I’d like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun, of happy memories that I leave when life is done. (Unknown) Mom behind a giving hand is a warm and gracious heart. We love you Mom and will miss you. You will always be in our hearts and in our thoughts. Rest now Mom your journey is over and you are safe. Until we meet again Tosh, God Bless.

Elliot Jessie Elliot Vancouver Sun and/or The Province 11/12/2010
ELLIOT, Jessie Kathryn It is with great love we acknowledge a life well-lived and announce the passage of our beloved mother, Jessie Kathryn Elliot. "Kaye" was born in Inverness, Nova Scotia in 1915 to parents Duncan Gerald MacDonald and Georgina Goode Gray. Kaye was proud of her Cape Breton roots and possessed many of the qualities for which Cape Bretonners are famous: kind, loving, eternally cheerful and always thinking how she could help someone else. People wondered how Kaye could be so nice all the time. But there was nothing phony about it - it was the way she was. Those who knew her soon discovered that underneath the cheery exterior Kaye was strong as steel and the ultimate survivor. She was all about getting the job done and living life to the fullest - however long that may be. Kaye is predeceased by her sisters Margaret Helen (Peggy) MacDonald and Vivian Gray Fitzpatrick (nee MacDonald) and her brother John Clarence MacDonald. Kaye is survived by her brother-in-law Bill Elliot and wife Marg of Vancouver. In 1943 Kaye married the man who would be the love of her life, Ottowell Blake Elliot (predeceased). After their marriage in Sydney, Nova Scotia they came west to begin a new life in BC, Kaye demonstrating great courage to leave her Cape Breton home and train across a continent. "OB" became a highly respected educator and school principal in New Westminster for 43 years. Building a home on an acre of land in Coquitlam, Kaye and OB provided an idyllic childhood for their 4 children, Bill Elliot, Vivian Elliot, Helen Erlendson (nee Elliot) and Jim Elliot. Kaye and OB always put family first, ahead of their own material needs. They were additionally blessed to have Sonya Schneider and Trevor Erlendson join the family as life-partners to Bill and Helen respectively. Kaye was a proud grandmother to Christina Elliot, Erin Elliot, Melissa Erlendson, Amanda Erlendson and Chris Atkins. Like OB, Kaye loved the energy, hopes and dreams of the young, especially her own grandchildren. One of Kaye's lifelong passions was her involvement with the P.E.O. Sisterhood, a philanthropic educational organization dedicated to the advancement of young women. She was honoured with her 50-year gold-star PEO pin in 1995. A private interment will be followed by a public Celebration of Kaye's life on Monday, January 17, 2011, 2 p.m. at Como Lake United Church, 535 Marmont Street, Coquitlam B.C. In lieu of flowers a donation in Kaye's name to the Weatherby Pavilion at Peace Arch Hospital would be greatly appreciated. 11/12/2010 Inverness in 1915 Date of death not noted in obit

We, the family and friends, regret to announce the death of a dear aunt and friend, Mary Theresa Elliott. Mary passed peacefully into the arms of her Lord and Savior on Saturday, Sept. 29, 2012 at the Harbourview Hospital, Veteran's Wing in Sydney Mines. Born in Leitches Creek, Mary was the only daughter of John Robert and Mary Agnes (Nutall) Elliott. Mary had very fond memories of her childhood growing up in the Creek and remembered very vividly when her brothers went to Western Canada on the harvest trains to find work. Mary enlisted in 1942 to the Canadian Women's Army Corp. active service and obtained the rank of sergeant. She served in the Canadian Dental Corp. and was stationed in Halifax, Toronto and Sydney. Upon the end of the war in 1945, Mary returned home and went to work for Dr. George MacLeod in New Waterford. She would be seen everyday before 7 a.m. walking the two miles to catch the bus at Dunlop's Store and at night returning no matter the weather to trek home. When Dr. MacLeod closed his practice, Mary went to work for Dr. Moses Claener and stayed for 25 years until a broken hip forced her retirement at the age of 70 years. Mary leaves to mourn her nephew, William 'Bud' Evans, Mosseyrock, WA., her nieces, Ethel Keen, Ethel, WA., Carol Moore, Mosseyrock, WA., and Sandra and Doug Osborne, Onalaska, WA.; dear friends, Derek and Shirley Bonnell, in whose home she resided for 31 years and their children, Shelley Musgrave (Dave Cogger), Moncton N.B., Angela (Troy) Colburn, Bras d'Or, Marsha (James) O'Rourke, Wooler, Ont., and Scott (Denise) Bonnell, Kentville, N.S. Mary regarded these children as her own and dearly loved Derek and Shirley's grandchildren. Mary also leaves to mourn good friends, John and Sheila MacLean and family, Sydney, who have been by her side for the last 15 years and also Valerie Baxendale and the dog, Abby. Mary looked forward to the days Valerie would visit with Abby. Mary was predeceased by her parents; brothers, Edward and Albert Elliott; nephew, Leonard and niece, Larraine. As per Mary's request there will be no visitation. Cremation has taken place. A funeral mass will be celebrated 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 5, 2012 at St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church, North Sydney with Rev. Patrick O'Neill officiating.

Albert Vincent 'Vince' Ells
Born In: Selmah
Passed on: April 27th, 2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend, Albert Vincent Ells.
Vince, who just recently turned 89, passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 28, 2013, at home, surrounded by his loving family.
Born Feb. 20, 1924, in Selmah, Hants Co., Vince was the son of the late Arthur and Winifred Ells.
At a very young age, Vince enlisted in the Canadian Army and served his country overseas in France, Belgium and Holland during the Second World War. He was decorated with the 1939-1945 France Star, the Germany Star as well as the Canadian Volunteer Service Medal. Upon his discharge, he returned home to marry the love of his life, Freda (Scott) Ells on Oct. 14, 1946.
After selling his Super Line Service Station in Walton, Hants Co., Vince secured work in the construction industry in Cape Breton in 1950 and for the next four years, travelled home on weekends to be with his family. In 1954 the family finally relocated to Westmount where they still reside. After being a superintendent with several construction firms, Vince formed and operated his own successful construction company, Ells and Sawlor Limited, until his retirement in 1991.
Vince was a member and elder of Westmount United Church where he supervised the building of the upper sanctuary. In 1947, Vince joined the Royal Canadian Legion in Kennetcook and later transferred to Westside Legion, Branch 126 and in 1996 received his 50-year medal.
He was a member of WD Lawrence Masonic Lodge and transferred to Eastgate Lodge 127 and in 1997 received his 50-year jewel. Vince was also a life member of Order of Eastern Star, Queen Elizabeth Chapter and served two terms as Worthy Grand Patron of N.S. and P.E.I. Vince was a charter member of Court Weatherby of the Canadian Order of Foresters (IOF).
In 1957, Vince helped form the Westmount Volunteer Fire Department and served as fire chief for 31 consecutive years and was instrumental in rebuilding the fire hall after a tragic fire destroyed most of the structure in 1989. He was a life member of Maritime Fire Chiefs and Honorary Member of both the Westmount Volunteer Fire Department as well as the Chief Fire Officers Association. He was also an honorary life member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Westmount Volunteer Fire Department.
He was selected by community council as the Citizen of the Year in 1974 in what was then District 8. Vince was a proud member of Harbourside Seniors as well as the Sydney Pensioners Club. He was also presented with a life membership for 50 years of continuous affiliation with the United Brotherhood of Carpenters & Joiners, Local 1588. Vince loved hunting, fishing, bowling, a good game of tarabish and had an avid interest in restoring antique cars.
Our father was very active in his community and was always willing to help anyone who was in need of his skills or assistance. He truly was an all-around handyman as there was not much he could not build or fix. He was a true gentleman who still believed that a man's handshake was his word. He had a keen sense of humour which he retained even on his darkest days.
Vincent is survived by his devoted wife of over 66 years, Freda and was a proud father to his daughters, Maralyn (Jerome) Ralph and his children Daniel and Scott; Alda Breen and his only son, Art. He will also be lovingly remembered and missed by his grandchildren, Tracey Grabher, Michelle (Steve) Lawrence, Troy Grabher and his fiancée, Jennifer Holm and her children Carleigh and Kendall MacKenzie, Jason Breen and his fiancée, Leanne Beaton and Darren (Jennifer) Ells. His great-granddaughters, McKenzie and Kaitlyn Paiva, Jayda Lawrence and Baby Girl Ells who will arrive in June held a special place in his heart.
Vincent was predeceased by his parents, his only sister, Del (Ian) Cotterill and by Alda’s fiancée, (Singing) Peter MacDonald.
The family would like to express sincere gratitude to dad’s physician for almost 40 years, Dr. Glenn Gracie. We also feel indebted to his wonderful Earth Angels, Debbie Caines and Bonnie Clark. Without their caring and compassion, and the wonderful support provided by the VON, the Palliative Care team of doctors, his nurse Jackie Barrett, DVA, and his Homecare workers Clayton, Robert, JR, Dave and Donald, as well as many others who became like part of the family. Without all of them, Dad would not have been able to have his wish to leave this world from the comfort of the home he lovingly built.
Visitation will take place at Sydney Memorial Chapel on Tuesday, April 30 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Ironically, Dad built and remodelled Sydney Memorial Chapel when they first started in the funeral business. A Legion Service will be held at 7 p.m. Funeral services to celebrate Vince’s life will be held at Westmount United Church on Wednesday, May 1, 2013 at 2 p.m. with Rev. Bob Biggar and Rev. Tommy Whent officiating. A reception will follow in the church hall.
As per his wishes, cremation will take place with burial in Selmah United Church cemetery at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to An Cala Hospice-Palliative Care, the VON or a charity of one's choice.
Words of comfort may be sent to the family at www.sydneymemorial.ca or sydneymemorialchapel@ns.sympatico.ca.

Ronald ‘Rannie’ Joseph Ellsworth, 82 of Glace Bay passed peacefully in to the arms of our loving God on Thursday, May 23, 2013 at Victoria Haven Nursing Home, Glace Bay.
Rannie was born on Dec. 30, 1930 to the late Michael and Gertrude (Thompson) Ellsworth. He was educated in Dominion schools, where he had many friends, playing basketball and a variety of other sports.
Rannie met Josephine Gallant, from Reserve Mines. They travelled to Toronto where they married on Sept. 3, 1960. During the decade they lived in the big city, Rannie worked on TV valves for General Electric.
In 1968, they returned to Cape Breton Island, purchased/built their home in Westmount. In 1969 they welcomed their eldest daughter Andrea Nowell Kathleen Ellsworth. She now resides in Winslow, Maine with her 13 year old son, Avery Ronald Mills, who is blessed with many fond memories of “Poppie “. In two weeks Andrea will marry her fiancé, Richard Martelle, who was able to meet Rannie on a trip to Cape Breton last summer. A second daughter, Carrie Renee Leeann Ellsworth, joined the family in 1971. Renee lives in Calgary, Alta. and enjoyed several visits from her dad over the years. Renee remembers her dad’s loving words to always “make your own judgment”.
Known to his coworkers as “Ron”, he worked for the Sydney Steel Plant for several years. His job with Canada Post led him to retirement after 25 years of service. Ron loved participating in the local bowling and curling clubs. He particularly enjoyed travelling to Halifax for the tournaments with his buddies. He was always involved in his girl’s activities and the Fulton Avenue house served as a place where all were welcome.
Rannie loved fishing trips to Loch Lomond, long walks through Peter’s Field and feeds of lobster and crab at his sister, Susie’s home. Probably his favourite adventure was his visits to CIBC in Sydney River. He loved giving “his girls” a hard time and appreciated even more if they gave it back.
Rannie was predeceased by his brother, Everett Ellsworth; brothers-in-law, Joe Gallant and Lindy Syms. He was also predeceased by his sisters- in-law, Adeline Gallant, Winifred Gallant, Dorothy Gallant, Muriel MacNeil, Evelyn Syms and Velma Ellsworth. Ron was also predeceased by his son-in-law, Owen Mills.
In addition to his loving wife and children, Rannie is survived by his sister, Caroline ‘Susie’ Royal and her husband, Dannie of Dominion; brothers, Basil Ellsworth, Lennie Ellsworth and his wife, Ginger of Ontario and Wendell Gallant his brother-in-law, who lives in Dartmouth. Rannie will also be missed by many cousins, nieces and nephews and friends.
He was grateful to his wonderful neighbours back in Westmount, especially Murray and Kim Lewis who he looked at not only as friends but as an extension of his family. A special “thank you” to his niece, Lenore Sprake for always being there as an advocate and support for Rannie and Josie.
In addition, the family wishes to thank Dr . Cohen, the many doctors, nurses and staff at Victoria Haven, the Glace Bay Hospital and Cape Breton Regional for his care over the past 2 1/2 years. Thank you for taking the time to get to know and care for our husband, dad, grandfather and friend.
Cremation has taken place. Funeral arrangements are incomplete and will be announced by the V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, Glace Bay at a later date.

Marthe Emma (Timmons) Etheridge passed peacefully at Inverary Manor, Inverness. Marthe was Born in Margaree Centre to Gordon Bennett and Margaret (Hill) Timmons, Sunny Corner, N.B., who met in Maine, USA. They returned to North Windam, Maine when Marthe was eight and she moved back to Margaree at age 20 to marry Albert Etheridge after meeting him once more at age18. Albert built their home in 1934 (with two dollars in his pocket). In 1971 he was on the board which constructed Inverary Manor, which he could foresee as their retirement home. At 86, Marthe moved into the manor and has received loving care from all the staff during the past 12 years. Together they raised four daughters, Tanya (Jud) Carmichael, Margaree Valley, Kathleen (Walter) Ingraham, Coxheath, Muriel (Doug) Ross, Northeast Margaree, Sandra (Darrell) Carmichael, Port Williams. They produced 16 beautiful and much loved grandchildren and 33 adorable great-grandchildren. Marthe was a loving mother, wife and community worker. She was a self taught dress designer, competent bookkeeper and wonderful cook. Her fresh bread, rolls, biscuits, pies and cookies were loved by all, and oh – those doughnuts she made on a summers evening. She efficiently ran her household so that she always had time to volunteer. She was a member of Wilson United Church, UCW, Home and School, Eastern Star Lodge, ICCMH Auxiliary and Chaplency Committee. She loved teenagers and taught 4-H Club, Explorers, Senior Sunday School and spent many years as superintendent and treasurer. With her Albert, she operated Etheridge Cabins for 25 years, welcoming tourists, fisherman, hunters and Cape Breton miners to Margaree. Farm operations included dairy and beef cattle, pork and chickens. Albert sold lumber to Sydney from mills across Inverness County. With their young son-in-law, Jud Carmichael, they formed Etheridge and Carmichael Pulp Company to cut and truck pulp to Stora in 1960. Marthe was office manager and bookkeeper for all these ventures. She trained young women in the community as bookkeepers to help her. She tolerated Albert’s new horse racing hobby in 1960 but was never a fan. She refused to watch a horse race as she feared there might be an accident. Albert suffered a serious head injury in August 1983 at Inverness Raceway. She lovingly cared for him until his death in March 1984. She also leaves to mourn 14 grandchildren, Beth, Wendy, John, Jamie, Patricia, Jackie, Joclyne, Laurie, Suzanne, Tracey, Allison, Barbara, Angela, Martha and 31 great-grandchildren. She prayed every night for them to find the right mate as she had done. She is also survived by many cherished nieces and nephews. Marthe was predeceased by her sister, Margaret Anna; brother, Calvin; precious granddaughter, Hannah; grandson, Matthew and great-grandchildren, Sameon Ruth and Lucas. Marthe supported many foster children from Dr. Grahams Homes, India and Plan International. She would prefer we gave a gift to charity in her honour then to get a gift herself. She had a double cataract surgery in her eighties and was thankful for the gift of sight. Family flowers only. Memorial donations in Marthe’s memory may be given to Wilson United Church Building Fund, Inverary Manor, Christian Blind Mission or charity of your choice.

She will always be remembered by her family, friends and journalistic colleagues for her always-positive love of life and her unique presence that could captivate and intrigue people from all walks of life.Upon graduation from high school, Stasia worked for the Glace Bay Gazette in the 1940s as a cub reporter covering local town and coal miner’s union matters. She then moved on to Toronto, where she found her real calling in life - writing about people and fashion. Stasia landed a job with the Toronto Telegram as a fashion reporter. After five years at the old Tely she moved to the west coast of Canada and worked as a journalist and reporter for the Vancouver Sun for several years.Returning to Toronto in the early 1960s she re-joined the Toronto Telegram as a fashion writer. Just prior to the Toronto Telegram’s closing, Stasia left the Telegram to join the Toronto Star as a writer in the fashion section where she remained until the mid eighties. With time Stasia moved gracefully from her globetrotting, fashion writing career to the Star’s seniors’ column “The Age of Reason”. Finally, in May 1991 she put down her typewriter for good after almost 50 years in fashion writing and journalism to officially retire from the Toronto Star.Stasia is survived by her sister, Helen (Zsolt) Molnar, Brantford, Ont. and brother, Bill (Francie) Evasuk of Glace Bay.Stasia was predeceased by her younger brother, George (Carmie) Evasuk of Glace Bay.Stasia has a number of nieces and nephews who she touched and who will miss her treasured personality and glamorous life-style.Stasia had many suitors over the years but never married or had children.A Celebration of Stasia’s Life will be held this coming August at St. Anne’s church in Glace Bay when all her family is “down home”, back on the Mira.No flowers or donations for Stasia.
