Melvin was employed at National Sea Products early in his married life when he was involved in a horrific accident that injured his back and left him in a body cast for eight months. After a long recovery he returned to work, where he was a construction/labourer by trade. Melvin was employed by Atomic Energy where he worked at the Heavy Water Plant in Glace Bay. He continued in construction where he was employed by the Lingan Power Plant, Wreck Cove Power Plant, construction of the City Hospital Nurses' Residence. He spent a short time on the draggers alongside his oldest son, Jerry (Gerald). He loved to peddle fish and was most likely to be accompanied by one of four sons, and/or his son-in-law. Melvin was a strong man who made it his mission to provide a loving, stable life forhis wife and children. He was more concerned over the big things in life and didn't sweat the small stuff. Melvin was the son of the late William 'Bill' and Jean (Drover) Baggs. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Louise (Mailman) Baggs who stayed beside him for almost 44 years through all trials and tribulations; his oldest son, Jerry (Gerald), Halifax, a very special son who resides at home, Vincent 'ol buddy'; his only daughter, Lisa and son-in-law, Kenny Peters, Glace Bay, son, Albert and daughter-in-law, Shellon (Matheson), Sydney; son, Jason and daughter-inlaw, Terri (Koenig), Fredericton, N.B. Also surviving is Sheila (Peters) Bragg; a 'daughter' who joined our family dynamics and remained; good friends and in-laws, Wi l f, the 'Duck', Dorothy 'Dottie' and Hilda and Gerald Rudolph. Melvin (Papa Baggs) was a very lucky man to also be blessed with 10 grandchildren, Sylvia, Brian and Kyle Baggs, Hilary, Holly and Ryan Peters, Dylan and Logan Baggs, Karli and Nathan Baggs. They all loved their Papa very much. Allister, his only surviving brother, is one of loyalty and respect. Allister and his wife, Linda live in Ontario.

This dream was soon to be realized when he worked for CHER in Sydney and CIGO in Port Hawkesbury. Glen also put his charismatic nature to use by volunteering his time to many organizations. He had been very involved with Alcoholics Anonymous and felt very blessed to have been given 34 years of sobriety.

Although he was a very private person, his true character and sense of humour shined through to his family and close friends.

Angus Beaton, a priest with the Congregation of Jesus and Mary for more than 50 years, died July 3 in the Eudist Father's Infirmary in Charlesbourg, Quebec, after a long illness. He was 78. Born in Mabou, Nova Scotia, in 1927, Father Beaton entered the Congregation seminary in 1953 and was ordained a priest three years later. He arrived in Buffalo in 1959 and during his 15-year stay taught English at Cardinal Dougherty High School on Hertel Avenue.

He befriended students with family problems and assumed the duties of guidance counselor, said the Rev. Ronald J. Bagley, pastor of St. Bonaventure Parish in West Seneca.

After leaving Buffalo, he did graduate work in pastoral counseling at St. Paul University in Ottawa before becoming a pastor in the Diocese of Lafayette, La. In 1983, Father Beaton became a campus minister at San Diego State University, where he served for 16 years before failing health forced him to retire. Father Beaton retired in 1999 to Nazareth House in San Diego, and then to the Eudist Infirmary in Charlesbourg, Quebec, the same building - once the Congregation's seminary - in which he began his career. A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at 11 a.m. Friday in St. Mary's Parish in Mabou, Nova Scotia. Burial will be in the parish cemetery.

B. on Sunday, September 4, 2005. Born in Cape Breton, Missy was the daughter of the late John Alexander and Isobel (Kelly) MacPherson. The recent death of her devoted husband, Bill Boyne, was an occasion of great sorrow on her behalf, as well as that of their children and the many people who cherished them. The love and support of so many others strengthened her innate belief in the goodness of people and in the value of family and friends. Locally raised and educated, Missy was a member and past president of St. Vincent's Alumni. A lady and a scholar, she attended UNB at both Saint John and Fredericton campuses, and followed her B.A. with a B.Ed. in 1975. She was an admired and respected teacher who began her career at Saint John High School and went on to teach at St. Vincent's High School. She was looking forward to returning to her students at Harbour View High school, where she had taught the past several years. Missy was an active member of her community and of St. Mark's Catholic Church, where she often helped with services and acted as the greeter. Her strong faith was a comfort to her and was part of the values and character that enabled her to be such a good parent and friend. An avid reader, Missy also enjoyed travelling and get-togethers with her and Bill's friends. She delighted in the many young people she encountered either through her children or her profession. In addition to her adored children, she nurtured all with her wit, wisdom and compassion. She was a true "people person", and to know her was to love her. In addition to her daughter Stephanie and son Colin, Missy is survived by her brother Sandy MacPherson (Marie) of North Bay, Ontario. She was predeceased by her brother David MacPherson. She leaves her niece Toby Berry (Scott) of North Bay, Ontario and many cousins, family members, and friends.
