John Iannetti
Born In: Sydney Mines
Passed on: May 2nd, 2013
John Alfredo Iannetti, 91, of Sydney Mines, passed away peacefully Thursday, May 2, 2013, at the Northside General Hospital.
Born in Sydney Mines, he was the son of the late Antonio and Juliette (Constantine) Iannetti.
John was founder-president of Iannetti Brothers Contractors/Iannetti Brothers Scrap Dealers. John started in business at an early age with the assistance of Charlie Layton’s father, of Layton’s Lumber, Sydney Mines. John's business blossomed during the years of demolition of railroads, coal mines, steel plant and locomotives; but to mention a few. Pride and diligence were taken in the accomplishments of demolition, while neither the injury nor a life of a worker was ever incurred.
John lived a full and colourful life, forever the storyteller. When not working John enjoyed spending time with family and friends at his cabin at his beloved Jersey Cove (his second home). Throughout the years, our mom never knew who would be at our dinner table. Many times Da would arrive home with strangers, who always left as friends.
He is survived by his siblings, Rosina (Francis ‘Tassie’) Arseneault, Norena Iannetti and James (Pauline) Iannetti of Sydney Mines. Memories of ‘Da’ will be forever cherished by his children, Lydia (Saker) Iannetti, John Jr. Iannetti, Charles (Louise Prince) Iannetti, Linda (Lorne) Serroul, Gregory (Mary Mellen) Iannetti, Angela Iannetti, all of Cape Breton. He is also survived by grandchildren, Georgette (John) Young, Angela (Steven) MacDonald, Nadia Saker, Lorne Jr. Serroul, Melissa Serroul, Joanna (Chad) Wascom, Christopher Iannetti, Samantha Iannetti and great-grandchildren, Carter and Hali Wascom, Daniel and Josephine Young, Aiden and Reilly Serroul, and Claudia MacDonald, our most recent addition, just weeks old.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his wife, Annie (McCready) in 1999 and by siblings, Laticia, Franky, Amelio, Armundo, Abbey, Patsy, Joe (Puppie) and Louie.
Special thanks is extended by the Iannetti family to Michel and Louise McKeough, Mike Igoe, Dale Miller, Northside Homemakers (Michelle Handly), nursing staff and housekeeping — 4 West Northside General Hospital and the VON (Donna Stewart).
Visitation has taken place at Francis Funeral Home on Saturday and Sunday. Mass of Christian burial was held on Monday, May 6, at St. Joseph Church, North Sydney, with Rev. Patrick O’Neill officiating. Burial took place at St. Joseph Cemetery, Bras d’Or. Upon return, a reception was held in the basement at St. Joseph Church, North Sydney. An open house was held following the reception at the home of Angela Iannetti, 26 Archibald Ave., North Sydney. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the care and direction of Francis Funeral Home, Sydney Mines.

Illich Mary Illich CBP 11/16/2013
Mary Illich
Born: August 8th, 1937
Passed on: November 13th, 2013
On November 13, at the Leisureworld Lawrence residence, Mary passed away peacefully. Her body decided that it had enough. She felt her late parents and siblings calling. She closed her eyes and, quietly in her sleep, left this earthly realm and joined them in the 'great beyond'.
Mary was born August 8, 1937 in Scotchtown, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. It was there that she attended school, worked, and now leaves many friends.
In the 1960’s, after the death of her father (the late Peter Illich), she moved to Montreal, (and, many years later, Toronto) with her mother (the late Maria Juszko), to be close to her sister (the late Irene Illich Henry), her brother (the late Peter Illich), and their families. Mary’s youngest brother, Julius Illich, had passed on in 1942. Mary leaves behind many nieces, nephews and their families. She will be missed with sadness by all.
She had been an avid member of the Mycological Society of Toronto for many years, until she could no longer attend the forays in the search for new species of mushrooms.
If anyone wishes to contact a family member, they can do so by sending an email to one of her nieces, Rosemary, at r_schon@hotmail.com and she will pass on any message.
In remembrance, donations can be sent to the Alzheimer Society of Toronto.
Arrangements have been entrusted to The Simple Alternative, 416-441-1580.
