Raised and educated (Holloway School; Prince of Wales College) at St. John's, Fraser passed peacefully on 18 December 2014 at Jewish General Hospital Segal Cancer Centre, Montreal (which provided heroic care) 30 months after diagnosis of neuro-cancer.

By profession Fraser was a pharmacist in St. John's, then pharmaceutical representative in Labrador City. He graduated to management with pharma industry corporation Frank W. Horner Ltd. in Kingston, Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto; then with pharma toxicology research facilities near Montreal and, finally, with the global agency policing pharmaceutical product trials and manufacturing. His adult life-long commitment to Newfoundland and Labrador Pharmacy Board was, in 2012, recognized with the Pharmacist Emeritus designation.
Certified by the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), he refereed soccer matches in Canada. Certified as a Canadian Soccer Association Provincial Level Instructor and Assessor, he served for 25 years in Quebec and Ontario as soccer referee, mentor, director and executive president. He organized soccer tournaments both in Canada and internationally and, until his passing, sat on the Board responsible for youth soccer's International Cup. His profound influence on soccer, in Canada and beyond, was acknowledged with the Federation de Soccer du Quebec Centennial Medal, and by induction into the Hall of Fame of Quebec's Lake St. Louis Regional Soccer Association.
Accomplished bicyclist and Nordic skier, Fraser's perceptive naturalist photography was widely commended and often published.
Life, in Fraser's estimation, was not a dress rehearsal; rather, a daily opportunity to bestow generosity; display empathy; impart wisdom and, most important, love family.
Last night I saw the sunset fires sink in the dark'ningWest, while save the chill wind's ghostly sigh, all lay in tranquil rest.
(From 'Remembrance' by Capt. Leo Murphy in memory of his Orderly, Private James L. Day (Nfld. Reg. No. 1484), Fraser's paternal uncle who (with another paternal uncle, Private Walter Day, Nfld. Reg. No. 1660) survived Beaumont Hamel, France on 01 July 1916. James died in action at Arras, France on 23 April 1917 (age 19 years).

GREEN, Joseph Clarence - March 13, 1925 - December 4, 2014. After a life lived with pure selflessness, deep love of family, enormous integrity, hard work, and above all, fun, Joe passed away peacefully with Bill (Margaret Shapter), his partner for 70 years, at his side. Celebrating his long life and giving gratitude for his love are his wife Bill, their seven children: David (Shelley) Sidney BC, Denise Lewis (Max) Keller TX, Cathy Dutton (John), Rosanne Kirby (Fred), Donna Ball (Peter), Michael (Carolyn), Janet Miller (Brent) Maple Grove, MN; their seventeen grandchildren: Kenneth and Andrew Green and Sarah Loder, Stephen and Kimberly Lewis, Johnathan and Adam Dutton and Taryn Baker, Andrea and Eric Kirby, Gregory, Valerie and Christopher Ball, Hollilyn and Hannah Green, Zachary and Leah Miller; and ten great-grandchildren: Maggie Green, Henry and Millie Green, Brenden and Sophia Loder, Melina and Mila Lewis, Nathan Dutton, Isla Baker, and Chloe Mullett-Green.

The son of Hayward Green (Hants Harbour) and Linda Rowe (Heart's Content), Joe grew up living what he called the best of both worlds, going to school in St. John's and spending the summers fishing in Hants Harbour and Winterton. He served nearly twelve years with the Sea Cadets, Terranova Corps and oversaw the startup of a new Corps at Mount Cashel Orphanage. A highly principled businessman, Joe is best known as President of TRA Newfoundland building the Foodland brand throughout the Province, helping many communities and their independent grocers. Joe was very active throughout his life from sports at Prince of Wales Collegiate (basketball, hockey, baseball), to bowling, skiing, golfing, and as he estimated, walking a million miles. He was an avid reader and gardener, a talented painter and wood carver, and had a knack for making good wine. Joe valued education and encouraged all in his family to pursue post-secondary studies. His family will receive visitors at Carnells Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Rd. on Friday December 5 and Saturday December 6 from 2 to 4 PM and 7 to 9 PM. Two of the most important things to Joe were a good celebration and having all his family together. Therefore, we will hold a service to celebrate his life later, when all family can be home. Special thanks to the staff at Cambridge Estates. In Bill's words, "He was a great man!" To send a message of condolence or sign the memorial guest book, please visit www.carnells.com

We are all Butterflies
Today you fly and are free,
Just like the butterfly you told me
Changes are necessary
to blossom and to be free
Always remember you are with me.
Perched high upon that flower
Sucking its nectar to
gain strength and power.
Always following
the sun light and beams,
Forever remembering
to chase your dreams.
Mom, as each year your return
We know that today you fly and are free,
Just like the butterfly you told me.

JEWELL, Catherine - Catherine (The Kid), age 86, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, December 10, 2014 at her home in Bellingham, WA surrounded by her loving family. She was born on the Murphy family dairy farm in Kilbride, St. John's Newfoundland Canada, to James and Mary Densmore Murphy. Although the youngest in her boisterous Irish Catholic family, she did chores and helped out on the family farm side-by-side with her nine brothers and sister. An avid reader, Catherine was educated by the Sisters of Mercy at Littledale Academy, where she achieved the status of first violin in the orchestra. Upon graduation, her beloved sister Mary funded secretarial training, and Catherine was hired by the Naval Air Station, Argentia, where she met the love of her life, Chuck. They married in 1951 at Corpus Christi Church, with a lovely reception in the gardens at Bowring Park.
Catherine and Chuck traveled extensively during his 20 years of military service, giving birth to seven sons and three daughters at Navy bases throughout the United States and Canada. Upon his military retirement, they settled in West Memphis, AR where Catherine was a faithful member of St. Michael's Parish for 48 years, attending daily Mass.
Catherine lived for her children and her family, demonstrating her daily devotion to them, whether it was making their clothes, teaching them to swim (she was a lifeguard in her youth), baking cookies for homeroom, scouting jamborees, band practices, etc. After 35 years of parenting, she joyfully embraced being a grandmother, helping to raise many of her grandchildren.
An intrepid, self-determined woman, Catherine once drove 5,500 miles round trip to Newfoundland to visit her Mother, bringing along her seven youngest children and the family dog, Sniffles! As a young widow, Catherine went back to work as the office manager for the Hearing Aid Group of Arkansas for ten years. Her eagerness to learn led to developing computer skills, which she put to good use as a long-time volunteer for Friends for Life, an HIV/AIDS advocacy organization, working side by side with her son and FFL Board member, Curtis.
Catherine, while very reserved and private, cherished her friends, particularly her "Birthday Group", the Social Butterflies and the Infant of Prague Guild. With her gentle nature and sweet smile, Catherine was always in great demand; warmly welcoming parishioners as a Greeter at Sunday Mass or in the parish kitchen making hundreds of dozens of homemade raviolis. Creative and artistic in nature, Catherine was well known for her stained glass design. An avid gardener who favored blooming flowers, Catherine could often be found reading and relaxing by her koi pond, while watching over and feeding all the birds in the neighborhood. Catherine was a world traveler and later in life, developed a passion for riding in hot air balloons, white water rafting, and even parasailing 600' over the Gulf of Mexico at the spry young age of 82! Above all else, Catherine valued her faith and treasured the precious time spent with her family.
"Her children rise up and call her blessed" ~ Proverbs 31:28. "The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not 'get over' the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but, you will never be the same; nor should you be the same, nor would you want to be." ~ Elizabeth Kubler-Ross and John Kessler.
Catherine is survived by her: Children-Stephanie (Bob Freeman), White Rock, BC, Canada; Timothy (Jacquie Anderson) Seattle, WA; Susan, Bellingham, WA, Russell (Leslie Adair), Charleston, SC; Christopher (Suzanne Cameron), Seattle, WA; Kimberly, Queensland, AU; Franklin (Andrea Person), Atlanta, GA; Shawn (Melinda Plass), Memphis, TN; Tracy (Malinda Webster), Jackson, MS; Grandchildren-Dylan and Glyndon (Rachel Grisham) Jewell; Jeremiah (Megan Humter) and Sarah Jewell; Chase (Heather), Seth (Chelsea Rose) and Hannah Jewell; Zachary and Nicole Jewell; Samuel and Patrick Jewell; Michail, Katija and Curtis Kressibucher; Devin and Colin Jewell; and Ian Jewell; Great-grandchildren-Nicholas Smith, Margaret and Catalina Jewell; Lexi Smith, Brody Jewell and Kendra Padgett; Damien Jewell; Alyssa and Ava Harvey; Sydney and Cora Jewell; Seth Jr. and Sara Beth Jewell; Siblings-Mary Murphy Aylward and Leo (Cynthia Shortall) Murphy, Kilbride, St. John's Newfoundland Canada; Sisters-in-law-Phyllis Cox Murphy, Verna Jewell Polnaszek; Many, many loving nieces, nephews and cherished lifelong friends.

He was always asking for the re-telling of stories about the old days, was grateful to share his love of "Southeast" with his family.

She was an animal lover and had a natural way with them and they were drawn to her in return. She was also a life-long care giver, having nursed two husbands and her sister Agnes through their battles with cancer.
