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...

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...

The real 'Father of Confederation' – Part 2 - Cumberland News Now - Cumberland News Now

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

Association of Canada and served as it’s first President.He constantly promoted the expansion of Canada as Minister of the Crown in the MacDonald administration. He assisted greatly in bringing Prince Edward Island into Confederation. He played a major role in the purchase of vast lands of the Hudson’s Bay Company, which made expansion westward possible leading eventually to the creation of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.No one believed more in the necessity to build a railroad to the Pacific Coast than Charles Tupper. He worked tirelessly on that front. In 1881, he personally visited the colony of British Columbia. At that time there was only one house in what eventually became the city of Vancouver. Yet Tupper foresaw and predicted a great metropolis.That same year, while Canadian High Commissioner in London, as well as Minister of Railways and Canals of Canada, the dream of a national railroad was in trouble. The Canadian Pacific Railway Company had encountered unforeseen problems and expenses and faced imminent financial collapse. Tupper rushed back from London and persuaded his party and Parliament to give the company a loan of 30 million dollars for four years at four percent. This is an example of the reason Charles Tupper is referred to as “the man behind the National Policy”. Building that railway and connecting the country from coast to coast was indeed a major accomplishment. Tupper himself, in one of his speeches, observed that 4 million citizens of Canada accomplished what it took 40 million Americans to do - build a railway to the Pacific.Of course we must not forget to mention strong support for the building of a canal across the isthmus of Chignecto. When the prospect of a ship railway appeared and looked feasible, he supported that with all his might. It did not come to pass, and is a long story for another time, but not due to any lack of support from Charles Tupper. Charles Tupper was first knighted in 1868 and was named a Baronet of the United Kingdom in 1888 in recognition of his service to the Empire. After he retired from the Canadian Parliament, he and his wife moved to England where he lived until his death in 1915. He often visited Canada, however, because he had children and grandchildren from coast to coast.In England he continued his public service. He sat on the executive committee of the British Empire League,which also allowed him to promote closer economic ties and the welfare of Canada in general. As an emissary of the British Crown he travelled to various capital cities of Europe. For his service to the Empire he was made a knight Grand Cross of the Order of St. Michael and St. George ...
