Kaifosh David George Kaifosh Cape Breton Post 11/20/2009
David Kaifosh, Scotchtown

Born at Scotchtown , Nova Scotia , Canada

With sadness, we announce the passing of David George Kaifosh, 78, of Catherine Street, Scotchtown on Nov. 11, 2009 at Harbourstone Enhanced Care, Sydney.
Born in Scotchtown, he was the son of the late John and Eva (David) Kaifosh.
David married twice. He separated from his first wife, Daisy (Butler) Kaifosh, mother of his three children, Fred, Deb and Sandra.
He was predeceased by his second wife, widower Theresa (Scott) Moar.
David’s varied career had him working in a bank, a flower shop, driving a Coca-Cola delivery truck, serving thirteen years in the RCAF as a photographer, including a stint in Zweibrücken, West Germany, where he maintained and modified reconnaissance cameras used on the CF-104 Starfighter. After leaving the air force, he pursued work in the audio visual and printing industries until his retirement. After the death of Theresa, he returned to Scotchtown to keep an eye on his elderly mother, caring for her as long as he could. While in Scotchtown he was an active member of his parish. Like his father, he enjoyed hunting and fishing.
In addition to his children, David is survived by his sister, Elsie Nagy; three nephews Michael, Kenneth and Tim Nagy; two first cousins, Margaret (Kaifosh) Lewis and Helen (Kaifosh) Ilkanic; eight grandchildren, Jennifer, David and Brian Le Bel; Patrick and Carol Kaifosh; Erin, Emma and Ari Koivu as well as three great-grandchildren, Madison Goodall-Le Bel, Andrew and Lydia Rose LeBel. He is also survived by his aunt, Violet (David) Nodge and first cousin Mary (Nodge) Smith.
David and his family suffered the ravages of Frontal Lobe Dementia, which insidiously, surreptitiously, and gradually, over the course of several years took him from us and gave back someone whose behavior was not the usual. David’s message is that an older person behaving in odd ways may also be suffering similarly; be kind, be thoughtful, and above all, leave their mementos for the family.
At David's request, a private visitation will be held at V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 380 Smith St., New Waterford. A funeral mass of celebration for David will take place Saturday, Nov. 21, 2009 at 10 a.m. in the Parish Church of St. Leonard with Father Paul MacNeil officiating. Interment will follow at St. Joseph Cemetery in Port Hawkesbury.
Online expressions of sympathy may be sent to the family at: www.vjmcgillivray.ca.
David’s family thanks the staff of Victoria Haven, especially Marie, who displayed great patience with David, in the early and difficult stages of his illness. As well, the staff of Harbourstone Enhanced Care who provided care in his final days, the staff at Seaview Manor who alerted us to his condition, the late Dr. Joseph Roach, Margie Turnbull, Lawrence MacDonald and many others who helped us deal with the difficulties of David’s situation. Although you may not be named, your help, support and advice was always appreciated. To Basil R., Kenny, Basil Sr. and staff of V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, we thank you for your guidance and support during our time of grief. A special thanks to Daisy, who visited him on his final day.

Kavanaugh Quinn Kavanaugh CBP 6/6/2013
Quinn Kavanaugh
It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of our dear, wonderful and deeply loved son, brother, uncle, nephew and cousin, at the age of 32.
Quinn graduated from Breton Education Centre, Cape Breton University and the University of Maine at Fort Kent. After substitute teaching in Halifax, he went out west to begin a new career. He attended the Marconi Campus of the N.S. Community College and successfully achieved his Red Seal as a pipefitter.
He loved the community of New Waterford and started planning early for securing his future in town by acquiring a number of rental properties.
Quinn had a great love for his family. Regardless of where he was, hardly a day passed when there were not several text messages and extended phone calls to his parents. He always encouraged and enjoyed family get-togethers, particularly if the menu included Rockett’s lobsters.
Throughout his life, Quinn made countless friends who thoroughly enjoyed his company and, who in return, benefited from his loyalty, devotion and kindness. He greeted everyone with true warmth and an infectious smile.
Perhaps Quinn is best described by his close friend, Patrick Roach, who recently wrote, "Quinn was truly a unique individual. His comedic charm made him loved by all who met him. He had more friends than anyone I know. My life, as well as so many others, will never be the same without him. Quinn was my brother."
Quinn is survived by his parents, Jim and Mary (McIsaac) Kavanaugh; his sister, Kim (Glen) Matheson and his niece, Kendra. He is also survived by numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
Quinn was predeceased by his grandparents, Jimmy and Marie (Gatto) Kavanaugh and Ronnie and Violet (Quinn) McIsaac.
Cremation has taken place. Visitation will be held from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. on Friday, June 7, 2013 at V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 380 Smith St., New Waterford. A funeral mass celebrating Quinn’s life will be held on Saturday, June 8 at 10 a.m. in the Parish Church of Saint Leonard, Mount Carmel Avenue, New Waterford with Fr. Ray Huntley officiating. Following mass, a reception will be held at the KOC hall on Plummer Avenue.
Organ and tissue donation has taken place and will benefit a number of transplant recipients.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Quinn’s memory may be made to the RTO Legacy Foundation, which provides medical treatment and educational training for sick and challenged children or to a charity of one’s choice.

Kearney Elizabeth 'Betty' Kearney CBP 11/13/2013
Elizabeth 'Betty' Kearney
Born In: Noranda Quebec
Born: March 24th, 1934
Passed in: New Waterford
Passed on: November 12th, 2013
It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Elizabeth 'Betty' Kearney on Nov. 12, 2013. Betty was at home, surrounded by her loving family, where she died peacefully.
Betty's life began in Noranda, Que., March 24, 1934. She was the third eldest of nine children born to Alec Dan and Jessie (MacQuarrie) MacLennan of Inverness.
At the age of 17, Betty began training in the nursing program at New Waterford General Hospital and graduated in 1955. Her nursing career spanned 40 years in New Waterford hospitals with many years as head nurse in the emergency department. Betty established a reputation as a firm, but fair, hard-working, dedicated nurse, respected by all those she worked with. She treated everyone with kindness and compassion, and she always felt it was important to "make a connection" with all the people she met and cared for.
Betty had many fond memories of her former colleagues, but she felt that her greatest legacy was her family. In 1956, Betty and her devoted husband, Clarence (Tantz), began their married life together and welcomed the first of their four children in 1957. Betty's family tree continued to flourish, giving her the title of "Grandma" to 11, and "Great-Grandma" (GG) to two.
Betty was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend to many. Her homemade pancakes and biscuits were tops on the menu at weekend sleepovers, along with an occasional trip to the Bayside for a butterscotch sundae. "Grandma" loved spending time with her grandkids, as well as sitting on her front deck in the warm summer days, sipping a cup of tea and reading the paper in the company of friends, or her sisters, Joan and Dolly.
Betty couldn't say enough about the loyal friends she had, from her "golden girls" to the Mt. Carmel Church Choir. She always looked forward to the "golden girls" gatherings numerous times throughout the year. Another special group are "Betty's Angels" — devoted members of her family and friends who supported her in the Ovarian Cancer Walk of Hope for the past three years. She was deeply grateful to them for their support, especially this year when they brought the walk to her, because she was unable to make it herself. In the words of her youngest grandson, "I'll miss Grandma a lot, but she would want us to keep calm and carry on," so Betty's Angels will meet at the walk again next year, in Betty's memory.
We will miss Betty's sense of humour and fun-loving ways, but we are thankful for her 79 years of life, which were an inspirational gift to all those who crossed her path.
Betty was predeceased by her parents, her loving husband, Tantz, in 2002, her brother, Clem, and sister, Christina.
Betty is survived by daughter, Kathy (Mike) Hinchey, Antigonish; sons, David (Paula), Antigonish, Paul (Colleen), Fort McMurray, Sandy (Heather), New Waterford, and grandchildren, Kimberly, Ryan, Mitchell, Adam, Alex, Brennan, Shannon, Erin, Mackenzie, Ben and Nicholas and great-grandchildren, Andrew and Emma; sisters, Joan (Wally) Cameron, Boisdale, Dolly Hill, Lower Sackville; brothers, Toby MacLennan, Ontario, Manion MacLennan, John R. MacLennan and Chisholm (Diane) MacLennan, all of New Waterford; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Visitation will take place on Thursday, Nov. 14, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 380 Smith St. in New Waterford. Funeral mass will be held Friday, Nov. 15 at 10 a.m. at the Parish of St. Leonard with Fr. Ray Huntley officiating. Interment will follow immediately afterwards at Mt. Carmel Cemetery.
All are invited to join the family for a reception at the KOC Hall, Plummer Avenue.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Ovarian Cancer of Canada Society, St. Vincent de Paul, VON, Palliative Care or a charity of one's choice.

With profound sadness and deepest regret, we announce the sudden passing of our cherished son, brother, and uncle, John Lawrence 'Larry' Keigan, fondly known by so many as Lava. Larry passed away Saturday, Oct. 20 at St. Catharines General Hospital, St. Catharines, Ont., with his adoring family by his side. Born in Sudbury, Ont., Dec. 23, 1970, he was the only son of Colin William (Bill) and Rachael (Parks) Keigan of Sydney Mines.

For the past many years he travelled all over the country, working primarily in the Alberta oilsands as a pipefitter/steamfitter. An extremely hard worker, he was very well liked and respected by his fellow tradesman for his work ethic and proficiency in the trade. He was a proud member of local 56 United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters in Dartmouth, NS. An avid sports and a lifelong Toronto Maple Leafs fan, Larry could often be seen proudly sporting his favourite Leafs ball cap. He absolutely loved music and was an accomplished guitar player who loved getting together with family and friends, playing and singing until the sun came up; he was truly the life of the party. He enjoyed fishing and spending time and sharing laughs with his family and many friends, too many to count. His larger than life personality, keen sense of humour, infectious smile, generosity and ability to make those he held dear feel loved and special will be his legacy.

Fraser Glace Bay, Dec. 2 - In the death of Mrs. Dan Keigan, Main street, this community suffers the loss of one beloved and respected by all who had the pleasure of her friendship. A daughter of the late Mrs. and Mrs. Donald H. MacKenzie, one of a family of six sons and six daughters, Mrs. Keigan was born in Glace Bay 77 years ago. Her husband, the late Dan Keigan of the Customs Department, predeceased her by a number of years.

Sisters left to mourn her passing are Mrs. Alex L. Hay, Glace Bay; Mrs. Isabelle MacDonald, Hollywood; Mrs. Mary Erskine, Winnimucca, Nevada; and Mrs. Margaret MacAulay, Winnipeg. From her youth Mrs. Keigan identified herself in church work and was a lifelong member of Knox United Church. Ever active, Mrs. Keigan proved of valuable help in Sunday school, being a faithful and consistent teacher in this branch of service for many years. As a member of the Ladies’ Aid her labor was greatly appreciated, being found ever willing and ready to do her best in every way possible for the good of the organization. Gifted with exceptional histrionic talent, having a keenness of wit and the saving grace of humor, her efforts in this sphere of activity made her a popular and favorite feature in any program. In community work, such as church relief and Y.M.C.A. organization her interests were untiring. Possessed with a remarkable memory and with a fondness for recalling old times and associations, those fortunate enough to visit the home, found it a pleasure and often came away feeling that they were the ones who benefited by such visits. Cheerful, hopeful, helpful and ever looking forward with a calm steadfast and confident faith, Mrs. Keigan was an inspiration and an encouragement to many who now mourn her departure.

Four Killed When Great Wireless Mast Crashed Down

Shocking Tragedy at Marconi Towers

Near Glace Bay - Fell 120 Feet - Three Instantly Killed

GLACE BAY, July 8 - Four men, Norman MacRURY, Hugh CONNINGTON, A. KELLY and M. POPE, were killed at noon yesterday at the Marconi Towers, near Glace Bay.

The men belonged to Louisbourg. They were erecting a steel mast and were in a cage 120 feet from the ground when the mast collasped. An official investigation to determine the cause of the collaspe of the tower will be conmended Monday afternoon at Glace Bay, by Coroner P.E. Ogilvie.

About the same hour Louisbourg will witness one of the saddest, the four coffins of the victims, scenes in her long history, when Norman MacRury, Hugh Connington, M. Pope and A. Kelly will be carried in a common funeral procession to their last resting place.

Up to the present time nothing official has been given the public as to the reason of the accident beyond the obvious information that the failure of an important part of the structural steel frame precipitated the catastrope.

The four men were structural steel workers, and specialists in the erection of wireless towers of the lattice type. They were engaged in extending an old mast to a height of 310 feet. They had reached a height of 180 feet at noon, Saturday, and were working at that level, when without warning, some of the structural steel at the ninety foot buckled and the upper half of the mast toppled over and fell to the ground, carrying the workmen down in a tangle of girders.

The tower did not break off completely, but buckled and fell over, its appearance after the accident being much the same, as that of a straw bent double. The lower half of the mast remained verticle, the upper half sloping at an angle down to the ground. When assistance arrived it was found that Connington, Kelly and Pope had been killed instantly, MacRury lived for about an hour after the accident. All four were badly crushed and mutilated by the steel. MacRury was the only married man of the four, all of whom belonged to Louisbourg. This is said to be the first accident of its kind in the history of the Marconi Co., in Canada. The four victims had been engaged in similiar work for years and were well known in wireless circles in Cape Breton for their skill in their different occupations. A special train on the Sydney and Louisbourg Railway carried the bodies to their home in Louisbourg.

Born at Lingan , Nova Scotia , Canada

It is with great sadness and deep regret that we, the family, announce the unexpected passing of John William (Johnny) Kelly on Thursday, Nov. 5, 2009 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney, surrounded by his family.
Born and raised in Lingan, he was the son of the late Thomas and Mathilda (Burke) Kelly. He was a devoted member of the St. Joseph’s parish, Lingan for his entire life. Johnny worked as a coal miner in collieries # 12, 16, 18, and Lingan for the Cape Breton Development Corporation until his retirement in 1972. He spent his retirement as avid volunteer in the community.
Johnny was a member of the Lingan Community Centre and spearheaded numerous projects in the community.
Some of his accomplishments were the ball field, the recreational beach area, restoration of the St. Joseph’s Cemetery in which he dedicated most of his time over the years, the church where he acquired several grants to help improve the church and community hall. Johnny was a charter member of the New Waterford Historical Society, a member of the New Waterford Pensioner’s Club.
John was a great mandolin player who volunteered his time with his band “The Good Times” at various manors and nursing homes in the local area playing for the residents. One of his greatest enjoyments was his barn parties with family and friends.
Throughout his lifetime he was involved in local sports such as hockey, baseball and darts. He was an original member of the Lingan Hustlers baseball team. To many people he was simply the “Mayor of Lingan.” He was always there to lend a helping hand, or help out in anyway he could.

Robert 'Cy' Kennedy

Born In: Glace Bay

Passed on: February 3rd, 2014

“You can take the boy out of Cape Breton but you can’t take Cape Breton out of the boy.”
In saying that, it is with great sadness we announce the passing of Cy Kennedy at home on Feb. 3, 2014 at the age of 80 years.
Cy was born in Glace Bay, N.S. to Jim and Isabelle Kennedy.
He is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Sylvia; son, Jim (Cheri); daughter, Kathy (Lance); grandchildren, T.J., Trista (Kyle) (great-grandson on the way!), Thomas and Jennifer. He is also survived by sister, Sarah (Walter); brothers, Thomas (Janice), Daniel (Morag) and was predeceased by brother, Evan (Joan).
He was extremely proud of his Cape Breton heritage and his 33 year career in the Royal Canadian Air Force (retiring as a Master Warrant Officer). During his various postings, he made many friends across Canada and the United States. Cy was a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. He was known for his quick wit, off the wall sense of humour and loved eating fresh lobster with friends and family. His other passion was travelling. He and Sylvia enjoyed many years of trekking to various parts of the world (Hawaii being his favorite). He also enjoyed hockey, golf, curling and anything connected with electronic gadgets. Who will figure out the TV remotes now?
Special thanks go to the Kolstad Families (our extended family), to the staff of the Cross Cancer Institute (Dr. Mary Loree Larratt), and to our family doctor (Dr. David Hasinoff and his staff). Cy really appreciated the many phone calls and visits from the family and friends. These would often generate boisterous discussions, especially when the topic was about government policies. Our heartfelt thanks to all who have supported us through this difficult time. We couldn’t have done it without all of you.
Respecting Cy’s request, no services will be held.
In lieu of flowers, it is requested that donations in his name be made to the Cross Cancer Institute, 11560 University Ave., Edmonton, Alta., T6G 1Z2.
Please share your memories of him with us by logging on to edmontonjournal.com/obituaries or through a card to the family.

Kennedy Violet Mae (Brewer) Kennedy CBP 9/14/2011
At first the angels stood behind her head guarding her every breath. Later when her breath began to fade, the angels hovered above her, gently lifting her heavenly spirit into the hands of God. On the beautiful morning of Sept. 13, 2011, Violet Kennedy passed away in the loving comfort of her family home in New Victoria. At the time of her death, Violet was cradled in the love of her family. Violet, better known as Mama Kennedy, defined the word grandmother. It was a role that came naturally to her. From babies to toddlers to teenagers and everything in between, she played an instrumental role in the lives of her 15 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren. She leaves the younger generation of our family with memories of music and laughter, sleepovers and late night giggles, kitchen ceilidhs and cherished conversations. She taught them well and loved them dearly. Violet loved family gatherings, neighbours dropping by and long chats. Her house was a gathering place where all who entered felt at home instantly. She delighted in preparing Sunday suppers and relished in all the good company and food that they brought with them. She was blessed with a healthy sense of humour and loved to share a good laugh. Violet had a strong sense of community and over the course of her life she was an active member of the New Victoria CWL. Above all else, she was best known for her kind and gentle spirit, her strength and her warm heart. For this we are most grateful. Violet was blessed to have an extraordinary group of ladies “the girls” keep her company and assist with her care throughout the years. In many ways, these ladies were an extension of her family. She was grateful for their support and held each of them in high regard. Born in New Waterford, N.S., Violet was the daughter of the late James and Mae (Lockart) Brewer. She is survived by daughters, Jane (Richard) Montague, Concord, Mass., Rita (Blair) Darroch, Howie Center, Mar-Lynn (Peter) MacNeil, River Ryan, Karen (Patrick) Tallack, Victoria Mines; sons, James (Ailish) Kennedy, Acton, Mass., Kevin Kennedy, River Ryan and son-in-law, Ken Bellows, Coxheath. In death, Violet will be reunited with her husband, Russell Kennedy, daughters, Mae and Margie and her son, Russell Jr. (Bubby) Kennedy. Visitation will take place Thursday, Sept. 15 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 380 Smith St., New Waterford. Funeral mass will be held at St. Leonard’s Parish, Mount Carmel Avenue, on Friday, Sept. 16 at 2 p.m. A reception at the KOC on Plummer Avenue will follow. Burial will take place along the beautiful shoreline of St. Joseph’s Cemetery, New Victoria. In lieu of donations, Violet simply wished that each of us live our lives in a kind and gentle manner and that we bestow an act of kindness onto another human being in honour of her memory. You were loved. You will be missed. We were blessed. Online expressions of sympathy may be sent to the family at www.vjmcgillivray.ca. 9/13/2011 New Waterford, Nova Scotia, Canada

He was a cast member of the first Rise and Follies in 1977 and contributed many jokes to Summertime Revue.

Ron was the originator of the 4U2 SEA license plate, the stylized tarabish playing cards, and the Cape Breton Passport. Ron was also a staunch supporter of and advocate for the Aids Coalition of Cape Breton, and was a member of its current Board of Directors. Ron was a dreamer, a writer, a walker, a gracious host and an innovator. He will be missed by all who knew him. The family would like to thank the many people who have helped Ron over the years, especially during the time of his illness, with special appreciation for the Home Support workers who provided care for the past three years.

Kierans Eric William Kierans The C.B.Post 5/11/2004 Maureen McNeil KIERANS, Eric William, P.C., O.C., B.A., LL.D (Hon.), D.C.L. (Hon.) - On May 10, 2004, in his 91st year, less than a year after the passing of his beloved wife of 65 years. Few have led as full and eclectic a life. From humble beginnings, he graduated through scholarships from Loyola High School and Loyola College, magna cum laude, in 1935 in the midst of the Depression. Employment, then, meant selling barrels of flour in the Maritimes, hamlet to hamlet. Nonetheless, he scraped together the wherewithal to marry his adored Teresa (Whelan) in November, 1938. Post Second World War, his career exploded: small businessman, entrepreneur, student (post-graduate studies at McGill in economics and at St. Thomas More Institute). He successively became professor of economics and Director of the McGill University School of Business and, subsequently, President of The Montreal and Canadian Stock Exchanges. In 1963, he was enticed into Quebec politics and The Quiet Revolution by Premier Jean Lesage, serving consecutively as Minister of Revenue, Minister of Health and President of the Quebec Liberal Federation. A committed federalist, he ran for the leadership of the Federal Liberal Party, subsequently winning election to the House of Commons and, in 1968, entering cabinet as Postmaster General and then Minister of Communications. He resigned from cabinet in 1971 and resumed his post as Professor of Economics (McGill, 1972-1980, and Dalhousie University, 1983-1984). His business and corporate directorship roles continued until his later years. In the interim, he authored and co-authored books and a Royal Commission. Perhaps his most satisfactory endeavor, in his later years, was his role in Peter Gzowski's weekly radio program "Kierans, Camp and Lewis." The initial idea was to spark debate among three prominent members of different parties. But, philosophically, no feather could be inserted among them. A role for the state, for compassion and for humanity infused each.

Kierans Owen Kevin Hugh Kierans (L. Col.) Cape Breton Post 9/18/2009
L. Col. Owen 'Kevin' Kierans, Sydney

Born at Montreal , Quebec , Canada

L. Col. Owen Kevin Hugh Kierans M.C., 87, of Sydney, passed away peacefully at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney, on Monday, Sept. 14, 2009.
Born in Montreal, he was the son of the late Tom and Margaret Kierans.
He is survived by his sons, Gerry (Gordana), Germany, Ken (Jana), Halifax, N.S., Barry, Hamilton, Ont.; and their mother, Patricia, Truro, N.S.; grandchildren, Denis, Kathleen and Annie, Halifax, N.S. and Matthew and Carolyn, Vancouver, B.C.; and several nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his brothers, Tom, NL and Emmitt, Montreal, Que.
Kevin was predeceased by his partner of 27 years, Rita Lachowiez and her son, Gary, sisters, Mona and Mollie, brothers, Martin, James and Dairmuid.
Leaving Loyola College to enlists in the Canadian Army, Kevin arrived in France shortly after D-Day with the North Shore Regiment of New Brunswick as a young lieutenant. By war’s end, he saw action in France, Holland and Germany. Included in his many decorations, and the one he was most proud of was the Military Cross for “gallantry in action” while serving in Germany. Although wounded twice in battle, he was not deterred from making his career in the military. He would serve in Korea and with the United Nations in Vietnam. On retirement from the armed forces, Kevin worked for the Bank of Montreal and eventually as a business consultant in Cape Breton.
As a young man, Kevin participated in a variety of sports, excelling in boxing and football, while at Loyala. A lover of books, Kevin was an avid reader of history and politics. As the son of an Irish immigrant, his passion for Ireland (which he and Rita visited on several occasions) and Irish history were second to none. He was a longtime member of Branch 12 of the Royal Canadian Legion.
Kevin loved Cape Breton and particularly New Campbellton, where he and Rita lived for many years. It was there he learned to play ‘tarabish’, enjoying the game with his many friends. He was also a member of the Cape Breton Bridge Club.
Kevin will be fondly remembered by his Cape Breton family, Ron (Joanne), Sydney, N.S. and their children, Glenn (Laura), Oakville, Ont., Robbie (Amanda), Halifax, N.S. and Katie, Halifax, N.S. and by Betty Ann (Pat), New Campbellton, N.S. and Ponte Vedra, Florida, USA.
There will be no visitation. Cremation has taken place. Interment and the Last Post will take place at the New Campbellton Cemetery at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 19, 2009.
Donations may be made to a charity of choice.
A special thank you to “the ladies from Newfoundland” and in particular, Ellen Bernard and Tracy Rose for the loving care they provided Kevin over the last six years and Janice Mader for her care and support during Kevin’s final days.

King Linda (Mercer) King CBP 1/17/2013
Linda (Mercer) King
Passed on: January 16th, 2013
Linda Rachael (Mercer) King was an inspiring mother, wife, sister, grandmother, daughter, aunt, best friend, journalist, feminist, artist and quilter; she died Jan. 16, 2013.
Linda was unconditionally loved and supported by her husband, Dave; daughters, Laura and Susan; sister, Noreen and an unbreakable circle of generous, witty and sometimes outrageous girlfriends and their spouses.
Dave was her rock of more than 50 years, and she was his; their journey together started in high school at Sydney Academy. Linda and Dave were a team in life and work - overcoming challenges as young parents, running a successful business in D.M. King Adjusters Ltd., raising independent children, packing up the trailer for summers in Mira and Ingonish, travelling, celebrating milestones, building their home in Ben Eoin, entertaining their friends, and spoiling their grandchildren.
Linda's family is small and scattered: Laura lives in Oakville with her husband Gerry Arnold and sons Patrick and Christopher; Susan is in Howie Centre with her husband, Kevin Chant, and daughters Allyson and Christy; her sister, Noreen March and brother, Rick Mercer, are in Sydney. Adored nieces, Valerie Merchant and Linda Feringa and their families, are in Eastern Passage, N.S., and Port Elgin, Ont. Nephews, Billy and Christopher March and their families, and Christopher Kelly, are in Sydney, and Leonard March and his family are in Halifax. Sisters-in-law, Ruth King and Shirley Murdock are in Sydney and Sarnia, Ont.
Linda was predeceased by her infant granddaughter, Sarah Chant - twin to Allyson - and by her parents, Eric and Martha.
Some might say Linda was stubborn; to others, she was smart, independent, strong-minded, well read, witty, worldly and liked to challenge the status quo. She was an environmentalist before it was trendy to be one, and she was an uncanny judge of character.
Linda grew up in the north end of Sydney, attended Central School and Sydney Academy, and started work at Metropolitan Life immediately after graduating high school at the age of 16.
Linda found her passion and her calling in the late 1970s as the Cape Breton correspondent for the Halifax Chronicle-Herald; as a writer and reporter working from her home office, Linda immersed herself in her work as a journalist and her curiosity and intelligence made her a brilliant writer and story teller.
Linda relished good books, proper grammar, great food, fun, and shoes. Linda was known for her annual come-as-the-woman-you-most-admire parties in celebration of International Women's Day.
Linda's gift for colour and style made her a superb quilter. Linda's children, grandchildren and close friends benefited greatly from her quilting prowess, her keen eye for design and her generosity with her quilted creations.
Linda was most famous, however - at least among her grandchildren - for the best-in-the-world chocolate-chip cookies she baked for them and with them, and for the hours she spent cutting, sewing, drawing, painting and gluing on cold winter days and rainy summer afternoons.
Linda was involved in the Sydney Curling Club, the Sydney City Hospital Ladies Auxiliary, the Nova Scotia Insurance Women's Association, and the City of Sydney Bicentennial Committee; she co-chaired the Sydney Academy class of 1961 reunion committee and celebrated with Dave and dozens of friends in style at the 25th in 1986. Linda was a member of the Monday Night Quilters; her knack for creating patterns was envied by her quilting sisters and mentors, whose talents she respected immensely.
Linda requested (actually, she spelled out very clearly!) that she be remembered by friends and family in their own ways - through the quilts in their homes, the books and trinkets on their shelves, and the voice they will hear in the backs of their heads while reading the labels at the dollar store!
Linda had asked that donations be made to the Cape Breton Cancer Centre, Patient Care Fund or the Palliative Care An Cala Unit - at 1482 George St., Sydney, N.S., B1B 1P3 - or the VON Cape Breton Metro, 390 King's Rd., Moxham Court, Suite 5, Sydney, N.S., B2S 1A5.
Friends are welcome to an informal drop-in Friday from 2-4 p.m. at the East Bay Fire Hall.

Passed away on: 18/02/2010

It is with great sadness and sorrow that we, the family of Stephen Michael Kitching, announce his passing on Thursday, Feb. 18, 2010, after his brief battle with lung cancer.
Born in Kingston Upon Hull, England, Stephen was the son of Lillian Alice (Carter) Kitching and the late George Kitching. He came to Canada with his family as a child and later made his home in Cape Breton.
Stephen held many positions in his lifetime, but his passion for technology led him to create many small computer businesses. His latest and most successful venture is Coinsoft Technologies Inc., which he was actively working on until the last days of his life.
He had a strong love of family and treated his stepchildren as his own. Stephen especially enjoyed quality time with his three granddaughters. He loved nature walks, special holidays, collecting history memorabilia, playing his guitar and visiting ‘Ma’. A true gentleman, Stephen was more concerned about seeing to the comfort and welfare of others, always putting them at ease with a friendly smile and saying “Just call me Steve!”
He is survived by his loving family, wife, Helen (Turner) Kitching and their two children, John, Sydney, Susan (Bryan), Glace Bay and granddaughters, Autumn, Arianna and Alexis. He is also survived by his brothers, George, Richard and sister, Susan, all of Ontario; brother, Martin (Angela); sister, Angela (Hank), both of Nova Scotia; and sister, Tracey, British Columbia.

She was a devoted and loving wife, mother, sister, and an awe inspiring 'Nanny'. She took great pride in her marriage and her family, both of which brought her endless joy. A beautiful and gentle soul, filled with compassion and love for others, she took great pleasure in the simple things that life had to offer, such as baking blueberry pie with her grandchildren, caring for her cat, or simply spending time in the kitchen with the teapot filled, chatting with family and friends. Her cooking skills will be missed, as will her sweet tooth.
Margie will be forever missed by her ever loving husband, Walter (Bud) Kozera; her son, John (the late Debbie) Kozera, Annapolis Valley; her daughter, Kelley (Gary) Gittis, Pennsylvania; five grandchildren, Matthew (Marylee) Kozera, Kristina (Francis Gagnon) Kozera, Samantha Kozera, Daniel Gittis, and Andrew Gittis; as well as three great-grandchildren, Liam, Aiden and Catherine Kozera; one sister, Colleen (Blick) Campbell; three brothers, Dan C. (Valerie) MacNeil, Bill (Linda) MacNeil, John (Theresa) MacNeil; and many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her sister Joan (James 'Sham') MacDougall, aunt, Sadie (MacNeil) Fogarty and by Ethel (Timmons) MacNeil.
The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the angels who helped guide us through this journey, particularly: Catherine Schella, Dr. Kozel and Arlene Rutledge, Catherine Kennedy, Janet Kokocki and staff. We are also eternally grateful to the wonderful and caring staff of Harbourstone Enhanced Care Center.

It is with heartfelt sadness that we, the family, announce the untimely passing of our loving mother at her home on Monday, Aug. 26, 2013.
Born in Scotland on Dec. 20, 1919, she was a daughter of the late Alex and Rose Whyte. At the early age of seven, she came to Canada with her family where she grew up, fell in love, and married Michael Kuchurean. Together they raised two children.
She was a member of Holy Family parish (formerly St. Pius X), a founding member of their CWL, and a member of the Sydney Mines Pensioners Club. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family.
Left to mourn her loss is her daughter, Susan; and her son, David (Jacquelaine), both of Sydney Mines. She also leaves behind her four grandchildren, Michael, Adam, Sarah and Jon David; six great-grandchildren, and many, many friends.
Besides her parents, Elizabeth was predeceased by her husband, Michael, sisters, Mary and Annie, and brothers, John, Alex and Jimmy.
Cremation has taken place under the care and direction of J. M. Jobes Funeral Home, 635 Main St., Sydney Mines. Her family will receive visitors at the funeral home on Thursday, Aug. 29, 2013, at 1:30 p.m. A cel
