1263 Wayne Edward SHANO — Hantsport

Passed away in QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax on Friday, January 7, 2022 with his loved ones holding his hands. He was such a brave fighter who wanted to come home but diabetes, heart and kidneys said no. Wayne had an incredible zest for life; he lived big and he appreciated every precious day he was given. He was a proud North-end boy who always loved to drive through his part of the city and reminisce about younger days and all the wonderful adventures he’d had, especially with his brother Brian. He was a ‘child at heart’ exploring toy stores and hobby stores and in his later years experienced the joy of model trains. He was a respected employee of Oland’s Brewery for 33 years; working at the Brewery was a family affair as both his dad, Bert, his brother Brian and his daughter Kathy worked there too. How he loved to play on the Oland’s baseball and hockey teams! Wayne was a proud dad whose dear daughter Kathy inherited not only his love of shopping but also of travel. They went to Disneyland, skied at Sugar Loaf and Smuggler’s Notch and enjoyed many rides in his prized mustard yellow MG Midget. He was an animal lover and a lover of dogs; he appreciated their unconditional love and companionship. Our dog Chester is lost without him. Wayne really liked to ‘stir the pot’, both in the kitchen and in conversation. In the kitchen he loved to cook and bake; he was our master chef- from BBQ whiskey sauce, homemade breads, cheese cakes and pumpkin pie with a hint of rum. And then there were conversations, especially with his good buddy, Roy when talking politics. He had a quick wit and a dry sense of humor. I could have written a book! Wayne and his sweetheart Susan made many incredible memories in their 25 years together. We worked on our ‘bucket list’ and did a good job of it, trips across the Pond, concerts and more concerts and especially crashing the Royal Wedding of Will and Kate. Wayne was the love of my life and I was his! Wayne was predeceased by his parents, Thelma (Robar) and Bert Shano; his brothers, Brian Shano and Jackie Robar. A heartfelt thank you to the VON staff that cared for Wayne with compassion and kindness, it was much appreciated; also, our most thankful respect and appreciation for the doctors and nurses of the Heart Function clinic, the Leg and Ulcer clinic and the Cardiac Care unit of the QEII. Special thanks to retired Dr. Frank Lo and Dr. Michael Diab; you’re the best!! In keeping with Wayne’s wishes cremation has taken place. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations made to the Children’s Wish Foundation would be greatly appreciated.

1266 We are sad to announce that Wendell Holmes Jeffrey,passed away peacefully on August 26, 2018, in the Veterans Unit, Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital, Lunenburg. Born in picturesque Sandy Cove, Digby County, on December 22,1921, Wendell was the second eldest of eight children. His father, Floyd Vertal, made a modest living from the sea and the land and his mother, Margaret Elizabeth (Holmes), was a teacher and organist at the local Baptist church. After graduating from Normal College, he taught in a one room school in Great Village, Nova Scotia prior to the outbreak of the Second World War. He then served his country in the RCAF during the war, and later attended Dalhousie University with the assistance of the Royal Canadian Air Force Benevolent Fund earning a Bachelor of Science degree. Subsequently, he was accepted into the Dalhousie Medical School and graduated as Doctor of Medicine serving in the Royal Canadian Army Medical Core as a commissioned officer during that time. He brought his young family to Shelburne, Nova Scotia, in 1953, practising medicine with great dedication, skill and compassion until his retirement. He is fondly remembered by his patients, physician colleagues, nursing staff and other health care workers. With original partner Dr. D.R. Campbell, he established the Shelburne Medical Group, one of the first group family medical centres in Nova Scotia, providing uninterrupted comprehensive medical care to the community, encompassing general medicine, obstetrics, anesthesia and surgical assistance. Despite a very busy medical practise, he was a dedicated and much loved father and husband and became the ultimate Pater Familias to his children and his grandchildren after the death of our mother, Marjorie and subsequently to his great grandchildren, never forgetting birthdays and special occasions. He also contributed to his community in other ways, serving on Shelburne Town Council and as president of the Shelburne Kiwanis Club, and was a founding member of the Shelburne County Golf and Country Club (now River Hills Golf Club). He had a lifelong love of music and sang baritone with the Shelburne men's quartet with Earle Smith, Earl Darrow and Stan West, accompanied by Dot Smith. He was predeceased by loving wife Marjorie (Hilton) Jeffrey, sister Florence (Fred) Sabean, brothers Fenwick (Laura) Jeffrey and Phillip (Helen) Jeffrey and daughter-in-law, Mary Jane (Michael) Jeffrey.  Jeffrey, Wendall Holmes (I14768)
 
1267 We are sad to announce the passing of Lorna Blanche Jenkins on March 16, 2021 at the age of 87. Born on June 13th, 1933, in Hantsport, NS, to Burton Cameron and Annie Kathleen (Whitman) Yeaton,

Lorna grew up in a large family and, following the early death of her father, her mother became the sole parent of seven. The Yeaton children developed strong bonds as they learned to support each other from an early age. Among those cherished bonds that have endured a lifetime, the ones with her only sister and with her twin brother were always special. Lorna has recently written a book in memory and celebration of the seven siblings.She is predeceased by her brothers Russell (Mabel) and Jack (Lily).

She was the wife of the late Bernard Cecil Jenkins.

Lorna graduated from the Nova Scotia Teacher’s College in Truro. It was there that she met Bernard. Over the years, they moved many times with their young family, finally ending up in Labrador City. In 2000, they returned to Nova Scotia where they built a home in Antigonish to be closer to family.

Daughter, sister, niece, cousin, friend, teacher, aunt, in-law, mother, businesswoman, grandmother, critic, and mentor: Lorna wore all these mantles with calm and grace. She was a masterful sewer and a reluctant but proficient knitter who was always willing to share her skills. Her quiet, steady presence was a boon to Deborah as she started her creative business.

Lorna wasn’t a huge fan of playing sports but a poetically excellent triple toe triple lutz or a hole-in-one would bring a tear to her eye and her hands to her mouth as she slowly crept to the edge of her seat. She was a wonderful cook, for whom cake was the pinnacle of culinary excellence, closely followed by the egg roll. Lorna threw herself into social events, as happy to entertain as to be a guest.

In retirement she and her sister travelled far and wide, often accompanied by other family members on trips where laughter and camaraderie were given free rein.

Lorna cared for her family with deep and abiding love. Her family, her friends and her beloved cat, Spike, all knew the value of this extraordinary gift.

A Celebration Of Her Life will be held at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to the St. Martha’s Hospital Palliative Care, the Canadian Cancer Society, or the Red Cross Antigonish. 
Yeaton, Lorna Blanche (I2415)

1270 WEBSTER (Bishop), Myrna Clare
Age 92, of Port Williams, passed away Saturday, March 19, 2016, in Shannex-Blomidon Court, Greenwich. Born in Bishopville on June 21, 1923, she was a daughter of the late Ernest and Lola (Coldwell) Bishop. The youngest of six children, she began her married life with Earle Webster in 1942. For 18 years they raised their family and built a successful farm in Port Williams. In November 1960 the unthinkable happened, her husband Earle passed away and Myrna was left with a farm to manage on her own plus five children ages 17 to the youngest, a baby born a week later. Her strength and determination never ceased to amaze. Her priority was always her kids, and with the help of family through the 1960’s she kept the farm going by making sure the work always got done. She took in school boarders and even provided a home for troubled children for many years. She worked incredibly hard doing whatever she could, back in the days of no modern conveniences. In 1970 she married her second husband, Gordon, only to be on her own again two years later when he passed away. Again she carried on by working off the farm to earn an income. Her homemade apple pies and bread were legendary. It was almost magical how quickly she could make an apple pie for desert and have it perfect every time. At the end of her life when she battled Alzheimer’s she always knew her kids. She was a fighter to the end. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family. In addition to her husbands, she was predeceased by sisters, Norine Ross and Nita Munden; brothers, Harold, Harvey and Ernie. A private family burial will take place in Elm Grove Cemetery, Steam Mill.

1276 Wendy Marie (nee Francis) Rafuse … It is with profound sadness that we announce Wendy’s peaceful passing on Saturday, June 27, 2009 at her home on the Glooscap First Nation, Bishopville. Born in Halifax on July 3, 1956, she was a daughter of Bill and Neta (nee Tupper) Francis. Wendy was a loving wife and a caring mother and grandmother. Her devotion to the people she loved was obvious to all who knew her. She was quick to laugh and enjoyed telling stories of her experiences, both past and present. Wendy was a strong, proud woman who was never heard to complain and was always ready to assist others. The love of her dog, Tee and of nature, especially watching the birds that she so diligently fed, various crafts and “shopping for sales” were a source of everyday enjoyment for Wendy. Her best friend and life partner, Vincent Martin was always with her and together, they enjoyed every day to the fullest. She leaves memories that will never fade. Her passing leaves a sadness that can only be relieved in knowing that she is now resting peacefully in God’s care.

1280 WEST, Stephen Franklyn

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the death of Stephen Franklyn West, on November 28, 2021. Stephen was born in Halifax on October 10, 1951, to Gerald and Mildred (Crewe) West. Though the West boys were all born in Halifax, they moved to Lockhartville when they were very young. Stephen loved his family, his friends, music and the sea. His love of music was lifelong, he played various instruments, but his instrument of choice was the clawhammer banjo. He played in many bands and entertained at festivals, pubs and music venues. He had a large family of musical and music loving friends, who will miss him dearly. As much as Stephen loved music, he had an equal love of the sea. Most of the warmer months, you would find Stephen and Joann on their boat, “Trinity”, sailing to islands and locations on the South Shore with friends and family. A day on the ocean with Stephen and Joann was always so much fun. Stephen had a long career in oil exploration, in directional drilling, which took him to many countries all over the world. He always claimed that his favorite country was Vietnam while his least favorite was Angola, where he had to exit quickly amid a military coup and the Ebola virus. His travels and work stories were always wonderful, fun and sometimes terrifying to listen to. Stephen also had a pilot’s license, he and his father shared a love of flying and there were a select few who were actually brave enough to go up with them. If Stephen taught us anything, it is to do what you love, follow your passion, live life to the fullest. He did that every day. Stephen loved his family enormously. Stephen was predeceased by his father, Gerald; and his brother, Michael. Cremation has taken place and there will be no visitation or funeral service, by request. Donations in memory may be made to Mahone Islands Conservation Association.

1290 With heavy hearts the family of Wanda Johnston, 65 of Bishopville, share the passing of a beloved daughter, mother, grandmother, cousin, and friend. On March 13, 2022, she passed away peacefully in her home ‘on the hill’. Wanda was the proud daughter of Gladys (Atwell) and the late Roy Miner.

Wanda began her early career in radio at AVR. She later worked in local schools as an educational assistant where she exemplified her passion for helping others. After spending a number of years at home raising her children and grandchildren, Wanda ventured to Nunavut. She cherished her time in Iqaluit working in hospitality and schools before joining the airline industry. She fell in love with The North and the many friends she and her husband, Shannon, met there.

Her love of animals began at an early age and is one of the many gifts she passed on to her children and grandchildren. She always had a pet or two or more, but she was most excited to bring her dream to life of owning her own small farm on the family homestead on the hill. It was here on the family farm that she passed on the knowledge and love especially of horses that she had learned from her dad and special aunt, Pearl Myles. Although the farm grew quiet in the recent year it was a wonderful home for many four-legged family members over the years. She will be dearly missed by her little buddy Fern.

Wanda enjoyed a good cup of coffee or tea with great company, many friends and family have enjoyed many cups with good conversation over the years. She found great joy preparing a meal for her loved ones. Among so many things her famous carrot cake and chocolate chip cookies will be dearly missed by many.
