Forbrigger T. Melvin Forbrigger CBP 4/13/2012
On April 6, 2012, Thomas Melvin Forbrigger died peacefully at the Strait Richmond Hospital in Evanston, with his wife of 51 years beside him. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease claimed his life but not his spirit. Melvin died as he had lived, bravely, uncomplainingly and always mindful of the feelings of others. Born in the family home, overlooking the Strait of Canso in Point Tupper on Aug. 10, 1934, Mel was the cherished son of Nina (O’Hearn) and William J. Forbrigger, the fourth child in a family of eight. After attending Point Tupper School, Mel entered the workforce while still a teenager. He worked on the construction of the Canso Causeway and was employed by Canadian National Railway for 17 years. He held a variety of positions, including brakeman and bridge and building employee. During the years of industrial expansion in the Strait area, he worked as a carpenter on many building sites, including the Gypsum Shipping Depot, the pulp and paper mill and Centennial School. In 1970, he became a permanent employee of the local pulp and paper mill where he remained until retirement. Melvin was there on that fatal day, Feb. 8, 1982, when an explosion ripped through the building in which he and Alfred Richard were working high up on scaffolding. Calmness in times of difficulty and ingenuity in solving problems, were traits of Melvin’s which stood him in good stead. Under dire circumstances, in thick blackness and at great personal risk, Melvin was able to get Alfred down from the heights in which they were working and led him through the gas-filled darkness until reaching a spot where Mel broke through gratings, finding some fresh air that helped them to breath through the poisonous gasses. The grateful Richard family personally honoured Melvin, “for a most courageous deed in saving the life of Alfred Richard in the explosion at Nova Scotia Forest Industries.” Melvin was an active community member, always ready to lend a hand to help others. In his younger days, he served as a Point Tupper School trustee, coached minor hockey, fundraised for a new hall at St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church and served on the executive of the Strait of Canso Yacht Club. Melvin always loved spending time on the water and in his youth excelled as a dory oarsman. He spent many happy hours sailing in the area aboard his father’s ship, the Wawaloon, and later plied the local waters in his own boats. In the last years of his life, when no longer able to be so active, he took great pleasure in gazing across the harbour from the window of his home. There he could watch the comings and goings of ships at SuperPort Marine and marvel at the fine accomplishments of “young MacIntyre.” In retirement, Melvin also continued to enjoy the companionship of fellow union members when they met each Wednesday at the hall of CEP Local 972 for conversation and cards, tea and lots of stories and laughter. Melvin’s greatest and most lasting contribution to the Strait area was the restoration of the Point Tupper/Sunnyside Church and its conversion to an area museum. A founding member of the Point Tupper Heritage Association, Melvin immediately saw the potential in the derelict building when most people were still scoffing at the idea it could be saved. Upon retirement, he oversaw the restoration project, dedicating eight hours of work, five days a week, until its completion. Melvin took great satisfaction in seeing the restored church designated a Richmond County Municipal Heritage Building. A devoted family man, he was married to Lorena “Rena” Bethel and broke the stereotype of the absentminded male, by never once forgetting their wedding anniversary. He was father to Robert, Lorena (Greg Brophy) and David (Joanna Wine) Forbrigger, each of whom enriched his life immeasurably. He was like a father to his niece, Melodi Letcher and loved her as he did his own. Carol Digout, Joanna Wine and Tram Chau were all special people in his life, brightening each day in which he saw 4/6/2012 Point Tupper, Nova Scotia, Canada Born: August 10th, 1934

Forgeron David 'Ted' Forgeron CBP 6/12/2012
With sadness, the Forgeron family announces the passing of our husband, father and grandfather, Ted. The oldest son of the late Ambrose Forgeron and Eunice McDougall, he was born David Ambrose, but called Ted from a young age. His life stretched across Canada in his early years as he worked in Toronto at 19, the Royal Canadian Air force in Greenwood in his 20s, and then to Goose Bay Labrador. His evening conversation always included fond recollection of the time and place where he met his wife of 47 years, Muriel. He believed firmly in the capacity of all people to excel, and to grasp broader opportunities through knowledge and education. At 38 he completed his high school equivalency and Millwright trade program leading him to work at Gulf Oil in Port Hawkesbury and the Seaboard Power Station in Glace Bay. At all of these places he made lifelong friends that held tremendous respect for his capacity to work for the betterment of his family and the community in which he lived. His final years, until his very last day, were spent as a fisherman in the land that he loved, and where his passions for family, community, and the ocean could co-exist. He lived his life according to values shaped by teaching and experience, practicing right over wrong and he leaves a legacy of beliefs and principles for his family and friends to honour. Ted is survived by his wife, Muriel and his sons, Michael and Ian. Their wives, Kim and Michelle share in their loss, as does his granddaughter, Hannah. She will miss her Poppy but is happy he is at peace. His brothers Roy, Sid, Bill, Sandy and sister, Charlotte, are all home to share memories and celebrate his life. Ted was predeceased by his brother, Joe, and sister, Regina. A wake celebrating his life and legacy will be held in the Immaculate Conception Parish Church in Main-A-Dieu on Tuesday evening, June 12, 2012, after 6 p.m. as well as the afternoon and evening of Wednesday June 13 beginning at 2 p.m. A funeral mass will be celebrated on Thursday, June 14 at 2 p.m. with Rev.

Alexander 'Sonny' J. Forrest

Born in: Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia, Canada

Passed away in: Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed away on: 29/06/2010

It is with saddened hearts, we the family announce the passing of Alexander 'Sonny' Joseph Forrest on June 27, 2010.
Born in Sydney Mines, he was the eldest son of the late Edward and Annie (Young) Forrest. He moved to Ontario in his early years only to return and eventually retire in Antigonish.
Sonny, as he was called by family and friends, was a proud man who amazed most people by his good health and unlimited energy right up until the last few months of his life. To say he was a sport enthusiast would be an understatement. He was usually able to accurately predict the winner of a game, except of course, in the case of his beloved Montreal Canadiens. Most who knew him knew that he enjoyed life and loved to visit and catch up. He would never have wanted us to feel sad for him, as he believed that he lived a full life and was fortunate to have found love twice.
He is survived by his partner of 15 years, Marie Gale; his son, Wayne, Truro; daughters, Maureen, Sydney, and Deborah (Graham), West Bay; granddaughter, Jenna, Toronto; sisters, Joan Campbell and Eileen Morrison, Sydney Mines, Bernadette Marsh, Mill Creek, Linda (Alfie) Scott, Sydney Mines; sister-in-law, Mae, Sydney Mines; brothers, Russell (Audrey), Antigonish, Lloyd (Millie), Sydney Mines, Donnie, (Beryl), Mill Creek, Melvin (Rosena), Blacketts Lake, and Kevin, Millville. He will also be missed by his many nieces and nephews, as well as by his extended family, Cathy (Allan) Campbell and their daughter, Alexandra of George's River, Rosina (Shawn) Thompson and their two children, Kaitlyn and Connor, Oakville, Ont., and Paul (Shannon) Gale and their son, Lawrence, Red Deer, Alta.
He was predeceased by his loving wife, Marcella, his brother, Edward, and his brothers-in-law, Lawrence Marsh, Hector Campbell and Jimmy Morrison.
Cremation has taken place, at Sonny's request. There will be a memorial service Wednesday at 11 a.m. at St. Andrew's Church, St. Andrews, with Rev. Charles Cameron presiding. A second service will be held at St. Pius Church, Sydney Mines, on Friday at 11 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or the charity of your choice appreciated.
Funeral arrangements are under the care of the C.L. Curry Funeral Home, Antigonish.

She Passed on to them her love of all things Bob Dylan as well as the Grateful Dead and the Beatles. She loved her three cats Bob, Cali and Fiki. Any game that stimulated her brain was a must for Judy — from crosswords to Jeopardy to Words with Friends. Her home was her sanctuary where she cooked and tended her plants. In the end, she loved simply to sit and talk with her sons. The family would like to thank Dr. Irina Gurevich and her colleagues at the Jordan Hospital Club Cancer Center for their compassionate care of Judy throughout her illness. They also thank the staff at Radius Health Care Center for their excellent care during Judy’s two stays with them. She was predeceased by her father, Albert M. Basler and her stepfather, Michael D.

Francis Joseph Francis Eastern Chronicle, New Glasgow, N.S. 6/3/1924 Carolyn Wallace Joseph Francis, Ex-Chief Dead Yesterday morning, Joseph Francis, ex-Chief of Police, New Glasgow, died at Aberdeen Hospital. He had been ill for nearly two years. Against odds he fought to regain his strength but friends could see that the battle was going against him. He spent some time in the West Indies during last year and recently had been under treatment at the Kentville Sanatorium from which place he returned to Aberdeen Hospital and there he passed away. He was forty-six years of age and was born in Glace Bay. He was a member of the Police force of that town for a time and served as its Chief of Police during the big U.M.W. strike. When Military Marshall of that District he received the appointment of Chief of Police to New Glasgow in 1916 and moved here. As the head of the New Glasgow police force he gave excellent service and provided a faithful, efficient officer. Improvement that he inaugurated did much for the better regulation of police matters in New Glasgow and the methods he introduced are still followed. Following service with the town of New Glasgow he was given charge of the police work of the Nova Scotia Steel and Coal Company in Pictou County and as in all his service he applied faithfulness and honesty. He is survived by his wife, (formerly Miss Mary Anne O'Handley, of Dominion, C.B.), four sons and two daughters. The former are Thomas Aquinas, William David, James Charles and Adrian Butts. The daughters are Ida May and Jane Ellen. All the children are in their teens. In the home the grief at the loss of a husband and father is deep. Joseph Francis was a home-loving man and to him his family circle meant much. He was proud of his children as he had a right to be, for more honorable and courteous children one could not meet. They gave evidence of a splendid home life and it is sad to have such a severe break as the passing of a father. The writer has a keen personal loss in the death of Joseph Francis. For four years they were associates in Town life, one as Chief of Police and one as a Town Councillor and of the then Chief, the writer can say that he never knew him to do or suggest other than the straight and honorable course. He was a fearless officer and to the best of his ability and knowledge gave the Town faithful service. He was never rough or boisterous in the discharge of his duty and always endeavoured to treat citizens with every degree of fairness. No man is perfect and no one claimed such for Joe Francis. Those who thought they had visions of that perfection in some one else had reason to feel their judgement was not infallible. The late Joseph Francis was a member of the Roman Catholic Church. Funeral mass was held this morning in the Church of St.John the Baptist and the remains taken to Glace Bay for interment.

Fraser Alistair Fraser
1/24/1964 R. Fraser Antigonish, N.S. (CP) - Hon. Alistair Fraser, a former Lieutenant governor of Nova Scotia, died in hospital here Friday following a short illness. He was 77. Mr. Fraser, who lived in Guysborough, N.S., entered St. Martha’s Hospital here Jan. 13 and underwent surgery earlier this week for a cardiac disorder. Mr. Fraser became the province’s 21st lieutenant governor in 1952 and retired in in 1958. A native of New Glasgow, he had a distinguished career as a soldier, a lawyer and was a vice president of Canadian National Railways. The son of Hon. Duncan Cameron Fraser, also a lieutenant governor of Nova Scotia, he graduated from Dalhousie University law school in 1908. He was called to the bar in 1911 and was made a King’s Counsel in 1921. Won Military Cross Mr. Fraser practised law in eastern and western Canada until the outbreak of the First World War. He served overseas as captain company commander and adjutant winning two promotions in the field, and was awarded the Military Cross at Vimy Ridge. He was appointed an aide de camp to General Sir Arthur Currie, commander of the Canadian Corps and remained with the Canadian Forces until demobilization in 1919 when he joined the CNR as a general solicitor becoming commission counsel in 1923. In 1929 he was appointed assistant general counsel and in 1932 was made vice president of the traffic department, a post he held until his retirement in 1951. He was appointed lieutenant governor the following year. A son, Alistair, is executive assistant to State Secretary J. W. Pickersgill. Other survivors are his wife, the former Jane Graeme Ross of Moose Jaw, Sask., whom he married in 1929 and two other sons, Ian in Montreal and Duncan in Brockville, Ont. Funeral arrangements have not been announced. Last October Mr. Fraser was awarded a total of $560,000 by the Supreme Court of Canada for rock used from his property to build the Canso Causeway - a mile long link between Cape Breton Island and mainland Nova Scotia. Originally the federal government had decided to pay Mr. Fraser $5,500 for 10,000,000 tons of granite taken from Porcupine Mountain, and used in the construction of the causeway. Porcuoine Mountain, a 600 foot cliff towering over the Strait of Canso, had been the Fraser family since 1885. Mr. Fraser took his case to the Exchequer Court of Canada seeking $1,000,000 from the federal government for the rock used in the causeway. The exchequer court awarded the former lieutenant governor a total of $62,500. The Supreme Court decision last October gave Mr. Fraser $560,000 and rejected a cross appeal by the Crown to have the exchequer award reduced to about $80,000. (Ed.--no date) [Comment from Donald A.

Fraser George Fraser CBP 7/21/2011
Leaving home at the age of 14 with only enough money to get to Toronto he joined the merchant ships sailing the great lakes. Saving his money he bought his own truck to haul wood and rock at 16, and began a trucking business. He explained that was one of his prouder moments to own his own business. Moving on quickly he joined the Royal Canadian Navy and began a career as a seamen rising to the rank of Lieutenant Commander in a 28 year career with his wife Carmen by his side. Twenty eight moves in twenty eight years. Retiring from the military still a young man, George quickly was employed again. This time in his second love, the sports industry. Landing a job with the Canadian Games, as the managing director. Traveling from Vancouver to New Brunswick to carry out his role. Living in New Brunswick landed George a job in the trucking industry with Brookville transport, as their director of safety. Something that George seemed to have a great passion for! Safety and trucks. This new job made George a shoe in for the insurance industry and soon he was working for Boreal insurance as their loss prevention manager for the trucking end of things. Forced to retire at 65 he decided to go on alone and started FCA (Fraser Consulting Agency). He became a leader in the trucking industry for loss prevention and trucking safety. Working closely with quite a few trucking companies George began to work solely for Sharp Transportation and their owner and close friend, Shawn Baird. Able to work from home George was able to research and write many books on family history, his love for family and his roots. Also writing a book on Alder Point, N.S. Cape Breton Island his first love, and where he longed to be. As if he were not busy enough, he started and maintained a blog called Cape Breton news which gave everyone a chance to stay in touch with what was going on back home. He was a very busy man right up till the very end. I'm sure wherever he may be now, he is having a cup of boiled tea and lobster tail. Predeceased by mother, Viola; father, Simon. Survived by his wife of 56 years, Carmen (Mcneil) Fraser; sisters, Shirley Cahill, Mina MacLennan, Judy Macready, Ginny Laffin, Marilyn Broderick, Eleanor Shaw; brothers, Simon and Derrick; many nieces and nephews.

Fraser Hector Fraser Presbyterian Witness 12/8/1902 R. Fraser In our obituary column today we record the death of Mr. Hector Fraser, of Big Bras d’Or, Boularderie, who entered the rest of the endless Sabbath last Sunday evening. It was the closing of a long life, but no one thought of the late Mr. Fraser as old. They who knew him best could not realize that he was away past the four score years. Straight as a rush, light of step, bright of eye, cheerful in manner, always the picture of health, the signs of life’s winter-time only somewhat paling locks that so long retained the complexion of the raven, this veteran against the ravages of time never seemed to grow old. Mr. Hector Fraser was born at Abercrombie Point, Pictou County, in July 1818, the youngest of the seven children of Philip Fraser, who soon afterwards with his family, moved to Boularderie. As the years went by one after another six of the seven moved into homes of their own on the shores of the Big Bras d’Or; John, at Kempt Head; Margaret (Mrs. George McKenzie) at Rocky Side, now New Harris, Thomas and Roderick at Ross’s Ferry; Jessie (Mrs. Donald McLeod) and Hector at Big Bras d’Or. The story of Alexander, poor boy, who was next older than Jessie, is one of the saddest connected with the times of drift - ice, - the saddest of such on the Big Bras d’Or, carried as he was seawards by the dread current, even talked to by men on the shore at Cary’s beach. Out and out he was borne until appearing to those who beheld, as only a lonely dot on the white expanse, and at last lost to view amidst the dismal night shadows. Rory of Ross’s Ferry, was also the prey of the treacherous Big Bras d’Or, but, swallowed by its hungry waters, saved such agonizing experience as that which tortured his younger brother. Mrs. MacLeod, now past ninety, is the only one living of the old Philip Fraser family. In the year 1849 Hector Fraser claimed the Scottish lassie, Mary McGregor, as his bride, and through fifty-seven years she continued to be the delight of his eyes, his faithful wife. Four children came to the home to claim the Fraser name. Christina, Alexander, Philip, and John. Alexander occupies the old homestead. Philip is in Alaska, and the Rev. John Fraser is the much esteemed clergyman of Loch Lomond. The late Mr. Fraser was one of the kind of men that community or church cannot but miss and mourn. He was always more than ready to help those in trouble or need. He was in the estimation of all who knew him, a proper inheritor of the well done of the Great Helper. Not of many words he was mighty in deeds. The Boularderie congregation has no more faithful member, and not one who has been so regularly at its services during the last three quarters of a century. Only the last Sunday but one before the day of his death he was in his accustomed place in the sanctuary and apparently in usual good health. His funeral last Tuesday was very largely attended. Boularderie from end to end was represented. The funeral service was held in St. James Church, Big Bras d’Or, conducted by Rev. John MacIntosh, assisted by Rev. Dr. Jack, of North Sydney.

Fraser John Fraser Sydney Daily Post 7/26/1904 R. Fraser DROWNED WHILE BATHING A man named John Fraser, a native of Scotland, accompanied by three friends went out on Big Pond, Sydney Mines, yesterday afternoon, and after rowing about for some time, Fraser taking one oar with him, stripped and went in for a bath. He swam a piece from the boat and shortly after his companions noticed that he was in distress but could not move very fast with only one oar. Before they could reach the spot where he had sunk, he had disappeared for the last time.

Fraser John Fraser Sydney Daily Post 9/25/1952 R. Fraser BODY OF JOHN FRASER RECOVERED Bras d’Or, Sept. 25 - The waters of Bras d’Or Gut today yielded up the body of John Carl Fraser, thus bringing an end to the week long search for the youthful victim of a drowning accident here on last Thursday. The five year old boy lost his life on that day when he slipped underneath a wooden railing at one end of the Bras d’Or bridge, went down a 10 foot embankment and into the strong, swirling tide of the waters flowing beneath the bridge. Since that time, dragging operations had been carried out, with a record number of volunteers taking part, but no trace of the body of the victim was found until it was seen floating on the surface at a point near the Toronto Mine, of the Bras d’Or coal company, about one half mile from the spot where the accident took place. The body was spotted by two employees at that mine, Wallie Day and Jack King, who brought it to shore and immediately notified the Northside detachment of the R. C. M. P. at North Sydney, and Constable M. D. MacKay, who had played a prominent part in the operations carried out during the week, went to the scene and after he had notified Coroner Kenneth Fraser, Sydney Mines, the body was removed to the George R. Francis Funeral Parlor, Sydney Mines. Coroner Fraser announced during the day that no inquest would be necessary in connection with the fatality. Dragging operations had been carried on since the day the youth was drowned, with the large number of persons to take part in such work in theis district being present when the entire area was scouted in a full effort to locate the body. Operations wee directed by officers of the Northside Detachment of R.C.M. Police, with a boat, the “Brule”, Capt. C. Ryan, from the Marine Division of the force being on the scene for some time. the work was furthered by the presence of a diver, Austin Bennett, of the staff of the North Sydney Marine Railway, who was on duty throughout the day, and again on Monday. The work of police officer and all volunteers who played any part in the operations carried out in the search for the body was greatly appreciated by the parents of the young victim, Mr. and Mrs. Mor Fraser, well known local residents. In addition to his parents, the victim is survived by three brothers, Ronald, Gregory and Eric. The funeral is scheduled to take place Friday, with interment St. Joseph’s parish cemetery.

Fraser Kenneth MacLean Fraser Sydney Post Record p 3 8/15/1955 R. Fraser BURNS CLAIM LIFE OF BOY Ross Ferry - Six year old Kenneth MacLean Fraser of this Boularderie Island community passed away in Harbour View Hospital, Sydney Mines, on Thursday evening as a result of burns he suffered in an accident on Aug. 15, and news of his death will be learned with deep and profound regret by the many friends of his parents in Victoria County and elsewhere. The accident victim, who was very badly burned in the accident which was to claim his life, never regained consciousness from the time of the accident and although about ten days ago a slight improvement was reported in his condition - although it was still serious - he lost his fight for life and passed away despite all that could be done for him. Coroner Kenneth Fraser, Sydney Mines, announced that no inquest would be held into the boy’s death. He was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Alexander D. Fraser, who are well known throughout this district and elsewhere. His father operates a farm here. The youthful victim suffered his burns when he, reportedly dipped a lighted “cat tail” in a can of gasoline, in a building on the property of his father’s farm. Given first aid, he was rushed to hospital at Sydney Mines and treated there since that time by Dr. Kenneth Fraser, of that town. He was born in Hamilton Memorial Hospital, North Sydney and was a student last year at the local school. In addition to his parents, the victim is survived by one sister Isabelle, and three brothers, David, Roy and Harold, all at home. The remains are now resting at the home from where the funeral will take place Sunday afternoon, September 4. Services at the home at 1:30 p.m. and at Knox Presbyterian Church, here at 2:00 p.m. Interment will be made in Man - O - War Point Cemetery under the direction of the Charles E. Fillmore Funeral Home of Sydney Mines. The bereaved family have the sympathy of many friends. [Kenneth MacLean Fraser 1949- 1955 Man O War Point]

Mary (Betty) Fraser - Mary (Betty) Fraser passed away peacefully at Elginwood Nursing Home in Toronto on Sunday, May 18, 2008, in her 89th year. Betty was predeceased by her husband, Larder Fraser, a well known Cape Breton municipal councillor, in 1973. She was the beloved and loving mother of Elaine and Ross, and she used all her formidable strength and wit to establish them in life and then, in retirement, inspire them with her diverse cultural interests, her financial management skills and, in recent times, her tenacity in the face of chronic pain. She learned to speak French as a retirement project, painted poignant watercolours of children and 'old faces,' as she called her portraits of older people, and bottled classic preserves such as her famous corn relish. Earlier, as a school teacher, she inspired a generation of students at Riverview Rural High School where she taught for nearly 20 years. She had the talent of being the firm, no-nonsense teacher who truly cared, and students became devoted to her. Before retiring, she completed her university degree by taking classes part time at the University College of Cape Breton. At her request, Betty will be buried in Cape Breton next to her beloved husband, Larder. A funeral service will be held in Betty's home town of Sydney at S.W.

James Fraser, and a sister of Senator W. Ross, who died at North Sydney on the 2nd inst. Mrs. Fraser lived a long and useful life. She was the earnest and efficient co-worker, in all things pertaining to the maintaining and promoting of Christ’s kingdom on earth, and after the death of her noble husband, and she had ceased to be actively engaged in public Christian work her sincere humble and pleasant Christian character was a help and inspiration to all with whom she came into contact. The remains were brought from North Sydney to Boularderie by boat and impressive services conducted in the church there, after which all that was mortal of Mrs. Fraser was laid to rest by the side of her husband in the cemetery of Man O War Point. So ended the earthly life of one of whom it can be truly said, She hath done what she could. Victoria News, Aug 17, 1910 The only newspaper printed in Victoria County.

Fraser Rhodena Mary (Rockwell) Fraser, RN CBP 4/30/2012
In acknowledgement of a wonderful full life, it is with profound sadness that we, Rhoda’s family, announce the death of our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, cousin and good friend at home, surrounded by her devoted family on Friday, April 27, 2012. Born in Glace Bay, Aug. 3, 1917, she died as she lived, with dignity and grace. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Allister, for whom she dedicated personal care for 21 years following his stroke until she was 90. She was also predeceased by her parents, Ernest and Rhodena (Nicholson) Rockwell, brothers, Kenneth, Donald and Neil, sisters, Katie and Bertha (Welch), and five siblings who died in early childhood. Her kindness, understanding and unconditional love will forever be missed by her children, son David (Debbie), Baddeck, and daughter Anne, Halifax; granddaughter Heather Urquhart (Ian MacNeil); stepgrandson Ryan; her pride and joy — great-grandchildren Matthew and Kate; step-great-granddaughter Jesslynn; several nieces and nephews, in particular, nephew Brian Mason and his wife Joyce, Baddeck, who called daily and were a constant source of love, support and friendship; several great nieces, nephews and other cousins, particularly the Middle River and Margaree relatives who held a special place in her heart. Rhoda lived a life of unwavering faith and we have been blessed as a family to have had her special presence for these many years. Rhoda grew up in New Waterford, became a registered nurse in 1940 after attending the Glace Bay General Hospital. Following graduation, she worked at the Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal, where she also became an X-ray technician. She returned to Cape Breton to care for her ill mother; later working as a public health nurse in Sydney and throughout Cape Breton. She met Allister whom she married while living in Sydney, then moved to Baddeck where they built a home in which they lived happily for 60+ years until their deaths. Rhoda was kind, generous, and conscientious, but family came first. She was always there to provide guidance, support and a loving hand, but Rhoda also loved every moment of her nursing career, including the Victoria County Memorial Hospital, Baddeck, where she worked for 25 years. She was an intelligent, kind, dedicated, and compassionate registered nurse who provided comfort and peace to those for whom she provided care. She always demonstrated respect and a generosity of spirit whether she was at work or otherwise. She continued her interest in and passion for nursing for many years past retirement by regularly reading many healthcare journals/newsletters. We will always cherish her wisdom and insights, her good common sense, her laughter, sense of wit and most of all, her dedication to her family. She taught us to appreciate all mankind and treat others as we ourselves would like to be treated. She had a strong faith and was initially a member of Calvin United Church, New Waterford, and later a devoted member of Greenwood United Church and a lifetime member of the United Church Women. She was also a former member of the Order of Eastern Star. Thank you to the staff at Victoria County Memorial Hospital and Drs. C. Chow, J. Ritter, D. Heughan and especially Dr. R. Genge. We would also like to acknowledge the support and kindness of the staff with Home Care and Home Support Nova Scotia and to Shawn and David Dunlop, MacAskill’s Funeral Home. The funeral will be held 2 p.m., Tuesday, May 1, 2012, at Greenwood United Church with Rev. Alison Etter presiding. In accordance with Rhoda’s wishes, there will be no visitation; however, a reception will be held following the funeral service at Greenwood United Church Memorial Hall. Burial will take place at the Middle River Cemetery following the reception. Family flowers only by request.

Fraser Vivian Gertrude Fraser  CBP 9/20/2010
It is with great sadness that we, the family, announce the peaceful passing of Vivian Gertrude Fraser of Westmount on Saturday, Sept. 18, 2010. Born in Edwardsville, Oct. 22, 1921, she moved to Westmount in 1922 with her parents, Ernest and Mary (MacKenzie) Fraser. Besides her parents, Vivian was predeceased by her brother, Osborne MacKenzie Fraser. She is survived by four nieces and four nephews. Vivian never married, she devoted her life to her family. First her parents who were of ill health, then to her nieces and nephews and their  families, all of whom considered her not just an aunt or a great aunt, but a second mother, and grandmother, but mostly a good friend. Vivian loved the sea and along with her cousin they would take the ferry to Newfoundland as often as they could, just to be on the water. In her younger years, Vivian loved to swim. As kids  we would sit in wonder on the shore and watched her swim back and forth across Sydney Harbour. Her greatest hobby was gardening, even after she lost her sight she would help in the  garden, although she would pull more flowers than weeds. Her only complaint over the past few years was that she was not able to take her walks through Petersfield, a place she adored. Her  nightly calls to family and many friends will truly be missed. As requested by Vivian, there will be no visitation. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 22 in the flower garden of her family home, 99 Glencairn Ave., Westmount. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a charity of one's choice.   8/18/2010 Edwardsville, Nova Scotia, Canada

Fuller Judith Rivinus Fuller Cape Breton Post 4/23/2008
Judith Rivinus Fuller July 2, 1946-April 19, 2008 - On a bright sunny afternoon, April 19, 2008, Judith Rivinus Fuller died peacefully at home in the embrace of family and friends. Her wishes were to spend her final days in full view of her gardens and the blue waters of the Bras d'Or Lakes. On April 17, 2008, being of sound and a most determined mind she resolutely marched outside to sit and bask in the bright warming sunlight to reaffirm the "renewal of life" as her early spring flowers commenced to bloom. Her extensive gardens gave deep meaning and enduring sustenance to her spiritual life as well as a release from the mundane affairs of every day life. Judith was born July 2, 1946, in Boston, Mass. She grew up in Philadelphia with her parents and six siblings. She attended the Springside School in Chestnut Hill, Pa. She graduated from Milton Academy in Milton, Mass. in 1964. She graduated from Boston's Children's Hospital Nursing School in 1967. After her graduation she nursed in Boston to get her nursing feet wet. In 1968 she picked up and drove across the United States to San Francisco where she worked for over a year at the Haight Ashbury Clinic that provided medical care to the growing counter-culture in America. She also worked at the University of California's San Francisco neonatal ICU. In the fall of 1969 she again crossed the USA to nurse in Boston and to be closer to family and friends. In September 1970 she married Henry Weld Fuller in Philadelphia. The wedding took place in her parents' back yard. This was the beginning of a 38-year marriage of which the last 35 years were spent in Big Harbor overlooking the waters of the Bras d'Or Lakes. The years 1970-1973 were spent in England and Newfoundland. Judith worked at a hospital in Clapham Common, London UK (1970-71) and at the Janeway Children's Hospital (1971-73) in St. John's, N.L. In June of 1973 Judith gave birth to Susanna Drake Fuller in St. John's, N.L. Six weeks later a big move was made to Cape Breton to a 100-year old subsistenc farm property. This was the beginning of a life she had not planned! In 1975 Michael Rivinus Fuller was born in Sydney, N.S. She now had a 'Newfie' and Cape Bretoner in her fold. What more could you ask for! In 1979 Judith decided that she needed to embellish her nursing education. She moved to Halifax to attend Dalhousie University. She completed a BN in 1981 and then her MN in 1983. Her MSN thesis was on affective maternal child bonding. She then taught nursing at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, N.S. from 1984 through 1989. Her mentor there was Ria Rovers who died in a tragic accident in Mexico in 1988. In 1989 Judy returned to Baddeck where she was the driving force in creating the Victoria County Hospice Society. She was the energy for gathering the funds to start a local hospice care center. She served as the Victoria County Hospice Director from 1989 through 2001. From 2001 until September 2007 she was Baddeck's Continuing Care Co-ordinator for deserving clients. Both jobs provided her with an office in the Victoria County Hospital. Her work in hospice and continuing care has made a huge impact on the lives of those she cared for and worked among. She will not be forgotten. Nor will she forget those she helped. Outside her professional career she involved herself fully in the local community. She acted with the St. Ann’s Bay Players. She provided advice on the 'art' of her gardening to others. She was always there for her friends with timely consultations and care. She was full of energy and vitality that infected all who knew her. She gardened, made quilts and was a weaver. She was an inspirational force behind the 'Rolling Crones', a disparate group of lady bicyclers. We can unreservedly say that she was, indeed, larger than life itself just through her pure force of character. Judith leaves behind her mother, Ann Rivinus; two brothers, Timothy and Mark; and three sisters, Sally, Susy and Mary and their respective spouses. Her father, Francis Markoe Rivinus died in 2006. Judith was on hand to care for her father when he decided to take leave of his life. She was predeceased by a third brother, Michael in 1973. She has a large extended family of cousins who are hugely fond of her. Judith is also survived by her mother-in-law, Marion Fuller Brown of York, Me.; and three sisters-in-law, Alexandra, Martha and Emily and their spouses, Jock, Geoff and David. On both sides of the family there are numerous spouses of siblings, nieces and nephews who will continue to bask in the joy that Judy created. All reside in the United States. She leaves behind her husband Henry Weld Fuller and her two children, Susanna and Michael. Both children reside in Halifax. She will be deeply missed by them as she provided the stability and nurturing that allowed their family life to flourish far from extended kin. There is indeed an insurmountable abyss to be filled, but we know that life must go on. Judith will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She made a real difference not just in her professional life, but in the lives of her wide range of diverse friends and extended family. We have witnessed testimony to this by the recent kindnesses extended by all those that loved her. Because of the distances involved and the time parameters, a celebration of Judy's life will not take place until a specified time in the summer of 2008. Judy did not want a funeral. She wanted a celebration of her life. She wants people to smile and show a joyous countenance. She worked very hard over the last 12 months to become a 'Triumphant Patient'. She endured her illness with a positive demeanor that rode high on 'dignity of self presentation' and a commitment to lead by example. We are all indebted to her spirit and her unique force of character that will indeed be a hard act to follow. She was triumphant right to her very last breath! In our memories she will always remain so as embodied in the quote below. 'In the pool that is encircling you now I just want to tell you something. As Judy lay dying, I closed my eyes and thought of her in all her guises I have known, from when I was tiny to last year. I prayed for you and Susanna and Michael to have the strength to bear you through whatever comes, with peace. As I opened my eyes, the sun came through a low overcast sky with summer-like heat. I heard the birds singing and the sound of children's voices and thought, 'Just as she would want it to be.' (From Genevieve Anderson, a niece) Judith requested donations made to the Victoria County Hospice Society to help carry on the good work she started. Donations in her name may be sent to: Victoria County Hospice Society, P.O. Box 279, Baddeck, N.S., Canada, B0E 1B0. 4/19/2008 born in Sydney, N.S.

Of course his favourite river was the beautiful Margaree, he enjoyed his time at the trailor and teaching people the art of fly fishing. At one time he was on the executive of the Margaree Salmon Association of which he always remained a member. He enjoyed the peace and quiet of being near the river (his meaning of heaven!).

Ferman Furey

Born: June 13th, 1965

Passed in: Glace Bay
Passed on: January 28th, 2014

Ferman James Furey, Glace Bay, passed away at the family home surrounded by his “three girls” — his Mom, Shirley, his sister, Annette and his soulmate, Andrea, on Jan. 28, 2014, at the age of 48 after a short courageous battle with cancer.
Ferman was born on June 13, 1965, son of the late Ferman Furey Sr. and Shirley (Arseneau) Furey.
He was an avid craftsman/carpenter and took great pride in everything he created. At the time of his diagnosis, he was employed at Meco Construction as a carpenter. He always enjoyed working with wood.
He was a very outgoing, dedicated, and caring guy. Ferman would do anything and everything for anyone. He wouldn’t care if he had a penny in his pocket; he would selflessly jump in and make sure things were taken care of.
He was a member of the Tower Road Volunteer Fire Department for over 20 years, and held the position of deputy fire chief at the time of his death. One of his greatest achievements was saving a man’s life from a house fire while he was off duty for which he received the Governor General of Canada’s Commendation award for bravery. His response was “It’s a little overwhelming”.
In 1998-99 he was selected Fire Fighter of the Year at Tower Road. He was a very humble and modest man. He was a jack-of-all-trades. He was their cook, DJ, bartender, sign maker, carpenter, maintenance person, tour guide, and trainer, but most importantly was the ability to save lives and be a dedicated firefighter. He was so proud to be a part of all this!
