May God speed you home Aubrey! LUCY LAURA (DELANEY) PICHE - 93 YRS ICHE, Lucy Laura On February 10, 2020, at the age of 93-1/2, my Mother, Lucy Laura Piche - the strongest women I had the privilege of loving left this life to join my Dad - James Bellingham Piche in their new Heavenly home. After suffering a leg fracture in August of 2019, she remained in Victoria County Memorial Hospital until, while wrapped in my arms, she drew her last breath. Born in St. Joseph Du Moine, NS on July 11, 1926 to Marie (Aucoin) and Dennis Delaney, Mom was the last of eight children to go Home. Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband James Piche and all her brothers and sisters - Samuel Delaney, Willie Joe Delaney, Miles Delaney, Annie Rose Klein, Margaret MacPherson, Rita Deveaux, and Bernice Buckles. Surviving family are daughter, Linda Piche-Hankins, son-in-law Jerry Hankins, grandchildren Britton and Cailyn Hankins; sister-in-law, Annette Delaney; brother-in-law, Freddy Buckles, and many loving nieces and nephews. After leaving Cape Breton, NS for Montreal, PQ in her late teens, Mom worked as a phone operator at Bell Telephone, later meeting and marrying my Dad in 1961. In 1971, Mom and Dad left Montreal and returned to Cape Breton to build a life in Indian Brook. Together they worked tirelessly to build Pipers Trailer Court and for 36 years it was a stopping point for thousands of people for a meal, coffee, Mom’s famous Maragh, or a stay at one of the beautiful Ocean-Side camp sites. After they retired, we were blessed to have more family time and we gathered regularly and travelled together as often as possible. Mom was known as a tough boss at Pipers, a hard worker, a sweet Grandmother and most loving Mother. She was a voracious reader, enjoyed puzzles of all kinds, red wine, knitting and being a passenger in the car going for a drive. In recent years Dementia robbed her of her memory but her demeaner was sweet and her laughter never faded. Even in her last days, I have beautiful memories of her wiping away tears of laughter as we giggled together about something that tickled her funny bone. For the two years after Dad passed away, Mom was well loved by sweet Newfoundland ladies Liz Meade and Mary Murphy. After her fall, she was dearly loved and tended to by Jennifer Dominey (and company) and the staff at the hospital in Baddeck. On good days and bad days, they tended to Moms needs with gentle kindness and preserved her dignity until her last trip down the hall. I am beyond grateful for each person who tended to and loved her in my absence. A celebration of her life will be held on what would have been her 94th birthday - July 11, 2020. Details to follow. Memories and condolences may be forwarded to the family by visiting www.fillmoreandwhitman.com <http://www.fillmoreandwhitman.com/> Any Memorial Donations may be made to The Hospice Society of Victoria County.

Amelia was predeceased by her 2 brothers, Bill and Westley. Amelia was born in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia in 1939 when the world was in turmoil and Canada had just entered the war. She grew up in the Hub, took piano lessons that she didn’t enjoy, and spent time outside with friends being social, which she enjoyed thoroughly. Amelia loved to talk about this later in life, reminiscing fondly of escapades, adventures and the independence of wandering with friends. She passed this lively spirit on to her family, getting them to be independent and self-reliant with a quick and engaging wit. Amelia was married to Stephen ‘Gin’ Campbell at 18 and they lived on 10th street with daughters, Charlene, Sylvia ‘Tunny’, Cathy, Kim, and son, Stephen. The house was the scene of many interesting characters and stories, all lively, all interesting, and all part of life around Number 2. Amelia enjoyed the many people she met while working at Home Care, relaying stories about the different people she would meet during her working day. The last 6 years of Amelia's life were at Acadia House in New Waterford where she enjoyed talking to everyone she encountered on her daily walks, having lively conversations and not staying in one spot too long. She especially enjoyed these encounters as it reminded her of being outside after school in the Hub, meeting many different people and having as many conversations to match. Nanny will be missed by her grandchildren, Holly, Brett, Marcy, Sean, Liam, Hannah and Colton. Amelia was also fortunate to see Annika, her first great-grandchild, recently turn one year old. Cremation has taken place. Visitation will be held from 2-3 p.m. on Friday, February 14, 2020 with a memorial service to follow at 3:00 p.m. all taking place at T.J.

Well sadly today, Monday, February 10, 2020, we, the family of Gregory Thomas Marinelli, did just that. Greg was born in Sydney Mines (just a few years ago) to his amazing parents, the late Vincent and Mary Marinelli. For most of his life Greg worked in sales, representing several National companies Johnson & Johnson, Nabisco, and until his retirement last year, ASM, Bedford, NS, just to name a few, and if you were to ask any of his accounts they would tell you Greg could sell you anything you didn’t know you needed. Greg loved nothing more than spending time with family, laughing, reminiscing while chowing down on spaghetti and meatballs or turkey dinner. No matter where he was it was always the perfect occasion for a glass, maybe two, or possibly three glasses of his homemade wine and everyone knew, it wasn’t an occasion without Greg! His quick wit and sense of humour and his contagious laugh kept the party going. Whether at home on the deck, or in Ingonish, Greg was in his happy place, until these last few years, he was just as content in his second home, Dominican Republic, his bubba in hand doing absolutely nothing. Left to smile at our journey together over the last 30 years, his wife and partner in crime, Alana Joyce (Morton-Smith) Marinelli, Sydney. He also leaves his son, Mark (‘special’ daughter-in-law Wendy) Marinelli, New Waterford; daughter, Jane (Manu) Marinelli-Simm, London, Ontario; son, Jason (Tricia) Marinelli-Simm, Toronto, Ontario; step-son, Ryan Smith, Fort McMurray; sister, Marguerite (Garon) Awalt, Halifax; nephews, Steven and Sean Awalt, and families, Halifax. Also left to mourn are his grandchildren, Drake and Kristen Marinelli, New Waterford, Daemin and Yoon Marinelli-Simm, Toronto, Ontario; step-grandsons, Mason Allen Smith and Rylie Embree, Porters Lake; also, his fur baby, Abbey, and his grandson fur baby, Thor. As per Greg’s request, cremation has taken place, and a celebration of life with family and friends will be held in the future. Donations may be made to your local SPCA, Canadian Cancer Society, or a charity of your choice. So, until we meet again, we will say Ola, and know that our lives and this world will be never be the same without you.

North Sydney It is with heartfelt sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Jean Phyllis Ryan, age 93, loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and friend on Monday, February 10, 2020. With her loving husband Bobby holding her hand and surrounded by many of her children Jean was called home to the Lord. Born in Manhasset Lake, Guysborough County, on September 21, 1926, Jean was the daughter of the late Ernest and Clementine (Chisholm) Diggins. Jean was the last surviving member of her immediate family. A devout Catholic, she was a faithful member of St. Joseph Church, North Sydney and an active member of the CWL for many years. At a young age, Jean worked at the local sweet shop in Mulgrave and our dad had a very “sweet tooth”, the rest they say is history. Mom met the love of her life, our dad Bob in 1946 and they married on October 25, 1948. Their beautiful love story included hand holding, laughter, compromise and never going to bed angry at one another. Family was everything to our Mom, she always put her family first. Mom’s life embodied love. She loved, and was loved, by all who met her. Mom’s home was open to everyone, hockey billets, train travelers, even the Irish band Barley Bree and the popular Platinum Blonde, not to mention the countless friends of her 13 children, yet there was always room for one more! Mom’s kitchen counters were always full of freshly baked rolls, bread, pies and donuts, which she loved to share. All were welcomed with a cup of tea, something sweet and a warm loving smile. Jean was known to all as a true lady, a warm, loving, selfless and compassionate person, who had a great sense of humor with a beautiful laugh and a keen sense of fashion. Mom was an avid sports fan and spent many hours driving her kids to every sporting event, whether it was hockey, baseball, speedskating or cheerleading. She especially enjoyed her time spent at the rink. Mom also enjoyed the many Speech Festivals her children participated in. Her summer passion was piling the kids in the car and spending the entire day at the beach. In later years Mom enjoyed travelling with Dad to many parts of the world, especially to Florida with their family and friends. Jean is survived by her loving husband of 72 years, Bobby; her children, Wayne, Baddeck, Phyllis (Yorke) Tutty, Liverpool, Blaise (Martha), Plamondon, AB, Roberta (Gerald) MacBurnie, North Sydney, Monica (Blaine) Cooke, Ball’s Creek, Claire (Tom) O’Quinn, Vancouver, Carmelita Corrigal, Edmonton, Shaun (Judith), North Sydney, Michelle (Steve) Goggin, Edmonton, LaRose (Chester) Doucette, Halifax, Pat (Carol Kennedy), Sydney, Norma Jean (Lyndon) Johnston, North Sydney; her 29 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren; her daughters-in-law, Arlene Ryan, Petra Ryan, and a number of nieces and nephews.

Mom has left her family a priceless legacy which we were blessed with and grateful for, her love and compassion to others. Mom, you are forever loved and held in our hearts. Many thanks to the staff at Harbourstone Enhanced Care for their warm and gentle care of Mom. Visitation for Jean will be held from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. on Friday in the W.J.

From a young age Albert had a very strong faith, living his life to serve God. He was a man with a quiet disposition and a huge heart. An avid reader and an engaging storyteller, Albert loved to gather with family and friends and share stories, often with some fresh made bread that he had just taken out of the oven. Albert also had a natural talent for gardening and so enjoyed the time he spent outdoors. He made the world a prettier place with his well-placed flowers, plants, and trees. In addition to his parents, Albert was predeceased by his brother, Bruno; his stepbrother, Gab; and his brother-in-law, Bob Marcil. Albert will be lovingly remembered by his sister, Joanne Centa Marcil; with whom he resided for most of his life. His nephew, Robert (Leanne) Marcil; and niece, Lisa (Wayne) Brewster; grew up with Bardo at home and came to know him in the role of father. In turn, their children, Taylor and Ryan Marcil, and Sarah, Anthony, and Matthew Brewster; were blessed to know him as a grandfather and cherish the time they spent with him. Albert will also be fondly remembered by his sister-in-law, Ronalda Centa; nieces, Kelly (Alan) Grossert and Gina (Bill) Kennedy; grand-nephews, Tyler and Mitchel Kennedy; and grand-niece, Lauren Grossert.

Helen Theresa Boone of Northside East Bay, NS passed away peacefully February 6, 2020 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. She was born November 3, 1930 in Colliers, Newfoundland to the late John and Mary Bridget Whelan. Her green thumb was the envy of many of us, as she tended her gardens faithfully. Something was always in bloom at the Boone household. How she did it, we will never know but the house was always filled with the smell of the best homemade bread… EVER. ask anyone. A master at time management, when asked how she managed with twelve children, she replied “One takes up all your time. Twelve can’t do more than that”. Mom didn’t let raising 12 children get in the way of having a good time. Many memorable moments with friends were filled with music and dancing, or a good game of cards, while her quick wit filled the room with laughter. A stronger woman we have never known. It was a strength borne of her faith in family and the inherent goodness of all. Most importantly, this strength was supported by her faith in God and the peace that His presence lent to her life. She was a long-time member of St. Mary’s Parish in East Bay. Left with their memories of Helen are her loving husband of 66 years, Terence W. Boone and her children, Keith (Darlene – deceased), Terence, Susan, Kevin, Brian, Daniel, Robert (Joanne), Karen (Darren), Gerilyn (Blair), Celia, and Mary Ellen.

Ma Sue and Daddy Roy had a beautiful relationship and were blessed with three children, Carol Gracie (Joseph),Dale Neville (Larry) and the late Roy ‘Buzz’ (Rita Deveaux).

The loss of this petite, soft spoken lady leaves a vast hole in the lives of all who knew her. Ma Sue was a woman filled with light, joy and boundless generosity. Her kitchen was a sanctuary to family, friends and neighbours alike who would leave nourished by her skilled cooking as well as her love and kindness. Any animal who arrived on her back porch could expect the same. She truly had, as they say, a heart of gold. Sue was a woman of great faith and a strong sense of community which she shared as a member of Holy Cross Parish Council and Ladies Axillary, Glace Bay General Hospital Axillary, Royal Canadian Legion Sydney Branch 12 Executive and the Marion Helpers Association.

In addition to Gordon’s, she was employed at Gillis’ Store on Reserve Street, where she met everyone in Glace Bay. Toots loved the Mira, from her childhood days, learning how to swim by jumping off the wharf on the Brickyard Road to swim out to the rowboat and in her later years, travelling to Mira Park for picnics or camping with Billy and Timmy. Finally, her senior years were spent at the bungalow on the Brickyard with Billy and her grandchildren, Matthew and Dani. After retirement, Billy and Toots travelled to Florida every year with George and Betty, as well as other trips to Hawaii and Barbados. She loved dancing and skating, which she enjoyed to an old age. No one left Toots house with an empty stomach. Her favourite question was “what did you have for lunch”, better be met with a good answer or you were given lunch and fresh baked cookies. Toots was the last surviving member of her immediate family, predeceased by her husband, Billy; her parents; her siblings, Danny, Annie, Alexis, Neil, Robert, Fraser, Jimmy, Alma and Tina. Jean is survived by her son, Tim; grandchildren, Danielle and Matthew (Martha), and her great-grandson, Marcus. Her family would like to thank the staff at Taigh Na Mara for her care during her time there. There will be a memorial service at a later date. Donations in ‘Toots’ memory can be made to the Warden Church, Glace Bay, or a charity of your choice.

Helen Theresa Boone of Northside East Bay, NS passed away peacefully February 6, 2020 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. She was born November 3, 1930 in Colliers, Newfoundland to the late John and Mary Bridget Whelan. Her green thumb was the envy of many of us, as she tended her gardens faithfully. Something was always in bloom at the Boone household. How she did it, we will never know but the house was always filled with the smell of the best homemade bread… EVER. Ask anyone. A master at time management, when asked how she managed with twelve children, she replied “One takes up all your time. Twelve can’t do more than that”. Mom didn’t let raising 12 children get in the way of having a good time. Many memorable moments with friends were filled with music and dancing, or a good game of cards, while her quick wit filled the room with laughter. A stronger woman we have never known. It was a strength borne of her faith in family and the inherent goodness of all. Most importantly, this strength was supported by her faith in God and the peace that His presence lent to her life. She was a long-time member of St. Mary’s Parish in East Bay. Left with their memories of Helen are her loving husband of 66 years, Terence W. Boone and her children, Keith (Darlene – deceased), Terence, Susan, Kevin, Brian, Daniel, Robert (Joanne), Karen (Darren), Gerilyn (Blair), Celia and Mary Ellen. Also missing her laughter and spirit are her 14 grandchildren; four greatgrandchildren, as well as her many nieces and nephews. Greeting her upon arrival are her parents, Mary and John Whelan and son, Gordon; her grandchildren, Michelle and Nathan; siblings, Matthew, Sister Gladys, Lawrence, Aloysius, James, Michael, Francis, Genevieve, Gerard, and several nieces and nephews – all gone too soon. Visitation will be at the TW Curry Parkview Chapel, 755 George St., Sydney, Monday, February 10 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. Funeral at St. Mary’s Church in East Bay on Tuesday, February 11 at 11 a.m. Reception to follow at the East Bay Fire Hall after the service at 12 p.m. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to: CBRH Palliative Care Centre and the Red Cross.

Eliza Jane and Stan lived life to the fullest. They enjoyed traveling together, playing golf with friends, engaging in card games, hosting parties, going to dances and visiting their family in Calgary. Her commitment to staying fit was satisfied by her active participation in yoga and walking with friends. Being a die hard fan of Elvis, one of her best memories was visiting Graceland.

Always community-minded, he served as president of the Junior Chamber of Commerce, parade master and organizer of the Smelt Brook Park revitalization for which his hard work was recognized, a long-time member and president of the Seaview Curling Club, a worthy grand patron of the Royal Albert Masonic Lodge, and a member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 19, North Sydney, where in later years he also served as bartender (a job he loved). Dad loved to debate politics and he had a passion for history. He was happiest outdoors enjoying nature and he made many trips to Newfoundland fishing and hunting. At 65, Dad and Mom retired to their dream property in Kempt Head. This by no means slowed him down. He created a legendary garden which he nurtured proudly. He generously shared the fruits of his labours with family and friends as well as the pickles and jellies he bottled. Summers were filled with cookouts, parties, and fun "out the country". Everyone was welcome, Dad loved company and entertaining. For many years Dad and Mom enjoyed wintering in Florida where they made more good friends through their very active social life. Mom and Dad shared a deep, special bond; they were always together. Dad's family meant everything to him, and we are so proud to call him our Dad. Remember his jokes, wit, and charm. Rest in peace Dad… you will always be in our hearts. Visitation for Jim will be held from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. on Friday, February 7, in the W.J Dooley Funeral Home, 107 Pleasant St., North Sydney.

The youngest child of the late John and Emsie (Steele) Pace, Gary graduated from St. Michael's High School in 1970 and was employed with the local Co-op grocery store before being hired as a rail worker for DEVCO. Some would say that he should have stayed at the Co-op, as a fateful step onto snow-covered ice resulted in him being bounced and dragged beneath 14 moving coal cars in 1978. While he laid on the track in agony after the final car crushed his right arm, Gary began to consider giving up. He then heard a disembodied voice asking, “are you sure you’re going to Heaven?”. Well, Gary quickly decided that he was quite unsure and vowed to survive the accident so that he could live a virtuous life to its fullest. His mission is now complete, his worthiness unquestionable, and we can safely say he had no regrets about the career change. Gary is survived by his sister, Lorraine (Bill) Jaques and son, Steven (Zara), along with many adoring nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. He was predeceased by his beloved wife, Marlene (MacNeil); sister, Shirley (Sheldon) MacNeil, and brothers, Emilio (Lorna) and Kevin (in infancy). Gary was widely known for treating all people with genuine warmth and friendliness (unless they were an authority figure or slandered his Toronto Maple Leafs). He was a proud mentor and enthusiastic chauffeur to dozens of people who grew up in the Number 11/Steele’s Hill area, to the point that he was awarded the first-ever Parent of the Year award from the Passchendaele Police Boys Club the year after his own son left the group. But, in an act that may define him best, Gary refused to display the award at home. He was a humble and patently selfless man who only wanted to do what he thought God wanted him to do, which was mainly to treat others well. We can honour him by doing the same in our own lives. As per Gary’s wishes, there will be no visitation. Cremation has taken place. A funeral mass will be held at Holy Cross Church on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 at 10 a.m. followed by a reception in the church hall. Fr. Norman MacPhee presiding. Interment at a later date in St. Anthony’s Cemetery, Glace Bay. The family would like to thank the many professionals and volunteers who cared for him throughout his battles. Gary was an avid animal lover, so donations (in lieu of flowers) should be directed to the SPCA or an animal care organization of your choice. Online condolences to the family can be expressed at: www.vjmcgillivray.ca <http://www.vjmcgillivray.ca/> Funeral arrangements are entrusted to V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, Chapel & Reception Center, 16 Reserve St., Glace Bay. BRENDA ELIZABETH (CAMPBELL) POWER - POWER, Brenda Elizabeth It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Brenda Elizabeth Power on Friday, January 31, 2020, in the New Waterford Consolidated Hospital. Born in Sydney, she was the daughter of the late Alex and Edna (Vickery) Campbell. Besides Brenda’s immense love for her family, she also loved nothing more than a hot cup of tea and a sweet with her closest friends Doris MacDonald and Josephine MacKeigan.

Born on March 11, 1946 in New Waterford, she was a daughter of the late James L. and Gertrude (MacGillivray) MacKinnon. Finding a passion in lifelong learning, she attended many educational institutions throughout her life including Mount Saint Vincent Academy, Mount Saint Vincent University, Saint Francis Xavier University, University of New Brunswick and Dalhousie University. She worked in many various occupations including Accounting and Bookkeeping, and most notably her career as a Teacher. Lynn touched the lives of a countless number of students during her time as a teacher, working in various schools across Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia. A highlight in her career was her service with the Canadian Armed Forces as a teacher and training designer in the business education program. Retiring from teaching in 1994, Lynn kept herself busy with a passion in craft work, painting, and caring for her family. Never one to stop experiencing new things, she took on new jobs later in life meeting new and exciting friends along the way. On November 3, 1978 Lynn married her loving husband of 41 years Gabriel (Gabe) Gallant. Together they raised their son, Courtney (CJ). With Gabe being a member of the Royal Canadian Navy, he was often deployed, Lynn dedicated her life to showering CJ with love and learning. They spent many days exploring the museums and parks, or an all-time favorite “Mommy Courty Mic Mall” referring to Mic Mac Mall in Dartmouth. We cannot forget her passion for animals, where her “best boy” Matt (her Maine Coon/Russian Blue mix) doted after her for belly rubs and nap time “wif him nan”. He too is suffering her loss with us. Lynn was a passionate supporter and advocate who never backed down from a challenge. She loved helping others and worked to improve the lives of those she could. Her presence could fill a room and she drove people to better themselves, to expand beyond their own limits. A lover of music and long drives, Lynn was inspirational to those around her. Her presence will never leave us, her energy will continue to push us further. Her love will continue on forever in our hearts. Lynn was preceded in death by her father, the late James L. MacKinnon and her mother, the late Gertrude (MacGillivray) MacKinnon. She is survived by her husband, Gabriel; her son, Courtney; her sister, Judith MacKinnon-MacKenzie (Ken MacKenzie); along with numerous cousins, nephews and a niece. Cremation has taken place under the care of Atlantic Funeral Home 6552 Bayers Rd., Halifax. Funeral services will be held in late spring in both Halifax and New Waterford, a season Lynn loved.

She loved meeting new people and catching up with old friends to get the "news." She also took great pleasure in her garden and talking about her other roots, her ancestors. In her day, she was very good at reciting the winding river of connections that tied people to one another. Josephine also loved to bake, and when her nieces and nephews visited during the summer, she would try to have their favourite cookies or pies waiting for them. Cremation has taken place.
