Smith Anabelle 'Cookie' (English) Smith Cape Breton Post 11/26/2009
Anabelle 'Cookie' Smith, Glace Bay

Born at Whitney Pier , Nova Scotia , Canada

“Be Merciful even as your Father is Merciful” LK 6:36
We are so heartbroken to announce the passing of our loving mother Annabelle, the best friend we could ever ask for. She passed away peacefully Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2009, surrounded by her children who poured out unconditional love to her.
Annabelle was a daughter of the late Edmund and Sophie (MacKinnon) English.
Born and raised in Whitney Pier, she later moved to reside in Glace Bay, where she raised her family. A very strong-spirited woman, she always maintained strength through her faith.
“Everybody in life has a cross to bear, some heavier than others. When you think you can’t carry anymore the Lord carries for you”. Mom was our Rock - her strength, her love and her heart were given to us all. Her life was dedicated to her family; always placing her needs last. She always told us children that we were closest to her heart. A very strong-willed and private lady, she gave because she wanted to give; never expecting anything in return. Everything came sincerely from the heart. Her morals and values are instilled in her children today; and hopefully, will carry into future generations. We love you mom.
An avid quilter; each stitch done with love to those who received; she loved to garden and always thought “weeds are an endangered species.” During her illness, she took strength in her Rosary and in trying times from her devotion to St. Anthony.
She is survived by her only son, Hugh, Jasper, Alta.; daughters, Emeline (Rubin) Forbes and Annabelle (Kevin) Dowe; grandchildren, Jason and Sarabeth Forbes, Cordell and Mitchell Dowe; five great-grandsons; sisters, Emeline Fraser, Catherine Koleszar; brothers, Edmund and Howard English.
She was predeceased by her husband, John Robert ‘Bob’, daughter, Mary, infant son, John Robert and by her brother, George MacKinnon.
Visitation will be held Friday 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. in Curry’s Funeral Home, 775 Main St., Glace Bay. The Mass of Resurrection will be celebrated Saturday, 10 a.m. in Holy Cross Church, Rev. Conrad Edwards officiating. Burial alongside her daughter Mary and with her husband, John Robert.
Donations are suggested to the CBRegional Cancer Unit. The family extends much thanks to Katherine, Danny and Danielle for always being there.

Carol Ann Allen (Smith)

Born In: Glace Bay

Passed in: Sydney
Passed on: February 17th, 2014

It is with heavy hearts that we, her family, announce the passing of Carol Allen, Grove St., Sydney in the An Cala unit of the CBRH on Monday, February-17-14.
Born in Glace Bay, she was the only daughter of the late James (Jimmy) and Muriel Smith. She was the beloved wife of the late Glenn Francis Allen, who passed away in October 2013.
Carol graduated from Morrison High School, then continued her education at the Cape Breton Business College and UCCB. She received her BACS degree in 1983, an accomplishment she worked extremely hard for and was very proud of.
She worked for several companies during her career, including MT & T, Carroll’s Drugstore, The Silver Dart Lodge, London Jewellers, Tourism Cape Breton and Lindor. She worked at the Holiday Inn Sydney on Kings Road from June 1982 until May 1997, when family illness necessitated her early retirement. It was her position as Rooms Division / Group Sales Manager at the hotel that she was most proud of. She was most recently employed at The Bay at the Mayflower Mall.
Carol’s father put a pair of skates on her at 2 years of age; she glided effortlessly over the ice at Cape Breton’s arenas for the next 60 years. She was known as one of Cape Breton’s most graceful skaters.
Her love for skating and shopping was rivaled only by her wanderlust. She loved to travel, with a desire to see as much of the world as she could (but only the sunny parts) with Glenn or Pat by her side.
Carol was a devoted mother to her children and a cherished grandmother to her grandchildren, who loved their “Nanny Carol” to the moon and back. We will remember her as the woman she was; she made the sun shine brighter, she said what she meant and she meant what she said. She was vibrant, loyal, kind and loving.
She is survived by her daughters Andrea (Darren) Bartlett and their children Tristan, Morgan and Shelby, Tammy Merrill and her son Spencer, her sons Scott (Sarah) MacMullin and their children Zoey and Emma, Roger (Anthony Verdoni) Allen, Shawn (Debbie) Allen and their children Kyle, Troy and Shayna. Carol is also survived by her uncle Archdeacon Weldon Smith and her aunt Sara Warren. Her cherished friend and travel companion Pat Almon and her fur babies Blitz and Dolly.
Besides her parents and husband, she was predeceased by her brother Darrell Smith.
The family would like to acknowledge and thank Dr. Glenn Gracie for his care of Mom for so many years, also the staff of 4E at the CBRH, who were so kind and caring to Mom during her final days. Donations in her name to The Palliative Care Unit would be gratefully accepted.
Cremation has taken place. A funeral mass will be held on Wednesday, February 19, 2014 at 10 am in St. Theresa's Church, Sydney with Fr. James Oliver officiating. All are invited back to Chants Funeral Home, Alexandra St., Sydney for a time of remembrance and refreshments at 2 p.m., Wednesday.

You were someone we could talk to that no one can replace

Your were our dearest mother and our dearest friend

Born in Inverness, he was the son of the late Albro and Ola (Cameron-Crowell) Smith of Port Hood Island. Charlie spent most of his working career in the fishing industry beginning as an inshore fisherman owning and operating lobster and ground fish vessels in Port Hood. In 1977 he took on the role of managing the Fishermen's Co-op in Port Hood and with the fishermen began building the infrastructure that is Ceilidh Co-op today. He was active in the community with organizations including the Arena Commission, the Rate Payers Association and he served on the board of directors of Port Hood Co-op. In 1983 he moved on to manage the United Fishermen Coop owned Bluenose Fisheries plant in Alder Point.

Frank Smith
Born In: Ingonish
Passed in: New Victoria
Passed on: October 27th, 2013
It is with profound sadness that we the family of Frank Smith regret to announce his sudden passing on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013, in the Cape Breton Regional Hospital with his loving family by his side. Although he had been in failing health for some time, his spirit for life was unsurpassed and will live within all who knew him.
Predeceased by his parents and many family members, Dad was born in his beloved Ingonish in 1931 and is survived by his devoted wife, Robena (Lamey) for 59 years; son, Lorne (Mary), Scotchtown; and daughter, Gwen (Rodney) Walsh; cherished granddaughters, Kierra and Abbey, Fredericton.
Dad was a proud, dedicated coal miner for over 40 years, working in Nos. 12, 16, 18, and Lingan collieries for the Cape Breton Development Corporation. He retired as underground mine manager at Lingan Colliery in 1990 due to workplace injuries.
Frank played a key role in the development of figure skating in Nova Scotia, holding many offices including director of the Nova Scotia Figure Skating Section. He was instrumental in the development of the New Waterford Figure Skating Club. Frank and Robena founded the first Boy Scout movement in New Victoria in the early 1950s. Frank was a member of the New Victoria Volunteer Fire Department for over 20 years. The department will assemble an honour guard at his funeral service.
Like his son Lorne, Dad was an avid sports fan, dedicated to the Montreal Canadiens hockey team. He and Lorne travelled to Montreal several times to experience the live game — something they both cherished and talked about often.
Funeral arrangements are under the direction of McLellan Brothers Funeral Home, 3183 Plummer Ave., New Waterford, 862-7500. At Frank's request there will be no visitation; cremation has taken place. A funeral mass will be held in the Parish of Saint Leonard, Mt. Carmel Avenue, New Waterford today (Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013) at 10 a.m. with Fr. McDow officiating. Following the service a luncheon will be at the KOC, Plummer Avenue. All are welcome.
The family would like to acknowledge the excellent care Frank received from all the medical professionals, the many doctors, nurses, VON staff and personal caregivers Michele Shupe and Sheila MacIsaac. The family would like to express a special thank you to Dr. Ien Oei for the many years of dedicated care.
In respecting Frank’s wishes his ashes will be interned in Ingonish in the summer.
In lieu of flowers donations in Frank’s memory can be made to a charity of one’s choice.
You gave us so many wonderful memories … they will keep us smiling.

Smith John 'Jack' Smith Cape Breton Post 8/15/2009
John 'Jack' Smith, Sydney

Born at Sydney , Nova Scotia , Canada

It is with broken hearts that we, the proud family of Jack Smith announce his passing on Aug. 13, 2009.
Born in Sydney, he was the son of the late Tom and Catherine Smith (MacMullin).
Jack was employed with the CBRM for 34 years, retiring in 1999. He then followed his passion for working in the great outdoors by spending parts of each year helping to build a family business in Ontario.
His love for River Denys and nature gave him the nickname “Peaceful Warrior” and this peacefulness was felt by all when in his presence. In River Denys, his time was spent preparing his hunting camp, fishing and cooking one hell of a meal for all who entered.
Celtic music was a gift his mother gave him and you could find him at many square dances. He spoke fondly of childhood memories in rear Boisdale with his family.
His love of hockey and the Red Wings were one of the few things that could make this “man of few words” break into song. Having been with Gordie Howe at a lobster meal 40 years ago and then having been remembered by Gordie during a playoff encounter again last year were highlights for him!
Jack leaves behind Margaret Nichols Smith ‘Sister’, his soulmate of 25 years and her children which he raised as his own, Ann-Margaret (Gillis) Williams (Brion), Ontario, Dawn-Marie (Gillis) Mombourquette (Kent), Sydney.
Jack leaves behind to mourn his children, Denise Smith (Wes), Trenton, Ont., Deborah Eden (John), Trenton, Ont., Gordon Todd Smith (Julie), Hong Kong, and the mother of his children, Dale Palmer, Sydney.
Also left behind are 11 grandchildren, Brodie, Corey, Marlena, Brenden, John Daniel, Kristin, Kathleen, Brienna, Madison, Wesley, and Annelise.
Jack is survived by his three siblings, Tommy (Irene), Ontario, Cleta McCulloch (Barry), Mira, and Jeanette Williams (Ron), Sydney; and In-laws, Vera Nichols (the late Dick Nichols), Sookie and David LeBlanc, Cella Duffy, Barbara and Stewart Zahara, Walter and Debbie Nichols and Carmie and Duncan Gillis.
The last 20 years of Jack’s life he described as a reprieve and always spoke of feeling blessed to have obtained sobriety. He truly lived his life “One Day at a Time,” always relying on his “Higher Power.”
Visitation for the late John ‘Jack’ Smith will take place at the Pier Community Funeral Home, 1092 Victoria Rd. (entrance on Church Street), Sunday, Aug. 16 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral mass to celebrate Jack’s life will be held Monday, Aug. 17, 2009, at 11 a.m. at Holy Redeemer Church with Fr. Errol MacDonald officiating. Reception will be held at the Pier Community Funeral Home.
Donations in Jack’s memory may be made to Palliative Care Society or the Holy Redeemer Building Fund.
Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.

Dad was a man of his word, a man whose belief in life was to work hard, be honest and respect others around you. Dad was a very loving, very compassionate and one who always thought of the needs of others before himself. A loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and true friend to all. During the past years, dad took a keen interest in his genealogy and traced his family ancestors for his children and grandchildren to have. Dad was a man who never believed in giving up, he faced his illness with strength and determination. As weak and as tired as he became, he always took part in conversations with his family at his side. He wanted to know what was ongoing in our lives and was very concerned that we were doing well. He will be dearly missed by all who had the honour of knowing him. By his request, there will be no visitation. Cremation has taken place.

With broken and saddened hearts we announce the passing of our beloved father, grandpa, brother, uncle and friend. Larry passed away at his home in Beaver Cove, N.S., at the age of 54.

Larry began working on the oil rigs in Calgary, became very ill in 1985, learned how to overcome and cope with it through the years. He then, with doctor's approval, became a long haul truck driver, which he enjoyed dearly. When his grandson came along he decided to move back to Calgary to be with family and friends. He bought himself a motorcycle and joined Canadian Motorcycle Cruisers 022, where he met some amazing people. He became second commanding officer, enjoyed riding anywhere, especially 'the twisties'.

It is with tremendous sadness that the family of Raymond Fraser Smith announce his passing on Thursday, Sept. 8, 2011. surrounded by his family at home in North Sydney, N.S. at the age of 78. Born Nov. 3, 1932, in West Tarbot, Victoria County, he was the eldest son of John Angus and Alice (MacRae) Smith. Raymond had numerous occupations throughout his life including sailing on the Great Lakes, caretaker/gardener, carpenter, smelt fisherman, trapper and lobster fisherman. He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Angie (McRitchie); daughter, Marianne, Halifax, N.S., Terry (Lisa), Bedford, N.S., Glenn (Monique) Mississauga, Ont., and Jason, Burlington, Ont. He is also survived by one grandson, Revan who he made sure was spoiled and entertained always by Papa. He is also survived by sisters, Betty Gimler, Muriel Morrison and Murdena Stephen; brothers, Andrew (Gerry), Jackie (Marie); nieces and nephews; cousins and friends that he loved and cared for deeply. Raymond was predeceased by his Church Pool fishing partner, brother and best friend, Donnie, and his nephews, Wesley and Kelly Smith. Raymond was a member of St. Ann’s Bay United Church. Raymond was proud of his Scottish heritage and could speak the Gaelic language fluently. He loved his years at the cottage on the North River where he was an expert trout and salmon fisherman and over the years was able to master custom trout flies he tied himself. The fresh sea trout he waited for all winter/spring were no match for Raymond and his flies as he often let everyone know. He shared his flies and local knowledge with anyone that was interested in fishing with him. He had a deep passion for fly fishing at the Church Pool on his beloved North River. Raymond enjoyed nothing more than spending time on the North River with his friends, family and children. Always good for a laugh, Raymond kept this attitude going throughout his life and even in recent months where he showed us all how to be courageous and positive regardless of the hand dealt to us. Not one to be idle he became a member of the Home Crafters of Cape Breton where he diligently supported Marianne and Angie at craft shows from Sydney to Halifax. One of his signature crafts was his lobster trap coffee table that can be found throughout the community. Most importantly, he provided life lessons and a common sense approach to living for his children throughout their lives and this will be with them forever. As Raymond said, he was not only a father, but also a best friend to his children. Raymond’s family wish to thank the numerous local caregivers who provided compassionate and professional services over the past several months.

Marilyn Morrison (Sobol)

Born In: Sydney
Born: September 7th, 1941

Passed in: Sydney
Passed on: February 25th, 2014

Marilyn Jane (Sobol) Morrison passed away peacefully on Feb. 25, 2014, surrounded by the memories and people she loved.
Marilyn approached her 18-year cancer battle and her death with the same independence, determination, courage and strength that she lived her life.
Marilyn was born in Sydney on Sept. 7, 1941, where she grew up cherishing, her strong Polish community and culture. She was the daughter of the late Stella (Paruch) and Joe Sobol of Wesley Street.
Marilyn's vocation was teaching and she exhibited that gift in every aspect of her life. She graduated from Normal College in 1959, and began her first teaching job in the community in which she was raised-Villanova School, Whitney Pier. Her teaching career spanned over 35 years until her retirement from Holy Angels High School.
Marilyn was a strong advocate of lifelong learning and over the years continued to enhance her teaching skills through various programs and courses affiliated with CBU. This belief in continued learning, as well as her drive to excel, formed the foundation of Marilyn’s strong work ethic. It was important to Marilyn to instill this in her younger siblings, children and grandchildren.
Marilyn married the love of her life, John in 1964, and together they raised four daughters on Cartier Street in the house that John helped build. Family life was everything to John and Marilyn and they enjoyed wonderful summers with their girls in Middle Cape. After John’s passing, Marilyn sought solace in this beautiful part of Cape Breton Island. There, she loved nothing more than to watch her grandchildren learn to swim in the waters of the Bras d’Or, spend warm evenings playing “spotlight”, building bonfires, sharing good times, cheers and conversation with friends and family.
During the winter months Marilyn made her biannual visits to Cuba. These trips and the longstanding friendships that ensued gave her enormous joy. Although Marilyn could not make the trip this autumn, she relived past travels with smiles and laughter in her final days.
Marilyn leaves behind to mourn her passing four daughters, Mary Coleen, Ottawa, Brenda (Jeff), Danielle and Karen, all of Sydney. She also leaves a brother she so admired, John (Valerie) Sobol, Southside Boularderie; sister-in-law, Josie Sobol, East Bay; her sister, Sharon Sobol, Sydney; her “adopted” sister and caregiver Lee Ellen; nephew, Ben; two step-grandchildren, Rachyl and Marcus, as well as many, many special friends near and far.
Marilyn will forever be missed by her 11 grandchildren, Tristan, John Angus,
Gabrielle, Marianne, Peter, Daniel, Colin, Hanna, Payton, Caitryn and Elyssa. They all loved their 'Baba' dearly, and she strived to teach them all aspects of her beloved Polish heritage so it could be carried on through the generations.
Marilyn was predeceased by her husband, John, brothers, Joseph and Nicholas and sister, Janet.
Just as Marilyn directed her life and final days, so too did she participate in her memorial planning.
As per Marilyn's wishes, cremation has occurred. Funeral mass officiated by Rev. Paul Murphy will take place at St. Mary's Polish Church, Wesley Street, Whitney Pier on Tuesday, March 4 at 11a.m. There will be a gathering with family for friends and colleagues to share in a celebration of Marilyn’s life after her funeral mass from 12-2 p.m. Come and share stories and memories of years gone by. Internment will take place at a later date in Resurrection Cemetery and Middle Cape.
Donations may be made to Hospice Palliative Care Society or VON Cape Breton Metro Branch. Let Marilyn's belief of "never losing hope" be realized through these donations.

He enjoyed polishing his 1947 Ford Coupe and taking his best girl for a spin around town and points beyond.

He loved taking his kids everywhere from trips down the road for ice cream to summer vacations in Ontario and the trip of a lifetime to Disney World. Dad was there for every one of our graduations and accomplishments. This self-professed “hillbilly” loved listening to music in his “canoe-py” bed, fishing, hunting and tinkering with his cars and fabricating parts for them. He also had a curiosity for anything mechanical or antique. Lately, he loved to hear what his great grandchildren were doing. He is survived by his loving wife of 48 years, Shirley (Childs) and children, Melvin, Sydney, Ann Marie ‘Mag’ (Clarence) Gill, Tantallon, and Chris (Maureen), Reserve Mines; three grandchildren, Scott (Angela) Gill and Angie Gill of Whitby, Ont., and Reanna MacDonald of Halifax, and three great-grandchildren, Alexandria, Dylan and Brooklyn.

Born In: Bridgeport, Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, Canada

Passed in: Fort St. John, British Columbia, Canada
Passed on: September 26th, 2012

We regret to announce the passing of Old Da Spencer on Sept. 26, 2012 at the Fort St. John Hospital in B.C. Da was born in Bridgeport, the youngest child of the late Edward and Mary Spencer. He lived and worked in the coal mines of Cape Breton for over 65 years, until moving with his family to Halifax and then to British Columbia, where he has resided for the past 18 years. He is survived by his daughter, Jean (Terry Randall) Spencer; Berwick, N.S., Garry (Rob Anderson) Spencer; Toronto, Ont. and Leona (John) Seward; Fort St. John, B.C. He will be dearly missed by his grandchildren, Alex, Conor, Mary Anne (Arthur), David (Connie), Brian (Bryna) and Amanda (Chad); great-grandchildren, Austin, Ethan, Keaton, Victoria, Robyn and Blake. He was especially fond of his nephews, Eric (Linda) Spencer, Dominion, Alex Roberts, Glace Bay and Dale Spencer, Toronto. After moving to B.C., Da enjoyed his senior years mostly playing cards and checkers, doing puzzles and bingo tickets and of course
drinking beer. His health was impeccable even in his late eighties allowing him to continue shovelling snow, mowing lawns and talking walks around the block. His vitality was a continuous strength to my family and there are no words to describe the emptiness his passing will leave in our hearts as well as our home.
"Da is and always will be a beautiful Da."

Spidell Beatrice Irene Spidell Vancouver Island Newspaper Group 9/19/2006
Beatrice Irene Spidell July 21, 1901 ~ September 13, 2006 Beatrice was predeceased in 1986 by her loving husband of over 50 years, Curry Milton Spidell. They were both graduates of Acadia University in Nova Scotia. Curry served as a Chaplain with the Canadian Army in the First World War and with the American military in the Pacific during World War II. Beatrice taught English, French and Library Science for many years. The couple retired to Nanaimo in 1963 and resided at 555 Vancouver Avenue. Beatrice enjoyed artwork with the Bowen Park Seniors program, caring for her cats, bridge, charity work and maintaining correspondence with her many friends and extended family across North America. She was the daughter of Kenneth Murdoch Innes and Marie Rudolph and was born 105 years ago in Sydney, Nova Scotia but grew up in the Truro area. She is survived by her nephews David and Kenneth Innes and many great nieces and nephews including Jennifer and Allison Innes who were particularly dear to her. At the age of 96 Beatrice reluctantly accepted that she could no longer live as independently as she wished and moved to the Kiwanis Village on Grant Avenue. She is very grateful to the many staff members and administrative personnel for their individual attention and thoughtful and consistent care over the past ten years. Beatrice was also appreciative of the medical attention she received from Dr. Baird and for the guidance and legal assistance of Peter Giovando. She will be missed and fondly remembered as an intelligent and gifted person who lived life on her own terms and without compromise. Special friends include Susan Innes, Michael O'Toole and Barbara Cowling. Remembered as well are the many volunteers with Meals on Wheels, Reading for Seniors and The Pet Visiting program whose selfless work and kind attention enriched and brightened her declining years. Also thanks to Catherine Lowe for attending to many of her personal needs and requests over many years. Beatrice was always very involved with the world around her and her mind and memory remained agile and keen long after her body had failed her. She possessed tremendous spirit and when her sight failed she became a great fan of radio broadcasts of the Canucks and Blue Jays games. Beatrice and Curry lived modestly and managed their affairs so as to leave their Estate to be divided amongst the Nanaimo SPCA, Acadia University and the local Museum Society for the Region in Nova Scotia from whence they hailed. Their legacy will be a significant one and hopefully an inspiration to others. According to her specific wishes there will be a simple graveside committal at the Cedar Valley Memorial Gardens on Wednesday, September 20th at 2:00 PM. Family and friends are welcome to attend. Beatrice will be laid to rest beside her beloved husband and God grant that they will have eternal peace and never be separated again.

Willena Marion Stagg

Born in: North Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada

Passed away in: North Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed away on: 22/06/2010

In celebration of a life lived fully and joyously, a tirelessly optimistic and happy lady adored by all who knew her, Willena Marion Stagg, 89, died peacefully at home loved and comforted by her family on Tuesday, June 22, 2010.
She was born and raised on the Gannon Road and true to heart, a "Gannon Roader", she was the daughter of the late Daniel and Laura (Jackson) Steele.
A truly independent lady, and a woman before her time, she would rather do something wrong than have someone tell her to do it "right". From working at the Co-op and running a general store, she followed no one's rules but her own. She was a loving and supporting wife, a strong and generous mother. Precocious and open-hearted, she also had a heavy hand in raising three grandchildren who will eternally adore her for those qualities and forever hold her in the highest respect.
In her early years she was employed at the British Co-operative Store and also ran a general store attached to her home and a clothing store with her sister-in-law Eileen. She volunteered during the Second World War, reading and writing letters for soldiers and also volunteered as a ward aid in the outpatient department at St. Elizabeth Hospital. Willena was proud to be a voting delegate for the Liberal Party which gave her the opportunity to meet former Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau, a highlight of her life. She also worked for the Board of Health for the town of North Sydney.
She was a faithful member of St. Giles Presbyterian Church, North Sydney, and spent many years as president of the ladies auxiliary. Many wonderful memories, long laughs and years spent at the family cabin in Barrachois Harbour, Willena has been an inspiration and leading example to many. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family.
She is remembered by her loving husband, Jack; her son, Kevin (Brenda); and daughter Gail (Robert) May, both of North Sydney; her granddaughters, Karen (Bruce), Ashley and Jillian (mother Paula) and niece by blood but granddaughter by heart, Kayla; her special 'sons', Kenny (Diana) Steele and Gerard (Diane) Steele; as well as many loved nieces and nephews.
Awaiting her in heaven are her mother and father, Laura and Daniel Steele, brothers, Russell (Rose) Steele, Bunny (Stella) Steele and sisters, Rose (Hec) MacNeil, Myrtle (Stan) MacDonald and Joyce Steele, as well as her best friends Bick, Isabel and the ever loving "cabin gang".
Visitation for Willena will be held from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. today (Thursday) in the W.J. Dooley Funeral Home, 107 Pleasant St., North Sydney. A funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Friday at St. Giles Presbyterian Church with Rev. Ritchie Robinson officiating. Burial in Lakeside Cemetery, North Sydney.
Memorial donations in Willena's memory may be made to St. Giles Presbyterian Church.

Starzomski Margaret Edalice Starzomski CBP 8/24/2011
It is with love and wonder that we announce the death of Margaret Edalice Starzomski (nee Martin). Love for the woman who was kind always, and wonder that one person could have meant so much to so many. Margaret was born in Sydney, N.S., to James Lyle Martin (deceased) and Kenina Martin (deceased), and passed away Aug. 23, 2011, at home surrounded by her family. She graduated from Sydney Academy and Acadia University with a major in English and a minor in Library Studies. At the time of her retirement, she was the librarian at St. Andrew Junior School in Antigonish. She married the love of her life, Larry, on Aug. 14, 1971, at St. Andrew’s Church in Sydney, and subsequently moved to Antigonish. From there she raised three loving boys and developed her love of travelling, food, and spending time at the family cottage in Ben Eoin. Keywords that characterize Margaret’s life most often included: caregiving, family, friendship, love, grandchildren, reading, travel, Ben Eoin, nature and kind soul. She loved sports including baseball, hockey and football, and had a real appreciation for golf at the highest levels — the Masters. She is survived by her husband, John Lawrence ‘Larry’ Starzomski of Antigonish; her sons, Brian (Aimee Pelletier), Victoria, B.C., Kevin (Mandy), Antigonish and Stephen, Halifax; grandchildren, Brenna Margaret Anne Starzomski, Lauren Alice Starzomski and Zachary Wren Martin Starzomski.

With heavy hearts we the family of Ronnie Steele regret to announce his passing Jan. 29, 2014, in the An Cala Palliative Care unit at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital.
Ronnie passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family who stayed by his side throughout his courageous battle with cancer.
Ronnie is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 50 years Mrs. Christine Caroline ‘Carol’ (Deveaux). Ron and Carol not only are husband and wife but showed their children how to also be ‘best friends!’ Also surviving is one son, Robert (Suzanne); four daughters, Charlene (Glen) Roach, Ronalda (Bob) Chipman, Glenda (Randy) Getto and Carolann (Scott) MacLeod. Ron (Poppy) was also blessed with six grandchildren, Jessica, Jade, Brenden, Kevin, Stephanie and Kristen whom he cherished and adored. Ronnie is also survived by two sisters, Peggy (Jim) O’Halloran, Anne Marie (Gerry) Caulfield; three brothers, Harry (Flo), Greg and Peter; numerous brothers and sisters-in-law; nieces and nephews.

Ronnie retired in 1992 from Sydney Steel where he worked for 36 years.
He was a man of great faith. His love of God was evident throughout his life as he was a member of St. Leonard’s Parish Council and served as an usher and altar server for many years. Ronnie was a member of the Mount Carmel Gym Committee and Knights of Columbus. He was also a past boy scout leader.
To say Ronnie enjoyed music would be an understatement. He loved so many different genres of music such as Marty Robbins, Bob Marley, Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, and the list goes on. Not only did Ronnie have rhythm but he had the moves. His whistle, like no other, will be missed and remain in our hearts forever.
Ronnie enjoyed sports; he never missed his granddaughter Stephanie’s’ hockey games. He was an avid Jays, Leafs and Patriots fan.
But most of all Ronnie loved family time, holidays, birthdays and suppers around the table. No matter how he was feeling he would never miss an important event. His family was his pride and joy and we felt it every day. Ronnie will be missed by all who had the pleasure of meeting him. He had a beautiful smile that would warm your heart. He was soft-spoken, generous and compassionate. A simple pat on your hand would show his kindness.

Steele Stephen Steele Sydney Post Record p 3 12/6/1941 R. Fraser CORONERS JURY RECOMMENDED TRAIN WHISTLES BE BLOWN AT ALL CROSSINGS IN THE CITY Severely injured yesterday morning when struck by incoming passenger express while he was walking along the railway main line here, Stephen Steele, 63, died in Saint Rita's Hospital early yesterday afternoon. Horribly mangled about the legs Steele underwent amputation of both limbs after admitted to the hospital and he lived for 90 minutes after the operation. Shock, along with injuries sustained, contributed to his death according to medical testimony. Recommendation. An inquest held last night before Dr J K MacLeod, Coroner, returned a verdict of accidental death, and exoneration of the train crew, but recommends that the railways resume blowing whistles approaching all crossings in the city. Up until about three weeks ago, whistles were sounded by incoming and outgoing trains while traveling through the city limits, the Board of Railway Commissioners following representations made by the City Council. Had Narrow Escape. Narrowly escaping the same fate of Steele, was a fellow worker, James McPhail of King's Road, who was shoved clear of danger after the engine had struck the victim. McPhail received an injured foot and had to be transported to and from City hall last evening where the coroner's inquiry was held, and had to be assisted in and out of the building to a waiting car. Attended Victim. Attending Steele at the hospital and performing the operation, Dr J C Young, told the jury that shock resulted in the death of the deceased. Steele, he said, was badly crushed about the legs, one limb had to be amputated below the knee and the other above the ankle. The victim was conscious up until the anaesthetic was applied and he lived for an hour and a half after the operation, the Doctor said. Questioned by Police Chief W B Tracey, Dr Young stated there was no smell or any evidence whatever of liquor about the victims. McPhail, next witness, said he and Steele decided to walk to the Pier where they were to work yesterday, rather than drive over in a city truck, because of cold frosty weather prevailing early in the morning. He said they received their pay at the warehouse and set off for the Pier at 7:45 o'clock. Heard Shout. Branching off the spur line onto the main tracks, McPhail, who was on the outside, said he was walking ahead of Steele and suddenly heard him shout. Simultaneously, he said, he was shoved clear and looking around was horrified to find Steele dragged along by the express engine which he figured came to a stop in about three car lengths. With the assistance of Kenneth Morrison, crossing keeper, McPhail said they applied first aid and made tourniquets out of their handkerchiefs and neckties to stop the flow of blood from the crushed legs. There was a train on the other line below the crossing and attention was concentrated there and he was unmindful of the other approaching express. McPhail said no train whistle was sounded. When removed from tracks, Steele asked for a priest, and afterwards a drink of water. McPhail said he dispatched word to the glebe house and John McQueen of nearby Canada Packers, who was attracted to the scene brought the victim a glass of water. Steele was removed in Strug's Grocery truck, driven by Gordon Graham, to the hospital and was accompanied by McQueen and McPhail. Shouted Warning. Kenneth Morrison, the crossing keeper, said he shouted to the two men who were about 100 feet from the crossing and warned them of the approaching express. He said the signal bell on the crossing was ringing. The cow catcher struck Steele, and the impact forced McPhail clear of the engine said Morrison. He told of rushing to the scene and assisting in the alleviation of the sufferings of the victim. The train went two car lengths before stopping, Morrison informed the jury. McQueen told of helping at the scene and of accompanying the injured man to the hospital. Locomotive engineer, Alex F MacKenzie, did not witness the accident and first intimation he had of it was when his fireman Donald MacFarlane shouted to him to put on the emergency. He said he did so and brought the train to a stop. [A few lines missing] was shunting on the adjoining line down by the crossing and MacKenzie expressed the opinion that the noise might have prevented the two men from hearing the approaching express. MacFarlane, the fireman, said he noticed the two men walking down the spur leading from the warehouse yard, and he said he figured they would walk alongside the rails on reaching the main line, but they did not. He said he noticed that Steele turned around on reaching the main line and kept on walking down the tracks on the inside. It was impossible to avoid the accident by bringing the train to an immediate stop as th men were about 30 feet distant at the time. The signal bell on the crossing was in operation at the time, the witness stated, and ringing. The inquest jury presided over by Dr J K MacLeod, Coroner, and with Neil Johnson, as foreman, deliberated for abut five minutes before returning a verdict of accidental death, exoneration of the train crew, and attached to their finding was a recommendation that whistle blowing be resumed by trains approaching all crossings within the city. Passing Regretted. The late Mr Steele was well known in this city and his tragic passing was learned with deep regret. He was a native of Boisdale, C.B., and went overseas in 1915, and settled in Sydney on returning from the war in 1919. He was employed with the city streets department for the past number of years and was a member of the Canadian Legion. He is survived by his widow, a daughter and a son, residing at 89 Ferry street. Burial at Boisdale. The remains will repose at Curry's Funeral Home, George street, and the funeral will take place on Sunday afternoon to Boisdale where interment will take place. The funeral will leave Curry's at 1 pm and service at Boisdale church at 2:30. Police Chief W R Tracey was present at the inquiry, also W H Wood, Chief Train Dispatcher, while S N MacKinnon, conductor in charge of the express was also present but was not called to testify.

Stephens John William 'Jack' Stephens CBP 7/4/2012
We the family regret to announce that Jack passed away peacefully on Friday, June 29, 2012, at LeVatte’s Lane, Kenwood Hall, Harbourstone Enhanced Care, Sydney, N.S. Born in Sydney, July 10, 1928, the only son of the late W.J. ‘Bill’ and Dorothy (McLean) Stephens. Jack is survived by three sons, Bill (Patty), David (Cathy) and James (Suzanne); grandchildren, John, Michele, Derek and Bella, and great-grandchildren, Zion, Jack and Sophia. He is also survived by his “baby sister”, Diane and was predeceased by his sisters, Faye and Elaine, his parents, and by his wife and loving companion, Ameta (Pike). Jack was a wonderful man who embraced all with his infectious smile, his wit, charm and charisma. His true focus was his family — at the core of his heart. Jack loved the art of conversation, and the challenge of debate. He was a true wordsmith with a passion for reading, combined with his love of the cultural heritage of Cape Breton Island. He was an avid collector with a vast knowledge in many areas including antiques, books, post cards, numismatics and “Cape Bretoniana”. A fixture in the village of Baddeck — Jack always found time to stop and talk at length with any and all — often with one of his beloved whippets, Stoney and Beinn waiting patiently in the car. Jack was an active and founding member of The Freewheelers, Baddeck, and a long-standing member of St. Andrew’s Lodge, Sydney. Jack was well known in the lumber industry having been employed with H.R. MacMillan Co. of Vancouver, and it was while living in Vancouver that Jack and Ameta were wed. He spent several years as sales manager in the family lumber business, J.W. Stephens Ltd. Jack and Ameta also operated Iron City Coins and designed and struck three Cape Breton commemorative medallions, The Black Friday Medallion, marking the 1967 closure of the Sydney Steel Works, The Miner’s Museum Medallion, marking the 1967 opening of the Glace Bay Miner’s Museum, and the John Cabot Medallion, commemorating the first sighting of North America. Jack also wrote a weekly article, “Coin Corner” for the Cape Breton Post. Jack later pursued a career with Parks Canada — first in Halifax as Atlantic Region Interpretive Advisor, and then in Baddeck where he was the Superintendent of the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site. As a young man, Jack served with The Royal Canadian Regiment and with the Nova Scotia Highlanders — having attained the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel — serving as Aide de Camp to three of Nova Scotia’s Lieutenant Governors. He was also a “Kentucky Colonel” — the highest title of honour bestowed by the Governor of the Commonwealth of Kentucky in recognition of noteworthy accomplishments and outstanding service to nation. During his life Jack faced many challenges, including his bout with cancer — but, true to form, he never complained or let things get the better of him and he faced each day with a smile and a good word for all. Jack spent the last sixteen months of his life on LeVatte’s Lane where his engaging personality shone through as he comfortably interacted with the staff and fellow residents — his new-found family and community. He was a true gentleman to the very end. The family would like to express our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to the dedicated staff of LeVatte’s Lane who took loving care of Jack — and embraced him as their “Papa” — with a special thank you to Cheryl, whom Jack held in high regard. Jack has donated his remains to Dalhousie Medical School. There will be no visitation. A service will be held at Knox Presbyterian, Grant Street, Baddeck, on Thursday, July 5, 2012 at 2 p.m. The Rev. Dr. Cameron Brett officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Baddeck and Area Lions Club in support of the learn to swim program at Kidston Island. 6/29/2012 Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada Born: July 10th, 1928

First aid was applied and ship’s officials, on learning of the accident, immediately put back to this port, a distance of over 160 miles, docking here Friday morning about one o’clock. Dr J G B Lynch administered treatment at the hospital but Stevens never regained consciousness and succumbed to burns and shock last evening about six o’clock. As the cause of death and attending circumstances are well established, there is no need of a corner’s [sic] inquiry, Dr J K McLeod, city medical officer, told the Post-Record last night. The remains were removed from the hospital to Lowden’s morgue and arrangements for burial this afternoon were made. Stevens is a native of England.
