CARRIGAN, Margaret Rose - November 16, 1946 - March 26, 2014 - Passed away peacefully in her sleep at home: beloved friend, great-aunt, aunt, sister, nanny, super-mom and cherished wife, Margaret Rose Carrigan (née Fowler). A woman of laughter, adventure, love, and a wily practitioner in the art of the infamous family wit, Marg leaves so many lives much richer for her joyful participation in them. Her absence leaves a void in all who knew her. She will be missed always and remembered forever with deep love. Margaret was pre-deceased by her mother (Sarah Fowler (née Byrne) of St. John's) and father (Joseph P. Fowler of Cupids and St. John's), and by her brother, Ron. Educated at Mercy Convent, Holy Heart of Mary and Memorial University, she taught at St. Bon's in the mid-1960s and spoke all her life with fond memories of "her boys" of her grade four homeroom. In 1968, Margaret Rose Fowler wed the love of her life, a young Cape Bretoner and then officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force named Victor Ronald Carrigan. Together, Marg and Ron set out on a journey that took them through military bases in several provinces before finding their way back to St. John's in 1974 with two young sons and a third on the way. Marg and Ron have lived happily in Topsail Pond since the early 1980s, during which time she completed yet another degree (Cartography) from Memorial and played a role on the leading edge of online communications between MCP and the offices of Newfoundland and Labrador physicians. After just 67 years, Marg leaves us too soon. It is hard, and we extend heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the many friends who have touched our family already with expressions of love and compassion. Only now can we get away with celebrating her life; she herself would have protested all the fuss and attention. That's who she was. Margaret Rose Carrigan will be missed by her life partner, soul mate, best friend and husband, Dr. Ron Carrigan; sons Russ (Sherry Reid) with grandchildren Michaela and Jack; Colin (Andrea Chafe) with grandchildren Bridget and Eamon; and Scott, along with father-in-law Victor Carrigan of Marion Bridge. Also with joyful and lasting memories are the extended Fowler clan: Frank (Patty), Cy (Donna), Dave (Anne Marie), Noel (Irina), Barb (Roger Greenwood), Blanche Fowler, Peggy Fowler, Mona Skinner, Flora Fowler, Shelagh Fowler and a great many nieces and nephews whom she loved very dearly. Margaret was a beautiful and inspirational lady. Unparalleled with her cod chowder, French onion soup and old-school casseroles, her many culinary talents live on through her three sons who learned literally at their mom's apron strings. Her grandkids will always know these favorites as Nanny's recipes. We are all blessed for having experienced life with her. In accordance with her wishes, Marg's remains have been cremated. Visitations are at Carnell's Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Road on Friday 7-9 and Saturday 2-4 and 7-9. A memorial service will be held in Carnell's Memorial chapel on Sunday at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory are gratefully accepted by the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador.

GEORGHIOU (Noulla, Noona), Damiani - It is with great sadness that we announce her passing on March 25, 2014 at Masonic Park Nursing Home surrounded by loved ones. Predeceased by her much loved husband Melis (Menelaos) in 1984. Leaving to mourn, her only son Paris (Janette) and two wonderful grandchildren Melissa (Dirk) and Andreas (Janice). Born and raised in Cairo, Egypt as part of a large Greek community, she married and moved to Johannesburg, South Africa with Melis and baby Paris in 1947. Paris immigrated to Canada in 1967 and as a result, Noulla and Melis left South Africa in 1970. After a few years in Cyprus, then in Greece, having been forced to flee to Greece after the Turkish invasion in 1974, they eventually moved to St John's in 1978 to join Paris and his new family. Like so many new immigrants to Canada, they started their own business, George's Store, a small convenience store at the corner of Pennywell Rd and Boncloddy St, a very colourful and vibrant neighbourhood where they were welcomed. Theirs was the first store in the City to regularly carry Greek feta, olives and other Greek delicacies. Closing the store in 1986, she began taking annual trips to Florida with the Happy Wanderers Group for a restorative holiday in the sun as many Newfoundlanders do. With the help of Drs. Bill Eaton, Isabel Martins and their team she lived life to the fullest and became a passionate and active volunteer at the Seniors Resource Centre and the Miller Centre. In September 2010, she came to live as a cared-for and loved resident at the Masonic Park Nursing Home. She thrived at Masonic where residents, their families and staff knew her affectionately as "Mama Noulla". We are grateful for the care she received both in her own home, and during her stay at Masonic. The recounted memories from friends here and around the world are dear to our hearts. Remembered as being larger than life, she displayed every feeling and emotion not just on her sleeve but way out in front of her for everyone to see. Noulla is missed. Cremation has taken place, interment at a later date. Visitation at Barrett's Funeral Home, 328 Hamilton Ave, on Friday 2-4 and 7-9 pm, Saturday 2-4. No flowers by request. Donations in her memory may be made to Masonic Park Nursing Home. Please visit www.barretts.ca to sign the memorial guest book.

Drinking from my Saucer
I've never made a fortune and it's probably too late now.
But I don't worry about that much, I'm happy anyhow.
And as I go along life's way,
I'm reaping better than I sowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'cause my cup has over flowed.
I haven't got a lot of riches, and
sometimes the going's tough.
But I've got loved ones around me, and that makes me rich enough.
I thank God for his blessings,
And the mercies He's bestowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'cause my cup has overflowed.
Excerpt from poem by John Paul Moore

Eli was born on January 6, 1925 in Hillview, NL to Richard and Elizabeth (Brinston) Loder. Eli's working years started when he left home at the young age of 14 to go to Labrador as cook's helper on Eli Drodge's fishing boat. Following employment with Cousin's Drycleaners, The White Clothing Company and at the Naval Base in Argentia, Eli returned to sea in 1947 when he began working with the NL Railway on the "Issac John Smith". For three years he sailed to the Caribbean carrying a cargo of salt fish and returning with a cargo of molasses and rum. His next seafaring job was on the CN coastal boats delivering cargo, passengers and mail to communities along the coast of NL. Before his retirement in 1982, Eli completed his long marine career working on various ships such as the "Ambrose Shea" and "Marine Atlantica" that provided ferry service from North Sydney, NS to Argentia or Port-Aux-Basques, NL. Eli and Flo resided in Clarenville, NL for 32 years of their married life where he was actively involved in the church, league bowling and darts. He gardened; camped, fished, berry picked and loved a good game of cards "120's". Eli and Flo moved to Riverview, NB in 2004 to be closer to Garry, Janice and Robert and his grandchildren. He continued bowling until sidelined by his second hip replacement and enjoyed playing cards with good friends, Max and Bessie. He also enjoyed sailing with Janice and Robert on their sailboat the "Panacea" in Shediac Bay. Eli was a kind, gentle and considerate soul; ever thankful, ever thoughtful - never one to complain. His infectious "little" smile will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

MURPHY, Elizabeth - Age 85 of Long Harbour - Mount Arlington Heights. Passed peacefully away at the Health Sciences Center on Sunday, March 2, 2014 surrounded by those she loved. Predeceased by her husband George, children Eric, John and Michael, brothers Mick (Helen), Cyril, Din (Liz), Andy and sister Mollie. Leaving to mourn her children Gordon (Sheila), Arnold (Anne), Andy (Margie), Gerry (Lorraine), Roy (Jeanie), Tony, Ted (Patrina), Ray, Alex (Tammy), Mary (Tom), Betty Anne (Mark), Georgina (Ladis) and Lori. 30 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, brother Jack (Gladys), Ned, sister in law Lorraine, a large circle of nieces, nephews and special friends also celebrate her life. Liz was born April 22, 1928 to Elizabeth (Bruce) & Andrew Burke. She had 6 brothers and one sister. After her only sister "Mollie" died when Liz was just 11, she was taken out of school to help out at home. Even though she left school at an early age, she was an avid reader and in her later years could always be found in the middle of a good book, that she just had to get to the end of. Her own mother was her greatest inspiration and best friend. She spoke fondly of her mom and the lessons learned from her even after more than 40 years. How she had patience for anything and only ever had a kind word to say. Liz married George February 5, 1948, she gave birth to 16 children and raised 14. She loved her children and never forgot the 2 she lost. She had 12 boys in a row and finally "#13 was lucky" it was her first girl, soon to be followed by 3 more girls. Liz could recall with vivid detail, for any of her children, the details of the day they were born, the weather, who took her to the hospital and who else was there at the same time. She had an amazing memory for dates and phone numbers and knew the birthdates and ages of not only her immediate family but of anyone even remotely connected to her. Liz sang in the church choir for many years. She sang songs for her kids and always hummed a tune as she went about her daily tasks of baking bread and preparing home cooked meals and could even be convinced, from time to time, to sing a tune at a get-together. Her grandchildren and great-children were her greatest joy and she had stories to share about all of them. She had a gift of making everyone of them feel special. In her later years, she never left home without her cell phone and she was very fond of her iPad, texting and Facebook because she was able to have regular updates on family regardless of how far away they were. In her own words, she was born too soon. She looked forward to her weekly Bingo game with her Bingo buddies and brought home a few jackpots in her time. Knitting was a passion for her during her entire life. She was responsible for the creation of thousands of baby outfits, sweaters, mittens and home knit socks during her lifetime which she happily gave as gifts to her large group of family and friends. She had the best sense of humor and never lost her love for a bit of fun. She loved to complete the Jumble in the Daily Telegram, read the obituaries, eat plain chips and didn't mind the odd drop of Apricot Brandy. Mom. Nanny. Great Nanna. Great NanNan, Granmudder, Aunt Liz. Liz. Beth and Mrs. Murphy. So many names for the same wonderful lady who has left her mark on anyone who was fortunate enough to know her. Visitation at St. Jerome's Church in Long Harbour; Tuesday 1-7 PM, Wednesday 1-8 PM (which will incorporate a liturgy service at 7PM.) Funeral Service at St. Jerome's Church in Long Harbour, Thursday, March 6, 2014 at 11:00 AM.

SKANES TEMPLEMAN, Donald or SKANES, Donald Templeman - Donald Templeman Skanes, 78, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 26, 2014, in Clearwater, Florida. Don was an independent spirit with strong faith and always lived his life to the fullest. He was born on December 7, 1935 on Bell Island, off the coast of St. John's Newfoundland. Don moved with his young family to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia in 1965 for work in the construction industry. This industry became his passion and he followed the opportunities to Scottsdale, Arizona in 1986. The boy from "the rock" made a home in the desert sun where he embraced new challenges in the construction industry building bridges, roads and new home construction. Don never shied away from a challenge and was most proud of his contribution to building a school in the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Don was driven, meticulous and managed to work without the use of modern technology. All he needed was his graph paper, ever-sharp pencil and his sharp mind to make it happen. Retirement was not part of Don's plan and he was still employed by Eddie Valdez, Native Nations Builders Inc. at the time of his death. During his years spent in Dartmouth, Don was a member of the Dartmouth Curling Club, Brightwood Golf & Country Club, the Austenville Owl's Club and worshipped at St. Luke's Anglican Church. Don was also a member of the Masonic Clift Lodge #10, Bell Island, Newfoundland. Don, like his mother May, enjoyed a lively game of 45's and had no trouble bidding 30 for 60 even if he didn't have "the five". He loved the adventures and shenanigans with his side-kicks who referred to themselves as "the boys of summer". The boys could always count on Don to provide some entertainment and he treasured their friendship. Don was predeceased by his wife of 40 years, Olive. Don is survived by his children, Donna Jones (David Bambury), Jennifer Gray (Jack Gray) and grandchildren Courtney Jones, Brett Jones and Jared Gray. Don will be missed by his companion and partner Alma Ottenheimer of St. John's, Newfoundland whose kind and gentle spirit was a welcome addition to the family. Also surviving is Don's sister, Shirley Formento (Atlanta, Georgia). Please join us in a celebration of Don's life to be held on Monday, April 7 at 11:00 am at Atlantic Funeral Home, 771 Main Street, Dartmouth with a reception to follow. Burial on Bell Island will follow at later date. In lieu of flowers, donations would be most appreciated in Don's memory to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, Atlantic Chapter, 5251 Duke Street, Halifax, Nova Scotia B3J 1P3 or online at cbcf.org/atlantic/
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He re-storeth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou prepares a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (Psalm XXIII).

Feel no guilt in laughter, he'd know how much you care. Feel no sorrow in a smile that he is not here to share. You cannot grieve forever; he would not want you to. He'd hope that you could carry on the way you always do. So, talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared, the days you spent together, all the happiness you shared. Let memories surround you, a word someone may say will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day, that brings him back as clearly as though he were still here, and fills you with the feeling that he is always near. For if you keep those moments, you will never be apart, and he will live forever locked safely within your heart.
