Spending time with her family, enjoying the many hours spent in hockey rinks, gyms, soccer, baseball and football fields being a proud Nana and cheering on Bruce, Dena and their teams. Mom loved visitors, she entertained many friends over the years and we can honestly say no one ever left her home hungry. Mom was an amazing cook. Summers were her favourite time. She was happiest on days spent on the family property atNorthside East Bay on the Bras d’Or Lakes where everyone was always welcome. She loved travelling the Bras d’Or Lakes by boat with her family and everyday commented just how beautiful the scenery was. In the winter, Mom loved snowmobiling on trails all over Cape Breton, she thoroughly enjoyed the outdoors. Mom had a genuine love of animals especially their Samoyed, Nanook. Mom was a person who put everyone else before herself. She was very kind and generous and more than willing to lend a helping hand or words of encouragement. Mom always managed a positive approach. We are a family of strong faith and we know Mom is reunited with her family in Heaven and will be watching over all of us. Visitation for Marie O’Leary will take place at T.W.

Remaining mentally alert and considerate to the very end, she was able to tell her family to "be good" and that "she loved them". Nana's generosity was only exceeded by her grace. Dorothy is survived by four daughters, Catherine, Florence (Gerald) Penny, Jean (late Joseph) MacPhee, Patricia (Frank) Dairou and two sons, Francis (Corry) O'Brien and Ronnie O'Brien, all of Sydney. Nana's passing is also mourned by her grandchildren, Lorne, Kevin, Jeannie, Christopher, Michael, Tracey, Janice, Lesley, Crystal, Theresa, James and Kyle. Nanny O'Brien will be sadly missed by her great-grandchildren, Amanda, Michael, Patrick, Christina, Katrena, Cameron, Jacob, Liam, Sarah Jean and Kayleigh, and her great-great-grandchildren, Grace, Sophie and Alexis. Besides her parents and husband, Jim, Dorothy was predeceased by her first husband, Stephen Dollimount, five sisters, Stella, Florence, Esther, Blanche and Elizabeth and four brothers, Allan, George, Jim and Rueben. The family is deeply indebted to her family physician, Dr. Estelle Cameron and nurse Shelley Martin for their care and compassion over many years which allowed Dorothy to remain at home until the time of her passing. Dorothy received loving care from her many wonderful home care providers of Cape Breton County Homemakers. The family also extends their gratitude to Dr. Ann Frances D'Intino, Beth Latham RN, and Brenda Yates RN of the Cape Breton District Palliative Care. The family wishes to express a special thank you to daughter-in-law, Corry O'Brien RN for her loving care and devotion to Mom. Thank you to the registered nurses of the VON, especially Loren Pemberton RN, for their visits and also to Helena Lawrence of Family First Medical for her prompt attention to Dorothy's needs. Appreciation is also expressed to Fr. Lloyd Dwyer and Fr. Donald MacGillivary for attending to Dorothy's spiritual needs. Visitation will be held from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 1 at S.W. Chant & Son Funeral Home, Sydney. Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 2 at St. Anthony Daniel Church, Sydney, with Fr. Donald MacGillivary officiating.

60, Glace Bay Now gone but forever in our hearts we announce the passing of Thomas James O'Brien Jan. 10, 2009, at Cape Breton Regional Hospital's An Cala Palliative Care Unit. Born in Glace Bay, Sept. 2, 1948, he was the son of Alphonse and Viola 'Lu' (Walsh) O'Brien. Tom was a proud serving member of the Canadian Forces for 30 years. Throughout his career, Tom was posted to many different units and locations in Canada and was a member of the Peacekeeping Force in Ismalia and the Golan Heights. His hard work and dedication allowed him to achieve the rank of captain, prior to his retirement in 1996. Although retired, he still loved the military life and looked on with pride as several of his nephews and a niece chose the military as careers. Aside from his professional achievements Tom will be fondly remembered for his love of sports. Upon his retirement, he took up the game of golf and could be found every morning on the greens of Passchendaele Golf Course, honing his skills. His newfound love of golf was in constant competition with his admiration of the ice rink and right up until his illness, he still spent time playing hockey with the boys as a member of the Bayplex Relics. Besides his parents, Tom is survived by his loving wife, Karen (MacKinnon); his daughters, Shannon Parsons, Halifax, Colleen O'Brien and Paula Sudworth, both of Glace Bay; two grandsons, Ethan, Calgary, and Jensen, Halifax; sisters, Marie Egerdeen (Ike), Kitchener, Ont., Annette O'Brien, Donna O'Donnell (Martin), Sheila Burke (Mike), Vera O'Donnell (Joe) and Paula Parsons (Johnnie); brothers, Jack (Nancy), Wayne (Martha), Mickey, all of Glace Bay; many nieces and nephews and life-long friend, John Morris.

O'Brien Veronica O'Brien Cape Breton Post 06/03/2008
Veronica O'Brien 1918-2008 Sydney - It is with deep sorrow, yet great joy, that we the children of Veronica Josephine O'Brien, announce the return of our mother to her God. In her 90th year, surrounded by many of her children, she left this world on Tuesday, March 4, 2008, from her residence at Harbourstone Enhanced Care Facility, Sydney, N.S. Born in the Polish community at Whitney Pier on May 18, 1918, she was the daughter of the late John Stephen and Veronica (Planetta) Wludyka. In 1938, at St. Mary's Polish Church, she married our father, Howard John O'Brien. Their union of 51 years, backed by a strong faith, brought forth a family of 19 children; 11 daughters and eight sons. Our father passed away July 9, 1989. A life of deep abiding faith in the Catholic tradition, the Mass and her love of the Blessed Mother, sustained her. It is impossible to relate the many charitable acts our mother has performed and she certainly would not appreciate our doing so. Her life was one of work, simplicity, strength, prayer, guidance, endless caring for others, unlimited love, forgiveness and action. With very little time on her hands, mom saw what had to be done and she did it. Her parting words to many of us, upon leaving home for good, were, "Never forget, God always provides." We cannot say you were one in a million, it is too small a number when referring to you mom. Loving you always, we thank you. Your children XO.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Carmella O'Handley, an amazing mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, on Oct. 3, 2013, at the Niagara Hospital in St. Catharines, Ont., surrounded by her loving family.
Born and raised in Dominion, she was the daughter of the late Cecil and Flossie O'Handley.
Left to mourn are her children, Tanya (Chris) and Keith (Angie). She will be missed terribly by her grandchildren, Jon, Autumn, Brianna, Kyleigh and Calem, who were her pride and joy. She is also survived by her sister, Debbie Campbell, Reserve Mines; brothers, Dannie (Margie), Dominion and Cecil, Glace Bay, as well as aunts, uncles, numerous nephews and one niece. Also left to mourn is her special friend, Wilfred, and many life-long friends.
Mom had many gifts, but one of her greatest gifts, was her big heart. If you knew her, she has touched you in some way. Whether it be her angelic voice, or her compassion for others. She walked by no one in need and left no stone unturned. She judged no one, and only hoped for the same. She lived her life to the fullest, no matter what obstacle she was faced. She had a passion for singing since she was a small child. One of her biggest goals was for her voice to be heard like a wing on a prayer, and now it will be. She always wanted to leave a legacy for her grandchildren, and that she has done.
Cremation has taken place as she wished and a memorial service will take place at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to the Children's Wish Foundation.
She now leads the heavenly choir and is finally at peace.

It is with great sadness and heavy heart that we announce the sudden passing of Geraldine O'Handley, Saturday, Aug. 28, 2010 of Dominion Street, Glace Bay. Geraldine was involved in a motor vehicle accident. She was returning home from Inverness following the celebration of her 39th wedding anniversary.
Born May 5, 1951, she was a devoted daughter of Gerald 'Chub' and Ruby (LeMoine) Billard of Catalone, previously of Atlantic Street, Glace Bay.
She married the love of her life, James 'Jimmie' O'Handley on August 28, 1971 at Immaculate Conception, Bridgeport and up to the day of her passing, Geraldine dedicated her life to her three daughters, Shauna O'Handley (Adam Glabay); Elizabeth O'Handley; and Andrea Ignacio (Eugene Ignacio).
Geraldine is survived by four siblings, Gary and his late wife, Maureen Billard, Glace Bay, Sandra and her husband, Karl Fifield, Sydney, Terry and his wife, Lynn Billard, Port Morien, and Judy Billard, Catalone. She is also survived by her husband's family, Sheila O'Handley, Newfoundland, Babe and her husband, Murray Wadman, Florida, Anna and her husband, Billy Kuta, Glace Bay, Elizabeth and her husband, Brad Holmander, Massachusetts, Matthew O'Handley and his wife Mary, Glace Bay, John Charles O'Handley, Ontario, Paul and his wife, Debbie O'Handley, Bridgeport and her godchildren, Robbie (Laddie) Kuta, New Zealand, Roy O'Handley, Bridgeport, Jessica Billard, New Brunswick, Leanne Billard, Newfoundland, Angela Fifield, Halifax as well as her many nieces and nephews.
Geraldine gave selflessly to her husband and daughters through uncompromising love, support and care. She touched the lives of many children. When her daughters were growing up she put her heart and soul into the work she did with Passchendaele Brownies as part of the Girl Guides of Canada movement. Geraldine will also be remembered fondly by the many neighborhood children of Dominion Street who referred to her as 'Ma'. When her children finished school, Geraldine followed her lifelong ambition of working with the elderly and in 1997 completed the Personal Care Worker program at Marconi Campus, graduating first in her class. Since this time she has enriched the lives of the residents, their families and her colleagues at the Seaview Manor and will be remembered for her one of a kind sense of humour, inexhaustible energy and relentless determination. Geraldine will also be missed by the Friends of the Seaview Manor, a volunteer group she worked with for over 25 years.
Geraldine took a great sense of pride in maintaining her home for her family and it is her wish that visitation be held at the family home, 248 Dominion St., Glace Bay on Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2010 between 2-9 p.m. The Rite of Christian Burial will take place Thursday, Sept. 2, 2010 at 11 a.m. at her parish church, St. Anthony's, Dominion Street, Glace Bay with Fr.

Joseph Edmund O'Keefe

Born in: Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, Canada
Born on: 04/02/1932

Passed away in: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed away on: 11/03/2010

It is with heavy hearts and utmost sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our father, grandfather, brother and friend, Joseph Edmund O’Keefe on Thursday, March 11, 2010, at Melville Lodge Nursing Home, Halifax, surrounded by his adoring family.
Born in Glace Bay, Feb. 4 1932, Joe was the son of the late Patrick and Anne (Petrie) O’Keefe.
Joe attended St. Anne’s school in Glace Bay and after graduation took a year off to decide his profession. He decided that teaching was his goal so he attended St. FX Junior College in Sydney for two years. It was during this first year that Joe met and fell in love with Claire Purcell, the love of his life. He then went on to St. FX and graduated in 1955 with his BA and in 1956 received his B.Ed. He then taught in Sydney at Sacred Heart School and for many years taught math at Sherriff Jr. High. Joe had a passion for encouraging and supporting the students that he taught and decided he would like to pursue a career as a guidance counsellor. He attended summer school at the University of Maine for four years and received his qualifications for this career change in 1966. He then accepted a position as guidance counsellor at Sydney Academy and would later earn the title of director of guidance, a position he held until his retirement in 1991.
Joe was a valued hockey coach for Sherriff Jr. High boys and led them to many victories. Joe also worked diligently on the board of the Children’s Aid Society of Cape Breton for many years, serving as president of the board for a three-year term. One of his successful projects was re-establishing the boys’ group home in New Waterford.
Joe was a dedicated family man who adored his wife, daughters and grandchildren. He felt blessed to have his bungalow in Northside East Bay, where all of us spent many summers on one of his many boats, feeding on steak and lobster, hosting bonfires, dart tournaments and parties. Dad’s favourite day to celebrate was St. Paddy’s Day, as he was extremely proud of his Irish heritage.
Joe is survived by his four daughters, Margaret Anne Pickup, Colleen (Francis) Lynk, Sydney, Sharon (Michael) Boutilier and Alison (Dennis) Wadden, Cole Harbour. Also surviving are his precious grandchildren, of whom he couldn’t have been more proud, Jeanne Pickup (Mike MacDonald), Cole Harbour, Janet Pickup (Evan Nemeth), Halifax, Jamie Wadden (Grampie’s hockey protégé), Cole Harbour, and Tyler MacIntyre, Sydney.
Also surviving Joe are his brother and sister-in-law, James and Jessie O’Keefe, Glace Bay; sister-in-law, Sarah Belanger, New Britain, Conn.; brother-in-law and longtime best friend, Robert Purcell (Annette), Coxheath, the father of his granddaughters, William Pickup, Coxheath; special grandnephew, Joshua Lynk and dear friend Paul Sullivan, Halifax. Also, many nieces and nephews, each of whom held a special place in his heart.
Joe was predeceased by his wife, Claire (Dec. 17, 2009), sister, Moira, brother, Gregory in infancy, in-laws, Duncan and Anne Purcell, sisters-in-law, Margaret MacPherson and Margaret Purcell, brothers-in-law, Jack Purcell and Gilles Belanger, and by his special first grandson, Michael Joseph Boutilier.
Visitation for Joe will be held from 7-9 p.m. Monday, March 15 and 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Tuesday, March 16 in T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel, 755 George St., Sydney, 539-3002. Funeral mass Wednesday, March 17 in St. Theresa’s Church at 10 a.m. with Fr. Norman MacPhee officiating with burial in Resurrection Cemetery, Sydney Forks.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Diabetes Association would be graciously accepted.
Dad, we know that we will forever feel your presence and love with us and we take great comfort in knowing that you and Mom are together again ... forever. We are proud to call you Dad.

Nick Oldale

Born in: Liverpool, Nova Scotia, Canada
Born on: 16/05/1936

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

With great sadness, we announce the passing of Nick Oldale at the An Cala Palliative Care Unit of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital on March 3, 2010.
Nick, son of the late Harry and Evelyn Oldale, was born in Liverpool, N.S., May 16, 1936.
Nick is survived by his loving wife, Lorna (McIsaac); sons, Scott (Elaine) and Steven (Tracy), both of Calgary; daughter, Jan (Terry) MacGillivary, of Sydney River; his brother, Philip (Joyce) and sister, Carolyn; sister-in-law, Elizabeth Ritcey and brother-in-law, John McIsaac and their respective families. Papa Nick experienced great pride and joy in the athletic, musical and academic accomplishments of his eight very special grandchildren, Katelyn, Benjamin, Jackson, Bradley, Christian, Rylea, Carter and Nicholas.
Nick graduated from Acadia University receiving BSc (1958) and MSc (1959) degrees in geology. While at Acadia, he was a member of the varsity hockey, football and rugby teams. He started his career in Schefferville, Quebec as a mining geologist with the Iron Ore Company of Canada (IOC). In 1965, his family moved to Sydney River. He began his teaching career as an instructor at the Eastern Nova Scotia Institute of Technology and retired in 1993 as a professor in the Science and Mineral Technology Departments of the University College of Cape Breton (Cape Breton University). He was involved with several mining industry associations and activities. He was a former president of the Mining Society of Nova Scotia and has received several citations for his contributions to the organization. He acted as a divisional director of the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (CIMM) and was chairman of its annual general meeting in Halifax 1995. He was also a member of the Association of Professional Engineers of Nova Scotia (APENS). His community spirit was evident as a member of the Sydney Rotary Club where he served as president and director and was named a Paul Harris Fellow for his dedication and contribution. Nick was an adherent of the United Protestant Church of Sydney River where he served on several committees. Nick was an avid sportsman within the community. While a member of the Sydney Curling Club, he participated in many local and provincial bonspiels and with his wife, represented Nova Scotia at the Canadian Mixed Championship in 1971. He spent many years as an organizer and leader with the local Dorados Swim Club and was actively involved with the Nova Scotia Swimming Association. He was an active and proud member of the Sydney Combine Oldtimers Hockey team and a keen skater with the local adult skating group.
Nick’s special ‘piece of heaven’ was his summer home on the Bras d’Or Lakes known affectionately as “Benoco”. Here, summer after summer, he watched his grandchildren grow from infancy. He was a man of nature enjoying all its beauty and serenity and it was at Benoco where he enjoyed nature’s offerings from the land and sea. Respectfully known as “the gatherer”, he gathered fish from the lakes, vegetables from his gardens, fruit from his orchards, fiddleheads from the woods and berries and mushrooms from the fields. His great pleasure was preparing gourmet meals of seafood and fresh vegetables for family and friends. The varied activities of Benoco were special for him and these special activities will be remembered and cherished dearly by his family.
The family would like to acknowledge and thank the wonderful staff of the Palliative Care and Cancer Centres of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital for their excellent care and compassion during Nick’s illness. The family would also like to extend a personal thank you to Dr. Murdock Smith.
Memorial donations can be made to the Palliative Care Center or the Cancer Center of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital and to the Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation.
Visitation will take place at the Sydney Memorial Chapel at 49 Welton St., Sydney on Sunday, March 7, 2010, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. The funeral service will be held Monday, March 8 at 2 p.m. at the United Protestant Church of Sydney River, 1524 Kings Rd., Sydney, with Rev. Dana Feltmate officiating.
Condolences may be sent to the family at sydneymemorialchapel@ns.sympatico.ca.
When tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart. For every time you think of me I’ll be right there in your heart.

I pray they don't,but if they do, Then each and every one, Will mark the eternal resting place, Of a brave, Canadian son. - Joseph Oldford,RSM,DCM

A self taught carpenter, Gerard completed many pieces of beautiful furniture. One special project over the past two years was the construction of a 17 foot canoe.
In 2005 Gerard relocated from Halifax to assist in the care of his parents. Living minutes from his sister Beverly, they enjoyed many happy times entertaining Rudy and Bessie on outings, in their homes and at Harbourstone.

Frances (Powell) Oommen
Born In: United Kingdom
Passed on: May 8th, 2013
My name is Frances Oommen (née Powell) and I died May 8, 2013, in Inverness, N.S., after an exciting and eventful life.
I was born in the United Kingdom on June 8, 1947, and had many twists and turns before ending up on Cape Breton Island.
I truly found my calling by studying occupational therapy, working steadily from 1968 to 2011. One of my first jobs took me to India with Voluntary Service Overseas where I worked at JJ Hospital and then the Centre for Spastic Children in Bombay. It was there I met my husband George.
We decided to leave India after Indira Gandhi passed the draconian Maintenance of Internal Security Act (read a Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry).
We chose to live in Canada and immigrated here in 1976. I worked at Henderson Hospital in Hamilton, Ont., and finally I put down roots. My son Thomas Michael was born in 1978 followed by my daughter Mary Margaret in 1981.
I subsequently worked in home care but following the privatization of my workplace by Mike Harris I moved to Sydney, N.S., with Mary in 2002 and took up a job at Glace Bay Hospital.
In 2008, I was privileged to purchase a beautiful property in Centreville in Inverness County and worked part time at Inverary Manor, my last and most special employer.
Happily Thomas joined me in 2008, and has made his home here with his wife Jane Gesner. In July 2011, I became a grandmother to Felix Elwyn. I spent my last years surrounded by my precious family and I never thought that would happen!
Throughout my last years I chose to remain positive and to support my immune system while living with four types of cancer. I rejected the conventional treatments of chemotherapy and radiation which weaken one’s immune system and remained healthy to the end. My death was peaceful and on my own terms. I’m very grateful for the support of palliative care, the Inverness County Home Support Society, many natural therapy practitioners and the staff of Inverness Hospital. I truly received holistic health care.
I ask that any condolences be in the form of a donation to the Central Inverness County Palliative Care Society.
There will be a gathering to celebrate my life for my friends and family on my birthday Saturday, June 8, 2013, from 3 p.m. at my home, 2152 East Skye Glen Road, Whycocomagh, N.S., B0E 3M0.
Thank you for making my life so special.

She died while Mora was a baby leaving her and two sisters, Margaret and Jean. Donald's second wife, Anna O’Brien, was as a mother to the three girls. Donald and Anna had three boys.
Mora was predeceased by Margaret (Duvalle) and is survived by Jean (Duplisea), Halifax; her brothers, John Hugh Ross (Sheila), Halifax, Peter Ross (Mary-Jane), North Sydney and Norman Ross in Sydney Mines. She leaves her husband, Robert (Bob), St. John's; daughters Katherine, and her husband, Bill Nesbitt, Hamilton, and Mary and her husband Steven Foreman Pamona/Claremont, California and grandson, Myles Robert Foreman, just born in February 2013. It is impossible for them to imagine Mora not being present in their lives.
Possessed of a formidable intellect, Mora had an innate ability to cut to the heart of the matter. Neither fad nor frippery obtained in her court. Mora was a Beaverbrook Scholar and studied at the University of London. She earned her M.A. and B.Ed. At Mount Allison University, Sackville, N.B. Mora was a born teacher. In the early 1960s she was involved with the establishment of major work classes for gifted students in the Halifax school system. After the family moved to Toronto in the early 1970s she stayed at home, seeing Kate and Mary into their early teens. Mora then found employment with the National Ballet School of Canada as Vice-Principal of the academic programme. She soon became Principal and continued in that position until her retirement. She fully embraced that remarkable experience and the school embraced her. She loved the students and never took their special talents for granted. Upon retirement, Mora and Bob moved to St. John's, attracted to Newfoundland by its beauty and peace, the sea and the sky. Their hopes were rewarded and hardly a day went by without a few shared words about their good fortune.
As Mora wished, her remains have been donated to the Medical Faculty of Memorial University to support of their teaching programme.
A gathering of friends and family will be held in Toronto on May 31st from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at The National Ballet School's Currie Hall, 105 Maitland St., and in Halifax on June 14th from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Dalhousie University Club, Dalhousie main campus.
