BECK, Hazen Donald
Passed on: April 30th, 2018

Age 69, of Pine Grove, passed away peacefully with his family by his side on April 30th, 2018 in the South Shore Regional Hospital, Bridgewater. Born on February 25th, 1949, Hazen was the oldest son of the late Donald and Beatrice (Zwicker) Beck. He grew up in Newcombville and shared many childhood adventures and (possibly a few) misdeeds with his brothers, Paul and Gerald, and his close friends. He attended Saint Mary's University for three years before joining the RCMP and graduating with his BA from the Memorial University of Newfoundland in 1973. While serving in the RCMP, Hazen studied part-time and then received his CGA designation in 1989. His 29-year service with the RCMP brought Hazen and his family to St. John's, Bishop's Falls, Toronto, Ottawa and Halifax, but he always dreamed of returning to his beloved Lunenburg County. After retiring from the RCMP, that dream came true, and Hazen and his wife Sue moved to Pine Grove where Hazen failed at retiring and started his own accounting firm instead.
Hazen was a quiet and gentle man who loved his family, his dogs, being outside in the woods, country music, his plaid shirts and time at the camp. Hazen is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Suzanne (Curran) Beck, Pine Grove; daughters Tracy (Darren) Adamson, Fall River, Charmaine (Richard) Dymond, Halifax; grandchildren Tyler, Julie, Eric, Alex, and Sammy; brothers Paul (Crystal Madill) Beck, Auburndale, Gerald (Madonna Scott) Beck, Bridgewater. Funeral arrangements are under the care and direction of C.F. Sweeny's Funeral Home, Bridgewater with a visitation from 2-4 p.m. on Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018. A funeral service will be held on Thursday, May 3rd, 2018 at 2 p.m. in the All Saints Lutheran Church, Newcombville, Pastor Svante Olson officiating. A private burial will be held at the Newcombville Cemetery following the service. Family flowers only. Donations in Hazen's memory may be made to ElderDog Canada (www.elderdog.ca, 1-855-336-4226) or to the South Shore Regional Hospital, Bridgewater. His family would like to thank the local ElderDog volunteers for their dedication to taking care of Charlie while Hazen was not able to, and to thank the staff at the hospital for their support and compassion.

BLACKMORE, David Walter
Passed on: April 30th, 2018

Passed away peacefully at St. Clare's Mercy Hospital on Monday, April 30, 2018, David Walter Blackmore in his 82nd year. At his bedside was his dear companion and partner, Barbara (nee Andrews) Wood, whose life he shared for the last 16 years. David had been in ill health for the last year or so, and in spite of his determination to regain wellness and strength, his heart was not up to the task. David was the firstborn child of Walter Blackmore and Lucy (Griffin) Blackmore of Grand Falls-Windsor, where he was born in 1936. He attended Notre Dame Academy and graduated from Ryerson University in 1959, whereupon he joined the family business, Blackmore Printing Co. Ltd. He retired from Flexo-Pak in Grand Falls-Windsor, a company he had partnered with his brother Anthony following the sale of the original family business. Dave eventually moved to St. John's where he lived until his death. Dave was regarded by his family and friends as a very kind, generous man, knowledgeable about many things, collector of family trivia, the cousin who kept up with everyone as they moved out of the family seat of Grand Falls-Windsor and settled in places near and far, and raised their families, the uncle who always acknowledged every milestone and accomplishment of his much-loved nephews and nieces. His memories of growing up in central Newfoundland provided him with stories, anecdotes and observations which became part of the lore he shared with his friends and family. One of Dave's gifts was his ability to be a good listener, and as such he was welcomed into the lives of many diverse people. A man of a deep faith born in childhood and matured in later life, David and Barbara lived their Catholic faith and worshipped at St. Teresa's Parish, Mundy Pond, where they felt welcomed and at home. As a resident of Cambridge Estates, and later of the Miller Centre, Dave was a friend and colleague who endeavored to make life a little brighter.
Sharing their grief with Barbara today are Dave's siblings Anthony (Hap), wife Rosalie and their children John (Kellie), Christopher (Shelley), Andrew (Karen) and Paul (Angeline) and their children, Dave's grand-nephews and grand-nieces: Amanda, Jason, Melissa, Nathan, Alexandra and Anthony; Judy Brockie, husband Gerry and their son, Ian (Pam Coristine); sister-in-law Sheila Kelly-Blackmore (widow of Martin, d. 2008); Eleanor Jones and her children Megan (Clifton Drew) and John (children Olive and Martin Jones); Brendan and his daughters Lucy and Sarah Blackmore, and their mother Eileen Dunphy. In addition there are the many cousins of the Blackmore, Griffin and Harvey families of Grand Falls-Windsor, as well as the Thomey cousins in the US. Mourning their loss as well, are Barbara's children: Mark and his sons Levi and Isaac Hansen; John (Lisa) and sons Michael (Melanie) and Corey (Vanessa) Wood; Paul (Leona); Gerald (Valerie) daughter Janel and son Justin Wood; Robert (Jacqueline) and their children Riley, Julia and Sarah Wood. As a final act of generosity, David has gifted his body to MUN Medical Science, so there will not be a visitation or funeral at this time. However, the family plans to have a Celebration and Thanksgiving service at St. Teresa's Parish, Mundy Pond on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 at 9:30 am. In David's memory, donations may be made to St. Teresa's Parish 120 Mundy Pond Rd., St. John's, NL A1E 1V1 or a charity of one's choice.
Rest in peace kind and gentle soul, David.

DECKER, Ruby
Born: January 20th, 1927
Passed on: April 8th, 2018

It is with full hearts that we announce the passing of our dear mother, Ruby M Decker. Mom completed her journey on earth on April 8, 2018 at the Health Science Centre surrounded by her most coveted gifts in life, her family. Ruby started her journey on January 20, 1927 in Englee, NL and faced many challenges at an early age. She persevered, attended Memorial University and received her teaching certificate. After a short teaching position in St. George's, NL, she accepted a position in Ship Cove, NL, a small community on the Great Northern Peninsula. It was here that she met and married her soulmate, Raymond Decker on June 30, 1949. They shared a long, beautiful life together with many stories to tell until his passing on March 13, 2003. After the birth of her seventh child, Ruby lost her eyesight for several months. Once her sight returned she decided to teach again and accepted a position in Raleigh. A couple years later she accepted another position in St. Anthony, where she stayed until her retirement in 1993. Throughout her teaching career she obtained two university degrees through long-distance education, before the advent of the internet, while continuing to raise seven children.

FREW, Sylvia Ada Eloise (nee Brushett)
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and loyal friend, in her 84th year. Sylvia passed peacefully away at home on 23 April 2018 in the loving presence of her family. She leaves behind her husband Allan; children: Sonja, David (Rose), Stephen (Heather), Stephanie Bilodeau (Marc), and Peter (Jackie); 15 grandchildren; 5 great-grandchildren; and many extended family and dear friends that she loved like family. She was predeceased by her parents Eric and Virtue (Power); her brother Bill; and her daughter Susan Frew-Craig. Cremation has already taken place. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to your local SPCA. Special thanks to Dr. George Burden, the staff from the VON Colchester and Sylvia's other caregivers, and the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch #48 Elmsdale.
Sylvia grew up in Clarenville and had wonderful memories of her life there - this cultivated her love of Newfoundland. She was a pioneer in telecommunications having been one of the first switchboard operators on the island. She was an avid card player, blueberry picker extraordinaire, and loved to read while sitting outside with a coffee. She got great pleasure pulling the family together for Sunday dinner and homemade bread. She truly enjoyed Christmas Eves - and hanging out with her friends and those of her children. In all of her relationships, Sylvia valued an individual's character above anything else. She was fiercely independent - this was a trait that carried her through tough times and served as an example to those of us closest to her. Yet, of all her characteristics, the one that most set her apart and endeared her to others was her authenticity - she was comfortable in her own skin - and this made it easy and fun to be around her. We will miss her friendship, selflessness, and strength - she was a true matriarch. Sylvia passed from this world fully knowing how much she was loved and admired by her family and those closest to her - we should all be so lucky.
FREW, Sylvia (Brushett)

The family home was expropriated during WWII to make way for an American Base. Her family was moved to Freshwater, Placentia Bay where she went to school and dreamed of becoming a nurse. She entered the RN program at St. Clare's Mercy Hospital and graduated in 1958. Her classmates remained lifelong friends, and brought her such joy at the end of her life. After graduation, Mary worked at the Placentia Cottage Hospital for a year. The following year she attended Dalhousie University to study Public Health and returned to St. John's to work as a Public Health Nurse. As a Public Health Nurse she travelled across the province, she worked in Bonne Bay, St. Lawrence, New Perlican, Burin, Whitbourne, just to name a few places. She moved to St. John's when she married and worked at the Janeway ICU, for many years at the Emergency Department of the former General Hospital, managed a Community Care Program for the Waterford Hospital, and finished her career at the Health Sciences Centre. Nursing was a calling, to Mary, not a job. Mary often said, "When you are a nurse you will know that every day you will touch a life, or a life will touch yours." Mary and Steve lived their lives dedicated to the service of others. Their door was always open to everyone at all times which produced an exciting life. Through it all, they always danced together. Mary loved to sew, bake, quilt, and tend to her vegetable garden. Every fall was spent making jam and pickles for friends and family. Mary lived a life of purpose, great faith, always caring, never complaining, always finding a reason to laugh, and was grateful for all the joys in her life. Funeral Mass will take place on May 19th at 10 AM at the Basilica of St. John the Baptist, with interment to follow at Holy Sepulchre, with a reception at the Members Lounge at Clovelly Golf Course from Noon to 5PM also on the 19th.

WALSH, Susan
Passed on: April 26th, 2018

Our beautiful mom, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend Susan Walsh slipped peacefully away into the arms of her beloved Freddie on April 26, 2018 at the age of 93. Left to celebrate her long amazing life and mourn her profound loss: daughter Linda Doody (Tom), sons Fred Walsh (Mary) and Jim Walsh (Betty) as well as grandchildren Lesley Doody (Michael), John Walsh, Susan Kennedy (Billy), Christopher Walsh (Jany), Cyndi McLean (Joe), Seanessey Walsh (Stephanie), and great-grandchildren Logan, Tanner, Ayden, Calla, and Benjamin. Also, sadly missed by brother Walter Brushett (Madeleine), sisters Nancy Pike (Frank), Margaret Hillier, sister-in-law Carrie Walsh, and a large circle of other relatives and friends. Susan is predeceased by husband Fred (1999) and granddaughter Alison (Aly) Walsh (2013) as well as members of the Young, Walsh, and Brushett families.
Our mom was a woman of fun and faith. She was resilient and strong with an ever-present sense of humour that sometimes bordered on the naughty side. She was adventurous and would try anything - like driving a motor home to Maine when she was well into her 70s and delighting in going down water slides and driving go-carts during her trip. She loved traveling. She had a kaleidoscope of talents and interests. Throughout her life, she loved being active and involved: singing, dancing, rollerskating, camping, trouting, gardening, and doing carpentry. She was quite an athlete and excelled at darts and bowling with over 100 trophies to her credit. She was also a member of the first female championship team of the Placentia Intertown Regatta in 1963 and rowed in the St. John's Regatta at Quidi Vidi as well. She was a champion. Of course, she also enjoyed the quieter pursuits such as reading, doing ceramics, and playing cards. The latter only if she won. Mom was a master of the domestic arts as she would call them. She was an extraordinary cook who made legendary jiggs dinner, apple pies, and chocolate chip cookies. She knitted, crocheted, sewed, and produced exquisitely detailed embroideries. She was always there to celebrate special occasions with her family and friends. Although mom worked for a few years at the Naval Station in Argentia in the 1940s, she was a homemaker most of her life. Nevertheless, she believed fiercely in the value of education and being informed about current events. She was a life-long learner and encouraged this trait in her children. She was so proud when her family completed their education, be it at the end of kindergarten, technical school, or university. She would often stop complete strangers in a store line-up and say, "Did you know my daughter is a teacher!" or "My granddaughter is a geophysicist!" not really knowing what that meant, but realizing how important such an achievement was. Our mother was a woman of faith, not in the traditional sense, but in the ecumenical sense. She embraced all faiths. She was very open and accepting. She prayed and read the Bible each day until her 91st year, sang her favorite hymns, and drew great strength from knowing that there was a higher power. Mom's life spanned the Depression, World War II, the advent of technology, and Trump World, an incredible nine decades. Through it all, she maintained her ever present zest for life, her sense of fun, and her absolute devotion to her family. We were all so blessed by her journey through our lives.
The family wishes to extend a special note of thanks to the staff of Karwood Retirement Home, the third floor staff of Chancellor Park, Doctors Hart, Kieley, Crocker, and O'Shea for their kindness and care during mom's illness. Our sincere appreciation to our aunt Zita MacCallum for her blessing and prayers for mom which helped our mother complete her final journey and be at peace. Visitation will take place at Carnell's Funeral Home at 329 Freshwater Road on Saturday, April 28 from 2:00 to 4:00 and 7:00 to 9:00, and on Sunday April 29 from 2:00 to 9:00. Funeral service will be held at Carnell's Memorial Chapel on Monday, April 30 at 2:00 with burial at the Anglican Cemetery, Kenmount Road, immediately following the service. A reception for guests will be held at Carnell's following the interment. Flowers are gratefully accepted or donations may be made to the Spirit Horse Program (www.spirit horsenl.com), or a charity of one's choice.

Mom
Your special smile and twinkling eyes,
Your laughter and your touch -
These are the things that we recall,
The things we miss so much.
The joy you brought to all of us,
Sweet memories to treasure -
The love you gave so freely,
Made us rich beyond all measure.
We think of you today,
And wish with broken hearts,
That you were still here with us,
That we didn't have to part.
Your memory we hold close,
We'll cherish it together,
We love you now and always will,
We'll treasure it forever.
-L. Doody
Always in our Hearts

WILLIAMSON, Florence O. (nee Oke)
Passed on: April 3rd, 2018
Age 91 of Old Saybrook, passed away Saturday, March 3, 2018, while in the hospice unit at Middlesex Hospital in Middletown, CT. "Just call me Flo" was her popular reply. She was born in St. John's, Newfoundland before it became Canada's 10th province. It was Great Britain's oldest Colony. Flo was the older daughter of Gordon Jeans Oke and Siddie Oke, nee Hampton. She was married three times, the first two ending in divorces, leaving her to find the love of her life, Fred Williamson, whom she married May 31, 1975. Predeceasing her were her parents, her sister Margaret West, her first two husbands and two daughters, Robin and Jacqueline. She is survived by her husband Fred, her son Gary Butler, her son Jay Williamson and his wife Annie, her daughter Heather Ralston and her husband Greg, her stepson Scott and his son David and daughter Sharon, her stepson Jeff Williamson, her grandson Jesse Babb and his wife Christina and two great-grandsons, Jordan and David Babb. The story too amazing for Hollywood is that Fred, when his first wife left him, visited his sister-in-law in Oklahoma, and they put two families together. Flo's family from St. John's were noted. Her father was a leading funeral director. Her uncle, Harris Oke was the British foreign secretary in West Africa, now Gambia, and arranged the meeting between Gen. Mark Clark and Gen. DeGaulle that led to the African landing in WWII. Her uncle, William Hampton, founded the Newfoundland College of Fisheries. Flo attended Bishop Spencer College from Kindergarten through business school. At that time, the schools were largely parochial and her girls' school was a Church of England school. Upon graduation, she immediately went to work for Air Canada. Flo became a US Air Force wife and was stationed in Florida, Germany, France and Oklahoma and unaccompanied while her husband was in Iceland and the Philippines. Later in life, she was the business manager for the Oklahoma City Clinic, while, as a single mother, raising four children. After she and Fred were married in 1975, the younger two were adopted by Fred, and they moved to Westport, CT. In her youth, she was known for going out the school window with ice skates in hand to make the first band on the rink. Later the couple were active with the Cotillion Club in Westport, which had eight formal dances a year, and they were the club presidents for two years. She was also an active member of the ladies Encore organization in Guilford and president of it for two years. A vivacious lady, she was noted for being very attractive, hair styled and manicured to perfection. Very active in Greens Farms Congregations Church, the ladies were always commenting on her hats, dresses, suits, or purses. Her smile was infectious, and she had a way of relating to family or friends, inquiring about their day and their families, making them know she cared. It was her way of showing her love for them. When her physical being started to wear down, her fight to live was acknowledged by her doctors. She will be sorely missed.

"A wife, a mother, a grandma too,
This is the legacy we have from you,
You taught us love and how to fight,
you gave us strength, you gave us might.
A stronger person would be hard to find,
And in your heart, you were always kind,
You fought for us all, in one way or another,
Not just as a wife, not just as a mother.
For all of us you gave your best,
Now the time has come for you to rest,
So go in peace, you've earned your sleep,
Your love in our hearts, we'll eternally keep."
