BEST, June - At the grand age of 92, June Best passed away peacefully on March 14th., 2013. June's life was rich with learning - as a teacher in Quebec and as a student. Always eager to keep her mind active, she mastered rock work, weaving, gardening, Chinese brush painting and writing just to name a few of her many skills. Following a visit to Chios in her 70's, she even learned how to read and write Greek! With her quick and agile mind, there was nothing June couldn't master once she put her mind to it. June was adept at re-inventing herself each time a challenge came her way, always finding a way to move on and learn from experience. Predeceased by husbands Sam and Eric, brother John and sister Adrienne. Greatly appreciated, loved and remembered by niece Jane (Michael), nephew John and great-nephew Jake. Although she travelled extensively throughout her life, including a stint as a wireless operator in Labrador in WW2, June's heart was always in Newfoundland and it was here she returned (as she put it) to "retire". Thanks to the friendship and care of her Newfoundland family Eileen, Gerald, Glenys, Myrt, and Joan, June loved every minute of her retirement years. Special thanks to the truly kind and caring staff at Tiffany Village Retirement Residence. And then there's Anne Marie. "She lights up the room" was how June described Anne Marie and there are no better words. June's unique spirit, energy and intelligence will be sorely missed. In accordance with June's wishes, her ashes will be buried next to her husband Eric in Grange Over Sands, England.

"An Angel among us
We all felt your touch
An Angel among us
We loved you so much
A Gardening Spirit
Such a beautiful sight
Your seeds planted with love
With blossoms so bright
A Culinary Spirit
The kitchen your domain
Queen of the recipe
Great food was your reign
A Creative Spirit
Your hands were so gifted
Your creations were perfection
With many hearts lifted
An Adventurous Spirit
Road trips made with glee
You found treasures of delight
In every nook and cranny
A Fun-Loving Spirit
Joy and laughter were free
In the gatherings of family
At each celebration and party
A Genuine Spirit
Truth be told
You were "Salt of the Earth"
Your trust not sold
An Angel now in Heaven
Your heart at peace
In the arms of loving parents

"God Took Her To His Loving Home
God saw her getting tired,
a cure was not to be.
He wrapped her in his loving arms
and whispered 'Come with me.'
She suffered much in silence,
her spirit did not bend.
She faced her pain with courage,
until the very end.
She tried so hard to stay with us
but her fight was not in vain,
God took her to His loving home
and freed her from the pain."

LAM, Swe Yen - Swe Yen Lam passed away suddenly in Koh Samui, Thailand on March 30, 2013 at the tender of age 34 years.
Swe Yen is lovingly remembered by her fiancé, Mark Wade, Dad, Leong, bonus mom, Glendene, Mother, Valerie, step father, Ricardo, sisters, Swe Tjin and husband Matthew, Swe Liang, brothers Kin Leong and Joshua, niece Madeleine, as well as many exceedingly special family and extended family members who meant a great deal to her.
Swe Yen was born in Birmingham, England on January 15, 1979 and immigrated to Newfoundland in 1989. Swe Yen greatly valued education and graduated from Memorial University of Newfoundland, not once, but twice with a Bachelor of Biochemistry in 2001 and Bachelor of Nursing in 2007.
Swe Yen taught ESL in Korea from 2002-2004. For the past six years, Swe Yen travel nursed in various locales, almost always with Mark. From Yellowknife, NWT, High Level and Fort Vermillion, Alberta, Toronto, Ontario and Vancouver, British Columbia with many stops in between. Colleagues of Swe Yen describe her as an incredibly bright, beautiful, caring and giving nurse who positively impacted every person she met. This is evidenced by the dedication of a new trauma room at St. Theresa's General Hospital in Fort Vermillion in her honour.
Swe Yen loved life, squeezing everything she could out of it. She travelled extensively, worked hard, played hard, loved her family and deeply loved Mark. We will miss so many things - her eyes that offered a glimpse in to her beautiful soul, her laugh that filled a room, her smile that lit up our world, her crazy British/Newfoundland accent. The very essence of Swe Yen was love, and her love we will carry with us until we meet again.
Memorial services have been held in Koh Samui Thailand on April 3, 2013, at The Portside Pub in Vancouver, British Columbia on April 13, 2013, at Barrett's Funeral Home in St. John's, Newfoundland on April 21, 2013 and at St. Theresa's General Hospital in Fort Vermillion, Alberta on April 24, 2013.

MAGUIRE, Michael Joseph - 1927 - 2013 - Michael Joseph Flannan Mary Patrick Maguire. Passed away peacefully in the presence of his loving family on Tuesday, 5th March, 2013, aged 85. Predeceased by his son Patrick (Anna-Marie). Leaving to mourn, his one true love and wife of 57 years Oula; brothers: Connor and Peter; sisters: Mary-Clare and Anne-Marie; five sons: Conor (Carolyn), Mark (Caroline), Michael (Stella), Hugh (Diana) and Brendan (Laura-Lee); grandchildren: Colleen (Shane Antle), Meighan, Duncan, Caitlin, Sean, Michael, Niamh, Mary, Deirdre, Clare, Ciara, Maura, Brendan, Colleen, Oula, Sarah and Josie; great-grandson Conor Anthony; and a wide circle of dear friends on 5 continents.
Dr. Michael Maguire - dental surgeon, musician, artist, maker and teller of stories, and international busker - was born in Kilkieran, Connemara, Ireland, the eldest of 5 children born to Dr. Conor and Nellie (Conroy) Maguire. He lived in the Irish language for his first 9 years and was forever grateful for the classic education he received from the Jesuit Priests of Mungret College, Limerick. Mike studied Dentistry at University College Dublin, where he participated on several varsity sports teams, primarily rugby and boxing. After receiving his degree in Dentistry he set off for Canada and drove a Model T Ford from British Columbia to the Atlantic doing locums along the way. He even had a short stint with the Saskatchewan Roughriders! Having seen the majesty of Canada, it was Newfoundland that won his heart and soul. He landed in the cottage hospital in Twillingate where he mentored under Dr. John Olds and developed a deep affection for the people of this "marvelous terrible place".
Mick started his life-long love affair with Oula in 1954 and settled initially in Gander, where four of their six boys were born. Many people he treated, from all around the circle, still fondly remember his sincere interest in people and the land, and his professional kindness. Dentistry and the barter system collaborated perfectly in an endless stream of delightful encounters. Fillings for fish, rabbit or turrs were the order of the day! Countless stories and wonderful memories abound from that era.
Following a brief return to Ireland (where a fifth son arrived), and London where he trained in maxillofacial surgery, Mike and Oula returned to Grand Falls in 1965 where the family was made complete by the arrival of son number six.
In 1975 Mike relocated to St. John's so that he and Oula could remain close to their sons as they pursued their post-secondary education. He supported many causes with generous time and energy, notably as Board Chair of the Canadian Paraplegic Association. He was also a life-long supporter of Newfoundland Rugby. Mike bathed in the cultural richness of Newfoundland, and its people, which he celebrated through his love of music whether playing the accordion, piano or fiddle, and his growth as a painter of Irish and Newfoundland scenery and folk history. He had a tremendous ability to appreciate and capture the beauty around him, and he will be lovingly remembered by all whose lives he touched through his music and art, his storytelling, and gregarious wit. Above all, he loved his family and his faith, and his devotion was evident to all who met him. "Grandad" is still The Boss - "Big Mike" - and he is not gone from us, but before us.
Visitation will be held at Caul's Funeral Home, 84 LeMarchant Rd., St. John's, on Thursday, 7 March from 7 to 9 PM, and on Friday, 8 March from 2 to 4 PM and 7 to 9 PM. Funeral Mass will be held at St. Pius X church at 9:30 AM, Saturday, 9 March. Burial will follow at a later date at Cull's Harbour, Bonavista Bay. In lieu of Flowers, donations will be graciously accepted in Mick's memory to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish, Cull's Harbour, c/o PO Box 59, 139 J. R. Smallwood Blvd, Gambo, NL, A0G 2E0
The Maguire Family expresses a big thank you to the medical and nursing staff at the Health Sciences Centre ER and 4NB, for your professional and kind care. We also wish to thank Christine Arnold of Cull's Harbour and the caregivers at Tiffany Village for all their warmth and kindness during the past months.

O'BRIEN, Paul Joseph - Eng. of Buchans - Son of John O'Brien (1913 - 1985) and Blanche (MacDonald) O'Brien (1922 - 1999) passed away on Monday, March 25 2013 at the Health Sciences Centre in St. John's. Born June 28th, 1949 in Buchans, Paul is survived by his wife Helen (Collins) O'Brien; sons: Liam (Erin) and Michael (Jessica) O'Brien; daughter Margaret (Meg) (Paul) O'Brien; brothers: George (Louise), Gerry (Betsy); and John O'Brien; sister Denise O'Brien; sisters-in-law: Regina (Bill) Bailey, Mary (Gary) Erickson, Elizabeth (Peter) Nowlan; predeceased by brother-in-law Michael (Phyllis) Collins. From 1972 to 1984, Paul served as a key part of the engineering department at Asarco's Buchans unit with responsibilities in mine planning, safety and environmental remediation (recognized for his work in the area of base metals tailings re-vegetation). He served as the last Mine Superintendent for Asarco's Buchans mining operations from 1982 until the end of 1984. In 1985, Paul founded Buchans Enterprises and had served as its owner and manager since that time. In addition to many notable consultancy, construction and remediation projects undertaken all over Newfoundland and Labrador, particularly as relate to mining, he was responsible for spearheading and developing the Barite mining project at Buchans. His expertise on Buchans mines and ore bodies; as well as his knowledge of the Tulks Hill deposit has been drawn upon by most major mineral companies working in the Red Indian Lake watershed area over the past three decades. As Buchans faced its most turbulent and difficult years in the aftermath of Asarco closure. Paul chose to stay and build a successful company. He believed in Buchans. He had a work ethic matched only by his generosity, sense of humour and keen technical mind. James A Michener once said: Scientists dream about doing things, engineers do them. Paul did so much in the course of his life as an engineer, as a businessman, as a friend, and most importantly as a loving husband, father, and brother. Unmatched as a husband and father, and missed in ways that words completely fail to describe, he inspires in his family not only the strongest and deepest love, but also the fiercest and most unwavering pride. Thank you to the staff and doctors at a.m. Guy Memorial Health Care Centre in Buchans, the Central Newfoundland Regional Health Care Centre (in particular Anne Rowsell and the Dialysis Unit) in Grand Falls-Windsor as well as the nursing staff and doctors of the Coronary Care Unit of the Health Sciences Centre in St. John's.

O'ROURKE, David John - David John O'Rourke, or Dave as everybody knew him, passed away peacefully after struggling with Cancer and Heart Disease. He was the hardest worker I know, and worked until his boss made him go home because he was too sick. He was optimistic about getting through his recent diagnosis with Lung cancer and emphysema, and never gave up. On Friday, March 01, 2013, at 1:55 p.m. he passed away peacefully in the care of his son Shannon; daughter Serena; and his nephew Danny (who he thought of as a son). He was a dedicated worker and had a kind and jolly heart. He was always ready to have a good time, but he was also a good person to talk with if you had any problems. He loved everybody, well most everybody, and most everybody loved him. He was looking forward to retirement at 65, but I don't think that would have suited him, because he loved to contribute and be around people. He is predeceased by his parents: Patrick and Marguerita O'Rourke; and by six of his siblings. He is survived by his children and their spouses: Jeff and Leanne O'Rourke, DJ and Hannah O'Rourke, Tyler and Melissa O'Rourke, Rubyanne O'Rourke and Kyle, and Shannon and Serena O'Rourke. His grandchildren: Keegan (8), Kayleigh (7), Jayden (6), Zoe (3), and Jacob (1). And his large circle of extended family and friends. Many thanks to everybody that came to see him, and to those who called. This always lighted his spirits, because he loved to talk and hated to be in the hospital. A special thanks to Danny O'Rourke Jr., who came to see him most days and always brought him his Tim's coffee with three sugar. Also, a thanks to Dr. Eaton and his team at the Dr. L.A. Miller Centre. Visitation on Tuesday, March 5, from 6 - 9 p.m. and Wednesday, March 6, from 2 - 9 p.m. at Barrett's Funeral Home, 328 Hamilton Ave., in St. John's, with cremation to follow. Donations in his memory may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Please sign the online memorial guest book and leave a story you loved about him, at www.barretts.ca

He was born in Flatrock in 1930 and lived his entire life in the community. In his younger days he, like most young men in Flatrock took to the sea. He fished out of Flatrock for a number of years including participation in the annual seal hunt from the age of 18. It was also during these early years that we witnessed an act of great heroism from Kevin and some of his fellow fisherman. They saved the life of a downed American airman who crashed off Flatrock while returning to his aircraft carrier. In 1953 Kevin and Mabel married and thus began a journey that lasted for 58 years until Mabel's passing in 2012. For many of those years Mabel served as the Community Health nurse for the area. During the 1950's he served as a member of the Newfoundland Constabulary. He later went on to serve as a federal firefighter in Pleasantville and was among the last to serve on the St John's harbour fire tug. Through his years in public service Kevin did not lose touch with the fishery which was so much a part of his Heritage. In the 1970's Kevin formed Flatrock Trucking. Through this company as a businessman he continued to serve the fisherman of the entire area. He made sure that the fish got to market and that the fisherman received a fair price for their catch. His commitment to Flatrock also extended to the individuals and families who lived in our area. When tragedy struck two families in our area through house fires he created both the Scott Disaster Fund and the Bradbury Disaster Fund. He personally approached many businesses throughout Newfoundland to support the effort. For 20 Years he served as a member of the St John's Roman Catholic School Board. He was instrumental in having new schools built in the area. Kevin and Mabel were deeply religious which was demonstrated in the way they lived their lives and the many acts of compassion towards others. One of their most proud moments came in 1984 when Kevin, as the Mayor of Flatrock, together with Mabel had the honour to welcome Pope John Paul to Flatrock for the blessing of the fishing fleet and a prayer service at the Flatrock Grotto - an event that had a profound effect on the many people who attended and the millions who witnessed it on national TV. Dad is predeceased by his beloved wife Mabel and by his adored parents: James and Agnes; sister Kathleen Barnes; and his big brother Ron (Kay Whitty). Loving father to Kathleen, Kevin Jr. (Veronica), Chris (Kathleen), Carl (Donnie) and Robert (Catherine). Cherished grandfather to Joanne, Jennifer, Jimmy, Dale, Leon, Justin, Michael, Nicole, David, Maggie and Kealan; great-grandchildren: Hanna, Jaxson, Kiana and Rylan. Also his nephews: Joe Barnes, Ron Parsons, John Parsons and nieces: Mary Weisman and Rosemary Gosse and sisters-in-law: Catherine Penton, Josephine and her husband Charlie. Special Mention to Patsy Parsons and Jimmy Everson, two very special people in his life, whom he considered a part of his family. Special thanks to all his visitors who shared their time and conversation with him over the last few years. He also leaves behind his very special friends at Spread Eagle where they spent many summers and many great memories. The family wishes to extend our deepest gratitude to the staff of Chancellor Park and the staff of the 4 North HS who cared for Kevin with love and compassion. Resting at Caul's Funeral Home, TORBAY.

"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 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 that 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 part of the Master's plan…
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick at heart,
Go to the friends we know,
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds…
Miss me - but let me go."
- Harvey loved life and he lived every moment with humor and courage.
