Today our hearts are broken. Our lives will never be the same. Today we lost our mother, grandmother, wife, and best friend. God called her to his home above, among the clouds up high, to be a guardian angel with dancing blue eyes.
A mother of great beauty with tender loving hands and wisdom far greater than we could understand. A woman we called "Mother" with the greatest of respect left us when God said, "May Belle you need to rest." He wrapped His arms around her and gently called her name, as He will do for all of us when we will meet again.

Numerous former students have expressed their admiration and appreciation for her positive contributions to their lives. In 1953, she became one of the founding members of the St. Joseph's CWL and continued to be a member until her death. She loved reading, playing cards with friends, traveling, and "bingo" was her favourite word. Most importantly, she enjoyed spending time with her family and was an excellent listener and mentor.

CECILE-MARIE) - Sister Anne Samson passed away at the Provincial House of Les Filles de Jesus, 553 Elmwood Drive, at the respectable age of 113 and in her 87th year of religious profession. According to the latest studies, she was the eight oldest person on the planet. Born in Riviere-Bourgeois, NS, on Feb. 27, 1891, she was the daughter of Thomas Samson and Philomene Bourque. She has survived her five sisters, and four brothers. However, she has nieces and nephews who have expressed the wish to assist at her funeral. Sister Anne made her Normal School in Truro around 1912. She then taught on Cape Breton Island, mostly in Poulamond, on Isle Madame. At the age of 24, she entered the novitate at Trois-Rivieres and became Fille de Jesus in 1917. Sr. Anne spent her teaching career in Arichaat (23 years) and Cheticamp (seven years). From 1947 on, her health some what failing her, she had to quit teaching and take a time of rest. In as much as her strength allowed her, she filled various offices in Trois-Rivieres, Nash Creek, Dalhousie and Moncton. She took her retreat at the Provincial House in Moncton in 1967. No one would have guessed that she would have such a long retreat. In 1991, she celebrated her 100th birthday, and we had the joy of having her with us 13 more years. At times, she wondered if the Good Lord had not forgotten her on this earth. Sr. Anne was very talented and composed poems and songs for different occasions, some even after her 100th birthday. However, from 1986 on, she was unable to walk due to a hip fracture. And since 2003, she was bedridden. She was called to meet her Saviour on Monday, November 29, 2004.

Abraham Schwartz died one day before Irving's third birthday, leaving Rose to run the business and raiseSix children. She was more than up to the task, and although Irving spent one semester at Mount Allison University and another at New York University, he often said he was a graduate of theRose Schwartz School of Business. Irving made his first of many buying trips to Montreal at age 13. Over the years, Irving owned or invested in a diverse range of businesses, including a hotel, nursing homes, a cable TV franchise, computer software companies, a clinical research company,  a wireless Internet service provider, various real estate holdings, a coal mine reclamation company, and the furniture and appliance store that bears his name. At the time of his death, he was president of the Seaside Group of companies, with operations in cable TV, wireless Internet, software development, and clinical research.

He was a current or past director of Ocean Nutrition Canada Ltd., VirtualMedia Productions, Halifax Biomedical, and Green Images. In 1970, Irving helped develop an oyster farm at the Eskasoni First Nation, and four years later, he managed a trout farm for the Cape Breton Development Corporation. Irving was a pioneer in the expansion of high speed internet services to rural areas. He led Seaside's participation in the ambitious project to provide high-speed Internet access throughout  Nova Scotia - the first jurisdiction in North America to offer universal broadband access. Seaside will complete its part of the project, covering the nine counties of northern Nova Scotia and  Cape Breton, by year's end. Irving also served as president of the Children's Aid Society, president of the Lions' Club, chairman of the board of governors of the University College of Cape Breton, co-founder of Junior  Achievement in Cape Breton, director of the National Theatre School of Canada, advisory board member of the Dalhousie School of Business, and chairman of the Cape Breton Chapter of the  Hebrew University. He was a longtime member of the National Capital Commission, and volunteered with the Nova Scotia Division of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award. He served on the boards  of the Nova Scotia Business Development Corporation, the Sydport International Free Trade Zone, and the Nova Scotia Community College. Of all these volunteer activities, he was perhaps proudest of his 12 years service as a volunteer firefighter in New Waterford. Irving founded and operated the non-profit Canadian International Demining Corps, which carried out land mine removal operations in many countries around the world, and was part of the  impetus for his 1997 investiture in the Order of Canada. In 2003, he was named an officer of the order. At the time of his initial investiture, Governor-General Romeo LeBlanc cited him as, "a staunch supporter of educational institutions, notably the University College of Cape Breton, Dalhousie  University's School of Business, and the National Theatre School of Canada ... He is dedicated to the eradication of the use of land mines and the reclamation of mine-polluted land for  productive use by indigenous populations," the citation said. When Irving was named an officer of the order six years later, Governor General Adrienne Clarkson described him as, "a visionary entrepreneur and committed philanthropist (who) has madeSignificant contributions to Cape Breton. Irving Schwartz has invested resources, time and expertise in local knowledge-based companies, helping to diversify and develop the island's  economy." In eastern Nova Scotia, Irving was well known for fronting television commercials for his furniture and appliance company, always ending with the tag line, "I guarantee it!" Once, while travelling in Bosnia in support of demining operations there, he encountered a group of Canadian peacekeepers and asked if any were from Cape Breton.  "I guarantee it," one soldier replied. In 2002, Irving was awarded the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal, and the following year was inducted into the Nova Scotia Business Hall of Fame. He was also an inductee of the Cape Breton  Business Hall of Fame. At the time of his death, he had been designated to receive a lifetime achievement award from the Canadian Home Furnishings Association. In 2008, he received the degree of Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, from Dalhousie University. Diagnosed with cancer in 2008, Irving managed to turn even that bad news into a positive achievement. He headed a successful $5.5 million fundraising campaign for the Cape BretonRegional Hospital's cancer unit. He declined suggestions that he seek treatment at prominent U.S. medical centres, insisting he would get better care in Cape Breton. Through several operations and chemotherapy treatments, he continued to work full time, at one point returning to his office three days after surgery. He spent the day before his death working  at the furniture store, and attended Yom Kippur services at the Temple Sons of Israel Synagogue in Sydney Friday evening. In a statement Saturday, Premier Darrell Dexter said Irving's "legacy as a community leader and philanthropist will be the achievements for which he is most remembered." Deputy Premier and fellow New Waterford native Frank Corbett said, "Cape Breton was very fortunate to have a leader like Irving Schwartz. His passion for life, family and community will beSorely missed." Irving loved to engage friends and strangers alike in conversation and storytelling. The door to his office at the furniture store was always open, and saw a constant stream of visitors, from  titans of industry and politics to coal miners, school teachers, and homemakers. He was known for quietly offering advice and assistance to scores of Cape Bretoners starting out in business or  facing business difficulties. His funeral will take place Monday at 11 a.m. at the Membertou Trade and Convention Centre, 50 Maillard St., Sydney, with burial to follow at the Hebrew Cemetery on Lingan Road. No flowers, please.

Shannon Ruth Shannon CBP 2/26/2014
Ruth Shannon

Born: March 26th, 1943

Passed in: Shannara
Passed on: February 23rd, 2014

It is with profound sadness and heartbreak we announce the passing of our wonderful, caring mother, grandmother, sister and lifelong soul mate, Ruth Shannon on February 23, 2014. She passed away peacefully with her children and husband by her side, at her home and most cherished place, Shannara, in Long Point, Nova Scotia.
“Ruthie” as she was affectionately known, was born in Whitney Pier on March 26, 1943. Her birthmother Mary (McDonald) Cameron passed away when she was only 2 years old. Her father, the late Nevin Cameron (1965), who she greatly loved and admired, remarried Christina Mae Cameron, who raised her and remained a great and warming influence in her life until she passed in 2005.
She was loved and respected by all those who knew her. She left a lifelong impression with just one encounter with her genuine warmth and smile. She was as comfortable at Rideau Hall as she was with her hands full of soil in her garden at Shannara. She was always the classiest lady in the room, her style and grace only being out done by her ability to make those around her feel comfortable and welcomed.
More than anything else, she dedicated her life to her family. She epitomized the saying, “behind every great man stands a great woman”. She was a dedicated and caring wife to Joseph Shannon who together built a strong and loving family. Her children, Joel, Mark (Patti), Bruce, Jennifer (Joe) White and Jason (Kari), adored everything about her and her memories will be with them forever. She was the type of mother who loved her children equally and unequivocally. She provided her family with storybook summers at Long Point with countless visits from friends and relatives all summer long, playing games, eating fresh vegetables from her garden and sipping hot chocolate into the late evenings, ensuring everyone wanted for nothing despite having no electricity or running water.
She loved her grandchildren as if they were her own children. Jessica, Samantha, Kristina, Cameron, Daniel, Mathew, Joseph, Marcus, Ryan, Jarrett, Sarah, Emily, Julia and Gregory have all been blessed with her influence and they will never forget her generosity and their wonderful times with her at Shannara.
She is also survived by her siblings Helen Munro and Rev. Ronald (Jean) Cameron. She was predeceased by her three sisters Margie (Henry) Mackenzie, Evelyn Wood and Marie MacLeod and her brother Buddy Cameron.
Over the years she was supported wonderfully by her physicians, surgeons and nurses. It seemed like she was always the most popular patient in care as they seemed to learn as much from her as she from them. There are too many to mention by name or by unit, however she would like all those who helped over the years to know she was very grateful and the family feels blessed for the time we had with our Mom as a result of their efforts.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada or the Arthritis Society. Visitation will be held at Dennis Haverstock Funeral Home, 724 Granville St., Port Hawkesbury on Friday, February 28, 2014 from 2 to 4 pm and 6 to 8 pm. A Celebration of Ruth’s Life will be held at the Judique Community Centre on Saturday, March 1st at 11:30 am. Words of comfort may be forwarded to the family at: www.haverstocks.com.

Karen Holm Shaw86, New Waterford Karen Holm Shaw, 86, of MacLeod Avenue, formerly known as Maple Hill, where she was raised, passed away peacefully at home on Jan. 9, 2009. Born in New Waterford, she was a daughter of the late Hans and Petrine (Pedersen) Holm. Karen was born on Wood Avenue in 1922. At the age of eight her family moved to 'Maple Hill.' She began her musical career at the tender age of four. Her older brother Gordon taught her to play piano, accordion, mandolin and banjo. Later, with her sister Gloria, she learned to tap dance as a pupil of Doris MacDonald. In her early 20s, Karen again followed her brother into the Canadian Army and was stationed in numerous locations. After the Second World War she served overseas, during the occupation of Germany, as a police woman at Nazi trials. While overseas, Karen met Stewart B. Shaw who later became her husband. Married in 1946, the couple moved to the town of Arnprior, in the Ottawa Valley where they resided for nine years. During daylight hours they owned and operated Mainview Photo Studio. Karen also became a member of the well-known orchestra, 'Mac Beattie and the Ottawa Valley Melodiers,' and performed several times a week at various venues including CFRA Radio. Somewhere between photography and music she also found time to be Girl Guide commissioner. Karen returned to her hometown of New Waterford in 1956 with baby, Elizabeth (Betty). She continued her careers in photography and music, managing Meyer's Photo Studio in Glace Bay and performing in variety shows and on radio and television with well-known local musicians. Mom was an honorary lifetime member of Cape Breton Professional Musicians Association Local No. 355 and was a longtime member of the Everett Cann Orchestra. Mom really enjoyed working and 'playing' in her numerous flower beds and had a real love for the many birds that she fed year round. Being a very spiritual person, Mom had deep respect for God and His written Word, the Bible. After several years of Bible study she was happy to become a baptized member of the Glace Bay Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses. From 1972 until her passing she always thought it a privilege to share her knowledge of the Bible and her hope for the future with friends and neighbours.

Sadie was born on May 01, 1919 and expired at Glace Bay General hospital. Sadie was the daughter of the late Joseph Currie and Sarah MacIntyre of the Sterling and attended St. Anne's Parish and school and (the old) Glace Bay High. She was the beloved sister to the late Allie, Dannie, Peter Currie and Kay Currie (Wadden). Sadie Shaw was an active and vibrant parishioner of St. John the Baptist Parish in new Aberdeen. Over the years she led a leading role in the parish and parish/school development and was for a number of terms president and vice-president of the Catholic Women's League (C.W.L.) and she actively took a leading role in the hosting, preparation and carrying out of the Regional C.W.L. Diocesan Convention at St. John parish - the first for the Parish. A number of years ago she received a C.W.L. pin for 25 years of service. She represented the Parish ont only at the Diocesan C.W.L. conventions but also frequently attended conventions at the Arch-Diocesan level in Halifax, N.S. After many years as president, she assumed the roles of secretary and treasurer and vice-president. She did numerous articles, agendas and reports on the C.W.L. for the Cape Breton Post and the National C.W.L. Monthly. She was also equally active and presided for years in maintaining and recruiting membership for the St. Anne's Sodality. In this capacity she initiated and collaborated in leading the parish in evenings of prayer, afternoons of recollection and recital of the Family Rosary. Following her terms of presiding she was secretary and treasurer. She always saw to it that the elderly and sick members were not forgotten and received cards and special prayers to assure them of the League's/Sodality's support and love. Sadie not only organized but jumped right in when it came to cleaning, scrubbing and polishing the Church and Auditorium for liturgical and social events. She left a tremendous model of faithfulness, hard work and dedication not only to her family but also to her collaborators. It was just a natural part of life for Sadie Shaw to make, purchase and provide clean altar cloths and clergy/altar boy suplies for her parish - her family. In the late 1940's and early 1950's, when a family was economically deprived and suffered the loss of a loved one - especially a child, Sadie was there to help prepare the body for its final resting and to provide for burial necessities and support the family. In later years she assumed an active role in the Ladies Guild and did plenty of embroidery and sewing works for the various functions over the years. Sadie will be fondly remembered for her dedicated work and long hours of cooking and baking for the "Bake Sales" and "Teas" and serving numerous meals at the various weddings. Fall Fairs and extensive fund raisers for the Parish and old Parish Camp. Although tired, she would not leave until she helped wash dishes. She dedicated with joy, hours of knitting and crocheting articles, especially in her later years for the various functions along with her handmade ceramics. She gave untiringly of her talents and organizational skills and spiritual expertise in her more active years. For Sadie Shaw the Church knew no boundaries. She was a pioneer in the start of the Citizens Service League (Town House); clothing depot and child care. She pioneered with the Warden United Church minister in new Aberdeen to solicit a room for child daycare. This was done in the spirit of Ecumenism. She freely gave of her time and talents and volunteered long hours in the inception of the Citizens Service League, spearheaded collecting clothing for the poor and food and gathered faithful women to give of their time to the Day Care/Child Care freely. She was active in St. Anne's/ St. Michael's home and school and represented St. John's Parish. For years Sadie was active in the evening sewing classes at Central School and received diplomas and also she partook and was successful in the Red Cross First Aid Survival Course and CPR for which she received a diploma. As a young lady Sadie (Currie) Shaw studied financial accounting at the Coady Institute of St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish and worked at the Coady Credit Ynion with the late Mike Cambell. She also took courses at the St. Francis Xavier University Estension Department and served her community/world faithfully. Ailing health over the past few years "forced" Sadie to a more passive but important role, She gracefully assumed the role of prayer ministry more intensely and prayed and financially supported her parish family from her home. She was a professed Third Order Carmelite and partook of their many Rosary recitals, Masses and special events. Sadie loved to entertain and share, when she could, her many cooked and baked goods and enjoy a sing-song around the family piano and enjoyed Sister ellen Donovan's frequent home "ceilidhs." She enjoyed her card and bingo games and affiliations with T.O.P.S. and ceramics and her frequent trips and vacations on the lakes at Ben Eoin. In the hospital Sadie was loved by all and was recognized as a woman of total yes to all that came her way, especially this last. She was appreciated and respected as a woman of giving and acceptance with a smile, a woman of Grace. her life reflected her love for her God and her fellow companions. She looked forward to the parish missions. Sadie was the beloved wife of the late Leonard A. Shaw (who died in December, 1959) and dear mother of seven children. She was rpredeceased by sons Sgt. Thomas A. Shaw, Joseph L. Shaw, and an infant at birth. She is survived by two sons, Sheldon P., vice-principal at Central School, Leonard F., assistant manager of the N.S.

Shaw William ‘Bill’ Simon Shaw, Dr. Cape Breton Post 8/29/2009
Dr. William Shaw, Antigonish

Born in 20/10/1924 at Glace Bay , Nova Scotia , Canada

With deepest sorrow, Mary Barbara and family announce the death of their beloved husband and father, William ‘Bill’ Simon Shaw.
Born in Glace Bay, NS, Bill was the first son of Simon Shaw and Johanna Morrison. He attended St. Anne’s Catholic School, proceeding to St. Francis Xavier University (St. F.X.U.) at the age of 16, earning an Engineering Diploma and a Physics degree in 1945, and there meeting his life long love, Barbara.
His studies at X were interrupted briefly in 1944 when he was accepted to the Armed Forces as a Lieutenant for the Pacific Theatre, stationed in Vernon, BC. After the Second World War, Bill studied at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and completed a PhD in Geoscience.
In 1950, Bill and Barbara were married and spent their summer as newlyweds in Joggins, NS, where Bill worked for the Geological Survey of Canada in NS and then in Ottawa, ON, where his two elder children, Harry and Margaret, were born. He was later employed as a petroleum geoscientist for Standard Oil of California in Trinidad, South America, where his two middle children, Joanne and Bill Jr. were born. From Trinidad, Bill moved to New Orleans, Louisiana where Bill partnered with two geoscientists in the consulting firm of Rogers, Seglund and Shaw. With his partners, he pursued petroleum prospects in Louisiana, Texas and Latin America. In Southern Louisiana, two more children were born to the clan – Elizabeth and Edie.
In 1967, an offer by St. Francis Xavier University of a full professorship resulted in Bill and family returning to his much loved Nova Scotia. From 1968 to 1995, Bill inspired legions of student geoscientists and engineers who have ventured out into many regions of Canada and international posts. Concurrently, Bill invested his energy in several petroleum and natural resource projects in the Maritime Provinces. In the early 1980s, Bill directly served the people of Nova Scotia as Deputy Minister of Mines and Energy, and as a consultant on the Royal Commission for Post-secondary Education. At the federal level, he served on the National Advisory Board on Science and Technology. In Antigonish, Bill served on the St. Martha’s Hospital Board, as president of the Antigonish Highland Society and more. He and other local “thinkers” created a men’s group, the “Romeo’s”,that met to discuss current local and world events. For many years, every Saturday morning, Bill and several dear friends, “the Senate”, met to contemplate solutions to world issues.
To his children, he was the consummate father – a source of love, encouragement, and unfailing support; he was the anchor of his family. Bill had a deep passion for sailing, golfing and above all, his wife and partner of 59 years, Barbara. Throughout his life, he personified the spirit of his favorite credo, “Desiderata”, going “placidly amid the noise and the haste”, speaking his “truth quietly and clearly”, and finally “gracefully surrendering” to his leaving.
Bill is survived by his loving wife, Mary Barbara (Palmer); his six children, Harry, BC; Margaret (Joseph Chernosky), Maine; Joanne (Louis Plazzer), BC; William (Sandra), Antigonish; Elizabeth (Brian MacGillivray), Antigonish; Edie (Michael Ewald), Halifax; his grandchildren: Adam, Joanna, Peter, Andrew, Luke, Mairi, Emma, Lauchlin and William; his sister, Camilla MacDonald, Glace Bay, and brother-in-law, Currie Palmer, London, Ontario.
He was predeceased by his siblings, Clifford, Mildred and Blair.
Visitation will be at MacIsaac Funeral Home on Monday, August 31 between 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral services will be at St. Francis Xavier University Chapel, Antigonish on Tuesday, Sept. 1 at 11 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Bill’s memory can be made to the Dr. William S. Shaw Earth Science Scholarship created in Bill’s name for a student pursuing a degree in Earth Science at St. F. X. www.MacIsaacs.ca.
The family thanks the staff of St Martha’s Hospital Palliative Care Unit, Hospital in the Home and the Antigonish Homemakers for their great care and kindness.

Born in Glace Bay, N.S. to Margaret (MacLean) and George Shears, a safety officer in the coal mines, Art was influenced both by his father’s work and work ethic and the difficult times in which he and his five siblings lived. He attended Morrison High and then with support from his family he entered Acadia University in 1943. While there, he studied two years of pre-med and developed a lifelong love for his Alma Mater. In 1945 he entered Dalhousie Medical School and, shortly thereafter, he met the beautiful Dorothy Claire Bulmer at a Phi Rho fraternity dance. They married after he graduated in 1950. He always said that “they danced their way through life”.
The couple returned to his hometown of Glace Bay where Art began a busy practice in family and industrial medicine. From his experiences with both workers and returning war veterans, Art identified the need for programs that would achieve better functional results for the seriously injured. He chose to train in the emerging field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) at the University of Toronto. His residency training was done in Halifax, Toronto and as a clinical fellow at the Massachusetts’s General Hospital in Boston. He received his certification in the specialty of PMR (1956), and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (1972).
Returning to Halifax in 1956, he accepted the position of the Founding Medical Director of the Nova Scotia Rehabilitation Centre. Two years later, he initiated the Royal College residency training program in PMR in Halifax. Later he established rehab clinics for polio, cerebral palsy, amputations, spinal cord and athletic injuries. He was founder and Medical Director of the Dalhousie School of Physiotherapy (1963 to 1975) and was appointed Professor and Head of the Division of PMR (1977 to 1989). The author of many scientific publications and an inspired educator, he ran a busy physiatrist practice in Halifax, as well as a monthly clinic in Glace Bay.
A true visionary in Rehab services, Art served as President of the Internal Medicine Society of Nova Scotia and of the Canadian Association of Physical Medicine. He served as Board Chair for many organizations including the Nova Scotia Polio Foundation, N.S. Crippled Children’s Society, the Canadian Paraplegic Association, Canadian Arthritis and Rheumatism Society, N.S. Cerebral Palsy Association, the International Spinal Cord Injury Research Symposium, and the Specialty Committee in Physical Medicine and Rehab of the Royal College.
The University of Saskatchewan and Queen’s University honoured him as a visiting professor. He was selected as a Member of the Scientific Review Committee for the Rick Hansen Man in Motion World tour Legacy Fund. He was further honoured by his colleagues with the establishment in 1998 of the annual Arthur H. Shears Lecture in PMR through The Rehabilitation Endowment Fund, at the QEII Health Sciences Centre. In 1989 he received a Doctorate of Civil Laws from Acadia, the honour of which he was most proud. His community involvement at First Baptist Church included trustee, Chair and member of the Finance Committee and member of the men’s choir. Art was a member of the Board of Directors of Acadia for many years. However, Dr. Shears was best known in his community for his early morning 7 mile run through the streets of Halifax, a daily ritual until well into his seventies. It was during these runs, which changed to walks in his later years, that he connected with fellow Haligonains to tell his story, obtain theirs, or share a joke. He enjoyed tennis with his good friends and playing golf in Chester and, later on, with the G.A.S.P.E.R.S at Ashburn. Art was a lifelong learner and an avid reader, with an innate curiosity about the world around him. His lifelong interest in business evolved in to a second career as a savvy investor.
A role model in many ways, he was an expert in balancing his passions: work, family, personal wellness and community. Most importantly, he was a gifted and generous family man. Devoted to his children and his grandchildren, he instilled in them those foundational values by which he lived: the importance of family, education, physical fitness and always treating fellow human beings with respect and dignity. Whether at the family cottage at Hubbards teaching little ones how to waterski, play chess or tennis, and sail, or in one-on-one chats, he encouraged all to reach their full potential. His particular joy was being serenaded by all his musical grandchildren at our annual summer reunions at Rosewood on the Cove. Throughout it all, as a loving and generous husband, he appreciated the role that his Dorothy played in his success and knew none of it would have been possible without her at his side. He leaves an inspirational and meaningful legacy to all of the lives he touched. Godspeed Dad.
A memorial service will take place on Saturday, May 25, 2013 at 10 a.m. at First Baptist Church, 1300 Oxford St., Halifax. A reception in the church hall will follow the service.
The family would like to express our deepest appreciation to all those who cared for Art with such skill and compassion since his stroke last July. In particular, special thanks go to all the extraordinary caregivers through Always Home. We send our heartfelt thanks to Orinthia and Simone, his Jamaican angels, for the gift of eight additional months with him.
Family flowers only please. In Art’s memory, donations may be made to the Canadian Paraplegic Association, QEII Health Sciences Centre Foundation: The Rehabilitation Endowment Fund or by cheque to Cape Breton Miners Museum, P.O. Box 310, Glace Bay,N.S., B1A 5T8.

Shears Margaret A.M. Shears, Q.C. CBP 4/30/2012
Margaret A.M. Shears, Q.C., died at home on April 27, 2012, in the loving arms of her husband and daughters with other grieving family members by her side. Margaret was the wife of Barry Shears for 27 years, a period filled with constant and devoted love that they shared with their two daughters, Alison and Siobhan, her pride and joy. She was born and educated in Antigonish, graduated from St. Francis Xavier University in 1978 and subsequently obtained her law degree from Dalhousie Law School in 1981. She was designated as a Q.C. in 2008. Margaret worked in the public service of Nova Scotia for a number of years and was vice-chair of the Utility and Review Board at the time of her death. She was a dedicated and loyal colleague to all those in her work environment. Margaret was committed to using common sense when making decisions and her love of writing enabled her to convey them in understandable language for the general public. Margaret was involved in many professional and cultural organizations, including the Canadian Bar Association, Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society, Nova Scotia Advisory Council on the Status of Women, Royal Nova Scotia Historical Society, and a founding member of the Halifax Gaelic Society. However, her overriding love and attention during her life was to her husband and daughters. The girls meant everything to her and she loved and respected both of them, and was so proud of their success in education, music, travel and love of family. Her husband, Barry, was truly the love of her life and their marriage was a wonderful exchange of love, quick wit, and much humour. They shared a love of Celtic music and the Gaelic language, which she began to learn in 1975 in order to speak to her grandfather in Gaelic and English. She was so proud of Barry and his musical and authorial accomplishments and often provided editorial advice — whether requested or not. He was incredibly supportive and caring during the seven years of her illness. He, as well as Alison and Siobhan, will miss her deeply. Along with her husband and daughters she is survived by her mother, Mary Jane (Dede) Kelly, Antigonish; sister, Elaine, New York City; brothers, Michael (Elinor), Halifax, Derek (Theresa), Ottawa; several nieces and nephews and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. She is also survived by her mother-in-law, Evelyn Shears, Glace Bay, and Barry’s sister and brothers. She was predeceased by her sister Patricia Joanne and her father Joseph Patrick Thomas Kelly. The family will receive friends on Monday, April 30, 2012, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at J.A. Snow Funeral Home, 339 Lacewood Dr., Halifax. Memorial service will be held Tuesday, May 1, 2012, at 2:30 p.m. at St. David’s Presbyterian Church, 1544 Grafton St., Halifax. Family flowers only, please. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. Please visit www.jasnowfuneralhome.com. 4/27/2012

Shepherd William Shepherd Sydney Post Record p 8 7/28/1941 R. Fraser DEATH OF SYDNEY MINES RESIDENT WIDELY MOURNED Sydney Mines, July 26 - The death occurred at 11:15 pm on Friday evening of one of Sydney Mines' most highly esteemed residents, William Shepherd, at his home on Fraser Avenue, following a weeks illness. Mr Shepherd, accompanied by his wife, had been spending a few weeks at the summer home of their son, Daniel Shepherd, at Murray, N.S., when he was suddenly taken ill on Friday last. He was immediately rushed to his home at Sydney Mines, and medical aid summoned, but shortly after his arrival he became conscious and then only for a few minutes. The deceased was born in Scotland in 1866, coming to Sydney Mines 36 years ago, where he was employed at Princess colliery. At the end of that time he retired. He was of a quiet and retiring personality, but a man of great talent. As a poet, he composed many poems which have been published in many magazines throughout Canada, and in his homeland. He was also an artist of no mean ability, and since retiring from active work, gave his time to this work, putting many beautiful Cape Breton scenes on canvas, which have received praise from many critics. He was also a musician and spent many hours with his violin. In religion he was a member of St Andrew's Presbyterian church, and while not prominent in outward appearance in church work, was a true member of the faith which he professed. He was a loving husband and father, a good neighbor, and a kind friend. Surviving are his wife, five sons Daniel of Glace Bay, James of Boston, William, John and David of Sydney Mines, one daughter, Mrs Janet Baillie, of Glace Bay, three sisters in Toronto, a brother in Scotland and one in Winnipeg. The funeral will be held on Tuesday at 2:30 o'clock at the home. Interment at Lakeside cemetery. REGRET DEATH OF WILLIAM SHEPHERD Glace Bay, July 26 - Their many friends are extending sympathy to Dan Shepherd, Duncan street, and his sister, Mrs Jeanette Baillie, in the death of their father, the late William Shepherd. Mr Shepherd passed away at his Fraser Avenue home on Friday evening after a week's illness. The late Mr Shepherd spent the previous two weeks at Murray, C.B., where he was the guest of his son and daughter in law, Mr and Mrs Dan Shepherd, and returned home when he became ill. He was very well known in town where he visited often, making a host of friends who will regret to learn of the death of the fine old gentleman. Mr Shepherd's artistic talents were splendidly developed and he had completed much work in the realm of oil painting as well as in writing poetry. His oil paintings, most of which dealt with Cape Breton scenery, which was very close to his heart, are skillfully executed with keen attention to detail and careful blending of color. One of his largest paintings hangs in the General Hospital nurses residence where it has been admired by visitors since the opening of this building. In the line of poetry he has written many clever verses, which have been published in several newspapers and magazines. His subjects were generally taken from personally known incidents and nature studies of Cape Breton and were widely read. [Sydney Post Record Monday 28 July 1941 p 11]

Shwery Blanche Eva Shwery CBP 7/12/2011
It is with a broken heart that I announce the peacefully passing of my Mother andn best friend Blanche Eva Shwery at her residence on Kings Road, Sydney on Sunday, July 10, 2011. She is now reunited with Dad ‘Ted’ and my brother Leo. Born in North Sydney, Eva was the daughter of the late Richard and Debia (Kasouf) Rahey. She was a member of St. Joseph Church in North Sydney and recently St. Anthony Daniel Church in Sydney. First and foremost, Mom valued her family and her Lebanese culture. Her strength, intelligence and generosity were only equaled by her warmth, kindness and passion for living. She was an extremely independent woman. She was a tower of strength to me. She become a widow at the young age of 42 and 10 years later her son passed away at the age of 18 years. From that day forward, Mom and I continued our life’s journey together and enjoyed travelling (especially to Las Vegas each year). Family and friends were visited, near and far, in Michigan, California, Egypt, Lebanon, British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Mom was a nurturing and loving person. Following the death of her mother (Debia Rahey), she became the “unofficial” matriarch of her family. Her door was always open — her hospitality unequalled. For Mom, one of her great pleasures was cooking and serving a 4-5 course Lebanese meal followed by socializing with her guests. She was an excellent communicator who was comfortable interacting with people from all walks of life. Mom followed in the footsteps of her family (three generations of entrepreneurs). She and Dad owned and managed “The People’s Dairy” (your present day convenience store) in the business section of North Sydney. After my Dad’s death, she worked for several years with her brother Raymond in his General Store in Sydney Mines. Her love for cooking lead her to setting up a home-based business (Eva’s Lebanese Kitchen). She made and sold Lebanese food and her customers were from various parts of Cape Breton, mainland Nova Scotia and also Newfoundland. She was a proud entrepreneur who worked hard to provide a quality product that people never forgot. In recent years, I would tease Mom saying that she could have been another “Peninsular Farm” if she had patented her yogurt made from scratch. Her response was “I just wasn’t meant to be rich” and then she would laugh. Mom was especially proud that she was asked by the town of North Sydney to cater (1,200 people) for its centennial celebration. Mom was also active in her community. She was a tireless and dedicated volunteer. For many years she was a member of St. Elizabeth Hospital (presently Northside General) Ladies Auxiliary. She volunteered in the hospital canteen and in coordinating fundraising events, such as, Lebanese suppers and dances. Her involvement in the local auxiliary lead to her being appointed Zone Chairman for Cape Breton. Mom was a people-person and in this position she enjoyed travelling to various parts of Nova Scotia and meeting people. Eva is survived by her loving daughter, Marcellina ‘Marcie’ Shwery-Stanley, Sydney, and her two brothers, James R. (Jamal) Rahey, North Sydney, and Carl (Linda) Rahey, Toronto. She will be dearly missed by her many nieces and nephews and friends. She was predeceased by her husband, Theodore ‘Ted’ and son, Leo Shwery and by her brothers, Raymond, Arthur ‘Iser’, Nicholas ‘Olie’ and sisters, Isabel and Marie. Words cannot express the appreciation those who helped call and comfort my mother as illness overcame her in recent years. The fact that her dignity and many aspects of her daily routine were maintained until almost the very end will always be a comfort to me. I would like to thank the many people who helped Mom over the years, especially during her time of illness. Special appreciation is extended to her private caregivers ,“Her Girls”, as Mom called them. They were an extended family to me. Also thanks to City Homemakers and the VON. Visitation for Eva will be held from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Wednesday in the W.J. Dooley Funeral Home, 107 Pleasant St., North Sydney. A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday in the funeral home chapel with Rev. Patrick O’Neill officiating. Burial will follow in Holy Cross Cemetery, North Sydney. Memorial donations may be made to Hospice Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton. Following the funeral a reception and celebration of her life will be held at the North Star Inn on Forrest Street, North Sydney. Online Condolences may be sent to www.wjdooley.com. A memorial mass for Eva will be held at a later date. 7/10/2011 North Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada

Sirois Mariette Jeanne Desjardins Sirois Cape Breton Post 9/17/2009
Mariette Sirois

Born in 21/08/1919 at St. Andre de Kamouraska , Quebec , Canada

She was our Mom and we loved her deeply.
Mariette Jeanne Desjardins Sirois was born August 21, 1919 in St. André de Kamouraska, Quebec. She overcame tuberculosis in her youth and married Roger Sirois in 1942. Mariette bore seven healthy children. She was a devoted mariner’s wife and a loving mother. She placed more value in enjoying a sunny afternoon, knitting or browsing a National Geographic magazine than in lining up the cups or dusting the deep corners of the family room. She volunteered for decades, first with the United Way and then with the Northside Guest Home.
Mariette enjoyed classical music and sang in the choir of Saint Joseph’s parish in North Sydney for many years, her creative outlet and spiritual haven. She knew how to make chicken salad out of chicken scratch and played bridge and solitaire until her end on September 13, 2009.
Mariette is survived and lovingly remembered by her children, André (Maisie Stacey), Jean-Marc (Linda Boulianne), Francis, Léopold (Joanne Brogan), Bernard (Mary Hick), Stella-Marie (Gordon LaRusic), Roseline (Don Barrie); brother, Paul (Marie-Paul Dumond); sisters, Angélina (Paul Chamard) and Monique (Marcel Côtes); 10 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
On her 90th birthday, she had the opportunity to visit in North Sydney with her long time friends; they shared all the trials and tribulations of bringing up large families. And, loved it too.
She’s now resting peacefully with her husband in the “where-after” and will forever be in the heart of all her children.
Cremation, per her wishes, has taken place and a memorial service will be held at a later date at St. Joseph’s Church in North Sydney.
Condolences for mom should be forwarded c/o S.M. Sirois, 5866 Cabot St., Halifax, NS, B3K 2K1; smsirois@ns.sympatico.ca.
She’s been our front liner for her later years at the Halifax Northwoodcare. And, they also cared: we thank all the staff for their ongoing attention.
