BRUCE, Agnes - We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our dear mother, Agnes Bruce who died peacefully surrounded by her loving family at the Lion's Manor in Placentia on February 27th, 2016. Agnes was born on Merasheen Island and at the age of 16 left home to pursue her dream of teaching. This dream would lead her to her future husband Ned, and both would settle in Placentia to raise six children. Having been a stay-at-home mom until her children were older, Agnes again pursued her passion for teaching and worked as a well admired and respected teacher at St. Edward's School for over 30 years. She was greatly loved by her students and to this day is referred to by a myriad of former students as their favourite teacher. Agnes created a legacy that will live on through the hearts of the many students she touched as she will always be remembered for how important and special she made them feel. Agnes was proud of her roots and loved to sing; she and her sister Christina were often called upon at social gatherings to sing the Merasheen song, written by her brother, Ernie. She was an avid reader, enjoyed gardening, making the family cut glass dessert, playing darts, and bingo, as well as visiting her family in Ontario and Alberta. Agnes was predeceased by her husband Edward (Ned), her parents Paul and Jane Wilson, brothers Ernie (Myrtle), Gerald (Clara) and Paul (Lil), also sisters Christina (John Rose), Alice (Paddy White), Carmel (Pat McCabe), Wilhelmina (Rick Reichlmayr) and Grace (John Weeks), and her loving pet Ceasar. Leaving to mourn are her six children, son Eddy (Della), daughters Debbi, Rossie (Ron Dray), Bonnie (Kurt Norman), Ticky and Jill, also six grandchildren - Eddy, Amber, Taylr, Brandee, Cody and Madisen, sister Laura (Al Goss), brother-in-law William Bruce, nieces, nephews, and extended family and friends.

The Bruce family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the many family and friends who supported them always and especially during this trying time. Also a very special thank you to Dr. Mangat and the Lion's Manor staff for the dedicated care and compassion given to our mom, and for the kindness and patience given to our family and friends; it will be forever coveted.
Just give me one moment in time as there is no present like the time. We love and miss you mom.
Rest well beautiful lady.

BUTLER (Thomas), Beverley Anne - It is with great sadness that the family of the late Beverley Anne Butler (Thomas) announces her passing at home in Grand Falls-Windsor, NL, at the age of 66. Beverley leaves to mourn with fond and loving memories her son Dr. Jared (Amy Drummond); daughter Bethany (Matthew Barrett); grandchildren Ainsley and Jaye; her favorite fur baby Lando; sister Sylvia (John Potter); brothers Wayne (Frances) and Brian (Mary); sister-in-law Jean Thomas, along with numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

The family gathered at the Royal Canadian Legion, Queen St., Grand Falls-Windsor, NL, on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 from 6:30 - 8:30 PM, to celebrate Beve's life with her many relatives and friends. All were welcome to participate in sharing of stories and memories of Beve. As many of you know, one of Beve's passions has been the history and heritage of our town and province. In lieu of flowers, we respectfully request that a donation be made in her memory to: Grand Falls-Windsor Heritage Society Collection Management Fund, P.O. Box 439, 7 High Street, Grand Falls-Windsor, NL. A2A 2J8, Attn: Audrey Burke, Collection Management. Tax receipts are available for all donations made. Cremation has taken place and there will be a private family service in Harbour Grace, NL, at a later date. Since the Fall of 2012, Beve battled her cancer head on - with a positive and courageous attitude. Her bravery and determination were only exceeded by her character and superb outlook. She was granted so many of her wishes since her diagnosis (not the least of which was the outcome of the last federal election) and spent her time at the things she loved most - heritage, friends, and family. She cherished her time as "Marma" and loved her daily adventures with her personal nurse - daughter-in-law Amy. Beve lived life to its fullest. She has been and will continue to be an inspiration to all who knew her. She is loved by so many people with whom she interacted. We shall love her forever, like her for always, and for as long as we are living, our Mom she will be. The family would like to acknowledge all those that so graciously provided support, food, and acts of kindness during these difficult times. There are so many, from Audrey, Susan, Alice, Nellie, Imelda and colleagues from Milcrest Academy, Daphine, Cindy, Dr. Lynette Powell, Ruth Wall, and countless others. You all know who you are and we love and appreciate all you have done. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Sunset Memorial Funeral Home, 10 Bayley Street, Grand Falls-Windsor, NL.

He will be dearly remembered for his sense of humour, his kindness, generosity and the way in which he made us all feel like we were so special to him. He loved his wife fiercely and Mildred holds dear their many years of adventure, togetherness, helping each other through life's ups and downs, laughing and enjoying wonderful meals together with family around them. Nelson held a strong and enduring faith in God and a special connection to the Anglican Cathedral. Visits from Deal Noel, Reverend Paul and Canon Sheppard were of great comfort to him and his family in recent weeks. For over 20 years, Mildred and Nelson volunteered their time to the Emmaus House Food Bank. Nelson believed strongly in helping others and enjoyed the fellowship of volunteerism. With his wonderful wife, Nelson had the love of a small but special family; children Joan (Lloyd), Anne (Gerry), five grandchildren Stephen, Susan (Gord), Christopher (Andreia), Michelle (Doug), Allison (Jason), seven great-grandchildren Jessica, Jack, Josh, Jared, Ben, Raquel and Violeta.

She was married for 60 years to John Walsh who was well known around the city of St. John's as the demolition man, or the man who torn down most of old St. John's. Let it not be said that wherever there is a great man there is an equally great woman by his side. While Helen didn't work directly in the business, she worked endlessly behind the scenes.

Her most devoted passion was for her children and grandchildren whom she loved fearlessly. Helen also loved and enjoyed walking outdoors and many times, you would see her hike up Signal Hill, the Battery or QuidiVidi Pond. She also had a love for Irish and Newfoundland music.

"We had a wonderful mother,
One who never really grew old;
Her smile was made of sunshine, And her heart was solid gold;
Her eyes were as bright as shining stars,
And in her cheeks fair roses you see.
We had a wonderful mother,
And that' s the way it will always be.
But take heed, because she's still keeping an eye on all of us,
So let's make sure she will like what she sees."

Harold always worked hard and had many jobs in his life. He later went on to start his own business where he became a successful and well respected entrepreneur.

He leaves them with fond memories and many lessons on living a life of integrity and determination.

Family Caring For Family
God saw you getting tired,
When a cure was not to be,
So he wrapped his arms around you,
And whispered, "Come to me".
You didn't deserve what you went through,
So he gave you rest,
God's garden must be beautiful,
He only takes the best.
And when I saw you sleeping,
So peaceful and free from pain,
I could not wish you back to suffer that again.
