CARTER (Cull), Jacqueline Roberts
The Chroniclae Herald, Halifax, January 9, 2008
CARTER (Cull), Jacqueline Roberts
- It is with profound sadness that the family of Jacqueline Roberts Carter (Cull) announce her passing, early in the evening, January 5, 2008. Born October 6, 1921, in Port-aux-Basques, N.L., she would go on to touch the lives of many people, primarily as a Registered Nurse. Earning her RN in St. John's, N.L. during the Second World War, she took her role as a healer seriously and tended to nearly all of her immediate and extended family members over the years as not only nurse, but as sister, mother, wife, grandmother and great-grandmother.

After moving to Nova Scotia from Corner Brook in 1971, she made close friends quickly. She was a duty nurse at the campus clinic at Acadia University in Wolfville until her retirement in 1986. She had friends of all ages during this period. Her ability to connect with, not only people her own age, but with the many students she tended to, was a significant source of pride for her family. She was so many things to so many people, allowing those around her to learn from that. When she was not tending to patients, she could be found playing bridge, making one or several of her famous cherry cakes, watching a Deanna Durbin movie, or offering her definitive opinion on various current affairs and the state of the universe. She also contributed years of enthusiastic service to the Girl Guides of Canada. She was, however, above all, dedicated to the children in her life. Grandchildren never got old and there was always someone who needed to "gargle with warm salt water" until she could get to them and "have a look" at a sore throat. For these things and so much more, we will be forever grateful.

She is survived by sisters, Vera, Etobicoke, Ont.; Theodora, Corner Brook, N.L., and Shirley, Toronto; her children, John (Linda), Halifax; Margaret (David), Mississauga, Ont., and Peter (Charlotta), Toronto; special daughter-in-law, Pam Carter, and by her grandchildren, Bob, Wendy, Terri, James, Emma and Pierre, and great-grandchildren, Elizabeth and Daniel. She was predeceased by her brother, John "Jack" (killed in action in the Second World War); her parents, John and Amelia Cull; sisters, Molly, Marguerite "Babs" and Sylvia and husband, Henry. Visitation will take place in J.A. Snow Funeral Home, Windsor Street, Halifax, Sunday, January 13, 6-8 p.m. and funeral service will take place Monday, January 14, at 2 p.m. in St. Augustine's Anglican Church, Purcell's Cove Road, Halifax. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Canada or St. Augustine's Anglican Church. E-mail condolences: condolences.snow@ns.aliantzinc.ca

- After a courageous battle with cancer, with grace and dignity, Mom passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by her loving family on November 29, 2007. Sarah was born in Goddenville, N.L. to her parents Annie and Reuben Higgins. She will be remembered for her caring and thoughtful manner, her sense of humour and passion for life, but most of all for her love of her soul mate, Larry, and her total devotion to her family.

Sarah met and married the love of her life, Larry, and moved to Four Wing, Germany, where they honeymooned all over Europe while starting their family. They moved back to Canada where they made a few stops before settling their roots in Nova Scotia to raise their four kids. They would spend more than 51 happy years together. During that time, she worked many years in the K-Mart pharmacy and made many friends, both young and old. She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother and words cannot express how deeply she will be missed.

Sarah is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Larry; her daughters, Colleen Clendenning (Dana), Fredericton, N.B.; Donna Young (Ben), Hammonds Plains; sons, Derrick Hearn (Dianne), Hammonds Plains, and Shawn Hearn (Joanne), Fredericton, N.B. As well, she has several grandchildren who miss her deeply, Erin, Patrick, Breanna, Chelsea, Mitchell, Ryan and Jason. Sarah and her family would also like to thank all of her close friends and acquaintances for their love and support throughout this difficult time. She was predeceased by her parents; her brother Wallace, and sister, Mina. Special thanks to the Oncology Unit and Palliative Care team at the QEII, with appreciation to Dr. Virik and nurses Jill, Monica and Stephanie for your kindness.
