COSTIN (Redmond), Marjorie Frances
The Chronicle Herald, Halifax, October 21, 2008

It is with great sadness that we wish to announce Marjorie's passing on October 20, 2008, after a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer. Her unrelenting struggles and refusals to give up were great sources of strength and wisdom to those of us who helped and cared for Marjorie. The word "braveheart" springs to mind. Music, friends and family were Marjorie's life focus. She received her early training from the nuns at the convent schools in St. John's, N.L., and received Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Education degrees from Mount Allison University, Sackville, N.B. Marjorie pursued graduate studies on the violin at the Robert Schumann Institute, Düsseldorf, Germany and was an accredited Suzuki violin instructor. She was a founding member of the Calos Youth Orchestra, the precursor of the Newfoundland Symphony Youth Orchestra, and performed with the New Brunswick Youth Orchestra, the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra, Newfoundland Sinfonia, The New Brunswick Symphony, New Brunswick String Quartet, and Symphony Nova Scotia. She was a regular performer on CBC Radio and TV. Marjorie loved teaching the violin. She realized it as an opportunity to give back to others. She taught classroom music for the Cumberland County School Board, was a music specialist with the Roman Catholic School Board for St. John's, N.L., teaching the string program at Holy Heart of Mary High School and the instrumental band and choral music program at Mary Queen of Peace School. Marjorie was a string instructor with the Suzuki Talent Education Program (STEP) and was always teaching a number of private violin students. As a testament to her teaching skills, her students live throughout the world and many of them are now doing what she loved to do, giving back to others.

Marjorie was an avid gardener, taking great pride in her rose gardens. They were the areas of great pleasures for walks with her friends and dog. She was fascinated with angels and felt their presence in her home and gardens. For more on what roses meant to Marjorie go to www.furlongjones.ca

Marjorie would enjoy her Wednesday teas and the pleasant companionship of her friends. Their motto was to be happy with what you had, no point complaining, learn to laugh, and to understand that there are some things in life that you simply cannot change. Dance and laugh, but not because of someone else's misfortune. Marjorie loved to travel and always looked forward to the next trip. Whether it was to Newport, Rhode Island, to the gentle breezes of Varadero Cuba, to watch a tennis tournament at Dartmouth College, or to have a meal in Antigonish, it was done with great pleasure. Tennis was her passion and Marjorie really enjoyed traveling to tournaments to watch Andrew and Jillian play.

Once Marjorie was touched by cancer she became actively involved in helping others afflicted by this terrible disease. She was a member of local and provincial cancer boards, a member of the national support group "Cancer Connections", and gave her time speaking at fundraisers and community groups. All those who knew Marjorie and were touched by her will sadly miss her presence and companionship.

Marjorie is survived by her husband and soul mate of 32 years, William; son, Andrew; daughter, Jillian; mother, Marjorie, St. John's, N.L.; brothers, Kevin (Sophia), St. John's, N.L.; Edwin (Jenny), St. John's, N.L.; sisters, Lynn (Ray), Toronto, Ont.; Patricia (Robert), Montana, USA; Doreen (Ron), Doha, Qatar; several nephews and nieces, and of course, Golda and Jinx. She was predeceased by her father, Michael and brother, Michael. Special thanks to all of the kind nurses and doctors at the palliative care unit at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre, Nappan and the oncology clinic at the Dr. George Dumont Hospital, Moncton, N.B. for such great care and support throughout the last years of Marjorie's illness. A special group hug to Marjorie's friends who were truly angels in their never ending support of Marjorie and her family during these last difficult and trying months. Cremation has taken place. There will be no visitation by request. A celebration of Marjorie's life will be held in Christ Church, Amherst, Thursday, October 23, at 11 a.m., Archdeacon Glenn Eason, officiating. Reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, a donation to a favorite charity would be appreciated. www.furlongjones.ca

SCHWARTZ, Sandra Anne
- Born November 16, 1962, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family early Thursday morning. Daughter of Len (and Barbara) Schwartz of St. John's, N.L.; Marina and Olav Johannessen of Hubley. A wonderful sister to Brian, David and Stephanie and a loving friend to so many that were fortunate to know her. We will all remember Sandra for her passionate approach to life. A love of photography and painting was reflected in the images that constantly surrounded her. Her unique sense of style was reflected in the original jewelry she wore and her love of colour. Sandra's extensive world travels were reflected in the ethnic cuisine that she enjoyed creating and sharing. Sandra's passion extended fully into her professional life; many years as a travel agent while completing an undergrad and masters degree in psychology and behavioral science, and recent positions with the Department of National Defense in Ottawa and Halifax. Sandra courageously overcame many challenges during her 15 year battle with cancer. Her most recent triumph was an accumulation of many races that included a half marathon only a short time ago. Sandra never gave up the fight, but her marathon of hope is now over. Her spirit will live with us forever. Our family would like to thank all our friends for their constant love and support. In addition we thank the many nurses and doctors at the QEII Cancer and Palliative Care Units. Visitation will be held on Saturday, October 18, from 10 a.m. up until the memorial service at 11 a.m. in Atlantic Funeral Home, 125 Sackville Dr., Lower Sackville. Burial will take place in Oakridge Memorial Gardens with a reception to follow at the funeral home.
