We wish to thank Dr. Beth MacCormick for her years of care and kindness. The nurses and doctors attending Dad at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital Intensive Care Unit who so gently and with great respect ensured he had peace and comfort.
Our greatest thanks and appreciation we extend to our Mother and Dads best friend, with her love, devotion and tireless care, she brought dad through many battles and gave him many more years to enjoy another day.

His favourite place on earth was his cottage in Georges River where he spent many happy days enjoying the laughter, antics and summer time pursuits of his children and then his grandchildren and great-granddaughter. Seeing how they loved his special place really warmed his heart. Family birthday celebrations were never complete without his chant, “Cut the cake! Cut the cake!”
Jim-Jim will be greatly missed by his wife of 61 years, Julia Theresa (Rahey). He was so very proud of his children and 10 grandchildren, son Brian (Nancy) and their children Jodi (Doug) Reid, Halifax, Brianne, Edmonton, Andrew and Nicholas, North Sydney; son Eric and his daughters Ericka, Vancouver and Victoria, North Sydney; daughter Regina (Mike) Meaney and their children Molly, Bryden and Maggie, Georges River.

Many nieces and nephews will miss Uncle Jim.
Besides his parents, Jim was predeceased by brothers, George, Lawrence and Dave, infant son, Joseph, granddaughter, Carmen and great-grandson, Davy Reid.

To his family and those who loved him, he will be remembered as a very positive, encouraging, caring, giving and selfless person. He was always willing to lend a helping hand. He was a very appreciative man and felt blessed with all that his life had given him. Joe always made you feel welcome, you were happy to be in his presence. It made him so happy to see joy in others especially his grandchildren. Da/Poppy was truly one of a kind. Joe is survived by the love of his life and best friend, Carmelita; his children, Mary (Gary Dunn), Liverpool, Lisa (R.J. MacDonald), Frasers Mills, Antigonish County, Chris (Kerry Kelley) Simsbury, Conn.; his (Poppy’s) grandchildren, Kayla, Blaire, Jamie, Andy and Kennedy; his sister, Magdalen; his brothers, Francis, Alex, Dan Leo; special cousin, Donnie; numerous nieces and nephews; and his brothers-in-law, Gerald and Lowell.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear sister, friend and companion, Carol. God called her home to be with Mom and Dad in heaven on March 29, 2013. Carol, always up to the task, agreed to lend a hand and went where she was needed most, so she left her earthly body and set her spirit free to climb the heavens to be by their side.
Born in New Waterford, July 25, 1974, she was the daughter of the late Fred and Patricia (Scheller) Nearing.
Carol was a beautiful friend to all, whose love, smile and sense of humour was limitless and she made everyone laugh wherever she went.

John lived his whole life in the Pier, and was well known as being naturally gifted in sports. He was scouted by the National Hockey League in his youth and was an avid baseball player and bowler. John also loved to play cards and he and his Lil hosted many enthusiastic tarbish games over the years. In his final years, John spent much of his time tuned in to the hockey and ball games and talking sports with family and friends. His sharp wit and sense of humour kept his spirit young.

Besides his parents, John was predeceased by the love of his life, Lillian (Young) Zahara in 1997 after 57 wonderful years of marriage. He was also predeceased by his sisters, Mary Ivany, Stella Davis, Annie Marmulak and Katie Zahara and a brother in infancy.
