That the hills were hard to climb,
So He closed her weary eyelids,
And whispered
"Peace Be Thine"
Away in the beautiful hills of God,
By the valley of rest so fair,
Some time, some day,
we know not when,
We will meet our love one there.

He was instrumental in founding both the Atlantic Canada Studies program in 1975 and the Chair of Irish Studies 10 years later. An unusually gifted oral reader and performer of literary texts, Dr. Byrne was noted for his radio broadcast work as well as his magnetic classroom personality. He could animate Chaucer, Shakespeare, James Joyce, and the centuries of literature and music in between. Decades of students remain in his debt, especially those who took his classes in Shakespeare, Irish Literature and Newfoundland Studies, areas where he also focused his research. He was an outstanding scholar of Newfoundland and its connections with Ireland, and he leaves a rich legacy in this field. Besides numerous publications, he contributed much to the Atlantic Canada Institute and other regional organizations. An energetic convener of conferences and a leader in national learned societies, including the Canadian Association of Irish Studies, he also served as regional representative on the Social Studies and Humanities Research Council. As Coordinator of Irish Studies at Saint Mary's, he worked unstintingly in a remarkably successful campaign to raise funds for the Chair. His achievements in the study and maintenance of Irish traditions in Canada were honoured in 1993 when he was invested as a Member of the Order of Canada. Cyril had an unflagging enthusiasm and zest for life. His passion for travel brought him abroad, often with his children; he kept his family ties with Newfoundland and conducted lifelong field studies in his native province. At home in Halifax, he loved being surrounded by family and friends, engaging in small talk as well as debates on world affairs. He loved music, the theatre, visiting the market on Saturday, and cooking for a full house. Cyril was at ease with the prominent, but he had the gift of the common touch. He was a generous friend, a stimulating teacher, a loyal colleague, and a devoted and loving parent. He will be missed by all for his warmth and his humour. We shall not see his like again. Visitation hours will be held today from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. in Cruikshank's Halifax Funeral Home, 2032 Robie St., Halifax. Funeral Mass in St. Mary's Basilica on Saturday, August 19 at 10 a.m. Reception will be held in Saint Mary's University Theatre. Burial at a later date. Donations to the D'Arcy McGee Chair of Irish Studies, Saint Mary's University, Halifax, NS, B3H 3C3, would honour Cyril's memory in a way that will continue his legacy. E-mail condolences may be sent to cruikshankhalifaxfh@alderwoods.com

MCKEE, G. Ross Jr. - Ross McKee, educator, columnist, philanthropist, died on Saturday, August 19, 2006, at his beloved Avondale Newfoundland summer home. He was 93 years of age.
Born on August 10, 1913, in New York City, Ross moved to Key West in 1974 and became an active member of the community. He was a founder and life member of the Florida Keys Land and Sea Trust, whose environmental objects include preserving the salt ponds and the hardwood hammocks of the Keys. He served on the board of the Key West Art and Historical Society as public relations chair. He established the Christine McKee - Margo Golan Park behind the East Martello Museum. In 2001, Ross was the recipient of the Florence Recher Award for community service.
Writing under the pen name of D.J. Swift, Ross wrote a national affairs column in the Key West Citizen for thirteen years beginning in 1980. He was also a contributing columnist to Solares Hill and the Island News. Ross's keen intellectual interests were reflected in a formidable knowledge of science, business, sports, politics - in short - virtually everything. His witty and informative columns enlightened and entertained his readers. Ross's pride in being a Democrat was in keeping with his genuinely democratic heart and pursuit of social justice.
Ross attended Collegiate and Lawrenceville Schools and graduated from Princeton University in 1935. He was a devout attendee of Princeton reunions into his nineties. He was honored to attend his 71st reunion in 2006 as the President of the Class of '35. Ross maintained a life-long commitment to education. He taught economics in high school in New Canaan, CT for ten years. Ross was a popular volunteer teacher at the Key West High School teaching classes in poetry, history, and international relations, to name a few. After funding many prior scholarships, in 2000, Ross created an annual scholarship in his name for Key West High School students entering university.
Ross started working as a copy boy at the New York Daily News and concluded his business career as public affairs director of the Columbia Gas System. In World War II, he served in Burma with the Second Air Commando Group and subsequently with the Air Intelligence Reserve, attaining the rank of Lt. Colonel. He served on the staff of the Military Order of the World Wars and on its National Education Committee.
Ross enjoyed his memberships in the Overseas Press Club, the Retired Officers Association, the Old Island Restoration Foundation, the TWFAC Founders Society, and the American Museum of Natural History. He had a special fondness for his membership in the Arcturus Club of Key West.
Only in later years did Ross permit his name to be associated with the many associations whom he had supported "anonymously." He contributed to many organizations, including Princeton University, the Collegiate and Lawrenceville Schools, the Florida Keys Community Foundation, the Red Barn Theatre, the Waterfront Playhouse, and in particular, the Florida Keys Land and Sea Trust. Ross's philanthropy traveled with him. In Newfoundland, Ross's financial assistance, given in his mother's name, enabled Planned Parenthood to obtain independent premises. He was a contributor to the Roncalli High School in Avondale.
Despite his slight frame, Ross was proud to be a member of the Princeton Wrestling Team. He was a respectable tennis player and an accomplished fisherman. He rooted for the Key West baseball and basketball teams. Ross and his "lovely wife" of thirty years, Anne, shared a life of travel, attended theatre and music productions, and thoroughly enjoyed Key West life. If it was happening in Key West, Ross and Anne were there. Ross gave to his country, to his community, and to his family and friends. We will cherish his unassuming nature and unfailing good humor. We will miss his stories and always be inspired by his largesse.
Ross McKee is survived by his wife, Anne (nee Hennessey of Avondale); daughters, Joan McKee Hill and Barbara McKee-Phoutz; sons Drew and Hayward; stepdaughter, The Hon. Marie Corbett; stepsons, John Corbett and Brian Corbett; nine grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.
Ross's family appreciate the attentive and responsive health care given to Ross by Drs. Eli Gerth and Gil Shapiro in Key West and by Drs. H. Russell Lake and Paul Walsh in Avondale. Many good friends provided gentle and loving home care and assistance in Avondale. We give special thanks to Lorraine McDonald, Beth Dalton, and Annette Butland.
Memorial services in Key West at St. Paul's Episcopal Church and in Avondale will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Florida Keys Land and Sea Trust.

Albert M. - Priest of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Halifax, Nova Scotia, formerly Rector of St. Mary's Cathedral Basilica, passed away at home in Halifax on Sunday August 6, 2006. Born in Bay Bulls, Newfoundland, May 3, 1922, he was the son of Aiden O'Driscoll and Lucy (Williams) O'Driscoll. After his mother's death when he was twenty-two months old, he went to live with Ambrose and Hannah Mulcahy, becoming the eighth child of that family. Monsignor was educated in Bay Bulls, in the Parish schools of Sts. Peter and Paul by the Sisters of Mercy, whom he held in the highest regard. He continued his studies at St. Bonaventure's College, and then at St. Mary's University and Holy Heart Seminary in Halifax. In later years, he pursued post-graduate work at the Dominican House of Studies in Chicago, at Catholic University of America and at Loyola University, Chicago, completing a Masters degree in Religious Education.

He welcomed Pope John Paul II to the cathedral in 1984. He initiated the redecoration of the church and the restoration of the granite steeple. He served as Director of Religious Education for the Archdiocese, and in 1964 established Bishop Burke House, a house of studies for young men considering priesthood. During his sixty years of priesthood, Monsignor O'Driscoll served the Archdiocese on many committees and boards.

THOMAS, Thora Patricia - T. Patricia Thomas, formerly of Mabou, NS and St. Anthony NL. passed away in Halifax Thursday morning, August 31, 2006. Born March 17, 1920 in Montreal, PQ, daughter of Lawrence and Hazel Lister, she was educated at Mount Royal High School in Montreal and Sir George Williams College, where she received an Associate Degree in Commerce. As a young adult, she was an avid sportswoman, excelling in tennis and horse riding. She was active in InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and volunteered as a camp counselor for underprivileged children. In May 1944, she was married to Gordon W Thomas MD. In August 1946, they went to St. Anthony, Newfoundland to join the International Grenfell Association. There, she quickly became involved in community work and was the consummate hostess, welcoming visitors, staff, volunteers and dignitaries alike to her home. She contributed significantly to the running of the Charles Curtis Hospital Auxiliary Gift Shop and the Grenfell Mission clothing store. She helped create the Grenfell Historical Society and was instrumental in establishing Grenfell House as a museum. Her desire to contribute to the work of the Grenfell Mission and her flair for interior decorating (including a diploma from the Chicago School of Interior Decoration) were evident in her many years as a volunteer, furnishing staff quarters for the Grenfell Mission houses and apartments in St Anthony. She was a devoted mother and supporter of youth. She organized a pre-school for her own children and residents of the Children's Home in St. Anthony and taught Sunday school for many years. She was active in the CGIT (Canadian Girls in Training) and was instrumental in starting Girl Guides and Brownies for whom she became District Commissioner of St. Anthony District in 1958. Dr. and Mrs. Thomas moved to Mabou, Cape Breton in 1976 where they began second careers in community and medical service. Mrs. Thomas helped her husband write the memoirs of their adventures with the Grenfell Mission (published as "From Sled to Satellite") and assisted in running a medical office from their home. She devoted her summers to family and grandchildren. She was an active supporter of community life in Mabou, as a member of the Hillsborough UC Ladies Aid Society, the Inverness Hospital Auxiliary and the local figure skating club. She was awarded the Queen's Jubilee Medal in 1977 and was a member of the Vanier Family Institute. Following the death of her husband in 1996, their family home and property in Mabou were donated to L'Arche Cape Breton. The house is used as a residence for adults with developmental disabilities and was recently renamed "Thomas House" in memory of the many years of dedicated service that Dr. and Mrs. Thomas provided to those in need. She was predeceased by her husband of 52 years. She is survived by sister Ruth Denton of Costa Rico and children Patricia (David) Simpson of Potomac, MD; Leonard (Margaret) Thomas of Corner Brook and Pamela (Perry) Colbourne of Halifax; grandchildren Timothy, Scott, John Simpson, Jane Gray; Krista Bezanson, Patti and Rob Thomas; Daniel and Sue Colbourne and great-grandchildren Meghan and William Simpson, Thomas Bezanson and Rex MacDonald. The funeral was held at the United Church in Port Hood, Nova Scotia on Sunday, September 3. Donations may be made the Dr. and Mrs. Thomas Scholarship Fund, c/o Mrs. Janet Patey, Curtis Memorial Hospital, St Anthony, NL, A0K 4S0.
