It is with deep sorrow that we, the family of Anna Elizabeth Naddaf, announce her passing on Sunday, July 25, 2010, at the Northside General Hospital, North Sydney. Anna has been a resident of the Northside Community Guest Home for a number of years.
Anna was born in Bras d'Or in 1922 and was a daughter of the late Thomas and Bertha (Boudrot) Cantwell.
After her marriage in 1942, she moved to North Sydney where she lived the rest of her life. She was a member of St. Joseph Church, North Sydney. For many years Anna was a stay-at-home mom where she had her hands full raising eight children. After the death of her husband, Anna entered the workforce for a few years but because of ill health she was forced to retire. For many years, she was the Avon Lady to many people living in the area. After she sold her home on Blowers Street in North Sydney, she moved into the apartments at the Northside Guest Home where she looked after herself until she entered the home to be cared for by the nurses and staff members. She felt at home there where she spent half of her life volunteering and assisting the patients.
Anna is survived by her daughters, Carole (Blair) Meating, Sydney Mines, Maureen Serroul, North Sydney, Paula Walsh (Ken White), Montreal, Linda (Vic) Mizzi, Sault St. Marie, Ont., Nancy, Toronto; her sons, Gerard, Adjula, Ontario, and Kevin (Hugh Wakeham), Toronto; also by her brother, Gordon Cantwell, North Sydney, the only surviving member of her immediate family and her sister-in-law, Mary Naddaf, North Sydney. She was blessed with many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews that will miss her greatly.
Besides her parents, Anna was predeceased by her husband, Abraham (Abe) Naddaf, who died in 1978, her son, Paul Naddaf in 1999, her brother, Raymond Cantwell, sisters, Clara, Muriel, Mary and Bertha, her son-in-law, Cyril Serroul.
There will be no visitation. Cremation will take place. A funeral mass will be held at a later date with burial at Holy Cross Cemetery, North Sydney.
Anna was an active volunteer with St. Vincent de Paul and Northside Food Bank. In lieu of flowers we ask that donations be made to either of the two organizations.

"God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around you, and whispered “Come to Me”.
With tearful eyes we watched you, we watched you fade away.
Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands now rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best."

John), Marion Bridge, Carol Walsh (Robert), New York City; 10 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

First with the engineering firm of Armstrong Wood in Toronto, designing sophisticated weaponry for the Armed Forces, then to the National Research Council in Ottawa. In the 1940s he was part of an international team (New Zealand, Russia, Germany, U.K.) that designed and constructed the first nuclear reactor (code-name ZEEP) to go critical outside the U.S. This was the beginning of the Chalk River project and Canada's nuclear program.

Nearing Elizabeth 'Betty' Nearing  CBP 10/5/2010
It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of a cherished wife, loving mom and grammy, dear sister, sister-in-law, aunt and friend, Elizabeth Louise 'Betty' Nearing, 76, on Oct. 2,  2010 following a lengthy, courageously battled illness.  Born in New Waterford, April 23, 1934, she was a daughter of the late Grant and Hilda (MacPhee) Campbell.  Until recently, Betty resided with her family on "Carpenter's Hill", River Ryan, and was a devout member of St. Leonard's parish. Receiving her early education in New Waterford, Betty graduated from Holy Angels Convent High School and in 1954 from Nova Scotia Teachers' College. She taught Grades 3 to 6 at Saint  Agnes Elementary School in New Waterford. In 1960, she met Louis, her husband-to-be and best friend, and they married on July 1, 1961. Following the birth of her first child, she took a hiatus from teaching, choosing instead, to be a stay  at home wife and mom. She returned to teaching in the early 1970s in the New Waterford and area schools as a substitute. Much of her time was spent at the school directly across the street  from her home, St. Michael's Elementary. In 1988, Betty officially retired from teaching when she became a grammy, a role she could not wait for and adored. Most of all, Betty loved her family and friends and the pleasure of their company. We always knew there would be a feed of spaghetti and meatballs when we came home (Mary's recipe circa  1971) and most certainly a cup of tea and a little something to go with it. Betty especially enjoyed attending her niece, Dana's wedding in Ottawa in September 2007, as this was a great  opportunity for a family reunion. She was a well-known woman of few words and one who never complained ... a trait that was clearly evident as she so bravely faced each health challenge. Surviving are her loving husband of 49 years, Louis; her children, Shannon (Alan Cameron), Halifax, and Stephen (Renee), McMinnville, Tenn., U.S.A.; granddaughters, Lauren Cox, Shelby  Nearing, Layne (Chad) Mullins and Grace Cameron; brother, Lionel (Vivienne), Ottawa; sister, Mary (Connie) Morrison, Sydney; brothers and sisters-in-law, Fran Campbell, Greg (Norma)  Nearing, Joan (Charlie) MacLean, Karen (Art) Fraser; 19 nieces and nephews and dear caregivers, Gloria, Lorraine and Jennifer McNeil, whose presence made it possible for her to remain at  home as long as possible.She was predeceased by her siblings, Maureen Anthony and Kevin Campbell, sister-in-law, Frances 'Cookie' Nearing and brother-in-law, Reg Anthony. Visitation will be held Wednesday, Oct. 6 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 Betty will take place  Thursday, Oct. 7, at 10 a.m. in the Parish Church of St. Leonard, Mount Carmel Avenue, with Fr. Doug MacDonald officiating. Cremation will follow with burial in St. Michael's Cemetery at a  later date. A luncheon will be held in the Carmel Centre immediately following the funeral mass. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association, the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Nova Scotia or a charity of one's choice.  Online expressions of sympathy may be sent to the family at www.vjmcgillivray.ca. "The Angels sang "Amazing Grace", The Lord came down and touched her face. He held her hand and whispered low, Come with Me it's time to go. The gates of Heaven opened wide And the angels lined up side by side. A special gift was on her way, The day God took her home."    10/2/2010 New Waterford, Nova Scotia, Canada 
Nearing Gregory Charles Nearing Cape Breton Post 11/20/2009
Gregory Nearing, Lethbridge

Born in 22/09/1961 at Glace Bay , Nova Scotia , Canada

It is with deep sadness that we, the family of Gregory Charles Nearing, 48, announce his unexpected passing on November 15, 2009 at his home in Lethbridge, Alberta.
Born in Glace Bay, September 22, 1961, and raised in Reserve Mines, he was the son of the late Basil and Margaret (MacDonald) Nearing.
Gregory is survived by his wife Diane Buckland; sons David and Thomas; daughter Sara (Jason) Hood and grand-daughter Avah Gray Hood; brother David (Paula) Nearing; sister Marion (Bill) Turner and nieces and nephew Amandah, Megan and Brandon.
Gregory graduated from Reserve District High in 1979, Saint Francis Xavier University in 1982, and Dalhousie Law School in 1986. He was called to the bar of the Northwest Territories in 1987 and to the bar of Nunavut in 1999. He practiced criminal law and worked as a crown prosecutor and defense attorney. He also held the position of Executive Director of the Legal Services Board of the Northwest Territories for a number of years. He served as Treasurer and President of the Northwest Territories’ Law Society prior to the Territories separation, President of the Nunavut Law Society and various positions with the Canadian Bar Association.
By far the most significant position he held was not one with an official title - it was his unofficial role as mentor to young counsel. Gregory always took the time to assist young lawyers -whether it was on a particular file, helping them adjust to practicing law for a living, or helping them deal with personal issues. His genuine kindness towards all who knew him and unselfish compassion for those less fortunate than he, had no limit.
His quick wit will also be sadly missed.
Cremation has taken place. Visitation with will be held on Monday, November 23, at the V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 16 Reserve St., Glace Bay, from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. The Funeral Mass of Resurrection will be celebrated at Saint Joseph’s Church, Reserve Mines, Tuesday, November 24 at 1 p.m. with Father Robert McNeil officiating. A reception will follow in the parish hall, with interment at Saint Gregory’s Cemetery, Donkin.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or charity of choice.

I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found the peace at the close of day. If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joys, A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss. O yes, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow. My life’s been full, I savored much, Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch. Perhaps my time seems all too brief Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts, and peace to thee. God wanted me now; He set me free. 7/7/1999 Born in Glace Bay

Irene Neil
Born In: Sydney Mines
Born: October 25th, 1929
Passed in: North Sydney
Passed on: June 24th, 2013
On Monday, June 24, 2013, Irene Gertrude Neil passed away peacefully at her residence with her family by her side. She fought a brief but courageous battle with cancer.
Irene was born on Oct. 25, 1929, in Sydney Mines, the daughter of the late Richard and Martha (Confiant) Cox.

Irene formerly lived most of her life on King Street in Sydney Mines and later remarried and moved to North Sydney, where she resided the past 39 years.
Known as “I” by most of her siblings, Irene was always there to listen, put the teapot on, maybe give some advice and a lecture on the side. Her kitchen was always the gathering place for everyone. Mostly a homemaker, she was a very hard worker at a very young age taking care of her parents and siblings. As children there was never a missed Sunday that we didn’t all pile in the car with Grannie and go to Sydney to visit her sister, Marion.
Irene’s pastimes included grocery shopping, driving her car as much as she could, baking and occasionally going to the casino. Hope you get the seven’s, Mom! Always a caregiver to somebody, she was devoted to her family and always gave a lending hand when she could. She will be sadly missed by all.
Irene is survived by her two daughters, Shirley Ford and Mary Lou Ford; her grandson, Rob (Colleen) MacKinnon; her siblings. David (Nellie), John Cox, Harold (Jane) Cox, Clifford (Cathy) Cox, Michael Cox, Louis Cox, Bob (Bridget) Cox and Marion MacKinnon, as well as nieces, nephews, cousins and special friends.

Passed in: Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed on: May 20th, 2013
On May 20 we lost one of our finest examples of a true gentleman. Joe Nicholson passed away in his sleep surrounded by family in Truro.
It was a privilege to share time with Joe. He was the epitome of selflessness, always placing the needs of others before his own, especially his family for whom he was so devoted. Hearing the daily exploits of his grandchildren made him light up with pride.
Besides his enduring love for his family, the powerful constant throughout his life was his deep and unwavering faith. Joe was a humble, prayerful man. He was a rock.
Joe started a forty-four year career in coal mining at age 16 to help support his family after the passing of his father. From there he began contributing to his community in so many ways including as a volunteer firefighter for 36 years, as a minor hockey coach and as a member of the Knights of Columbus. He was also a member of bowling leagues, dart leagues, Dominion Seniors Club and an active member of St. Eugene’s Roman Catholic Church. He was also one of the founders of the Shamrock Club in Dominion, which began under its original owners as a not-for-profit club to raise money for charity. In 2002, Joe and his wife Teresa were recognized by the Dominion Hawks Club for their many contributions to their community.
Joe was predeceased by his parents, John ‘Jack’ Nicholson and Christina (McNeil) Nicholson; special aunt, Florence, who lived in New York; brother-in-law, Neil Burroughs.
He is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Teresa (McKinnon); son, Joe and daughter-in-law, Angele; granddaughters, Sophie and Chloe; sister, Carmel Burroughs; nieces, nephews, godchildren and friends.
While we all feel the tremendous loss of such a wonderful man of such high integrity, we celebrate our good fortune to live our life alongside him.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Mattatall – Varner Funeral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro, where Joe’s family will receive friends from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., Thursday, May 23, 2013, with a prayer service at 8 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated 11 a.m., Saturday, May 24, 2013, in St. Eugene’s Roman Catholic Church, Dominion, Fr.

He was 47 years of age and a native of Jersey Cove, near Englishtown, Victoria County. He is survived by a wife and six children. Death occurred at the residence of his mother in law, Mrs Christina MacKay, widow of Dr. William MacKay.

Resigned Charge - Ill health finally forced him to resign his charge and later Rev Mr Nicholson and family moved to Hopewell, where he acted as pastor for a time. Continued ill health, however, caused him to return with his family to Reserve where they took up residence at the home of Mrs MacKay. The late Mr Nicholson was a man of fine character and unusually popular with all classes and denominations here. His death is regretted, the sympathy of the community is tendered the bereaved family.
