Cape Breton Post
July 2012


The Cape Breton Post, July 7, 2012
Born In: New Aberdeen, Nova Scotia, Canada
Born: October 31st, 1915
Passed in: Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada
Passed on: July 5th, 2012
Hazel Hennick (nee Martin)
passed away peacefully July 5, 2012, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. Hazel was born in New Aberdeen, NS on October 31, 1915 to her parents, the late Heber and Elsie (Woodland) Martin, both of Newfoundland. Hazel grew up in Sydney and attended Sydney Academy before marrying Albert Hennick in 1937. They lived in Whitney Pier until 1947 when Albert built their family home on Sutherland St. in Sydney, where they raised three children. Hazel and Albert marked their 60th anniversary December 18, 1997, just six days before he passed.

Many residents of Sydney would have recognized Hazel's voice as the one and only receptionist of Hennick's Services for her son, Ron. Together, they made sure every customer got what was needed. Hazel enjoyed her Sunday drives with Albert and later on with Ron and Betty. In the early years the summer Sunday drives were to a favorite beach in North Side East Bay, and then to the Island View property, which became known affectionately as "The Country". Many family and friends visited, swam, picnicked, and then roasted marshmallows around the evening campfire. Her grandchildren, and later on, great grandchildren competed to toast the most perfectly golden marshmallow for their Nan. In recent years, a craft show and dinner at a local restaurant were usually on the agenda. We could always count on a great visit and a hot cup of tea with her.

Hazel is survived by her three children, Ken, Sydney, Raylene (John Leadbetter), Enfield and Ron, Edwardsville. Nannie was loved and cherished by her ten grandchildren, including Darlene, with whom she shared a very special bond; 22 great-grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren were blessed to have her in their lives as well. Hazel is also survived by her brother, Lloyd Martin, Fredericton, NB; and her sister, Beryl (Steve) Elkins, Mississauga, Ont. Besides her parents, Hazel was predeceased by her husband, Albert (1997); granddaughter, Sheila Hennick (2007); sisters, Marjorie, Elsie, and Mildred; and brother, Amos as well as infant twin brothers; and special daughter-in-law, Betty Hennick (2008).

Visitation for the late Hazel Hennick will be held at the Pier Community Funeral Home, Whitney Pier, 1092 Victoria Rd. (entrance on Church Street) on Sunday, July 8, from 6-9 p.m. Funeral service to celebrate Hazel's life will be held on Monday, July 9, 2012, at 1 p.m. at Pier Community Funeral Home, All Faith Chapel, with Rev. Duncan Roach officiating. Light refreshments will be served in the reception area. Interment will take place in Forest Haven Memorial Gardens, Sydney. Donations in Hazel's memory may be made to charity of one's choice. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home. Online condolences may be forward to the family at
We will always treasure our memories of Hazel and celebrate her life by living each day to the fullest.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Eric Long, our dear son, father, grandfather, brother and friend. Eric died on Monday, July 2, 2012, at the Northside General Hospital, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Great Jervais Nfld., he was the son of Lucy (Collier) Long, of North Sydney and the late Lawrence Long.

Eric was well known as the milkman to many Northside residents for more than thirty years. Many times throughout his workday, regardless of the weather or how his day was going, Eric could be heard quoting his favourite sayings, "Gotta Love It!" and "It is what it is," bringing smiles to many faces with his cheerful, upbeat, disposition. He was an avid sports fan, particularly baseball and hockey. He spent many years coaching floor hockey and baseball and was fortunate to be a part of many championships with teams such as the "Gannon Road Aces," and "C.B. Hoare Arrows".

Eric loved playing music and even though he never took a single lesson or learned how to read music, he taught himself to play guitar by ear, and became quite good at it. He spent many years playing in a band and following his retirement, would spend time entertaining the residents of local Guest Homes and hospitals along with his friend and brother-in-law, Conrad Scott.

He was a proud grandfather and enjoyed spending time watching his grandchildren at the rink, music festivals and dance festivals. He was a member of St. Joseph Church North Sydney, and an active member of the Knights of Columbus in both North Sydney and Sydney Councils.

He is survived by his mother Lucy Long, North Sydney; his four children, Eric (Jennifer), Sydney Mines, Carrie (Greg) MacRitchie, Sydney, Heather (Cliff) Andrews, Hammonds Plains, Helen Long, Amherst; his five grandchildren, Kristen, Erica, Camden, Brendan, Lilly; two step grandsons, Koady, Aaron; his fifteen siblings, Roseleen Collier, Phyllis (Wilfred) Clarke, Mary (Alex) Campbell, Betty Burton, Carrie (Tommy) Boutilier, Louise (Steve) Smith, Christine (Melvin) Devoe, Lawrence (Judy), Garfield (Louise), Simon (Mary), Paul (Glenda), Bernard (Cecilia), Kenneth (Susan), George (Elaine), Gerald (Sharon); brother-in-law, Conrad Scott (late Mabel Scott), mother of his children, Delores Long, as well as many nieces and nephews.
