Little did we know that morning
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
but you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide.
And though we cannot see you,
you are always by 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.

Donovan Margaret (Margie) Elizabeth Donovan Cape Breton Post 11/19/2004 Carol MacLean MARGARET (MARGIE) ELIZABETH DONOVAN - Mar 27, 1966-Nov 17, 2004 - Glace Bay - Surrounded by her loving family, in the presence of God, it is with great sadness that the Donovan family announce the peaceful passing of Margaret Elizabaeth Donovan of 234 Dominion Street, in Glace Bay. Margaret's life had two chapters. The first ended in December 1983 at age 17 as a result of a tragic car accident which left Margaret with very serious injuries. The second chapter from that day forward consisted of love, dedication and devotion from both her family and extended family. For the next 21 years of her life, Margie formed strong bonds with the medical staff (her extended family) of the MacKillop Hospital, Thunder Bay, Ontario, the former Community Hospital, the Glace Bay General Hospital and more recently the New Waterford Hospital. The dedication of her parents, sisters and brothers toward Margie, paved the way for Margie to be cared for at home for the past five years. One quickly overlooked Margie's handicaps as her smile and bright eyes would light up the room when a family member or caretaker visited with her. Born in Glace Bay, Margie attended Sterling Elementary School and Morrison High School. She had a fond love of baseball and during her teen years, played for North Street A's ball team. She had an overwhelming love of animals. Her ambitions were to work with animals. Margaret was the beloved daughter of Sarah (McGillivary) and Lawrence Donovan of Glace Bay, cherished sister of Marie (EIA) & (Bart) Boutilier of St. Thomas, Ontario, Delores (Danny) MacKay of Glace Bay, Karen (Cecil) MacNeil of Glace Bay, Linda (William) McNeil of Glace Bay, Brenda (John) Poirier of Dominion, Donnie (Marilyn) Donovan of Glace Bay and John (Mary) Donovan of Glace Bay. She was also loved and cherished by 17 nieces and nephews, one great niece and nephew, many uncles, aunts and cousins. Margie was predeceased by her paternal gandparents, Mr. and Mrs. John James Donovan & Mr. and Mrs. Charles McGillivary and serval uncles and one aunt. Margie will be missed by all who had the opportunity to share in her life. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Curry's Funeral Home, 775 Main Street in Glace Bay. Visitation for the late Margie Donovan will be held Saturday November 20 from 7-9 pm and Sunday November 21 from 2-4 & 7-9 pm.

Her students felt loved and respected; many have approached her as adults to thank her for her kindness and to tell her of their fond memories of being in her class.
Aggie will be remembered for her amazing generosity, her strong faith and her endless hospitality to all who entered her home. "When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a beautiful treasure to always hold in your heart".

(This must be the man killed in the industrial accident in Dartmouth yesterday) Worker falls to his death (From the Halifax Herald July 29, 2004) Two men drop eight metres when steel roof joist slips By SUSAN BRADLEY and DAVENE JEFFREY / Staff Reporters A construction worker was killed Wednesday morning in a Dartmouth business park in a fall caused by the collapse of a steel joist. The accident, the second this month at a work site on John Savage Avenue in Burnside Park, happened at 7:30 a.m. and slightly injured another man. "The preliminary information we have is that two employees were on a steel joist when it slipped out of a pocket in the wall," Labour Department spokeswoman Penny McCormick said. Both men were employed by Marid Industries of Lower Sackville, which specializes in steel construction. Marid is building the steel frame for a large warehouse in the business park. B.D. Stevens Ltd. is the general contractor. Earlier this month, the Labour Department issued Marid four orders under the Occupational Health and Safety Act after one of its employees fell from a man lift, suffering minor injuries. Work on the construction job ceased after Wednesday's accident. At noon, the site had been taped off and a group of people with hard hats were examining the area. A spokesman for Halifax Regional Police said the investigation has been turned over to the Labour Department. Marid general manager David Oulton said the men were working on the roof of the warehouse, about eight metres off the ground, when the accident happened. Their identities have not been released, although police said the deceased man was 37 and from Cape Breton. Mr. Oulton said the ironworker had worked for the company on and off for several years. The other worker involved in the fall was taken to hospital and returned with a bandage on his arm, Mr. Oulton said. "He says there is nothing wrong with him," Mr. Oulton said. He confirmed the man was quite shaken up but considers himself very lucky. The company has employed about 12 workers at the John Savage Avenue job site. They have been working since the first of the month and the project is about two-thirds complete, Mr. Oulton said. Marid has an excellent safety record, the general manager said. "We are extremely to inordinately concerned about safety," Mr. Oulton said, adding this is the first serious accident in the company's 21-year history. On July 16, a Labour Department inspector was called to investigate after a Marid worker fell out of a man lift, a crane-like machine with a basket at the end of the boom. "The worker was suspended by his safety harness when the weld on a beam let go," Ms. McCormick said. She said the man sustained non-life-threatening injuries in the fall. Mr. Oulton described the injury as a cracked rib. "He was back at work but on light duty for a couple of days." The company was ordered to submit an accident incident report, have its fall protection system inspected, develop a safe work procedure for temporary supports on structures and inspect its man lift. No stop-work order was issued. Mr. Oulton said Marid has complied with the orders. The Labour Department is investigating both accidents. "We look at the workplace, the people, the environment and materials, all as factors that may have contributed to the accidents," Ms. McCormick said. "This usually takes a minimum of six weeks to complete." Wednesday's death brought to 10 the number of workplace fatalities in Nova Scotia since Jan. 1.

Donovan Traynor Joseph Donovan CBP 4/20/2011
It is with broken hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Traynor Joseph Donovan at his home in Glace Bay on Monday, April 18, 2011. Born in Ingonish, Traynor was the son of the late Florence Beatrice Doyle and Thomas James Donovan. Traynor’s mother passed away when he was only five years of age. Traynor and his siblings were then cared for by his grandparents, Joseph Doyle and Margaret (Young) Doyle who he was very close to. Later to prevent the children from going to foster homes, Traynor’s half brother, Duncan Donovan and Traynor’s aunt, Frances Cooke, who lived in Sydney, where Duncan was a fulltime employee of the Sydney Steel Plant, moved back to Ingonish to raise the children and keep the family unit together. Traynor became particularly close to his half brother and aunt, Frances. Left to mourn are his sons, Traynor (Valerie), Oromocto, Donnie (Janice), Glace Bay; daughters, Anne (Simon), Glace Bay, Mary (Clifford) Desveaux, Glace Bay. Also surviving are his treasured grandchildren, Kyle, Connor, Emily, Evan, Robbie, Brandon, Patrick, T.J., Brian and Wayne; great-grandchildren, Kaitlin, T.J., Owen, Charlotte and Tyson; brother, Leo, Ingonish and many nieces and nephews. Traynor was predeceased by the love of his life, wife, Anne (Keylor), who he adored, and a son, Thomas. Traynor was also predeceased by brothers, Earl, Isadore and sisters, Irene and Theresa. Traynor left Ingonish at the age of 14. He arrived in Sydney working odd jobs. As he grew older, he worked as a crane operator at the Sydney Steel Plant. In the mid 1950s, he became manager of Scotts Hardware in Ashby where he met his longtime best friend, Joe Waye. Together they started the country and western band, the T.R.

One of Traynor’s biggest thrills was meeting and becoming friends for over 40 years with his boyhood music idol, Hank Snow. Traynor was often referred to as Cape Breton’s own version of Hank Snow and was widely known as a pioneer in music in Cape Breton. In 1996 the T.R. Ranch Boys won an ECMA for pioneers in country music. However, the most important part of Traynor’s life was that of a family man. He always put family first, especially his beloved wife of 53 years, Anne, who he adored. Traynor was a man of deep faith and although he loved and lived life to the fullest his strongest love was to be one day be reunited with his beloved wife, Anne. He will be sadly missed by family and friends and as Traynor would always quote a Hank Snow song, “I’m movin on”.

Traynor and his siblings were then cared for by his grandparents, Joseph Doyle and Margaret (Young) Doyle who he was very close to. Later to prevent the children from going to foster homes, Traynor's half brother, Duncan Donovan and Traynor's aunt, Frances Cooke, who lived in Sydney, where Duncan was a fulltime employee of the Sydney Steel Plant, moved back to Ingonish to raise the children and keep the family unit together. Traynor became particularly close to his half brother and aunt, Frances.

Also surviving are his treasured grandchildren, Kyle, Connor, Emily, Evan, Robbie, Brandon, Patrick, T.J., Brian and Wayne great-grandchildren, Kaitlin, T.J., Owen, Charlotte and Tyson and many nieces and nephews. Traynor was predeceased by the love of his life, wife, Anne (Keylor), who he adored, and a son, Thomas. Traynor was also predeceased by brothers, Earl, Isadore and sisters, Irene and Theresa. Traynor left Ingonish at the age of 14. He arrived in Sydney working odd jobs. As he grew older, he worked as a crane operator at the Sydney Steel Plant. In the mid 1950s, he became manager of Scotts Hardware in Ashby where he met his longtime best friend, Joe Waye. Together they started the country and western band, the T.R. Ranch Boys that ruled the radio and TV airways for 10 years in the 1950s & 60s. Traynor was hired by CJCB TV in 1966 which later became ATV & CTV until he retired after 25 years of service in 1991.

Lucy did not fall for flowery or embellished descriptions of people and therefore, her frankness has left us with an image of someone who worked hard all her life who lived life to its fullest in its most basic form. Her Acadian roots enabled her to remember many French, English and Irish songs which would have become lost without her contribution. She was audio and videotaped several times, including a song "Allons dancer lanture" or "Les Oiseaux des Champs", to be found on the CD of Delores Boudreau, which is a song Lucy learned at age 10 and never sang again until she was around 65. She is survived by daughter, Florence (Bill) Robinson, Glouchester, Mass., U.S.A.; son, Rev. Daniel Doucet, Sydney; grandchildren, Bill Jr., J.P., Michael, Frankie, Danny; several great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband, Patrick 'Henry'. She was also predeceased by Helen, Joseph and Danny Mike, who lived t o reach adulthood; there were other siblings who predeceased her at an early age. Visitation will be today (Friday), from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at Belle Cote Community Centre. Funeral mass will be held Saturday at 2 p.m. in St. Michael's Church, Margaree, with her son, Fr. Daniel Doucet presiding and Fr. J.J. MacDonald , Fr. Greg MacLeod and Fr. Jim Mac- Donald co-celebrants. Burial in the parish cemetery. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Cheticamp Funeral Services Ltd.

Passed in: Sydney
Passed on: July 1st, 2013
The family of Dinah Doucette sadly announces her death which occurred at the Cove Nursing Home, Sydney, July 01, 2013.
Her son Bedford was with her. Dinah was born in Cheticamp, Nova Scotia on June 21, 1912, the eldest daughter of Willie P. and Emma (LeForte) Haché.
At an early age Dinah, whose name is Marie Donathilde Hache, moved to Reserve Mines where she worked at St. Joseph Hospital, Glace Bay, and then as kitchen staff for the Sisters of Charity, St. Joseph Convent, Reserve. It was from there that Dinah met and eventually married Peter Doucette who was barbering at the time in Reserve, a service he joyfully provided in Reserve for over 45 years. Dinah was the last surviving member of her immediate family.
Peter and Dinah had five children, Cyril (Betty Wiseman) and their family of Rob, Rickie and Rayna, Woodstock, N.B., Corrine (Earl Andrews) with Franklin, Cal, Laureen and Darrin, Brampton, ON, Fr. Bedford (Diocese of Antigonish), Sydney; Leonard (Marilyn Tortola with Jason, Chad, Marianne, Melanie and Marc) Ottawa, On.; Lloyd (Scott and Tyson), Halifax, NS. Dinah has 19 great grandchildren.
Dinah was widely known and respected in Reserve and Scotchtown where she and Peter moved in 1974 after a lifetime in Reserve. She was recognized as a good wife and mother. She was a member of St. Joseph Parish, Reserve Mines and later at St. Michael in Scotchtown. Dinah was totally committed to her family and faith, to being a stay at home Mom and a “home-maker”. She was always there for her family and many friends.
A gracious and hospitable woman, she hosted many neighbors and life long friends whom she missed deeply in later years. A woman of great faith, Dinah had a particular devotion to the Rosary. Due to health reasons, she spent some time with her son, Leonard and family in Ottawa. In 2007 she went to the Cove Guest Home in Sydney where she continued to show her sincere concern for others. Dinah was always grateful for even the smallest kindness.

She loved to shop, travel, scrapbook, tole paint and she particularly enjoyed the company of family and friends. She loved summers spent at both family cottages. But her family was her biggest love, especially her children.
Mourning her passing are her husband, Peter and children, Nathan and Christopher; her parents Roy and Theresa; sister, Donna (Dave McKeough); brothers, David (Diane) and Troy (Tammy) and parents-in-law, Ed and Nora Doyle.
Predeceasing Janet were her aunt, Tina (LeBlanc) MacLellan, uncles, Darren LeBlanc and Edward Power and grandparents, Maurice LeBlanc, Lorraine Roland (LeBlanc), Wilbert Power and Ann (MacCarthy) Power.
Throughout her long illness, Janet’s life was touched by many people and special thanks are owed to many. In particular to Dr. Pahill and staff at the Cape Breton Regional Cancer Treatment Center and support group, the wonderful doctors and staff of the Palliative Care Service, her family doctor, Dr. A. Wawer and the various surgeons involved, a multitude of nursing staff at the CBRH and Northside General, especially those on 3A at the CBRH and to all those in the community who provided support and kindness.

Drake Stephen Michael Drake CBP 11/14/2012
Stephen Michael Drake

Born In: New Waterford, Nova Scotia, Canada
Born: October 30th, 1934

Passed on: November 12th, 2012

God called our home on Saturday past. Said He needed a hard workin' man to help him out in heaven. Steve agreed to lend a hand. He always did. He closed his eyes. Wait now, he thought, I have to make sure my kids are OK. Steve's life work had been about looking after his kids. Heaven would have to wait a bit . Steve was a coal miner for almost 40 years. He was hired to work in
Number 12 Pit in New Waterford just before his 16th birthday. It was 1950. He earned his stripes and was held in high regard as a good coal miner. His pit buddies put it best: Mother Nature couldn't outsmart him; nobody could out work him and he kept the cleanest section in the pit . On Aug. 5, 1955, Steve married the most beautiful woman in the world; Kaye MacAskill. They had four children, Stevie, Linda, Sherry and Patrick. The family lived in New Waterford; down by the shore. He would have little time to be a young father. When tragedy struck and Kaye could not be there for the kids; Steve became both mother and father. There was no blueprint for raising four small kids in the 1960s. The easy thing would have been to cut and run. Not Steve Drake. His kids would be raised in the family home . Steve worked in the pit ... tonnes of overtime. He moonlighted as a carpenter. He hired babysitters. His most trusted neighbours looked after the kids when he went to visit Kaye in Halifax. He was Santa Claus and Mr. Mom long before single parent families became acceptable; a beacon through our storms of life. He never asked for anything for himself. How do you thank a man who has taken his girls from crayons to perfume and his boys from BB guns to university? The words hero and knight in shining armour come to mind . Steve was a good man who led by example; quietly, with integrity, inner strength and a sincere concern for the well-being of others. No was not in his vocabulary. He was as warm to the kids at Halloween as he was to the neighbour who needed a leaky tap fixed. He made our home a safe haven for his own kids and every kid that walked through the door. He was Big Steve on the way in and Da or Poppa on the way out. He was just that way. He had an aura about him . Steve liked to tinker around his garage, watch the wrestling and read the newspaper; cover to cover. He could fly on the dance floor and taught his girls the two step by standing them on his feet. He played a mean game of tarabish and loved a good belly laugh. In his later years he built this great big deck facing Drake Street and sat out for endless hours enjoying the fresh air and many chats with his family, friends and neighbours. He chatted a lot . Steve's guidance and words of wisdom shone through in his blunt advice to his kids. Get an education. Do your job. Pay your bills. We all listened. His Olympic Gold was the four graduation pictures of his kids and three graduation pictures of his grandkids hung on the living room wall. He called it his "Honour Wall" . God waited while Steve slept through Saturday and Sunday. Da, we're here in the room. Stevie, Sherry and Patrick. We know you can hear us bud. Linda is on the phone from Alberta. Da, it's me Linda, I'm coming home, I love you. We're all OK . On Sunday, Steve's heart was full but he had one more thing to take care of. He did what he always did; he beat the odds. He stayed with his family until Monday. He took God's hand at 2:20 a.m. on Nov. 12; Ma's birthday. His job was done . Steve was a coal miner's son, born in New Waterford on Oct. 30, 1934, in the living room of the family homestead on Drake Street. William and Gladys (Deagle) Drake were his proud parents and blessed him with two brothers and two sisters . Left to remember him are his very proud kids, Stevie (Barb); Linda (Wayne); Sherry (Graham); Patrick (Jan); his two cherished grandkids Christopher and Julianna and his much loved sister, Elizabeth. He is in heaven today with Kaye, his parents, brothers Pat and Billy Joe, sister Margie, his cherished grandson Tyler and a menagerie of four-legged furry friends. Da, the proudest thing we ever got to say is that we're Steve Drake's kids . Luv ya Da. Miss ya Poppa . Special thanks to Dr. Sheira Haq, Dr. Peter Littlejohn and the wonderful staff on the Medical Floor at the New Waterford Consolidated Hospital . Visitation will be Thursday, Nov. 15, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 380 Smith St., New Waterford. Steve will rest at 12 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16, at the Calvin United Church, Hudson Street, New Waterford, where a celebration of his life will be held at 2 p.m. Interment will follow at St. Agnes Cemetery. Afterwards all are welcome to join Steve's family and friends at the Calvin Hall on Smith Street for hugs, tears, a belly laugh or two and a few old pit stories about God's newest helper . Donations may be made to the charity of your choice . Online condolences may be expressed at www.vjmcgillivray.ca .

Druker Lionel Druker CBP 8/28/2010
Lionel Druker

Born in: Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada
Born on: 21/03/1924

Passed away in: Tel Aviv, Israel
Passed away on: 25/08/2010

Lionel Druker, who will be greatly missed by his family and friends, and anyone who met him, died Wednesday in Tel Aviv, Israel.
He was born in Sydney, N.S., the second son of the late Max and Jennie Druker. After graduating from Sydney Academy he attended Mount Allison University, but left in the spring of 1944 to join the Canadian Army. When the War in Europe ended May, 1945, he volunteered to fight in the Pacific, until the end of the Second World War. He then resumed his studies at Mount Allison and the following year was accepted into Dalhousie University Law School.
In December, 1947, a few weeks after the United Nations voted to partition Palestine into a Jewish state and an Arab state, Lionel was elected National President of Canadian Young Judea, a branch of the Zionist Organization of Canada.
When it appeared likely that a war would ensue, he volunteered to help defend the new State of Israel. Having been trained in the Canadian Army to operate a tank, he became captain of the first tank corps in Israel. The tank he drove has been memorialized and is still displayed on stilts at a museum in Israel. By the time a cease-fire was signed about 18 months later, Lionel had met Rachel Flasher, a Jewish native of pre-partition Palestine, and they were married.
Lionel and a business partner, another Canadian, started a tour bus company, called United Tours, which they successfully ran for many years, contributing to the tourist industry in Israel. Lionel's success can be partly attributed to his charm and personality.
Although living a great distance from Canada, he returned many times to visit family in Sydney and Toronto
He is survived by his wife, Rachel; sons, Dror (Aviva), Tamir (Illana), Eyal (Cloudia); six grandchildren, all in Israel, and his brother, Avvie, Sydney.
When his grandson was married last year, he was proud that the number of Drukers in Israel had grown from one to 15.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his brother, Sid, Toronto.
He is also survived by several sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, many nieces and nephews in Israel, Canada, England and South Africa, all of whom adored and respected him.
Burial took place in Israel on Thursday, Aug. 26, 2010.

Duff Mrs. James Duff The Eastern Chronicle, New Glasgow, N.S. 12/28/1923 Carolyn Wallace : Stellarton Shooting Ends Fatally Cecil Lawrence, a young coal miner, of Evansville, Stellarton, is in jail charged with the murder of Mrs. James Duff belonging to the same place. The shooting took place on Sunday night following a drunken spree and fight at Evansville, in which several people took part. The story as related at the Coroner's Inquest was that Mrs. Duff had gone to the front door to close the storm door when Lawrence appeared with a shot gun. There were some words between them. Mrs. Duff telling him to put away the gun and Lawrence calling her a dirty Canadian. He fired two shots from the gun, the loads entering her body and inflicting serious wounds. She was taken to the hospital and there died on Christmas Day. The Coroner's Jury had no difficulty in finding that Mrs. Duff came to her death by being shot by Cecil Lawrence. A charge of murder was immediately laid against Lawrence, who had been under arrest, and a companion Vincent Roubiski was also arrested as accessory to the crime. The charge against Roubiski is that he did unlawfully counsel and abet one Cecil Lawrence to murder Elizabeth Duff. R.D. Graham is Crown Prosecutor and R.H. Graham, K.C., is acting for the prisoners. The preliminary trial was th have opened this morning before Stipendiary Finlay G. MacDonald, but owing to the illness of R.H. Graham, was adjourned until tomorrow morning. Lawrence and Roubiski are both Poles and lived in the same house at Evansville. There were found in their home other implements such as black jacks, knives, etc. indicating that these foreigners went about well armed. The whole sordid story as revealed at the Coroner's Inquest, is a rather astounding one and it is not a surprise that such conditions should develop into the tragedy stage. (*Cecil Lawrence was acquitted as not guilty at his trial ) The Duff family came from Cape Breton and Mrs. Duff(nee Jello) was a native of Mulgrave. Her husband is a locomotive engineer in the employ of the Acadia Coal company. There are nine children in the family, the youngest an infant of about twelve months. The remains of the victim of the tragedy are now lying at the family residence and the funeral will take place tomorrow to Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Stellarton.

His honesty and integrity together with his kindness of heart won for him true friends as was testified by the number attending his funeral at an early hour at 7:45.

His widow, Mary Dunlop, oldest of the family of the late Jim Dunlop of Groves Point, Boularderie, was left with three small children, John being about twelve years old.

Duffett Harold Duffett Sydney Post Record p 12 7/30/1940 R. Fraser HAROLD DUFFETT, 14, DROWNS IN ATTEMPT TO HELP COMPANION Morien Hill Youth Loses Life In Sight Of Shore At Glace Bay Lake; Leo Jackson, 10, Saved Glace Bay, July 29 - Glace Bay Lake this afternoon was the scene of the first drowning in the colliery districts this year, when Harold Duffett, 14 year old son of Mr and Mrs Albert Duffett, Morien Hill, drowned while engaged in the rescue of a younger companion, Leo Jackson, who got into difficulties while swimming from a float, anchored in the lake, to the shore about 300 feet away. The accident occurred about 150 feet from shore where upwards of fifty young people were bathing. The body was recovered from the water within a few minutes of the time the victim sank from sight and for nearly three hours relays of workers administered artificial respiration in an effort to revive the spark of life in the young lad. Efforts Fruitless Despite the untiring efforts of the workers, however, death took place about seven o’clock at the Glace Bay General hospital where he had been removed shortly after being taken from the water. The accident took place about four o’clock this afternoon not far from No. 24 colliery. From information gleaned from eye witnesses it is learned that Duffett and young Jackson, 10 year old son of Mr and Mrs James Jackson, School street, Caledonia, were among a group of others playing around the raft which is anchored in deep water. Jackson attempted to reach shore, but had not proceeded far when it became evident that he was unable to negotiate the distance, Duffett, a particularly strong swimmer, went to his assistance and grappled with the boy. Goes To Assistance However, for some reason he was unable to make progress towards shore and when it became evident that both were in difficulties, Jeanette Moore, 17 year old resident of School street, Caledonia, went to the assistance of the struggling pair. Miss Moore succeeded in freeing Jackson and proceeded to shore with the boy who was none the worse for his experience. For some reason Duffett sank below the surface and did not reappear. Two older youths, Michael Donadue and Gordon McInnis then proceeded to the spot where he had disappeared and within a minute or two had recovered the unfortunate lad and took him to the beach. Members of a military unit encamped nearby were on the scene when the boy was brought ashore and immediately proceeded with resuscitation efforts. Call was despatched to town police and Sergeant Art Frost and Officers Leo Gouthro and John McSween responded and assisted in the work. Vincent J McGillivray’s ambulance was on the scene within a few minutes and immediately the unconscious boy was rushed to the Glace Bay hospital where medical examination was conducted by Dr F G McAskill, and resuscitation resumed. These efforts were continued for upwards of three hours but shortly after seven o’clock the work was suspended when it became evident that life was extinct. Well Known Youth The youthful victim of the accident was particularly popular with residents of the Caledonia district where he resided all his life, and deep sympathy was expressed on all sides tonight for the surviving members of his family who are widely known in Glace Bay. Several years ago the victim and his younger brother, Gordon, narrowly escaped death from drowning when they broke through the ice on No. 2 dam and were struggling in the water for several minutes when they were rescued by a passerby who noticed their plight. To Hold Inquest Inquest into the fatality will be conducted before coroner A B McGillivray tomorrow, it was announced tonight. Jury will view the remains at the Funeral Parlors of Vincent J McGillivray at 9:30 Tuesday morning, and the inquiry will be conducted later. Besides his parents, the unfortunate boy is survived by six sisters and one brother. The sisters are Mrs Stanley Pitts, Halifax, Mrs George Hopewell, Mrs Arthur Grant, Mrs Sam Smith, living at Glace Bay and Jennie Duffett and Lillian Duffett, both residing at home. Gordon Duffett, is the surviving brother. Funeral will likely be held Thursday afternoon, members of the family intimated tonight.

Duffy Dorothy Duffy Cape Breton Post 12/29/2005 Carol MacLean Dorothy Duffy SYDNEY It was a glorious day in June 1923,when a spirited, red-headed girl graced the lives of her parents, Harry and Lillian MacKenzie of New Waterford. It was a dark, cold winter night, Sunday, Dec. 18, 2005, when much to our surprise, she bid us farewell. She is joining her husband, Bill, parents and grandson. A private memorial service was held at Sydney Memorial Chapel, conducted by family friend, Rev. Dana Feltmate. Dot was a very proud member of the Royal Canadian Air Force. She received her certificate in cooking from MacDonald College in Guelph, Ont. During the Second World War, she served Canada in Torbay, N.L. All that knew her delighted in the stories of her fondest memories of her life in the service. Although her war stories were her favourite, the tales of her early life in Cape Breton captivated us, especially the one of how she got her first pair of gumboots. Her home on Stuart Street, Sydney, was a theatre where she relived her stories and told her jokes for an eager audience. She is cherished by all whose hearts she touched, her family, Marjorie White, Eileen (Duffy) Steele, Hilda (Duffy) Whiteman, Nadine and Bob Pridham, Lynn Muise, John and Lisa Duffy, Janice and Robert McGovern; her grandchildren who had the coolest grandmother, her great-grandchildren and her very dear friends. For 82 years, that wonderful woman enriched our lives with her sense of humour, her joy of life, her compassion and her unconditional love. It is time for Bette Davis to take a back seat, the very glamorous, ever funny Dorothy Duffy has arrived.

Dunford Joseph R. Dunford


Joseph R. Dunford 52, Waverley It is with a deep sense of sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Joseph R. Dunford, 52, on August 22nd, 1999. His early education was in Sydney, C.B., and Brampton, Ont., and he later graduated from Ryerson Polytechnical Institute. He earned his engineering degree from the University of Waterloo in 1972. Prior to forming his own company in 1980 he worked for Bell Canada and Telesat Canada. As the president and foulder of EnviroSeal Engineering Products Ltd., his guiding hand and spirit will be sorely missed. His groundbreaking products revolutionized the Pumping Process Industry globally, and are Joe’s legacy to the world. Always exuberant about new technology, Joe’s engineering creativity and keen insight allowed him to explore problems in new ways, as he masterminded solutions that were as elegant in their simplicity as they were successful in their application. Joe’s relentless pursuit of excellence resulted in several unique inventions and subsequent patents. His dedication to revolutionizing this industry resulted in his earning several local, national and international awards. The culmination of Joe’s efforts was recognized world wide in 1995, when he was presented with the very prestigious Vaaler Award. Joe was the first Vaaler Award winner from outside the United States since the award was first presented in 1964. In addition, he received several nominations and became a finalist in 1996 for the Atlantic Entrepreneur of the Year Award. Joe was a member of the Association of Professional Engineers of Nova Scotia, the Inventors Society of Nova Scotia, Alderney Squadron Atlantic District, and The Canadian Federation of Independent Business. He coached minor hockey for several years and later became extensively involved with the sport of canoe and kayak. His passion for his children and the sport spawned the creation of a revolutionary new starting system – the “CanStart”– which he designed together with Greg Maloney. Their system premiered during the Canoe 97 World Championships in Dartmouth. Joe’s inspiration and foresight over his years of association with the Cheema Aquatic Club has been recognized as a major contribution to the club’s ongoing success. He is survived by his wife, Aniko (nee Horvath); his children, Ryan and Mandy; sister, Beverley Genge, Langley, B.C.; and brother, Bill, Sydney, N.S. He was predeceased by his mother, Annie Rose (nee Cann), his sister, Marie, and father, William. Joe was a devoted husband to Aniko, a loving father to Ryan and Mandy, a warm and caring friend to many, a lifelong athlete and sailor, and a brilliant engineer and inventor. He touched countless lives around the world during his all-too-brief stay among us, and he will be remembered with fondness, love and respect by all those he left behind. A “Celebration of Joe’s Life” will take place at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, September 1, 1999, at the Inn on the Lake, Lake Thomas, Waverley, N.S. In lieu of flowers, we ask your kind support of one of the following charitable organizations. The Canadian Diabetes Association - Research Fund or The Joe Dunford Memorial Bursary of the N.S. Amateur Sport Fund, c/o Sport Nova Scotia, PO Box 3010 South, Halifax, NS B3J 3G6. “Whatever ocean you’re sailing now, Joe, may you always have fair winds and following seas. 8/22/1999

Dunn David W Dunn Sydney Post Record p 9 1/4/1937 R. Fraser DIES AT THE KEY HE HELD 30 YEARS D W Dunn, Brother Of Sydney Railwayman, Passes At Spokane, Wash. - Friends of Andrew Dunn, well known Sydney railwayman, will regret to learn of the death of his brother, David W Dunn, which occurred in Spokane, Wash., recently. The following is account of his death taken from a Spokane paper. David W Dunn, 56, S2738 Manito boulevard, veteran dispatcher for the Great Northern railroad, died suddenly yesterday at the downtown offices of the company. He was stricken with his hand at the key he had used for 30 years. Friends said that was the manner in which he hoped to meet death when his time came. Mr Dunn went to work at 8 o'clock. Less than an hour later he fell from his chair. Companions laid him on a table and notified the emergency hospital and physicians. But there was no trace of life when aid arrived within a few minutes. Came to Spokane in 1907. Born in Scotland, Mr Dunn came to this country 54 years ago, settling with his family in Nova Scotia. As a young man he followed railroad work there, and in 1907 came to Spokane. He obtained a position with the Great Northern as a dispatcher. Three years later he was transferred to Marcus, where he became chief dispatcher of that division. Returning to Spokane in 1921, he soon was made night "chief" and remained on that job until recently when he was given a day shift. In addition to his widow, Augusta J, at the home, Mr Dunn leaves two sons, Dr Donald W Dunn of Spokane and George W Dunn at Kellogg, Idaho, and a daughter, Margaret Jayne, at the home. A brother and three sisters reside in Canada. The body is at the Smith funeral home.

Passed away on: 14/05/2010

The family of Florence 'Beauty' Dunphy are celebrating her 87 years of life as she gœs home to be with Jesus. She was known to all as Beauty since her birth. Not only was she beautiful on the outside, her caring spirit made her beautiful to others who were in her presence.
She was born in Glace Bay and lived in New Aberdeen and Dominion prior to moving to California. She was the daughter of the late Duncan MacKay of Scottsdale, C.B. and the late Annie Welton of Parrsboro, N.S.
She is survived by sons, Francis (Kim), Florida, George (Cathie) Colorado, and Brenda (Glenn Fraser), Glace Bay; grandchildren, Gregory, Monique, Paul, Kenneth, Kerri and Kristine; as well as her great-grandchildren, all of whom she was extremely proud.
Following the passing of her husband, Francis Dunphy, of 43 years, Beauty decided to come home to be near family and friends. It was during this time that she was reunited with her lifelong friend Kay 'Charlie J' MacDonald. Together with her late sister, Anna O'Neill, they spent many fun filled days during their travels and adventures, so much so that they became known as 'The Golden Girls'.
Beauty was known for her wonderful sense of humour and she had a way of making everyone who was in her presence laugh and smile. She was a woman of strong faith and placed great trust in the Lord with all her decisions. Beauty was blessed with the gift of hospitality. If you just needed someone to listen or a place to stay, her door was always open. Although Beauty is no longer here with us, she will always live in our hearts and memories.
Visitation will be held today (Monday, May 17), from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. in Curry's Funeral Home, 775 Main St., Glace Bay. The funeral mass will take place 11 a.m. Tuesday in Holy Cross Church, Glace Bay.

With his theological studies almost completed with the Atonement Friars, his vocation to the priesthood shifted to the Diocesan priesthood and he was ordained for the Diocese of Antigonish on May 19, 1968. During the next 42 years he served at St. Ninians, Antigonish; St. Anne's, Glace Bay; Holy Redeemer, Sydney and as Pastor at St. Peter's Parish, St. Peter's; Immaculate Conception, Sydney Mines; and Immaculate Heart/St. Joseph, Sydney. Through the years he served on many diocesan committees and, while in Sydney Mines did some community development work with the Sydney Mines Renewal Association.

Diddy peacefully passed away March 1, 2012, at his residence in the Harbourstone Enhanced Care facility, Sydney.He will live long in the hearts of everyone who knew him or had contact with him over the course of his 96 years. Those who knew him were charmed with his wit, his passion for storytelling and his remarkable ability to recite poetry.Diddy was born in New Melbourne, Nfld., to George and Melina (Thorne) Durdle and was the eldest of 11 children. He was self-educated and had an insatiable love of literature. At age 14, he went to work in the coal mines in New Waterford to help the family during the Depression. He worked hard, was promoted to underground management and was also a dragger man. Those who worked with Diddy spoke highly of him. He loved the work, often noting that the comradery experienced in the pit was like no other. When he retired in 1974, he took up residence in his favorite place on the planet, his cottage in Pt. Michaud. He loved to walk the beach. He lived there until becoming ill in 2000 when he moved to Sydney to live with his daughter Brenda. He was able to continue to visit at Pt. Michaud until the last few years, which he spent at Harbourstone. When his dear friend Edward Madden passed away, Diddy took over Edward’s role as Mayor of Pt. Michaud. His door was always open and he trusted everyone; he was generous and honest. He had a great sense of humour and loved to make people feel good.Diddy was married to Josephine ‘Jo’ (Johnstone) Durdle, the love of his life, who passed away in 1969. He leaves behind his loving daughter, Brenda (Jim MacDonald); brothers, Len (Gladys) and Bernie (Brenda) and sister, Winnie (Tom) Ball. His loss will be deeply felt by his extended family of nieces and nephews, their children and members of his Madden family at Pt. Michaud and his many friends of all ages. Besides his wife Jo and his parents, he was also predeceased by sisters, Belle (John) Pyke, Myrtle (Rod) MacDonald and Hazel and brothers, Ches (Effie), Norman (Freda), Edward (Eileen) and Allister ‘Diddle’ (Tootsie). Cremation has taken place under the direction of V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 380 Smith St., New Waterford. With respect to Ditty’s wishes there will be no visitation or funeral service.His firm request was that Pt. Michaud be his final resting place. This will take place at some, as yet, undetermined time this summer. Diddy’s preferred charity was the Multiple Sclerosis Society, but he would be happy if you were to make memorial donations in his memory to any charity of your choice. Diddy, quoting Tennyson, said many times, “Let there be no moaning at the bar…when I embark”.Online condolences to the family can be expressed at www.vjmcgillivray.ca. 3/1/2012 New Melbourne, Newfoundland
