North Sydney
Cape Breton Post on Tuesday September 21, 2004
Rachel Miller Luffman
, 91, formerly of North Sydney, passed away Friday, Jan. 9, 2004, in Northwood Centre, Halifax. Born in Hay Cove, Nfld, Jan. 3, 1913, she moved with her family to North Sydney in 1916 and remained a resident until the early 1990s. Subsequently she moved to Dartmouth and since 1996 was a resident at Northwood. (Photo: Wedding day, Nov. 26, 1936).
Surviving are sons, William (Bill), Maine, U.S.A., Earl, Hackett's Cove, N.S., grand-sons, Michael and Zachary and granddaughter, Petra. She was predeceased by her parents, Charles and Rhoda (Miller) Senior, husband, William Alexander, who was killed in a mining accident in Sydney Mines in 1938; sisters, Edith, Rebecca (Bea), Jessie (Jaye), Edra Belle and brothers, Frederick, Noah and Hubert.

Throughout Rachel's life, Edie Munn (North Sydney) remained a stalwart friend and in more recent years Kaye Purcell, formerly of Dartmouth and now Ottawa, who by action showed that her love, kindness and friendship was boundless.

Cremation has taken place. Final arrangement will take place at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to the Northwood Foundation, whose staff always treated Rachel with love and understanding, often during difficult and trying times or the neonatal unit, Izaak Walton Killam Hospital for Children, whose staff ensured the survival of her prematurely born grandson, Zachary.
