Buckland, Rev. Canon Basil J. 

From the Saint John Telegraph  Journal, April 6, 2010

SUSSEX - Rev. Canon Basil J. Buckland didn't see people as Anglicans, Catholics, Baptists or any other denomination.
 
 
<>He opened his heart to everyone, and would visit any home within his parish, says long-time Waterford resident Murray Hawkes.
"When he first came here, I was a warden of the church so I offered to drive him around to meet the Anglicans of the community. He said, 'There's no need. I visit everybody.'</>"He loved people, he really did."
Buckland died on March 30 at the Kiwanis Nursing Home in Sussex. He was 95.Buckland last served the busy parish of Waterford and St. Mark's, which encompassed Anglican churches in Waterford, Sussex Corner, Jeffries Corner and Hammond, from 1970 until his retirement in 1979.<>"He would have four services to tend to, and long drives in between them all," Hawkes said. "There would be a service at one of the churches at all hours of the day, and there was never a lay reader to help back then. He did all that himself and he never missed a service."
After Buckland retired he enjoyed growing flowers that were the envy of many and wrote an account of his experience as a rural priest entitled The Country Parson, Memoirs of a Rural New Brunswick Ministry.</>Buckland was born in Central Greenwich in 1914, and his lifelong commitment to serving the Anglican Church began with reading the lessons at the Old Dutch Church in Halifax in 1936. After being ordained in 1939, he served in six parishes throughout New Brunswick in his lifetime.As the senior priest of the Diocese of Fredericton, he continued to be involved in the ministry into his 90s, often covering services where needed on a causal basis, and was considered the model rural priest who was as comfortable visiting community members in their barn as their kitchen.<>In 1945, Buckland helped establish Camp Medley for youngsters in Upper Gagetown on the former Gunter farm, and was the on-site priest there for many years.
Another early endeavour was the Queens County Fair at Gagetown, where he served on the board of directors as secretary-treasurer and vice-president. He loved to spend time at the fair, and said farmer Hawkes, would often collect Hawkes' turnips to take to the fair for judging.</>
Shortly after moving from Lower Jemseg to Welsford in 1952, Buckland's place in the community grew ever more important. At the time, the largest military training camp in Canada took over part of his new parish of Petersville, Greenwich and Kars. Visiting and comforting the people who were being displaced by Camp Gagetown, many of whom were leaving homes that had been in their families for generations, became a crucial yet difficult part of Buckland's ministry.<>While he lost part of his parish and the huge Headline Church to the army camp, the gentle-natured reverend became the motivator for building a new church, St. Peter's, in Wickham and was a labourer on the project along with the members of the congregation.
After two years in Bathurst, Buckland moved to the parish of Gagetown in 1958. One of his initiatives during his 11 years there was the establishment of a Sunday school in Elm Hill, a small community of the descendants of slaves who had come to New Brunswick with the Loyalists.</>He was known to many throughout his life as "The Parson," or simply Basil, as Hawkes called him.Buckland and his late wife, Nancy, had four children, seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.Buckland's funeral will be held at the Trinity Anglican Church in Sussex Corner on Friday at 11 a.m.

Tribute to Bill Clark

Oct. 26, 2010 by MIKE MULLEN TELEGRAPH-JOURNAL

SUSSEX - Forced from his humble Queens County homestead in 1953 by the expropriation of land needed for the CFB Gagetown army base, Bill Clarke
spent the remainder of his working life in the Fredericton area.  But upon retirement from Medjuck's in 1989, the war veteran,  furniture salesman and devoted family man and his wife, Phyllis (Purcell), chose to spend their retirement years in this dairy town.It was, in retrospect, a very wise choice, says his daughter, Heather Toole of Saint John.
"Dad was very happy in Sussex," Toole said of her father, who died at age 89 on Sept. 29. "He became very involved in the community." Toole elaborated on her dad's busy retirement years in a funeral eulogy she delivered at St. Paul's United Church in Sussex, where her dad sang in the choir for many years.
"Dad was so happy to be reunited with some of the (Camp Gagetown) area neighbours," she said. "He joined many groups and made new friends.
These friends have kept Dad going for the last 10 years. He loved music, fellowship, St. Paul's, Golden K Kiwanis, St. John Ambulance and all his
Sussex connections."
He was a founding member of the Happy-Go-Lucky Fiddlers and the Golden K Ramblers, she said, and always ready to try his hand at anything that
came along.
"New skills learned included fiddling (at 70) and the Laubach Literacy Program," Toole said. "Improved reading skills helped him with the
church choir hymns.
"He was always proud of his accomplishments - and always proud of us."

Besides Phyllis, his wife of 65 years, the "us" includes daughter Heather; two sons, John (Doreen) of Sussex and David of Fredericton; one grandson and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by three sisters, Lydia, Jennie and Annie; and one
brother, Theodore.
Born in Hibernia (formerly New Ireland), 15 kilometres south of Gagetown, on May 7, 1921, he was a son of the late Byron T. and Blanche C. (Wilson) Clarke.  Byron Clarke operated a small store out of his home, lumbered and kept a   small farm.
Bill Clarke signed up with the Saint John Fusiliers in 1940 before transferring to the Cameron Highlanders in Ottawa.  He spent five years overseas, serving in France, Belgium, Holland and Germany before returning home to marry his sweetheart, Phyllis - whom he met at a dance in Saint John prior to going off to war - on Aug. 4, 1945."It is a good thing he did (marry her) because he had the name Phyllis tattooed on his arm," Toole said. "It would have been awful if he had married somebody else."

The Clarkes started their family in a small home in Hibernia, moving to Sunset Drive in Nashwaaksis (now part of Fredericton) following the
Campg Gagetown expropriation and, later still, to Woodstock Road, where he fully exercised his passion for gardening. He kept a small store in Nashwaaksis at first, but then moved on to selling cars, insurance and furniture.  The time from the 1960s to the 1990s was what Toole calls "the square dance years."
Clarke, who was a square dance caller for 23 years, and his wife celebrated Canada's Centennial in 1967 by dancing their way across the country on a special square dance train, making many new friends in the process. The dancing continued until fairly recently, Toole said, and her father was a regular at country music events right up until August of this year.
He and his wife enjoyed travel, especially as part of Nancy's Tours in later years.  Clarke was opinionated and could be stubborn at times, Toole said,
"(But) he loved people. He loved to entertain. And he loved farming in later years, and always had large gardens.  "He loved his family and he loved his wife," she added.  As she told mourners, "Mom and Dad shared 65 years of love, laughter, trials and changes. Dad's death is a big change in our family unit. We
will miss his caring, warm advice, and his love of life. But weren't we fortunate to have him in our lives for all these years?"

GRAHAM, JAMES (1806-1882) Memorial Notice                         Contributed by Frank Queen

MEMORIAL NOTICES - James Graham, Sr.

Exchanged the associations of earth for the higher and purer fellowship of heaven on the 6th day of June last, and in the 78th year of his age. He emigrated in 1829 from Fermanagh, Ireland , to New Brunswick, settling in the Parish of Petersville, where he has not only been an industrious and honest citizen, but a devoted Christian and useful member of the Methodist church in that place. Bro. Graham was converted in the 16th year of his age, before he came to this country, and several years after his arrival was appointed class leader, which office he continued to fill with great acceptance till the infirmities of age forbade him that privilege. He also filled other important offices in the church. Chiefly through his exertions and liberality was our church at Petersville built, which will soon be superseded by a  one now in course of erection. Through his affliction of over six months he was not known to murmur or complain; his clear evidence of his acceptance in the Beloved not only sustained him but made his happy and triumphant in death. A great number of people attended the funeral and listened to a very able and appropriate discourse by the resident minister from 2 Sam. 111. 38. He was great as regards his hospitality, his house was open to the stranger and was always a welcome and comfortable home for the Methodist itinerant. He was a great reader, he loved good books, the Bible, hymn book and Wesley's works were his daily companions. He was great in his love for God's house and his people. The Word was sweet unto his taste, sweeter than honey and honey comb. Enjoying this privileges of the sanctuary he did not do so at others expense; right generously did he support the minister and contribute to connexioual funds. He was good in all the relations of life. The wish so often expressed to the writer for reunion with the partner of youth and other members of his family is at length realized, Thankful are we to record that the surviving members of his family and their children are following in the footsteps of their now allotted sire.

Her true passion was music. Irma learned how to play the fiddle after Everett gave her one for her 56th birthday.

MAGEE, CATHERINE (McCUTCHEON). The death of Mrs. John Magee occurred at Hampstead a short time ago.  Deceased was a daughter of Claudias McCutcheon and was born in Ireland in the County of Tyrone, in 1819. The family came to America in 1841 accompanied by her cousin, John Magee, then a young man.  They were the first settlers and founders of Clones [New Brunswick, Canada]. In 184[3?] John Magee and Catherine McCutcheon were married. They moved to New Ireland [Hibernia?] in 1870 and bought a farm belonging to David Dunham, where husband and father grew sick of heart disease and dropsy and died at the age of 70 years. Mrs. Magee was the mother of ten children, five of whom survive her. They are William Magee of Vermont, Mrs. John Woods of Welsford, Mrs. Harry McCumber of Boston, Mrs. Rolly Haynes also of Boston, and John Magee of Hampstead.

She has two brothers still living, William and John McCutcheon, who are older than she. She had a tedious illness of five months, which she bore with Christian patience and resignation and died at the advanced age of 76 years, this year in 1892 [5?].

Her grandmother died at the age of 115 years, her father at 84 and her mother at 89. She had a large funeral. The services were conducted by the Rev. Mr. Foster, the text being: “Let me die the death of the righteous, that my last end may be like His”, the same being used at her father’s funeral thirty-five years ago. [1856]

Subsequently another house was built on the part of the farm overlooking the beautiful Nerepis Valley. Here Mr. George McKim spent his manhood days and here he died. When young he joined the Methodist Church and was a member at the time of his death. He married 55 years ago Miss Isabella South of Westfield who survives him. They had a family of thirteen children of whom four are now living, William and James who are living on adjacent farms on the homestead and Mary who married Mr. Fred Graham of Coote Hill and Eliza who married Mr. Thomas Allen Graham near Fairville. The funeral was largely attended, the service being conducted by the Rev. A D McCully. The text on the occasion Psalms 116:15, "Precious is the sight of the Lord in the death of His Saint" was chosen by Mr. McKim himself sometime before his death. When he came to this country he found it an almost unbroken forest , now it is one of the most thickly settled and prosperous parts of our province. The present generation little knows how much it owes to men, who like Mr. McKim, were the first settlers of our country.

The daughters, Elizabeth, wife of Edward Sargent of North End Saint John, N. B. Mary Ann, now deceased, wife of Cunningham Breen, Moss Glen, Kings Co., Catherine wife of John McFarlane, also of Moss Glen.

The sons are John Murphy, Blissville, Sunbury Co. merchant and farmer. David A. Murphy, of Elgin , Albert Co., a teacher. Josiah R. Murphy of Woodstock, Carlton Co., Barrister at Law. Robert Murphy of Petersville, Queens Co., trader and farmer. Rev. Wm. 3. Murphy of Mass, deceased.

He leaves 25 grand children and 5 great grand children, to mourn his loss.

In 1837 under the preaching of Rev. Mr. Jenning, Mr. Murphy was converted. Conversion to him meant a genuine change of heart and life, and he walked in the way without wavering until the day of his death. After his conversion he immediately united with the church of his choice, and lived a consistent member of the Methodist church of Coote Hill for about 54 years, unless prevented by illness, or increasing infirmities inconsequent of old age. His place at the sanctuary was not often vacant, and even up to a few weeks of his death, his voice was heard in the house of God, in prayer and praise. He often spoke to his pastor (sometimes amid great suffering), as God as his reconciled father. For him to die was gain. On the 15th, his remains were followed by a large concourse of people, when the occasion was approved by the pastor of the church.

By the deceased own request, the first verse of the 40th Psalm was read, after which he was laid to rest in the silent tomb, to await the resurrection of the Just.

MURPHY, RAYMOND LLOYD

 

It is with deepest regret that we announce the passing of Lloyd Raymond Murphy, at the age of 72, of Fredericton NB, born in New Jerusalem, NB. He passed peacefully surrounded by his family at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital (Palliative Care Unit) on Oct 11, 2015. He is survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Geneva (Siteman) Murphy; daughters, Lisa Fullarton (Larry) of Fredericton, NB and Melissa Murphy-Desrochers (Louis) of Pembroke, ON; grandchildren, Amanda Fullarton, Jonathan Desrochers and Madeleine Desrochers. He is also survived by his mother, Bernice Murphy; brothers, Reg Cox, Gary Murphy; sisters, Shirley Ward, Linda Cogswell and Anna Murphy and his special double cousin, Norman Murphy of Saint John, NB, along with many brothers and sisters-in-law and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his mother, Helen (Maxwell) Murphy; father, Earle Murphy; aunt and uncle, Ruth and John Dunn of Sussex, NB; parents-in-law, Mary Josephine and George Siteman and beloved canine companion, Emmerson. 
Lloyd was a personable, likeable, friendly man who could turn his hand to anything he tried. He made friends and left an impression wherever he went and was always the first one to lend a hand to whoever needed him. Lloyd worked in the grocery business, construction and carpentry and then for over 30 years Eastern Bakeries/Canada Bread. When he wasn't working, he was probably at Magaguadavic Lake fishing or with family, friends and the MacMinns (Dave and Brenda), or helping someone do a "Lloyd driven project". Lloyd had a wonderful artistic side, and enjoyed playing his guitar, dabbled in woodworking and most recently found a passion in lapidary work with his favourite Labradorite stone. He was very passionate about his family and he greatly cherished his time spent with them, especially during the holidays. Lloyd will be greatly missed and will remain in his family's hearts forever.
Visitation will take place at York Funeral Home, 302 Brookside Drive, on Tuesday, October 13, 2015 from 4-8 pm. A Funeral Mass will be held at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church on Wednesday, October 14, 2015 at 11 am with Father John Jennings as celebrant.

NICKERSON, GEORGE ROBERT,

born Dec. 15 1918 in Hibernia died Aug 8 2001 at his home in Richmond BC. The following Committal Service Program was forwarded to me by his nephew, Pastor Gerry Nickerson of Queenstown who attended the service.

Monday, August 13, 2001, 1:00 pm.
Valley View Memorial Gardens, 14644 72nd Ave., Surrey, B. C.
IN LOVING MEMORY OF GEORGE ROBERT NICKERSON

George Robert Nickerson was born in Hibernia, New Brunswick, Canada on
December 15th, 1918. He joined the Canadian Armed Forces in W. W. II. He was posted to Goose Bay, Labrador, and later was involved in the liberation of Holland in Europe.  George came to B.C. after the war and worked for Richmond Sash and Door and later for Citation Cabinets. George met and married Isabelle Featherstone
in 1947 and resided in their home on Heather Street in Richmond for 47 years. He is survived by his wife, having been predeceased by his parents, Havelock and Lena Nickerson, one brother, Lloyd, and one sister, Grace (Duke).  George was well known to the residents of Richmond, having been able to make frequent use of his bicycle right up to the time of his passing. Some fondly remember him as the "bikeman". Notably he attended the Armistice Day Service each year dressed in his WWII uniform. George became a Christian after the war, was very faithful in his church attendance, and loved occupying himself with practical endeavors. Rebuilt primarily from parts collected from roadside or sometimes contributed, George reassembled in his attic literally hundreds (400 plus) of bicycles for shipment to the Ukraine and South America for use by pastors.  He will be missed. 
Hymns: "Mansion Over The Hilltop"; "Amazing Grace"


 

 

Nickerson,   Stirling LLOYD

1940-2014

Treasurer BGCHA
 

It is with great sadness that the family announces the death of Stirling Lloyd Nickerson, age 73, husband of Marilyn (Hoyt) Nickerson of Queenstown, NB, on Friday, February 7, 2014. He was born in Saint John on December 5, 1940, the son of the late Lloyd and Ethel (Lyon) Nickerson.

Stirling was born in Saint John on December 5, 1940. His first ten years of life were spent growing up on his Grandfather Lyon’s farm in Armstrongs Corner.   In 1950, he and his family moved to Queenstown, ahead of the expropriation of land for Base Gagetown.   In 1958, he attended Sussex High School where he met the love of his life, Marilyn Hoyt.  They married on July 4, 1964.  He always liked to joke it was Independence Day, the day he lost his independence.  He graduated from Technical School in 1966, and worked in Industrial Instrumentation in Dalhousie, Lake Utopia, and Saint John. He became a Dad during these years to Shelley, Wendy and Terry, who in years to come provided him with the grandchildren he loved so much – Kara, Cody and Rylan.

In 1979, he finally realized his life-long dream when he moved to Queenstown to become a full-time farmer, and he never looked back.  He embraced the hard work that was involved and was never happier.  He loved Queenstown and the people who lived there and tried to be available whenever help was needed. 

He was a busy man, and had many interests, like beekeeping, playing cribbage and learning to play the fiddle.  Just last week, he donated plasma, his 176th donation of blood products.  He was treasurer of Base Gagetown Historical Association and an associate member of the Royal Canadian Legion.   He was treasurer of the Queenstown Baptist church.  He was a former member of the Eastern Charlotte Lion’s club and a current member of the Jemseg Lion’s Club, where he passionately promoted fundraising for The Imagination Library (http://ca.imaginationlibrary.com).

Oh how he loved his music- variety shows, benefit shows, Gagetown fair, church, dances, weddings and funerals.  He so enjoyed his time with The Queenston Trio, Three Point Hitch, and The River Singers.  Another dream was realized when he was able to join the gospel group, Living Water.

Thank you all for your love and support during this difficult time.

He is survived by his wife Marilyn; son Terry and Kristie of Regina, SK; daughters Shelley Nickerson and  Wendy Peters both of Lincoln; grandchildren Kara Allen, Cody Peters, Rylan Nickerson; brothers Gerald and Jean Nickerson of Queenstown and Gregory Nickerson of Fredericton; sister Joan and Frank Henderson of Saint John; several nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by brothers David and Allan and sister Mary.

Arrangements entrusted to Sherwood's Funeral Home and Life Tribute Centre, 18 Scovil Road, Norton, NB, E5T 1Z2, with visiting on Tuesday from 6 to 8 pm and Wednesday from 2 to 5 and 6 to 8 pm.

From the Weekly Telegraph, St. John, NB. August 31,1898 and reprinted in the April 1998 issue of The Queens County Heritage.

PENDER, JOHN (Father of James Pender of the Nail Factory Story.) "The death occurred Thursday at his residence, Main street, of Mr. John Pender, well and favorably known to a large number in the city, and throughout the province. Mr. Pender was born in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1809, and came to this country with his father, the late James Pender, in 1820. After a short residence in St. John, where he did business, James Pender secured a grant of land in Petersville, Queens County, and moved there with his family. The Pender family were counted among the most industrious in the neighborhood. In addition to the work on the farm they built wagons and sleds, and the late John Pender when a young man, erected the most extensive grist mill in that section of the country. The original mill was destroyed by fire, but on its site was constructed another and a better mill, to which was added a carding machine, which was also burned a few years ago.

In 1845 he married Jane, daughter of the late William Christie of Kings County, and sister of Drs. James and William, and Alexander Christie of this city. She died three
years ago. Ten years ago Mr. Pender retired from business and disposed of his property in Petersville and came to St. John to reside. He was well informed on the early history of the province, and his descriptions of pioneer life in New Brunswick
were always interesting.

Quite a large family survive him. His eldest son is James Pender of the James Pender Nail Company. Two sons, John and William. and two daughters, Annie and Sarah reside in Melbourne, Australia. William is now on a visit to New Brunswick. Miss Pender, with whom he lived, also survives. One son and one daughter died before him.  Mrs. A.G. Bowes of this city, Mrs. Hugh Miller and Mrs. John Young, both of Glassville, Carleton county are sisters."

Bill Schwetz Tribute

From the Saint John Telegraph Journal, Aug. 12, 2009

CORN HILL - Bill Schwetz always made friends easily, even when they ere of the four-legged variety. He made the childhood relationships he created last a lifetime, and when  he farmed in Corn Hill, he extended his love to his animals. "He just loved animals," said Marilyn, his wife of 42 years. Bill would name them all, she said, and would be heartbroken when it was time for slaughtering.
"He could go to the pasture and the cows followed him around. He could put his arms around any one of them and they would stay so calm," she said of the Holsteins that Bill considered pets.The retired dairy farmer died on Aug. 3 at the age of 71.
It was in 1976 when the Schwetz family sold the farm."Things changed then in farming," Marilyn explained. "The small family
farm became a thing of the past, almost. You had to be really big or not at all. "Bill always missed the animals and working the land and haying, he had a real love for it. He always considered himself a farmer even though in later years he didn't farm anymore."
Bill was born in Summer Hill, Queens County. He stayed on his family's farm until he turned 15, when the land was expropriated, and today, that same family homestead is long gone.
"Where he was born is smack dab in the middle of what is now Camp Gagetown," Marilyn said. "In some ways he still considered that home.
The friendships he made when he lived there continued to the day he died. "He always liked to go back, and even though the buildings were gone, he knew by the lay of the land and the trees where every driveway and house once sat. He knew every inch of it." In 1962 Bill met Marilyn Kyle, the girl next door to his family's new Corn Hill farm (which he eventually took over), while she was training to be a nurse. They married four years later and had a daughter and son, Katrina and Stephen.
"We did everything together," Marilyn said. "We fished and hunted and toured around - we had a wonderful life."
After Bill sold the farm he began working as a machine operator at Sussex Concentrates, where he remained until it closed in 1990
During his life Bill enjoyed his family first, and had a real passion for hunting and fishing, but especially cars. In the mid-1980s he bought a 1956 Chev Belair, which he loved to show off in many car shows around the province, and later became a member of the New Brunswick Antique Auto Club He had a great memory for dates and events, Marilyn said, and had an incredible ear for music, especially country and western. He even taught himself to play the accordion at an early age, she added, and he only
had to hear a tune once before he was able to play it During his retirement, he cherished moments with his two grandchildren,
Charlie and Brady, and made it a priority to share time and stories with lifelong friends, and forging new ones.
"Bill was the type of man who would just talk to anyone, and everyone liked him," Marilyn said. Last year, she added, when Bill was not well, he would accompany her to Sussex and sit in the car while she got groceries. "Invariably, when I came out of the store, he would be talking to someone - usually someone he had never met before," she said. "He was so outgoing and had a real interest in people."

STARR, MURIEL HELEN (NEE WOODS)

Muriel Helen Starr entered this world on November 3, 1916 in Saint John, N.B. and departed 92 years later on November 21, 2008 in Parksville, B.C. Between those dates Muriel lived a long and wonderful life for which she often expressed her gratitude.  The eldest daughter (sister of Pearl) of Robert Woods and Jennie McKinney, she lived and worked in Saint John until her marriage to Jack (John) Starr of the same city.

As a child, Muriel enjoyed many visits to Summerhill and the surrounding areas to see her relatives.  She often talked of her wonderful childhood memories growing up in Saint John.  Muriel and Jack spent many years in Ottawa where Jack pursued his career with the RCAF. There they raised their   family of three daughters. While in Ottawa, Muriel returned to work; first with the Ottawa Board of Education, later as a legal secretary in the Tax Appeal Board   of the federal government.  She was a stickler for spelling and grammar; even at age 90 she would offer correction!

Muriel and Jack retired to Brentwood Bay, BC on Vancouver Island in 1972. They took great pleasure in introducing visitors to their new-found paradise. Muriel remained in Brentwood for a decade after the
death of her husband; then relocated to Parksville, BC. Here, with the addition of homemaker services and the proximity of her daughter Jaynie, she was able to maintain an active lifestyle for many years. During the past year advanced age caught up with her and Muriel moved to Stanford Place where she received excellent care.

Muriel is survived by her three daughters; Jaynie Starr of Parksville, Elaine LaRiviere (Greg) of Brentwood Bay, and Miriam Wilson (Barry) of Kemptville, ON.   She is also survived by her grandchildren Rebecca, Zachary and Jacob Stevenson; Nick and Sylvie LaRiviere; Sarah and Graham Wilson; as well as Great granddaughter Naomi Wilson. Muriel will be fondly remembered by her two lifelong friends; Melva Floyd and Marion Seely both of Ottawa and originally from NB. The
family thanks all those from Saint John and New Brunswick who stayed in touch with Muriel over the years especially her cousin Leona Lyon of Welsford whose friendship lasted a lifetime.

There will be no public memorial service. In honour of Muriel the family will add a plaque to a bench dedicated to her husband in Brentwood Bay. As well, a tree will be planted in her memory in Parksville.

Muriel's family wishes to thank all those who brought joy to her life; and a special thanks to those who cared for her in her final years. Muriel, your smile and disposition were as bright as your favourite yellow raincoat! You will be missed.
