Final tribute to navy veteran, CCGS skipper. A World War Two navy veteran, Captain Fred Durnford, who was chief officer and relief captain of the Canadian Coast Guard Ship Simcoe, died suddenly at the age of 52 on Thanksgiving Day. He was in Prescott on his recently acquired cruiser when fatally stricken with a heart seizure. Captain Durnford resided at 102 Manor drive, Brockville, and had an impressive wartime background. Born and raised in Recontre West, Newfoundland, he was the oldest son of John Matt Durnford and the former Olive Skinner, who both survive and live in Port Aux Basques, Nfld.

Badly Burned. Capt. Durnford served with His Majesty's Royal Navy in World War Two and while helping to evacuate a bombed building in Portsmouth, England, we has blown into a gas fire and pinned against burning debris for about 18 hours. He received many extensive burns to the right side of his face, mouth, right arm, and hand. This resulted in Capt. Durnford spending five years in Basingstoke hospital near London, England, undergoing plastic surgery. His face, arm and hand were completely rebuilt by Dr. Gilles, a pioneer in plastic surgery, assisted by seven other surgeons. For the first few years after returning home he was in command of a hospital boat serving the outports of the southwest coast of Newfoundland. Following this he was captain of several ships on the Great Lakes.

Brought Cutter. He joined the Canadian Coast Guard in 1970 and about three years ago once again braved the coastal waters of the Maritimes when he brought the C.C.G.S Rapid, a cutter, from Sydney, N.S., to Prescott. The past couple of years he was relief captain of the C.C.G.S. Simcoe, based at Prescott, from which position he was to take on early retirement on October 13, just four days after his sudden death. Capt. Durnford was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 11, Port Aux Basque, Nfld.

Legion Honors. The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 96, of Brockville, held a memorial service with Rev. Horatio Todd officiating, with full color party honors. The Last Post and Reveille were sounded.

FORWARD, Henry
The death of Henry Forward, light-keeper at Carbonear Island, took place there on Friday morning last following a brief illness. Mr. Forward was 71 years of age and for forty six years had lived with his family on the island, attending to the light-house there. He was active all along but bronchitis developed which caused his death after a week's illness. The deceased was well known and highly esteemed, his open and bright manner winning many friends who will deeply regret his passing. He leaves to mourn his passing his widow [formerly Miss Dean of Carbonear], three sons William and Mark of Bristol's Hope and Harry at Sydney, and four daughters Mrs. Gilbert, of Flatrock, Bay-de-Verde, Mrs John T Ash of this town and Mrs Frank Pike and Miss Fannie at home and sister Mrs William Godden of St John's. The funeral was held o n Sunday afternoon from the residence of his nephew, Mr John Forward, Crockers Cove and was largely attended by friends from neighboring places. Interment was made at the C of E Cemetery at Carbonear; the Rev. E E. Rusted was conducting the service. To the sorrowing family The Standard extends its sympathy.

On Friday morning, March 23, the Angel of Death visited the Light House on Carbonear Island, and took away the soul of the keeper, Mr. Henry Forward. Mr. Forward was 71 years and for the past 44 years has lived with his family on the Island, always keeping his light shining brightly to guide the wandering seaman home to port. A few weeks ago Mr. Forward was in to Carbonear and seemingly in the best of health, but a slight cold set in, which quickly developed into pneumonia, and before many days had passed the soul of Mr. Forward departed from this world to the heavenly home above.

The funeral took place from the Public Wharf, Crocker's Cove, on Sunday evening, and long before the appointed hour crowds could be seen wending their way from all the neighboring settlements to pay their last respects to one who was known and respected by many. The late Mr. Forward leaves to mourn their sad loss a large number of relatives and friends, to all of whom our heartfelt sympathy is extended.

IN MEMORIAM

In memory of my dear father, Mr. Henry Forward, who died on Friday morning last, the 23rd.

"One less at home!
The charmed circle broken - a dear face,
Missed day by day from its usual place
But cleansed, saved, and perfected by grace,
"One more in heaven!"

"One less on earth!
Its pain, its sorrow and its toil to share
One less the pilgrim's daily cross to bear
One more the crown of the blessed to wear
At home in heaven!"
-inserted by his daughter Mrs John T Ash.

In loving memory of the late Mr. Henry Forward, who died on Friday last, the 23rd.

A happy home we once enjoyed,
How sweet the memory still;
But death has left a loneliness
This world can never fill

We miss you sorely father dear,
Now that we are all alone,
Our aching hearts are longing,
If you could only come home.
-inserted by his wife and children.

HUDSON, Elizabeth
Freshwater Clemens Newell daughter - (b ca 1749-February, 1797)
Provided by John Philip Newell:
From Rev. William Thoresby narrative:
(ref. to Mrs Pike, Mrs Reed, Mr. Burt, Jonathan Moor, Mr Davis, Mr Taylor, Rev Stratten, Mr. Goss, Mr Kemp, Mr Israel, Sean King, Mrs Lilly, George Vey, more & more)

http://www.mun.ca/rels/meth/thoresby.html
Brother Hudson has sent me a sketch of the experience of his deceased wife, which I am (if spared) to read tomorrow after sermon. Feb. 5th. I walked from Blackhead to Adam's Cove, to attend the funeral of Elizabeth Hudson; she died of a fever which she caught when on a visit at her relations. I don't remember that ever I saw a more affecting scene than on this day; the people were afraid of coming near the corps [corpse]. When the remains of the deceased was brought to the door, the people stood at so great a distance, that my mind was very much pained, to think that she who had gone at all hours by night and day to attend the sick, and now scarsely [scarcely] any would come near her, who had been so kind to many of them when living! After we had sung a hymn at the door, I said to the women, if you are afraid and unwilling to bear the pall, I will; by speaking thus several came near, and at the church there was a great concourse of people. I read prayers and then preached; the people were much affected: I believe all were in tears. After preaching in the evening, I gave tickets to the society, and joined four new members: Lord help them to endure to the end. I have enjoyed a portion of comfort and peace in the past day - Lord make me thankful. I shall here insert a sketch of the life and death of Elizabeth Hudson, who died on the second of February, 1797: - E.H. was the daughter of Mr. Clemens Newell, a respectable planter of Fresh-Water-Cove: Here she was born; and twenty-six years ago, she was convinced of sin; from that time she sought the Lord in good earnest, and before long, the Lord gave her a sence [sense] of his favour, and shed abroad his love in her heart. She was now more determined than ever to wage war against the world, the flesh, and the devil; and through God's grace, she has been a faithful servant of Christ to the end. Twenty-five years ago, she was married to John Hudson, of Adam's Cove; they received each other with prayer, and in the fear of God; both of them were determined to serve God in spirit and in truth. The deceased has been diligent in all the means of grace, both public and private, going through all kinds of weather, frost and snow, winter and summer, to worship her God; and he did not let his faithful handmaid go a warfare at her own charge but frequently caused her to sit under the droppings of the sanctuary, and gave her that fruit which was sweet to her taste. She manifested an ardent desire after the happiness of all around her, often inviting her neighbours to come to Christ; she prayed with and for the afflicted and unconverted. Thus she went on till the Lord afflicted her body, and called her soul to eternal repose. She was confined to her room fourteen days, during that time, she manifested a Christian spirit, in bearing her affliction with patience and resignation to the divine will. The last words she repeated were,

God of love that hear'st the prayer,
Kindly for thy people care;
Who on thee alone depend:
Love us, save us to the end!
And for ever, and for ever,
And for evermore, Amen.

I preached her funeral sermon to a crouded [crowded] church, the scene was affecting, all present were in tears.

LABA, FRANCES
Frances (Fran) Mary (Harris) Laba
, Sun Lakes, Arizona resident and wife of the late Gerald Gabriel Laba, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, May 19, 2016 in Chandler, Arizona. She was 90 years old. Born to Elsie (Garland) and Samuel Harris on March 22, 1926, in St. John's, Newfoundland (Canada), Frances lived life to the fullest. As a young woman, she worked as a legal secretary, and entertained military troops as a USO dancer during World War II. It was during this time when she met her loving husband and moved to Long Island, New York to be married on October 17, 1948. Fran was a loving and devoted wife and mother, who tremendously dedicated herself to her four children. Among various volunteer roles, Frances served as both Girl Scout troop and Boy Scout den leaders. As her children left for college, she and her husband renovated several lakeside properties, allowing them to retire early to Dover, New Hampshire. After her husband's death in 1992, she relocated to Sun Lakes, Arizona to be closer to family and enjoy the warm desert climate.

MAY, William
This was transcribed from the twenty-third leaf of forty-seven of the 1905 St. Clement's Church of England records housed in the Bishops University Archives, Lennoxville, Quebec. This area then known as the Canadian Labrador is now known as the Quebec Lower North Shore.

The record reads, May Buried: William May of Point Rose, Fortune Bay, Newfoundland, fisherman of the schooner "Ripple" aged thirty years, died on the twentieth day of July, nineteen hundred and five and was buried on the twenty-first of the same month of the same year. By Me, J. G. Ward M.A., Priest, Witnesses: Thomas Morel and Edwin Grant

Although it does not specify where the burial took place it was sure to have been the Blanc Sablon area, probably Blanc Sablon where there is an old cemetery by the shore. J. G. Ward was travelling in that area at the time, the St. Clement's Mission headquarters were at Mutton Bay. The other reason I know it was Blanc Sablon is that the witnesses were Thomas Morel who worked for a Jersey Co. in Blanc Sablon and Edwin Grant who worked for Job Brothers in Blanc Sablon.

Neta Pearl Weaver, 69
Posted: Friday, Feb 19th, 2010

SAGUACHE - Saguache, Colo. resident Neta Pearl Weaver, 69, was born July 4, 1940 in Saint Anthony, Newfoundland, Canada to Thomas and Elizabeth Patey, and died Feb. 18, 2010 at a Colorado Springs hospital from complications related to diabetes. Neta met Paul Everett "Butch" Weaver when he was stationed in Newfoundland as a member of the United States Air Force and they married May 13, 1967 in Newfoundland.

Neta followed Paul to the United States when he was transferred to a base in Austin, Texas and later to a base in Clovis, N.M. When Paul left the military, they moved to South Fork where he took a job as manager at Elk Creek Ranch and she worked with her husband, cleaning cabins, seeing to the needs of the members, and preparing a big meal for all the members at the ranch each August prior to their annual meeting. Neta and Paul remained at Elk Creek Ranch for 23 years, moving to Cortez and later to Orvada, Nev. They moved to Saguache in 2006. Pearl's diabetes continued to take its toll on her health and in 2005 she started kidney dialysis treatments.

While Neta was still in good health, she enjoyed reading, doing embroidery, cooking, baking, entertaining friends, rearranging the furniture in her house at least once a week and redecorating the rooms of her home with the numerous afghans and treasures she found at yard sales and craft shows.

Neta is survived by her husband Paul; daughters Brenda Weaver of Grand Junction, Elizabeth "Betty" Weaver of Aurora and Andrea (Dave) Hanagarne, Farmington, N.M.; sister Alma Hilyer, brother Everton Patey and niece Gayle Patey, all of Newfoundland; grandchildren Kayla and Anthony Espinoza, Christopher Pacheco and Paul David and Brandon Hanagarne.

YOUNG, Doctor S.P.
Bridgewater Bulletin June, 1934.
Dr. Sebastian Paul Young
, one of the best known medical men in Lunenburg County and distinguished for his brilliant scholastic career at Dalhousie University, passed away shortly after midnight Sunday night at his residence at New Germany. Death was due to a heart affliction. The late Dr.Young was born at Petrie's Crossing, Newfoundland, thirty-seven years ago and after a career in the public schools of his native home came to Dalhousie University where his brilliant scholarship and outstanding talents won him the Rhodes Scholarship in 1920. Returning to Dalhousie in 1925 he completed his medical studies and following his graduation in 1926 took up practice in New Germnay where he has since resided. Known throughout the entire countryside, his practice was an extensive one and he befriended many in the course of his ministrations. His sudden death is a distinct loss to the community in which he lived. For several years he was coroner in New Germany and presided over inquests and hearings which were of outstanding interest. Earlier in life he had suffered from rheumantic fever with a resultant heart condition. Sunday he was apparently in good health and was about in his car paying calls to his patients. Late Sunday night he was saized with the fatal attack and Dr. D.A. Campbell and Dr. C.A. Donkin of Bridgewater and Dr. Angus MacDonald of New Germany were called but shortly after midnight Dr. Young passed away.

Surviving are his wife, Mrs. Betty Young, and their daughter, Joan, residing at Boyles, Newfoundland; and two brothers, James Young of Young's Electrical Company, Augusta, Georgia; and William, manager of the Cross Trading and Steamship Company of Curling, Newfoundland. The body was forwarded to Newfoundland for interment.
