Left with fond and loving memories are son James (Joann), stepdaughter Sheila (Walter), grandchildren Janet, Ian and Michael and great-grandchild Gavin. Predeceased by her parents, Gladys and Victor Vale, sisters Dora and Ruth and husband Melville Coxon, she will be fondly remembered by sister-in-law Mary as well as cousins, nieces, nephews and friends throughout Canada and Great Britain. The Depression, World War 2 and subsequent British austerity shaped her early years. Desiring change, this articulate and reserved lady came to Newfoundland as a nurse and midwife in April 1956. Leaving the spring greenery of England to come via sea to Newfoundland in April caused her great homesickness, but she often commented on her amazement with the countryside's' complete transformation from brown to green by June. Even after 60 years in her adopted home, Newfoundland, her heart truly remained in England. Actively involved with many organizations in the 60's and 70's she was a staunch advocate for education and learning. She was, to the end, a passionate gardener, birder, reader, lover of classical music, broad conversation and laughter and thoroughly enjoyed the people populating this grand place. She was a distinctly unique person and will be sorely missed by all whom she touched. She loved life. To quote one of her favourite poets, William Wordsworth; "The music in my heart I bore long after it was heard no more." Our family sends a special thank you to the doctors and nurses at James Paton Memorial Hospital Emergency Department and medical wards. Your professionalism and compassion is greatly appreciated. To Dr. Krista Blundell, a singular thank you for your help and concern. Thanks to the staff and management of Golden Years Estate for their diligence and kindness.

He will be deeply missed by his loving family: daughters, Jane Van Vlack (Stephen Hatfield) and Judy Bradley (Larry), grandsons Jonathan Edge, Brian Edge, Donald Bradley (Erica Robbins), Paul Bradley (Hilary Burns) and granddaughter Christine Hatfield (Dan Ethier) and great-granddaughter Michelle Ethier. Paul joined the Bank of Nova Scotia at age 16 in Newcastle, NB, and was a Senior Executive (General Manager of Eastern Ontario) when he retired after a fulfilling career of 30 years. While Manager of Ottawa's Main Branch and subsequently through his work as a consultant, Paul loved interacting with politicians and diplomats, both on a business level and socially with his wife, Marjorie. Paul had a wonderful sense of humour and positive outlook on life that shone through most everything he did. Paul remained active his whole life. He enjoyed golfing, swimming and following sports (especially cheering on the Blue Jays and Senators). Throughout his life, he volunteered for charities and for his community, recently serving as Treasurer for the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation. Paul stayed well-informed about Canadian politics and worldwide current events, and used computer technology daily to keep up-to-date. He and Trudy travelled extensively and always revelled in the wonderful experiences they shared and people they met abroad. Paul had an enviable memory and could replay with great detail and appropriate embellishment his life's adventures. He took a genuine interest in people, nurturing and maintaining a great number of relationships and touching many lives. The people who were so special in Paul's life are too numerous to mention. Paul's family is eternally grateful for your friendship to him. In his memoirs, Paul wrote: "I have truly been blessed with a wonderful life!" Family (including pets) was always most important to Paul. Being a grandfather especially gave him great joy. He was a wonderful support and inspiration to each of his grandsons who have all inherited much of their "Dadda's" charisma. He will definitely live on through them. At Paul's request there will be no public service. A private burial will take place at a future date in Picton, beside his beloved Marjorie and Trudy. Donations to the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation in his memory would be welcomed.
