New Waterford Strands star Leo Fahey dies at 93 - Cape Breton Post

Saturday, March 02, 2019

New Waterford Strands to a Cape Breton Senior Hockey League championship title in the mid-1940s has died. Leo Fahey, originally from New Waterford, died on Wednesday at the Aberdeen Hospital in New Glasgow. He was 93. During his hockey career, Fahey was a star forward with the Strands. He scored the game-winning goal in the league championship in 1946 against the Sydney Millionaires, leading the New Waterford squad to victory in a contest that featured 96 minutes of overtime. He also played with the Stellarton Royals. "When he played for the New Waterford senior team, he was a junior-age player," said Lowell Cormier, a member of the New Waterford and District Sports Hall of Fame. "He played on the famous kid line for the Strands, which included Melvin Gadd and Doug Petrie. The team called them up and that line was the leading scorers in the playoffs." Leo Fahey Fahey, whose contributions to sport in both New Waterford and Pictou County are near-legendary, moved to Stellarton in 1947, living most of his life there with his wife Lillian and family. "He could shoot the puck both ways and I never heard of a guy that could do that," said Cormier. "I talked to Bruce Campbell and those guys and that's very rare that a person ...

Aleta Williams, trailblazing journalist with deep church connection, dies at age 94 - TheChronicleHerald.ca

Thursday, April 12, 2018

NEW GLASGOW — A local woman who has left her mark in her community, her faith and in newsprint passed away at the Aberdeen Hospital Wednesday. Aleta Williams, 94, was known to many in Pictou County for her kindness and strong sense of community. At a young age, she graduated from Maritime Business College and from there went to work in the Halifax dockyards. Marriage brought her to New Glasgow where she and her husband Murray raised their seven children, Murleta, Marty, Norma, Charla, Renny, Kerry and Julia. She volunteered her time with the Canadian Girls in Training and was choir director of the Baptist Youth Fellowship at Second United Baptist Church in New Glasgow. She has a 70-year history of playing the organ in churches of many denominations. Believing music is as important as academics, she had all seven of her children in piano lessons at the same time and she was a passionate supporter of Pictou County’s Kiwanis Music Festival. It was also she who handled the results of the...

The eight people allegedly killed by a Woodstock nurse - Waterloo Chronicle

Friday, October 28, 2016

Lamb said. "And now I'm very sorry that's the way he had to pass away." Gladys Millard Gladys Jean Millard died Oct. 14, 2011 at Caressant Care at the age of 87. Her obituary said she was born in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia and later lived on Broadway St. in Woodstock. She had lost her husband Henry Millard, the obituary said, but was survived by her son, Stanley Millard, and daughter, Sandy Millard as well as a sister and sister-in-law. Millard was a longtime member of Knox Presbyterian Church and the Rose Rebekah Lodge in Woodstock, Ont. Her obituary suggested memorial donations be made to the Alzheimer Society. Helen Matheson Helen Muriel Matheson died Oct. 27, 2011, at Caressant Care at the age of 95. She spent most of her life in Innerkip, Ont., where she was a member of the Innerkip United Church, her obituary said. Donalda Osmond, who grew up down the street from Matheson's home, said Matheson was a school teacher in Innerkip and surrounding districts. "She's always been a part of this community," Osmond said. She described Matheson and kind and smart, but fairly private. Matheson was survived by her a son, three grandchildren and four great grandchildren, according to her obituary. Her husband Carl Matheson died in 1998 and her son Neil died in 2001, the obituary said. She had also lost a grandson and two sisters. Mary Zurawinski Mary Zurawinski died at Carressant Care in Woodstock, Ont., on Nov. 7th 2011, she was 96 years old. Helen Young Helen Young died at Carressant Care in Woodstock, Ont. on July 14, 2013, at the age of 90. An online obituary for Young says she was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. Young came to Canada with her late husband Peter in 1949, who she had married in London, the obituary said. The obituary said the couple first moved to Alberta and then ended up in Ontario about a decade later, eventually settling down in Woodstock, Ont. Both Helen and her husband had enjoyed travelling, camping and had been active in the humane society and Lions Club in town, the obituary said, also noting that they had had several pets who they loved dearly. Maureen Pickering Maureen Pickering died at Carressant Care in Woodstock, Ont. on March 28, 2014 at the age of 79. She was from Tillsonburg, Ont. and was the widow of Hubert Pickering, an online obituary said. Arpad Horvath Arpad Horvath died at Victoria Hospital in London, Ont. on Aug. 31, 2014 at the age of 75. For decades, Horvath ran Central Tool & Die Limited out of London, an online obituary said. The obituary for Horvath says he headed the Hungarian Club of London for almost 30 years and that he'd been a big-game hunter. Maggie Szecsei said she was a long-time friend of Horvath. He and her husband, Joseph used to go hunting together, she said. "They hunted together for, oh, at least 40 years. They went everywhere, even to Africa one time," she said. Szecsei described Horvath as a pretty normal guy, but not one to be quiet. "Oh, he wasn't quiet. He was always expressing his opinion," she said. Married to Lana Horvath, he had two children — Susan and Arpad — and three grandchildren; Travis, Katrina and Isabella, the obituary said. Anthony Cuzzocrea said he had been a friend of Horvath's for decades — a man he remembers to have been kind and giving. He recalls that his friend loved travelling, playing poker and game hunting. "It really saddens me to hear," Cuzzorcrea said. "Someone as good as him, generous as him. As the old saying goes, bad things happen to good people. I was ki...

And in the following months, 49 other people came forward with contracts amounting to about $170,000, said Gregg. The department worked with the funeral home to have that money re...

No applicants yet for public seats on Nova Scotia funeral board - Cape Breton Post

Wednesday, 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. Rodger Gregg "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...
