As a friend, she was an "Earth Angel", always there to listen and encourage, standing by to help you grow, providing love, strength and support.

to feel blessed for having known her. Although your parting has saddened us, we share in your happy reunion with Mama and Papa and your brothers.

This obituary was in today's Halifax Herald for Adeline, wife of my uncle, Wilfred Anthony 'Ginger' Fougère.  I have several photos of Adeline on Mary and Henry Fougère's River Bourgeois website: http://www.angelfire.com/folk/henrymaryfolks/
Adeline was a lovely lady.  After raising their many children, she and Uncle Ginger moved from Halifax to River Bourgeois where Ginger spent his final years.  Following that time, Adeline returned to Halifax and she maintained a very active lifestyle, including travel adventures. She had a very short time of known illness -- just a few weeks.
If anyone has the family line of Pacian and Angeline (Bouchard) Burke, parents of Adeline, I would appreciate hearing  from you.

FORGERON, Donald Anthony - 64, Musquodoboit Harbour (formerly of Halifax). It is with sorrow and heavy hearts that we share with you the passing of Donald after a courageous battle with leukemia. He was surrounded by his loving family and peacefully left this world and walked home holding God's hand. He was a devoted husband, loving father, and a loving Papa to his grandchildren. Donald was born in Halifax on March 2, 1942, a son of Anthony "Tony" Forgeron and Mary Irene Forgeron. The most important thing in Donald's life was his love and devotion to his family. He had a distinct smile and twinkle in his eye which was evident to all who met him and it is humbling to see all the lives that Donald touched in so many ways. Donald was predeceased by his brother, Joseph "Sonny", who is with his beloved brother once again. Donald is survived by his soul mate and faithful wife of 43 years, Carol Ann (Laphen); his beloved daughters, Shannon (Howie) English, Renee (Hans) Webber. He was the cherished Papa to grandchildren, Haley, Anthony, Shane and Foster; dear brother to Shirley (Vern) Trottier and Robert (Kay); much-loved uncle to Stephanie, Jeff, Michelle, Andrea, Jayme and Roxanna. Donald was a "jack-of-all-trades" and could put his hand to anything from cooking to woodworking. He started working for Nova Scotia Power in 1961. He worked as a meter reader until 1970 then as a meter installer to his retirement in 1993. Donald was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting, fishing and spending time at his "Camp" in Goshen, Guysborough Co. There are countless family members and friends who shared many special and happy memories of times spent outdoors with him. Donald was also an animal lover who loved and enjoyed the company of many faithful canine companions. As a family we spent many happy times at the Cottage in East Petpeswick, family vacations in West Arichat (Cape Breton) and of course Sunday supper with "Big Don's" cooking. His great strength, faith and spirit never faltered through his seven month fight with leukemia and he never lost hope. He was so thankful to the nurses and doctors who looked after him in Palliative Care at Twin Oaks Memorial Hospital. Donnie and Carol Ann spent their retirement years together at their oceanfront home and enjoyed many happy times there with family and friends. Cremation has taken place and visitation will be in Atlantic Funeral Home, Bayers Road, Halifax, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, November 29.
