Rolfe Moffat

Born in: Nova Scotia, Canada
Born on: 05/08/1934

Passed away in: Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed away on: 02/04/2010

On Good Friday, April 2, 2010, Rolfe left the loving arms of his best friend and soul mate (Mollie) to go into the waiting arms of our lord.
Rolfe was a member of St. Eugene's Parish, Dominion. He was a dedicated, long time employee of St. Joseph's Hospital, Glace Bay for 43 years. He first started work at the hospital at the age of 16 working in the kitchen. From there he moved on to be the grounds keeper working his way into the boiler room as a boiler operator. With more education and studying he became assistant engineer until he became the chief engineer of St. Joseph's Hospital. He retired in 1994 to enjoy his life and his family.
He loved watching the hockey games with his son Rolfe and great grandsons, playing a game of crib with anyone who was prepared to lose. He always looked forward to his May fishing vacation with the boys. Rolfe loved the long walks on Dominion Boardwalk with Ma, camping with his family at the Water Fence, New Waterford and then on to Provincial Park, Ingonish Beach. When at home, he would be taking pride in showing his grandkids how to garden and then relaxing with his favorite author Louis L'amour.
Always the carpenter, Rolfe built a beautiful home with many rooms where he and Mollie would raise their family with hearts filled with love and admiration for each other.
He will be sadly missed by his loving and caring wife of 54 years, Mollie (Barron) Moffatt. Daughters, Jane Rizzo (Kevin), Molly Moffatt Boutilier, Ralphina Boutilier (Arthur), Rita Thomson (Robert), Rose Moffatt Cameron, Kim Fortune (Michael), Alice Moffatt Gouthro, Bernadette Vaters (Basil), Lydia, Katherine, Donelda Boutilier (Greg) and by his only son, Rolfe, whom he loved very much. Rolfe also leaves behind 24 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren. To them he was their 'Poppy Moffatt'.
Rolfe is survived by his sister Audrey Wingate and brother John Moffatt (Rachel).
Predeceased by his parents, Dan and Maryann (Mclean) Moffatt. Daughter Colleen in infancy; sisters, Gloria (Lochie) Mclean, Lydia (Clem) McLennan and Jean, Brother Donnie (Mary) Moffatt; son in laws Wayne and Ronnie Cameron. Mother and father in law Frank and Catherine Barron.
Now our loving father, husband, grandfather, great grandfather, 'poppy', uncle and 'friend to many' has gone safely home to the lord's house with many rooms.
Visitation will be held at Curry's Funeral Home, 773 Main St., Glace Bay on Tuesday April 6th and Wednesday April 7, 2010 at 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Mass will be held at St. Eugene's Parish on Thursday morning April 8, 2010 at 11:00 a.m. with burial to follow at St. Joseph's Cemetery, McLeod's Road, Reserve.

"In the quiet of a moment
I'll sit and think of you
I'll open up my memories
Of the things we used to do
And I'll engrave each one of them
Deep within my heart
There they'll stay - a treasure.
And each and every moment
That I need you here with me
I'll open up that treasure
Buried deep inside of me
And thank God for the memories
That will always be a part
Of the gift of love
You freely gave
From your gentle, caring heart."

Alexander 'Alex' Adolphus Mombourquette
Born In: West L'Ardoise
Passed in: Barra Head
Passed on: November 16th, 2013
Alexander 'Alex' Adolphus Mombourquette, 80, of Barra Head, N.S., passed away suddenly at his home on Nov. 16, 2013.
Born in West L’Ardoise, N.S., he was the son of the late Charles Adolphus and Annie Mae (Briand) Mombourquette.
Alex was a man of action, and believed deeply in the notion that a single person could and should make a difference to the world around him. This was evident in his career, his volunteer work and his willingness to help friends and family.
Alex built a 30-year career with the Co-operators and was a committed member of the co-operative movement. His career took him, Mary and family from L'Ardoise to St John's twice, Sydney, Moncton twice, Regina and Halifax, making many friends along the way. He and Mary retired in Barra Head.
Alex supported his community and church and was involved in many volunteer organizations, such as the Knights of Columbus, Voluntary Planning, and Co-op Council. He was named 2006 Distinguished Co-operator by the N.S. Co-operative Council and was recently named honorary president of the Progressive Conservative party of N.S.
His love of carpentry and woodworking shone through in projects like kitchen cabinets for his children, helping build a home for his in-laws and a cottage for his sister, crafting an altar for the church, and building his and Mary's home in Barra Head.
After retirement, Alex and Mary spent many years travelling around North America visiting family and friends. When Mary's health declined, Alex devoted his life to taking care of her, so she could live out her years at home. Alex missed Mary dearly but was beginning to laugh and enjoy life again, travelling to visit his children and grandchildren, making new friends, and talking of future adventures. He was active until his last day. He will be dearly missed.
Alex was a loving husband, father, and brother who held family and friends in the highest regard.
He is survived by his five children, Michael (Cynthia), Duane (Shari), Brian (Ross), Ian and Juanita (Barry); his eight grandchildren, Matthew, Sean, Amy, Amanda, Carrie, Julie, Rachel and Lori, and his three siblings, Joan Giles (Bob Gore), Sam (Elaine) and Annette Martell (Jerome).
He was predeceased by his wife, Mary Isabel (nee MacNeil) and a sister, Marie in infancy.
Resting in Holy Guardian Angels Funeral Parlor, L’Ardoise with visitation on Monday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral Mass will be offered from Holy Guardian Angels Church, L’Ardoise on Tuesday, Nov. 26 at 10 a.m. with interment in Immaculate Conception Parish Cemetery, Barra Head.

Autumn Lea Mombourquette

Passed away in: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed away on: 03/08/2010

Our hearts are breaking as we announce the passing of Autumn Lea Mombourquette after a brief but sudden illness on Aug. 3, 2010, at the IWK Health Centre.
Autumn was the daughter of Peter and Amanda (MacDonald) Mombourquette of Clayton Park West in Halifax.
She is survived by her brother, Jack; grandparents, Eric and Dorothy MacDonald, River Ryan; and Peter and Anne Mombourquette, Sydney; great-grandparents, Blanche MacDonald, Sydney; Alfred and Olive Sheppard, Lingan. She is also survived by uncles, Jeffrey and Christopher MacDonald, Michael and Deneca Mombourquette; Leanne and Joseph Hutt; and cousins Keara, Kayla, and Michael.
Autumn was a beautiful baby and brought great joy to everyone during her short life. She smiled at a young age, often at her big brother Jack who she so adored. She loved sucking her thumb, going for walks and watching and listening to her Dada's silly songs. But most of all Autumn loved her Mama - she would immediately brighten whenever her mother entered into the room and would first ask and then insist on being picked up by raising her arms. Her Mama always accommodated her every wish and Autumn spent hours upon hours being carried by her mother, happily sucking her thumb, smiling mostly with her eyes, as she watched her brother and father play.
Autumn will forever be remembered as Mama's little princess, for her wonderful smile which you sometimes had to work to see, her love of the ABC song and how much happiness she brought to everyone. It is hard to imagine that a little girl will ever be missed more.
The family would like to offer a special thank-you to all staff of the PICU unit at the IWK Health Centre.
There will be a mass to celebrate Autumn's life at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 6 at Saint Benedict's Parish, corner of Radcliffe and Dunbrack Street.
E-mail condolences may be sent to amanda1@staff.ednet.ns.ca.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Ronald McDonald House.

MOMBOURQUETTE Wilfred Amedee MOMBOURQUETTE


Wilfred Amedee MOMBOURQUETTE, Wilfred Amedee - 75, of Boutilier's Point, passed away suddenly at home on April 15, 2001. Born in Arichat, Cape Breton, he was the son of the late Simon and Evageline (Theriault) Mombourquette. Wilfred will be fondly remembered as a loving, caring and devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, brother and a friend to many. He was very proud of his family and of all their accomplishments. He was a veteran of the 2nd World War, serving in the North Nova Scotia Highlanders. He retired from HMCS Dockyards with 33 years service in 1985. He was a carpenter and locksmith by trade, but was lovingly known by his family as "The Inventor", a handyman and jack-of-all-trades. He took great pride in his many woodworking projects, renovating his home and building furniture for his family. He had a long "to do" list for every season and always had a new project on the go. Family gatherings and sing-a-longs were among some of his most treasured times. He enjoyed camping, playing his guitar, harmonica and keyboard, and was always ready for a game of crib with whomever would challenge him. Wilfred had a passion for life and was young at heart and in mind and soul. He loved a good joke and had a great talent for storytelling, especially over a cup of freshly brewed coffee. He loved to dance and was the first one on the floor and the last one off. He couldn't resist making an entrance without his trademark dance steps. Wilfred, Dad, Grampy, Amedee, Uncle Wilfred, Uncle Amedee, Woozie, you always put your family first. Whenever we needed you, were always there to offer support or lend a hand. You will never be forgotten and will be sadly missed by all whose lives you've touched. We are comforted by knowing that you are still watching over us. We love and miss you. The stairway to Heaven must have been in need of repair. He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Marion (nee Cornelius); son, Don, Halifax; daughters, Sharon (Douglas) Keel, Boutilier's Point; Cynthia MacInnis, Halifax; Paulette (Don) Gillespie; Twila (Rick) McInnis, both of Hammonds Plains; Angela (Adrian) Coupe, Hubbards; brother, Arthur (Olive), Ottawa; sisters, Margaret (James) Briand, Agnes Comstock, both of Halifax; Helen Wilkie, Dartmouth; Nora Purdy, Goodwood; Florence Ryan, Timberlea-Lakeside; eight grandchildren; three great-great grandchildren; many nieces and nephews. Cremation has taken place under the direction of the Ronald A. Walker Funeral Homes. Wilfred's wishes were for a family committal service to be held at the Gate of Heaven Cemetery, Lower Sackville.

Charles Moore

Born In: Sydney
Born: January 11th, 1951

It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of a loving soul mate, devoted father, doting Grampy, and faithful brother, Charles Moore.
Born in Sydney, Jan. 11, 1951, he was the son of the late Fred and Irene (Sheppard) Moore.
Charlie passed away at the Toronto General Hospital while awaiting a lifesaving lung transplant for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. Although our miracle was not to be, he never gave up his valiant fight to the very end.
In his earlier years, he was a member of the LIU, Local 1115, working on many construction projects in the Cape Breton area prior to relocating to Ottawa where he was employed until he retired in 2012 due to ill health. He was an avid fisherman and outdoorsman who took great enjoyment in life’s simpler pleasures, displayed great pride in his building projects, was an accomplished cook, but lived to tease his grandchildren. No problem was ever too big or too small for him to solve and his advice was dispensed with great modesty.
Left to mourn his passing is his wife of 40 years, Kenna (MacLeod); his son, Jason (Sophie Lafontaine), Ottawa; daughter, Jennifer (Sean) Forrester, Oshawa, and his 10 grandchildren who, to him, were his pots of gold at the end of the rainbow — Brian, Bailey, Devon, Anabelle, Jordan, Calum, Sam, Teagan, Owen and Charlie. He is also survived by sisters, Christine (John) White, U.K., Donna (John) Landry, Nancy (Jackie) Polegato; brothers, Wayne (Shirley), George (Lorraine); sister-in-law, Marilyn and by numerous nieces and nephews who loved him dearly.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his brother, Walter.
He will be missed by his faithful companion, Maggie.
A celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, Feb. 15 with visitation from 1-3 p.m. at the S.W. Chant & Son Funeral Home, Alexandra Street, with a memorial service immediately following. Reception to follow.
In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated to the Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation, Lung Transplant Program, R. Fraser Elliott Building, 190 Elizabeth St., 5th Floor, Toronto, Ont., M5G 2C4, or the Lung Association of N.S., 6331 Lady Hammond Road, Suite 200, Halifax, N.S., B3K 2S2.
"Grief never ends, but it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay.
Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith … It is the price of love."

Moore Clement P. Moore Sydney Post Record p 1 & p 3 4/3/1936 R. Fraser MERCHANT SUCCUMBS C P MOORE, OUTSTANDING CITIZEN, DIED EARLY THIS MORNING IN BUSINESS HERE ALMOST 45 YEARS DECEASED WAS MEMBER OF SYDNEY SCHOOL BOARD FOR 35 YEARS Civic, business, and community circles of Sydney today mourn the loss of a pioneer merchant and a prominently known and esteemed citizen in the death of C P Moore, M.B.E., which occurred at his residence, 688 George street, at an early hour this morning following a general illness. Ill Since August Stricken last August, and undergoing a serious operation at the time, he staged a remarkable recovery and continued at his hardware business on Charlotte street, which he established almost half a century ago, up until three weeks ago when taken ill again. Fails To Respond This time the malady was of severe internal character, and despite best of medical care and attention he failed to respond and gradually succumbed, the end coming at 6:30 o'clock this morning. General Shock His passing, when the news circulated throughout the city, came as a general shock to many, and all sides eulogistic reference was paid him by the hundreds who knew him during his 43 years residence in Sydney. Active Force Modest and unassuming he was nevertheless an active force in the community life of Sydney, having been a member of the city council, City School Board, Board of Trade, Social Service Council, Children's Aid Society, Rotary Club, Curling Club, Bairncroft orphanage, Sydney Presbytery, and senior elder of First United Church. Work Recognized His 30 years unflagging interest in child welfare work drew recognition from the late King George Fifth, who remembered him in his 1935 New Year honor list and made him an M.B.E. - Member of British Empire. Of Loyalist Stock He was of pre-Loyalist stock, his forefathers having landed in Cape Breton in 1734 - a year before the Loyalists came - and settled along the shores of Upper North Sydney. A son of John Belcher Moore, and Harriet Maloney, he was born at North Sydney on December 3, 1854 and after being educated at the North Sydney Academy, he entered the teaching profession and the years from 1873 to 1882 witnessed him as Principal of Schools at North Sydney, Port Hawksbury and Little Bras d'Or. Started Business Retiring from teaching in 1882, he decided to go into business with the late George MacKeen and strarted a hardware store in the town of North Sydney and remained there until 1893 when he moved to Sydney, then on the threshold of the steel boom. His business partner here was the late Edward Johnson and they located their shop at the now familiar Moore's Corner, Charlotte and Pitt Streets and remained at that stand ever since - a period of 43 years. Partner Retired Johnson remained in the business for about seven or eight years, and then resigned to go into the contracting trade, leaving Mr Moore to carry under the established firm of C. P. Moore's Hardware. Of humble origin, the business progressed with the expansion and industrial development of the city, and the little wooden building on the corner gave way to a large and more pretentious structure. (Continued on page 3) PIONEER CAPE BRETON MERCHANT (Continued from page one) In 1883 he married Emma E Johnstone, sister of his Sydney business partner, who predeceased him about 25 years ago. On School Board Education was his hobby, and for over 35 years he occupied a post on the City School Board as Commissioner and played no small part in advancing the cause of education in this city, many of the fine existing school buildings having been constructed during his tenure. Fine Service Child welfare work witnessed him playing an active role and for 15 years he was President of the Children's Aid Society of Cape Breton, and upon his retirement a couple of years ago the organization made him Honorary President in recognition of his fine service. His quarter of a century association with the School Board was fittingly remembered a few years ago by his confreres when he was presented with an illuminated certificate and purse of $25 in gold. In City Council His entry into civic life came in 1899 and he served one term at the Council Board retiring in 1900. Great Churchman In church circles, he was a familiar figure, having been an Elder and member of Board of Session in old Falmouth street church and later in First United church, as well as being Supt. Of Sunday School at that time. He was treasurer of the Presbytery of Sydney. Y.M.C.A. Board He was a member of the Y.M.C.A. and was on its directorate, as well as being associated with the Y's Men's Club and the Sydney Rotary Club. Veteran Curler An inveterate curler, he was one of the charter members of the Sydney Curling Club, and played on scores of rinks that brought curling honors to this city. On Board Of Trade A member of Sydney Board of Trade, he was a former President of that organization years ago, and was identified with Bairncroft Orphanage, and a great friend of that institution, President Social Service Council, and in 1922 was named to the responsible post of chairman of the Sydney Housing Commission which erected fine residences in the suburban districts of the city. In the 150th anniversary celebrations here last summer he took part in the pageant at Victoria Park, having represented his antecedents who were first settlers in Sydney and North Sydney. Scores of other church and service organizations in the city found him in active role. He is survived by two daughters, Louise and Jean; and only son, William, predeceased him about 10 years ago. Also surviving is a sister, Mrs T J Armstrong, of Portland, Oregon, who was called here by the critical illness and subsequent death of her brother; one granddaughter, Shirley Moore. Other immediate relatives include George B Murray, North Sydney, Wilfrid Murray, of Montreal; Louis Moore, North Sydney; Kathleen Moore, Portland, Oregon; Mrs Jock Keith, of Halifax. The funeral, a civic one, will be held on Sunday afternoon, and public service at First United church will take place at 3:45 o'clock. Flags on civic buildings and at the Bairncroft Orphanage are flying at half-mast out of respect to his memory. April 5, 1936 - CAPE BRETON PAYS FINAL TRIBUTE TO C. P. MOORE Hundreds of Citizens Attend Funeral of Respected Sydney Merchant - Service Held in First United Church Member of the Sydney School Board for over 35 years, as well as being a pioneer merchant and prominently known citizen, Clement P. Moore, was laid to rest Sunday afternoon in Hardwood Hill cemetery as hundreds converged here from all parts of Cape Breton to pay last tribute to his memory. Mecca for countless mourners in the past several days, his late residence at 688 George Street was the scene of private service for the family, after which the lengthy funeral cortege proceeded to First United Church. There the edifice was filled to more than capacity, and the streets along the route were thronged with men, women and children. Conducting the service at the house, Rev. L. B. Campbell, Pastor, also officiated at the church, and he was assisted by Rev. C. R. F. McLennan, of Glace Bay, who read the Scripture. Funeral Address Taking as his text, The Regalia of a True Knight, Rev. Mr. Campbell in his funeral address paid high tribute to the fine record and character of the deceased as a citizen, business man and church and community worker. Full Choir Under the direction of Professor A. F. MacKinnon, the choir was heard in several favorite hymns of the deceased, namely, Unto The Hills and Now the Laborer’s Task is O’er while Mrs. Ella Baines, soloist, sang, Crossing the Bar. Long Procession From the church the procession wended its way slowly to the burial grounds, and making up the concourse were representatives of the city council headed by Mayor Muggah, Police Chief W. R. Tracey and his department, Fire Chief Harry Mesereau and his force from the central and Pier stations, Supervisor Woodill, school commissioners and teaching staffs; the Board of Trade, under D. J. Bonnell, president; the Rotary Club, as well as hundreds of representative citizens on foot and in automobiles. Graveside prayers were offered by Rev. Mr. Campbell. Pall Bearers The pall bearers, all members of First United church session, were: Major D. S. Morrison, Fred McInnis, J. J. Morley, George McLeod, W. E. MacPherson and W. B. Parkinson. The wealth of beautiful floral offerings and the numberless cards, messages and other tokens of sympathy bore striking testimony to the high esteem in which he was held by all. Lifetime of Service In his funeral address, Rev. Mr. Campbell referred to the royal recognition given the deceased a year ago, declaring it is evidence enough that his lifetime of public spirited service did not pass unnoticed by his fellow men. Touching on the death of Mr. Moore, the pastor said: Following a brief period of distress after a long, full lifetime of 82 years, our friend entered into the eternal day with the approach of morning light, just as did his only osn, some years ago. And it seemed to me that our Heavenly Father had just called him home to give him the morning star, the token of immortal hope and the undimished splendour of the Father’s love. It’s glory would fittingly adorn his true knightly quality of life, that would enter gladly into higher ministry. Fine, Clean Life Later, he paid further tribute to the character and qualities of the deceased, saying there is scarcely any phase of fine, clean life in our city that will not feel the loss sustained in the passing of one of Sydney’s most illustrious son, Mr. C. P. Moore, M.B.E. Continuing, the pastor declared Coming from a family that reached in its roots back to the first people who settled here in 1784, he worthily exemplified the qualities that made his forefathers pioneers. And as he grew in appreciation of the trained mind, and entered educational work, which to the end of his days held his interest, and was increased the range of his service as School Commissoner for over 35 years. Few men have so fine a record in such public service as was possessed by Mr. Moore. And he was trusted in it as being the soul of honur, and good, sound common sense. From this there followed as the day the night, his profound and lasting affection for the young people. He was ever youthful in his own spirit. One would never think of him as being old. And his interest in children was remarkable, especially the underprivileged ones. For 15 years he was President of the Children’s Aid Society. He was on the Social Service Council, Y.M.C.A, and vitally interested in Bairncroft Orphanage. For years he was Supt. Of Falmouth Street Church Sunday School and taught regularly. No one can compute the thought and care and sacrifice that he put into this work for the young folk for whom he spent himself gladly. Prominent in Business Dwelling upon his association with the business life of Sydney, the minister said that he was never enslaved by business. Successful to a conspicuous degree, he demonstrated what many might learn from one as prominent as himself, that life is more interesting than business affairs, which are interesting and useful in serving men and giving opportunity to enter into other wider interests in life. That was how he used business, instead of letting it override the things for which he really lived. He was a straight forward and trusted man. The part he played in the civic and community life of Sydney was eulogized by the speaker, also his devout identification faith the church, its endeavors, and his home. In concluding he said: These are the gems in his Knightly regalia, and he wore them as to the true manner born. They were honorable and they are glorious. But God still keeps some honour that is best of all. This Knight has entered into the highest order of unchanging chivalry. In his heart is the jewel, and it’s gleam is the light from the morning star. [no date - Hardwood Hill cem: buried 5 Apr 1936]

She loved music, parties, her friends and family, a good meal, and getting her own way. A woman of strength and dignity, Janet loved herself wholeheartedly and so was free to love others with the same passion.

Moores John "Jook" Moores Cape Breton Post 1/26/2005 Carol MacLean John "Jook" Moores passed away on Monday January 24, 2005 at the Glace Bay Health Care Complex. Born in Glace Bay, he was the son of the late Clarence and Mary (McIntyre) Moores. Jook was an avid hockey enthusiast and was a candlepin bowler. He participated in the Knox and County leagues including the provincial tournaments. He played baseball with Parkside A.C. in Glace Bay. Jook's minor hockey career starated in 1952 with St. Anne's of the Rotary-sponsored Common School Hockey League. It was during Jook's midget and juvenile years that his outstanding hockey ability came to light. In 1954 and again in 1956, St. Anne's midget team won back-to-back Cape Breton Midget Hockey Championships. A big part of those winnings teams was the line of Moores, Salyzyn and Barrett. Jook was described as "a hard-working front-liner", and it certainly showed up in his numbers at game's end. During one game, Jook managed six goals and eight assists for a 14-point night. As testimony to Jook's style of play, it was said "that's just-like Jook; he will give away more than he will put in". At the tender age of 15, and still eligible to play midget for another year, Jook decided to move up to the juvenile level. In February 1955, Lou Passador, chief scout of the Montreal Canadiens, was in Cape Breton looking for young players who could make future leaguers. It was felt by many tht he over-looked Jook Moores. Jook went on to play on juvenile championship teams,was a member of the Cape Breton All-Star Junior Team and the Glace Bay Senior Miners. In 1958, Jook, along with Sonny Salyzyn and Duck Barrett was invited to attend the Detroit Red Wings junior training camp in Hamilton, Ontario. Jook rounded out his hockey career as a member of the Glace Bay Seniors Miners in 1959. And in later years, he would have been seen keeping "in tune" playing hockey for one of the colliery teams in the Cape Breton Development Corporation's Colliery Hockey League. Jook was employed with Havelock Beverages until 1962, then worked with Devco at the Central Shops in Glace Bay until his retirement. He spent over 40 years bartending at the Manor Tavern, Pithead Beverage Room and the Gillwood Inn where he enjoyed taling about his sports involvement. He is survived by daughter Kim (Glenn) of Oromocto, NB, son Gregg (Donna) of Riverview, NB, granddaughters Jenny and Renee, sister Rosie Garland, brothers Bobby (Trudy) of London, Ontario, Glary of Manitoba, and Al (Rosalee) of Glace Bay. In honouring Jook's request, there will be no visitation. Cremation has taken place. Any donations in his memory may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association. Arrangements have been entrusted to V.J. McGillivray Funeral HOme, 16 Reserve Street, Glace Bay.

Marie 'Claire' Morais

Born In: Bois, Gagnon, New Brunswick, Canada

Passed Away In: Big Pond, Nova Scotia, Canada Passed Away On: 12/04/2011

On Tuesday, April 12, 2011, Mom left this world to join our Dad, relatives and friends who are all waiting happily to welcome her to her eternal home. Claire was born in Bois, Gagnon, N.B., of parents Joseph Romeo 'Omer' Duguay, Bois Gagnon, originally Shippagan and Marguerite Thibodeau, Bois Gagnon, originally Neguac, Burnt Church, N.B. Claire is survived by sons, Clifford, Pictou, Hector Jr. (Claire), Sydney River daughter, Blanche (Dino) Sophocleous, Ben Eoin and sisters, Eva and Georgina, New Brunswick. She was predeceased by her husband, Joseph Hector, a son in infancy, sisters, Demerise, Maria, Suzanne, Laura, brothers, Elzear, Jean Baptiste, Joe, Pierre and daughter-in-law, Joan. In a family of nine siblings, she completed Grade 10 at regular school and at the age of 16, in 1937, went to work in Montreal taking care of little children at first, then seamstress working for Franz Blau, a Jewish friend and renowned owner of a textile plant in Montreal. Eventually Mom worked at the CIL plant making munitions for the efforts of the Allies engaged in the Second World War. Once the war was over she returned to her old home in Bois Gagnon. At that time she met the love of her life and future husband, Joseph Hector Morais, whose family was well known to Claire's folks and parishioners of the same St. Isidore Catholic Church. Shortly afterwards they took the train bound for Cape Breton and moved to the Gaelic speaking village of Drummondville, Loch Lomond, where Hector worked for his uncle at first, then bought out his uncle's sawmill, horses and logging equipment upon his uncle's return to New Brunswick. Claire worked in the logging camp providing homemade food, lodging and laundry services to a bunkhouse full of top-notch loggers - mostly brothers, in-laws, relatives or friends from back home. Claire preserved hundreds of mason jars full of wild game like deer, rabbit, pheasant, duck and pork etc, in preparation for the long winters ahead. In June 1947, the first child, Clifford was born in Loch Lomond, the first Frenchman in Gaelic speaking lands. Since there were no other children around, he became the novelty of the village which prompted the locals to visit and befriend the Morais family and a good excuse to prove their welcome for the newlyweds into a much different culture. Blanche was the first girl into the family in '52 which provided great comfort in the present and future years and especially after Dad died when Claire moved into Blanche and her husband's home in Ben Eoin, Cape Breton. A new house was hand built in Big Pond by the locals and relatives in '53 while they lived in a little cabin, Michael and Kay MacInnis of Big Pond Centre had so graciously provided for free, as they assimilated into now a mostly English speaking village. Another bouncing baby boy, Hector Junior came along in 1959, the baby of the family. Claire's creative spirit, artifacts, Cape Breton Tartan pleated shirts and skirts, McPuffins, handcrafts, Christmas stockings and so forth, plus her 48 rabbit pies every Christmas, were joyous creations for everyone to see or have in their homes. The short-lived basement bingos during the time of the building of the original fire hall, evolved into the Sunday ritual of flea-marketeering where Dad's bicycles and Mom's crafts and recycled clothing took off into a cottage business where new social alliances were made. She moved in with her daughter for several years until she made her last move into the Harbourstone Enhanced Care Nursing Home in Sydney River in 2005, until her sudden death. They were her extended family ?. Her angles. A celebration of Claire's life will be held on Saturday, April 16, 2011, at St. Mary's Parish Church in Big Pond. There will be a meet and greet at 1 p.m. followed by her funeral mass at 2 p.m. with Rev. Joe Gillis officiating. Interment/committal is weather permitting. A fellowship/comradeship following at the local volunteer fire department hall in Big Pond. Everyone is welcome. No flowers necessary. If so desired, donations can be made to the Big Pond fire department or help someone or a neighbour in need. Online condolences to www.twcurry.com. My Home It is my Mother Within her heart I live Her love is like no other The sunshine it does give. And like the spreading branches Of a truly fragrant tree My Mother's heart and arms Have made a perfect Nest for me.

Tara Ann Morgan

Born In: Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, Canada

Passed in: Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed on: October 25th, 2012

It is with extremely heavy hearts that we, the family, announce the passing of our precious daughter, granddaughter, niece and friend, Tara Ann Morgan on Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012, at home. Born in Glace Bay, she was the daughter of Fabian Morgan (Melissa Nearing) of Glace Bay, and Wanda Clements (Eugene Snow) of Chezzetcook. Tara graduated from Glace Bay High in 2006. She was an avid athlete throughout her high school years, excelling in basketball with the Glace Bay Panthers. Following her graduation, she took an interest in hockey. She could also be found, at any given time, working out in the gym. If it was sports/exercise related, Tara was there, eager to try something new. In earlier years, Tara was employed as a customer service associate with Wal-Mart and as an employee of the Tasty Treat. She also worked as a residential rehabilitation specialist in the communities of New Waterford and Reserve. Tara attended the University of Cape Breton and was enrolled in the science and art program. It was during this two-year period that she realized her true calling in life and set her sights on becoming a police officer. In 2009, that dream became a reality as she graduated from the Atlantic Police Academy in Prince Edward Island and in 2010 joined the ranks of the Cape Breton Regional Police Services as a constable. Tara had an extreme and unwavering love for her family and spending time with them was very important to her. She will fondly be remembered for her quick wit, sense of humour and for her ability to light up a room with her smile. Her positive outlook on life and her willingness to try and to embrace new things will never be forgotten. Tara faced all of life's obstacles, including her illness, with sheer determination and fight; she was in no way a quitter and she never complained or felt sorry for herself. Tara was, and always will be a ray of light to all those who had the pleasure of meeting her. Surviving, besides her parents, are paternal grandmother, Carmella Morgan, Glace Bay; uncles, Gurney Clements (Doreen), Reggie Clements (Cavelle), Randy Clements (Sylvia), Kevin Clements, Darren Clements, Jim Morgan (Leslie), John Morgan; aunts, Donelda Clements (Blair), Theresa Morgan (Dick), Rose Deveaux (Lloyd), Marie Morgan (Danny); numerous cousins, all of whom she considered her own siblings. Tara was predeceased by maternal grandparents, Ellsworth and Jeanette Clements. Visitation will be held Saturday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. in V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 16 Reserve St., Glace Bay. Funeral service will be held Sunday at 2 p.m. in Knox United Church with Rev. John Finlayson officiating. Burial will follow in Forest Haven Memorial Gardens. Tara's family would like to offer their heartfelt thanks to the nurses of the VON and Palliative Care for their exemplary care, warmth and compassion - because of you, Tara was able to remain home, surrounded by love and family. Memorial donations may be made in Tara's memory to the Victorian Order of Nurses or Palliative Care. Expressions of sympathy may be expressed to the family by visiting www.vjmcgillivray.ca.

The result of his life and work will be felt in the community for years to come. His wife predeceased him five years ago.

Morrison Adrian Morrison CBP 5/16/2012
Adrian R. Morrison, born June 14, 1957, in Sydney, lost his valorous battle with cancer on Monday, May 14, 2012. He fought for his life until the bitter end. His journey was not alone, his loving wife and soulmate Kathy was by his side and helped him deal with the insurmountable hurdles along the way. His children, while following his wishes of “normality,” strived to cope with the effects of his battle with love and support. Francis Maglario, Bernice Grant and many health-care team members worked to support his wishes. Adrian was a special person to all who knew him. Since his school days he was involved in hockey and played the game with numerous friends, more recently with the “Crazy Eights.” The after game chats and jokes with the guys in the dressing room were second to none. All through the years his relationship with his teammates was cherished. He worked for many years as a sales associate for local radio stations. He was fortunate to have the support and kindness from his employer, “The Giant,” and co-workers. Many friends enjoyed his practical jokes and fun sense of humour. He was well versed in many areas with a passion and great interest for music and history. He loved cars and took great pride in maintaining them and more importantly driving them. His “Goat” was the first and rightly so, his “Beemer” was the last. How does one describe a person so special to so many people? His wife, his children, his siblings and his friends all share a loss of words in answer to this question. He was an announced realist. He was a loving, easygoing person and always made those around him feel like no other. His “one liners” were awesome and were launched with impeccable timing. Simply put, he made each one of us “special.” His pride and joy was his family. He is survived by his wife, Kathryn (Hart); sons, Jason and Zack; daughter, Faye; granddaughter, Lenaya; brothers, Harry (Theresa), Donnie (Mary), Kevin and sister, Tisha; mother-in-law, Joyce; brothers-in-law, Bob (Gail), Gary (Marion); sisters-in-law, Sandra (Leo), Joanne (Brent); numerous nieces and nephews and grandnieces; as well as Sheldon Hanna, Barkley Haddad and many other cousins and friends. He is welcomed by his father, Alex T., mother, Mary, brother, Joe, father-in-law, Wallace and nephew, Troy. He wasn’t ready to go and we weren’t ready to lose him…so much to share. We loved him dearly and are heartbroken without him. We must now honour his wish for us to “be happy.” May his light always shine upon us, with us, in us. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society to help find a cure. Visitation for Adrian Morrison will he held on Thursday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel. A celebration of life will take place at St. Joseph’s Church on Friday at 11 a.m. with Rev. Everett MacDow officiating. A reception will follow at the Cedar’s Club.

"ANGUS J."

With the passing of Angus J. Morrison, Middleton has lost one of its most esteemed citizens. For forty years he has graced this town with his presence. A progressive citizen in every way - a builder, a keen business man, a friend and neighbor.

To many he was just plain "Angus" while to others it was "A. J.". No man hardly over passed or met our friend without stopping and exchanging, at least the time of day, but more often it was to converse.

His counsel and judgment was sought not only by the more mature, but by the younger generation. He was ever ready to extend a helping hand, to give the fruit of long experience and a word of cheer and comfort were always on the tip of his tongue. Words of bitterness never dropped from his lips. It can truly be said, those who knew him, were the better for it.

Wherever he wandered, he met friends who were glad to greet him. Possessing a wonderful memory he could call people by name and rehearse personal experiences with the.

He is gone, but the memory of him will be cherished for many years to come.

It is with deepest sadness and regret that we must announce the death of Eric Allister Morrison. He passed away in his Dartmouth home on Feb. 2, 2011. Eric is survived by his loving parents, Fran and Bill two older sisters, Jennifer (Michael Stainton) and Diane Morrison. He will always be remembered as a kind hearted boy who was able to get into some harmless mischief with his many friends. He was a special man with a wonderful outlook on the world and was always willing to help anyone in need. Eric's one true love was hockey. He played hockey for most of his life, including his last days with his very best friend, Sean Edwards. It takes a special kind of person to stand in a goalie net with pucks flying at you and to stand in the way of them to protect his net - this is the same approach he had with his family and friends. He had a gentle soul that gave him a special way with animals. A service will be held at Mattatall Funeral Home in Dartmouth, cremation to follow. Donations can be made in honour of Eric to suicide prevention or the charity of your choice.

Born on a farm in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, he was the oldest of 11 siblings. He walked five miles to a one-room schoolhouse every day before dropping out after fourth grade to help with farm chores.

Morrison Kenneth Morrison
4/25/1960 R. Fraser TRIBUTE TO KENNETH MORRISON Sydney Mines Tuesday morning, April 25th, a man breathed his last, a man whose work many thousands have viewed in Cape Breton with admiration and awe, whose beauty of soul was portrayed in his art. A Tall gaunt gentleman whose friendly eyes saw naught but beauty in everything, and who in his friendly way sacrificed many a leisure hour to help a friend in need. His restorative work on many statues and paintings have given them a beautiful and sometimes better luster than when they were first purchased. Many churches and building throughout industrial Cape Breton have been given the masterly work of this unpretentious gentleman. His passing will be mourned by the many people who knew him intimately, and his work a monument to his memory. May Kenneth Morrison be often remembered in our prayers. Joseph A D MacDonald

Morrison Sr. Domitilla Morrison Cape Breton Post 5/25/2005 Maureen McNeil Sr. Domitilla Morrison, Sister of Service, died peacefully at Providence Healthcare, Scarborough, on May 23, 2005, in her 76th years of religious life. Born in Sydney, N.S., on Sept. 4, 1909, she was one of seven children born to Joseph Morrison and Mary MacKinnon. She was predeceased by her brothers, Jonathan Allen (Elizabeth), John James, Ronald Hugh, her sisters, Sarah Ann Morrison, Mary (Angus) MacDonald and Mary Agnes (Hugh) MacNeil. Entering the Sisters of Service in 1929, the community, then seven years in existence, she was one of the pioneers who shaped and influenced its policies, values and traditions. Early assignments in the Immigration Ministry in Halifax, N.S., and Toronto, Ont., teaching in rural public schools in Manitoba and Catechetics in Saskatchewan, prepared her for a unique assignment - a request to set up and administer a religious education program in the diocese of Fargo, N.D., designed on the SOS model. As formation director for the community from 1945- 1954, she influenced, challenged and prepared a generation of Sisters of Service who continue to look on her as a friend and mentor. On her retirement from active missions, she studied library science at the University of Manitoba. For the next 20 years as archivist and librarian, she documented and catalogued the history and library resources of the community and laid the foundation for the present archival holdings of the Sisters of Service. With her passing, the SOS have lost a community icon, a wisdom figure, a reservoir of community history and dedicated servant of the Lord. She leaves to mourn in her passing her SOS friends across the country. Visitation will be held today (Wednesday) May 25, 2005, from 7 p.m. at La Salle Manor, 61 Fairfax Cr., Scarborough, Ont.

Morton Margaret Louise (Cullens) Morton Cape Breton Post 5/8/2010
Margaret Louise (Cullens) Morton

Born in: Birch Point South Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada
Born on: 03/03/1932

Passed away in: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Passed away on: 01/05/2010

Margaret Louise (née Cullens) Morton died peacefully in the presence of her immediate family at her Ottawa home on the first of May 2010 after a short illness.
Peggy, as she was known to family and friends, was born in the early hours of March 3, 1932 at the Cullens' family farm at Birch Point, South Cove on the shores of Cape Breton's Bras d'Or Lake to John Wimberly Cullens and Catherine Mae Cullens (née McInnis).
Her birth was attended by the near legendary Dr. C. Lamont MacMillen. In his book Memoirs of a Cape Breton Doctor (McGraw Hill Ryerson Limited, 1975) he described crossing the treacherous ice from Baddeck to deliver her, ending the story with "That was the night Peggy Cullens was born".
Peggy was schooled at home until she went to Saint Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. The following quotation from her 1951 graduating year book set the stage for her life:
"... a popular girl. At "X" for 4 years her unsurpassable wit and ability to be ever cheerful have made her well worth knowing. Peg is a Cape Bretoner who came in the fall of '47 to become a scientist. Behind her she had a high school diploma from correspondence course at N.S. Technical College as well as a prize for the highest provincial examinations for Victoria County, C.B. Away from test tubes she established her fame! Her lapel carries a Literary X for being M.S.B. editor then associate editor of the Xaverian Weekly. Her only vices were being vice-president of M.S.B. Debating Society and vice-president of senior class of which she was also secretary-treasurer. Far from being tongue-tied, so they tell us, Peggy played a minor part in dramatic productions. This not being satisfactory, she took over the stage and became owner of a Debating "B" ...it is certain that wherever she may be she will be like a "ray of sunshine on a cloudy day."
After graduating Peggy joined the fish inspection laboratories in Halifax during which time she met, then married Lt. John Patrick Morton, RCN on September 11, 1954 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. After bearing a son, John, her husband's career took them to London England, then Portsmouth and then to Weymouth, England where her daughter, Ann, was born. In 1959 they returned to North America and the family spent several years alternating between Ottawa, Dartmouth and Norfolk Virginia.
Upon settling in Ottawa in 1969 Peggy obtained her Masters Degree in Library Science from the University of Ottawa. She was then employed in various federal government departments culminating as the Canadian Department of Agriculture's Director of Libraries responsible for about 16 scientific libraries across Canada.
After retirement she become a 'full time granny' to Diane, Pat and Erika and spent much of her summers gardening at the family cottage. Peggy also got tremendous pleasure through her travels to unique parts of the world.
Peggy is survived by her husband, John Patrick Morton, her two children, John Aitken Morton (also delivered at Baddeck by Dr. MacMillan) and Margaret Ann Randall; by Ann's children Diane, Patrick, and Erika; and also by her brothers John Cullens, Neil Cullens and their families.
Acceding to her often stated wishes there will be no ceremony and her ashes will ultimately be buried with her husband's in the Morton family plot, Union Cemetery, Barrie, Ont.
