Bergeron Mary Jessie Bergeron


Mary Jessie Bergeron, 1916 - 2000 Mary Jessie Bergeron, better known as Jessie Bergeron, resident of Dawson Creek, British Columbia, passed away in Dawson Creek, on September 24, 2000 at 83 years of age. A funeral service was held at 10 a.m. on September 29, 2000 at the Notre Dame Roman Catholic Church, Dawson Creek, with Father Chris Lynch officiating. Interment followed at the Dawson Creek City Cemetery. Jessie was born in a small village called South West Margaree, in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia on October 23, 1916. She was the youngest of six children. Her parents, Isabella and John Allan MacLellan were also born in Cape Breton; her grandparents originated from Scotland. Her parents were farmers who operated what was referred to as a "mixed farm". Jessie loved to help out with caring for the animals and other farm-related work. Perhaps this explains her love for the outdoors and nature. She attended a one-room country school called "Captain Allan's" where one teacher was responsible for all the children. Jessie enjoyed school and felt that she always had good teachers, one of whom was her brother Malcolm. As for employment, she described herself as "a Cook of all trades". Her first job was in New York, working as a domestic. She left this job to return to work on her parents' farm. During WWII, she moved to Montreal where she worked at General Electric, as an inspector in a factory that manufactured airplane parts. She then worked as a waitress in Montreal. She first arrived in Dawson Creek - on April 5, 1945, the year WWII ended. She came to see her brother Angus and her Uncle Pete who were living "out west". She had traveled on the Harvest train from Montreal to Pouce Coupe and Angus was there to pick her up at the train station in Pouce Coupe. Angus had brought along a friend, Bob Bergeron, whom was the man she eventually married; he was the first man that she had met upon arriving in the West! Jessie and Bob soon became friends and got to know each other well when they worked together at the local West End Grocery store. They fell in love and were married on October 15, 1947. Jessie continued to work in the store until she became pregnant with her first child. Unfortunately this baby, Joseph, died at birth. She proceeded to give birth to eight more healthy children; Theresa, John, Bob, Ron, Gerry, Marie, Ken and Aimie. Raising eight children was a challenge that most would shy away from today, but she said more than once that she would do it all over again if given a second chance. Having raised eight children, it is not surprising that she thought that the washing machine followed by the dryer were the two greatest inventions during her time. She was a very special woman who touched the hearts of so many. She shared many gifts, the most precious being her ability to make each one feel special. In addition to her family and friends, she had many other loves and interests. Gardening was one of her greatest passions and even at age 83 she managed to produce the most beautiful flower gardens. Being of Scottish origin, Jessie loved hearing the sound of the bagpipes; whenever she heard the pipes on television all activities in the house came to a stop so that she could listen. But of all her loves, her love of God was perhaps her strongest. She had a very strong faith and deep devotion to God. Prayer was her comfort and was what helped her through challenging times. Jessie was predeceased by her parents, her four brothers, John A, Jim, Malcom and Angus, and an infant son, Joseph. She is lovingly remembered by her husband, Bob; her children, Theresa (Clarence) Wastle, John Bergeron (Heather Martin), Bob (Cheryl) Bergeron, Ron Bergeron, Gerry (Peggy) Bergeron, Marie Bergeron (Hartmut von Gaza), Ken (Lorelee) Bergeron, and Aimie (Nick) Rowe; her grandchildren, Karen Schultz, Mark and Michael Jones, Christal Wastle, Conlan and Sarah Bergeron, Rick, Jason and Shylo Bergeron, Sabrina and Anna Bergeron, Kiefer von Gaza, Cody and Isaiah Bergeron; her great-grandchildren, Andrew and Jessica Shultz; her sister, Tena MacLellan, numerous sister-in-laws, one brother-in-law as well as many nieces and nephews and friends. Funeral Arrangements were entrusted to Bergeron Funeral Services & Crematorium Ltd., Dawson Creek, B.C. 9/24/2000

As an instructor, he provided young New Brunswick infantry recruits with the skills needed for their survival. In 1944 he returned home to his family and to resume mining. He was devoted to people, his gentle character and strong determinations led him down many varied paths: a salesman, and a Commissionaire at the Grand Lake Provincial Park. He elevated the spirits of those of the Holy Rosary Parish and those of the sick in the Minto Hospital. He loved the woods and spent much time replanting trees for the Department of Natural Resources. A regular member of Branch 12 of the Royal Canadian Legion, and an Honorary Member of the Knights of Columbus, Father Dysart Council No. 3502, he was a devout member of the Holy Rosary Church in Minto, New Brunswick. Our strong and gentle father (forte e gentile) was proud of his Italian and Scottish heritage. His paternal ancestry, from Brittolli (Province of Pescara) Abruzzo, Italy was reflected in his love of gardening and landscaping. His maternal ancestry from Ingonish, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia instilled in him a love of hunting and fishing and the gift of story telling. True to the Cape Breton tradition he entertained friends and family members with countless tales of his fascinating and humourous life encounters. He leaves behind his loving wife of 59 years, Frances (Rouse) DiPaolo of Minto, NB; two daughters, Linda Caron (Gerald) of Grand Bay-Westfield, NB and Paulette St. Germain (Ken) of Blissfield, NB; two sons, Tony DiPaolo (Francine) of Allison, NB and Randy DiPaolo (Joyce) of St. Stephen, NB; eight grandchildren, Todd (Terri), Adam, Emily, Anna, John, James DiPaolo, Craig and Stephen Hambrook (Tina); and a great granddaughter Cameron Rain Hambrook; a sister Mary (DiPaolo) Allega of Burlington, ON; several nieces and nephews.

A reception and celebration of Russell's life followed, prepared by the Catholic Women's League. Following cremation, Father Peter Stephen conducted an interment ceremony on the 8th of April 2002 at Holy Rosary Catholic Cemetery, Minto, NB where Russell's remains were laid to rest next to his beloved father Antoniio.

Numerous donations were made to Queen's North Health Complex, Holy Rosary Cemetery Fund and the Heart and Stroke Foundation. We offer special thanks to Dr. Gordon Haynes, the dedicated nursing staff and all support personnel of the Queen's North Health Complex, who helped our father both in body and spirit during his difficult ordeal. Thank you to Gloria and Bruce Hogg, Trudy and Henry Pettipas and Angela and Myles Dufour for their understanding ways.

Dunford Joseph R. Dunford


Joseph R. Dunford 52, Waverley It is with a deep sense of sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Joseph R. Dunford, 52, on August 22nd, 1999. His early education was in Sydney, C.B., and Brampton, Ont., and he later graduated from Ryerson Polytechnical Institute. He earned his engineering degree from the University of Waterloo in 1972. Prior to forming his own company in 1980 he worked for Bell Canada and Telesat Canada. As the president and foulder of EnviroSeal Engineering Products Ltd., his guiding hand and spirit will be sorely missed. His groundbreaking products revolutionized the Pumping Process Industry globally, and are Joe’s legacy to the world. Always exuberant about new technology, Joe’s engineering creativity and keen insight allowed him to explore problems in new ways, as he masterminded solutions that were as elegant in their simplicity as they were successful in their application. Joe’s relentless pursuit of excellence resulted in several unique inventions and subsequent patents. His dedication to revolutionizing this industry resulted in his earning several local, national and international awards. The culmination of Joe’s efforts was recognized world wide in 1995, when he was presented with the very prestigious Vaaler Award. Joe was the first Vaaler Award winner from outside the United States since the award was first presented in 1964. In addition, he received several nominations and became a finalist in 1996 for the Atlantic Entrepreneur of the Year Award. Joe was a member of the Association of Professional Engineers of Nova Scotia, the Inventors Society of Nova Scotia, Alderney Squadron Atlantic District, and The Canadian Federation of Independent Business. He coached minor hockey for several years and later became extensively involved with the sport of canoe and kayak. His passion for his children and the sport spawned the creation of a revolutionary new starting system – the “CanStart”– which he designed together with Greg Maloney. Their system premiered during the Canoe 97 World Championships in Dartmouth. Joe’s inspiration and foresight over his years of association with the Cheema Aquatic Club has been recognized as a major contribution to the club’s ongoing success. He is survived by his wife, Aniko (nee Horvath); his children, Ryan and Mandy; sister, Beverley Genge, Langley, B.C.; and brother, Bill, Sydney, N.S. He was predeceased by his mother, Annie Rose (nee Cann), his sister, Marie, and father, William. Joe was a devoted husband to Aniko, a loving father to Ryan and Mandy, a warm and caring friend to many, a lifelong athlete and sailor, and a brilliant engineer and inventor. He touched countless lives around the world during his all-too-brief stay among us, and he will be remembered with fondness, love and respect by all those he left behind. A “Celebration of Joe’s Life” will take place at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, September 1, 1999, at the Inn on the Lake, Lake Thomas, Waverley, N.S. In lieu of flowers, we ask your kind support of one of the following charitable organizations. The Canadian Diabetes Association - Research Fund or The Joe Dunford Memorial Bursary of the N.S.

Gillis Philomena Bridget Gillis Inverness Oran, page 16 5/15/2002 Juanita MacDonald PHILOMENA GILLIS DIES AT 103 YEARS: PHILOMENA BRIDGET GILLIS, 103, passed away peacefully May 7th, 2002 at the Port Hawkesbury Nursing Home. Her funeral mass was celebrated May 11th, at St. Joseph's Church in Glencoe with Father Bernie MacDonald officiating. She was buried in the parish cemetery. PHIL was the daughter of DANIEL O'CONNELL MORAN and JESSIE (O'CONNOR) MORAN of River Centre (Glencoe Station), Inverness County. She grew up on a turn-of-the-century farm, a pioneer existence that was tempered by loving parents and a large family. She was the last surviving member of this family of 13. Phil left Cape Breton in 1917 to work as a waitress in Halifax. The next year she married DUNCAN GILLIS, a native of Glencoe, at St. Mary's Basilica. Duncan worked as an electrical lineman, a job that soon took the family to Massachusetts. When Duncan's mother died the young family returned to Glencoe in 1926 to care for his father and run the family farm. Her youngest children, MARY and MARGIE, were born at home in Glencoe. PHIL was a devout Christian, a member of St. Joseph's parish, Glencoe, and a conscientious, hospitable neighbour. She was blessed with a keen Irish wit and loved to laugh, to play cards and to entertain friends and relatives at her home. For many years she served as postmistress for the district. A loving mother, PHIL brought up her own five children, nephews EDWARD and BASIL MORAN, as well as children of other mothers who had died young. During World War II her three sons DANNY, RICHARD and PATRICK served in the Canadian army in Europe and her stepson, JOE served in the American army. Following DUNCAN'S death, PHIL worked as a housekeeper and cook at a large rectory in Melrose, Mass. She so endeared herself to the young priests that they called her Mom. As the time drew near for her return to Nova Scotia, one of the priests thanked her by writing, "In my own mind you'll never be replaced here, Your rare breed of dedication puts the rest of us to shame." After her retirement, PHIL resided in Port Hood where she was an active member of St. Peter's Parish and the Catholic Women's League. She remained a feisty and vocal supporter of the Liberal Party even after her 100th birthday. She is survived by daughters MARY CONLON (JOHN), Florida; MARGIE MACDONELL (ANGUS), Glencoe Station; sons RICHARD (MAMIE), Port Hood, and PATRICK (DORIS), Toronto. She is also survived by 28 grandchildren, 64 great grandchildren, and two great great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband DUNCAN; son DANNY; stepson JOSEPH; sisters MOLLY MACLEAN, MABEL MACDOUGALL, ELIZABETH MACLEOD and JESSIE BELLE MACNEIL; brothers JAMES, JOHN, PATRICK, EDWARD, DAN FRANCIS, HUGHIE, COLIN, and RICHARD MORAN. .........(Subscriber's note....PHILOMENA BRIDGET MORAN d/o DANIEL O'CONNELL MORAN and JESSIE O'CONNOR b.

KAY HADDAD REMEMBERED AS FUN, CARING WOMAN By Laura Jean Grant, Cape Breton Post, Sydney The owner of a well-known Sydney restaurant is being remembered as a kind, generous woman who was never too busy to stop and chat with her many faithful customers. Kay Haddad - who along with her late husband Simon, owned and operated Kay's Kozy Korner, on Townsend Street, for more than 50 years died Tuesday. Her death came as a blow to many in the local community, including the restaurant's regular customers and its employees. Margie Jobe has worked at Kay's Kozy Korner for 12 years and said she'll remember Kay as a warm, caring person. "Myself and most people who knew her will remember her laugh," she said. "She was full of fun. She was a very warm person." Jobe said the restaurant has a large number of regular customers which she credits to the outgoing personalities of kay and Simon. He passed away in 1999. "Half came for the food and half came for the personalities who ran it," she said. "Kay and Simon both would go around to the tables and talk to the people." Jobe added Kay's death has had an impact on a lot of people because she was such a well known and respected member of the community. "There's a lot of people going to miss Kay. She was a good woman," said Jobe. For Sydney resident Blair Joseph, who grew up about a block away from Kay's Kozy Korner, Kay was a part of his childhood. "She was like a second mother to all the boys in the neighbourhood," he said. "Everybody always went to hang out at Kay's Kozy Korner." Joseph said it was tradition for the boys in the area to stop in at the restaurant for chips and pop on their way home from the former Sydney Forum. "It was a unique place to go. It was a nice place with a good atmosphere," he said. The fact that Kay would let boys from the neighbourhood work off the cost of their meal if they were a little short on money was another added bonus, Joseph recalled. Joseph said he has countless memories from his time spent at the restaurant including the caring and fun relationship between kay and Simon. "It's hard to mention Kay without talking about her husband, Simon," he said. Joseph recalled that Simon faithfully washed the windows of the restaurant every day and Kay would always tell him he missed a spot and he'd do it again. He said the chore was a long-running joke between the couple. He added the couple will also be remembered as generous supporters of the local community. Joseph said he'll remember Kay as a hard working and caring individual. "She was a wonderful person and raised a great family," he said. Haddad is survived by two sons, two daughters, eight grandchildren, and several siblings. Visitation for Haddad will take place today from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel. The funeral is set for 11 a.m. Saturday in St. Joseph's Church.

Hogan Reverend Andrew Hogan
10/4/2002 Margaret Karrer The death occurred Wednesday, April 10, 2002, of the Reverend Andrew Hogan, priest of the Diocese of Antigonish. Father Hogan died after a long illness at the Halifax Regional Rehabilitation Centre, Cole Harbour. Fr. Hogan was born in Glace Bay, the son of Andrew and Mary (MacNeil) Hogan. He received his early education in Glace Bay, graduating in 1941 from St. Anne’s High School. After working for a year as a coal miner, Fr. Hogan attended St. F.X. University, Antigonish and received a Bachelor of Arts Degree. He entered Holy Heart Seminary for his theological studies and priestly training. He was ordained to the priesthood June 12, 1949 by Archbishop John T. McNally in Halifax. Fr. Hogan was appointed to the staff of St. F.X. University in September following ordination, where he initially taught religion and Latin and coached hockey and football. He is credited with bringing Canadian football to the Antigonish campus. Fr. Hogan was subsequently assigned to the areas of sociology and economics at the University. He did graduate studies in sociology and economics, having Masters degrees in both disciplines. He won - but because of a prior commitment did not accept - a scholarship from St. Louis University for doctoral study in sociology. He later pursued doctoral work in economics at University of British Columbia. When Fr. Hogan returned from St. Louis he was assigned to the Extension Department where he worked in the social and economic fields on issues particular to the industrial area of Cape Breton. He was asked to head up the People’s school which consisted in part of radio and television programs and a labour school which focused principally on local social and economic issues in industrial Cape Breton. In 1973, Fr. Hogan was assigned on loan to St. Mary’s University, Halifax. In 1974, Fr. Hogan was asked to run in the Federal Election for the New Democratic Party. He agreed and entered the election campaign with the same vigor and determination which had characterized every assignment he had accepted. He won and became the first priest elected to the Parliament of Canada. Fr. Hogan was a well-known person locally, nationally and internationally. He was a scholar, activist, sociologist, economist, educator and politician. But above and before all, he was a priest! During his priestly life, Father Hogan never hesitated to accept short-term appointments when his schedule permitted, to fill in on weekends and summers to allow other priests some time off. He ministered on this basis in Baddeck, Antigonish, Mulgrave, Inverness and New Aberdeen. Besides his parents, Fr. Hogan was predeceased by two brothers, John and Aloysius and three sisters, Sadie, Sr. Johanna (Sisters of Charity) and Rita. Fr. Andy is survived by brothers Joe (Mabel), and Steve (Rosella), Glace Bay; and sister, Monica (Phil) Reid, Saint John, N.B. Also many nieces and nephews.
