BOLAND, Charlotte Eliza - 1914-2012- On September 5, 2012 surrounded by her adoring family, she gracefully passed from this world. A peaceful ending to a beautiful life. She was 98 years old. She was met by loved ones who had gone ahead: her beloved husband of 67 years, Garfield Boland, her children Cecil Boland and Mary Winter, daughter-inlaw Shirley Boland (nee Perry), son-in-law Bill Philpott, her parents John Ward and Ella Goulding. She was the last surviving child of their family.
She truly treasured her memories of raising her family on Pinchard's Island and in Pound Cove. The family later moved to St. John's and her children now grown but stories from then always brought a smile to her face. A devoted wife, loving Mother, caring Grandmother, sister, aunt or friend; she was affectionately known to all as Nan. She loved to cook and loved a crowd and no one stayed a stranger very long. She was famous for her homemade bread, cold plates, and partridgeberry pastry. Her hand knit socks and mitts warmed the hearts and hands of many. She loved children and was proud to be blessed with such a large family. Her love will remain with us forever. Always loved and remembered by daughters Jessie (Eric Stockley), Laura (Horwood Howell), Idella, sons George (Effie Petten), John (Doreen), Len (Theresa), Lloyd (Beverly), daughter-in-law Vera Bennett and son-in-law Herman Winter. Nan or "Nanny Bo" will always be cherished by 33 grandchildren, 47 great-grandchildren and 24 great-great-grandchildren. Sadly missed by the Skiffington family, many nieces and nephews, and a large circle of friends many she met at Wesley United Church.
The family extends sincere gratitude to the staff of West 1, Hoyles Home. Your compassion, care, and kindness has touched our hearts. We could clearly see from her wink, nod, and the smile on her face that you did a wonderful job of keeping her spirit alive. She was content and always looking for a lark. Thank you. Resting at Barrett's Funeral Home, 328 Hamilton Avenue. Visitation Thursday 7-9 p.m, Friday 2-4 p.m, and 7-9 p.m, Service from Barrett's Chapel 11 a.m on Saturday with interment at Mount Pleasant Cemetery. Charlotte Boland dearly loved flowers so flowers are gratefully accepted and appreciated or donations may be made to your charity of choice in her memory.
"It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. For part of us went with you on the day God called you home. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace. "You can shed tears that she is gone or you can smile because she has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all she's left. Your heart can be empty because you can't see her or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember her and only that she's gone or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what she'd want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on"

MEYER, (Halpert) Sophia Maria - January 7, 1964 - September 30, 2012. Died peacefully at home, surrounded by her loved ones. Sophia embraced life with energy and enthusiasm. Blessed with keen intelligence, immense curiosity, and prodigious talent, she was a multi-faceted artist and individual who continued to create works of beauty and humor up until the last few days of her existence.
Perhaps best known for the technical excellence and pleasing shapes of the pottery she produced in her studio on Bell Island, her whimsical sculptures and colorful hand painted silk scarves were also popular. She drew, painted, took countless photographs, and wrote poetry. Inspired by the natural world, she was happiest when hiking with the dog(s) in the woods or along the coastline, searching for edible mushrooms in season, or swimming in the ponds.
A voracious reader and a vigorous researcher, she acquired a considerable depth of knowledge in a broad range of subjects. An avid gardener, she became an expert in certain plant varieties. An animal lover, she studied their husbandry. Among other things, she was a trained chef, a computer nerd, and a bookbinder.
Sophia also believed in community service and volunteered variously as a Girl Guide leader, chairperson of the local school board, chairperson of the Bell Island Community Library, and was an active member on the board of The Bell Island Heritage Society and Community Museum.
She leaves three lovely and talented daughters (of whom she was justly proud)-- Maggie, Jessie, and Sara. A brother, Max, and a circle of friends that is international in scope. Her spirit lives on, and continues to inspire her adoring husband, Nicholas Halpert. A gathering to celebrate Sophia's life will be held Sunday, October 7, at our home in St. John's -- 26 Roche Street, from 2 p.m.

"God's garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain, He knew that you would never get well on earth again. He saw the road we getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb, So He closed your weary eyelids, and whispered "Peace be thine."
It broke our hearts to lose you. But you didn't go alone, for part of us went with you, The day God called you home.
