ANDERSON, Jean - Age 82 years, passed away peacefully at St. Joseph's Hospice on Wednesday, September 26, 2001. Born Jean Chancey in St. John's, Newfoundland on July 1, 1919, she was raised and educated there. She enjoyed her work as a transportation secretary at the U.S. Army base in St. John's during WWII, then later worked at The Bank of Commerce where she met her husband-to-be. In 1947, Jean married Andrew "Duke" Anderson of Glace Bay, Nova Scotia. After their children, Charlie and Janet, were born, Jean and Duke moved to Cornwall, Ontario, then to Halifax, Nova Scotia and, later, to Clarkson (Mississauga), Ontario. Duke retired from the bank in 1971 and, at last, they settled in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia where they enjoyed a retirement surrounded by family and friends. After Duke passed away, Jean joined her daughter, Jan, and son-in-law, Ron Saddington, when they bought their first old house in St. Catharine's, Ontario in 1981. When they moved to Thunder Bay in 1983, Jean was persuaded to come along for the adventure! She was every young family's dream, a loving, wise and energetic "third parent" to her two small grandsons, Andrew and Charlie, as well as an extraordinary cook, skilled homemaker and entertaining storyteller! Jean's son, Charlie Anderson, of Vancouver, B.C. along with his children, Ted, Duke and Merida and his partner, Lynn Buntain, will miss Jean very much. Jean's brother, Bob Chancey and his wife, Gwenda, of St. John's and Jean's sister-in-law Marion Edwards and her husband, Bob, of Annapolis Royal also mourn Jean's passing. Jean was a special aunt to her Anderson and Chancey family nieces and nephews. The family wishes to express its appreciation to the dedicated health care professionals whose skills allowed Jean to live as active a life as possible: Dr. David Legge, Dr. Paul Dupuis, Dr. Morris Mymko and Dr. John Hargadon. And, finally, our thanks to the superb nursing team at St. Joseph's Hospice, led by Dr. Geoff Davis and Dr. Kevin Miller, who gently cared for her needs at the end. In addition, a loving thank you goes to Jean's dear friend, Anne Hargadon. Sincere thanks, as well, to Rev. David Sparks, to all Jean's V.O.N. nurses and to her energetic and caring V.O.N. personal care workers, Leila Kuitunen and Alice de Sousa. Jean was predeceased by her parents, Lloyd and Lillian Chancey, and her brother, James Chancey, all of St. John's, Newfoundland. Cremation has taken place and, according to Jean's wishes, a private gathering will be held to celebrate her life. Interment will occur at a later date in Annapolis Royal. If friends desire, memorial donations may be made to The Thunder Bay Regional Hospital Foundation or to the Salvation Army.

BURDOCK, George Samuel - Passed away peacefully on February 19, 2001 in Dartmouth General Hospital, in his 86th year. Born in Belleoram, Newfoundland, April 2, 1915, the son of William Benjamin and Agnes (Rose) Burdock. He was predeceased by brothers Philip, Rupert and William and sisters Gladys (in childhood), Eleanor "Nellie" (Cyril) Buffet, Jessie (Ralph) Jensen and twin sister Sarah (Cecil) Simms. He is survived by his devoted wife of 56 years, Joan (Colbourne), sons, William & Ronald (Margaret Douma), daughter Janis MacGillivray, two grandchildren, Christian MacGillivray and Heidi (Glenn) Hubley, their father, Keith MacGillivray and by many nieces and nephews. He was an honourary life member of the St. John's Masonic Lodge No. 579. George had a long and varied sea career. At a very young age he began fishing on vessels out of Lunenburg. He had a period of ill health in his twenties and spent two years recuperating. Following this, he joined the U.S. Army Transportation Service in Newfoundland during the Second World War and served as Master of the crash boat PT-105 out of St. John's. As the U.S. presence in Newfoundland declined toward the conclusion of hostilities in Europe, and upon completion of his studies for his Foreign-going Certificates, he entered the Canadian Merchant Service. He spent the last months of the War in Asia aboard a ship in Bombay, awaiting the invasion of Japan. For several years after the War, he served in ships trading to Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and South America. When Newfoundland joined Canada in 1949, George began his service in the Canadian Coast Guard, being very proud to serve Canada to the best of his ability. He became master of the icebreaker Saurel, based in Charlottetown. From the Saurel he was appointed master of the Sir Humphrey Gilbert and delivered this ship from her builders in Quebec to her base in St. John's. During his service in the Gilbert, he and his crew performed several search and rescue missions. The most harrowing of these was the rescue of the surviving crew of the French freighter Douala, for which he received the commendation and gratitude of the government of France. While the cable-laying icebreaker John Cabot was still under construction, George was appointed her first captain and stood by her completion to deliver her to St. John`s from her builders. During his command, the Cabot and her crew were called upon to repair the Greenland portion of the undersea "Hotline" cable linking Washington and Moscow. In recognition of this service he was awarded the Shield of Freedom by the U.S. Air Defence Command. After a period as master of the icebreaker Labrador, George became master of the John A. MacDonald and then of the Louis S St. Laurent, the flagship of the Canadian Coast Guard. During this time, he escorted the US oil tanker "Manhattan" through the Northwest Passage from the eastern Arctic to Alaska. On George's final arctic voyage before retirement, the "Louis" was called to the aid of the icebreaker Sir John Franklin, which had been damaged by severe ice in the western arctic. Against an advancing winter and the prospect of months frozen in the arctic ice, the Louis succeeded in freeing the Franklin. With ice conditions preventing their return by the usual eastern route, the ship came home to Dartmouth via Vancouver and the Panama Canal, completing a circumnavigation of North America, a fitting conclusion to a distinguished career. George's favourite quotation was "A typical Newfoundlander and proud that I am one..." Truly, he was proud of his heritage. Cremation has taken place. No visitation and no flowers by request. Memorial service will be held at 11:00 AM on Friday, February 23, at the Church of the Holy Spirit, Regency Drive, Dartmouth. A reception will follow in the church vestry. Ashes will be interred in the columbarium at the Cathedral Church of All Saints, Halifax on Saturday, February 24, at 11:00 AM. Gifts in Memoriam may be made to the Missions to Seamen.
