KAY HADDAD REMEMBERED AS FUN, CARING WOMAN By Laura Jean Grant, Cape Breton Post, Sydney The owner of a well-known Sydney restaurant is being remembered as a kind, generous woman who was never too busy to stop and chat with her many faithful customers. Kay Haddad - who along with her late husband Simon, owned and operated Kay's Kozy Korner, on Townsend Street, for more than 50 years died Tuesday. Her death came as a blow to many in the local community, including the restaurant's regular customers and its employees. Margie Jobe has worked at Kay's Kozy Korner for 12 years and said she'll remember Kay as a warm, caring person. "Myself and most people who knew her will remember her laugh," she said. "She was full of fun. She was a very warm person." Jobe said the restaurant has a large number of regular customers which she credits to the outgoing personalities of kay and Simon. He passed away in 1999. "Half came for the food and half came for the personalities who ran it," she said. "Kay and Simon both would go around to the tables and talk to the people." Jobe added Kay's death has had an impact on a lot of people because she was such a well known and respected member of the community. "There's a lot of people going to miss Kay. She was a good woman," said Jobe. For Sydney resident Blair Joseph, who grew up about a block away from Kay's Kozy Korner, Kay was a part of his childhood. "She was like a second mother to all the boys in the neighbourhood," he said. "Everybody always went to hang out at Kay's Kozy Korner." Joseph said it was tradition for the boys in the area to stop in at the restaurant for chips and pop on their way home from the former Sydney Forum. "It was a unique place to go. It was a nice place with a good atmosphere," he said. The fact that Kay would let boys from the neighbourhood work off the cost of their meal if they were a little short on money was another added bonus, Joseph recalled. Joseph said he has countless memories from his time spent at the restaurant including the caring and fun relationship between kay and Simon. "It's hard to mention Kay without talking about her husband, Simon," he said. Joseph recalled that Simon faithfully washed the windows of the restaurant every day and Kay would always tell him he missed a spot and he'd do it again. He said the chore was a long-running joke between the couple. He added the couple will also be remembered as generous supporters of the local community. Joseph said he'll remember Kay as a hard working and caring individual. "She was a wonderful person and raised a great family," he said. Haddad is survived by two sons, two daughters, eight grandchildren, and several siblings. Visitation for Haddad will take place today from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel. The funeral is set for 11 a.m. Saturday in St. Joseph's Church.

In 1955, Joe came to Canada to join his brother, sister and mother to start a new life in a place that would become his home. Trained as a master furniture maker in Lebanon, he built beautiful, custom furniture and cabinets for over 40 years. He owned and operated J’s Dairy on Victoria Road in Whitney Pier in the 1970s, and to this day many people refer to him simply as, J.
He was a long-standing member of St. Joseph’s Lebanese and Syrian Society, and for many years he was a regular card player at the French Club on Ferry Street in Sydney. Joe was an avid tarabish player and he never missed an opportunity to announce a 50 and bella.
As the many who sat at his table can attest, he was an amazing cook and expert wine maker, and took great care with everything he prepared. Whether he was making tabouli or kibbi, or if he was corking his latest batch of wine, for him it was a labour of love. He enjoyed his vegetable garden at home, and he took great pleasure walking up and down the aisles of the many grocery stores and wholesale food stores in the CBRM, looking for a good deal. Above all, Joe loved spending time with his family.
Joe is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Ruth (Ward) Hajjar; children, Jo-Anne Hajjar Gould (Richard), Ontario, Tony (Lorna MacNeil), Big Pond, Lourice Hajjar Jamael (Stephen), Sydney, and Elias, Alberta. Joe was the loving grandfather (Jidi) of six grandchildren, Erich, Simon, Stephen, Micheline, Axel and Noah. He is also survived by his sister, Josephine Kfoury in Lebanon, and many special nephews and nieces.
Besides his parents, Joe was predeceased by his brothers, Michael and Elias, and his sisters, Lourice Rahey, Juliette Saker, Mabel Napkie, Elizabeth Webb and Adma Abounawom.
Visitation will be held Friday, April 12, 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at Sydney Memorial Chapel, 49 Welton St., Sydney.

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Darlene Hall, age 54, on Monday, Feb. 18, 2013, at the Halifax Infirmary. She was surrounded by her loving family.
Born in Sydney Mines on April 12, 1958, she was the only daughter of John and Lorraine (Boyd) Burton.
Darlene was always proud of her work at Transition House and believed it was there that she discovered a passion for helping women, which lead her to furthering her career in social work. Darlene obtained a BACS degree from CBU in 1989, a BSW from Dalhousie in 1999 and a MSW from Dalhousie in 2002.
Her strong work ethic and continued care of women taught her daughters kindness and compassion which lead her daughter Melanie into the same profession. The last number of years Darlene has worked as a medical social worker at the Northside General Hospital and has helped countless numbers of people and families.
Darlene took great pride in providing others with love and comfort. She had a special ability to know exactly what to say in a supportive, unassuming manner. Many people relied on Darlene for guidance and support. She was well known for putting the needs of others before her own and always had a smile and a kind word for everyone.
Not only was she extremely cherished by her husband, daughters, parents and brothers, but also by her aunts Betty and Bev and sister-in-law Mary. Her family was always Darlene’s number one priority.
Darlene loved to laugh and provide comforting meals to her family. She enjoyed summer weekends in Margaree, boating on the Bras d’Or Lake and vacationing somewhere warm in the winter months. She was very happy with her life; she loved her home, enjoyed her job, and spending time with family.
She leaves behind to mourn her loving husband, Donald (Donnie) and her two daughters, Melissa and Melanie; parents, John and Lorraine Burton; and brothers, Derrick (Wendy), Vaughn, Sheldon (Betty), Blair (Georgina) and Glenn (Edna). Also left behind are her aunt, Betty Stewart (Boyd), aunt and godmother, Bev Robin (Boyd); brother-in-law, Edward (Brenda); sister-in-law, Mary; brother-in-law, Arthur; and many nieces and nephews.
Darlene was predeceased by her father and mother-in-law, Patrick and Jessie (MacDougall) Hall and special uncle, James Stewart.
Special thanks must be given to the amazing staff at CCU 6.4 and ICU 5.1, Halifax Infirmary, for their kindness and compassion. Darlene would have been very appreciative of their attentive care.
Visitation for Darlene Hall will be held in the J. M. Jobes Funeral Home, 635 Main St., Sydney Mines on Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. The funeral mass will take place on Friday at 10 a.m. in St. Pius X Church with Fr. Thomas John officiating.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Darlene’s memory may be made to the QE II Foundation, Halifax Infirmary ICU 5.1 or Cardiac Care 6.4.

EXTRA ************ Hockey legend Hanna dies Original Six standout among best Bluenosers to play game BY BRAD ROWE CAPE BRETON POST SYDNEY One of Nova Scotia's hockey legends has passed away. John 'Junior' Hanna of Sydney lost a long and courageous battle with cancer Sunday morning and with his family by his side passed away at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. He was 70. Hanna has long been considered one of the greatest hockey players to call Nova Scotia home. He was a member of a small fraternity from this province to play in the NHL during the Original Six days. "When we were kids growing up playing hockey, John was an icon to us, especially in the Lebanese community," said Blair Joseph, a longtime friend and assistant coach with the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles. "Everybodyknewhis history as far as him starting late playing hockey. He never even put on skates until he was 13 and didn'tgo away until he was 18.For him to just jump on atrain and go away to Montrealand try out for a hockey team and eventually end up playing in the BigSix was quitea thing." Hanna played three seasons of junior in theQuebec Hockey League - two withChicoutimi and one with Trois-Rivieres - before turning pro with the ProvidenceReds of the AmericanHockey League in 1957. He was just 23 yearsold when he broke in to the NHL with the NewYork Rangers in 1958. He also played with the MontrealCanadiens and PhiladelphiaFlyers during a pro playing career that spanned 17 seasons."He was a great person for the community, a great hockey man," said Joseph. "I went to visit him when he was in the hospital and one thing he said was he hoped he would feelgood enough to go to another Eagles game. Once you're a hockey person, you're always a hockeyperson. He wanted to get out and enjoy one more hockey game." Hanna turned to coaching during the 1973-74 season when he was playercoach for the Jacksonville Barons of the AHL. His pro coaching career spanned four seasons - three in the AHL and one in the SouthernHockey League. When he returned home to Cape Breton, Hanna became very active in thelocal hockey community atboth the coaching and administrative levels. He was still serving on the executive of the Nova Scotia Major Midget HockeyLeague at the time of his death. Hanna loved totalk hockey "He had a big influence on me as a coach," said Paul Coleman, a close friend of Hanna's oldest son, John Jr., and former coach of the Cape Breton midget 'AAA' team. "He gave me a piece of advice when I started coaching the midget team. He said the biggest thing is to be accountable and walk in the rink through the front door and out through the front door. That's the way he did things. He was always accountable and always straightforward with everybody. That's what he taught to his players and the people around him." Hanna's stellar hockey career earned him induction into both the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame and Cape Breton Sport Hall of Fame. "There's an old saying: if you get a lot out of the game, it's great to make sure you give something back. John Hanna was a great example of that," said Joseph. "He loved hockey and sports so much," said Coleman. "If you wanted to talk hockey, he had time for everybody. That's what he loved to do. It always brought a smile to his face and generally put a smile on the faces of the people he was speaking to." Visitation will be held in Sydney Memorial Chapel today from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. and Tuesday 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m.A mass to celebrate his life will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday at St. Joseph's Church. browe@cbpost.com

Harley David Alexander Harley CBP 11/5/2012
David Alexander Harley

Born In: New Waterford, Nova Scotia, Canada

Passed in: Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia, Canada

Some measure success in life by their working lives and careers. David's achievements will be measured by much more than that . He was an accomplished broadcaster, actor, writer, recording artist, provincial employee, tour guide, teaching assistant and well-known comedian - General John Cabot Trail . His jobs in radio allowed him to work in communities from Yarmouth to Sydney. He honed his acting skills in school concerts and university theatre. His family laughs that he is still "Waiting for Godot." He performed in and contributed material to the original "The Rise and Follies of Cape Breton."
A talented writer, David penned speeches and press releases for government officials, many radio advertising spots, text for books of photos of his beloved Cape Breton; as well as supplying jokes and ideas to other comedians and writers. He co-wrote "Workin' at the Woolco Manager Trainee Blues" and David's rendition of "Let's Go Santa" has become a Christmas standard . His research skills, command of language and knowledge of Cape Breton and Nova Scotia were second to none. He used these qualities to operate his step-on guiding company Good Guide Almighty . In recent years, David took great satisfaction working as a teacher assistant with the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board, and always tried to gently instruct his kids with a dollop of fun . His greatest delight was to perform. For more than 30 years, as General John Cabot Trail, he made people laugh across Canada. He poked fun at politicians and made light of the news. A keen observer of human nature, a quirky sense of humor and a quick wit provided fodder for much of his comedy . David was a strong supporter of others in the entertainment field, particularly Cape Breton musicians and fellow comedians. He often donated his time to MC events for charitable organizations . An honourable, honest man, he was always mindful of others, whether individuals or the community. He was never judgmental nor disparaging in his outlook. As for hobbies, he was a voracious reader, avid birdwatcher, cyclist, hiker, camper and photographer. He liked to explore and always sought the path less travelled with a special interest in our country's history, architecture and natural offerings . Born in New Waterford, Dave grew up in Sydney Mines. He was the son of the late Edith (MacLeod) Harley and Alex Harley and grandson of Annie "Big Nana" MacLeod who encouraged his artistic endeavours . David was a passionate family man, survived by his wife Claire Andrea of Sydney Mines and by his sons, Stephen (Marnie) Harley; Jesse Harley and Bret (Erin) Harley of Halifax. His grandsons, Seth, Charlie and Jackson brought him great joy. He cherished his time with sister Norma (Ralph) Baxter and their children, especially the holiday dinners. He kept in close contact with his brother Robert (Rose) Harley in Alberta, and his sister Sandra Harley in Alaska. David's life was also filled with the love of many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and in-laws. He will be missed by his friends Jim Nunn and the Nunn family, Lawrence MacInnis and Leon Dubinsky . Cremation has taken place. Family and friends will gather to celebrate his life on Sunday, Nov. 18, 2012, from 2-4 p.m. at Sydney Mines Pensioners' Club, 6 Fraser Ave., Sydney Mines . In lieu of flowers, Dave suggested donations to the Sydney Mines Food Bank. Donations may also be made to the Hospice Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton County . Online condolences may be made at .

Joe went to heaven (Wed. Aug. 24, 2011) and will be deeply missed by all who loved him. Born December 12, 1959 in Glace Bay, he was the son of the late Allan and Olive (Jewell) Hart. Joe was a recent Cursillesta, which profoundly changed his life and filled him with the Holy Spirit. 2 Corinthians 5:17. This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old is gone; a new life has begun!Our Joe was an outgoing man who loved people. He had a soft spot in his heart for anyone in need and helped everyone he could. He was a very compassionate man and had a heart of gold. Joe loved to fish but his greatest love was for God, family and friends and his pets. Joe, with his big heart, looked after our mom before she went to Heaven. He loved unconditionally. No problem of ours was too big for Joe, and it quickly became his problem too. He always helped us willingly and readily. He will be sadly missed by his brothers, Jimmy (Raylene), Glace Bay, Allan (Nancy), Nunavut; sisters, Cathie MacLean, Glace Bay, Mary (Lionel) Port Morien.Joe was a father figure to many of his nieces and nephews, who will miss him forever, Amanda, Jodie, Jeffery, Vrnda, Bradley, Brandon, Colin, Kayalah, Marisa, Dan, Alisha, Lacey, Trina, Tracey, Naryan. Also, grandnieces and grandnephews, Kerstin, Anthony, Trinnette, Brycen, Alliegha, Nathan, Joshua, Olivia, Colton, Gage, Brooklyn. Also his special friend, Goldie. Joe’s final days on earth were spent in a small God filled community in Baker Lake, a wonderful vacation, a gift from his brother Allie and family. He greatly enjoyed this time with his family, meeting new people and making new friends. He also enjoyed being in his element, fishing. Every day, a couple of times a day, he fished at Baker Lake. This same loving community went above and beyond the call of duty to search for Joe, and for this we will be forever grateful. The last place Joe was fishing was Inukshuk Point. A celebration of Joe’s life will be held Saturday, Oct. 1 at 2 p.m. at Lighthouse Church, 224 York St., Glace Bay, with Rev. Dave Sawler officiating. You did not go alone, Joe! A piece of each of us went with you and we will miss you forever until we meet again. Even though your body is lost we know that you were found by our Jesus. May you enjoy eternal life in the house of our Lord. We love you so bigg! 8/24/2011 Sydney on Dec. 12, 1959

Hart Nelson Hart Sydney Post-Record 2/16/1940 Leland Harvie Margaree Youth Is Fatally Injured Falling Tree Strikes Nelson Hart, 21, Causing Severe Skull Fracture Northwest Margaree, Feb. 16 - Victim of a distressing accident in the woods a half mile from his home here yesterday afternon, Nelson Hart, 21, died from the effects of a fractured skull when a falling tree struck him. With his brother Fulton, George Crowdis and several other companions, Hart was engaged in cutting firewood at the time of the unfortunate occurrence. Rendered unconscious from the terrific impact of the blow, he was carried to the home of his uncle Andrew Fraser and succumbed there two hours afterward. Called to the scene, Dr. Boudrot on examination found that the skull had been severely fractured and his findings were later corroborated by Dr. Frank MacLeod, of Inverness, who happened to be in the district on professional business yesterday afternoon. Because the circumstances of the incident were purely accidental, an inquest was deemed unnecessary. The victim was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Chipman Hart of this community and the tragic passing of the young man came as a distinct shock and has caused deep regret in Inverness county where both he and his family are well known and esteemed. Besides his parents, he is survived by one sister, Eva and six brothers, Fulton, Tom, Sanford, Everett, Seward and Chester. The funeral will take place on Saturday afternoon, services to be held in Frizzleton.

Rick Hatcher

Born In: Neil's Harbour, Nova Scotia, Canada

Passed in: Neil's Harbour, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed on: August 20th, 2012

It is with tremendous sadness from the deepest of our tear filled
hearts that we announce Rick's death on Monday, Aug. 20, 2012.
Rick was a hard worker and a man of his hands; the majority of the
houses North of Smokey know his carpentry skills. He had recently
taken his work out west to Fort MacMurray and Saskatoon in order to
provide for his family. However, he was more of a man of his heart
and will be best remembered as an extremely caring individual who
would drop whatever he was doing to help anybody in need. He
supported his community as a Beaver leader and a volunteer
firefighter at the Neil's Harbour fire department.
Rick was a true friend and he was genuine with everyone that he met.
Rick was a lover of jokes and pranks and rarely left a room without
leaving a smile on someone's face. He had an ear for music and could
carry a tune on a guitar, or any instrument, just as well as the
rest. Rick lost many lines and lures hauling in his fair share of
trout and he could often be seen driving down the road with his good
buddy Tameka (dog).
He was a warm son, a caring uncle and a loving brother and twin. He
was an affectionate husband and father, and a true gem of a Poppy.
The happiness in Rick's soul was on full display when he was with his
young grandchildren.
Rick was predeceased by his father, Stanley Hatcher and most recently
his cousin and best friend Darryl MacKinnon.
Surviving are his wife, Claire (Fitzgerald); sons, Nathan Hatcher
(Catherine), Ingonish, Grant Hatcher, Halifax; daughters, Alison
Hatcher (Frankie), Westmount, Shaunna Genneaux (Vince), Fort
McMurray. His loving mother, Joan (Burrage) Hatcher, Neil's Harbour;
twin brother, Bruce Hatcher (Karen), Neil's Harbour; sister, Ann
Hussey (Arnold), Clarenville, N.L. His charming and talented nieces
and nephews, Scott, Carlene, Timothy; Joanne, Laura and Nicholas;
aunts, uncles, cousins and many, many friends, especially Donnie
Jessome, and coworkers in Saskatchewan, and his old buddy Gordie
Budge. Poppy's beautiful grandchildren who he loved "more than
anything in the world", Carson, Jacob, Jesse, Chael; Xzander; Silas
and Isobella.
Heartfelt thanks to Claire's coworkers at Buchanan Memorial, the very
special nurses and doctors. Paramedics, especially Lyall and Greg. To
our family and friends, thank you so much.
Visitation will be held 7-9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 24 at Neil's Harbour
and New Haven Fire Department. A funeral service will be held 4 p.m.
Saturday, Aug. 25 at St. Andrews Anglican Church, Neil's Harbour,
Rev. Brenda Drake will officiate. Interment in parish cemetery.
Donations in Rick's memory may be made to the Mental Health
Foundation of Nova Scotia. www.mentalhealthns.ca.
Online condolences may be sent to www.fillmoreandwhitman.com.
"When my days on earth are numbered and it's time for me to go,
I pray to God to grant me one last plea.
To lay me in that peaceful spot where my kin has gone before,
In God's haven in Neil's Harbour by the sea"
(My Village by the Sea, by Stanley Hatcher).

Hawley Gregory Joseph ‘Greg’ Hawley CBP 10/24/2011
On Oct. 21, 2011, we lost our husband, father, uncle, cousin and friend, Gregory Joseph ‘Greg’ Hawley, 55, at home in New Waterford. Born Feb. 24, 1956, he was a son of the late Harold and Tena (Chiasson) Hawley. Greg was an active member of our community, volunteering time and talent to various fund raising concerts. He, along with his band Tapestry, provided years of fun and joy at dances from one end of Cape Breton to the other. Greg also had a soft spot for Christmas Daddies and Combined Christmas Giving and was only too willing to volunteer for these events. He will be missed by all who knew him. Greg was a graduate of St. Francis Xavier Junior College in Sydney with a certificate in chemical engineering. He went on to work at Internav in Sydport for 11 years. Following this he was employed with Micronav for seven years and then Atlantic Electronics in North Sydney until his retirement. At the early age of 15, Greg began his professional career in music with the help of Pius and Kevin Burke playing their first dance. In the same year, Stan ‘Sam’ and Bob joined the group called ‘The Chosen Few’ playing the local circuit for seven years. The group disbanded over work commitments but Greg and Pius carried on for the next 17 years with the band called Tapestry. After the Tapestry years, Greg continued as a solo act for the next 10 years, playing special events for charity and community gatherings. Greg was a gifted musician and a gifted friend. Greg was also a skilled baseball player in his youth. He was an intelligent pitcher with pinpoint control and a feared hitter. He played on many teams that won provincial and maritime baseball titles. In 1968, Greg led the Police Club Mets to the New Waterford little league championship and also was presented with the league’s most valuable player award. In 1971 he captained the New Waterford Kinsmen Rovers to an Eastern Canadian Bantam baseball title, and pitched a two hitter in the final game against a strong Montreal team. He also picked up the tournament’s most valuable pitcher award. He and the members of the Kinsmen Rovers team were honoured this past year at the Coal Bowl and Greg enjoyed seeing old friends and reminiscing about the past. Greg won two Midget Provincial titles in 1972 and 1973. His finest game as a pitcher came in ‘73 during an extra inning game against the Sydney Steel Kings in the Cape Breton Midget finals. He pitched all 18 innings to secure the win and then led the New Waterford team to a provincial title against Dartmouth. He was a member of the Glace Bay Mark Ten junior team when they played the Cuban national team in the mid seventies. The Cubans, not used to Cape Breton summers, lit a fire in the dugout to keep warm. His last championship team was the New Waterford Dodgers, winning an Atlantic Intermediate ‘A’ baseball title in 1986. Greg also enjoyed playing hockey and was a strong Montreal Canadiens fan. Other hobbies included golf, fishing and hunting. He was especially fond of going on cruises with his wife, Cathy. Left to mourn are his wife, Cathy (Little) Hawley; daughter, Jacqueline (Ian) Townsend; Lingan; brothers-in-law, Ray MacIsaac, New Waterford, David (Sharon) Little, Dominion, Dwight (Francine) Little, Dominion, Scott (Cheryl) Little, Slave Lake, Alta.; sisters-in-law, Joanne (George) MacDonald, Glace Bay, Karen MacKinnon, New Waterford; parents-in-law, Dave (Viola) Little, New Waterford; uncle Bernard ‘Butch’ Chiasson, New Waterford; niece Raylene (Shannon) MacLeod; grandnephew Andrew and grandniece Erynn along with several other nieces and nephews; many cousins and his extended family; very special friend, Pius Burke. Greg was the last surviving member of his immediate family. Besides his parents, Greg was predeceased by a sister Patricia ‘Patsy’ MacIsaac. Visitation will be held Monday, Oct. 24, 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 Greg will take place 10 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25 at the Parish Church of St. Leonard, Mount Carmel Avenue, with Fr. Ray Huntley officiating and Rev. Duncan Roach concelebrating. Cremation will follow with burial at Forest Haven Memorial Gardens, Sydney, at a later date. A luncheon will be held at St. Leonard’s Parish Hall, Convent Street, New Waterford, immediately following the funeral mass.

Hayes Michael Hayes CBP 8/21/2013
Michael Hayes
Born: August 2nd, 1928
Passed on: August 19th, 2013
The world has lost a man of profound faith, acceptance and determination. Mickie’s faith was amazing. When his wife Joanie passed we were afraid for him. The strength he showed was something indeed. He said she was with God and that comforted him.
His life was not an easy one. He didn’t grow up privileged but grew into a man who was gentle and kind of heart. He wasn’t privileged but it was a privilege to know him. In the early years, every morning before heading out to work at the steel plant, he would make breakfast for all his kids and bring Joanie a cup of tea and some toast to her in bed. Someone once asked why did he do that and he said she has to take care of the kids all day long so it was the least he could do to help her.
After his accident at the plant, Mickie had to retire. This was a difficult time for him having worked his whole life. His life was now described as before the accident and after it. From being an independent man to one that had to rely on others, he adapted.
When life in the Meadows, where he and Joanie had built their life and their home, became too much of a challenge, they moved to the Pier. Here they spent many years socializing and living the “city life.” He enjoyed his time there but his heart was always in the country.
He loved telling stories about hunting deer and growing up on the farm in Woodbine. They had very little but he thought and it was probably right, they had everything. He would tell stories about how he and his brothers would be pulling off some kind of shenanigans or about how his mother would spin wool and then knit mittens and blankets from it. Every night they would get on their knees and say the rosary and he spoke of taking the horse and wagon to Christmas Eve mass at St. Mary’s in East Bay. He spoke in later years of he and his brother Hughie going back to the farm and tending the garden they had put in or just going out there for a drive. Up until his death, Hughie and Mickie spoke Gaelic to each other. He loved Celtic music.
His youngest daughter Charlene was a gift born to him when he was a bit older. She was only a few months old when he was hurt in the plant accident. This meant that he spent a lot of time with her as a baby and then as a toddler to the point where she went everywhere with him. His friends and family would come out and take him for drives and she always wanted to go. She was told one day that Dad was going and she was staying home and to not make a fuss about it. She was about three. She said to him “May I see you for a minute in the hall.” He didn’t have the heart to leave without her.
Just as there were the two parts of his life, before and after the accident, there were two other parts that overlap this, with Joanie and the journey he began after losing Joanie. After Joanie passed, he spent his days at the VON day program. Here he showed how adaptive and accepting he was. He wanted to help and he did. We want to thank the people of this program for giving Mickie a place where he could go and feel useful, where he enjoyed himself and where he was treated with kindness and respect.
The next stop on his journey was the Inverary Manor in Inverness. To be driven a couple of hours away from your home and your life and taken to a place where you had no family or friends must have been difficult. He didn’t want to stay but we asked him to do it and he did. It wasn’t long before he was surrounded by family because that’s what the place became to him. It became his home. He loved being there and they loved him. In fact, when the time came to move back to Sydney he didn’t want to leave and they didn’t want him to go. Our heartfelt thanks to the staff of the Inverary Manor for loving Mickie and making his transition easier.
The third part of the journey began at the R.C. MacGillivray Guest Home in Sydney. Here he spent the final years of his life. Once again he didn’t want to stay but we asked him to try it and he did. Mickie would be in the lobby and would greet everyone that came through the door. He loved to help and said one day that some people needed help and he wanted to give it. One phrase you would often here him say was “can I help.” Once again he was surrounded by family. We don’t have the words to fully express our gratitude to his family at the MacGillivray Home. We offer special thanks for the care and love that you showed him and his family in his final days.
The final stop on his journey was on Monday morning two weeks after his 85th birthday. The morning mass was broadcast over the speakers and about five minutes after it ended Michael left this world to join his Heavenly Father. We believe he could hear it. We thank Fr. Rankin for his time with Mickie.
Michael, son of the late John and Sadie, was predeceased by the love of his life, his wife Joan (Mombourquette). They had been married for close to 50 years and had six children together.
He is survived by his brother, Hugh (Florence); children, Heather (Ervin), Michael Francis (Sharon), Patrick (Anne-Marie), Jean (Ken), Florence (Steve) and Charlene (Shawn). He is also survived by 13 grandchildren and one great-granddaughter.
He is also survived by brothers-in-law, Joe (Betty), Leo (Dale) and Brian (Krista) Mombourquette, sisters-in-law, Anna (Al) Bennet, Paulette (Angie) Pearson, Louise (Gordie ) MacDonald and Charlene (Hughie) MacDonald.
Michael was predeceased by his brothers, Sam, Dan, Neil, sisters, Margaret Lively, Jenny Keller, Pearl, Mary Ann, Florence and Jessie White.
Cremation has taken place. You may join the family for visitation Thursday, Aug. 22 from 7-9 p.m. at Sydney Memorial Chapel, Welton Street. A funeral mass will be held Friday, Aug. 23 at 10 a.m. at St. Mary’s Church, East Bay, with Rev. Frank Abbass offiiciating. Burial will follow at Resurrection Cemetery.
Donations can be made to the MacGillivray Guest Home in Mickie’s honour or to a charity of choice.
“The suffering of adversity does not degrade you but exalts you. Human tribulation teaches you; it does not destroy you. The more we are afflicted in this world, the greater is our assurance for the next. The more we sorrow in the present, the greater will be our joy in the future.”

THOMAS HEAD LAID TO REST

Old-Timer of Taber and Native of Newfoundland Passes Away

(From Our Own Correspondent)

TABER. Jan. 14— Passing away Sunday about 12.15 a.m. The funeral
of the late Thomas Head, an old time resident of Taber for about
15 years, with a number of descendants here and elsewhere, was
held from St. Augustin's R.C. church here on Tuesday afternoon to Taber cemetery with Father McCoy officiating.

Frailty of age was the general cause of death.

The family members here now for many years are well-known, one son, James and Mrs. Head and family being locally well known in mining and community life.

The late Mr. Head was pre-decreased by his wife in 1909 before his arrival here.

Born at a Newfoundland coast town in 1842, of British stock, the late Thomas Head was 88 years and eight months of age at the time of his demise and was well acquainted with much of the history
of the Gulf Dominion. While refusing overtures to join the Canadian
Confederation, wrapped himself in its traditional flag, as Chas. G. D. Roberts, Canadian historian says, and pursued its own progress to position of late years with dominion status.

The Head family came out from Britain and settled in the island,
and Thomas Head was brought up to the occupation of fisherman.
In which so many Newfoundlanders are engaged.

Mr. and Mrs. Head were both Newfoundland natives as well, and
anyone recalling the figure of the old timer since a resident in
Taber will not be surprised that he was of sea faring folk.

Opening of the big coal mines at Sydney and Glace Bay in Cape
Breton resulted in the removal of the Head family to Glace Bay,
and when a number of the Cape Breton miners came to Alberta, some
of the family joined the westward exodus.

The parents and remainder followed later, Mr. Head coming to Taber, where his sons were employed in the mines, in 1913. In 1915 he went to B.C. for two years. Returning in 1917 since when he has resided in Taber.

Seven sons and one daughter were born to the Newfoundland couple,
of whom the daughter and one son are resident of Newfoundland, two sons in Nova Scotia, two in Idaho, one at Redcliff and one in Taber.

Two sons and their wives arrived from Idaho for the funeral, and one from Redcliff. James Head, who was working in Idaho of late, is ill at present, and was unable to return for the funeral, though his family were present.

The funeral obsequies were simple and quiet by desire of the family, but Mr. Head was known to many here.

Hennessey Eugenie Elizabeth "Gene" Hennessey C.B.Post 8/5/2004 Maureen McNeil HENNESSEY, Eugenie Elizabeth "Gene" - Sydney, passed away peacefully Tuesday, August 3, 2004, in Cape Breton Regional Hospital. She was 77. Born in Sydney, she was the youngest daughter of John E. and Katheryn Florence (Battersby) Fraser. Gene graduated from Sydney Academy and attended Normal College in Truro to pursue her lifelong passion - teaching. Gene taught in the Sydney school system for over 30 years and retired early due to poor health. She was often amazed when a student of many years past would greet her on the street and ask if she remembered them. She was always interested in being brought up to date on their lives and it was most rewarding to her to have played a small part in every child's growth and development. Gene was involved in the Nova Scotia Teachers Union. She was the first female president of the local union, working successfully to gain equality for the married woman in the teaching profession. She was also a member of the Sydney Retired Teachers Association. Gene was an active member of the Eastern Star. She was also a gifted soloist in the community and sang at many weddings, funerals and minstrel shows so popular in the 50's and 60's. She was also well-known as the soloist for the Trinity Male Chorus, thus being the only female in a male-dominated group. Besides her parents, Gene was predeceased by her sisters, Doris Young and Adelaide Green, and by her beloved husband of 47 years, George. Gene is survived by her only child, Bruce and his wife Judy (Tonell), Lebanon, New Hampshire, and by her grandson, Liam, Dartmouth. Several nieces and nephews and countless friends also survive her. In particular, Helen MacNeil, Norma Gillis and Jemima and Tony Shaw watched over her like the true angels they are. Finally, "Mrs. Hennessey" will always be remembered by the hundreds of children who she taught throughout her career - those smiling faces she loved and nurtured while in her care. Rest in peace, Mother. Visitation will be held in Sydney Memorial Chapel today from 7-9 p.m. and Friday 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral service will be held in St. George's Church on Saturday at 11 a.m., Rev. Reg MacDonald officiating. A private family burial will take place at a later date. Family flowers only. Memorials may be made to Canadian Diabetes Association or a charity of choice.

Many family and friends visited, swam, picnicked, and then roasted marshmallows around the evening campfire. Her grandchildren, and later on, great grandchildren competed to toast the most perfectly golden marshmallow for their Nan. In recent years, a craft show and dinner at a local restaurant were usually on the agenda. We could always count on a great visit and a hot cup of tea with her. Hazel is survived by her three children, Ken, Sydney, Raylene (John Leadbetter), Enfield and Ron, Edwardsville. Nannie was loved and cherished by her ten grandchildren, including Darlene, with whom she shared a very special bond; 22 great-grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren were blessed to have her in their lives as well.

Charles William Herney, Membertou

Born in 30/06/1929

The Creator called our father home. With heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of our father, Charlie Herney. He joins our dearly loved, late mother, Matilda "Tillie" (nee: Googoo).
He was predeceased by his son, Earl, daughters, Rhodena Christmas and Theresa Mugridge.
He was the son of the late William Herney and was raised by the late Susan Margaret Gould.
He is survived by his brothers, Sulian and Bobby (Virget) Herney. Charlie was predeceased by brothers, Leo Joe, (Membertou), Noel and Tom Herney (Eskasoni). Also predeceased by sisters, Flora Francis (Eskasoni), Mary Agnes Francis (Malagawatch), Margaret Copage (Shubenacadie) and Christine Herney (Maine).
Missing him are his daughters, Linda (Lawrence) Wells, Hazel, Sylvia, Bernadean and his sons, Bruce (Sandra) Herney, Michael Herney, Clifford Copage, Logan and Jeffrey Herney, (Regina, Sask.) and brother-in-law, Fred Googoo.
Charlie loved his grandchildren, they miss him and they loved him dearly, including Elissa, Rosalyn, Dawn, Chelsea, Crystal, Lynn, Deborah, Julianna and Jada, (Regina, Sask.). He loved his grandsons, Donald, Lawrence, Brandon, Drew, Russell, Raymond, Rodney, Julian, Joshua and Leo.
Charlie loved music, especially the fiddle. He used to take in all the local Cape Breton fiddle concerts in Big Pond and Iona. He loved practising the fiddle with his late friend Wilfred Prosper. At any aboriginal ball tournament from Cape Breton to Ontario, Charlie could be heard yelling "Atta Boy" to encourage others! He was instrumental in developing young ball players into such memorable teams as the Membertou Thunder Birds. Charlie also loved to bowl. He was a member of Sydney Pensioners Club.
Charlie, his late wife Tillie, and Mrs. Pauline and the late Wallace Bernard were the first to organize the annual pilgrimages from Membertou to Ste. Anne de Beau Pre in Quebec. Charlie had many stories and adventures that made the long trip more memorable, so we hear.
He attended services at St. Anne"s Church and St. Anthony Daniel. He loved songs in the Mi"kmaq language as he was fluent in two languages: English and Mi"kmaq, his first language.
Charlie was a carpenter and cabinetmaker by trade. Charlie worked at J.W. Stevens Lumber Company for more than 20 years. He worked for 15 years with the Union of Nova Scotia Indians. He later became a small business owner, Herney Dairy. He had a wonderful sense of humour that he loved to share.
Charlie was a member of the Mi'kmaq Grand Council for over 30 years. He served as the Putus for 18 years. It was a responsibility he treasured. Charlie met the Queen and a Pope.
He laughed and joked and prayed and encouraged others all his life. When you see a driver with a turn signal blinking for a while and a slight slow-down in traffic, think of Charlie. For every good play in ball or hockey, remember to give an "atta boy"!!!, it"ll make your day a little brighter.
People called Charlie the boss or Putus. He loved to camp at Potlotek for Chapel Island Mission Days.
Public visitation will start Thursday, Jan. 14 at 6:30 p.m. at 127 Membertou St., Membertou. Funeral mass will be celebrated Saturday, Jan. 16 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Anthony Daniel Church with Rev.

Sean was an ordinary young man who became our hero with the extraordinary circumstances he faced everyday. Diagnosed with a cruel and relentless disease ALS, he faced it head on with courage, dignity, and always a smile on his face.
There were many difficult and challenging moments for 'Tubie' but he always managed to pull through. His contagious laugh, and beautiful smile would light up a room. Sean’s presence in life was short but he left a legacy of love and compassion for others whom he always put first. He was quick to please and gave from the heart.
The family hopes that you will honour Sean’s life by learning about this disease thereby to identify the cause and ultimately find a cure.
Cremation has taken place. Visitation for Sean will be held from 1-3 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2013, at S.W. Chant & Son Funeral Home, 564 Alexandra St. Sydney. A memorial service will be held immediately after the visitation at 3 p.m. There will be a reception following the service.
In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to ALS NS, 900 Windmill Rd., Unit 113 Dartmouth. N.S., B3B 1P7.
