Man's death suspicious, C.B. police say
Louisdale single father found in woods with clothes 'frozen on him'
By Davene Jeffrey / Staff Reporter

A 23-year-old Richmond County man died in hospital Wednesday after he was found nearly frozen in woods. Arichat RCMP say they are treating the death as suspicious and are not releasing the Louisdale man's name until all family members have been notified. Community members, however, identified the man as Cory Short, the single father of a young daughter.
Mr. Short was found at about 5 a.m. in woods off Balmoral Road, which runs between Grand Anse and Dundee.
"He was in bad condition. He'd been in the water," said Wilbert Urquhart, a volunteer firefighter. "It was a cold night. His clothes were frozen on him. He was living, but we couldn't resuscitate him," Mr. Urquhart said. The Transportation Department maintains several kilometres of the dirt road, but the rest is very rough. Mr. Urquhart believes that after Mr. Short's vehicle got stuck in mud, he tried to walk out and got turned around in the woods. "He was a little ways off of the road and he got in a brook, and that's how he got wet," Mr. Urquhart said. "We had to search for him."
Investigating officer Cpl. John Warr of the Arichat RCMP said officers are interviewing people to try to determine how Mr. Short came to be on the road that night. An autopsy was performed Wednesday. A preliminary report should be available
today, but the corporal said he will not release any information until the final report is completed, in the next week or two.
A woman, who asked that her name not be used but knew Mr. Short from Polegato Trucking where he worked as a backhoe operator, said Mr. Short had recently returned to Louisdale after spending a few months in Ontario. "He was really quiet. You'd have to get your hearing aid to hear him talk," the woman said. An employee of Cottage Bakery and Tea Room, which is next door to Polegato Trucking, said Mr. Short was a regular customer.

C.B. cops getting 'clearer picture' of man's death

Police are still investigating the death of a Louisdale man whose body was found Wednesday in a wooded area of Richmond County. "We're examining all the circumstances that might have led him to being on that road at that time," Cpl. John Warr of Arichat RCMP said Thursday. Local people identified the victim as Cory Short, 23. He apparently had a young daughter.
Mr. Short was found nearly frozen at about 5 a.m. Wednesday off Balmoral Road, between Grand Anse and Dundee. He died shortly after in hospital. "It's a remote location. There's not much up there," said Cpl. Warr. He said interviews with several people have given police a "clearer picture" of circumstances surrounding Mr. Short's death. "We will continue to treat the death as suspicious until we have proven no foul play is involved." A volunteer firefighter said Mr. Short was alive but in bad condition and couldn't be resuscitated when he was found a short distance from the dirt road. His clothes were frozen to his body, indicating he'd been in the water, perhaps in a brook near the woods road. There was speculation Mr. Short might have become lost in the woods after his vehicle got stuck in mud. Mr. Short, a backhoe operator, was described as "very quiet" by a neighbour. Results of an autopsy aren't expected for a couple of weeks.

Mounties release crash victim's name
IRISH VALE - St. Peter's RCMP have released the name of a man who died in a two vehicle-crash Friday afternoon on a Cape Breton highway. Joseph Carl Sampson, 59, of Louisdale was heading for home from the direction of Sydney when his car crashed into a vehicle with two occupants heading towards Chapel Island. Mr. Sampson died at the scene. Passengers in both vehicles suffered multiple injuries in the head-on crash, which blocked Highway 4 near Irish Cove for more than five hours. Mr.
Sampson's wife and the driver of the other vehicle remained in hospital Monday. Big Pond firefighters used the Jaws of Life to get the victims out of their vehicles. RCMP say no charges are expected, but the accident remains under investigation.
 Const. Doug Ross said there doesn't appear to be any one obvious cause of the crash, in which Mr. Sampson's vehicle crossed the centre line. "Weather was bad at the time, but I wouldn't be able to say whether it was a factor," he said.

SAMSON, Sister Anne - Passed away in Provincial House of Les Filles de Jesus, 553 Elmwood Dr., Moncton, at the respectable age of 113 and in her 87th year of religious profession. According to the latest studies, she was the 8th oldest person on the planet. Born in Riviere-Bourgeois, on February 27, 1891, she was the daughter of the late Thomas Samson and Philomene Bourque. She has survived her five sisters and four brothers. However, she has nieces and nephews who have expressed the wish to assist at her funeral. Sister Anne made her Normal School in Truro around 1912. She then taught on Cape Breton Island, mostly in Poulamond, on Isle Madame. At the age of 24, she entered the novitiate at Trois-Rivieres and became Fille de Jesus in 1917. Sr. Anne spent her teaching career in Arichat (23 years) and Cheticamp (7 years). From 1947 on, her health somewhat failing her, she had to quit teaching and take a time of rest. In as much as her strength allowed her, she filled various offices in Trois-Rivieres, Nash Creek, Dalhousie and Moncton. She took her retreat at the Provincial House in Moncton in 1967. No one would have guessed that she would have such a long retreat. In 1991, she celebrated her 100th birthday, and we had the joy of having her with us 13 more years. At times, she wondered if the Good Lord had not forgotten her on this earth. Sr. Anne was very talented and composed poems and songs for different occasions, some even after her 100th birthday. However, from 1986 on, she was unable to walk due to a hip fracture. And since 2003, she was bedridden. She was called to meet her Saviour on Monday, November 29. The remains are resting today from 2-9 p.m. in Provincial House, 553 Elmwood Dr., Moncton from where the funeral mass will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, December 2. Interment will be in Our Lady of Calvary Cemetery, Dieppe. Funeral arrangements under the direction of Frenette Funeral Home, 88 Church Street, Moncton (506-858-1900). www.frenettefuneralhome.com

SAMSON, Shane Robert - 33.
The heartache of losing Shane will be forever felt by devoted parents John "Ronnie" and Genevieve; sister, Raylene and husband Barry; brother, Tim and wife Patty; as well as nieces, Olivia and Shelby, and nephews, Julian and Dominic. Proud to be a blue-collar man, Shane's skills and adventurous spirit led him to construction jobs in Florida, British Columbia and the Yukon. He was always open to a good time and loved his family, friends, music and travel. As such, he may very well have crammed more into his 33 years than most do with 80. Just as in life, Shane continued to give in death. On February 5, 2006, he donated six strong, healthy organs that gave six strangers a second chance at life. He died in Edmonton's University Hospital from complications after brain surgery. He was predeceased by grandparents, Mathew and Elizabeth Whitty, and Vander and Alvina Samson. Family and friends are invited to pay their respects during visitation Friday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. in Atlantic Funeral Home, 125 Sackville Dr., Lower Sackville. Funeral service will be held Saturday at 2 p.m. in St. John Vianney Church, 4 Beaverbank Rd., Lower Sackville. Donations may be made to the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada (www.btfc.org) or Stan Rogers Folk Festival (www.StanFest.com) as a tribute to one of Shane's favourite performers, another man taken at the young age of 33.

Obituary for Sophie Marie Samson

Samson, Sophie - It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and sister, Sophie (Girroir) Samson, resident of St. Anne's Community & Nursing Care Centre, Arichat. Born in West Arichat, June 25, 1927 to Jean-Baptiste and Mabel (Girroir) Girroir. She was the youngest of fourteen children and is survived by her sister, Sr. Nancy Girroir, Riverview, NB. She was the wife of the late Jean Francois Samson and is survived by her six children, Cynthia (Gary) Landry, Paulette (Clifford) Boudreau, Angela (Michael) Boudreau, Lois (Kevin) Young, Brian (Alice) Samson and Lisa (Brian) Boudreau and fifteen grandchildren, Jason and Stephen Landry, Nathan (Jennifer), Jonas, Samuel and Franchesca Boudreau, Mandy Boudreau, Evan and Chad Young, Kayla, Simone and Jacques Samson, and Nicole, Ben and Emelie Boudreau and three great-grandchildren, Ava, Xavia and Annabel. Also, special niece Rosie (Adolphe) Forgeron and in-laws, Claudia LeBlanc, Rita (Charles) Landry, Jeand'Arc Landry, Lillian Samson, Norma Samson and Harry (Jessie) Helin, as well as many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her siblings, Petronille, (Adolphe), Edmund, Euclide, Raymond, Br. Thomas, Sr. Eva May, Genevieve, Monsignor Conrad, Sophie Stella and three in infancy. Sophie was a person of great courage, strength, compassion and faith. She began her journey as a teacher in Louisdale where many remember her as the beautiful young sister of Fr. Conrad, then parish priest-only to be admired from afar! She then felt her true calling and entered formal training through St. Martha's School of Nursing to become a Registered Nurse. As a young nurse, she traveled and worked for a few years in New York and California before returning to her beloved Isle Madame. There she met and married husband Jean and settled to raise her family. Sophie is fondly remembered as a caring and compassionate nurse. She assisted in the delivery of many babies in the old St. Anne's Hospital and saw the passing of many in the current, St. Anne's Community & Nursing Care Centre, often spending nights sitting by patient's bedside helping to ease the loneliness and suffering with her presence. As a wife and mother, she shone, always expecting the best, never punishing weaknesses, always encouraging strengths. She taught by example, often quoting the golden rules as cornerstones to a life well lived. She gave generously of her time and provided varied experiences to boost our day and enrich our lives. Believing in the importance of education, she encouraged our best, trusting we would do well because we were "all smart like your father". She also encouraged post-secondary education as a necessary base upon which to grow, prosper and give back to society. We, her children, will always remember her kind voice, encouraging and wise words and beautiful face. She was a mother by excellence, always patient, giving, nurturing and forever loved. She became a role model and mother to many she met along the way. Sophie understood the process of life and faced each new health challenge with the same grace and faith with which she had always lived. Knowing the end was near and bravely moving forward toward her final journey and eternal resting place in the presence of our Lord and Savoir, she now rests eternally in the Lord's tender embrace. Visitation will be held on Thursday, May 5 & 6, 2011 from 2 - 4 & 7 - 9 pm and on Friday from 12 - 1:30 p.m. all in C.H. Boudreau Funeral Home, 633 Veteran's Memorial Drive in Arichat. Funeral Mass to celebrate the life of Sophie will be held Friday afternoon at 2 p.m. in St. Joseph's Church, Petit De Grat on with Rev. Duaine Devereaux officiating.
