age of 12, requiring him to use an artificial leg. His limitation didn't keep him from enjoying sports and playing and refereeing hockey. It also didn't keep him from joining the Merchant Marine in 1941 at the age of 21. A proud veteran of the Second World War, Gordon served in England, Wales and Africa. In 1958, Gordon moved to Mulgrave, accepting the position of Chief of Police and later as Works Superintendent. He also served as Mulgrave's Fire Chief, King Lion for the town's Lions Club, and he organized Little League Baseball and served on the board of directors for the town's first Credit Union. In 1969, Gordon and his family moved to Port Hawkesbury, where he served as the town's Works Superintendent, Deputy Sheriff for Inverness County, as a process server and as an appeal board chair for Social Services. Following his retirement in 1982, Gordon became even more involved in his community. Along with more than 36 years of service in the Lions Club and as a former King Lion, he was a dedicated member St. Joseph's Parish, where he was a Eucharistic Minister and president of St. Joseph's Parish Council. He was a lifetime member of The Knights of Columbus. He served on boards for the Strait Area Credit Union, Strait Area CO-OP, The Festival of the Strait, The Evergreen Club, was a devoted volunteer with the Port Hawkesbury Youth Band, Member of the Fire Department, Trainer of the Strait Pirates Junior B Hockey Club, and a proud member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch No. 43, where he served as poppy chairman. In 1996, he was honoured as Legionaire Of The Year for his contributions to the branch. His ability to listen and his wit and humour caused a chain reaction of love and fellowship that was a hallmark of Gordon's life. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends and community. Visitation will be 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. today, and 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Sunday with a Legion service at 7 p.m. and vigil service at 8:30 p.m., all in Dennis Haverstock Funeral Home, Port Hawkesbury.

God saw you getting tired,
And a cure was not to be,
So he put his arms around you and whispered, “Come to Me”,
With tearful eyes we watched you,
And saw you pass away,
And although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hardworking hands at rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.

Delaney John H. Delaney GLACE BAY COASTAL COURIER 12/18/1979 Carol MacLean John H. Delaney - Glace Bay. Union Leader Dies..... Funeral Mass for John H. Delaney, 71, one of Cape Breton's great union leaders, was held Sunday afternoon at two o'clock at St. Anne's Church. He resided at 340 King Edward Street. Mr. Delaney died suddenly late Wednesday afternoon in his hotel room in Halifax shortly before he was to return to Glace Bay. He had been in Halifax on business in his role as chairman of the mining sector of the Provincial Voluntary Economic Planning Commission. Mr. Delaney officially retired from the United Mine Workers of America in 1975 when he was director of International Affairs for the union. He served 25 years as International Board Member for District 26, a post he held until his retirement. Shortly after he retired the post of International Board Member, he began a campaign and created the term (Automatic Assumption). That developed into the Mineworkers Respiratory Disease Association and won the support of all mine locals in Cape Breton. Mr. Delaney was elected as chairman and held that post at the time of his death. The association became a strong lobby on behalf of mine workers suffering from lung diseases and it was only recently that Provincial Health Minister Dr. Gerald Sheehy announced that a special unit dealing with lung diseases would be established in Glace Bay. This was one of the major accomplishments gained by the association. Mr. Delaney was born in Glace Bay and educated here. His trade was that of a machinist and he began his career working at No. 2 Colliery in 1926. Later he moved to the Dominion Coal Companys Central Machine Shop on Union Street. He transferred to No. 11 for a short periond and then returned to the machine shop. He began attending meetings of Mechanical Local Union in 1933 and in 1934 attended a UMW District Convention. It was a steady rise up the ladder in the UMW after that. He held practically every office in Mechanic Local Union, and served as president for a term. In 1938 he was elected a district teller. In 1950 he sought the post of International Board Member and won elections continually thereafter. In 1970 he won the post by acclamation, In 1954 he polled the larest vote ever recorded in the history of District 26. Durning the period of 1970 to 1973 he was appointed president of District 18, a new district which served the miners of Western Canada. He was a member of the International Federation of Free Trade Unions with headquarters in Belgium and the Miners Foundation of Labor, headquarters in London, England. When he was appointed to the post of director of International Affairs for the UMW he became the first Canadian to hold the post. At the time of his retirement he urged members to guard and protect the UMW. Remember always, that a labor union is a working man' s best friend . In the 1950's he was named to a special committee by Premier Stanfield when Medicare was to be introduced to the province. It was Mr. Delaney who was called on by committee to address a meeting of the Nova Scotai Medical Association to outline the scheme. In 1969 he served on a Royal Commission on Salaries for members of the Provincial Legislature. He served on the Board of Governors of both St. Francis Xavier and Dalhousie Universities. He maintained his membership in the UMW of A, up to the time of his death. He was one of those who helped to revive the Victorian Order of Nurses in Glace Bay in the 1960's. He was a long time member of the St. Anne's Men's Choir, was active in golf and was a member of the Lingan Golf Club, a member of Bridge Clubs, a charter member of the Glace Bay Central Credit Union and served as president for a period. He was a member of the Board of Directors fo CJFX Radio, and was a member of the Halifax Club. Mr. Delaney was a member of St. Anne's Parish.

During his articles, she supported him, and kept on doing so for the next 51 years. She taught him how to drive and how to be social at parties, with varying degrees of success. Eric was a member of the Nova Scotia and Ontario Bars and practiced law with Rutledge MacKeigan in Halifax before moving to Toronto where he became Regional Counsel for CP Rail. In 1978 Eric left CP and his office on Front Street in Toronto for an office on Main Street in Wolfville, NS where he worked until retirement in 2000. He traded his Central "Y" membership in for a "gym pass" at Acadia where he played basketball with the noontime crowd until well into his 60's. A long time member of the Rotary Club of Wolfville, Eric was a Paul Harris Fellow and a past-president of the Club. He left the Club, and Wolfville, in 2005 to relocate with Pat to Halifax. Eric was known to his friends and family as the quintessential arbiter of fairness. He would enjoy knowing that his children think of him as the ultimate reasonable man - as he would have it, the man on the Clapham Omnibus. (Although if one ever attributed that to him, he might give a brief dissertation on the test as set out in Hall v. Brooklands Auto-Racing Club.) He was a keen swimmer and his favourite place to be was the "Bonavista Cottage", the family vacation home at Melmerby Beach. Exiting the sometimes frigid waters of the Northumberland Strait, he always had the same refrain, "the water is great!". At 80, he was still improving his tennis game, reading the latest magazines on how to hit the topspin backhand that continued to elude him. A lifetime non-drinker and non-smoker, he was the self-proclaimed coffee connoisseur of the family, and his ongoing quest to brew the perfect cup was well-known to all his friends. His interests were wide and varied and included his painting and photography alongside his computer and web surfing. As a fan of Charlie Rose, he was obviously a night owl . An aficionado of the movies, Bob Newhart, and the Marx Brothers, Eric was always ready to laugh, and to make others laugh too. He was an avid cruciverbalist and enjoyed working away at the New York Times Sunday crossword puzzle each week. A life long sports fan, he was delighted to watch his grandchildren play hockey, but didn't mind that the basketball games provided considerably warmer places to sit. Eric will be remembered for the funny stories about "back in the day" playing "foot-na- half " and chewing tar! With prosperity as a lawyer, he traded in the tar for the more acceptable black licorice. Eric has gone back to his personal "Mira" where he enjoyed his youthful summers in the 1930's and early 40's. Eric's legacy of fairness and laughter lives on in his children and grandchildren. He will be remembered at a memorial service at a later date. Eric would want all to remember the words of Groucho Marx, "time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana!"

Russell DeMont

Born in: Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, Canada
Born on: 29/08/1923

Passed away in: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed away on: 27/03/2010

Russell Clarence DeMont, 86, of Halifax passed away on Saturday, March 27, 2010 at Saint Vincent’s Guest House in Halifax.
Born in Glace Bay on Aug. 29, 1923, Russell was the first of three boys born to Clarence and Mabel (née MacKeigan) DeMont, both of Cape Breton heritage.
Russell is survived by his beloved wife of 55 years, Joan Belle (Briers) of Sydney Mines, N.S. and his brother, Earl, Glace Bay. He is also survived by his sons, John (Lisa) of Halifax and Philip (Heather) of Toronto and grandchildren, Belle, Sam, James and Alanna.
Russell was predecreased by his brother, Eric (Pat).
Russell grew up in Glace Bay where, with his beloved brothers, he could often be seen galloping through the streets like his hero Tom Mix and where he developed his affinity for Cape Breton nicknames and such obscure pastimes as “skooshing the clampers”.
After graduating from Glace Bay’s Central High School he attended Acadia University where he played rugby and basketball and competed in track and field. At Acadia Russell coached varsity basketball, wrote for the yearbook and also gained renown as a boater-and-cane song and dance man at university talent shows.
After Acadia he briefly moved to Toronto before heading to Halifax where he began his career in the investment industry.
Russell’s professional career took him to several firms in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and culminated as regional vice-president of RBC Securities and a director of the Investment Dealers Association of Canada.
He gave back to his community by coaching youth basketball, serving as an elder at St. Andrew’s United Church and president of the Ashburn Golf Club, acting as a long-time member of the Gyro Club of Halifax and serving on the Council for Canadian Unity.
After a lengthy hospitalization as a young man Russell afterwards seldom sat still. He played competitive volleyball in Toronto, jogged, lifted weights and even took up karate well into his 40s.
But golf was his game. He loved being the first to tee-off with his foursome at Ashburn and was forever trying new equipment, techniques and philosophies to “groove that swing.”
Russell was a man of broad talents. A teetotaler from a family of teetotalers he indulged his single vice--a love of sweets—by making a concoction called Cape Breton Sugar pie that was so sweet it could make a person’s teeth ache.
A life-long performer, Russell became a popular after-dinner speaker and an accomplished amateur magician. No grandchild’s birthday party was ever complete without a performance by the man known, appropriately enough, as “The Great Russell.”
He leaves, along with his golf clubs, magic wand and 1930 copy of Destry Rides Again, an unmatched legacy of kindness, wit, generosity and decency.
The family would like to thank the staff at Saint Vincent’s where Russell spent his last few years.
In lieu of flowers, the family would ask for donations to be made to St. Vincent’s Guest House, 2080 Windsor St. Halifax, B3K 5B2.
A service in memory of Russell’s life will be held at 11 a.m., April 17, 2010 at St. Andrew’s Church, 6036 Coburg Rd. Halifax.

Desveaux Therese (Aucoin) Desveaux CBP 8/23/2010
Therese (Aucoin) Desveaux
Born in: St. Joseph-du-Moine, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed away in: Cheticamp, Nova Scotia, Canada


Sometimes in life you see something that looks ordinary only to be surprised that it is anything but …
Therese (Aucoin) Desveaux, 83, from St. Peter's parish in Cheticamp was one such surprise - a truly extraordinary woman. And those of us who had the great fortune to cross her path are better people just to have known her. It sure didn't take long to be charmed by her quick, easy smile and that glint in her big blue eyes.
So what was so special about a busy working mother of eight children who taught school and later worked at the post office? The thing is Therese never 'seemed' too busy - if you walked into her big homey kitchen, she took the time to get to know you, in those small ways that others missed. She always saw the positive in you, like she saw in everything and everyone. When friends came from far and wide to the best Bed & Breakfast/Inn (though Therese never charged a dime), they found lemon squares and date squares on the counter, chocolate ice cream in the freezer, or whatever food you had expressed as a favourite. Mom never forgot. She was on top of everything.
Therese had deep values yet there was a catch. She had this simple acceptance and recognition of the real and profound dimensions of each human being, regardless of belief, origins, and even bad decisions. People always came first. Especially if they were children. She was Mom to eight and what a Mom she was!
Therese was the daughter of the late Paul Aucoin and Malthilde Aucoin of Saint-Joseph du Moine, and the wife of the late Jacques Laurent 'Jimmy' Desveaux.
She is survived by six daughters, Imelda (Hugh) Sullivan, Isabelle (Leo) Aucoin, Lucille (Dave) Lonny, Nora (Charles) MacDonnell, Bernice (Victor) Chiasson and Dina (Peter) Desveaux; and two sons, Harold (Mary) and Paul-Angus (Joan). Also surviving Therese are her 15 cherished grandchildren, Christopher, Rodney, Daniel, Kimberley, Christine, Victor, Darryl, Clinton, Renee, Nicole, Gisele, Juanita, Jamie Lynn, Gregory and Janelle; and 13 great-grandchildren. Therese is also survived by her sisters, Denise and Marguerite (Clifford) and a brother, Patrice, all in Sydney.
She's predeceased by her brothers, Willie, Francis, Freddie, Ned, Placide, Eddie and Moise and by one sister, Marie-Helene.
In the absence of her we are all diminished, but we take comfort in the many years of sharing our lives with such a generous, patient, gracious, and optimistic woman. Therese loved music (especially the fiddle) and threw fabulous kitchen parties. She had such a young spirit - loved and lived life to the fullest. We also take comfort in her being reunited with those she missed dearly, especially …
We imagine her late husband 'Jimmy' is overjoyed at being reunited with his beloved wife. They're probably looking forward to a long overdue game of crib and dancing to one of their favourite songs before they last separated:
"As long as old men sit and talk about the weather;
As long as old women sit and talk about old men,"
I'm (and we're) gonna love you forever, forever and ever, Amen.
Visitations will be at Cheticamp Funeral Home on Monday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. The funeral will be at Eglise St-Pierre at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 24, 2010. The service will be officiated by longtime family friend, Deacon Gerald Leblanc. Deacon Leblanc will also lead a special prayer at the Funeral Home at 8 p.m. Monday.
For donations in her memory, please consider the Foyer Pere Fiset, the Alzheimer's Society or UNICEF Canada.

Mary Deveaux, Montreal

Born in 22/07/1924

It is with great sadness that the family announce the passing of Mary Leona Deveaux on Saturday, Sept. 26, 2009, at the Neurological Hospital, Montreal.
Born on July 22, 1924, Mary was the beloved daughter of the late Howard and Anges (Dugas) Deveaux and was a member of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, Montreal.
Mary lived most of her life in Montreal, moving away at a very young age. During war time Mary worked in a war plant in Montreal, while five of her brothers were in the service. After the war, Mary became a master hairstylist and worked for Morgan’s in Montreal for many years until she retired.
Mary never forgot her ties to her family and to Cape Breton. She made frequent trips home to spend time with family. She enjoyed a good card game, a great cup of tea and sitting around the table catching up on the news. Mary loved to travel and enjoyed life to the fullest. She always looked after her health and tried to encourage the ones she loved to do the same. This choice certainly paid off for her because she always looked beautiful. She loved animals and had a soft spot for a stray. She would not allow them to be cold or hungry.
Mary will be forever missed by her loving, dear best friend, Michael Tomassino, Montreal, who was always there for her. She is also survived by her wonderful brother and sister-in-law, Henry and Evelyn Deveaux, Ontario, who is the last surviving member of her immediate family, her sisters-in-law, Mae Devoe, North Sydney, Agnes Deveaux, Big Bras d’Or, and Marguerite Deveaux, Alder Point; and many nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.
She was predeceased by her only sister and brother-in-law, Virginia and Kenneth Morrow and eight brothers and four sisters-in-law, William, Ivan (Mary Lou), Roy (Stella), Harold (Lollie), Simon (Rose), Clarence, James and Tremaine.
In keeping with the family’s wishes, there will be no visitation. Mass of Christian Burial will take place Saturday at 10:30 a.m. in St. Ann’s Church, Alder Point, with Fr. Peter McLeod officiating. Burial in St. Joseph’s Cemetery, Bras d’Or.
Arrangements are entrusted to Francis Funeral Home, Sydney Mines.
Donations in Mary’s memory may be made to a charity of choice.
Expressions of sympathy may be sent to d.francis@ns.sympatico.ca.
“There is a kindness in her voice
Her words are warm and wise
There is love in everything she does
Mary, you are with your family now
So rest peacefully, all are in God’s hands.”

Devoe Charlotte Devoe Sydney Post Record 6/4/1910 R. Fraser Mrs. Devoe, whose maiden name was Charlotte Richaur, was born at River Bourgeois 75 years ago. She came with her parents when quite young to Little Bras d'Or, where she resided ever since. About 57 years ago she married the late Capt. Peter Devoe, by whom she had a very large family of eleven sons and five daughters. The sons: William P, John F, Frederick & James W reside at Little Bras d'Or, Matthew in Boston, Richard, Charles A, Albert & Arthur H in Montana, Abraham, who died in Montana a few years ago; & Thomas H{ Brother Abdonis] who was a Christian Brother, died in Amawalk, N.

Conlin, Fridley, Montana & Emily who died an infant. She had 45 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren. Mrs. Devoe was a true type of French Acadian in every characteristic of that time, thrifty and industrious race. She was a model mother, giving the most scrupulous care and attention to the rearing of her children properly and one of the last advices she gave to her daughters-in-law was ' Be Good to the Children.' She was a great favorite of her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Even the little tots rushed to her arms to be caressed, which spoke louder than words. Personally she was quiet and retiring, exceedingly charitable, and her charity was always accompanied by the request that the party received it should not mention it to anyone. She was only a few days ill. Fortified by the last rites of the Roman Catholic Church she died a peaceful and happy death, surrounded by many of her relatives. Her funeral was a very large one to the church, where requiem high mass was celebrated after which interment took place at the Roman Catholic cemetery at Little Bras d'Or, Rev.

At the age of 97, our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother, Edith Mae Fraser passed away Monday, Jan. 14, 2013, at her place of residence, Miner’s Memorial Manor in Sydney Mines.
Born in Mill Creek, Aug. 1, 1915, she was the daughter of the late Walter and Mary (MacNeil) Jessome.
She was a dedicated member of St. Anne parish, Alder Point; a member of the St. Anne Society, and enjoyed time spent at the Bras d’Or Pensioners Club.
She was the last surviving member of her immediate family.
She may have been a small lady, but sure was mighty in heart and soul. She lived her life unselfishly, always ready and willing to help others. She was even known to lend a helping hand as a midwife, delivering not only her own six babies, but numerous others as well. She devoted her early years of life helping her husband, as he was paralyzed in a mining accident.
In her spare time she did factory work, and at the young age of 60, she decided to get her driver’s licence. The roads were never the same as she drove with her sun hat on, and the wind at her back. She had a great sense of humour, and enjoyed sharing it with others.
She leaves behind to mourn her children, daughter, Mary (Rod) MacInnis, New Minas, N.S.; sons, Ron, David (Joan) and Walter (Elaine); 18 grandchildren and numerous great and great-great-grandchildren.
Besides her parents, Edith was predeceased by her first husband, John Fraser, second husband, Harold Devoe, and sons, Bernard and Alexander.
A very special thank you to our family member and friend Millie for all the visits and time spent with her.
Thank you also to the nursing staff at the Miner’s Memorial Manor as she adored each and every one of you. She will always be your mascot.

Clarke immediately rushed the victim to Harbor View hospital where he died shortly after admittance. Dr W Lamond of Sydney Mines, who examined the victim, stated that he died from shock and injuries. It was also stated that Dickson was in poor health and was receiving treatment.

Soon after, they moved to Ontario for a few years before returning to Cape Breton to raise their family. Robert spent a good part of his career  working as a member of the Seafarers' International Union. This job took him to many parts of the world, including Canada, the United States, the Caribbean, and overseas.

Digou Raymond Frederick Digou Cape Breton Post 11/5/2010
It is with great sadness that we, the family announce the passing of our dear father, grandfather, brother and uncle, Ray Digou, 91, Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2010, surrounded by a loving and  devoted family. Born in Sydney, April 20, 1919, he was the son of the late John ‘Jack’ and Mabel (MacIntyre) Digou. He was raised in South Bar, where he spent most of his life. In his early years, he demonstrated a wanderlust which lead him to a variety of notable experiences. Raymond was a member of St. Alphonsus parish. In 1937, following a sudden windfall which lifted his ‘spirits’, Ray joined a few friends and embarked on an epic adventure. In a Ford Model A, they made a cross-Canada journey to British  Columbia, went down to California, dipped into Mexico, crossed to the U.S. east coast, then returned home to Nova Scotia. While recounting the story of this trip, Ray never failed to include  his belief that they drove the first Nova Scotian car across San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge. In November 1939, during the early days of the Second World War, Ray joined the merchant marines, crossing the Atlantic on the Greek-flagged SS Nicholas, working as a stoker, shovelling  coal in the engine room. During that voyage, he earned extra pay by slaughtering sheep kept on board for food. At one point, the ship was boarded by sailors from a German Navy submarine,  and he, with a few British nationals, had to hide below to avoid capture. This incident may have caused him to rethink his employment choice, because for a brief time he returned home before deciding to choose a vehicle which offered a bit more protection. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Navy, Sept. 17, 1940, and later that year, as a ‘man of means’ celebrated Christmas by marrying the love of his life, Mary MacMillan on Dec. 30. Together they would raise seven children. Ray served in the Navy throughout the Second World War, working below deck in various capacities. He served on various ships including HMCS Nootka, HMCS Fundy, HMCS Medicine  Hat and HMCS Regina. He participated in the Murmansk Run, one of the most dangerous supply routes of the war. In his later years, Ray proudly recounted his memories of serving on HMCS  Thorlock when, at war’s end, the German U-boat U-190 surrendered to this ship May 12, 1945, off the coast of Newfoundland. Shortly afterward, Ray was discharged on Aug. 17, 1945. For his wartime service, Ray was awarded the following: The 1939-45 Star, the Atlantic Star, the Africa Star with Bar, the Canadian Voluntary Service Medal, the War Medal 1939-45, North  Sea and Murmansk Russia Ribbon 1939-40. Following the war, Ray returned home to his family in South Bar, and became employed at the Sydney Steel Plant. In the late 1940s, he built the home which would later become a focal point  for his growing and extended family. At times, Ray experienced layoffs from ‘the plant’, which hindered his efforts to support a growing family. As a result, he spent some time working  elsewhere. In 1954, Ray decided to re-enlist, this time in the Royal Canadian Air Force. During this term of service, he worked as a stationary engineer and was posted to various locations such as Goose  Bay and Calgary (where one of his sons was born). From Calgary, Ray made frequent service trips to the many of the newly-constructed northern RCAF radar stations. He was discharged in  1957. Later, the call of the sea once again attracted his attention, and in 1962, Ray signed up for service in the newly-created Canadian Coast Guard, and spent time in the Arctic, sailing through the  North West Passage on the recently-built icebreaker CCGS Joan A. MacDonald. After leaving the Coast Guard in 1963, Ray re-settled in South Bar, returned to the Steel Plant, working in the electrical department and stayed there until his retirement in 1981, after 18 years  of service. Ray retired early at the age of 62 so he could, along with Mary, provide several years of daily care for his injured daughter Susan, who later passed away in 1987. On Oct. 3, 1991, Ray was devastated by the passing of his wife, Mary, his beloved wife of 50 years. Finding himself alone, he decided to become active in his community, revive some of his  early interests, and develop new ones. He became active in Branch 128 Royal Canadian Legion, Whitney Pier. He experienced great pleasure while performing with the Legion Singers. His services to the legion were recognized by  his comrades with the award of a life membership in Branch 128, as well as the Legion 50th Anniversary Medal. As Ray was so proud of his nautical experience, he joined the Cape Breton Naval Veterans Association in 1993. Spending time with this group of fellow sailors, recounting past exploits and  adventures, allowed these stories to remain fresh in his mind. Ray also rekindled his early interest in musical instruments. He greatly enjoyed travelling around the area providing entertainment as a member of the Ukulele Players. Ray always became  excited when the opportunity arose for him to ‘entertain’ visitors to his home using instruments ranging from his harmonica to his high-tech organ. Ray’s early naval/nautical interests re-emerged in his golden years in the form of a nautical-themed museum he created in his own home. Here, in one room, visitors could find more models,  certificates and pictures than thought possible. Ray and his museum were even the subjects of two extensive articles in the Cape Breton Post. Ray was active and in relatively good health through most of his retirement. He continued to drive his own vehicle until his 90th birthday. Shortly afterward he acquired an electric scooter  which he used with great glee to travel down to the nearby wharf. Ray continued to live his his own home until his passing. This accomplishment was a result of the support he received from his family and homecare. He remained an engaging and entertaining storyteller who welcomed the opportunity to regale friends and relatives with tales of his early years, some of which may even have been true. He was quite proud to have contributed to Canada as a member of four services — merchant marine, Royal Canadian Navy, Royal Canadian Air Force and Canadian Coast Guard. It is believed that the time of his death, Ray was the oldest man living in South Bar. Raymond is survived by his loving children, Jerry (Earl) Sherwood, Gabarus, Mabel (Kevin) Pinhorn, South Bar, Raymond Digou, Vernon, B.C., Robert (Kay) Digou, South Bar, Lawrence  (Linda) Digou, South Bar, John (Cathy) Digou, Waverley; grandchildren, Earlene (Doug) MacPherson, Rosemary (Stephen) MacLean, Ray (Susan) Sherwood, Kevin Pinhorn, Stephen  (Corinne) Pinhorn, Jaime (David) Walker, Jennifer (Ryan) MacArthur, Raylene (Jimmy) Murphy, Suzanne (Bill) Rosentreter, Jean Paul Digou, Michael Digou, Robbie (Rosie) Digou, Elizabeth  (Mike) Hall, Lori (Nigel) Westbury, Heather Digou, Danielle Digou and Maria Digou; as well as 24 great-grandchildren, Donna and Douglas MacPherson, Kelsie, Janelle and Cameron  MacLean, Keith and Jesse Sherwood, Christine, Erika, Jessica, Jeffrey and Matthew Pinhorn, Jack and Anna Walker, Angelena and Ryan MacArthur, Nicole and Keagan Murphy, Taeler and  William Rosentreter, Celine and Dillon Hall, William Digou and Julia Westbury. He is also survived by his sister, Emily MacIsaac, South Bar; brother, Jackie Digou, South Bar; as well as many  nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his wife Mary, daughter, Susan Nemeth, sister, Lucy Gillis, brother, Harry Digou, two grandsons in infancy. Visitation will be held Friday, Nov. 5 at the S.W. Chant & Son Funeral Home, 564 Alexandra St., Sydney, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral service will take place 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 6 in the  funeral home chapel with Fr. Ray Huntley officiating.

Dillon Erna S Dillon Cape Breton Post 6/2/2009
Erna Dillon, SydneyBorn in 17/06/1918 at Grand Lake , Nova Scotia , CanadaIt is with great sadness that we announce the death of our mother, Erna Dillon, on May 29, 2009. As deeply as we mourn her loss, we more joyfully remember and celebrate the wonderful life she lived for almost 91 years.Erna Sarah Lydia MacAulay Dillon was born on June 17, 1918 in Grand Lake, Cape Breton to Malcolm and Alma (Cann) MacAulay.Grand Lake’s one room school, Sydney Academy (1935) and Normal College (Teaching, 1937) provided Erna’s formal education. She became the new school teacher in Round Island, boarding with the Dillon family and there met the Dillons’ eldest son, Wilfred. Wilfred and Erna were married in 1940 and settled in Sydney to eventually welcome their son, Robert.Although the war temporarily took Erna and Wilfred to Saint John, N.B., Erna’s life was absorbed as wife to Wilfred, mother to five children, grandmother to eight grandchildren and eventually two great-grandchildren. Cromarty Street was home for over 50 years with children, friends, and family coming and going, chocolate chip cookies never let to cool, and tea on the stove. Despite her busy family, Erna enjoyed involvement in St. Andrew’s United Church and its UCW, as well as the Cape Breton Rug Hookers. Her lifelong friends from “Club” provided much laughter and support as did many close neighbours, in mostly happy times, but inevitably, some sad.

His paternal ancestry, from Brittolli (Province of Pescara) Abruzzo, Italy was reflected in his love of gardening and landscaping. His maternal ancestry from Ingonish, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia instilled in him a love of hunting and fishing and the gift of story telling. True to the Cape Breton tradition he entertained friends and family members with countless tales of his fascinating and humourous life encounters.
