ARRIVAL
The waves were all my eyes could see
The current all my arms could feel;
A chilly rain so battered me
That where I was became unreal.
I pulled and cried, all courage spent,
With every blast I fell behind—
All rocks, and spume and empty sea
All space awhirl, my eyes half blind.

Then all was gone, rain, wind and wave
The pain that seized, the tears that fell;
My small boat crested on the swell,
And You were waiting there for me.

MERRILL, Laureen Maude

MERRILL, Laureen Maude
At the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital, Fredericton, NB, Sept. 13, 2014, Laureen Maude (Smith) Merrill of Fredericton, NB.
On May 25, 1936 in Oak Hill, NB, Laureen was the first born of Alexander and Vera Smith. The family moved to Dewolfe Corner and by her mid-teens she had caught the eye of her future husband of 61 years, Ross Merrill. Their life together began on March 27, 1952.
The next seven years of their lives saw them introduce three children into the world, Steven Ross, Elaine Vera and Rory Alexander. During these early years Laureen proved to be a supportive young wife and a loving mother as the family relocated overseas and across Canada. On March 9, 1969 Laureen gave birth to their fourth child, Bryan Roger.
No matter where they lived, people were drawn to Laureen’s kind, sweet and loving nature. In the late ‘80’s she graduated as an RNA from St. Andrews and began working at Lincourt Manor in St. Stephen.
Laureen was affectionately called “Nanny” by all five of her grandchildren, starting with Ryan in 1988, then followed by Ross, Raelle and Klark through the ‘90’s. In 2002 her final grandchild, Braxtyn, was born. Laureen became a Great-Nanny with the addition of Addy Rose and, only a month ago, Elizabeth Lane.
Laureen loved music, family gatherings and providing hospitality to her many friends.
She was predeceased by her daughter, Elaine, in 1980 and just over six months ago by the love of her life, Ross.
Laureen is survived by her three sons and their families; her sister, Diana Cannon and her husband Glenn; brother, Russ, and Auntie Berla.
Laureen believed in the Bible’s promise of an earthly resurrection of the dead in the near future. She believed that God’s Kingdom government will soon take control of the earth’s affairs and transform it into a paradise where pain and death will be no more (Rev 21:3,4).
Funeral service will be held at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 9161 Route 3, Old Ridge, NB on Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014 at 2 p.m. Visiting hours will be held at The S.O. Mehan & Son Funeral Home Ltd., 23 Main Street, St. Stephen, NB on Saturday from 12-1 p.m.

Weir, Joan Alice

Joan Alice Weir

Joan Alice Weir went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, July 6, 2014. She was the daughter of Robina Gaddis and stepfather Donald Gaddis Sr., of Calais. She died peacefully at home in Templeton, CA from complications related to cancer. She was 73 years old. She was born in 1941 in Sunnyside, NB.
The family moved to Milltown, NB, where she attended Milltown Elementary School. She later worked at the Ganong Chocolate Factory.
She married Douglas Parks in 1958 and had two daughters: Tammi, born in 1959, and Lori Ann born in 1960, a year later.
While she was divorced from Douglas Parks she never lost her love for the Parks family: Douglas and Berth Parks (Grimmer), both now deceased; MaryAnne Parks (Culliton), of Coldbrook, NS and Joyce Parks (Burns), of Fredericton, NB. Ma Parks, as she was called by Joan, was a lifelong love, as well as the Parks girls were considered as sisters and considered them so until her passing.
She later moved to Montreal and went to work at the Catherine Booth Children’s Hospital, where she met and married Herb Osmond. They moved to California and after seven years she was again divorced and remained single for over eight years prior to meeting and marrying her sole mate and the one true love of her life, Sam Weir.
Joan and Sam were happily married for over 35 years. She worked in California at a doctor’s office for 22 years, and was dearly loved by staff and patients. Joan was also very active in her community, volunteering over the years with many organizations such as Echo Homeless Shelter and the Paso Robles Library, to name a few. Family, friends and faith were Joan’s delight! She loved to laugh and made having fun a priority - like spending time on the hot sands of Hawaii with a stack of good books, dancing to Toby Keith, or just spending a carefree night out with friends! She truly lived life to the fullest and had a special ability to reach and touch people in a positive way. One would always come away from time spent with Joanie feeling better no matter the circumstances, and always with a smile. She was a shining light!
Joan had many physical struggles over recent years, but her faith and joy in Jesus never wavered. While she has many friends in California she never forgot her close high school friends in Calais and returned yearly to spend time with her close and always loving mother Robina “Vi” and her hometown friends.
She is survived by her husband, Sam Weir, of Templeton, CA; her mother, Robina “Vi” Gaddis, of Calais, ME; her brother, Paul Desmond, Calais, ME; daughter, Tamela “Tammi” Cegelske (Jerry), of Ketchikan, Alaska and Tracy Bower (David), of Livermore, CA; eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her stepfather, Donald Gaddis, Sr., of Calais, ME; her brother, Roy Duplessis, and her daughter, Lori Parks.
Services were held Sunday, Sept. 7, 2014 at the Highlands Church, 215 Oak Hill Rd., Paso Robles, CA 93446.
