The youngest of eleven children, at the age of eleven she was diagnosed with tuberculosis. She spent most of the next 15 years in the Sanitorium in St. John's fighting this disease. Despite having been anointed on several occasions and being given a slim chance of surviving, her willpower and determination won the battle. She was told by her doctors that her chances of successfully bearing children were also slim and she went on to give birth to three babies - 8, 11 and 12 pounds. She was a very talented artist and loved to draw, paint, read, write poetry and songs, and play the piano. She had a passion for learning and preserving the history and genealogy of Ferryland and the Southern Shore and became a valuable resource to anyone doing research on the area. She immersed herself in the things she loved and she went out of her way to help people in whatever way she could. She was a very dignified, deep and caring person, a woman of many talents and she touched the lives of so many people.
A special thank you goes out to the staff of the 3rd Floor West, Escasoni Complex for the wonderful care given to our mother over the past six months.

We have to mourn the loss of one, We did our best to save Beloved on earth, regretted still, Remembered in the grave. 'Twas hard to part with one so dear We little thought the time was near, Farewell, dear one, your life is past Our love for you till the end will last.

Miss Me but Let Me Go
When I come to the end of the road
and the sun has set for me,
I want no rites or rituals in a gloom filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free, miss me a
little but not too long and not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love we once shared
Miss me but let me go.
For this is a journey we all must take and each must go alone.
It's all a part of the master plan
a step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart,
See family and friends we know.
Take time to heal, though we must part
miss me but let me go.

"A Refuge for the poor,
a Shelter from the storm
This is our God
He will wipe away your tears
and return your wasted years
This is our God
A Father to the orphan,
a Healer to the broken
This is our God
And He brings peace to our madness
and comfort in our sadness
This is our God
A Fountain for the thirsty,
a Lover for the lonely
This is our God
He brings glory to the humble and crowns for the faithful
This is our God"
Psalm 23:4
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff comfort me.

FAMILY CARING FOR FAMILY
Sleep on dear mother your work is over, your willing hands will toil no more. Kind you were, loving and true, no friends on earth we'll find like you.

ROSSITER (Dwyer), Catherine Mary - Passed peacefully away on Thursday, March 8, 2012, in St. John's, Newfoundland. Catherine was born on Bell Island in August, 1918 to loving compassionate parents John Dwyer and Johanna Kelly. Raised in a large family of brothers and sisters, every year on her birthday her father would say that the day Catherine was born was one of his most successful days fishing; she was a sign of good fortune. Unlike many girls in those days, Catherine completed a high school education that gave her a love of reading as well as sharp math skills that made her a great manager - much like her father. In 1944, Catherine married John Rossiter of Calvert, Newfoundland who worked with the Roman Catholic Church on Bell Island. Theirs was an exceptional union of 50 years. They shared a quiet love, raised six girls, and contributed to the well-being of many others, especially those less fortunate. Their door was always open - friends, family and visitors always welcome.
Catherine will live on through the lives of those who knew her as a wife, mother, sister, aunt, and grandmother. She was a dedicated homemaker, a gracious host, and a fine cook. Most importantly, Catherine was a compassionate, non-judgmental woman, but not without a sharp wit and great sense of humor even during the last few months of her life. Her presence will be missed by her daughters: Catherine Rossiter-Flight (Harris), Isabel Oser (Jerry), Maureen, Paula, Mary-lou Rossiter (Bill Simpkins), and Mona Rossiter (Paul Rowe); granddaughters: Amy Flight and Allison Oser (Jared Rypkema); special nieces and nephews in Newfoundland, Anna Kelly (Mike), Sister Maureen O'Keefe, Margaret White, and Jack Dwyer (Eileen); sisters: Cecelia ("Dolly") Sparkes of Quebec and Doris Cobb, Lillian O'Neil (Kevin), and Isabel Morris of Ontario; sisters-in-law: Beatrice MacPherson of Massachusetts, Ruth Rossiter of St. John's and Jenny Dwyer of Cambridge, Ontario; brothers-in-law: Tom Rossiter and Lar Rossiter (Alice) of St. John's; a large circle of extended family in Newfoundland, Ontario and Quebec; long-time family friend Arlene Power of St. John's; and her close neighbours. Catherine was pre-deceased by her husband John, infant daughter Germaine, sisters Anne, Mary, Maude and brothers Peter, Vince, Frank and William.
As a mother, Catherine always had a ready supply of inspirational quotes, words of wisdom gathered from her reading. It is only fitting to conclude this tribute with a few words of encouragement that she herself might well have shared: "Be good to one another, celebrate your successes, remember to laugh well and often and always remember to remain hopeful in your life."
Cremation has taken place. The family will receive visitors at Carnell's Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Road, St. John's from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m to 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 10. Funeral service will take place at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, March 12, 2012 at the Carnell's Memorial Chapel. Flowers are welcome. A private family interment will take place at a later date where Catherine will be laid to rest alongside her husband on Bell Island.

Article From The Telegram on Dr. Rusted Published Monday, 19 March 2012
Prominent physician Dr. Nigel Rusted has died at age 104.
Rusted was invested as a member of the Order of Canada in January for his outstanding contribution to the province's medical profession.
He was well known for work in reconstructive surgery for cleft lip and palate, the only physician offering the surgery in this province for decades.
Rusted was born in Salvage, Bonavista Bay. He was a member of the inaugural class of Memorial University in 1925.
He earned his medical degree from Dalhousie University and was the first medical student to become health officer on the SS Kyle, travelling along the Labrador coast during the summers of 1930-31 treating over 3,000 patients.
Rusted was also the first medical officer aboard the MV Lady Anderson during 1935-36 - when the travelling medical clinic treated patients along Newfoundland's southwest coast.
Rusted opened a private practice clinic in St. John's in 1936 and was appointed junior surgeon at the General Hospital.
By 1966 he was senior consultant at all four hospitals in St. John's.
Rusted performed more than 9,000 surgeries during his career and, prior to Medicare, did more than 1,500 surgeries free of charge for people who could not afford to pay.
He retired from surgery in 1982 at age 75 and retired from clinical practice in 1987.
Among many accolades, Rusted was also presented with the honorary life membership award by the Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Association.
Even as he passed a century, Rusted remained actively interested in medicine and its history, writing and family roots.
It was not Rusted's intention as a young man to follow the medical path, he said in a 2007 interview.
"I was more interested in engineering first when I was here at (Bishop) Feild. I went to the Memorial College when it opened in 1925 and I said, 'Medicine,' just like that," Rusted said.
His philosophy on treating patients was to give everyone good care, even when they didn't have the money.
"My attitude always was patients first and the hell with anybody else. If you're going to treat them, treat them the same as you want to be treated yourself," Rusted said in the interview.
More on Nigel Rusted's life and career in The Telegram Tuesday.
2nd Story on Dr. Rusted Published Tuesday, 20 March 2012
Even in his 11th decade, and many years removed from clinical work, Dr. Nigel Rusted remained well-versed on medical matters, making for a unique doctor-patient relationship between himself and his family doctor.
"Just recently, about five months ago, I had a really unusual radiology report on an investigation I had done on this patient," said Dr. Robert Butler, who often discussed difficult cases in confidence with the 104-year-old retired-physician.
"I talked over the case with him, and I would say his commentary saved that patient's life. ... His diagnostic accuracy was absolutely amazing."
Rusted died Sunday at the Health Sciences Centre in St. John's following a three-week stay in hospital.
He was predeceased by his wife of 63 years, Florence, who died in 2007.
A member of both the Order of Canada and the Order of Newfoundland, Rusted was born in Salvage, Bonavista Bay, in 1907 and spent portions of his youth in Upper Island Cove and Carbonear.
He was a member of Memorial University's inaugural class in 1925 and later earned a medical degree from Dalhousie University. He spent time in the 1930s as a medical officer on the SS Kyle, travelling through coastal Labrador, and on the MV Lady Anderson along Newfoundland's southwest coast.
Rusted opened a private practice clinic in 1936 and went on to perform 9,000 operations before retiring from surgery in 1982. He was also appointed clinical professor of surgery at MUN in 1968.
He retired from his clinical practice in 1987. Rusted kept his records and updated them if he noticed obituaries for former patients.
His family doctor for the last 10 years, Butler considers Rusted a personal medical hero, adding it was humbling and a privilege to look after the health of such a smart man.
Remarkable intellect
"He had an intellect that was remarkable," said Butler, who enjoyed sharing in shop-talk with Rusted. "Even though he was out of practice for the last 26 years, he still read a lot and maintained his activities with the medical school."
MUN created the Dr. Nigel Rusted Lecture in Medical Humanities in his honour, and he mentored many medical school students over the years.
"He was an avid reader," said Joan Rusted, one of his three children. "He still read medical journals up until a few weeks ago. He just never stopped (learning), even at his age."
Having come from the pre-antibiotic era, Butler said Rusted practiced medicine in an age that required excellent technique and clean work from physicians.
"His work in the area of cleft palate (repairs) is very emotionally touching, because he gets letters even today, up to this past year, from patients he had worked on, thanking him for the major change he had made in their lives," said Butler.
According to a 2011 article from the Canadian Medical Association's Journal, Rusted was the first doctor in Newfoundland and Labrador to perform several operations, including cleft lip and cleft palate repair, partial gastrectomy, pedicle graft from abdomen to neck, and adrenalectomy.
"He commanded respect, but he also earned respect," said Butler.
Dr. James Rourke, dean of MUN's medical school, had many chats with Rusted in his home-based office.
"Dr. Rusted gave a lifetime of service to people in Newfoundland and Labrador," he said. "At his home, he showed me the many meticulous records he kept, and I feel very fortunate to have been able to visit him at his home."
Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Association past-president Dr. Patrick O'Shea said Rusted possessed a great sense of humour, and he was glad the NLMA was able to present him with an honorary life membership prior to his death.
"Much to our chagrin, we realized he had not been so honoured," said O'Shea. "He was a great person and very friendly with all doctors."
Joan Rusted said her father preferred to practice medicine with a personal touch.
"He was somebody who believed in putting the patient first," she said. "The patient was an individual, not just a case or a disease."
Rusted worked upwards of 80 to 100 hours in a given week, according to Butler. Joan Rusted said being a doctor often kept him away from home while his children grew up.
"He was a very hard worker, and his practice took up a lot of his time, but when he was home, he was a family person," she said.
Senior driver
He purchased cars from four generations of the Hickman family, according to Butler, and only stopped driving last year. However, Rusted maintained his driver's licence up until his death, passing his most recent medical clearance from Butler two months before his death.
His interest in staying up-to-date on the world extended to technology. Rusted owned an iPad, exchanged emails with family and friends and also engaged in online voice chats.
"Nigel Rusted never grew old," said Butler. "He had a young mind, he had a very curious mind, and he would always ask the question 'Why?' and then answer that with his own 'Why not?'"
His son Tom Rusted recalls a CT scan conducted on his father during his final weeks in hospital.
"(The doctor) commented he had the brain of a 40-year-old," said Tom Rusted, who had lived with his father for the past six months. "I'll miss eating together, his stories, and his humour. He was always pleased to see (his children) whenever we were around."
Nigel Rusted's other daughter, Elaine Hyde, spoke with him every day until his death.
"He was always pleased to see me coming. He'd tell me what his day was like up until that point, and I'd tell him what my day was like. He was great."
Butler estimates there is a surgical lifetime of work Rusted completed without pay.
"He has a filing cabinet that itemizes every operation he'd done in his lifetime," said Butler. "He was paid for only three-quarters of the work he'd done in his lifetime."
Rourke said treating people without receiving compensation was significant for Rusted, given universal health care did not exist for most if his medical career.
A funeral for Rusted will be held Thursday at the Anglican Cathedral in St. John's at 11 a.m. Family and friends can visit Carnell's Funeral Home today and Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
