Milton Veniot

With sorrowful hearts, the family of Milton Joseph Veniot announces his peaceful passing on January 24th at the Aberdeen Hospital, New Glasgow, NS. Born in Pictou on January 9, 1944, Milton was the eldest of ten children born to Milton C. and Helen (Chisholm) Veniot. He was predeceased by his parents, his sister Laurel Holliday and brother Robert (Bobby) Veniot. Left to mourn the love of her life is his partner of 23 years, Norma Nixon. Surviving brothers are Paul (Carolyn) and Eric (Terry), Pictou Michael (Rhonda), Kamloops, BC and sisters Avis Ross, Pictou Janice (Alan) Veniot Bell, Caribou Island and Florida Kathy (Marcel) Muise, Tusket and Maureen (Walter) Yeadon, Brookside, and many nieces and nephews. Milton knew from a very early age that he wanted a career in law. He pursued his education at Pictou Academy, earned his Bachelor of Arts at St. Francis Xavier University and his Law Degree at Dalhousie University. He continued his education at the University of Southampton, England where he earned his Masters of Philosophy. After living in England for two years he returned to Nova Scotia where he was called to the bar in 1970. He was named Queen's Counsel in 1986 and practiced law in Halifax for 20 successful years. Milton clearly knew how he wanted to live his life and he did so. Always disciplined in whatever he chose to do, he earned his black belt in Shoto Kai karate and taught it for many years. In 1990 he returned to his home town to base his practice in Pictou County. He and Norma spent several years restoring, renovating, and landscaping his beautiful 1867 Victorian family home in Pictou. They enjoyed their summers at "the cottage" on Caribou Island where Milton loved swimming at the Dragline beach, rowing his single skull and taking long walks with a book. His law practice flourished in Pictou County and through his persistence and dedication to resolving conflict and his detailed understanding of law he became a well-known labour mediator and arbitrator, bringing peace to many labour strikes. Thank you to the VON, Dr. Gordon Young and to Dr. Gerry Farrell and the staff of the Palliative Care Unit of the Aberdeen Hospital. Family flowers only please.

10/24/1949 R. Fraser VICKERS FATALITY FURTHER INVESTIGATION URGED BY CORONER’S JURY Sydney Mines, Oct. 30 - A coroner’s jury empanelled to inquire into the death of Alexander Vickers, 16 year old local youth on the night of Oct. 22, completed its inquest yesterday afternoon and requested that further investigation into the accident be made. They added this finding that the deceased’s death had been caused by a fractured skull, suffered when struck by an automobile. POORLY LIGHTED Members of the jury also made a suggestion in their reporting back to the coroner that street lights on the street where the accident took place - Pitt street - be changed over to the opposite side from that which they are now located on, this as a safety precaution for the public. They made this suggestion after witnesses described the street where the accident took place as being poorly lighted, and stated that lights are on the opposite side from that where another sort of road way is used as a sidewalk during daylight hours at least. A total of 11 witnesses were heard during the inquiry, which was concluded yesterday after a preliminary start had been made one week ago, and some of the evidence was termed “confusing” by Coroner Kenneth Fraser. He termed parts of the evidence heard as being such in view of the fact only the three persons in the car involved in the fatal accident saw the “two persons” on the right side of the road which the driver - Peter Forrest - stated that he swerved out to avoid striking, only to then hit young Vickers and injure hime in what proved a fatal manner. It was pointed out that the two persons walking with Vickers at the time did not see the others alleged to be walking on the opposite side of the street. The inquest took place at the Town Hall, presided over by Coroner Kenneth Fraser, while Crown Prosecutor Donald Finlayson, Sydney, was present and examined the witnesses. First witness called was Dr. W. T. MacKeough, who examined and treated the patient when he was rushed to Harbor View Hospital immediately after the accident. Dr. MacKeough, after telling of the condition of the victim when he first saw him, declared that young Vickers had died as a result of brain injury and shock. He stated that the injuries he suffered could have been received by him having been hit by a car, or by his head striking against something, had he been thrown by the impact. Mrs. Cecilia MacAulay, next witness heard, stated that she and her brother in law, Lloyd, had been walking up town with Alex. Vickers at the time - the trio on their way to attend a movie. They were walking on Pitt street, on the left hand side, and Vickers was in between them shortly before the accident took place. He walked out towards the centre of the street and then started to walk behind the witness and her brother in law just before the accident occurred. DIDN’T HEAR HORN [not photocopied] ... not see Alex Vickers until he saw him lying partly on the gravel by the side of the road. Witness declared that the driver of the car returned to the scene and took Vickers to hospital. After that, he and his sister in law got into truck and were driven to the home of Vicker’s parents to notify them also, but did not accompany police back to the scene. Witness said that he would judge the car to be going between 15 and 20 miles per hour, and said that the accident took place between the General Office and Guy street. Armand Bonner, who was with Peter Forest and the latter’s mother in the car involved, was the fourth witness heard. He said that as the car was coming up Pitt Street that the occupants noticed two persons walking on the right side of the street and three on the opposite side. The driver, he said, then swung out to avoid striking the two on the right side, but after doing so was then unable to keep from hitting Vickers. Witness estimated the speed of the car at the time as being between 20 and 25 miles per hour. Continued on page 18 [NO DATE] [Comment from Donald A.

Vihos Mary (Markadonis) Vihos  CBP 9/20/2010
The time has come to say good-bye to the matriarch of the pioneer Markadonis family, Mary Vihos, who at 99 recently passed away to join her beloved husband of 72 years, Nick Vihos. In their long married life they were parted only for a short time by illness but reunited in a nursing home for their special care needs. Being with him again was her greatest fulfilling happiness in  their togetherness in the last two years.  Uncle Nick passed away in April at 101 years. Aunt Mary for the last six months found it more unbearable to be without him than to make it to her centurion status as his partner. She joined him  willingly when he came to "check in on her" in her "dreams" this past month. Aunt Mary was the last of her immediate family.She came to Canada with her mother and siblings in 1917 to join her father and oldest brother, Steve, who arrived in Canada in 1914. She was educated in Glace Bay, learning the language  and played an active part in the family businesses, as well as home life, prospering as well in every cultural and social opportunity that the mining community of Glace Bay had to offer.She studied music, played piano and violin and could teach both. Both she and her sister, Jennie loved their music in their home and social environment. Aunt Mary and Uncle Nick were married in 1938. She at that time lost her Canadian citizenship because Nick was in the Merchant Navy of Greece and she had to reapply for hers and his  citizenships to be again in Canada as Canadians. They celebrated their life together in both Canada and Greece and they had the best of both worlds - but no children. In their union they baptized, help guide and inspire all their relatives children, throughout the years. Aunt Mary knitted for every baby born in their community on both sides of the Atlantic and  kept entertaining all their nieces, nephews and godchildren, on both sides of the family, by word, action and example, to be the best they could be. In her immediate family she was predeceased by her brother, Emmanuel at sea (1917), while travelling to their new country of Canada; her father, George in 1947; mother, Helen in 1958;  brother, Nick in 1987; brothers, John, Anthony and Steven, between '88 - '89; Jennie, her only sister, born in Canada, died in 2008. Mary's nieces and nephews surviving her are Helen Xidos (Steve's daughter), Eleni Chronis Wade (Jennie's daughter); Billy Chronis (Jennie's son), Von, George and Nick Markadonis (John'sSons), Argena and George (Tony's children) and so very close to her also were Nick's nieces and nephews, Katherine Farmakoulas and Emmanuel Xidos, Laodiki (Vicky Xidos) Lutwick,Socrates, Manuel and Loulouthe Kambouris, Catherine Kambouris, Loulis Vihos, Teena Vihos, Lakis Vihos. Mary's godchildren are Jeremy Chronis, Dino Sophocleous and Steven Vihos, here  in Canada and many others in Greece. All were so very close to Aunt Mary and Uncle Nick, their numerous visits, calls throughout the years reflected the love and devotion they shared for  them which was unending - as theirs was to them! For all of us, Aunt Mary and Uncle Nick were the fibrous backbone of our community and they were the perpetual force of its sustainability.  We miss you so much Aunt Mary and Uncle Nick - but we know because of you all was well for us who loved you here on earth - as it is with you both now in Heaven. We can't thank enough the wonderful and continuous care giving by Dr. David Ley and his staff and the wonderful caregivers who made life at their home so enjoyable for the devoted  couple. And to the staff of Seaview Manor - for successfully managing to continue "their togetherness" at the end of their lives together. They were an exceptional couple and managed to embrace  love and caring wherever they were - thank you all so very much for caring and sharing. To all the early pioneer families and their present offspring - Aunt Mary and Uncle Nick would like to say a sincere thank you for making their lives of work and care together such a wonderful  experience; and Cape Bretoners a wonderful part of their lives. Thank you and Good-bye! Visitation 6-9 p.m., Friday, Oct. 8, 2010 at Curry's Funeral Home, Main Street, Glace Bay. Funeral will be Saturday, Oct. 9, 2010 at 2 p.m. at St. Anargyree Church, Marconi Street, Glace Bay.  Interment at Forest Haven. Flowers optional or donations to a charity of your choice.   9/16/2010 Greece  17/05/1911

Nick was one of the founding and very valued members of St. Anargyree Greek Orthodox Church.

He is survived by his loving family, wife Ruth, daughters Carolyn Russell (Edward) Sondra Noel (Martin) four grandsons, Todd Russell (Jane) Rejean Noel (Carolyn) Yvan Noel (Janine) Lucas Noel (Kayla) and four great grandsons, Tristan Russell, Oliver Russell, Zachary Noel and Yuri Noel. Also survived by his brothers Robert (Gertrude) Hugh (Helen) sister Catherine (Wheldon) and many more family and dear friends. Ken served proudly in the Canadian Navy in WWII in the Atlantic on the corvettes. After the war he left his Cape Breton birthplace to come to B.C. and settled in Ucluelet where he remained for nearly 60 years. He worked 42 years as a logger and reluctantly retired in 1988. Ken was an avid sports fan who loved all sports but particularly hockey and football. He loved his Canucks and Toronto Maple Leafs and rarely missed watching a game. Ken's happiest times though were those spent with family and friends and most especially time with his grandsons whom he adored and was so proud of. Of course he loved his dogs and could be seen spending many happy hours walking the streets of Ucluelet with his beloved companions Wool and Max. Ken loved Ucluelet and it's people and was very proud and grateful to be twice named Ucluelet's citizen of the year. Most recently Ken moved to Port Hardy to be close to family during his illness. Dad was a gold hearted man. He had a smile for everyone and a helping hand for anyone in need. His sense of humour and fun, his compassion, generosity and unconditional love will stay in our hearts forever. A beautiful life is gone but never forgotten. Words could never say how much we'll miss you. Sleep peacefully Dad until we're together again. We would like to thank all those whose care and compassion helped dad and all of us during a very difficult time. The kind ladies at Home Support, Doctor's Smith, Fletcher, and Lee in Port Hardy, Dr. Atwell and Dr. Blood at the Cancer Clinic, the ladies at Port Hardy Medical Clinic and staff of Port Hardy Hospital. A special thanks to the kind neighbours at Highview who always looked out for Dad. Cremation has taken place and time and place of memorial service to be announced at a later date. If desired donations in Ken's memory may be made to the BCSPCA or to Prostate Cancer Research.

Walker David J Walker Cape Breton Post 5/10/1937 Norma Day Death of Fire Victims Held Charred Remains of Three Victims Interred on Sunday Coroner's Jury, Saturday afternoon, Found that David J Walker and his Two Children Succumbed to Suffocation and Fire When Home Was Razed Friday Night - Sorrowing Countryside Pays Final Respects to Unfortunate Victims Gig Ridge, C.B. May 10 -- Amid the quiet &amp; peace of this staid old farming community, and 'neath a freshly covered grave in the little churchyard reposes today the charred remains of the three victims of Friday night's holocaust when fire raced through the pine constructed home of David J Walker, 65, to sweep him into eternity along with his three year old son, John, and seven year old daughter, Mary. Lone survivor of the triple tragedy - the worst experienced in Cape Breton in some years - is 35 year old widow and mother who is still suffering greatly from shock and prostration over the loss of her farmer husband, their only two children and the little homestead of many years standing. Shocked and sorrowful countryside assembled here in hundreds Sunday to pay final tribute to the memory of three victims when service, plain and simple, was held in the Presbyterian Church, William Sutherland, student minister, officiating. In Single Casket A single casket held the few blackened bones of the father, son and daughter, whose lives were snuffed out in the conflagration which climaxed by tragedy but transcended by an act of heroism -- the sacrifice of the life of the father in an unsuccessful attempt to rescue his sleeping children from the flames enveloped home. Its origin undetermined, the fire was discovered in the kitchen of the Walker home late Friday night after the little family had retired to bed and rapidly consumed the structure to leave in its wake death and destruction. Coroner Inquiry Assembled Saturday afternoon in the kitchen of the old fashioned country farmhouse of Norman MacDonald, nearest neighbor of Walker, a Coroner jury empaneled by Dr. J K MacLeod, Sydney Coroner, after listening to the evidence of three witnesses, including the grief stricken widow, returned a verdict of death by fire and suffocation and added...a rider of "sympathy" for the desolate widow and mother. Discovered Fire It was Walker who discovered the fire after he was awakened by the acid smell of smoke and emerging from his bedroom upstairs rushed down to find the kitchen ablaze. Going to the bedroom off the kitchen which was occupied by his wife and the two children, he roused her and informed her the house was on fire, instructed her "to get some water." Tried to Fight Blaze Apparently thinking they could extinguish the blaze in quick order, Mrs. Walker rushed to the well several feet away from the house, Walker worked the blaze inside. Taking the buckets of water from his wife after she arrived back, Walker doused the contents over the fast advancing fire which stubbornly resisted the attempts of the harassed couple to extinguish it. Easy Prey Tinder dry pine timber on the dwelling fell easy prey to the rapidly moving trail of lames and in no time the little farmhouse was a mass of fire from end to end. Rushing into the house to save the two youngsters, Walker was soon overcome by smoke and fire and perished at the foot of the bed where his daughter - the eldest child - slept, while near her in the wooden crib reposed the three year old son - "the baby of the family." Saw Reflection Attendants at a dance about a mile away, were attracted by the reflection of flames across the horizon and rushing to the scene found the hysterical woman screaming and attempting to enter the fire swept house to aid her husband and children. Noticed Victim Breaking open a window at the side of the bedroom, several of them shoved a companion through the opening and held on to his legs while he groped about the fire and smoke in search of the trapped inmates. Between intermittent flashes of flame, the rescuer reported that he could perceive Walker slumped at the foot of the bed, and efforts to haul him to the window proved futile as blaze and smoke provided an impenetrable barrier. Mounties On Scene Word dispatched to the R.C.M.P. headquarters in Sydney brought Constables C K Dolan &amp; John Stanistreet quickly to the scene after a fast 20 mile drive from the steel city, and they assumed charge of activities after arriving. A bucket brigade composed of neighboring farmers and attendants at the dance and later augmented by the two police constables worked until long past midnight to control the conflagration it was only after it had spent itself that the recovery of the three victims was made. Among the hot smoldering ruins of the little farmhouse the two Mounties, aided by others, found the crisply burned bones of the father, son &amp; daughter and removed them to a little wood shed several feet away from the scene of the disastrous blaze, while comforting neighbours escorted the distraught and shocked widow to the MacDonald home, close by. Reduced to Skeleton The fire seared skeleton of the father was located at the foot of the bed where he had collapsed from the effects of the fire and smoke, on the springs of the bed, the bones of the little girl where found; while among the ruins in the cellar the searchers retrieved the remains of the boy. Three Witnesses Opening at 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon, the coroner's inquiry lasted about an hour and was in charge of Dr. J K MacLeod assisted by the Mounted Constables Dolan &amp; Stainstreet. Rev. Allister McIvor, pastor of the United Church at Marion Bridge was foreman of the jury which included in its personnel, William Strickland of the Presbyterian college, Montreal, who is in charge of the Presbyterian Church at Marion Bridge for the summer months. Only witnesses heard were Mrs. Walker, John Munroe and Donald MacDonald. Widow Testifies Dressed in black and showing visible signs of terrific strain of distressing events of the previous night, Mrs. Walker was the first to testify, and between sobs narrated the story which depicted the ghastly tragedy which struck her little household. Roused by Husband She said she slept in the room off the kitchen with the two children and that her husband occupied the bedroom upstairs. They had all retired early on Friday night and she figured it was around midnight that she was awakened by her husband who told her the house was on fire. Witness told how she ran to the well, procured several buckets of water and how her husband vainly attempted to put out the blaze and finding his efforts futile ran into the burning house to remove his sleeping children to safety. "He went into the flames", she exclaimed in sobbing voice, "and that was the last I saw of him." The woman informed Coroner MacLeod that she could not say how the fire started and conjectured that it might have originated from a spark from the chimney or kitchen stove which contained a low fire when the family went to bed Friday night. Her husband, she added, had a habit of smoking on occasion when he retired to bed but whether he had done so on Friday night she was unable to say. The children were sleeping when she left the room to help her husband fight the fire as far as she knew they never awakened. The kitchen, it was later explained in the proceedings, was built onto the house. Mrs. Walker exited outside from the front door leading from her bedroom having done so at the request of her husband who, she said, told her the kitchen was in flames. She said there was no smoke in her bedroom when her husband roused her to give the alarm about the fire; she also explained that he would have to go through the kitchen to reach her bedroom. Shouted to Children Time and again she shouted to her children, she said, but received no response. This was after her husband had entered the burning building to rescue them. John Munroe said he was attending the dance and with others had noticed the glare set up by the fire. Everyone in the place rushed over to the Walker farm, found the house wallowing in flames and smoke, and Mrs. Walker standing close by screaming for help. He described how he and a companion helped another associate into the bedroom in an effort to locate the fire trapped husband and two children. Donald MacDonald, the young man who attempted to search for Walker in the burning room, corroborated the testimony given by Munroe, and said he could not add any more to the details that had been offered. Sympathize with Widow Deliberating for about five minutes, Rev. Mr. MacIvor and his associate jurymen returned a verdict that the three victims came to their death by fire and suffocation; no blame attached to anyone, and that "we as jurors offer to the bereaved widow our deepest sympathy in her great and tragic loss." Breaks Down With the announcement of the verdict, Mrs. Walker broke down completely and it was with great difficulty that comforting women neighbours succeeded in restoring her to normal composure again. Arrangements for burial were made by friends and associates of Walker and a casket provided from Brown's Funeral House in Sydney, was brought out and the morticians assembled in best manner possible, the remains of the three victims. Later, the casket was conveyed to the church where it reposed until after the funeral services Sunday afternoon and carried from there to the adjacent cemetery for interment. Pathetic Scenes Pathetic scenes were witnessed at the funeral and the silence in the little church was only broken by convulsing sobs of Sympathetic friends, relatives, neighbours and others who joined in paying their respects to the heroic father and his two children. Touching Tribute "Greater love hath no man that he lay down his life for a friend" was the theme of funeral address preached by Rev. Mr. Sutherland, who assisted the service by Rev. MacIvor, personal friend of the deceased. Rest blurred...but what I can make out... Tragic Death at Big Ridge Born at Big Ridge...lived here all his life, Mr. Walker the last surviving member of his immediate family, he was a son of Mr. &amp; Mrs. John Walker....rest too blurred to read.

Walker David Walker Cape Breton Post Page 12 4/15/1946 Norma Day Kicked By Horse - David Walker, 37, Fatally Injured Glace Bay, April 14 -- David Walker, 37, died late Saturday afternoon at his home, 17 Bridgeport Rows, less than an hour after he had been kicked in the chest by a horse. The accident took place while Mr. Walker was hitching the horse to a drive wagon at the rear of his home. A witness to the unfortunate occurrence was the victim's mother, Mrs. Dan Walker, who was watching her son through the kitchen window but was unable to do anything when the mare suddenly reared and then dragged the victim a distance of almost 50 feet. Docile Animal The mare was owned by Mr. Walker and was generally regarded as a docile animal. Saturday afternoon Mr. Walker intended to take the horse out for a run and after he had harnessed the animal he backed the mare between the shafts. The horse was acting a bit skittish and fearing that she would smash the shafts if he backed her between them, Mr. Walker held the reins from behind the horse while he raised the shafts high enough to let her pass between them. Suddenly the animal reared and as Mr. Walker endeavored to regain control of the horse she kicked him in the chest. He retained hold of the reins as the mare started to run away and was dragged almost 50 feet before he managed to release himself. His mother summoned other members of the family who removed the victim to the house and called medical assistance. The horse was later captured by a brother of the victim. The surface injuries caused by the kick did not appear to be severe but it is believed that the blow resulted in serious internal injuries around the chest. The victim expired less than an hour later and before he could be removed to hospital. Mr. Walker was 37 years of age and was a native of Bridgeport where he had resided practically all his life. For the past23 or 28 {paper blurred} years he was employed at No. 1-B colliery and recently worked as a brakeman on the motor load in the mine. Widely known in the district he enjoyed the respect and esteem of all his associates and his passing has occasioned widespread regret. He is survived by his parents, Mr. &amp; Mrs. Dan Walker, with whom he resided, his wife, a daughter, Florence and a ten month old son Francis Colin. Other relatives include two brothers and four sisters. They are Christena, Mrs. William Maxwell, New Aberdeen; Catherine, Mrs. Russell Taylor, Bridgeport; Mary in Toronto; Effie at home; Neil &amp; Peter Walker at home.

Walker Effie Walker Sydney Post Record 8/17/1940 Maureen McNeil Passing of Effie Walker Mourned in C.B. Funeral of Centenarian To Take Place Sunday Afternoon Mourned by countless friends throughout Cape Breton, Mrs. Effie Walker, 109 years, who died at her home at Big Ridge Friday morning, will be buried on Sunday afternoon at Marion Bridge. HERE 95 YEARS - Infirmities of old age claimed the life of this venerable centenarian, who lived the last 95 years of her life on Cape Breton soil at Big Ridge, having journeyed to this country from her native heath of Stornaway, Scotland, at the age of 14 years, with her parents the late Mr. and Mrs. Munroe. HER ONLY LANGUAGE - The English language was an unknown tongue to her, speaking only the language, "Of The Garden of Eden," Gaelic, and conversation carried on with her in English, an interpreter, her daughter, Mrs. Norman McDonald, at Big Ridge, discharging this duty. It was only in recent weeks that the passage of time began to take its toll on her and as late as July 22, she celebrated her 109th birthday, with relatives, neighbours and friends in quiet and fitting manner, receicing scores of congratulations from all parts of Canada and the United States. She lived through the reign of six British monarchs, from William the Fourth who was King when she was born, down to the present - day ruler, King George the Sixth. WITNESSED PROGRESS - She witnessed the onward march of progress in all its phases and lived through one world conflict and lived long enough to see another was of greater magnitude and intensity that the 1914-18 homeric struggle. Her interest in things local and general was marvelously acute and she kept pace with all the current events of the day by medium of newspapers and radio recounted by her relatives and neighbours. Her cousin, Mrs. Catherine Oliver, Whitney Pier, predeceased her by a couple of months. She was 104 years old when she died. The late Mrs. Walker will be laid to rest in Riverview Cemetery, Sunday afternoon, the funeral to take place at 2o'clock at Big Ridge. Her husband died in 1903 and two daughters, Mrs. D.J.MacQueen, Framboise and Mrs. MacDonald at Big Ridge with whom she lived for the past several decades. John MacDonald, a city fireman, is a grandson. Submitted by Norma Day Cape Breton Post, Friday, August 16, 1940 Death of Cape Breton's Oldest Lady Mourned 109 Year Old C.B. Woman Dies At Big Ridge Mrs. Effie Walker, Island's Oldest Lady, Lived Through Reigns Of Six Monarchs Cape Breton's oldest lady, Mrs. Effie Walker, 109 - is dead today. The passing of this beloved centenarian occurred this morning at the home of her daughter at Big Ridge, C.B., where she has lived for the past several decades. 109 in July Death was due to the infirmities of old age, but up until recent months she was remarkably active and on July 22, this year, celebrated her 109th. birthday with relatives, friends and neighbors. Born in Stornaway, Scotland, July 22, 1831, she had lived in Cape Breton for 95 years. Her parents, the late Mr. &amp; Mrs. Munroe, came to Canada from Scotland when she was a child and settled in Cape Breton. Through Six Reigns She had the unique distinction of living through the reign of six monarchs --- William the Fourth, Queen Victoria, King Edward VII, King George V, King Edward VIII and the present ruler King George the Sixth. Transportation had developed from the ox-cart stage to its present day modern form during her lifetime and only her advanced years kept her from going aloft in an airplane. She was eager and willing but relatives and others counselled against it. She spoke but one language, Gaelic, and when interviewed questions in English had to be relayed to her by an interpreter - her daughter. Her husband, John Walker, died in 1903 and a daughter also predeceased her several years ago. Surviving are two daughters Mrs. D J McQueen, Framboise, Mrs. Norman MacDonald, Big Ridge, with whom she resided. John MacDonald, City fireman, is a grandson. The funeral will take place on Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock Atlantic Standard Time, and burial will be in Riverside Cemetery, Marion Bridge. Her cousin, Mrs. Catherine Oliver of Whitney Pier, predeceased her several months ago at the ripe old age of 104.[Comment from John MacDonald, great grandson: &nbsp; In reading the obit. Of my great-grand mother Effie Walker of Big Ridge there is a glaring mistake. In that grand-son John MacDonald is a fireman. The fireman was not her grand-son. Her grand-son was my father who worked at the Dominion Tar and Chemical on Victoria Road. He resided on Prince Street in the Ashby area.]

Walker Genevieve (Devoe) Walker Cape Breton Post 2/1/2010
Genevieve Walker, Alder Point

Born in 01/02/1915 at Alder Point , Nova Scotia , Canada

It is with profound sadness that we announce the death of our dear mom, mother-in-law, grandmother, aunt, cousin and sister-in-law.
Genevieve was the only child of Margaret Alice (Livingstone) Devoe and Charles L. Devoe.
She was born on the property where she still lived in Alder Point and spent her summers in Big Bras d’Or with her grandparents and cousin Mary Livingstone.
She was a devoted mother to 21 children and was very proud of their accomplishments. A loving and caring grandmother to 45 grandchildren; 49 great-grandchildren and 11 great-great-grandchildren. She was the shining light in all our lives. Her home was always filled with cooking and baking aromas, bread baking and many children from the neighbourhood mixed in with her own crowd. It was a stop off for most kids before and after school. There was always an extra place at the table for anyone who happened to drop in. This ritual continued long after her own family had moved on. Many friends of her sons and daughters continue to call and visit her when they come home for a hug and a smile.
She was an expert seamstress, making many of our clothes when we were young continuing to make her own for many years. She was also an excellent knitter. Many pairs of slippers were distributed to the extended family as well as crocheting and tatting. We also remember many Christmas decorations being made out of scraps of material and left over Christmas wrap. She will always be remembered when the family gets together for special occasions because there will always be stories to be told and pictures to be shown. She was a woman who was devoted to her religion beginning at St. Joseph’s and continuing at St. Anne, where she was a member of the choir, a reader at masses and a longtime member of the St. Anne’s Society. She made numerous trips to St. Anne De Beupre with her sister-in-law Celina Roland and her daughters.
She was a member of the Associates of the Sisters of St. Martha and an active member of the Bras d’Or Pensioners Club for 30 years and president from 1982-85. She was involved in the school board when our father was the secretary to the trustees at the Alder Point School. She took the school census for many years. She was very proud to have many longtime friends in Alder Point and the surrounding areas, although in the later years she was not able to visit too much.
She travelled extensively to Germany, United States and all across Canada where she had family in most provinces. She visited Sr. Joan at the many convents at which she was posted. Six of her children served in the military (now all retired from active duty) — Gib (RCN), Anne (RCAF), Vince (RCA), Betty (RCAF), Ken (RCA) and Don (RCA).
She is survived by her children, seven daughters, Helene MacLellan (James Simm), Sydney Mines, Anne Larade (Bob), Comox, B.C., Sr. Joan Walker, Lethbridge, Alta., Betty Graham (Brad), Alder Point, who lived with her and were her caregivers for the past five and a half years, Norma Marsh (Lou), Little Pond, Carol Vickers (Johnny MacNeil), Sydney Mines, Vicky Taylor (Jimmy), Florence; and 10 sons, Gilbert (Gloria Guido), Ottawa, Ont., Vince (Kaye Timmins), Englishtown, Leonard (Jean Phalen), Alder Point, Kennedy (Heidi Schutzner), Oromocto, N.B., Sheldon, Toronto, Gordon (Barbara Cholock), Riverview, N.B., Donald (Sandy Wallace), Guelph, Ont., Gerard (Susan Boyer), Thunder Bay, Ont., Pius (Deborah Armsworthy), Scotchtown, Greg (Joanne Buffett), Alder Point; stepsister, Margaret Keily, Sydney Mines; and a special brother and sister-in-law, Johnnie and Deany Walker; also many cousins, nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her husband, George Francis Walker, July 25, 1964, sons, Charles Richard Walker, July 1, 1961, James Adrian Walker, Jan. 28, 1947, two daughters at birth, Sept. 22, 1955 and June 25, 1958, three sons-in-law, John MacLellan (Helene), Wilfred Poirier (Norma) and Dale Vickers (Carol), grandson, Bruce Walker, Sept. 7, 2007, oldest son of Gilbert and Gloria.
We love you mom and grandma and will miss you very much.
A very special thank you to her angels (Cape Breton County Homemakers) who came to her home for personal care and sat with her when we had chores to do.
Visitation today (Monday), 7-9 p.m. and Tuesday, 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. in Francis Funeral Home, Sydney Mines. Mass of Christian Burial will take place Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. in St. Anne Church, Alder Point, with Fr. Peter McLeod officiating. Burial in St. Joseph Cemetery, Bras d’Or.

After making a preliminary investigation, the R.C.M.P. here got in touch with Coroner A B McGillivary who ordered an autopsy and inquest held. A jury was empaneled which met and elected Daniel Collins foreman. The jury viewed the remains at Campbell's morgue after which they adjourned to meet again Monday night. Tonight Dr. Bruce Archibald, town medical officer, assisted by Dr. John R MacNeil and Police Officer Brown, conducted an autopsy, and while the doctors declined to make any statement, it is believed that some of the organs were found to be in an abnormal state. The brain, liver, stomach, heart and one lung of the dead woman were removed and were taken in charge of the R.C.M.P. and this morning Constable McGough went to Sydney with them and sent them out on the morning express to Provincial Pathologist Dr. Smith, Halifax, for an investigation by him. Mrs. Walker was 62 years of age, and had been a resident of No. 6 for some years. Her husband survives here, there being no children. Mrs. Walker had been treated for some time back by her physician, Dr. MacKeigan of Dominion No. 6, and it is said that she had been taking medication apart from that prescribed by her physician, and it is possible that an overdose of some medication, accidently taken, may have resulted in her death.

Wall Claire Elaine (Gillis) Wall CBP 11/22/2011
It is with the heaviest of hearts and great sadness that we announce the passing of Claire Elaine Wall, beloved wife, mother, nana,
daughter, sister, aunt, godmother and friend. Claire passed quietly from our lives early Friday morning at the age of 62.
Claire was the third of 13 children born to Eileen (Connolly) and the late Patrick 'Paddy' Gillis. Claire was united with her beloved husband Dennis July 4, 1970. They had just celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary. Together they were blessed with three loving children of whom Claire was so proud, Janet, Sydney, Lisa (Jeno), Halifax, and Stephen (Dana), Victoria, B.C. Nana Claire leaves behind what she felt were her most precious gifts, her grandchildren, Emma Claire and Ryan Charles Drohan, whom
she loved so dearly. They were her greatest joy and brought a smile to her face each and every day. Claire always told them "I love you more than tongue can tell".
A woman of deep religious faith, Claire was an active member of St. Theresa's parish who was devoted to her church and to God. Claire was active in all aspects of parish life. She was a dedicated, lifetime member and past president of the Catholic Women's League. Claire was the CWL Regional Convenor for the Diocese of Antigonish and a member of parish council. She assisted in the organization of countless fundraisers for the parish. It was within the CWL of St. Theresa's parish and her friends within the parish that Mom felt much purpose, fulfillment and comfort. Claire's dedication to service was recognized when she was awarded the Honourable CWL Maple Leaf award for her outstanding work. Born and raised in Whitney Pier, Claire was proud of her roots. She
graduated from Holy Angels High School and the Cape Breton Business College. Claire worked until her children were born and subsequently took the time to concentrate on raising, loving and nurturing her family who meant the world to her. After returning to work, Claire spent 25 years with Cooperators Insurance where she achieved her Associateship as a Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP), retiring in 2009. During that time, she so loved her career and her many co-workers in the insurance and legal communities who were like an extended family to her.Claire thoroughly enjoyed time with family and friends in her summer home on the North Side of East Bay. She was truly selfless and had a tremendous sense of compassion. Poet Kahlil Gibran wrote that "Work is love made visible", and Claire loved deeply. She was fully dedicated to her family and friends and reached out to them in times
of happiness and need - Claire was always there for everyone. One could not enter her kitchen without finding her hard at work on her signature dessert, fresh pork pies, and a good cup of tea to be enjoyed and her memorable words "Good dear, good" .
Claire was predeceased by her father, Paddy, and brother, Stephen. She is survived by Dave (Charlotte) Gillis, Sydney, June (Don)

Passed on: February 7th, 2014

It is with great sadness that we the family of the late Richard Joseph 'Boots' Walsh, 81, announce his passing on Feb. 7, 2014 in AnCala, Palliative Care at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, surrounded by his loving family.
Dad was born and raised in Whitney Pier, and he was so very proud of his community. He was the son of the late Ronald and Elizabeth (Hollahan) Walsh. He was predeceased by his sister Margaret and twin brothers in infancy.
He is survived by his loving and supportive wife of 58 years, the former Alice Neville, his children; Ron (Trish Jamieson), Sheila (Steve MacDonald), John (Marie McCarron), Catherine (Michael Kelloway), and Robert (Kimberly Ryan). He was the proud grandfather of nine wonderful grandchildren who loved him dearly and who affectionately call him 'Bootsie'; Jennifer MacDonald (Matthew Ernst), Ashley MacDonald, Adam, Zachary, Joey, John Michael, Nicholas, Emma, and Josh Walsh. In addition, he is also survived by his sisters-in-law, Isabel MacNeil, South Bar and Mary Neville, Sydney and 19 nieces and nephews.
Dad graduated from Sydney Academy in 1951 where he was an outstanding athlete in track and field, swimming, boxing, and a provincial rugby champion. Upon graduation, he worked with the Sydney Steel Corporation for two years.
As an avid hockey fan, Dad was an "unwavering” supporter of the Montreal Canadiens. One of his greatest joys was watching his grandsons and granddaughter play hockey throughout the years. He was their greatest fan! He was also very supportive of his other granddaughters’ dance classes and never missed a recital.
Dad’s policing career began on May 4, 1954, and spanned 40 years. He started as a Constable walking the beat where he became a familiar and trusted presence. His policing career transitioned from Traffic to Detective to Inspector of Administration. In 1985, he became the Chief of Police for the City of Sydney, a position he occupied with distinction for 10 years. During this time, he served as president of both the Nova Scotia Association of Chiefs of Police and Atlantic Association of Chiefs of Police.
Throughout Dad’s life, he exhibited integrity, strength, determination, and humility. Above all, he was an optimist! It was these qualities that enabled him to courageously fight cancer for 13 years.
We will be forever grateful for his ongoing love and support. He was an amazing husband, father, grandfather, mentor, and friend. He would want all of us to know that “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have kept the faith.” (2 Timothy 4:7).

Evelyn Beatrice Walsh

Born in: New Waterford, Nova Scotia, Canada

Passed away in: Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed away on: 08/03/2010

On March 8th, 2010, Evelyn Beatrice Walsh, RN, passed away peacefully at the South Shore Regional Hospital in Bridgewater after a short illness.
Evelyn ‘Evie’ Beatrice Walsh (Carpenter) was born in 1932, in New Waterford, N.S., to John and Bridget (Quinn) Carpenter.
She is survived by her husband Jack; children, Robert (Ellie), Shelagh (Peter Macnab), Bruce and Naomi; brothers, Bernie (Jean) and Jackie and many adoring nieces and nephews. A devoted grandmother, she is lovingly remembered by Sarah and Scott Sproul, Jessica Walsh, and Dylan Ryan.
She was preceded by her parents; sisters, Mamie MacKinnon and Carmel MacDonald and brothers, James and Blain Carpenter.
Evelyn led the fullest of lives. At 16 she fibbed about her age to get into nursing and graduated at 19 as a registered nurse from Hamilton School of Nursing in North Sydney, followed by Dalhousie, where she obtained a diploma in Public Health Nursing. A true believer in the collective rights of workers, she was involved in the creation of the Nova Scotia Nurses Union and helped negotiate a breakthrough wage settlement that brought a measure of justice to her profession.
Evelyn’s leadership was recognized with numerous awards, including the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award. She was past president of both the Lunenburg West Women’s Liberal Association and the Catholic Women’s League of Bridgewater. An advocate for the Head Start program for disadvantaged children, she volunteered for the March of Dimes, the Arthritis Society of Canada, the Red Cross, and many other organizations. She was active in curling clubs in Yarmouth, Bridgewater and Truro, the LaHave River Yacht Club, and she loved to play bridge with her dear women friends.
She also loved the flag, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the bi-cultural nature of Canada, and speaking her mind. She worked to ensure that at least some of her grandchildren were bilingual. Politicians from across the political spectrum sought out her advice and wise counsel.
But what sustained Evelyn was her 53 year marriage to Jack and the life that they created together. They began that life from a cabin in the Margaree Valley, where she hauled coal on a sled through the snow in winter, and used an axe to break through river ice for water. Four kids, four grandkids and twenty-three houses later, she and Jack continued to love, laugh, and celebrate a life of hard work, great food and friendships, wonderful parties, and a passionate intensity that made them both - and everyone they embraced - better people.
In keeping with her generous spirit, Evelyn has donated her body to Dalhousie University for scientific research.
A celebration of Evelyn’s life will take place at St Joseph’s Church 123 Pleasant St., Bridgewater, on Thursday, March 11, 2010, at 11 a.m., with a reception to follow at the Fairview Inn, 25 Queen St.

He only had a Grade 3 education so job opportunities were scarce, but he accepted whatever was offered with a willing hand and a grateful heart. Da liked a little drink as well as the next, and not behind “closed doors.” For he made a point of visiting practically everyone in the lower end of Bogrow. As momma would say “your father is reading the meters again.” There were challenges and with momma’s faith and sense of humour they were met. We have many, many happy memories and laughs to share in the years ahead. He is survived by sons, John William, Francis Gerard; daughters, Margaret Alice Thomas, Mary Olive Du Gas, Theresa Madonna Gear and Moira Anne Walsh, and their families, and many grandchildren; great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.

Albert 'Al', Walzak, LCdr RCN (Ret'd) CD2, 80, of Halifax, died peacefully on Friday, Oct. 26, 2012, at home surrounded by his family. Al was born in New Waterford, N.S., the eldest son of the late William and Gertrude (Stepaniak) Walzak. After graduation from St. FX University in 1955 with a bachelor of arts degree (major in geology), Al joined the Royal Canadian Navy Reserve as acting sub-lieutenant. He retired as a lieutenant commander after serving 36 years. During his career he sailed on various ships and had shore postings on the east and west coasts before retiring from the maritime command staff in December 1987. He became involved in volunteer work with refugees and immigrants which led him to a second career working with immigration as a settlement officer with the Metropolitan Immigration Settlement Association. Al worked with MISA for eight years helping refugees and immigrants seeking settlements and shelter in Canada, and this passion to help others continued in his volunteer work until the very end. Albert was a man of action and compassion, always putting the needs of others before himself. In recognition of his work with those in need, he and his wife, Virginia, were awarded the Elizabeth Ann Seton Award by the Sisters of Charity in 2007. A man of faith, Albert was an active member of Saint Lawrence parish and more recently Saint Benedict parish in Halifax. In his retirement years, Al especially enjoyed spending time with his family and friends at their cottage on Pigott Lake. The door was open to all and his generous hospitality and kindness were felt by so many. As a wonderful storyteller, he has richly entertained many with his life experiences and tales. He is survived by his loving wife of 55 years, Virginia (Bowes); children, Gina (Mark Young), Kelly, Taya (Bob Shields) and Albert 'Buddy' (Lisa Haydon); his grandchildren, Mitchell, Meagan and Stephanie Young, Brian, Jeffrey and Christina Meagher, Erin and Adrienne Shields, Amy and Maryn Walzak, and great-grandchild, Owen Meagher.

Wareham Bonnie Wareham CBP 4/6/2013
Bonnie Wareham
Born In: Woodstock, Ontario, Canada
Born: April 3rd, 1946
Passed on: March 29th, 2013
Bonnie Doreen Wareham, 66, passed away on Good Friday, March 29, 2013, at the QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax, N.S.
Her impassioned battle against multiple sclerosis began 32 years ago. Bonnie’s vigorous will to live, unwavering optimism, and the love of family, friends, and many supporters carried her through her difficult disease. She always displayed a hopeful outlook on life, never feeling down or frittering away time on self-pity. Quite simply, she loved her life just the way it was. Bonnie displayed grace at all times, demonstrated kindness toward everyone, and was masterful with her wit and charm. Everyone who had the pleasure of getting to know Bonnie, even during the briefest encounters, came away with valuable life lessons.
Bonnie was born on April 3, 1946, in Woodstock, Ont., to Arthur and Ruby (Windsor) Burry. Growing up in Woodstock, she graduated from Woodstock Collegiate Institute in 1963. After high school she attended the Ontario Vocational Centre (Fanshawe College), graduating as a computer keypunch operator. Soon after she began working at Harvey Woods Ltd. as a keypunch operator. After starting her family, Bonnie worked as the general manager of the Matador Steakhouse and Tavern in Cambridge, Ont., where her early righteousness and courage were put on display after serving as the key witness in the conviction and jailing of organized-crime members following an attempted robbery of the business.
Bonnie adored her husband, Clyde, with whom she spent 43 years. After moving to Cape Breton, N.S., in 1974, Bonnie worked hard to build a series of small businesses with Clyde. They founded Premium Distributors Ltd., for which Bonnie diligently managed all the office and financial aspects of the business. She adapted readily to several industries in which the business undertook, including magazine distribution, greenhouse operations, and manufacturing of mining and textile products. Bonnie’s community activities in Sydney were numerous.
She was a member of Trinity United Church, where she participated in countless charity bake sales and potluck suppers, raising money for the poor and assisting new immigrants to Canada. She was a popular leader with youth organizations such as the Girl Guides of Canada, 4-H Club, the cheerleaders of Ashby School, and St. Theresa’s Youth Hockey.
Long before the onset of her illness, Bonnie was an avid fundraiser for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, and the Cancer Society. Bonnie’s zest for life was exhibited in many ways. She faithfully cared for family and friends through delicious cooking and baking from scratch. Even at times when she was not able to be hands-on, she always made certain that her recipes were prepared according to her exacting instructions. Bonnie also got great joy from listening to music; she was well known for her love of rock and roll and her philosophy of louder always being better. She loved dancing, fast cars, and played all varieties of games and cards, especially with her family and close friends. She treasured camping with her family on the northeastern shores of Cape Breton and in Wreck Cove, where many family memories live on. She had a deep passion for gardening and got great satisfaction in the fresh fruits and vegetables she grew for her family to enjoy; for her there was nothing better than putting her hands in the dirt.
Bonnie’s family would like to extend special thanks to those whose major medical contributions allowed her to fully enjoy the life she loved: Dr. Mohan Singh Virick in Sydney; Dr. Jock Murray in Halifax; LPN Cecile MacAulay in Sydney; LPN Ellen “More-or-Less” Moore in Sydney; Lucille Smithson in London, Ont.; Dr. Christine Short in Halifax; and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada. Countless more supporters, caregivers, and medical experts helped Bonnie over the years; although the family regrets that they can’t name you all, we will be forever grateful.
Bonnie was predeceased by her parents, Arthur and Ruby Burry.
She is survived by her husband, Clyde, of Beaverbank, N.S.; her son, Paul (Mana), Bedford, N.S.; her daughters, Stacy Medeiros (Henry) of Kitchener, Ont. and Marina Patterson (Noel) of Owen Sound, Ont. and her grandchildren James, Jacob, and Jocelyn; her brother, Kevin Burry; and her husband’s children Linda Wareham-Benedict (Ben), London, Ont.; Walter Wareham (Misun Kim), Edmonton; and Margret Wareham, London, Ont.; and grandchildren, Nicole, Jennifer, and Monique.
Throughout her life, Bonnie maintained a sweet and simple demeanor that won the trust and hearts of many. Her signature gift of joy, shown through her constant smiling, laughter, and joking, will never be forgotten.
A memorial service will be held at Bonnie’s home at 377 Laurel Ridge Dr., Beaverbank on Sunday, April 14, 2013, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., and is open to all of Bonnie’s family and friends.
As expressions of sympathy, the family would appreciate it if donations would be made in Bonnie’s memory to promising research in the reversal of MS symptoms through the leadership of the Myelin Repair Foundation: www.myelinrepair.org, 18809 Cox Ave., Suite 190, Saratoga, CA 95070, 1-877-863-4967.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Middleton Funeral Home, 398 Main Street, Middleton, N.S. (902) 825-3448.
