BENT (Farrell), Phyllis Elizabeth "Betty" - 81, Pictou. It is with great sadness that the family announces the death of their beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, on Thursday, August 10, 2006, in the Palliative Care Unit of Aberdeen Hospital, New Glasgow. Betty was born and raised in North Sydney, and was a daughter of the late Fred and Florence (Hare) Farrell. She was employed with the T. Eaton Company as a young woman and continued to work for the company part-time after her family had grown. Betty also worked as the bookkeeper for her husband Jerry's various businesses throughout their marriage. Mom's first and foremost priority though, was her family. We recall many happy hours spent on Lowden's Beach under the "big" tree, where we were free to explore, swim, picnic and nap the whole day through. Also, we remember her devoted care to each of us during serious illnesses of meningitis, mononucleosis and asthma. Her caring ways extended to the multitude of friends we
brought to our welcoming home. Each of her grandchildren hold dear the memories of being very special and important individuals, much-loved by Grandma. Mom enjoyed playing in the ukulele group and she loved to dance. She and Dad spent many enjoyable Saturday nights with friends at the golf club or armouries. Having a fondness for many types of music, Mom tolerated our enthusiasm for the varied shades of rock and roll, and the drumming aspirations of her son, who still can't play the drums. Blessed with a joyful sense of humour, Mom honed her skills over the years, teaching all of us to find the brightest, funniest and most positive aspects of all life's dilemmas. Betty will be fondly remembered and always loved by her husband of 58 years, Gerald T. Bent; daughters, Beverley (Michael) Simmons, Pictou; Judi O'Brien, Kentville; Ley (Wayne) Cheverie, Barney's River; son, Hal (Ruth), Halifax; nine grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; sister, Faye Keeping and brother,
Milton (Jean), both of North Sydney; many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by sister, Zenith Caswell; brother, Fred Farrell Jr. Cremation has taken place.

Daper Catherine (McInnes) Daper Crowsnest Pass Promoter 12/26/2006
Catherine Daper nee McInnes Catherine Draper passed away peacefully at the home of her daughter in Calgary on December 26, 2006. She was one of 11 children of William and Agnes McInnis, born in Inverness County, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia on December 28, 1915. The family moved west in 1916, eventually settling in Bellevue where William found work in the coal mines. Following high school Catherine studied beauty culture at the Beaton Academy in Calgary and then operated her own salon in Bellevue. She was an active participant in community and parish affairs while living first in Bellevue, then in Taber and, finally, in Pincher Creek. She held many executive positions in the CWL and was a lifelong, though far from compliant, member of the Liberal Party. She volunteered at Crestview Lodge, Pincher Creek, Extendicare and Meals on Wheels. Sports, in particular curling, softball and hockey, were an important part of her life. The music and the culture of Cape Breton was integral to her well-being. She came from a family of piano, fiddle and guitar players and passed this love of music on to her children and grandchildren. Although she left Cape Breton as a child, she always maintained contact with relatives and friends there. Her best holidays were the recent trips back to Nova Scotia with members of her family. It is difficult to include all of her attributes and to accurately describe what she meant to her family but perhaps most noteworthy was her continuing interest and pride in the accomplishments of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren whose careers, progress in school and achievements in sports she followed with a keen interest. Their efforts she always rewarded with great love and affection. Catherine will be lovingly remembered by Ralph, her devoted husband of 69 years and by her four children: Carol, Brian, Allan and Colin and by her 12 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren. A Celebration of her life was held at St. Michael's Church in Pincher Creek at 1:00 P.M. on Saturday, December 30, 2006 with Father Eric Nelson officiating. Interment in Fairview Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, memorial tributes may be sent in Catherine's memory to World Vision web site at World Vision.Ca or to #1-World Drive, Mississauga, Ontario, L5T2Y4. Eden’s Funeral Home Pincher Creek was in charge of arrangements. Posted on 2007-01-05 12/26/2006 born in Inverness County

GARDINER, Russell Leo "Bucky" - 1938-2006, Sydney Mines. It is with heavy and saddened hearts that we must announce the passing of Bucky Gardnier. Bucky was a loving husband, a great father and grandfather, and most of all a best friend to his loving wife of 45 years, Ruth. He was a fun loving person who was always there when called upon. Bucky displayed a sense of humour that made it fun to be around him. He was able to touch many hearts throughout his short life as was evidenced by the support he received while battling through his illness. A recent quote by his brother, Frankie, sums up the impact that Bucky had on people, "I didn't know Bucky knew so many people. Everywhere I go and introduce myself, people ask, 'Are you Bucky's brother?'" This is a true testament to Bucky's character. Bucky's battle with cancer over the past two years showed his strength and zest for life with his positive attitude while remaining actively involved in his role as a husband, father,
grandfather, brother and dear friend. Bucky is survived by his loving wife, Ruth (Clarke); sons, Darren (Lynn MacLellan), Sydney; Ian (Marlene Campbell), Mississauga; daughters, Kim (Shawn MacDonald), Halifax; Nicole (Geir Simenson), Hubley; beautiful grandchildren, Brett, Brianna, Victoria, Kyle, Alex and Ryan, all whom worshipped their Poppy for his kindness and laughter. Also surviving are brothers, Mickey, Ebby, Frankie, Gerald, Brian; sisters, Betty, Lorraine, Thelma, Linda; brothers-in-law, Larry, Stan, Michael, and Artie Clark; sister-in-law, Patrice Gillis and Marion Pullen. Bucky was predeceased by parents, George and Sarah Gardiner, and brother, Andrew. Bucky enjoyed everything there is to enjoy about sports. He participated, he coached, he refereed, he umpired, he volunteered and he chauffeured his children and their friends. Bucky also had a special place in his heart for horses and a passion for golf. Bucky spent time working in the pit, working for the Coast
Guard and working as a plumber/pipe fitter. Bucky recently retired from Local 682, where he spent close to 30 years working in the construction industry. There will be no visitation, however, the family of Bucky Gardnier invite you to join them Monday, December 4 in St. Pius X Church in Sydney Mines at 11 a.m. for a church service to celebrate Bucky's life, to be officiated by Father Hughie MacNeil.

MacDonald M. Gertrude MacDonald The Boston Globe 2/3/2006 Ann Batten Gertrude MacDonald, 100; teacher was Nova Scotia native By Elizabeth Raftery, Globe Correspondent | February 3, 2006- The Boston Globe Throughout her life, which spanned a century, M. Gertrude MacDonald of Melrose was never afraid to try new things. ''Throughout all the years I'd known her, I never had known her to drink beer," said Frank Reynolds, a close friend who knew Ms. MacDonald for 65 years, in a telephone interview. ''But I guess it was maybe a year ago, maybe two years ago, she tried beer and tried many different varieties and brands, and the one that really struck her fancy was a Budweiser with a screw top on it." Ms. MacDonald died Monday of complications of dementia at the Life Care Center of Stoneham. She was 100. Born in Sydney, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Ms. MacDonald moved to Massachusetts in the early 1900s. She graduated from Lesley College and earned her teaching degree from Boston University, eventually becoming a member of the Massachusetts Society for the University Education of Women. Although she maintained residency in the United States as a teacher in public schools in Wayland and Everett, Ms.MacDonald never lost touch with her roots, spending vacations in her native country. ''Baddeck, Nova Scotia, was her favorite place on earth," Reynolds said in a statement. ''She treasured her summers there." Ms. MacDonald also greatly valued her Scottish heritage, and was a member of Clan Donald of Scotland, as well as Clan MacIntosh of North America and Clan MacLeod of the United States. Her home decor also reflected her pride. ''Wherever she was, she always surrounded herself with the plaids, thistles, and sprigs of heather that signify Scotland," Reynolds said in the statement. Ms. MacDonald, who never married and had no children, was close with the George Burrell family of Everett and members of the Francis Reynolds family of Medford and the Edward Reynolds family of Ledyard, Conn. She is remembered as an outspoken woman who loved teaching lessons, educationally speaking, or otherwise. ''She was feisty, independent, and adventurous," Frank Reynolds said in the statement. ''She didn't mind making her opinions known." Services will be held tomorrow at 10 a.m. in the Salvatore Rocco & Sons Funeral Home in Everett. Burial will be in Puritan Lawn Cemetery in Peabody.

MacIver Violet Francis (Francis) MacIver CB Post and Halifax Herald 10/10/2006 C. MacIver Obituary: MACIVER, VIOLET FRANCIS- it is with great sorrow, but with thanksgiving, that we announce the death of our mother and grandmother, Violet Francis MacIver, who died at Victoria County Memorial Hospital on October 8th with her family at her side. Born in Habour Grace, NF, in 1918, she was the daughter of the late James Kenneth and Mary Grace (Budden) Francis.

She came to Cape Breton with her family at an early age. She grew up in Glace Bay and late in Hazeldale, Victoria County. She worked in Little Narrows and the Sydney area for many years before returning to Hazeldale and marrying Jimmy (John E) MacIver and raising her family on the MacIver homestead in South Cove. A final a move brought her to Little Narrows where she enjoyed life in the “old manse” for the last 38 years of her life. She was predeceased by her husband James Colin (Jimmy) in 1969, sisters, Blanch, Shirley, Lil, Betty, Clemantine, Rita, Gladas, and one brother Dolland. She is survived by daughters, Doris (Ken) Boyd, Boisdale, Margaret (Rob), Martin, Hatchet Lake, and sons, Rev Colin, Winnipeg, David (Linda) Coxheath, and John (Linda), Little Narrows, and two Sisters Mable MacDonald and Claras Dean, both of Glace Bay. Also surviving are 13 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. She was a very resourceful person and a creat
ive artist in cloth, thread, and yarn.

Her quilts and other handcrafts are legacies left to her family and friends. Avid reading took her on journeys over time and around the world, so boredom was unknown to her. She was a member of Little Narrows Presbyterian Church where she taught Sunday School, lead CGIT and was active in Womens Missionary Society and the Ladies Aid Society.

Visitation will be at the Dennis Haverstock Funeral home in Whycocomagh, Tuesday, October 10, from 2-9pm.

Memorial donations may be made to the CNIB, Victoria County Memorial Hospital, Little Narrows Presbyterian Church, or the charity of your choice.

We are the children of the church. We work and play together; in trusting God to lead the way; in all we think or do or say.


I noticed a number of my relatives are missing. This is the only one I have the obituary for- this is Haverstock's copy. Is there any point in sending in names where I don't have obituaries?

MacLEAN, Roderick Alexander, Maj. (Ret'd), C.D.
MacLEAN, Roderick Alexander, Maj. (Ret'd), C.D. - With deep sorrow we announce the death of Rod on September 28, 2006, in QEII Health Sciences Centre, Halifax. Rod was born and grew up in Ingonish, and although his career and life choices took him to other parts of Canada, Ingonish remained the place he loved and returned to for rejuvenation. Rod graduated from Mount Allison University in Sackville, N.B., and Pine Hill Divinity College in Halifax. He served as a United Church minister in Cape Breton, and then as a chaplain in the Armed Forces, during which time he obtained his Masters Degree in Pastoral Counseling from the University of Ottawa. In 1983, Rod retired from the Armed Forces and began a career in counseling. In 1988, he and his wife, Irene, moved to Regina, Sask., where Rod worked as an addictions consultant and counsellor with the Federal Government Medical Services Branch among First Nations people, a role he found very fulfilling. He respected the First
Nations people and their culture. Rod continued to reside in Regina, but was most content at his summer home in Ingonish. Rod loved life and embraced it with open arms and enthusiasm. He was spirited, generous, compassionate and willing to take risks. He had much tolerance for, and understanding of, other people's needs. Even after spinal cord disease made him a paraplegic in 1993, he continued to reach out and be available to others. He earned the respect of those who knew him for the courage and dignity with which he bore his disability and pain. He loved fly fishing and hunting. Rod was predeceased by his parents, Jack and Etta MacLean (Ingonish); his beloved daughter, Janet, and his dear nephew, Jason Herle. Rod is survived by his wife of 27 years, Irene, Regina; son, Colin (Dodie); grandchildren, Jessica and Stuart; great-grandson, Logan, all of Port aux Basques, N.L.; brothers, Gordon (Diane) MacLean and Jim (Marilyn) MacLean; sister, Cora Murphy, all of Ingonish;
the mother of his children, Jill MacLean, Halifax. He is also survived by Irene's family, mother, Magdalena Selinger, Regina; Vernon and Doris Herle, Edmonton; Kathleen and Orest Gulka, Scottsdale, Ariz.; William and Crystal Herle, Regina; Allyce Herle and Blaine Pinay, Regina; David Herle and Terrie O'Leary, Ottawa, as well as many nieces and nephews, with whom he had a special relationship. Special thanks to Rod's friends, Dad McClosky, Regina and Stuart Best, of Ingonish, for their support and friendship. Rod's ashes will be laid to rest in Ingonish in a private family ceremony. A memorial service will be held in the United Church, Ingonish, on Tuesday, October 3, at 2 p.m. A celebration of Rod's life with friends and family will be held at a later date in Regina.

In every deed and word she demonstrated that on a daily basis. After the premature death of her beloved husband, Michael, and with four young children to raise, she moved forward with characteristic determination. She upgraded her business skills and re-entered the workforce after almost 20 years. She spent 18 years working in administrative support at Sydney Academy where she became a trusted friend to many staff and students. Her quiet strength and grace in the face of adversity was a
testament to her strong faith and depth of character. She was a loyal and giving friend who treated everyone she met with respect. Most of all though, she was a loving and generous mother who took great pride in her family. We are grateful for the time we shared and the memories we have to cherish.

PACE J. Shirley PACE Chronicle Herald 11/22/2006
PACE, J. Shirley
PACE, J. Shirley - Passed away Monday, November 20, 2006, following a brief illness. The widow of the late Hon. Leonard L. Pace, Shirley was a resident of Seabright for over 25 years. She is survived by her three children, Beverly (Roger), Robert (Louise), and David (Patricia). Originally from Glace Bay, she was the eldest daughter of the late Reta and Lloyd MacFadgen's nine children. She is survived by her brother, Robert (Mabel), and sisters, Josephine (Glasier), Beverly (Trevor), Myrtle (Wayne), and brother-in-law, Dr. Graham Pace. A hard worker, she excelled throughout high school receiving many top prizes and went on to study at Truro's Normal Teacher's College. She later returned to Glace Bay to teach grade nine. Shirley's focus was always on her family. With the little money she had earned from teaching school, Shirley and her brothers created a family business for their father, aptly named McFadgen's Bakery. A strong advocate of education, she went on to earn a
Bachelor of Arts degree from Acadia University where she and Leonard met. The two later married and moved to Halifax where Leonard was attending law school. It would be here where Shirley would raise her three children. However, she wasn't a typical "mother of three" as throughout Leonard's political and public life, she worked tirelessly on his campaigns as both a key strategist and his closest confidante. When it came to business, Shirley always had a vision for success. She managed the finances at McFadgen's and was instrumental in helping her sons create their company, Evergreen Landscaping Ltd. Her entrepreneurial spirit did not lay solely with her immediate family. Shirley proved herself the consummate entrepreneur in opening The Christmas Shoppe and operating Canadian Christmas Wreaths with her daughters-in-law, Louise and Patricia. Shirley will be forever missed by all nine of her grandchildren. To them, she was more than a grandmother. She would not hesitate to
jump in the ocean with them on a late August afternoon at "the Boathouse" or to challenge them to improve a less than perfect test score. As a grandmother, Shirley will be remembered for the love and encouragement she gave to all her grandchildren, while teaching them to be the best that they could be. Shirley was not only a loving and caring mother and grandmother to her immediate family, she also gave her knowledge and time freely to anyone, whether they sought advice in matters of business, or simply required the comfort of a friend. Until her very last day, Shirley was a true source of energy and inspiration to all her family and friends. Visitation will take place in William Black Memorial Church in Glen Margaret today from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. The funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. on Thursday, November 23, in William Black Memorial Church. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the William Black Memorial Cemetery Fund in Glen Margaret.
Memorial donations can be mailed to 110 Bayview Dr., Hackett's Cove, NS B3Z 3J9

PECK, Joan Marie
PECK, Joan Marie - With deep sadness, we mourn the loss of Joan Marie Peck who passed away at Lakeridge Health, Oshawa, Ont., on Monday, August 7, 2006. Born in Sydney, she was the daughter of the late Patrick and Lillian (Cooper) Peck. Joan entered the Congregation of Notre Dame in 1949, and made Religious Profession in 1951 after which she taught in several schools throughout Cape Breton and Oshawa, Ont. She was a graduate of St. F.X. in 1964 (B.A., B.Ed.) Joan also obtained her Master of Arts in Mathematics from Villanova University, Pennsylvania. Joan was fun-loving as many of her friends will remember, but Joan's special milieu was the classroom with students who loved her. She excelled in teaching math and her patient kindness in explaining it made her students understand it, love it -and the one who taught it as well. Many former pupils will remember her strong passion for teaching, her carefree spirit and above all her loyalty to each of her students. Upon retiring after several years as an outstanding teacher, Joan continued to live in Oshawa, Ont. She is survived by her sister, Loretta (Don) Morrison, Oshawa; her brother, Danny, California; aunt, Audrey (Cooper) Stephen, Vancouver; aunt, Betty Cooper, Cleveland, N.S. Also surviving is her niece, Marie (Eric) Lamers; nephews, Donald (Denise) Morrison, Jimmy (Pauline) Morrison; her grandnieces, Crystal, Meagan, Mallory, Michelle, and Abbey, her grandnephews, Jason and Graham, and her cousins who were always a very dominant part of Joan's life.

REID, Karen Ann Gillis
REID, Karen Ann Gillis - It is with great sadness and heavy hearts we announce the passing of Karen Reid on Monday, November 20, 2006. Karen was surrounded by her family when she lost her courageous battle with breast cancer at the age of 48 in Ventura Hospital, Hollywood, Fla. Born February 19, 1958, in New Waterford, Karen was the loving daughter of Evelyn (Gillis) Oliver, Halifax. During the previous five years, Karen resided in Alberta with her family, however, her heart was always at home in Cape Breton, where she grew up with her relatives and dearest friends; a home she enjoyed visiting often. Karen is survived by her devoted husband and best friend, Michael; adoring daughters, Tamara (Nick) Connors and Pamela Gillis, as well as a cherished son, Morgan, all of whom reside in Fort McMurray, Alta. She will be sadly missed by her precious grandchildren, Kaylee, Kiarra and Keigan Connors; sisters, Kathey (Manning) Lee and Kelley (Bernie) Burke, New Waterford; Bonita
Oliver, Ottawa, Ont.; brother, Kevin Oliver, Elnora, Alta., will mourn her loss, along with several nieces and nephews. Prior to her illness, Karen was employed by the Laborer's Union, Local 92, out of Edmonton, Alta., of which her husband serves as business manager. She was a former employee of both the Credit Union and Scotia Bank in New Waterford. Karen's fondest memories were of time shared laughing with family and close friends. She will be remembered and cherished for her sharp wit and wonderful sense of humour by those who loved her. Karen was a determined, strong soul, and with the onset of her illness, she became an advocate to those also afflicted with cancer, dedicating her time, empathy and support in any way she could. Karen enjoyed traveling and encountering new experiences, both of which she had the opportunity to take pleasure in during recent years. No matter where she journeyed, Cape Breton always remained in her heart, and it is where she will return to
rest. Karen was predeceased by her beloved great-grandmother, Marcella Gillis; great-uncles, Sander and Joe Gillis, and great-aunt, Katherine Gillis. Cremation has taken place. A memorial mass will take place in Edmonton, as well as Mount Carmel Church in New Waterford, at a later date. Arrangements are under the direction of V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, New Waterford.

After completing his education at Dalhousie University, Dad enlisted in the Canadian Army and traveled to Europe with his young family. His second son, Timothy, was born in England. In 1956, the family again relocated to Nova Scotia where they would finally settle and continue to build the family. It was
here that it was decided to change the family name from Savlouskis to Savell. Wonderful sons, Michael, Robert, George and Thomas, were all born in Halifax. After leaving the army, Joe worked with the Provincial Department of Social Services. Upon retirement, he and Muriel moved to Fox Point, Lunenburg Co., until 1996, when they returned to Halifax to live.

Spidell Beatrice Irene Spidell Vancouver Island Newspaper Group 9/19/2006
Beatrice Irene Spidell July 21, 1901 ~ September 13, 2006 Beatrice was predeceased in 1986 by her loving husband of over 50 years, Curry Milton Spidell. They were both graduates of Acadia University in Nova Scotia. Curry served as a Chaplain with the Canadian Army in the First World War and with the American military in the Pacific during World War II. Beatrice taught English, French and Library Science for many years. The couple retired to Nanaimo in 1963 and resided at 555 Vancouver Avenue. Beatrice enjoyed artwork with the Bowen Park Seniors program, caring for her cats, bridge, charity work and maintaining correspondence with her many friends and extended family across North America. She was the daughter of Kenneth Murdoch Innes and Marie Rudolph and was born 105 years ago in Sydney, Nova Scotia but grew up in the Truro area. She is survived by her nephews David and Kenneth Innes and many great nieces and nephews including Jennifer and Allison Innes who were particularly dear to her. At the age of 96 Beatrice reluctantly accepted that she could no longer live as independently as she wished and moved to the Kiwanis Village on Grant Avenue. She is very grateful to the many staff members and administrative personnel for their individual attention and thoughtful and consistent care over the past ten years. Beatrice was also appreciative of the medical attention she received from Dr. Baird and for the guidance and legal assistance of Peter Giovando. She will be missed and fondly remembered as an intelligent and gifted person who lived life on her own terms and without compromise. Special friends include Susan Innes, Michael O'Toole and Barbara Cowling. Remembered as well are the many volunteers with Meals on Wheels, Reading for Seniors and The Pet Visiting program whose selfless work and kind attention enriched and brightened her declining years. Also thanks to Catherine Lowe for attending to many of her personal needs and requests over many years. Beatrice was always very involved with the world around her and her mind and memory remained agile and keen long after her body had failed her. She possessed tremendous spirit and when her sight failed she became a great fan of radio broadcasts of the Canucks and Blue Jays games. Beatrice and Curry lived modestly and managed their affairs so as to leave their Estate to be divided amongst the Nanaimo SPCA, Acadia University and the local Museum Society for the Region in Nova Scotia from whence they hailed. Their legacy will be a significant one and hopefully an inspiration to others. According to her specific wishes there will be a simple graveside committal at the Cedar Valley Memorial Gardens on Wednesday, September 20th at 2:00 PM. Family and friends are welcome to attend. Beatrice will be laid to rest beside her beloved husband and God grant that they will have eternal peace and never be separated again.
