Viola Peddle
Born: September 16th, 1934
Passed on: March 1st, 2014

Viola was born in Gambo NL to Charles and Delilah Sturge. She was raised with four siblings - Pearl, Joan, Cecil, and Doreen. After high school, Viola attended the NL Summer School and was employed as a school teacher in Seal Cove, Fortune Bay, and then in Little Heart's Ease, Trinity Bay. It was in Little Heart's Ease that she met and married Gideon Peddle. They began their family there and then moved to Clarenville in 1960 where they lived and worked and raised their five children. Viola worked in Clarenville for many years as a Cook and when she wasn't busy with work, she was busy looking after the affairs of her family and being involved with the ministry of her church. Viola will always be known as a gentle, loving, caring lady who gave herself to others with sincere and outstanding service. Her first love was God and she lived out her faith consistently in front of her family, her friends, and her community. Viola was never idol. She loved to work with her hands, spend time reading and studying the Bible, and she loved to travel to be with her family and explore the world around her. Viola was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother who always put the needs of her family above her own. She is their hero and will be sadly missed by her sons Gordon (Yvonne), Don, Dennis (Sue), Wanda (Morris), and Shawn (Kerry) as well as by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. On January 04 Viola was diagnosed with cancer and that illness took her earthly life on March 01. However, the life of Viola Peddle is not lost. The legacy of love and the integrity of her life lives on in the lives of her family and all who knew her. Her influence will never die. A service of celebration for Viola's life on Monday, March 03, at 11:00 a.m. at The Salvation Army Church will be a time to honor her.

of Riverview, NB passed away peacefully after a lenghtly illness on Wednesday, March 19, 2014 at 89 years of age in Moncton City Hospital with his loving wife and family at his side. Eli is survived and will be hugely missed by his wife of 41 years, Flora (Frost-Stanley), his son Garry, his daughter Janice (Stanley) Gladney, son-in-law Robert and his three grandchildren; "the boys" - Evan, Brent and Ian; brothers - Eugene (Priscella), Gordon (Alma), Eric (Bernice); sisters-in-law Lillian, Lil, Roberta, Mary (Rex), brother-in-law Walt (Rowena) and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, his first wife Bessie (Green); brothers Bill (Hilda), Jim, Kenneth, Wilfred and Hedley; sisters Mary (Sandy), Hazel (Dave), Susie (Alf), Juanita (Ben). Eli was born on January 6, 1925 in Hillview, NL to Richard and Elizabeth (Brinston) Loder. Eli's working years started when he left home at the young age of 14 to go to Labrador as cook's helper on Eli Drodge's fishing boat. Following employment with Cousin's Drycleaners, The White Clothing Company and at the Naval Base in Argentia, Eli returned to sea in 1947 when he began working with the NL Railway on the "Issac John Smith". For three years he sailed to the Caribbean carrying a cargo of salt fish and returning with a cargo of molasses and rum. His next seafaring job was on the CN coastal boats delivering cargo, passengers and mail to communities along the coast of NL. Before his retirement in 1982, Eli completed his long marine career working on various ships such as the "Ambrose Shea" and "Marine Atlantica" that provided ferry service from North Sydney, NS to Argentia or Port-Aux-Basques, NL. Eli and Flo resided in Clarenville, NL for 32 years of their married life where he was actively involved in the church, league bowling and darts. He gardened; camped, fished, berry picked and loved a good game of cards "120's". Eli and Flo moved to Riverview, NB in 2004 to be closer to Garry, Janice and Robert and his grandchildren. He continued bowling until sidelined by his second hip replacement and enjoyed playing cards with good friends, Max and Bessie. He also enjoyed sailing with Janice and Robert on their sailboat the "Panacea" in Shediac Bay. Eli was a kind, gentle and considerate soul; ever thankful, ever thoughtful - never one to complain. His infectious "little" smile will be greatly missed by all who knew him. We would like to thank his caregivers from Bayshore especially Shirley, Mary and Robin who enabled him to live at home for the past year. We would also like to thank Drs. Cameron and Forbes, all his specialists and nurses of 4600 involved in his care. Cremation has taken place.
