HARN, Sarah 'Sadie'
Longtime resident of Port Morien, she was a devout member of St. Paul's Anglican Church, serving in its choir and Ladies Guild. Post Second World War, she was a member of the C.W.A.C. and became an honourary member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 55, volunteering for the auxiliary. She was employed by Sears Canada, working in Glace Bay for 33 years until her retirement in 1980. She will be remembered for her famous tea biscuits and blueberry muffins.
Sadie enjoyed traveling, walks on the Morien Sandbar, family picnics and trips around the Cabot Trail. And she loved her Maple Leafs, listening to radio broadcasts back in the day and watching the games on T.V. - they lost one of their biggest fans. But when Sidney Crosby came along, she quickly found a new idol!
Sincere gratitude is extended to the staff of Seaview Manor for their compassionate and loving care of Sadie, some with whom she formed a very close bond. The funeral liturgy will be held at St. Paul's Church, Port Morien on Monday, Dec. 21, 2015, 11am with The Revd. Vernon Reid officiating. Reception to follow in Kent Hall, at which time the family will receive guests. Memorial donations may be made in Sadie's name to St. Paul's Anglican Church, the Canadian Cancer Society or charity of choice.
STRONG, Elizabeth Yvonne
Elizabeth was primarily a proud stay at home mother and a dedicated volunteer in her community. After her daughter Sara was grown, she worked at the local Scotiabank. She enjoyed the friendship of her co-workers and members of the community. Elizabeth was a shining example of how a good heart and common sense could create a spectacular human being. Her legacy will be the love, dedication and commitment that were her ever constant personality traits. Her daughter provides a lasting tribute, embodying all of her mother's goodness and goes forward in her mother's footsteps.
Elizabeth leaves behind her one precious daughter, Sara (Jerry) Holland. Sara and Elizabeth's relationship transcended the mother daughter bond. They were very special together and could complete each other's unspoken thoughts with a look or a gesture to one another. Sara's love for Elizabeth kept her strong during their final hours together. Sara and her husband Jerry will forever remember Elizabeth's kind words and loving manner. Elizabeth also leaves behind many siblings, some of which she had special relationships with. She was a kind and loving sister, who took this role very seriously. Elizabeth fulfilled a very necessary maternal role in the lives of her younger brothers and sisters and became a very important caregiver during their formative years. Her endless love and nurturing through difficult family circumstances ensured them a safe and secure place to guide them into adulthood. She is beloved by them, their spouses as well as nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews. Also left to grieve Elizabeth is a special little girl Chloe and Elizabeth's two favourite fur babies, Bart and Eli McFly. Elizabeth was predeceased by her longtime partner, David Boyce. Their life together was one based on a deep love and partnership.
At this time, Sara would like to express her sincere gratitude to the 4 west nursing staff, the Palliative Care team, Bernadette Holland, and Elizabeth's special niece Lisa Penny, for their compassion and generosity throughout this difficult time. Visitation for Elizabeth will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2015 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at J.M. Jobes Funeral Home, 635 Main St., Sydney Mines. Donations in memory of Elizabeth can be made to the Palliative Care Society. Online Condolences may be forwarded to the family at www.jmjobesfuneralhome.com
