Barrington NS Obituaries and Funeral Related News
More than 600 at funeral for NS boy who died in fire - CTV NewsThursday, April 12, 2018
You had something so magical about you, you are such an old, wise soul."
Hundreds of people had gathered Sunday at a chapel in Barrington, N.S., for a service for seven-year-old Mya Prouty, while a joint service is being held Tuesday for four-month-old Winston Prouty and four-year-old Jayla Kennedy.
Monday's service opened with the Elton John song "Tiny Dancer," which Plaizier said was the boy's favourite song.
Rev. Mitchell DeWare, a 36-year-old Baptist minister who has been providing pastoral care to the family, said during prayer that the tragedy continues to take a heavy toll on the small communities of the families.
He called on the friends and family members to "lean in" to one another and offer mutual care and assistance as they go through various forms of pain, sadness, numbness, fear and anger.
"Heavenly Father, this tears the heart out. This last couple of weeks has shaken the lives of so many people in this room and those who can't be here today. We're hurting and some of us hurt very badly," he prayed.
Both DeWare and Plaizier said in interviews that they wished to convey a message of Christian hope amidst the sadness, while giving mourners the opportunity to grieve deeply.
"It's all the more important to remember your faith foundation when your world is crumbling beneath your feet," said Plaizier in an interview from his office prior to the service.
Plaizier has been providing pastoral care to Emma Kennedy and Phillip Prouty, who both managed to get out of the house after the fire started raging.
"The wounds are so raw, and everybody wants to help ... but the family aren't sure what they need now. There is still just a gaping wound," the minister said.
Kennedy and Prouty are the parents of four-month old Winston Prouty.
According to obituaries, Phillip Prouty is also the father of seven-year-old Mya Prouty, while Mya's mother is Tamera Smith. An obituary says Kennedy is the mother of four-year-old Jayla Kennedy, and Jayla's father is Joshua Renouf.
Plaizier described Mason Grant as a cousin to the other children, but couldn't provide complete details of the relationships.
A fire marshall's report on the cause of the blaze is expected within days with recommendations on fire safety, but police have ruled out foul play in the tragedy.
Fundraising efforts were continued Monday in several communities, with the latest at Dennis Point Cafe in Lower West Pubnico.
Restaurant owner Vernon D'Eon donated a day's worth of his restaurant's food sales to the families.
"It's a small community here. The Prouty family have been in our community for hundreds of years. ..

Photo by HomeVisit) The house was ordered from the Sears catalogue for the owner’s grandparents. The Barrington model was described as retaining “the dignity of an old English home.”Affectionately referred to as the “gingerbread house,” this Cleveland Park home is for sale for the first time.
The house has changed little since it was built in 1929 for the grandparents of owner Clarissa Bonde. According to Bonde, her great-grandfather O.F. Carlson, a doctor from Fort Worth, bought the land and ordered the house from the Sears catalogue for his daughter, Dagmar Carlson Leggett.
The Barrington model was described in the catalogue as retaining “the dignity of an old English home” and the “practical interior of modern American architecture.”
[A real retrofit: Housing their modern family in his dad’s midcentury showpiece]
Dagmar Carlson met Eugene Leggett at the Detroit Free Press in 1923. She was a Texan. He was a Canadian. They married the following year and had a son in 1925.
Carlson was an unusual woman for the times. After graduating from the University of Texas, she traveled through ...

Funeral services for late William 'Bill' Williamson to be held today - Cape Breton PostFriday, August 12, 2016
We all looked up to him for advice. He was a great guy to talk to, was friends with all the firefighters, even on a personal level."
Lenny Barrington, chief of the New Waterford Fire Department, said their department was sad to hear the news of Williamson.Barrington, involved in the fire department for 40 years, knew him as not only a devoted chief, but also for his dedication to the community.
"He was a pretty outgoing fellow, always involved with whatever was on the go, whether as fire chief, for the fire service or as councillor. "
Barrington said Williamson use to drop down to the New Waterford fire station to see what was going on and to say hello to everyone.
"Bill was very humorous and very knowledgeable. He and Harold (Williamson’s son) were like two peas in a pod, always together."
Butch Chiasson served as chief of the New Waterford Fire Department for 20 years, including when Williamson was chief in Scotchtown. He said they had a close relationship.
"The New Waterford, Scotchtown and New Victoria fire departments were always close, like one family," he said.
"However besides the fire services, we were good friends."
Chiasson said Williamson
was not only an excellent fire chief but was always willing to help the fire service in any way possible.
"We did a lot of travelling to conventions and meetings together.
"Crombie was a fine man, a good guy."
Dist. 11 Coun. Lowell Cormier also expressed sadness over the death of Williamson.
"It's very sad, a tremendous loss for the community."
He said although Williamson was a former councillor and had a deep passion for the fire department, he was also very involved in sports.
"He coached the famous Scotchtown Raiders, who won several Nova Scotia and Maritime titles in fastball."
Williamson was inducted into the New Waterford Sports Hall of Fame three years ago, he added.
Cormier said he would bring up the days when the Scotchtown team was the best in the Maritimes when he'd meet with Williamson. He said Williamson always downplayed his own involvement.
"He was a very humble man."
Williamson was the longest serving member of the Scotchtown Fire Department, joining in 1951 and still active 64 years later. He was a member of the Maritime Fire Chiefs Associat...
No applicants yet for public seats on Nova Scotia funeral board - Cape Breton PostWednesday, March 27, 2019
SYDNEY, N.S. -
Anyone upset over what's happening in the funeral industry in Nova Scotia now has an opportunity to pull up a chair and do something about it.
For the first time, the Nova Scotia Board of Registration of Embalmers and Funeral Directors is offering two board seats to public advocates not connected to the funeral industry, measures taken following a bizarre and emotional mix up at a Nova Scotia funeral home last year.
"That way the public can get involved in enforcement actions when they need to be taken by the board as we'd have the consumer advocate perspective as well," said Rodger Gregg, registrar of cemetery and funeral services in Nova Scotia.
However, Gregg said, his concern is that no one has applied for the positions and the positions start in June.
"Right now, we haven't received any applicants for these positions," he said.
"For us it's a great opportunity for there now to be consumer representation on the board to represent the consumer's interest."
The board previously consisted of just the registrar and five othe...
