Godwin Catherine Anne Godwin Cape Breton Post 2/1/2010
Catherine Anne Godwin, Dominion

Born in 02/10/1940 at Halifax , Nova Scotia , Canada

With deep regret, we announce that Catherine Godwin has lost her long and hard-fought battle with cancer. She passed away peacefully in the presence of family and friends on Jan. 29, 2010, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital.
Catherine was born in Halifax, N.S., Oct. 2, 1940, the daughter of the late Anne (MacKinnon) Godwin and the late John Edward Godwin.
Her early years were spent in Bedford, N.S., but after the death of her father in 1947, she and her mother relocated to Dominion.
In 1957 Catherine graduated from MacDonald High School and went on to obtain her BSc in home economics from Mount St. Vincent College, completing her dietetic internship at the Halifax Infirmary in 1962. Patients at the New Waterford Consolidated Hospital, Maple Hill Manor, Seaview Manor, and MacGillivray Guest Home received her expertise in dietary matters as well as her genuine care and concern for their general health and welfare. Catherine was a founding member of both the Cape Breton Branch and the Nova Scotia Division of the Canadian Diabetes Association. In 1981 she received the Nova Scotia Dietetics Association’s Merit Award in recognition of her contribution to the profession of dietetics.
Catherine was a person of many talents. Her skill at research and organization and her love of writing led her to compile and publish many books including a centennial history of the parish of Immaculate Conception; a 25-year history of the Cape Breton Chorale; a beautiful biography of her mother; and the genealogies of three branches of her family tree: the MacKinnons, the Browners and the Godwins.
As a faithful member of the Cape Breton Chorale, Catherine fostered her love of music and shared with all her fine alto voice while also serving as archivist for the Chorale’s 36 years of existence.
As a creative and expert needleworker, Catherine produced garments, quilts, and Celtic knots of the finest quality. Many of these were given as gifts, but others served as fundraisers for her many charities. Catherine gave freely to those who were hungry, homeless, lonely and disadvantaged and was a strong supporter of the quest for world peace.
One of Catherine’s favourite things to do was to pack a picnic lunch and, rain or shine, explore the back roads and obscure but beautiful spots of our island.
Catherine is survived by stepsister, Margaret Godwin and stepbrother, Edwin Godwin, both of Halifax; many close cousins; and a wide circle of dear friends.
Visitation will take place Monday, Feb. 1, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. in Curry’s Funeral Home, 775 Main St., Glace Bay. The funeral will be held at Immaculate Conception Church, Bridgeport, on Tuesday, Feb. 2 at 11 a.m., with Fr. Dan Boudreau and Fr. Angus J. MacLeod officiating. Reception to follow in the parish hall.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be given to Palliative Care or the Cancer Treatment Center.
Catherine will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Passed on: December 3rd, 2013
Hyman Solomon Goldberg, 82, passed away at Parkstone Enhanced Care nursing home in Halifax on
Tuesday, December 3, 2013, with his family by his side.
'Hymie', known by his friends, was born in Seattle, Washington, and raised in Saint John, N.B. He spent his
working life in Sydney, N.S., where he raised his family.
He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Dalhousie University in 1953. Upon graduation, he
went to work for his father in Glace Bay to help run a scrapyard business known as, Metal Processors
Limited. He went back to university as a mature student, where he completed his Bachelor and Masters
degrees in Education from Acadia and St. F.X. universities. In 1969, he joined the Nova Scotia Eastern
Institute of Technology as an instructor and retired at the University College of Cape Breton (UCCB) in
1994.
During his tenure at UCCB, he served as Director of the Performing Arts Series. In this role, he was
responsible for attracting such world-renowned musicians as, classical guitarists, Liona Boyd and Michael
Laucke, jazz legend, Oliver Jones and harpist, Loreena McKennitt. In 1977, he wrote and produced a
documentary on Maritime Jewry that aired on CBC Radio. The documentary spoke to the challenges of
growing up Jewish in small communities and the many challenges Jews faced when first arriving in the
Maritimes from Eastern Europe. It featured the choir from Sydney’s Temple Sons of Israel Synagogue, as
well as several interviews with Jewish youth and seniors from communities throughout Nova Scotia and
New Brunswick.
In the mid 1980s, he and his wife, Rosalyn owned and operated a plant and gift boutique in Sydney. Upon
retirement, he became heavily involved in the Sydney synagogue, The Temple Sons of Israel. With his
lovely voice, he served as the local cantor, performing the Friday night and Saturday morning services. He
also took art lessons in retirement and became an accomplished oil painter of seascapes.He was a huge fan
of music, particularly the big band jazz era of the 1940s and the singer-songwriter era of the 1960s and
70s.
Hymie was a loving and devoted husband and father. He cherished his wife, Rosalyn. He was heavily
involved in his children’s lives. He rarely missed a hockey game, a dance recital or dinner theatre production
where his kids participated. He had a special place in his heart for his only grandchild, Sarah.

Bedford, Massachusetts; brother-in-law, Lionel (Linda) Hirsch, Sydney; daughters, Lisa Goldberg, Halifax,
and Rinah Goldberg (Chris Richards), Calgary; son, Lyle Goldberg (Della Morrison), Halifax; and

Ruth (Schwartz) Goldbloom

Born In: New Waterford, Nova Scotia, Canada
Born: December 5th, 1923

Passed in: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed on: August 29th, 2012

She was born Ruth Miriam Schwartz to the late Abraham and Rose
Schwartz, in New Waterford, N.S.
She was predeceased by her siblings, Edna, Joseph (Cozette), Irving
(Diana) and Bram (Inez) and survived by her brother, Harold (Diane).
After the sudden and early death of her father, she and her siblings
were raised by their loving and strong mother, who remained a source
of inspiration to Ruth until Rose's death in 1993.
She is also survived by her devoted husband, Richard Goldbloom; her
children, Alan (Lynn), Barbara (Tony Hughes) and David (Nancy
Epstein); as well as her grandchildren, Michael, Kate (Michael
Bozek), Ellen (Joshua Kardish), Amy, Stephen, Daniel and Will. She
also leaves four great-grandsons, Sam, Ben, Parker and Jack; and many
nieces and nephews.
Raised in her beloved Cape Breton, where she first displayed her
lifelong tap dancing virtuosity, she completed her education at Mount
Allison University and then McGill University with a degree in
physical education.
She then married the love of her life, Dick, and they began a journey
of 66 years of unmitigated happiness. She started her family and her
lifelong commitment to voluntarism in Montreal, campaigning for
numerous causes.
In 1967, they moved to Halifax, N.S., and began the next chapter of
their lives. In health care, education and Jewish charities, she
became a tireless fundraiser, advocate and leader. She was the first
woman to chair the United Way campaign for Halifax. But her belief in
tolerance and diversity also led her to become the first Jewish chair
of the board of Mount Saint Vincent University, a Catholic women's
institution.
Her gratitude for the wonderful life Canada offered to her immigrant
parents led to her engagement with the creation of Pier 21, now a
national museum to honour all immigrants to Canada. Her energy,
determination and leadership led to the successful completion of a
campaign to fund the opening of the museum.
She served numerous organizations, including as a public director of
the Investment Dealers Association of Canada and the Royal College of
Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. She was a proud and active member
of the Liberal Party of Canada throughout her life.
She was recognized with many honours, including appointment as an
Officer of the Order of Canada and recipient of the Order of Nova
Scotia. She was awarded honourary degrees from McGill University,
Dalhousie University, Mount Allison University, Mount Saint Vincent
University, Acadia University, Nova Scotia College of Art and Design
and Nova Scotia Community College. The Women's Exchange Network
designated her one of the 100 Most Powerful Women in Canada. Other
honours included the Human Relations Award from the Canadian Council
of Christians and Jews, the Maclean's Magazine Honour Roll and the
Canadian Red Cross Humanitarian Award. In 2012, she was honoured for
her work in advocacy by the Canadian Civil Liberties Association and
also received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.
Beyond her formal public recognition, she was known as a woman of
limitless energy and enthusiasm, as ready to put on her tap shoes at
age 88 as she was when she was six
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0ZDeCsobxc). She brightened the
lives of everyone who came into contact with her and often found
herself surrounded by younger people who felt her zest, curiosity and
compassion. She was a magnetic force to whom people were inexorably
drawn - especially children, who she engaged instantly. She took
immense pride in her own children, grandchildren and
great-grandchildren, always goading them to take advantage of the
"once in a lifetime opportunity" that she always saw coming their
way. But she was equally devoted to multiple generations of friends
in Halifax, Second Peninsula, Montreal, Cape Breton, and points
beyond. She was the ultimate saleswoman for causes in which she
believed, determined and hard-working, rarely ill because she felt
she didn't have time for it.
Funeral services will be held Friday, Aug. 31 at 2 p.m. at The Cunard
Centre, 961 Marginal Rd., Halifax, with a reception to follow at the
Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21,1055 Marginal Rd. Interment
and shiva will be private for family only.
In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory can be made to the Pier
21 Ruth Goldbloom Educational Bursary Fund
(http://www.pier21.ca/ruth-goldbloom-educational-bursary-fund) or to
the charity of your choice.
Special thanks for the wonderful care of Dr. Jeff Dempster, Dr. Tracy
Scott, Dr. Vicky Mitchell, Dr. Drew Bethune, Dr. Helmut Hollenhorst,
the VON Lunenburg County staff and the Heart to Heart in Home Care
agency in Chester Basin.

GOUTHRO, 65, RUN OVER BY FULL TRIP Victim believed to have fallen across tracks in effort to get out of way of full trip. Glace Bay, Aug. 12 John W. Gouthro, 65 year old Dominion resident and employee of No. 1-B Colliery, was instantly killed about 11 o'clock this morning when he was run over by several loaded boxes of a full trip near the mine bottom. Death of Gouthro today marked the second fatal accident to occur in No. 1-B Colliery this year. On March 2, J. Charles Finlayson, 27, was killed. Gouthro was employed as a shiftman in the colliery and this morning was engaged in cleaning off the road near the " bottom " over which the full trips are brought out to the coal cage for hoisting to the surface. The trips are brought out by an electric motor, which breaks away from the trip before reaching the scene of the mishap. The boxes are then pushed into the vicinity of the coal cage by a grab. Gouthro is believed to have heard the trip coming towards him and in endeavoring to get out of the way tripped and fell across the tracks. Before he could remove himself the first box passed over him and it was not until two or three others had gone over his body that his plight was noticed. When fellow workers arrived on the scene they discovered that the victim had been critically injured and was near death. He died before medical assistance reached him. Gouthro was a native of Frenchvale but had resided in Dominion practically all his life. He was widely known in the colliery communities and was generally regarded as a careful and cautious worker. During his residence in Dominion he was prominent in town affairs and enjoyed the respect and esteem of the entire community.

Today we the family, with heavy hearts, announce the passing of the heart and strength of our family, as our precious mom, Theresa Gouthro, was called home. Born in Sydney Mines, she was a daughter of the late Hugh and Annie Francis (Weir) MacLean. Mom loved her family dearly and she was the center of our world. She always had a smile on her face and a laugh that seemed to come from her toes. Her home was her castle and she was always rearranging or renovating it, while constantly striving to have it spotless. To her family and friends, entering Theresa’s home meant happiness and comfort, especially during the summer, when her home became a swinging door of nearby and out of town friends and family, who were always welcomed with a cup of tea, tea biscuit and a home cooked meal. Our family has been left devastated and heart broken. We take some comfort in knowing she has gone into the waiting arms of family and friends in heaven and that we will all meet again one day. We will cherish our many wonderful memories of our mom. She will never really leave us but reside in our hearts everyday.

Gouthro Victor Gouthro Sydney Post-Record 3/6/1939 Bruce Gouthro Former Chief of Police in Dominion Dies Victor Gouthro, 64, Passes, After Brief Illness;Chief for 25 Years Dominion, March 5-Universal sorrow was expressed on all sides as the news spread that Victor Gouthro, for over a quarter of a century chief of plice of this town, had died last night at his home, following an illness of only a few days. 30 Years Residence Six feet two inches tall and weighing over three hundred pounds, he was known by all as "Big Victor" during his almost 30 years residence in this town, and of him it can be truly said he did not leave an enemy behind him. A wonderfully powerful man he was withal kindly and friendly to all, and to none more so than the little children of the community. Born at Frenchvale 64 years ago, he worked for some years as a miner at Reserve Mines, later coming here and taking employment in No. 1-A where he worked for some time. When the town was incorporated, and Norman McDonald was Chief of Police, Victor Gouthro was named deputy and sometime afterwards when McDonald resigned, was named Chief, a position he filled with general satisfaction until he resigned a year ago. During the 25 years he was Chief of Police, the late Mr. Gouthro was also on several occasions, liquor inspector for the town. After resigning as chief of police, he was appointed tax collector for the town and held this position up to the time of his death. The late Mr. Gouthro, although not enjoying the best of health the past several months, was able to be out around, only being confined to his bed the past week. A heart ailment was believed to have caused his death. One-Man Force: He began his police duty in a period when the law of might prevailed to a large extent, and when law and order was not observed in the mining communities as today, and many are the stories told of the strength and prowess of the big Frenchman, where he was a one-man police force and some "hard" men visited the town and failed to observe the town laws. "Big Victor" was known to all citizens and his death is mourned by every person of the community. He is survived by his wife, a son Simon and three step-children, Roddie McNeil, Mrs. Sadie Mally, and Mrs. Albert Daye, all residing in Dominion. Two sisters and three brothers also survive. Funeral arrangements have not been completed but it is likely the funeral will be held Tuesday to Immaculate Conception Church, with interment following in the Ocean Avenue Catholic Cemetery.

God saw you getting tired,
When a cure was not to be,
He closed his arms around you,
And whispered, "Come to Me".
In tears we saw you sinking,
We watched you fade away,
Our hearts were almost broken,
You fought so hard to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping,
So peacefully free from pain,
We could not wish you back,
To suffer so again,
So keep your arms around her Lord,
And give her special care,
Make up for all she suffered,
And all that seemed unfair.

Grant Frank Walker Grant CBP 6/14/2011
Frank Walker Grant passed peacefully in the DVA unit at Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital, Middleton, on Monday, June 6, 2011, with two of his sisters present. Frank was born in Dominion, Cape Breton, on Feb. 28, 1920, to the late John Edward and Annabel (Johnston) Grant. His early education was obtained in Dominion with further training and diploma obtained through Red River College, Winnipeg, Man. Frank was a veteran of the Second World War, working in the Signal Service as a wireless radio operator. Frank was awarded the Canadian Volunteer Service Medal with clasp, the Defence Medal and the War Medal. Following his war service, Frank worked the remainder of his career as a wireless radio operator. He worked in the Canadian far North on the DEW line, on research ships (the Baffin and the Vema and others). As well he was employed in the oil exploration industry on ocean going research and drill ships and fixed drill platforms. He loved to travel and went all over the world with his work and in leisure times as well. Frank owned and operated a courier service in Dartmouth serving the metro area.

While living in Halifax, Frank was a very frequent visitor at the Halifax Library as he was a voracious reader. He could also be seen all over the city as he walked everywhere both as a means of transportation and for his health.

Although he moved from his birthplace of Cape Breton, he returned for visits many times and always was eager to hear of news of his hometown, Dominion.

Grant Thomas D. Grant Sydney Post Record p 8 1/19/1945 R. Fraser THOMAS D. GRANT North Sydney, Jan. 18 - Early Friday morning, Jan. 12 a widely known and highly respected citizen, Thomas D. Grant, 78, passed away at his residence on Parnell street. Although ailing for some time, and with little hope entertained for his recovery, his sudden passing was a great shock to his family and large circle of friends. With the exception of a few years in the United States, the late Mr. Grant lived his life in the town of North Sydney, where he was well and favorably known. He was a jeweller and an optician, first in business for himself, and later with the late A. M. Ross, jeweller, with whom he served for upwards of forty years, and on the death of Mr. Ross purchased the business and conducted it as Grant’s Jewellery, still a going concern under the management of his son Duncan. Fraternally, the late Mr. Grant was an Orangeman and a Mason. He was for a number of years a devout and active elder in St. Matthew’s Presbyterian Church, till 1925, when with equal zeal he continued in the same office with St. Giles Presbyterian Church, until he was called to his eternal reward. The late Mr. Grant was a close student of the Bible, and noted for his unflinching fidelity to its great doctrines. While a valued member in church courts, it was in the Sunday - school class and in personal work that he excelled. He made extensive and effective use of the blackboard in presenting apt illustrations, and never failed to sent home convincingly, that “to get Eternal Life ye must be born again.” The soothsayer variety of teachers might think Mr. Grant was putting things bluntly. However, while these would be gracefully angling, Mr. Grant would be shooting arrows of conviction that brought results. Mr. Grant was for a number of years Superintendent of the Chalmers Jack Mission Sunday School and took part in the gospel service there, as well as in th ministry of visitations. The largely attended funeral service in church Sunday afternoon, conducted by his pastor, Rev. H. L. Jost, and the members of the Masonic Order, testified in no uncertain terms to the warm esteem in which the departed was held by his congregation and his native town.

infant daughter, Janet and her brother, Steve.
Nan's door was always open, the teapot always brewing. Pies and
homemade bread could be smelled throughout the neighbourhood.
Mealtime was her happiest time of the day, the men always her top
priority. She loved her house filled with company from near and far,
friends and family where she could quietly listen to conversation,
laughter and accomplishments. Her family always had her unconditional
love and support.
Her dream to travel to Nashville and to see the Grand Ole Opry became
a reality in recent years and was one of the biggest highlights of
her life.
Visitation will be held Thursday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. in V.J.

She is survived by her husband of 53 years, Paul; sons, David (Pat Hanson), River Ryan, Rob (Roxanne), Wicklow, Ont., Paul Joe (Charmaine, Nathan and Alexander Hogan), New Waterford; daughters, Isabel (Hans Zimmermann), Calgary, Pattie-Anne (Doug MacLeod), River Ryan, Irene (Stephen Read), Marion Bridge, Teresa (Patrick MacLeod), New Waterford, Marguerite (Lawrence Peckham), Hubley, N.S.; grandchildren, Stephen, Krystle, April, Robert, Jennifer, Danielle, Michael, Kristen, Bradley, Paul, Daniel, Nelson and Dawson; step-grandchildren Tara, Marc, Alison, Corey, Michael; great-grandchildren, Alexis, Jackson, Hailey, Kaylee, Cameron, Madison, Nevaeh, Ryane, Leland, Miley; brothers Rob(Nicki), Bernard (Madge), Anthony (Pat); sisters, Bernadine (Gerry), Carm (Bob); dear friends, Rose (Torchy) Miles and family, Florence MacPherson, Phil Henessey.Pat was predeceased by sisters, Caroline, Teresa, Maime and brothers, Jay, Johnny, Earl and Matt.She was a member of the former Mount Carmel parish, currently the Parish Church of St. Leonard. Pat spoke often of her days working for the nuns in New Waterford and Sydney where she cooked meals for many. Rather than prepare her for the religious life (she had planned on becoming a sister), it prepared her for cooking for the eight children she would later have. Pat left school in grade eight, but continued to educate herself about world and local events. She learned to challenge and question anything that didn’t make sense to her. This skill proved useful many times over the years in her business and volunteer work. In later years she took up correspondence studies and proudly achieved a grade 12 equivalency. She took creative writing courses and painting classes. Family and friends were the recipients of hand painted crafts and holiday cards over the years. Her children would laugh when she would sign her cards with “Mom and Dad Grezel” as if we wouldn’t know their last name! She was a community volunteer, activist and founding member of Sydney Harbour Fortifications Society which saved and restored Fort Petrie military museum in New Victoria. This became a popular tourist destination as well as an employer of many local residents over the years. Never willing to wait for someone else to do the work, she along with her husband Paul, worked tirelessly to make others aware of the important history of the New Waterford area and the potential of the community. She was humbled by an opportunity to speak at the Temple Sons of Israel Synagogue in Sydney about her work at the museum. For many years she was a stay at home mom who spent many hours sewing and baking. Pat was the mother of eight and considered a mother figure to many. Her children have particularly fond memories of the stuffed dolls and toys she used to make us as kids, and who could forget the matching green dresses the girls wore in the school’s Irish concert when we first moved to Lingan! She owned and operated River Ryan Campground for 30 years and proudly represented Nova Scotia in Tourism. A believer in justice and dignity of all, she fought hard to support those in need. She could never turn her back on the humanity of a person even when many others would. Visitation will be held Friday, Jan. 27 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 380 Smith St., New Waterford. A funeral mass of celebration for Pat will take place Saturday, Jan. 28 at 10 a.m. in the Parish Church of St. Leonard, Mount Carmel Avenue, New Waterford. Burial will be in Mount Carm 1/25/2012 New Waterford

Together we have cried an ocean of tears, As we feel so empty and hold many fears. But Grandpa would want us to know he's in a good place, And that he's watching us all with a smile on his face. As we have made him so proud, as proud as can be, That he has raised such a beautiful and special family. Thinking back now I really must say, I feel lucky and privileged to have known Grandpa to this day. For in my life, you have played a special part, The memories I will treasure and keep close to my heart. For me I am glad my children he got to meet, And for all of us, be grateful, his life is now complete. To each one of us he has loved and cared, And as a family, be thankful for the good times we shared. Although he has gone we will always be together, And his spirit will live on in each one of us forever. When you look to the sky, look for the brightest star, As that will be Grandpa looking down on us from afar. And now I would like to thank the good Lord above, For blessing us with our Grandpa, with his kindness and love. Dear God, if it is not too much fuss, Take extra special care of our Grandpa, as he is very dear to us. Grandpa, if you are listening, say a prayer for us every day, Be sure to protect us and guide us on our way. We know when God called you, you had to go, But we want you to know Grandpa, we miss you and love you so.” 5/31/2012 Edmunston, New Brunswick, Canada
