DEATHS

LEITCH, Albert
Passed peacefully away, on Monday, October 14, 2002 at home with his family in St. Albert, Alberta. Albert was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, son and brother. In his 86 years he fought wars, raised a family, contributed to the betterment of his community and outlived both of his heart surgeons. One of life's jokes he appreciated. He is joining his wife Bea (Bridget) in Heaven, and will be greatly missed by his daughters and their husbands: Betty and Len Saxon (Portage La Prairie, Man.), Barbara and Leo Whelan (St. John's, NF), Brenda and Gordon Noseworthy (Winnipeg, Man.), Maria Leitch (Winnipeg) and his sons and their wives: Robert and Daphney (Howard) Leitch (St. Albert, Al.) and John and Paula (Stephenson) Leitch at Pembroke, ON. Dad served in the 166 Newfoundland Regiment during the War in the Italian and African campaigns. His experiences during the war and the lasting comradeship formed there, with the members of the 166, profoundly shaped his world view. He was a man of peace and lived a life of gentleness and honor. Dad was a Fourth Degree in the Knights of Columbus and served his church and his Lord in a faithful prayer life. He taught us our faith by example. He was a man of quiet unquestioned faith. Dad lived his life with humor, optimism, honesty, gentleness, kindness and forgiveness. His legacy is a family which shares these values. His faith in God, respect and dignity for others, hard work, and (god forbid) his humor are woven into who his children and grandchildren are today and what we will become. Thanks dad. Mass of Christian Burial will take place Thursday, October 17, 2002 in St. Albert, Alberta.

ALCOCK, Harry Stuart
1914 - 2002
Calgary, Alberta

After a wonderful life of 88 years, Harry Stuart Alcock slipped away on October 10th from complications due to pneumonia to be reunited with his beloved Daphne. Born May 2nd, 1914 in St. John's, Newfoundland he spent the early years of his life first in St. John's and then Corner Brook. His formal education took place at the Prince of Wales College where he majored in Commerce and Finance. While in college he starred in hockey, soccer and was a member of the Guards Championship Soccer team. As a young CGS he was employed by the Corner Brook West Town Council as Financial Clerk and later became Manager of Water and Sewerage Town Planning. Later he combined his sports and finance abilities to be instrumental in the creation of Humber Gardens Arena in Corner Brook and as well was manager of the city's all star hockey teams. A serendipitous meeting during his college days led to the love of his life, Daphne (nee Snelgrove of Catalina) married Harry August 5, 1940. Their union produced 3 fine sons: Gary, Graham and Bryan. In 1957, they left the island for Toronto to begin new chapters. There Harry worked with the Scarborough Public Utilities as Chief Accountant until his retirement in 1978. He and Daphne then retired to Fort Lauderdale to live the life of snowbirds. Sadly, in 1993 Harry lost his soul mate and best friend, Daphne, after 54 glorious years of marriage. Then, the tragic loss of Graham two years later who "slipped the surly bonds of earth to dance the skies on laughter silvered wings" began to take its toll and his health declined. So in 1999, he moved to Calgary to be closer to family. Harry touched many people in his 88 years. His memory will live on in friends and family. "Pops" is loved and missed especially by grandchildren: David and Jazz (Bryan and Jane) of Calgary, Alberta; Jenny, Sarah and Jay (Graham and Gail) of Phoenix, Arizona; and Kathy of Toronto (Rev. Gary and Harriet of Nova Scotia). Even though the pain is heavy for us now we take comfort in knowing that "this too shall pass". A private Memorial Service took place Friday, October 18, 2002 in Calgary. Memorial Services will take place again in June 2003 in St. John's and Corner Brook, Newfoundland (interment). If desired, donations may be made to a charity of your choice.

City woman could be oldest in province, to celebrate 109th birthday Sunday
by Terry Roberts

Family and friends of Bertha Clarke would like to be able to definitively say they're celebrating with the oldest person in Newfoundland and Labrador, perhaps even Canada, when they gather Sunday at the Inter-faith Home for Senior Citizens for her 109th birthday.
But, with Statistics Canada unwilling to help them verify the point, they'll have to be satisfied with the privilege of marking another milestone with "one" of the world's oldest persons.
"We've been trying our best to find out, but vital statistics in Newfoundland and Ottawa won't tell us because they feel the information is confidential," said Sherry Holwell, Mrs. Clarke's great-niece.
In an effort to find out if Bertha is the province's oldest resident, family members put the word out on VOCM Open Line with Bill Rowe. While there are a handful of Newfoundlanders over 100, there have been no reports of anyone older than Mrs. Clarke.
Regardless, it's safe to say there are few people in the world living at that grand old age.
In March, a woman from Michigan thought to be the oldest in the world died at age 115.
The very same day, a 111-year-old woman from New Brunswick, Evangeline Saulnier, also passed away. It was thought she was the oldest person in Canada before her death.
It's now believed that 114-year-old Kamato Hongo of Japan is the oldest living person.
"We think she (Bertha) may be the oldest person in Canada, but we can't say for sure," said Holwell, who visited with Mrs. Clarke Friday at the Inter-faith Home for Seniors Citizens in Corner Brook.
Mrs. Clarke was born on Oct. 20, 1893 to William and Sarah Caravan of Lushes Bight, Notre Dame Bay. She married Hubert Clarke and they had one son, the late Herb Clarke. Herb and his wife, Margaret, have 10 children.
Mrs. Clarke lived on her own until she was 88. She loved to knit, crochet and sew. A devout member of the Salvation Army, she still flashes a brilliant glow every time she sees someone in uniform, said Holwell.
"She's not in great health and she rarely talks, but she grins from ear to ear," she said.
(The article is accompanied by a lovely picture of Mrs. Clarke.) Caption under the photo reads: Bertha Clarke is celebrating her 109th birthday on Sunday. Mrs. Clarke was born Oct. 20, 1893, to Sarah and William Caravan from Lushes Bight. She married Herbert Clarke and they had one son, Herbert. Mrs. Clarke resides at the Inter-faith Home on Churchill Crescent in Corner Brook. There will be a birthday celebration on Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Inter-faith Home. Family and friends are welcomed to drop by. Greetings come from her grandchildren - Mack, Richard, Joy, June, Susan, Bill, Bob, John, Ralph; her niece, Linda, and Herbert Vincent; great nieces, Sherry Holwell and family, Elaine Vincent and family, Wanda Buckle and family and great nephew Ron Vincent and family.
