CONGDON, Patrick (Packie) Gerald - Passed peacefully away at St. Patrick's Mercy Home in the presence of his loving wife and family on Christmas Day, December 25th, 2010. Samuel Congdon saved his best for last - his youngest son, Patrick, was laid to rest at the ripe age of 89. Patrick Gerald Congdon was born in St. John's, NF in 1921. He was known to his family as "Packie", his fellow boxers as "Kid" Congdon, his Xaverian brothers as "Brother Douglas", his wife Frances as "darling Pat", his students as "Mr. Congdon", his many nieces and nephews as "Uncle Pat", but to my brother Sean and I, he was "Grape." A very patient and thoughtful man, Patrick held true to the adage, "It is best to plan your work as though all depended on you, and pray as though all depended on God." He was strong in his Catholic faith, but stronger in his love for his family. He touched the lives of all those around him, and many can recall a famous saying or story that he relayed. He hailed from the rock, but his calling as a Xaverian Brother took him to New York at the age of 20. He studied at Catholic University in Maryland and New York University where he completed his Master's in Education. Teaching school brought the right mix of intellect and athleticism to keep his interest. He was a Toastmaster, a Knight of Columbus, an avid chess enthusiast and track and field coach. He appreciated a fine scotch and a good cigar. He remained in the brotherhood 18 years until he returned to Newfoundland to attend his father's death. Superintendent of Education in Labrador City was a calling that also brought to his side a fine wife by the name of Frances Walsh. Two children rounded out the family as further opportunities opened up in southern Ontario. He enjoyed teaching high school and soccer in Harrow, Ontario and remained in the sunny south until recently when he again returned to St John's with his wife again at his side. His sons have both grown and left with families of their own. Sean married Pina, and they have 3 children Sarah, Luke, and Laura. They live in Hamilton, Ontario. Gerald married Karyn and they have 3 children Jack, Max, and Molly. They live in South Carolina, U.S.A. Patrick's brothers and sisters, (Stella Haire, Gertrude Woodford, Genevieve Mahoney, John, Stan and Cyril) have since passed, but his nieces and nephews played a needed supporting role until the day he died. Pat always enjoyed Christmas as it allowed for cheer and good spirits. To die on Christmas Day will always remind us of his love of giving, compassion, forgiveness and family - traits we all treasure at this time of year. Resting at Caul's Funeral Home, LeMarchant Rd., St. John's NL. Visitation on Tuesday December 28th, from 2 p.m. - 9 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial 11 a.m. on Wednesday December 29th, from St. Kevin's Church, Goulds. Interment to follow at St. Kevin's Cemetery. Donations may be made in his memory to St. Kevin's Parish, St. Patrick's Mercy Home Foundation, or a charity of one's choice.

MCCAIN, Joyce Catherine - It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, Joyce Catherine McCain on December 31, 2010. She passed away peacefully in the comfort of her home, surrounded by family and friends, after a courageous battle with cancer. Joyce was predeceased by her husband, Peter McCain (1997), and her beloved brother Michael Wickham (2009). She is survived by her sons Maurice O'Brien (Kitchener-Waterloo), Stephen O'Brien, Luke McCain and John McCain (St. John's), and by her siblings Justin (Jessie), Charlie (Margery), Diane (Richard) and sister-in-law Phyllis. Joyce was born in 1952 in St. John's, Newfoundland. She acted as manager of Christians Bar before moving to New Brunswick with her future husband, Peter. She returned to St. John's after the death of her husband, becoming involved in the various activities of St. Bonaventure's College - the school her two youngest sons attended - and continued her work as Director of the Harrison McCain Foundation. She was an enthusiastic yet inconspicuous supporter of local art and culture; and an especially passionate proponent of the annual Woody Point Writers Festival, never hesitating to offer her lodgings to any attendee in need. She walked her first marathon at the age of 50 in Dublin, Ireland, and repeated the feat some years later. She was a fearless traveller and a voracious reader. Her love of conversation was well known and she was as comfortable discussing ancient philosophy as she was local politics. She had a wide range of friends, and was always willing to extend a helping hand to any of them. She was an active champion of the underdog. We cannot recount all of her good deeds because they were solely between her and the recipient. She loved Newfoundland almost as much as she loved her family. She maintained a very active social life, with an extensive network of friends and acquaintances. She was always willing to extend a helping hand to a friend (or stranger) in need. Visitation will be on Monday, January 3rd from 7-9 p.m. and Tuesday, January 4th from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. at Carnell's Funeral home, on Freshwater Road. Funeral Services will take place at St. Pius X church on Wednesday, January 5th at 9:30 a.m. We would like to extend a special expression of gratitude to all of Joyce's close family and friends who gave their loving support throughout her illness. Donations can be made in Joyce's name to Friends of Writers at Woody Point, PO Box 290, Norris Point, NL, A0K 3V0.

THOMAS (Smith), Harriett Roberta - (March 15, 1944 - December 31, 2010) - An émigré to Newfoundland, Robbie became a beloved and essential figure in the cultural life of her adopted country. A tireless believer, she became a friend and second mother to the swarms of young people drawn to her and her son's musical home. As a restaurateur, she created delicious and nourishing food for her community and gave "first jobs" to the many who found their way to her kitchen door. She worked relentlessly to shore up many rickety arts organizations giving guidance and assurance to the eager spirits there that matched her own. A mother, a grandmother, a cook, a traveller, a walker, a painter, an archivist, an activist for human rights, an indispensable friend, in all these roles she had a profound effect on all whose lives she touched. Robbie fought her battle with cancer the same way she lived her life, with a courageous heart and a pragmatic grace. She passed peacefully away at The Victoria General site at the QE II Health Sciences Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia on December 31, 2010 surrounded by her family and loved ones. Leaving to mourn, Louis and Tanya, David "Lil" and Susan, Danny and Andrea, and grandchildren Gabriel, Kaleb, Taylor, Jorja, Kingston, baby Thomas, Jessica, and brother Jack. She will be lovingly remembered by surrogate daughters, Dana Warren and Lori Cooper and also, Reg Thomas, Jane Holloway, Wendy Phillips as well as many nephews, nieces, cousins, and dear, dear friends. She was predeceased by her father David "Slim", mother Phillippa "Pip", and brother David. Robbie's life was a life of seeking and love. A life that truly was forever young. The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to those who helped care for Robbie in both St. John's and Halifax throughout the course of her illness. A cremation has taken place. A Halifax memorial reception will be held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday January 5th at The Halifax Club, 1682 Hollis Street.

"God saw you getting tired, And a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around you, And whispered come with me. With tearful eyes we watched And saw you pass away.
Although we love you dearly, We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best."
