CASHIN, Laurence M. (Laurie) - Passed away at his home in St. John’s on March 18, 2008. He was predeceased by his parents Laurence V. Cashin of Cape Broyle and Anna (Hearn) of Bay Bulls. He is survived by his wife Carmel Bailey and his sons Anthony (Lisa), Peter (Edwina Toope) in Kitchener, Ontario and P.O. Martin with the Canadian Navy in Halifax; three grandchildren Antoinette, Michael and Bianca and his brother Richard (Patricia Canning).
He was a graduate of Memorial and Harvard University. He worked in the private sector in Manitoba, Ontario and Newfoundland. He retired from the Federal Public Service in 1991 having served primarily with the Department of Regional Development and Economic Expansion. The great cause of his life was with the Deaf Community. In 1969 he served as President of the Metro Toronto School for the Deaf Parents’ Association. In the early 1970’s he was a founding member of both the Canadian Co-ordinating Council on Deafness and the Newfoundland Co-ordinating Council (NCCD) on which he served as president from its founding to 1989 when he retired due to ill health. Among his major accomplishments were negotiating the assumption of financial liability for the operation of the TTY/TDD emergency phone service by the Province. He was responsible for getting the RCMP to set up a National 1-800 emergency service for TTY/TDD users. He obtained the first Closed Caption TV decoder in Canada and arranged for the local cable company to provide this service on a special channel for Deaf and Hard of Hearing users. He was also successful in having Closed Caption service provided by all Canadian TV channels. He established and trained sign language interpreters for work in the legal, employment and medical areas. Following the training, NCCD ran a successful interpreting service. He was instrumental in supporting the creation of the Newfoundland Branch of the Canadian Hard of Hearing Organization.
Perhaps his most significant effort was being the driving force for improvement in facilities, staffing and educational content for the first school for the Deaf and the creation of the School for the Deaf on Topsail Road is a testament to the success of these efforts. An ardent sailor most of his life, upon retiring he became a most active amateur radio operator. As part of this hobby, he became involved in the development of the capacity to send and receive e-mail through High Frequency Radio links. He was a major player in the development of a network of stations available for emergency communication in this province. The system has performed well over a number of years. In 2005, he was awarded the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award.
A special thanks to his attending physician, Dr. Patrick O’Shea. Cremation has taken place. Visitation from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. on Thursday and Friday at Carnell’s Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Road. Funeral service will be held on Saturday, March 22, 2008 at 11:00 a.m. from the Carnell Memorial Chapel.

DUGGAN, Dee (Dolores C.) - A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Dee, with grace and dignity, finished her life’s journey on March 11, 2008. She was born October 12, 1945 in Newfoundland. She grew up in St. Joseph’s, St. Mary’s Bay and at the age of 14 moved to St. John’s to finish her schooling. She stayed on and worked there until she moved to Penticton in March, 1975 and found a “place to stay forever”. She relished her new home but always stayed wholeheartedly connected to her Newfoundland roots. In November, 1979 she met her soulmate, Larry Sherstobitoff. It was a match made in heaven and they shared twenty-eight loving years, working hard, enjoying each other and their favourite activities which included traveling in their Suzuki, camping, fishing, dancing and spending lots of time with their many friends and their animals.
Dee was widely admired and respected for the contribution she made to the lives of so many people during a 26 year career at the Penticton Community Law Office. Her devotion to the community extended to years of volunteering for major events as well as sitting on the Boards of South Okanagan Women in Need Society and the Soupeteria. She also worked with the Social Planning Committee of the City of Penticton.
After retiring, Dee became very involved in walking and running, found a whole new community and added to her circle of friends. She joined the Sun Run clinic in 2001, completed seven Sun Runs and many Interior Road Races, including four half marathons. As a member of the Penticton Pounders she was named Rookie of the year in 2006. This award has recently been renamed “The Dee Duggan Rookie of the Year Award”. Dee considered this to be a great honour.
Predeceased by her parents, Art and Theresa Duggan. Dee is survived by the love of her, Larry; his mother Polly Sherstobitoff; her dearly loved cousins and her friends, far and wide. Everyone who has been fortunate enough to know and love Dee has been touched by a wonderful human being. We all mourn the loss of this unique and cherished person. Thanks are extended to the many people who helped, supported and comforted Dee and her family and friends during the last stage of her life. Flowers are greatly declined. Donations in Dee’s memory may be made to: Healing Touch, c/o Penticton United Church; South Okanagan Women In Need Society; Discovery House (c/o St. Ann’s Catholic Church). Dee’s life will be celebrated with a Mass of Christian Burial and reception at St. Ann’s Catholic Church, 1296 Main Street, Penticton on March 29, 2008 at 11:00 a.m. A celebration of Dee’s life will take place in St. Joseph’s, St. Mary’s Bay, Newfoundland at a later date to be announced.

WOOLBERT, Bernice Elizabeth (Fleet)- ‘Bonnie’ or ‘Bun’ to all of us, born 8/12/1938 in St John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, passed on to the gates of Heaven on 3/15/2008 in Merritt Island, Florida. Bonnie was born to John and Eileen Fleet in St John’s and was one of fifteen children. A student of Presentation Convent High School, Bonnie’s life began extraordinarily coming from such a large and loving family. Her loyal character and vibrant personality were molded from this familial foundation like a finished product from her father’s metal shop near Water Street. In 1955 Bonnie met a ‘Yank’ named James ‘Jim’ Woolbert, and in July 1956 they were married at St. John’s Basilica. Soon Bonnie and Jim were off to see the world on the wings of the U.S. Air Force. Expanding on her extraordinary life, Bonnie and Jim lived all over the world, to include Germany, Japan, Turkey and several U.S. locations, ultimately settling down in Florida in 1974. During ‘Her’ Air Force career, Bonnie became trained as a dental assistant and after Jim retired from the Air Force, Bonnie continued her work in the field of dentistry for another 20 years. Bonnie loved to play golf, to work in the garden with her flowers, and to cook. She was a perfect wife and loyal and dedicated mother. Her family was blessed by her endless love and constant support. In a word, she was magnificent.
Bonnie is survived by her husband of 51 years, Jim; their three sons, their wives, and five grandchildren. Bonnie is further survived, some in posthumous favour by her brothers: John and wife Doris of St. John’s (both deceased), Cyril of Bay Bulls, Bill and his wife Marge of St John’s, Kevin of St. John’s (deceased), Leo and wife Carol of Cambridge, Ontario, Leonard and wife Maria of Cambridge, Ontario; and her sisters: Mary and her husband Brendon (deceased) Janes of St. John’s, Eileen and her husband William (deceased) Walsh of St. John’s, Lorraine and her husband Vince Hogan of Northern Bay, Violet and her husband Gerald Mallard of Cambridge, Ontario, Helen and her husband Wally (deceased) Pottle of St. John’s, Florence and her husband Ernest Jahn of Lebanon, Pennsylvania, and Teresa and her husband Ronald Chafe of Bay Bulls. The Woolbert family would also like to pay remembrance to Helen’s first husband, Edgar Bishop, who’s whimsical nature and ever-present musical shows entertained all of us for so many years.
