Passed away on: 25/06/2010

I chose today, a beautiful, sunny day in June, with a Full Moon on the rise to take my stroll to Heaven.
I've lived to lose a good husband and father, but gained a best friend. Raised eight sons and one daughter to the best of my ability and had to endure saying goodbye to one son, before his time. I have grandchildren, and great grandchildren; there was always a young one to spoil.
My love for animals kept me busy feeding any stray that walked across my doorstep.
As per my request, there will be no visitation; cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
I am going home now; the home where my Heart is.
I am survived by seven sons, Ken (Dorothy), Ron (Dolores), Louis, Jim (Sylvia), John (Shirley), Kevin (Brenda), Glen; and one daughter, Kim (Edward) Ivany. Helen is also survived by a brother, Joe O'Dea; sister, Aggie (O'Dea) Burke; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and my best friend forever, Myles.

Tracy faced many challenges in her unique life and each one she met with a courage that can only be understood by the angels of God. Her tiniest gains were a huge triumph that changed the way family, friends, health-care providers and teachers viewed life.
Tracy also taught little children to love unconditionally and that everyone is equal in God’s eyes. She helped others slow down, appreciate the small things, and blessed us with a witness to the power of courage, strength, patience and, most of all, love. Tracy helped all those who were blessed to know her, discover something good in themselves.
Her parents, Lorraine and the late Jim Bartlett; brother, James, along with her special angels Lloyd and Patsy Mansfield have not only sustained a fragile life, but have watched it blossom under their tender, loving care.

When I come to the end of the road,
And the sun is set for me. I want no
rites in a gloom-filled room,
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little, but not too long,
And not with your head bowed low,
Remember the love that once we shared.
Miss me, but let me go.
For this is a journey we all must make,
And each must go alone,
It’s all part of the Master’s plan.
A step on the road to home.
So when you are lonely and sick of heart,
Go to the friends we know,
and bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
Miss me, but let me Go!

Thomas Bellis

Born in: Mold, United Kingdom
Born on: 06/01/1915

Passed away in: Woodstock, New Brunswick, Canada
Passed away on: 16/07/2010

Rev. Bellis of Woodstock, New Brunswick passed away on Friday, July 16, 2010.
He was born at Mold, North Wales, U.K. on Jan. 6, 1915. Son of the late William and Christine (Stuart) Bellis.
He was predeceased by his wife, S. Anne Bellis (Pratt).
Survived by nieces and nephews.
In 1930, when Tom was 15 years of age, he and his family emigrated from Wales to Canada. They landed in Saint John before settling in Bloomfield, New Brunswick. Upon arrival in Bloomfield, Tom worked as a family farm hand for about eleven years before enrolling in the Bachelor of Arts program at Mount Allison University.
Tom graduated from Mount Allison University in 1945 and from Pine Hill Divinity School in 1947 with a degree in Theology. Tom was described by his university colleagues as an actor, a singer and a lover of music and consistent with his British heritage, an unyielding tea drinker.
Then, in 1947, Tom began his vocation in Christian ministry in Matapedia, Quebec, where he met his soul mate and life partner, a school teacher, Sarah Ann Pratt.
Following their marriage in 1948 in Tide Head, New Brunswick, Tom and Ann relocated to Margaree, Cape Breton where they remained for 32 years, retiring from pastoral ministry in 1980. Tom and Ann were well received and well cared for by their congregations in Margaree, indeed a reflection of how well Tom cared for and served them. From all accounts, he was a life-giving presence in Margaree - providing youth leadership for Tyros and Sigma C, managing basketball teams and skating circles around most of the hockey players in the area. And for his noteworthy contribution to rural ministry in Nova Scotia, Tom was awarded an honourary doctorate degree from the Atlantic School of Theology
There are no greater words that can be said about any life than those written by Sir Thomas More. His words are reflective of Tom's life:
"I have lived, I have laboured. I have loved. To love and labour is the sum of living. Now the day is far spent and the night is at hand. The time draws nigh when we shall rest from our labours. But still we shall love, and we shall all enter into rest through him who is the Light, the Life and Love."
Thomas Stuart Bellis, a devoted husband of 60 years, a caring and loving presence as brother, uncle, friend, a dutiful messenger of God and vibrant bearer of hope for humankind.
Well done! Good and faithful servant. Enter now into God's eternal peace.
And, may we, find comfort and peace in the knowledge that Tom is now reunited with his beloved Ann within the arms of their Creator God. Amen.
Funeral services were held for Rev. Dr. Thomas S. Bellis on Monday, July 19, 2010 from Saint James United Church, Woodstock, New Brunswick, with Rev. Keith M. Adams officiating. A service of committal and burial was held at the Bloomfield United Church Cemetery.
Funeral arrangements were under the care of The Culberson Funeral Home, 188 Connell St., Woodstock, N.B.

He tried to make the most of it and continued to try to be employed in different jobs until he couldn’t, after which he spent at home with his best friend “Homer” (pet poodle) and going for a “cruise”. He was always known for his wonderfully creative stories and would always be good to provide a laugh to all who would listen.

Our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, Jean Buckland, passed away Sunday, Oct. 3, 2010, at the  An Cala Unit of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney, after a lengthy illness. Born in Glace Bay, she was the daughter of the late Donald John and Margaret MacNeil. Left to mourn her loss is her husband, Louis; her sons, Robert, Donnie (Wanda) and Kenny (Darlene) and daughters, Maureen (John) Forrest and Joan (Francis) Eyking.

Truly a unique celebration and a legacy to Jean's life. AlsoSurviving are her two sisters, Eunice (Danie) Cote and Leone Trainor; along with her brother, Eric (Colleen) MacNeil; as well as her special lifelong friends, Joan and George Campbell. Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her brother, Bernard (Judith) MacNeil. Jean was employed for many years as supervisor of admissions at St. Rita Hospital in Sydney, where she always referred to her fellow workers as "her girls." She will be fondly remembered for  how she was always able to find a bed in the hospital no matter who you were, in fact on one occasion she put her husband in the corridor to allow another patient to have a bed. A particular  place of happy memories, with her girls, was in the switchboard room. However, she enjoyed her retirement with her husband Lou and her family. She was a wonderful mother who, throughout her life, truly demonstrated her belief in family in her day to day  activities. She and Lou were active members of their parish of St. Anthony Daniel Catholic Church in Sydney. Jean had a positive attitude, an incredible strength and she touched the lives of many people. The family would like to give a special thanks to Dr. Ron MacCormack for the focused medical care that provided Jean with the gift of an extended three years with her family and close  friends. A special thanks to Marie MacPhee. Cremation has taken place. Visitation will be held Thursday, Oct. 7 from 5-8 p.m. at the S.W. Chant & Son Funeral Home, 564 Alexandra St., Sydney.

Isn’t it a mystery when one passes and their lifelong love is soon to follow. Our beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle and friend, Louis Buckland passed away  Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2010, at the Northside General Hospital, after a lengthy illness. Born in Sydney, he was the son of the late Louis and Helen Buckland of Newfoundland. Left to mourn his loss are his sons, Robert, Donnie (Wanda) and Kenny (Darlene) and daughters, Maureen (John) Forrest and Joan (Francis) Eyking. He was adored by his 11 grandchildren,  Amy (Michael), Laura (Craig), Gabrielle, Vanessa, Katie, Cassaundra, Kenneth, Cory Louis (Amanda), Taylor, Grace and Marcus and five great-grandchildren, Patrick, Aralyn, Keigan, Kayleigh  and Neil. Also surviving is his sister, Theresa McCarthy along with his brothers, Stephen (Delores), Gordon and Vincent (Diane); sister-in-law, Emily as well as his lifelong friends, Joan and  George Campbell. Special mention for his sister-in-law, Eunice Cote and brother-in law, Danie Cote. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his brother, William, infant sister, Theresa Louise and one month ago to the day, his loving wife, Jean. Lou and Jean were active members of their church parish of St. Anthony Daniel in Sydney. For many years he was mass lector at his parish. Lou was also a 4th degree Grand Knight of the  Knights of Columbus of Sydney where he served for 25 years. For 25 years Lou was a teacher with the Cape Breton District School Board, and for his last 10 years was principal of Park Junior High in Sydney. He also served as past president of the  Retired Teachers Organization. He inspired many young minds which he carried on later into his retirement with his children and grandchildren. He will be fondly remembered by his childhood  friends with stories from Sydney’s North end. Later, while attending university, he became an avid basketball player at Xavier College in Sydney. He moved on to post secondary studies at St.  FX and UNB in Fredericton. He enjoyed playing cards and monopoly with his grandchildren and, as he had done with his students, taught them a card trick or two. But the love of his life was Jean. As they had done  throughout their lives together, they took care of each other, remarkably, as their respective illnesses progressed towards the end. A true love story. This is a joyous day because they are  together once again. A special thanks to Marie MacPhee who assissted with care for Lou and Jean at their home. Cremation has taken place. Visitation will be held Monday, Nov. 8 from 5-8 p.m. at the S.W.Chant & Son Funeral Home, 564 Alexandra St., Sydney. There will be a Knights of Columbus prayer  service at 7 p.m. at the funeral home.

Dear Lord in heaven,

Please send her with dad and Marlene,
so she'll never be alone.
You took away her pain,
but left us here alone,
We will miss her very much,
you took your angel home.
Please let her have her wings lord,
to fly freely through the skies,
Maybe then we can see her again,
through our watering eyes.
We know down deep in our hearts,
our mom will be looking down,
And we will always look back at her,
with a smile not a frown.
So let our mom know lord,
we will love her forever so,
And miss her everyday lord,
for this, we all do know.
Sadly missed by sons, Jimmy (Isabel), Peter (Shirley), Dwayne (Mary), daughter, Carol and son-in-law, Jœy Pheifer.

Passed away in: Rochester, New York, United States
Passed away on: 31/05/2010

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Joe, at home in the loving arms of his wife, Doris.
Born in little Bras d'Or he was the son of the late Joseph 'Joe' and Jeannie (Deans Dickson) Caffiers.
He was predeceased by his mother, father and brother, John.
Joe is survived by his wife and soul mate, Doris; daughter, Michele (husband Mario LaRiccia, children Brent, Nathan, Elisabeth); his son, Mark and daughter Melissa (husband Roman Kowalski, children Margaret and Peter); his sisters, Marilyn Caffiers, Mary (Lendal MacRae) and Agnes (Nessie Astephen); his nephews, Shane, Eldon and Billy MacRae and his nieces, Stephanie (Astephen Rose), and Michelle Astephen.
Joe was a kind, generous and determined man, a devoted husband, father and grandfather. As a young man raised in Little Bras d'Or he hauled coal for his father to places such as Ingonish. In Ontario he worked for Ford Motor Company. In the US, he sold magazines (winning a new Ford car) and put siding on homes. He entered the US Army (Korean War, Fort Dix, NJ.). Honourably discharged as corporal rifle instructor, he met and married the love of his life, Doris in Trenton NJ. He and Doris moved to Fort Wayne, Indiana where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering. They moved back to NJ and began their family. He then moved to Rochester, NY and began his career at Xerox Corp. as a management engineer.

His job with Xerox took him to Europe and Japan. He enjoyed carpentry, hunting and fishing (as do most C.B.'rs) and computer chatting.
He suffered most of his life with essential (familial) tremor. Two years ago he survived a head injury as a result of a fall on the ice. Following that, he had a lung condition that got progressively worse until his sudden passing on Monday.
In lieu of flowers, Joe would have appreciated any donation made to the International Essential Tremor Foundation, PO Box 14005, Lenexa, KS 66285-4005.

Everett is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Fi (Frances Bruce) and children, Bruce (Nansea Tomalty), Antigonish, Lisa (Paul) Patterson, Sydney Forks and Glennie (Darin) Paton, Cochrane, Alta. He was dear Papa to grandchildren, James (Alison) Morrison, Jill (Chris) Morrison Campbell, Robert Patterson, Galen Conroy, Beatrice Campbell-Raymond, Laurie and Rachael Paton and great-grandchild, Everett Morrison. He is also survived by his loving nieces, Erna (Rutherford) Blasko, Elenor (MacDonald) Francis and Cheryl (Rutherford) Allen; nephews, Grant Campbell and Butch MacDonald; brother-in-law, Bill Bruce and sister-in-law, Jeannie Theile. Also dear to Everett's heart were Bill Hunter, Judy Hazell, Brenda Conroy and Lorne MacPhail.
Growing up in the North End of Sydney, his fondest childhood memories were of swimming across Sydney Harbour to Westmount and the times he spent helping at his maternal grandparents farm on the North West Arm. Everett served in the Battle of the Atlantic as a de-coder on the Frigate HMCS Runnymede. After the war ended, he returned to Cape Breton and to his job with the CNR, retiring in 1978. Throughout Everett's life, his deep faith was nurtured in the church. One of God's gifts to Everett was a wonderful bass voice which was enriched and developed by studies with May Walshman. Beginning in the St. Andrew's choir, and then with the choir of the Sydney River United Protestant Church, Everett sang well into his 80s. He was a founding member of the Cape Breton Chorale and was an invited guest soloist in many churches around Cape Breton. Often accompanied on piano by his loving wife, music was an integral part of their marriage. An extremely creative and contemplative man, Everett appreciated beauty in nature and in the arts. He had a wonderful sense of humour and a highly developed dry wit. He took great pride in the renovations and additions to their 200 year old farm house and his beautiful flower garden. It seemed only fitting that Everett would remain at home until his passing. This was made possible by the tender care provided by Dr. Steve MacDougall, the services of County Home Care, Veteran's Affairs, VON and Palliative Care. The family is deeply grateful to these people, along with the many dear friends who provided comfort and support over the past few years.
In keeping with Ev's wishes, a simple graveside service will be held with his family.
Everett was a generous and kind man, and was quick to provide to those in need. In honour of his spirit of sharing and giving, donations in Everett's memory can be made to Loaves and Fishes.
"May happiness blow on secret winds and surround you forever in the ways of beauty."

Carroll Martin Carroll CBP 04/09/2010
Our dad, Marty, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2010, at Maplestone Enhanced Care, Halifax, N.S. He was 86. Marty was born May 24, 1924 in Whitney Pier and spent most of his life in the Sydney area. He was the oldest child of the late James P. and Jane (Kehoe) Carroll.  He is survived by his loving children, Nancy (Joe Gillis), Josh and Kit (John Kelly); one grandchild, Jocelyn Gillis and one great-grandchild, Lauren Elizabeth Johnston. He is also survived by his sister, Mary Flannigan; brothers, Patrick James (Bunny) and Tom (Lillian) O'Flaherty and stepbrother, Jim O'Flaherty, as well as several nieces and nephews.

He was also predeceased by his brother, Paul, stepbrothers, Tim, Cecil, and Michael and stepsister, Nellie. Marty was a bricklayer by trade and a woodworker by design. His woodworking hobby produced many gifts for his family and friends. These gifts are an important part of Marty's legacy because they were carefully crafted with love. He enjoyed reading and reciting poetry, was proud of his Irish heritage but most of all enjoyed being with people. He had a positive attitude and was a great conversationalist. His stories of years gone by were shared with many and were always laced with a wonderful sense of humour. He also used his talents to build and fly kites for the neighbourhood children.  He served in the Second World War in England and Holland with the Canadian Army and was an active member of Branch 12, Royal Canadian Legion. He was awarded the Palm Leaf to the Meritorious Service Medal (M.S.M.) which is the highest legion award that can be granted to a life member for involvement in community activities. He worked at Sydney Steel for over 44 years, retiring as superintendent of the brick department. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Alzheimer's Association, Mental Health of Nova Scotia, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Veterans Comfort Fund or any other charity.  Marty's family want to acknowledge the amazing staff and facilities at Maplestone Enhanced Care for the loving care provided to dad and mom while they were residents.

Born on: 26/08/1954

Passed away in: Coxheath, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed away on: 17/02/2010

The family of Valerie Chartrand would like to announce that heaven has received a new angel. Our mother, wife, sister, grandmother, and friend has lost her five-year battle with cancer. She is now peacefully joining her late father Louis Arsenault and other loved ones passed.
Valerie was not only a loving wife, mother and sister, she was also a woman with many accomplishments.
Her thirst for knowledge began as a nursing student at St. Rita Hospital and continued through to St. Francis Xavier where she received her BSC in nursing. The love she had for education and creativity has taken Valerie down many paths in her career. One of her favourite adventures was D’Vals Comforting Creations. Many people still remember Valerie as D’Val the gift shop owner with a heart of gold and a black belt in kindness. You would remember her if you’ve met her. She is the type of person to touch your soul in some way or another.
Valerie was born Aug. 26, 1954, in Sydney and grew up a spirited little red headed girl on Fairhaven Drive in Westmount.
She is survived by her mother and stepfather, Mary and Maurice MacDonald; sisters, Mary Lou (Tom) Stobbs and Corinne (Kurt) Albiez and brother, John (Ruth) Arsenault. Valerie will be missed and remembered by her devoted husband, Lloyd Chartrand; her three children, Katie (Craig) Hodder, Jonnie (Kaitlin) Chartrand and Mary Chartrand. ‘Grammy Valerie’ will live on in the hearts of her grandchildren, Lily Anne and Jude Rylan.
Our family would like to thank the staff of the CBRH cancer centre and all of the angels up on the palliative care floor. Valerie herself enjoyed the many years she worked as a nurse and to be the one receiving such loving care from your healing hands touched her heart deeply and ours too. Thank you all!
Following cremation, we invite all who were touched by Valerie, to join us for visitation at Chants Funeral Home, Saturday, Feb. 20, 2010, from 6-9 p.m. A private family burial will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Valerie’s memory can be made to the CBRH cancer centre and the palliative care unit. Valerie had once quoted “Pets are like children in fur coats.”
Donations to the SPCA would be an amazing way to keep Valerie’s compassion for animals alive.

Passed away on: 17/07/2010

It is with profound sadness and broken hearts that the family announces the peaceful passing of our dearest wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and sister, Patricia Jane (MacNeil) Collins. Patsy died on Thursday, July 15, 2010 after a short but courageous battle with breast cancer, in her 75th year.
Born Dec. 23, 1934 in North Sydney, she was the daughter of the late Charles and Eva (Roy) MacNeil.
Although she was a stay at home mom, her office was the kitchen table, where she worked alongside her husband Joe, running the family business, Pat J. & Sons Trucking, for over 30 years.
In the early years of their marriage, Dad's army career saw them living in many places; Marystown, Nfld., Oromocto and Gagetown, N.B. She set sail in Quebec and crossed the Atlantic ocean with three little boys in tow, to meet up with dad in Germany; coming back with one more. They returned to Cape Breton in 1965, and brought eight more children into the fold in the next nine years.
An avid sports fan, she loved her Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Blue Jays. It was a dream come true to fly to Toronto to see her Jays playing baseball. She was a member of the Wednesday night ladies bowling league in North Sydney and Sydney Mines for over 40 years, serving as a committee member on several occasions. She volunteered with the Rotary Mile of Money, the Crippled Children's clinics, as well as a member of the North Sydney Kinettes for many years. She was a member of St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church, North Sydney.
Patsy enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles and playing cards, especially cribbage. Sunday was card night at Nanny's where she and her sisters and brothers-in-law enjoyed a game of Auction '120'. She was famous for her cooking, especially her homemade turkey soup, cabbage rolls and hamburger Saturdays 'Glory Days'.
Her greatest accomplishment was receiving her drivers license at the age of 52. Thanks Buck!
She is survived by her best friend and soul mate of 57 years, Floyd 'Joe'; and their 12 children, Glenn (Patricia), Blair, Joey (Joyce), Tanya, Bobby, Craig (Diane), Lee (Debbie), Dana (Tracey), Dawn (Bob), Trudy (Gerard), Duane, Todd (Shauna); she will be dearly missed by her 29 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren and one great great grandchild. She was also 'Ma' to so many more, as it was no surprise to find an extra pair of feet or two under the dinner table! She is also survived by her sisters, Mary Witherall, RoseAnn Gillis, Elaine Wall, Eva MacNeil, Lynn Pottie (Carl) and Evelyn MacNeil; brother Roy (Janet); sisters-in-law Marion Gouthro, Yvonne Collins, Mary Steele-Boston; brother-in-law Howie Collins, and many nieces and nephews.
As well as her parents she was predeceased by her mother and father-in-law, Elizabeth and Wilson Collins; brother, Charles (Dobbie) MacNeil'; brothers-in-law, Bill Witherall, Howard Gillis, Harvey Wall, Martin Collins, Wilson 'Jeep' Collins, Frank Gouthro; sisters-in-law, Frances Collins, Maureen Collins and nephew Thomas Collins.
The family would like to express heartfelt thanks to all the doctors and nurses and staff on the fourth floor, palliative care unit at the Northside General Hospital. Special thanks to Dr. Bernie MacIntosh, who mom adored dearly. Hugs and kisses to all her angels by her side during her illness.
Cremation has taken place. The family will receive visitors Sunday, July 18, 2010 from 7-9 p.m. in the W.J. Dooley Funeral Home, 107 Pleasant St., North Sydney. A funeral mass will be held Monday, July 19, 2010 at 10 a.m. from St. Joseph Church, North Sydney with Rev. Jim Attwood officiating.

James Ronald 'Ronnie' Corbett, 86 of Halifax, formerly of Port Hawkesbury, passed away on Sept. 26, 2010 at the Veterans' Memorial Hospital after a long illness.  Born in Havre Boucher, Antigonish Co. N.S., he was the son of the late Edward M. and Isabel (Gillis) Corbett. Although never a fisherman, his life revolved around ships and the sea. A Second  World War Naval Veteran of the Battle of the North Atlantic, he served briefly on HMCS Niobe and then more than three years on the Flower Class Corvette, HMCS Bittersweet. While on  HMCS Bittersweet, he made 18 round trips across the North Atlantic with the Convoys. He worked just after the war on the ferry (Scotia), which ran between the Mainland and Cape Breton.  With the opening of the Canso Causeway, he joined the Public Service of Canada at Canso Lock and was always proud to point out that it could handle much larger ships than the Seaway.  He served at the 'Causeway' for 44 years. Ronnie was honoured with a lifetime membership at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 43, Port Hawkesbury. His involvement with the legion  through the years was very important to him. His signature trait was the empathy he showed his comrades and to all who passed through his life...as he liked to say, a true small "L" liberal.Ronnie was first and foremost a loving family man and will be sorely missed by everyone. He was famous throughout his community for his whistling, singing (Yellow Bird), walking, good humour  and razor sharp Irish wit, which he loved to exercise at coffee club. He loved to stay in touch with people from all the neighbourhoods he lived in. Very well read, he loved to quote poetry from  his very early school days. He was a student of the political scene and human nature and always enjoyed a good political discussion, always ready with a comeback. A lifelong Montreal  Canadiens fan, he loved to torment anyone who wasn't.  He is survived by his loyal loving, supportive wife, soul mate and dance partner of 62 years, Agnes (Chisholm); sons, Patrick, Halifax and Roderick (Lynn), Edmonton; daughter, Claudine  Corbett (Jose) Lourenco, Edmonton; grandchildren, Keith (Shayleen) Sampson, Calgary, Jacquelyn (David) Cyr, Toronto, Melissa Corbett (Michael) Robinson, Spry Bay N.S., Jose Lourenco,  Toronto, James Lourenco, Toronto, Michaela (Adam) Wier, Halifax; great-grandchildren, Declan and Rylan Sampson, Calgary, Eric Robinson, Spry Bay and Ewan Cyr, Toronto.  He was predeceased by his firstborn daughter, Ronalda. As the last surviving member of his family, he was predeceased by brother, John and sisters, Emily Ryan, Hazel Power, Imelda  Fougere, Kaye Sparks, Ernesta Bezanson and two infant siblings.  Thanks are extended to all the nieces, nephews and friends who spent so much time with Ronnie during his illness. Thanks also go to the caring nurses and LPNs at V5 West Garrison, Camp  Hill Hospital who gave him so much comfort during this difficult time. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, 7-9 p.m. with a vigil service at 7 p.m. and a legion service 7:30 p.m. all in the Dennis Haverstock Funeral Home, Port Hawkesbury. Funeral mass will be  held in St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church on Thursday, 10 a.m. with Fr. Andrew Boyd officiating. The family wishes to thank John Langley at Haverstock's. Family flowers only, please. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to The Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia. Words of comfort may be forwarded to the family at www.haverstocks.com. Ronnie wanted this remembrance for the comrades left behind, who were never far from his thoughts.  "Sailors Prayer: On all the oceans, the white caps flow They have no crosses row on row But they who sleep beneath the sea Sleep in peace for our countries free (We will remember them)."

They went on to raise seven children.
Dad was a devoted father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother and friend. When he wasn't working as a coal-miner, Dad spent his leisure time in his earlier years playing hockey, baseball and refereeing. Fishing the lakes and streams of Cape Breton with his long time fishing buddies was his little piece of heaven here on Earth. The fishing stories will bring joy and laughter to his children and grandchildren for years to come.

Catherine 'Kay' Corkery

Born in: Florence, Nova Scotia, Canada
Born on: 15/11/1915

Passed away in: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed away on: 16/06/2010

Passed away on June 16, 2010, in her 95th year, surrounded by the love of her family.
Born in Florence, N.S. on Nov. 15, 1915, only daughter to George and Ethel (Norse) Snow.
Predeceased by five brothers; and husbands, Michael Corkery and Fred Hull.
Survived by numerous family members and friends including daughters, Pam, Cathy, Ann Marie, Carol, Donna, Wendy and son, Patrick, as well as several Corkery, Hodgson and Hull grandchildren and great-grandchildren, all living in Halifax, Cape Breton or other regions of Canada.
'Kay' as most people called her, loved to work in her garden on Herring Cove Road, where every piece of arable land between the many rocks was planted with flowers of all sorts. In later years, when her knees would not allow her, she would spread a blanket near the garden and weed while lying on her belly. During the cold winter months her house became a nursery overflowing with vegetation.
Her love of travel was fulfilled in her early-married life with Michael as he was a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force and they were transferred around various parts of Canada. In her later life after Michael's death she partnered with Fred Hull and enjoyed adventure in Europe and exploring North America in their motor home.
Through her dedicated involvement with the Fairview Legion's ladies auxiliary, she blossomed socially, finding long lasting friendships and contributing to community service through the legion's many volunteer activities.
But Kay's ultimate expression of her love for life shone through when she danced. Whether at legion events or in her living room with her grandchildren, she could 'cut a rug' like no one else.

James Peter Francis Cotter

Born in: Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada
Born on: 17/08/1948

Passed away in: Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed away on: 17/08/2010

It is with great sorrow and heavy hearts that we, the family of James Peter Francis Cotter, announce his tragic passing on Aug. 17, 2010 at the QE II Hospital, Halifax.
Born in Sydney, March 19, 1948, Peter grew up on Howe Street in Ashby and continued to live in his family home.
He was predeceased by his father, Aubrey Cotter, mother, Sarah (MacSween) Cotter, brother, Gerald Cotter, and Uncle Fr. Joe Cotter, among other aunts, uncles and cousins.
Peter is survived by his loving wife, Elaine (Rose) Cotter and faithful pussycats, Dolly-Wiggles and Daisy-Mae. He is also survived by a multitude of friends who knew they could always depend on Peter's loyalty and support in both good times and bad.
Peter started his media career at CGIO radio, Port Hawkesbury, in the late 1970s and went on to work in Charlottetown with CFCY radio. But the Island was always calling him home, so he returned to Cape Breton to work as a newsman with CJCB radio and later with CHER radio in Sydney. A career change to print media took place when Peter worked as an editor with the Cape Breton Post from the mid 1990s until 2008. Most recently, he enjoyed his employment with Sun Oracle in Sydney and took great pleasure informing Elaine daily about his interesting and collegial coworkers who made him feel very welcome, even if he was the old guy on the block.
Peter was an avid drummer and lover of music, from jazz and blues to rock and country. Over the years, he played with several bands of different genres. He and Elaine enjoyed hosting friends in their home; these visits always involved great food and drink and often a basement jam session with a host of talented musicians. For several years, Peter was a member of the Cape Breton Jazz Society. We know he will be jazzing it up in heaven with his musician friends who have passed before him.
Other interests included volunteering with Canadian Blood Services, being a former dedicated board member of a Nova Scotia mental health self-help organization, biking, swimming, walking, reading, history, current affairs and world and local issues.
In celebration of Peter's life, visitation will take place Friday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. in T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel, 755 George St., Sydney. Funeral mass will be held Saturday at 10 a.m. in St. Theresa's Church, Whitney Avenue, Sydney, with Fr. Jim Oliver officiating. Interment to follow in Resurrection Cemetery, Sydney Forks.
The family requests donations to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada and the performance of "random acts of kindness" in Peter's memory.
Peter, we love you. We miss you. Your drums will beat on in our hearts until we meet again.

To count his many friends would be difficult, as all who came to know Chuck were  treated as if he had known them all his life. To say Chuck lived life to the fullest would underscore the fact. His memories of younger days on lake boats, experiences in Western Canada, to  working on Hibernia and the Confederation Bridge, evoked stories about all he had come in touch with. Many were folks from home. He will be dearly missed by his family, especially his children who were his greatest joy. There will be no visitation. A funeral mass will take place today (Monday) at 2:30 p.m. in St. Joseph Church, Bras d'Or, with Fr. Peter McLeod officiating. Arrangements are entrusted to Francis Funeral Home, Sydney Mines. In lieu of flowers, there will be a benefit for the family Oct. 7 at the Blue Mist Tavern in Bras d'Or. Expressions of sympathy may be sent to d.francis@ns.sympatico.ca.

And a cure was not to be,
So he put his arms around you and whispered, “Come to Me”,
With tearful eyes we watched you,
And saw you pass away,
And although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hardworking hands at rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.

We would like to thank our family doctor, Dr. Jim MacKillop and Dr. Bruce McClelland for their ongoing medical support over the past number of years. Also the VON and the home care workers.
