ABBOTT, Grace Evelyn - November 12, 1917 to March 21, 2010. On March 21st , 2010, the town of Fortune lost one of its kindest and most dignified citizens. Grace Abbott (nee King) was the loving mother of Carl (Karen) from Kamloops, B.C. and "Super-Gram" to Mark and Suzanne (Kristopher Fulton) of Vancouver, B.C. She was predeceased by her husband Bill Abbott (originally from Bonavista) in 1971, and her love endured from the time of their marriage in 1946 until the day of her passing. Because of her kindness and caring nature, this elegant lady was jokingly referred to as "Mother Theresa" by her nine brothers and sisters. She was predeceased by brothers Geo, Jack and Charlie King and sister Dove Riggs and she is survived by sisters: Daisy Seymour, Beth King, Millicent Coleman, Kaye Lord and brother Clyde King, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. All family members are especially appreciative of the nursing care and extraordinary love and devotion of her sister Beth. Grace had a lengthy career as a primary school teacher, beginning in Bonavista and Fortune, continuing to MacPherson Academy and St. Andrew's in St. John's and then Fern Street in Corner Brook. A celebration of the life of our "amazing" Grace, whose life was the epitome of "gracefulness", will be held at 2 p.m. on Thursday, March 25th at Fortune United Church. Interment will follow at a private family service in Corner Brook on Saturday, March 27th. No flowers by request, but anyone wishing to make a donation in her memory may do so to the new organ fund, Fortune United Church, P.O. Box 87, Fortune, NL, A0E 1P0, or to a charity of your choice.

COADY, Father Linus (1932 - 2010) - Linus J. departed this beautiful world at peace with God, and with all those who loved him. He went in the hope of barely getting inside the gates of heaven, just enough space to squeeze in. He died, too, in the hope of seeing Sergei Rachmaninov, the Russian concert pianist, who filled his hours with beautiful music ... and with a bit of luck, he might even see John McCormack. And, of course, Linus left in the additional hope that he will meet up with the multitude of those he loved and who loved him. Need I mention dear old Mother Church? I think not. It was a seventy-eight year love affair! Saint Thomas Moore consoled his weeping executioner by saying "Cheer up my friend. We will all meet merrily in heaven." So to those who might weep my passing: Cheer up! The best is yet to come!!.

GLEASON, Thomas Patrick - PhD - Educator. June 9, 1925 - March 8, 2010. Thomas Gleason was born in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1925, eldest son of Maude and Thomas Gleason of New Richmond, Wisconsin. A great son, brother, husband, father and grandfather, he made his transition on March 8, 2010, in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. With his wife, Marie Kopach Gleason, to whom he was married sixty-three years, he enjoyed dual Canadian-American citizenship. He is survived by Marie and three children: Julie (Bill) Comstock, of Highland, Michigan, Jessica (Ted) Hoppe, of Denver, Colorado, and Thomas (Sue) Gleason, Tokyo, Japan; three grandchildren: Sean and Kristin Hoppe, and Billy Comstock, and two Minnesota siblings: his brother, Jack (Joan) Gleason of St. Paul and sister Glenna (Neil) Bealka of Stillwater, Minnesota. He was preceded in death by his son, John.
Tom attended St. Luke's Elementary School, St. Paul until his parents' passing when he was a teenager, at which point education-minded teacher-aunts of his Gleason family determined he could get the best secondary education at Nazareth Hall Preparatory Seminary, a lake and wooded Catholic academic community which also taught him love of outdoors and prepared him in Latin and Greek.
He served in the Second World War in the Navy and in the Air Force during the Korean War, and then enrolled at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. The GI Bill veterans' benefits provided access to student housing as well as bachelor and master's degrees. He became a remedial reading teacher and principal in Wayzata, Minnesota before accepting a position with Department of Defense Schools, which led to tours in Paris and Germany. Returning to Minnesota he completed a specialist degree in education, and became an elementary school principal at the American International School, New Delhi, India. At Michigan State University, Lansing he completed a doctorate in Comparative International Education. His dissertation was on third-culture education, describing learning processes of American students living in a foreign country, enhanced by a tier of educational systems; he considered the PhD his greatest accomplishment.
Dr. Gleason accepted a position at New Brunswick's French language Universite de Moncton, and subsequently became a faculty member in the College of Education at Memorial University, St. John's. He particularly enjoyed conducting distance learning with student teachers throughout the island, as well as continuing to take Latin and Greek classics courses himself. During retirement, he will be remembered for his community garden, Memorial University fitness center athletics and walks, and endless reading expectation for The Economist and multiple newspapers.
A family and friends celebration, with children welcome, will be held at Carnell's Visitation & Reception Centre, 1045 Topsail Road, Mt. Pearl, Newfoundland, A1B 3P2, on Saturday, March 13, 2010 from 1 - 4 pm (www.carnells.com) (709-747-7740). A US military burial will be held at Fort Snelling National Cemetery, St. Paul, Minnesota at a later date.
Notice of his worldly transition was provided to alumnae publications at Memorial University, the University of Minnesota, Michigan State University, and American Embassy/International Schools. Obituaries were sent to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Minneapolis Star/ Tribune and The Telegram/St. John's. His family and friends will continue to celebrate his life, traditions and legacy.
Memorials may be sent to Family Medicine Residents Education Fund, c/o Family Medicine, Memorial University, 300 Prince Phillip Drive, Health Sciences Centre, St. John's Newfoundland, A1B3V6.

HANN (McCarthy), Mercedes Mary - When you are sorrowful - look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.” Kahlil Gibran.
On the 19th of March, 2010, as quietly and as gently as she occupied this world, did Mercedes Hann leave it. To coin what has become a family phrase … she has "gone home." And we so grieve her passing!
Who was this woman who will be so sorely missed? She was a loving wife to Port Royal's Norbert Hann for most of 59 years. On Friday night, when she had only minutes departed, he took her hand in his, and with bent head and heavy heart, that father of ours, who says so little, he held her hand, lauded her beauty, her gentleness and her kindness … and made her promise to "save a place for him in heaven." She was a tender and loving mother to six dear children … Elaine (Richard), Wayne (Brenda), Dan, Larry (Glenys), Lena (Rick) and Ted (Penny). Dan left us early, and we feel sure that he took her hand in that quiet room on Friday night and led her home. These children have gone on to create grandchildren … Giselle, Wayne, Cassidy, Kate, Erica, MacLean, Allie, Candice and Daniel. The relationship that these grandkids have with their grandmother is witness of her devotion to them, and the sweet love they have for her.
She was sister (and sister-in-law) to a marvellous crew of McCarthy women and men - Mike, Gus, Frank, Din, Bernice, Ann and Stella, every single one of whom have left this world before her, and each of whom has gone on to create the McCarthy family … the kindest and gentlest people on the planet. We love them dearly, and know that her passing is a poignant reminder of their own respective losses. She was sister-in-law, teacher and friend to a large crowd of "wonderfully fine-Hanns", Norbert's family, Port Royal born, now living all over the U.S. and Canada, and whose memories of Mercedes are filled with her humility, her generosity and her gentle nature. No trip "home" was complete without a trip to Freshwater to see Mercedes, and share some of Norbert's fishcakes. She was a loyal friend to a very broad Placentia Bay community. Most years she co-managed the Guild with her community-sisters; she did their income tax returns; drove them to the grocery store when they could not; took them to St. John's for their specialist's appointment; she shared with them the smoke in the bingo room; or a game of 45s; she worked tirelessly with them catering to community weddings in the town hall. There must be a great deal of catering in heaven … for many preceded her there. She was an entrepreneur when it was rare to put the words female and entrepreneur together. She was a school teacher … who, while in Port Royal, where she met Norbert, taught many of her future family. She was a Freshwater parish secretary, skilled in bookkeeping. She witnessed much change in the Church, and provided that needed administrative stability and continuity as she served many, many priests who transferred in and out of her community. She was a telephone operator on the U.S. Base in Argentia. For years, the polite Marines on the main gate could be heard to greet her on her way in and out to work "Good morning, Mercedes" … her name spoken with the sweet drawl of the South and sounding more like a fine automobile than her English pronunciation. In the end, all the tributes aside, Mercedes Hann saw life through to her 83rd year, surprising most of us with her stamina and determination to live. Her health had been fragile for years. Finally - the Hann family would like to acknowledge the kindness and compassion of the staff of the Lions Manor. Their attentiveness to Mercedes and consideration of Norbert made this road easier for all of us. We salute their gentle professionalism and thank them with all our hearts. Mom was much loved, much respected, and is much missed. Could any of us ask for more as we move on from this worldly existence? Safe journey, Mom, leave room for all of us. Resting at Maher's Funeral Home, Placentia. Open visitation to take place on Monday, March 22 from noon to 9 p.m.; family and close friends on Tuesday from 10 a.m. 1 p.m. Funeral service to take place on Tuesday, March 23rd at 2 p.m. at Holy Rosary Church in Freshwater, Placentia.

He is remembered by the love of his life Donna Penny. He is predeceased by his parents Charles and Julia (nee Rowe) O'Keefe, his uncles James Rowe and Arthur O'Keefe, his aunts Theresa (Clarence) FitzGerald and Elizabeth (Dominic) Rowe, his sister in law Barbara Ann O'Keefe (nee Hilliard) and one of his best friends, Harry O'Keefe.

The excellent care provided by the doctors, nurses and staff of the Placentia Hospital and Health Sciences at St. John's greatly contributed to his quality of life in the final days. Pastoral care by Fr. Francis Roche and Fr. Jerome Hann provided comfort to him and the family. James, better known as Jim, attended the school for the blind in Halifax as a young boy and returned home to Pt. Verde to work as a farmer and handy man. In his recent years he tended to Gringo, the house dog, to make sure he was well fed and loved. Jim loved Irish and Newfoundland music and loved to waltz with Donna to some of their favorite tunes. Since 1980 he enjoyed an annual trip to the Max Simms Camp, near Bishop Falls, with other campers sponsored by the Placentia Lions Club and the Canadian National Institute for the Blind. These trips were very special to Jim to meet up with Donna, Wince, Hedley and so many others. He also enjoyed trips to Burgoyne's Cove in Trinity Bay to meet Donna's family. Friday night darts at the Star Hall in Placentia helped break up the long winter months and he enjoyed some special moments with his Dart Buddies - especially after a big win. All those who knew Jim will feel a great loss by his passing. He took great pride in being the god father of his niece Aime O'Keefe and he welcomed many opportunities to provide care for his grand nephew Evan O'Keefe. He was a wonderful son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend. Resting at Maher's Funeral Home, Placentia.

Wit Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.

VECCHI, Linda Mary - Born in 1956 in Canandaigua, New York. She grew up above her family's bakery, secure in the unwavering and unquestioning love of her father, the late Renato "Ray" Vecchi, her mother Betty Vecchi, and her three older sisters: Pamela, Diana and Rena. Linda was a loving daughter and sister, and a constant source of pride to her family, both for her achievements and for her consistently kind and caring nature. During her early years in Canandaigua, she developed her lifelong passions for family, friendship, reading, nature, the theatre, and music.
Linda's passion for the study of English literature brought her to St. Bonaventure University, where she completed her M.A. degree, and to the University of Western Ontario, where she completed her doctorate. At Western, she met and befriended Mark Cumming, whom she married in 1983. She was his loyal and loving companion for almost thirty years, and an amazingly supportive and attentive mother to their two wonderful children, Alessandra Elizabeth Vecchi Cumming and Emily Anne Vecchi Cumming. From 1984 on, Linda made her home in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, where she taught with distinction in the English department of Memorial University, serving as an uncommonly engaging and compassionate teacher and an unfailingly warm-hearted and supportive colleague.
In 1994, Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer, and while her cancer was in remission for thirteen active and productive years, it returned inexorably in the fall of 2007. From that point until the end of her beautiful life, on March 23, 2010, she faced her disease with characteristic grace and courage. True to her pledge, she resisted until the very end the devastating illness which threatened to remove her from the family she loved so dearly. Linda is fondly remembered by Betty, Pam and Skip, Diana and Bill, Rena and Eric, Mark, Allie and Emily, by her extended families in the United States and Canada, and by many friends and colleagues.
A memorial celebration of Linda Vecchi will be held at the D.F. Cook Recital Hall, School of Music, Memorial University at 10 a.m. this Saturday, March 27. Parking is available adjacent to the Music Building in lot 15B. In lieu of flowers, we ask that friends make donations this fall to the Run for the Cure and to the Terry Fox Marathon of Hope.
