North Bay family prepares for Jennifer Lynne Semenec's funeral - The North Bay Nugget

Saturday, March 02, 2019

Marc J. Poulin's descent into tragedy might have been avoided.Word of the couple's deaths came with a phone call from an RCMP detective who'd been at the scene in Springhill, N.S., when the bodies were found on March 20.The officer told Jessica Ridley her 45-year-old sister was the victim of "blunt force trauma to the head" and that Poulin, 42, had taken his own life after a fire was set in the small white house they were renovating.The couple, who had been together for about 15 months, had moved east to renovate a home and begin a new life together. Amidst her grief, Ridley finds herself wondering what happened in the small Nova Scotia town three weeks ago, and concludes no definitive answer is possible."He might have been having flashbacks. … The only two people who know what happened are not here," Ridley said in an interview from her home in Sudbury. "I'm just trying to keep an open mind."Semenec's daughter, 18-year-old Alia Woodward, lived with the couple for almost a year after Poulin started dating her mother in December 2016 and then moved into their North Bay home in early spring.She describes Semenec as a personal care worker for seniors who was also "a neighbourhood mom," eager to be involved with both her friends and those of her 24-year-old brother, Zachary Semenec, who also lived at home.Her shock at Semenec's death stems in part from having witnessed what appeared to be a strong bond between her mother and her new partner."In my mind, maybe he had issues, but the thing she lik...

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...

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...
