Granddaughter Aliyah read a letter entitled “Dear God” at her grandmother’s service. A very dear friend, Cecille Ruddock, read Bible scriptures and a poem entitled “Miss Me – But Let Me Go.”

Sylvia was a wonderful mother, grandmother, aunt and friend to all who knew her. Sylvia was a loving, kind caregiver to so many of her family members. She loved Christmas. The week before she passed away she said, “I do not have to receive, but I love to give.” And that she did. She was such a kind, generous person. She enjoyed her fall trip each year to Maine and New Hampshire, a week at the cottage, and her shopping trips to Bangor. She loved to shop for Nanny’s girl Aliyah, especially for Dolls.

HADDON, Alberta Mattie

HADDON, Alberta Mattie
Alberta Mattie (Carroll) Haddon was born on March 20, 1928 in Nelson Hollow, just up the Miramichi from Doaktown, NB. She was raised in a large family of eight (Carvel, Newton, Hudson, Alberta, Nan (Sgambatti), Georgie (Clark), Guy, and Jimmy). Alberta attended Normal School in Fredericton (now Teachers College), and upon graduation, accepted her first teaching position at Pleasant Ridge, near St Stephen. The following year she upgraded to two-room schools in Leonardville and Fairhaven, Deer Island. This proved a fortuitous assignment, where she met and eventually married William (Bill) Haddon, who was also embarking on a teaching career.
Alberta’s early married life revolved around her own growing family, eventually comprising six children; first living in a log cabin near Bill’s parents, then moving to St. Stephen where Bill taught in the High School for 15 years. A move to Oromocto in 1967 provided a much larger community where both Bill and Alberta contributed greatly through school and church. The family always enjoyed their summer breaks on Deer Island, with Bill for many years working on the water. After Bill died in 1992, Alberta moved back to St. Stephen, eventually to Fredericton and then to Oromocto to be near family. Alberta’s sister, Nan, is the last of her siblings, now living in Toronto. Alberta’s younger daughter Arlene (Corbett) died two years ago in Georgia. Her eldest daughter Anne (Lossing) lives in El Remate, Guatemala; Paul in Leduc, AB; Herb in Harvey, NB; Maurice in Medford, MA; and John in Calgary, AB. She was proud of her children, the 14 grandchildren, and numerous great-grandchildren. Alberta moved to Leduc in 2009 with Paul, Debbie and family and for the past two years has resided at Salem Manor Nursing Home in Leduc. She died there on December 27, 2014 with family at her side.
A Remembrance Service was held at Salem Manor Nursing Home in Leduc, AB on January 3 at 2 p.m.; to be followed by a service at the Oromocto Baptist Church in Oromocto, NB on January 10 at 2 p.m. Burial will take place at Mount Hope Cemetery on Deer Island, NB on January 11 at 2 p.m., weather dependant.

Her early life was lived in St. Stephen, attending local school, enjoying her immediate and extended family.

Susan and Al were privileged to be joined by their children, Ryan and Danelda, soon afterwards. Al preceded her in 1988 in an aircraft mishap, however Susan and the children bravely stayed on the farm by themselves.
In 1997 Susan married Henry Voth and continued their country lifestyle. The two of them had a happy rewarding life of work, service, travel, parenting and especially enjoying their granddaughter Emma.
On December 18th Susan was hospitalized with an irreversible respiratory disease. We will miss her dearly.
