Taylor William Taylor CBP 8/10/2013
William Taylor
Born: June 12th, 1930
Passed in: Sydney
Passed on: August 3rd, 2013
Another angel has received the honour of receiving the wings of glory, as the work he did here on earth is finished and he is now gone on to his rightful glory. William passed away Sunday, Aug. 4, 2013, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney.
William Thomson Taylor was born on June 12, 1930, to his proud parents, Margaret Joyce (MacCuish) Taylor and her husband, William Stanley Taylor. He was one of four children. William had an adventurous childhood, as he moved around to a few places and met many people who taught him various life skills, which he was able to use in his early years and, in his later years, gave him many rewards. William, also known to a few as T.T., had many other gifts that he shared with family and friends, as he had a very kind and peaceful soul, as well as a heart that was as big as the world and much love for all who knew and loved him dearly. For 43 years, William was employed with the City of Sydney (CBRM) and like many he worked with, started out doing pick and shovel. As a young man and after working as a labourer, William was successful in working himself up the scale, where he finally finished as a heavy equipment operator. Up until he took early retirement in 1991, due to his health, William took great pride in his job. He was able to enjoy his retirement by traveling to a few places. William entertained people by playing his accordion and his hearty laugh was one that was so contagious that one had to laugh with him. He loved taking pictures of anything that captured his attention. William had a great voice and truly enjoyed singing. Many commented on his singing, as at one time, he sang in the choir at Bethel Presbyterian Church and was a member of the young peoples group. He was also a member of the L.T.B.A. Lodge #202 in Sydney, where he held many offices.
William was predeceased by his parents; many uncles and aunts; nephew, David, John’s son; brother, John; sister, Joyce Taylor Crawley; and by many great friends he had known over the years.
He is survived by his brother, Dan B. Taylor (Donald); many nieces, nephews and cousins; and also by his dear and true friend of 29 years, Edward MacPherson.
William’s wish was to be buried without any fancy funeral. He was a plain and simple person who was a “Plain Jane” as it were, but now and then, he would love to be in the spotlight and loved the attention it brought his way.
There will be no visitation and interment will be held in the Garden of the Good Shepherd at Forest Haven Memorial Gardens, with Rev. Robert Lyle officiating.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Benevolent Fund at Bethel Presbyterian Church or to a charity of your choice.
I would like to thank each and every nurse and doctor who, so professionally, attended to William in his time of sickness, as well as his family doctor, Dr. Buhariwalla, who we consider a friend and his staff at the Pier Medical Clinic for the love they showed William. Also, to the many people who sent their love and well wishes for William through the internet and regular mail. To Margaret MacLeod for her utmost compassion and understanding of his needs, as well as those who came to see William and left him feeling refreshed from their lovely visit. Please forgive me if I have missed anyone, as there are so many. Much love and God bless to each and everyone of you, as we were truly blessed to have known William T. Taylor and the world will be just a bit more lonely without him. But, do not mourn his passing, as he is only a heartbeat and memory away to many who knew and loved him. So, please have a good laugh and cry and get together to remember William for all his humour and kindness.

Mary Carmella (Turner) Thiel

Passed in: Dominion, Nova Scotia, Canada

We regret to announce the passing our dear mom, sister, grandmother, aunt and friend, Mary Carmella Thiel (nee Turner) from Dominion with a very courageous and sudden battle with cancer.
Trying to describe Mom is very easy to do; she was so caring and thoughtful, funny, smart, and always put her children and grandchildren before anything else in her life. She was always there for each and every one of us no matter what. She was in all aspects of her life the best mom a child could ask for and never asked for anything in return for herself just that her family live good lives and be happy and be good to others. Mom's religious beliefs were also a very important part of her life and always prayed for everyone that needed prayer. Mom devoted most of her life to her children and taught each and every one of us the true values in life even at times if we didn't think we should listen. Mom was a very wise person who never said a bad thing about anyone. She always figured people had good sides and never wished any harm to anyone. Mom spent most of her time at home cooking and cleaning, raising four children and also helped raise two amazing granddaughters who lived with her. Mom's favourite thing to do was to be there for her kids. She always told us that's what she loved to do. Mom was very lucky to have been here to see her two granddaughters Rebecca and Jessica graduate from high school this year. She was very proud of them and proud of her grandson Matt who graduated from Holland College from the Police Academy. Mom also had a great sense of humour and told many different stories over the years and always stories we would never forget. Mom also
looked forward to her trips each year to the Shrine in Quebec to St Anne De Beaupre with her sister Kathleen and her brother-in-law Tim and they always had some interesting stories when they returned. Mom
was unable to get there this year because of her illness. Mom is survived by her daughters, Tracey (George), at home, Laurie (John McDonald), Dominion; sons, Barry, who resides in Fort Nelson, B.C. and Mark, Sydney; sister, Kathleen (Tim), Glace Bay; brothers, Vincent (Dorothy), Glace Bay, and Stephen, Sydney. Mom also has left behind her special grandchildren, Rebecca, Matt, Jess and her little angel Olivia who will be lost without Nan around and Keisha her little dog. Mom also leaves behind her best friend and her sister Kathleen who will be lost without being able to talk to her everyday like they have done for so many years. Mom and Kay always shared a special bond and although they are sisters they were the best of friends beyond what anyone could ever imagine. P.S. Mom ... remember to call Kathleen.
Mom was predeceased by her mom Mary, father Alfred, brother Alfred and daughter Ruth in infancy and several aunts and uncles. Visitation from 12-2 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 9 at Curry's Funeral Home, 775 Main St., Glace Bay. Funeral service to follow at 2 p.m. in the funeral home chapel.

Thompson Helen Thompson CBP 10/21/2013
Helen Thompson
Born: September 26th, 1914
Passed on: October 19th, 2013
On Oct. 19, 2013, Helen Louise Thompson peacefully left us to illuminate some other world. Her crochet hook is back in its case, car keys on the wall, and credit card quiet in her billfold. Buoyed by community, friends, and family, both near and far, Helen’s life was filled with determination and love.
Born on Sept. 26, 1914, into a closely knit family, Helen was the daughter of the late Royal and Edna Andrews of Marion, Ohio, and older sister to Marnie and Katy.
Helen began driving at the age of 13, apprenticed to a seamstress after graduating from high school, and then went into nurses’ training in Columbus, Ohio. She graduated and began nursing in 1939 as supervisor in surgery. Later Helen shifted to industry, providing nursing and a sympathetic ear to workers at a steel plant and at Universal Cooler, where she met and married Bonar Thompson when he returned from the U.S. Navy after the war.
When Helen was 40, Bonar persuaded her to leave Ohio and help him establish a roofing-and-siding business in his birth province of New Brunswick. They hauled a 30-foot mobile home across the country, and Helen jumped out to stop traffic as they crossed bridges. In Canada she bonded with her in-laws, and made a beautiful home in Moncton, overlooking the Petitcodiac River. She was a lifelong member of Beta Sigma Phi sorority.
Nicknamed “The Roadrunner” by the boy next door, Helen shopped, went to meetings, gardened, sewed, and directed Thompson Bros. Ltd. workmen in New Brunswick and Labrador. She drove to Ohio twice a year, to Florida, to British Columbia, to Maine for truckloads of asbestos shingles. Helen always had a kind ear for friends, and she made a friend of everyone she met.
When Bonar died in 1974, Helen closed down the business, worked as secretary to two ministers, and traveled. In 1987 she bought property in Indian Brook, Cape Breton, to be near her daughter, moving here permanently in 1993. Always instructed and comforted by her faith, she was a member of St. Ann’s Bay United Church, and was vastly supported by her church family, Bonnie’s work family (Ron Caplan and Sharon Irwin), our community, and Victoria County Memorial Hospital, Hospice Society, and Continuing Care.
Besides her husband and parents, Helen was predeceased by her sisters, Margaret Swann and Kathryn Apt, daughter-in-law, Gay Thompson and grandson, Wayne, brothers-in-law, Paul Groves, Lyle Swann, Rob Roy Apt, Arnold McWilliam and Robert, Gordon, George, Frank and Earl Thompson, sisters-in-law, Doris, Esther, Rhoda, and Kathryn Thompson and Margaret McWilliam, sister-in-law and special friend, Elnor Thompson, and many good friends.
Helen is survived by her daughter, Bonnie; son, Richard; grandsons, Seth and Lloyd; sister-in-law, Muriel Thompson; special nieces, Karen (Jim) Kozlowski and Marion Thompson (John Roberts) and family; beloved caregivers, Gloria Mauger and Grace Ann MacDermid, and many loving nieces, nephews, and friends old and new and old and young!
One could say that the themes of Helen’s life are: Driving, and Friendship, and Work — in about that order!
A gathering of family and friends to celebrate the life of Helen Thompson will be held at a later date.
Donations in memory of Helen may be made to a charity of one’s choice.
Funeral arrangements are under the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.

Thorne George E. Thorne CBP 7/11/2011
We the family of George E. Thorne are saddened to announce George’s passing on July 8, 2011, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital following a courageous battle with his ailing health. Born in North Sydney, July 26, 1924, George was the son of Samuel G. Thorne and Mary Dooley Thorne. He was the last remaining member of his birth family. George was a graduate of St. Joseph’s school in North Sydney, and Sydney Academy. Following his service in the Second World War as an air force navigator, George spent two years in Dalhousie University’s law program. He was also a retired sea cadet officer. George spent most of his working career as a travelling salesperson where he developed many lifelong friendships. Before and after his retirement George was an active community member with many volunteer positions. Raising his family of five with his wife Alicia in Coxheath, George was a retired captain of the Coxheath Volunteer Fire Department. The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 151, East Bay, had George fill every executive position available during his membership. His position as service officer allowed him to provide many veterans with assistance. George also held the position of zone commander for the Royal Canadian Legion. George was a past officer of the United Steel Workers of America #1064. George held the positions of both senior counsellor and grand counsellor with the United Commercial Travellers. He was a passionate volunteer with Special Olympics and served as Nova Scotia Special Olympics first executive director. George worked tirelessly for the Cape Breton Chapter of the Canadian Cancer Society. As the society’s publicity chairperson, George welcomed Terry Fox to Cape Breton Island and hosted him at his Coxheath home while coordinating local media services to bring awareness to Terry’s goal. The Cape Breton Regional Hospital was fortunate to have George work as an accreditation team member, and he served 18 years as the secretary of the Cape Breton Veteran’s Hospital Comfort Fund. George loved to golf and his Seaview buddies will always remember the “Silver Fox” and his early morning tee-off toasts. Backyard gardening brought much satisfaction to George and his Kadesh (place of peace) in Benacadie was his little piece of Heaven. George is survived by the love of his life, Alicia, his wife of 59 years; his four children, Joan Thorne, Elaine (John) Manocchio, Bob (Patti) Thorne and David (Terry Ann) Thorne; seven grandchildren, John Paul, Michael, Tyler, Vanessa, Leanne, Chaylene, Courtney; one great-grandchild, Darnell; along with many nieces and nephews that hold George close to their heart.

Along with his parents, George was predeceased by his 11-year old son Hughie in 1972, his 11 brothers and sisters, Hilda, Bertha, Arthur, Catherine, Nora, Helen, Mary, Tommy, Richard, Dave and Picton.

God sent your Mommy and Daddy an Angel from heaven above. And in the few short hours we had you we were overwhelmed and filled with love! You entered this world much too early. They said you wouldn't survive. As I held you and admired your beauty all I could do was cry. As your tiny heart stopped beating, your mommy's and daddy's stopped too. For we didn't want to let you go and we prayed to God you knew! Although you were very tiny you are a big part of our lives and you will always and forever be until we meet up in the sky! We will never forget you sweet angel even though we don't have you to hold. But the short time we got to have you was worth more than all the world's gold!

Her family witnessed her peaceful passing from her earthly life to her heavenly home on Saturday, April 19, 2008, in the Northside General Hospital. Born Feb. 22, 1912, in Sterling Shire, Scotland, she was a daughter of the late Robert and Catherine (Bell) Robertson. Sarah emigrated to Canada at age 12, and settled in North Sydney; a small town in Cape Breton; where she would meet her husband, raise 14 children, and a place that she would always be proud to call home. Mom was our family's storyteller. She had an extraordinary memory, especially for details. She loved to share memories of Scotland, history of North Sydney, and the people who lived there; as well as relating her personal history to everyone and anyone willing to listen. One of our mother's passions was music and playing the harmonica. She enjoyed Irish and Celtic music in particular, and playing a tune for family or strangers was her unique gift to them. Mom had great faith in God. It was this strong faith that enabled her to overcome the struggles and hardships throughout her life, and to see the glory in a life well lived. She was a devoted member of Our Lady of Sorrows parish in North Sydney as well as the altar society. Sarah is survived by her four sons, Adrian (Ann), North Sydney, Lawrence (Tillie), New Brunswick, Gary (Bernice) and Ronnie, both of Ontario; daughters, Catherine, North Sydney, Marilyn, Shirley and Yvonne (Phil) all of Ontario, and Lorraine, Dartmouth; 19 grandchildren; 32 great-grandchildren and one great great-grandchild; her sister, Marion, North Sydney; her brother, Reginald (Mary) of Calgary.

Tompkins, well-known family physician, a resident of Taigh Na Mara, Glace Bay and formerly of 392 Kings's Road, Dominion, passed away on July 19, 2004, in his 84th year. Dr. Tompkins was born on August 12, 1920, a son of the late Dr. Myles Gregory and Anne (MacPhee) Tompkins. He was educated in Dominion and Glace Bay and spent many enjoyable summers in Margaree at his father's homestead. J.B.'s educational achievements were numerous as he strove for his final vocation. Studying at St. Francis Xavier University he was granted a B.A. "cum laude" as well a B.Ed. and B.Sc. "cum laude". He then went on to Holy Heart Seminary in Halifax where he studied for a year. It was then he entered Dalhousie University and earned his M.D.C.M. in 1951. He interned at the Saint John General Hospital where he was named Intern of the Year. He was admitted to the Medical Council of Canada in 1951. Dr. J.B., as he was fondly known, returned to Dominion to practice medicine with his father, Dr. M.G., who began the practice in 1914. He had a very large practice covering the townships of Dominion, Reserve Mines, Glace Bay, Gardiner Mines and many of the outlying communities. Brought up in the "hands on" school of medicine Dr. J.B. was involved in family medicine, general surgery, obstetrics and gynecology as well as anesthesia. For many years he worked as a partner in a surgical team with his brother-in-law and friend, the late Dr. J.O. Mc Neil - Dr. J.O. was the surgeon and Dr. J.B. the anaesthetist. Dr. J.B's service to the mining community in Cape Breton made him a uniquely respected physician. His willingness to go underground to assist injured miners earned him a place in their hearts as "Doctor of the Deeps". He took great pride in this special relationship he had with the miners and was humbled to have his own hook at #26 Colliery washhouse. He was lauded by the Nova Scotia Mining Society in 1979 for the yeoman service he rendered during the February 24, 1979 explosion in #26 Colliery. Dr. J.B. served on numerous medical committees and boards over the years including Chief of Staff of the former St. Joseph's Hospital, President of the Cape Breton Medical Society, Executive Member of the Medical Society of Nova Scotia, a vocal member of the Ad Hoc Committee to Save the General Hospital as well as being Medical Director of Seaview Manor Nursing Home for 20 years. Doctor Tompkins was made a Serving Brother of the Order of St. John in a ceremony held in Ottawa. In 1984 he was named Citizen of the Year by the people of Dominion. In 1985 Dr. Tompkins was honored with Senior Membership in the Medical Society of Nova Scotia. At that time Dr. B.J.M. O'Brien, President of the Cape Breton Medical Society noted "no matter what the hour, he is instantly available to his colleagues, always tending his advice in a positive and non-critical manner. His devotion remains a role model for practitioners. His patients are privileged by his services and his colleagues are honored to be associated with him". In the year 1990 the Dominion Italian Community held a Night of Recognition for Doctor Tompkins "generosity and service to the people". In 1992 the Town of Dominion thanked the physician by hosting "An Evening with Dr. J.B.". In 2003 he was the recipient of the Distinguished Service Award from the Medical Society, which is awarded to a physician who has made an outstanding contribution to the medical profession and the people of Nova Scotia.

He was a Honorary Life Member of Council 1953 Knight of Columbus, Honorary Member Branch 78 Legion, Honorary Member Dominion Volunteer Fire Department, Honorary Member Dominion Italian Community Club as well as an Honorary Member of Dominion Community Hawks Club.

Apparently enjoying her usual good health, Mrs. Tupper became ill a few days previous to entering the Hospital, where she underwent an operation and despite all that medical skill could do, passed away a week later. The deceased was born at Stellarton 58 years ago, and was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. George Boutilier of that town. For the past 20 years she resided with her family at Pine Tree. There, as in her home town, by her many fine qualities she endeared herself to a wide circle of friends, who all regret her passing at a comparatively early age. In her home she was a most devoted wife, kind and affectionate mother, ever loyal to her many duties. She will be sadly missed by her family but they will always cherish the fond memories of her, whose every wish was for their comfort and happiness. She took an active part in the life of the community and was always ready to assist in any worthy cause. Ever cheery and bright, strangers as well as friends enjoyed the hospitality of her home and the sympathy of all is extended to the sorrowing family. Surviving to mourn their loss are her husband and two daughters, (Isabel) Mrs. Jack Stewart, Barney's River; (Mary) Mrs. Sam Stewart, Pine Tree; and one son, Edgar, at home, also a step-daughter, Mrs. Linda Carmichael, Hazenmore, Sask.; and a step-son, Alfred Tupper, of Thorburn.

Ephraim 'Ephie' Tutty
Born In: Glace Bay
Passed on: April 8th, 2013
It is with shattered hearts that we announce the passing of our knight in shining armour. Ephie passed away suddenly on Monday, April 8, 2013, at the Glace Bay Hospital.
Born in Glace Bay, he was the son of the late William and Josephine (McDonald) Tutty.
With incomparable wisdom, Ephie knew what was important to him early in his life; he married the love of his life Corinne and lived in Dominion, where together they would build the life that touched so many lives, as he watched Elwood, Bruce and Lisa grow up. As someone who never stopped giving for those he cared so deeply about. It is impossible to put into words all that he did, all that he was and the lives he touched.
He was a retired coal miner who loved spending time with his family and friends. He was very well known throughout the hockey rinks as Popie, as he never missed a game Meranda or Shawn played, he was their biggest fan and loved every second of it.
Ephie had many gifts and Stephanie was one of them, he raised her like his own daughter with love and devotion. Popie enjoyed his drives to Tim Hortons with Stephanie and the twins, watching them grow into little girls. Ephie was proud of all of his grandchildren, Briana, who is teaching in Hong Kong; Holly, Emily, Liam and Shawn, who are all taking college courses; Meranda, who is going into the Mounties; Dakoda, just being home and growing up. A light came back into Ephie’s eyes when Donna Lynn moved back home, for she was his little girl. Popie took great pleasure in spending time with Shawn, whether they were going to Colette’s for breakfast, or just spending time together. Popie loved life and lived it with the true power of kindness.
Ephie will be sadly missed by his loving wife, Corinne (Reid) Tutty; daughters, Lisa (Ian) MacLellan, Halifax, Donna Lynn, Dominion; sons, Bruce (Elise) MacLeod, Ontario, Shawn (Darlene), Dominion; grandchildren, Briana, Holly, Emily, Liam, Daniel, Jennifer, Stephanie, Dakoda, Meranda, Shawn; great-grandchildren, Peyton, Cadence, Kyle; nieces, nephews and friends.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by son, Elwood MacLeod, brother, William and a sister, Lillian Tutty
In honouring Dad's request, cremation has taken place. Visitation will be held Thursday, 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. in V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 16 Reserve St., Glace Bay. A memorial service will be held Friday at 4 p.m. in the funeral home chapel with Rev. Clayton Austin officiating. A private family committal service will be held at a later date.
As an expression of sympathy for Ephie, memorial donations in his memory may be made to the Heart & Stroke fund or the Lung Association.
At this time we would like to extend a sincere thank you to the paramedics and nurses who did their utmost in assisting our Popie, who we loved so much, and also a special thanks to Dr. Reggie Sebastian who took great passion in caring for him as well.

Hugh Tweedie
Born In: Amherst, Nova Scotia, Canada
Born: June 22nd, 1941
Passed on: March 16th, 2013
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Hugh John Tweedie announce his sudden passing on Saturday, March 16, 2013, while in Florida.
Born on June 22, 1941, in Amherst, N.S., he was the son of the late Jack and Betty Tweedie.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his parents-in-law, Loran and Bette Shaw and an adored and special grandmother, Sarah King. On February 19, 2011, Hugh lost his daughter, Michelle (Tweedie) Chiasson, to a courageous battle with cancer.
Hugh left this world with the love of his life by his side — his devoted wife of 53 years, Sharon.
Hugh is survived by his children, Loran, Patricia Keagan, Craig (Paula) and son-in-law, Maurice Chiasson; grandchildren, Colin, Shannon, Daniel, Laura, Katrine, Paul, Sarah, Holly, Dillon, David and Erin; and one great-granddaughter, Olivia Michelle.
He is also survived by siblings, Bonnie (Tex) Burris, Fredericton, N.B. and Dr. Eric Tweedie (Lynn), Bangor, Maine; as well as brother-in-law, David Shaw (Bonnie), Moncton, N.B. and a number of nieces and nephews.
Hugh graduated from St. Francis Xavier University in 1963 with his bachelor of commerce degree. He achieved first in his class with honours and the Birk’s Gold Medal. He received his chartered accountant designation in 1968 and went on to receive his bachelor of education from St. Francis Xavier in 1971. Hugh was awarded an honorary doctorate of laws from Cape Breton University in June 2005. He was also honoured to be inducted into the Cape Breton Business Hall of Fame in 2008 with his best friend and business partner, Marty Chernin.
Hughie (as his friends knew him) was a leading entrepreneur and a well-known community supporter. He loved Cape Breton and wanted to see the area thrive. He worked tirelessly on many projects and was reluctant to say “no” to any worthy cause. He spent many hours as co-chair for the expansion of the Cape Breton YMCA.
Throughout his professional life, Hugh served as a volunteer board member of several organizations including, Enterprise Cape Breton Corp., Cape Breton YMCA, Junior Achievers of Cape Breton, Coastal Business Opportunities, Rent Review Board and Sydney Steel Corp. He served as a board member at Cape Breton University leading up to his term as chair of the board of governors of CBU. He continued to serve as a board member of Cape Breton University’s Foundation, giving over 10 years of volunteer service to our university. Hug
