GALLAWAY, Catherine Marie - 1927-2006. It is with profound sorrow that the family of Catherine Marie Gallaway announces her passing on Wednesday, May 31, 2006, in Cape Breton Regional Hospital in Sydney. Born in Antigonish on December 19, 1927, she was a daughter of the late Roderick and Christina (Forbes) MacLean. Marie was a member of St. Theresa's Parish, Sydney. Her lifelong passion for caring led her first to a career in nursing at St. Martha's Hospital in Antigonish and later at Mercy Hospital and St. Rita's Hospital in Sydney. After a brief respite to concentrate on her young family, Marie assumed responsibilities as the Director at The Day Care Centre for Handicapped Children in Sydney. Mare loved to laugh. Her sense of humour and quick wit will be fondly remembered by those who knew her. Whether during a game of Tarabish or Rummy, bowling on Tuesday with the gang or during one of the many long drives that she and her husband Tom enjoyed, she was a lady who taught those around her to enjoy life to its fullest. Marie took great pride in her home and was often teased for bringing dusting to a new level. She was a terrific cook, an amazing baker and could float across a dance floor. Most of all, Marie enjoyed her family and looked forward to the many holiday celebrations, birthdays, the annual summer slumber party and a host of other times when everyone would gather together. She was a devoted wife who cherished every minute that she spent with Tom and her family. In Marie's eyes, her children could do no wrong and were the pride and joy of her life. She epitomized the role of Nanny and spent countless hours with her grandchildren. Marie is survived by her husband of 53 years, Tom Gallaway, Sydney; daughters, Brenda (John) MacIsaac, Sydney; Raylene (J.P.) Melanson, Moncton; Carol (Tom) Ripley, Sydney; Cathy (Jeff) Haider, Halifax; son, David (Deanna) Gallaway, Halifax; grandchildren, Cheri, David, Laura, Michelle, Patricia, Brett, Jocelyn, Craig, Derek and Justin, and many loving nieces and nephews. Also surviving are Marie's brother, John Bernard, Kingston; sister, Isabel, Antigonish, and sister-in-law, June MacLean, Toronto. In addition, Marie will be sorely missed by surviving members of her second family, the sons and daughters of the deceased Jim and Josie Floyd (Antigonish), who Marie lived with beginning at the age of 12. Marie's joyful times with this family growing up ensured a lifelong love of Antigonish, where she claimed the sun always shone. Marie was predeceased by her parents; son, Gerald, and brothers, James, Roderick, Harold and Hugh Gillis. Visitation for the late Marie Gallaway will take place in T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel, 755 George St., Sydney, today from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral mass will be Saturday, June 3, at 10 a.m. in St. Theresa's Church with Father Angus MacDougall officiating. Burial will be in Resurrection Cemetery, Sydney Forks. Donations can be made in Marie's memory to the Canadian Cancer Society or Palliative Care Unit of Cape Breton Regional Hospital. The family will forever remember the kindness and care provided by the nurses and staff on 4B to Marie and the entire family during her stay in the hospital.

GRAHAM, Elizabeth Jean - It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our mother, Jean (MacDonald) Graham, 78, on June 12, 2006. After a full and healthy life, Jean passed away following a brief illness in QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Antigonish and went on to work at St. Francis Xavier University where she met and married her husband of over 40 years, Al Graham. They raised a close knit family of 10 children, who were all at her bedside in her final days. Jean was known for her style, beauty and wit, but we knew Mom best for her wisdom, strength and love. She was, and always will be, the glue that bound our family together. Her many lifelong friends were a testament to her grace and loyalty. She welcomed everyone into her home with enormous warmth. In Jean's home and in her heart, there was always room for one more. Her greatest joy was being surrounded by her family - her children, siblings, in-laws, nieces and nephews, and especially her (almost) 21 grandchildren who she enveloped with her unconditional love. She remained a modest person who was genuinely touched by the kindness of others. Above all else, she was a deeply spiritual person and her faith guided her life from beginning to end. She will be deeply missed by her children, Patricia, Alasdair (Margaret), Jack, David (Nancy), Eileen Barrett (George), Bill (Leah), Danny, Mary Hanington (Rob), Jeannie Wamboldt (Jeff), and Anne Marie Mazerolle (Scott). She is also survived by her sisters, Marguerite Haley, Irene Dempsey and Audrey Mitton, and brother, Bert, along with our family nanny of 40 years, Marjorie Martindale. She was predeceased by her parents, Lillian and Hadley MacDonald; brother, Hadley; sisters, Lillian Connolly and Geraldine Chisholm; and her beloved daughters-in-law, Norma Graham and Sheelagh Nolan. Visitation will be held on Thursday, June 15, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon and 3-5 p.m. in St. Agnes Catholic Church, corner of Mumford Road and Chebucto Road, Halifax. A funeral mass will be held on Friday, June 16, in St. Agnes Catholic Church at 11 a.m. A private family burial will be held in her hometown of Antigonish.
