This interest motivated him to acquire a Master's degree in education from Canisius College while carrying a full teaching load besides ensuring daily mass and weekend ministry at St. Andrew's Parish in Kenmore, N.Y. He also served a year as full-time assistant pastor in that parish before returning to the high school as a guidance counselor. In 1974, he did graduate work at St. Paul University in Ottawa. Next, he was assigned as pastor to parishes in the Diocese of Lafayette, La., first in Mire, then in Mermentau. In 1983, he joined the chaplaincy team at the Newman Center of San Diego State University, where he served for 16 years. In 1999, his failing health forced him to retire, first at Nazareth House in San Diego, then to the Eudist infirmary in Charlesbourg. Father Angus was the oldest in a family of seven whose father passed away when the youngest (twin girls) were only two years old. At a very young age, he became a father figure to his younger siblings, showing patience, love and concern for their well-being. He always believed in a strong family unit. Regardless of the time of year, special family events or circumstances drew him home to celebrate or give his support. His presence was always most welcome and appreciated. Though his vocation to the priesthood took him many miles from home, Father Angus returned faithfully each summer for several weeks to West Mabou to reminisce, meet old friends, and enjoy the peace and quiet of the place he loved. He was always ready and willing to either celebrate or participate in celebrating the Eucharist at St. Mary's parish church or say mass in the convent chapel. He could be depended on as well to participate in the annual celebration of mass at the Pioneer Cemetery. His interest in Mabou and the people with whom he shared many things in common never waned. Father Angus was predeceased by his parents, Finley Beaton and Mary Anne (MacDonnell) Beaton, and his sister, Jennie (Stanley) MacNeil. He is survived by brothers, John (Doreen), Hamilton, Ont.; Mack, West Mabou; Rod (Josepha), Halifax; sisters, Anne (Rudy) Schuurmans, Edmonton, Alta.; Marie (Owen), West Mabou; a number of nieces and nephews. A mass has been offered at 11 a.m. on Monday, July 4, in the chapel of the Maison des Eudistes in Charlesbourg. His remains will rest in St. Mary's Church in Mabou with visitation on Thursday, July 7, from 2-5 and 7-9 p.m., where a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m. on Friday, July 8. Interment will follow in the parish cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Mother of Sorrows Pioneer Shrine. Let us entrust him to the Father of mercies and accompany him in prayer to his eternal rest.

Saturday August 2, 2008, the Chronicle Herald, BURTON, George Stanley - 69, Margaree Centre, died peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Thursday, July 31, 2008, in Inverness Consolidated Memorial Hospital. He was born August 5, 1938, in Kings County Memorial Hospital, Berwick. He was a son of the late Stanley R. and Georgie (Taylor) Burton. He was a retired forestry worker. He always enjoyed the outdoors and hunting was one of his passions. His yearly trips to the "camp" added to his wide collection of stories. Anyone who walked through Mom and Dad's door would always be treated to his wonderful sense of humour and a tale or two. Every spring the house would become a mini greenhouse, from tomato plants for Marguerite to eight foot hollyhocks. We believe his ability to produce such a bountiful crop came from his "extra" green thumb. His proudest legacy were his two children, who will miss him dearly. They hope they will inherit a small measure of his courageous perseverance and profound spirit. His grandchildren, Mariah, Reeve and Kyran, provided him with such joy. His wife, Sarah, of 42 years, was his constant companion, best friend and forever love. Their commitment to each other was a testament to marriage "in sickness and in health." He is survived by his wife, the former Sarah Timmons; son, John J. Burton and wife Bonnie, Bible Hill; daughter, Shauna A. Burton and fiancé Aubrey Cranton, Margaree Centre; his beautiful grandchildren, Mariah Fortune, Reeve and Kyran Burton; brothers, Laird (Marg), Margaree; Bert, North East Margaree; sisters, Pastor Dale Crawford, Shubenacadie; Liz (Gord), Margaree Forks, and many nieces and nephews who loved their "Uncle George".

Darlene lived to live, which is her greatest legacy to her family and all who knew her. She was brilliant at whatever she did and was never intimidated by a challenge. She believed in helping people get ahead and she worked very hard in her accounting practice to do just that. She was never still, always busy with work or hobbies; she had boundless energy. Even while ill, she tried to continue until her body told her no more. Darlene is survived by her husband and best friend of almost 51 years, Martin Edward Cameron, Margaree Forks; her daughters, Laurie Cameron (Chris Corkum), Halifax; Leslie Pottier (John), Ottawa; Lynne Cameron (Ottawa); Leanne Fraser (Elliot), Baddeck; and son, David Cameron (Maureen), Detroit, Mich., as well as her grandchildren, Emily and Seamus Corkum, Amanda, Catherine and Mathew Pottier, Kieran MacGillivray, Joshua, Lara and Merrin Fraser, and Liam and Isabel Little and Dominique Cameron.

[The Inverness Oran], Lawrence William Deveaux, 64, East Margaree, died peacefully at home on June 17th, 2002. Born in Glace Bay, he was the son of the late P.F.C. John Joseph Deveaux and Mary Helen (LeBlanc) Deveaux. Following the demise of his father in 1943, the family returned to East Margaree. A diesel mechanic and operating engineer by trade, he was a member of I.U.O.E., Local 721-721B. He leaves behind many dear brothers. As a young man his adventurous spirit often took him far from home to try his hand at a variety of jobs, but he always returned to the place of his heart, the beautiful Margarees. Lawrence was often involved in causes where a knowledgeable, vocal person was required, and if it involved unfairness to his fellow man you would be sure to see him there. A well known person, he will not be soon forgotten by his many friends, neighbors, and acquaintances, the name "Devo" being a household word. Always available to lend a hand, no job was too big or too small. A true humanitarian, he cared deeply for all people and always had time for a good yarn and a cup of tea or coffee. He enjoyed gardening, hunting, fishing, current events, and never missed an opportunity to enjoy life. In later years he was often found on the deck of the North Star where he loved to go out to help set the traps, and be there for the joy of the salt breeze and company of friends, who of course blessed our lobster pot! He was a kind and understanding husband, a loving father and grandfather. He leave behind his devoted wife, Deborah, who was at his side constantly and held his hand as he left this life; sons Michael (Noelle), Sackville, Scott (Jennifer), Halifax; Jodie, Halifax, and Laura, Dartmouth; 3 grandchildren, Larissa Ann, Jessica Rose and Morgan Irene. Although he will be sorely missed, he will be remembered always for his uniquely loving personality. Following cremantion, a funeral mass was held in St. Michael's Church, East Margaree, interment in parish cemetery with Rev. J.J. MacDonald officiating. In memory of Lawrence, a small donation to the Inverness Palliative Care Society would be appreciated.

Forsyth (MacLellan), Catherine Ann 1913-2007

Thursday March 22, 2007, the Chronicle Herald, FORSYTH, Catherine Ann - New Waterford, 1913-2007. How do you capture the love a mother with mere words? It is with enormous sadness but inexpressible gratitude that we celebrate the life of our remarkable mother, Catherine Ann (MacLellan) Forsyth. Mum formerly resided at 42 Emerald St., New Waterford, and most recently at New Waterford Heights. She passed away peacefully in New Waterford Consolidated Hospital in the loving presence of her daughter and special nurses on March 20, 2007. Born in Inverness, she was a daughter of the late "Little" Neil and Rachel (MacDonald) MacLellan. Catherine came to live in New Waterford in 1925 with her widowed mother and seven siblings. Except for time spent working as a waitress in Boston, in an ammunition factory in Montreal and as a waitress in Halifax, Catherine lived in New Waterford for over 60 years. She was married to her beloved "Rab" Robert Forsyth for 36 years. Catherine loved to cook and offered many people delicious meals at her table over the years. Her home was a haven for anyone who knocked and she enjoyed countless happy occasions with family and friends. At 50 years of age, Mum became the supervisor of the cafeteria at the New Waterford Consolidated Hospital where she took pleasure serving the staff, especially the nurses, whom she held in high regard. She loved her job and made many good friends there until she retired at age 60. The last member of her family, Catherine lived through the deaths of all her siblings and particularly grieved the loss of her only brother, Daniel, her closest sister, Margaret, and her two sisters, Sally and Elizabeth, whom she cared for in her own home until their deaths. As well, she endured the loss of her youngest sister, Johnenna, and her two remaining sisters, Anne and Dolly. The hardest loss for her, after tending to her husband through his illness and death at home, was the death of her youngest son, Charles "Chuck" Forsyth, who passed away at the age of 49 from ALS. Mum was a woman of simple, profound faith. She was often heard to say, "Pray, just pray, that's all there is. There's nothing else". Faith in God sustained her throughout 93 years, along with a Gaelic sense of humour, and kept her a pillar of strength for her family. She cherished her eight beautiful grandchildren who filled her life with joy. They will deeply miss her wisdom, love and prayers. They are: Robert Forsyth, Jennifer (Lee) Young, Ontario; Sandy (Shauna) Forsyth, Vermont; Rachel Forsyth, Vancouver; Rob Forsyth Jr., Australia; Rachelle Boudreau, Ontario; Odette (Paul) Labranche, Ottawa; Christian (Vanessa) Boudreau, Dartmouth. They were blessed to have Grandma in their lives and will always have delightful, happy memories of her. Her children, Robert "Chip" and Isabel, Pictou County; Elizabeth Forsyth, Quebec; Beth and Bernie Boudreau, New Waterford, learned many life lessons by witnessing the example, courage, humour and strength Mum showed. We are left with wonderful memories and words of wisdom to guide us back to her some day. These truths do not make the parting easier; we miss her deeply. In these last years of her life Mum met many special "angels" who showered her with affection and care - Ann and Leo Gillis, home care workers, all staff on Level 2 of the hospital and lastly her precious nurses and Dr. Littlejohn. Catherine's family was always comforted by your tender concern for their mother. Visitation will take place in V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 380 Smith St., New Waterford, Friday, March 23, from 12-1:30 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Friday at 2 p.m. in St. Michael's Church, River Ryan, with reception following at the Gaul Centre. Burial will be in Union Grove Cemetery at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you do an act of kindness for another, as you remember our beautiful mother with love. On-line expressions of sympathy may be sent to the family at: www.vjmcgillivray.ca In Remembrance Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glint of snow, I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle morning rain. And when you wake in the morning's hush, I am the sweet, uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.
