Henry Sheppard
- It is with deep regret that we report the sudden passing at his home in Spaniard's Bay on Wednesday, October 19, of Henry Sheppard. He was 56 years of age.
The late Harry Sheppard was well-known, not only in his hometown but in the whole of Conception Bay. In his earlier years, he was engaged in the Labrador fishery, being associated with his father. But it was as a carpenter, and later as a carpenter foreman, that he was better known. When he decided to abandon the fishery for carpentry, he went to the United States and worked at several construction jobs in Philadelphia, New York and Boston, gaining thereby much practical experience in the construction field.
For several years after returning to Newfoundland, he worked as a benchman in the carpenter shop of Messrs. Mark Gosse and Sons here, meanwhile adding to his skills and putting to good use already acquired. Coupled with his wide knowledge in the construction business was his ability to accomplish more in a day than was required of him, and these qualifications assured him of steady employment, for, as all who knew him can testify, that Harry Sheppard was seldom out of a job. As a foremen and contractor, he did excellent work and got the most out of those under him by his example. Some of the buildings in this area will stand as a memorial to his superior knowledge and craftsmanship, viz. The Public Library at Harbour Grace, the office and warehouse of the firm of D. H. Atkinson and Company at Bay Roberts, and the office and warehouse of Messrs. Mark Gosse and Sons at Spaniard's Bay. For several years he worked at Bell Island building, rebuilding or adding to the several schools under the administration of the Anglican Communion there, and it was during that time that he came into close contact with the Rector of St. Cyprian's parish, the Rev. W. G. Legge, and the two became very close friends. The spacious auditorium of the Academy at Wabana is a plan conceived by the Rev. Legge and executed by his friend, the late Harry Sheppard. About three months ago he installed the beautiful stained glass window in the parish church here and this window is in memory of his brother Mark. While he was engaged in doing a major repair job on St. Mary's Church, Heart's Content, he was seized with a heart attack and was advised by his doctor to rest for a few weeks. It was therefore a shock to his family and friends when they heard of his death in less than a week. Mrs. Sheppard was in St. John's at the time to be with their only son who the day before had undergone a major surgical operation at the city hospital. Genuine sympathy was felt for Mrs. Sheppard, for their son, Jack, and for their daughter, Nellie, who was alone with her father at the time of his sudden passing. Our condolences are also offered to the late Mr. Sheppard's three brothers, John, Isaac and Arthur, all residing at Spaniard's Bay; to his two sisters, Mary (Mrs. Thomas Pynn of St. John's) and Marjorie (Mrs. James Miller of Topsail); and to his granddaughter, Marjorie Mercer.
Despite inclement weather, the funeral, under the direction of Undertaker Baggs, was well attended. The L.O.A., of which the deceased was a member, attended, and from its ranks six pallbearers were chosen; Selby Yetman, Nathaniel Barrett, James Jewer, Walter Crane, William Jewer and William Chipman.
At the Parish church of The Holy Redeemer, the office for the burial of the dead was read by the Rector, the Rev. Canon T. E. Loder assisted by Venerable W. Gordon Legge, Archdeacon of Avalon who read the lesson. The Hymns "Lord it belongs not to my care whether I die or live" and "Jesus Saviour, pilot me," were sung by the congregation, while at the conclusion of the service the church organist played the solemn and majestic Handel's "Dead March from Saul." Burial was in the family plot.

"Christ leads me through no darker rooms,
Than he went through before;
He that unto God's kingdom comes
Must enter by this door.

My knowledge of that life is small,
The eye of faith is dim;
But 'tis enough that Christ knows all,
And I shall be with him."

YETMAN - YETMAN WEDDING BELLS

St. Andrew's Church, Bryant's Cove, was the scene of a very pretty wedding on the evening of Monday, October 24, when Susie Cavelle, daughter of Mrs. Diane and the late Thomas Yetman, became the bride of Nathaniel, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Yetman. The Rev. H. M. Batten performed the ceremony and Mrs. Lewis R. Gosse, sister of the bride, played the wedding music. The bride, wearing a ballerina length gown of white nylon lace over satin with matching bolero, floor-length veil, and carrying a bouquet of autumn flowers, entered the church on the arm of her brother-in-law, Mr. Lewis Gosse. She was attended by Miss Dolly Yetman and Miss Myra Stone, both of whom wore gowns of ice blue and shoulder-length veils. The groom was supported by Mr. Austin Janes and Mr. Norman Tarrant. During the signing of the register the organist played "O Perfect Love." The reception was held at the schoolhouse in Bryant's Cove where the bride's mother, dressed in navy with matching accessories and the groom's mother, attired in wine with matching accessories, received. Here, also, supper was served and the usual toasts honoured. Mr. and Mrs. Yetman are living at Bryant's Cove for the present and we join with their many friends in offering our best wishes.

The funeral, which was largely attended, took place on Thursday afternoon from the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Brown, Bay Roberts West, to the Salvation Army Citadel and cemetery. In the course of his remarks of tribute and comfort. Sr. Capt. A. Evans, who officiated, paid tribute to the deceased for her faithful interest in, and loyalty to the church and Sunday school.
Despite the physical handicap which she bore all her life, Eva Brown Mercer always had a happy smile for everyone and it often made her acquaintances realize that "life can be beautiful" if only we faced this world's realities with cheerfulness and determination. To the bereaved families, we join with the whole community in expressing deepest sympathy on their tragic bereavement.

William J. Walsh

"He did his best!" that is enough to say
Of him we knew.
No more than that can skill from day to day
Or courage to."

That epitaph could be truly applied to the late William J. Walsh, who was recently called into the Great Beyond. "This is the ultimate that man can claim in every test, winning or failing. When the challenge came: "He did his best!"
Deceased was a son of the late Lawrence and Mrs. Walsh, so well known in the employ of C. F. Bennett and Co. Of a very unassuming nature, he took his part of life's stage in a quite, faithful way, but probably will be best remembered as a loyal and active bandsman, first with the T. A. Band, and then later with the C.C.C., when it was at the height of its popularity. Music and band practice - these were his chief diversions, and he lived up to them in every respect. With M. J. O'Brien's chain of grocery stores, he was a respected employee. He is survived by one son, at the Base, and one daughter, Mrs. Sergt. Drieder of Tennessee. The attendance at his last obsequies showed a fine sense of remembrance, and worthy of the Epitaph:
"This is true triumph! Done the final task.
He lies at rest,
No more than this will God expect or ask
'He did his best!'"

- News was received recently of the death on October 20th at Cambridge, Mass., of Ellen Eugenie (Tilley) Cosman in her sixty-ninth year. Deceased was the youngest of the family of nine of the late Arthur and Mary Grant Tilley of Elliston. Having left home in her early years she has since resided in the United States with the exception of occasional visits to her place of birth, the last of which was about four years ago.

A visit was planned for the past summer, which, owing to ill health, was not made. Surviving are husband, one son and three daughters in the United States; one brother, Duke, at Elliston; two sisters, Mrs. Daisy Butt of St. John's and Mrs. Katherine Buttrick at Cambridge, U.S.A. to all of whom deepest sympathy is extended.

Captain Norman Herald
- The passing of Capt. Norman Herald on October 21st was received with deep regret by his many friends in Newfoundland. Another of her famous sons of the sea has sailed his last voyage.
Captain Herald was another intrepid adventurer whose gallant exploits has made Newfoundland famous the world over. A seaman on his father's ship at the age of 17 - thirty-five years spent sailing from Newfoundland to foreign ports - 27 of them as Master of his ship.
Captain Herald was possessed of a keen wit, a wonderful sense of humour and a zeal for living which could not fail but infect all who were privileged to know him. What tales of adventure he could tell - of deeds of bravery and daring performed to keep the lifelines of commerce intact - especially during World War I.
His ship was the first to sail from St. John's for a foreign port after war was declared in 1914 and he continued his voyages all during that trying period during which so many of his friends and countrymen fell prey to the enemy submarine.
After retiring from the sea in 1919 Captain Herald joined the firm of A. S. Rendell & Co. as ship's husband. Three years later he became Managing Director of The St. John's Tug Co. until his retirement a few years ago. In this capacity he earned the gratitude of many visiting Captains by his unfailing courtesy and service. It would be impossible to recount the number of times he would be called out of bed to dispatch his tug on another errand of mercy. The only reward he ever desired was the sight of another disabled ship being safely towed through the Narrows.
Captain Herald's last words were "I won't make my ship tonight". How appropriate for one who loved the sea and served his country faithfully and well in that capacity.
Deepest sympathy is extended to the sorrowing members of his family. His wife Miriam, with whom he celebrated 53 years of happily married life, his daughter, Bessie (Mrs. George Hunter), his sister, Mrs. Isabella LeMessurier, living in St. John's, and a brother and a sister residing in the United States.

DUNPHY, Margaret Fahey
- It takes courage to fight a losing battle, whether it be on the battlefield or in some quiet little settlement, whether the outcome will affect millions or a dozen, and not all battles are fought on the battlefields of the world. Margaret Fahey Dunphy, beloved wife of Mr. Michael Dunphy, fought a losing battle for several years by "no surrender" was her motto and she lived each day as if she had the blessed assurance that life for her would be long and free from suffering. When she learned of the several heart operations that had proven successful she deeded to undergo one and with built-up hopes, she entered St. Clare's Mercy Hospital, where it was performed. The operation was considered successful and her family and friends were in high hopes of having her back home a cured woman, but such was not to be and after a couple of days, unexpected complications set in and she passed away losing a long drawn-out battle. Mrs. Dunphy was exceptionally well liked by her relations and friends and all who knew here spoke of her indomitable courage and witty good humour, she buoyed up the other members of her family and often from her bed, directed the affairs of the home in such a manner as to merit the approval of all who knew her. She was the daughter of John and the late Josephine Fahey, 61 Carter's Hill, St. John's. Surviving are her husband, a son and daughter, John and Alice, a brother, Thomas Fahey, residing in her girlhood home on Carter's Hill, a sister, Mrs. Thomas Walsh, of St. John's and her father, who not resides in Toronto, Ont., and to one and all we extend deepest sympathy. Her funeral took place on Friday past to St. Patrick's Church, where Solemn Mass of Requiem was sung by Rev. Fr. Burke. Interment was in the R.C. Cemetery.

FACEY, Rev. Canon
- Word came from England yesterday of the death there on November 14th of the Rev. Nicholas Saunders Facey.
Canon Facey, as he was familiarly known in Newfoundland, was a son of the late Robert and Caroline Facey. He was born at Trinity on July 17th, 1877.
Upon completion of his High School Education at Bishop Field College, he entered St. Augustine's College, Canterbury, in 1903 to train for the Ministry. He was made a Deacon in 1906 and raised to the Priesthood in 1907. From 1906 - 1907 he was Curate to the Rector of Heart's Content, and from 1907 - 1911 he served as Incumbent of the Mission of Change Islands. In 1911 he returned to England to resume his studies at Durham University and at the same time accepted a Curacy at Brandon, Durham. He did not return to Newfoundland until 1919. In the meantime he had been awarded his B.A. by the University of Durham in 1912; M.A. by the University of Cambridge 1919, and LL.D. by Trinity College, Dublin 1919, and from 1917 he had been a Chaplain to the Forces.
In 1919 he returned to Newfoundland to take up the duties of Principal of Queen's College, which position he filled until 1937. During those years, Doctor Facey traveled extensively in England and throughout Newfoundland raising funds for the maintenance and extension of the College and recruiting young men for the Ministry.
As a member of most of the Boards and Standing Committees of the Synod, including the Executive Committee, The Diocesan Synod Education Committee and the Board of Directors of the Church of England College, he played a leading role in all Diocesan affairs. In recognition of his meritorious services, he was made a Canon of the Cathedral in 1925.
In 1937 he returned to England to become Vicar of St. James the Less, Westminster, London, until his retirement in 1952.
He is survived by his widow, the former Miss Lena Reeves of St. Lawrence; two daughters: Gertrude and Nora in England; one son: Robert in Ottawa; three brothers: John in New York, the Rev. Hugh W. at South River, Clarke's Beach, and William in St. John's; two sisters, Ella and Bessie in England, to all of whom deepest sympathy is extended.
"May he rest in peace."

"Sunset and evening star;
And one clear call for me;
And may there be no mooring of the bar;
When I put out to sea."

Ester Noseworthy - All Bell Island was deeply saddened on Wednesday morning, November 16 when it became known that its oldest female resident in the person of Mrs. Ester Noseworthy, beloved wife of the late George Noseworthy had passed suddenly within the veil. The deceased lady who was born at Harbour Grace celebrated her 90th birthday September 19th. Mrs. Noseworthy came to the Island 53 years ago with her husband who predeceased her in 1933.
It was only Monday of the past week that she received word of the passing of her sister, Mrs. Rachel Clarke, at her home in Montreal in her 94th year. Mrs. Noseworthy enjoyed perfect health throughout her long life time, and listened to the Dosco News before retiring Monday night. During the early hours of Tuesday morning she was taken seriously ill. The doctor and clergyman were immediately called. All that could possibly be done by human hands to relieve her suffering was invoked, but, it was apparent from the start that her earthly course was drawing to a close, and it came as no surprise when she passed peacefully into the inscrutable silence of death at 7:30 Wednesday morning. Hers was a great faith and her passing from the Militant to the triumphant was as reaching the summit of her highest climb. She was a woman of prayer, and was never absent from St. Cyprian's Anglican Church being the oldest member of the congregation. Mrs. Noseworthy was not afraid of life, nor death, "for she had built her house upon a rock and was a woman who need not be ashamed." Death clearly shows we really own nothing in this world for a little while we are just the nominal owner to one understood this more clearly than this good Christian woman.
Mrs. Noseworthy was a woman of winsome personality with a faculty for making and keeping friends. She was kindly and jolly. A good and helpful neighbour. She was loved and respected by the tiniest tot to oldest person in the community
We shall see her no more but her memory shall remain verdant in our hearts. To her, her Lord has become a reality. She welcomed not death - but life eternal, life which Christ himself offered her. Such Christian characters as hers, such fine and noble lives live on ever shining before us to guide to that evergreen shore where she awaits to welcome us.
Left to sustain the bereavement is one sister, Mrs. Alfred Noseworthy, Bryant's Cove and one adopted daughter, Mrs. William E. Parsons of this town.
And now, as the dove returns as a symbol of peace, so her soul in peace has returned to God who gave it.

Raymond Mayo
- The traffic death of Raymond Mayo of Fortune by drowning last week on the Hodgewater Line was a great shock to the whole Burin Peninsula. The deceased was a well known figure in every community, and in particular in the educational field. Following the discovery of the body in the waters of a pond near his summer cabin, it was brought back to Fortune for burial. The funeral service was held there on Armistice Day and was attended by a large number of relatives and friends. Interment was in the United Church Cemetery with Rev. A. M. Holmes conducting the burial services. The great number of floral tributes many of them from his pupils and former pupils bore testimony to his popularity and esteem.
The late Ray Mayo was a distinguished and talented scholar and teacher. His ability and successes in the teaching profession are monumental, to his talents. It was in this field his chosen profession, that he rendered a great service to Newfoundland. Although his record gave him opportunities to teach in bigger schools and to win greater acclaim, yet he preferred to toil in the smaller settlements in a sort of educational missionary work. He was noted for his character and gentlemanly actions. He lived close to nature and spent all his spare time either cultivating his plants and shrubs or else out in the great outdoors. Perhaps, it was fitting and typical that his last hours should be spent on a berry-picking expedition and that it was the outdoors which claimed him into immortality. His talents in the amateur theatrical field was also above the ordinary. Most of us remember his many varied performances on the stage at Fortune and the enjoyment derived from his characterizations. He was also deeply religious, a student of the arts, and an exemplary citizen. For all this, in his passing, life around us will be so much the poorer.
To his bereaved mother, sisters, and other relatives, we offer our deepest sympathy in their tragic sorrow.

- The whole town was shocked and surprised to learn of the sudden passing of George Stoodley on last Wednesday evening, November 16th. Deceased was in his eightieth year.
The truth of the proverb "In the midst of life we are in death" could not be truer than it was in this case. Mr. Stoodley had been out and around during the day and was in apparently good health. However, about 6 p.m., he was stricken with a heart attack and passed into rest within three hours.
Deceased was a well known and respected citizen. He will be missed particularly around the waterfront where he was a well known figure for many years and from which ha had carried on fishing operations up until the present year.
The funeral services were held on Friday afternoon, November 18th. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Dr. J. L. Reynolds, and interment was in the United Church cemetery.
Deceased is survived by five sons, Deputy Mayor Ellie F. Robert and Thomas residing here, Roy at Grand Falls, and Max at Placentia, four daughters, Mrs. Samuel Forsey and Louis, living here, Mary (Mrs. John King) at Fortune, and Eleanor (Mrs. Walter Forsey) at Glace Bay, and two sisters Mrs. Elizabeth Ahier of Melrose, Mass., and Mrs. Wynnott residing at Liverpool, Nova Scotia. We join with the rest of the Community in a deep expression of sympathy to the bereaved family and relatives in their sorrow.
