RASMUSSEN, Dr. Theodore Brown - The family announces the gentle passing of Dr. Theodore
Brown Rasmussen on Wednesday, January 23, 2002. He is predeceased by his most beloved
wife, Catherine Archibald; brothers, Wally and Carl; lovingly remembered by his sister, Charlotte
Roberts, Newport Beach, Calif.; his close knit family, Donald, Ottawa; Ruth Coleman (Jim),
Mary Rasmussen (Roy Cook), Linda Rasmussen (Steve Heckbert) and his very special
grandchildren, Jeremy, Megan, Emma, Katie, Anthony, Andrea and Dylan of Calgary. Ted was
born in Provo, Utah, in 1910, a son of the late Gertrude Brown and Dr. Andrew Theodore
Rasmussen. As a neurosurgeon and former director of the Montreal Neurological Institute, Ted
developed lifelong friendships while training doctors from around the world. He is seen, along
with
doctors, Wilder Penfield, William Cone, Arthur Elvidge and Herb Jasper, as a pioneer in the field
of neurological sciences. He was revered by his students, many of whom are still practicing in
countries around the globe. Ted obtained his medical degree at the University of Minnesota, in
1934 and trained in neurology and neurosurgery at the Montreal Neurological Institute and the
Mayo Clinic. He then served his country in the U.S. Army Medical Corps during the Second
World War as Lieutenant-Colonel and Chief of the neurosurgical sections of two front-line
hospitals in the China-India-Burma Theatre. After the war, Ted accepted the Chair of
Neurological Surgery at the University of Chicago. In 1954, he returned to the MNI and McGill
University in his adopted country of Canada and succeeded Dr. Penfield as Director of the MNI
in 1960. Ted is best remembered for his meticulous work on the surgical treatment of epilepsy
and
his compilation of an unparalleled database of information concerning this neurological problem.
During Ted's college and medical school days, he played professional jazz clarinet and saxophone
and was an outstanding long-distance runner and an excellent skier and golfer. These interests
continued throughout his life. Ted's passion for his career and many interests never overshadowed
his devotion to family and friends. Some of his fondest memories stem from over 40 summers
with
his very special friends of Toney River, Nova Scotia. All who knew Ted were touched by his
wisdom, modesty and gentleness. Our sincere thanks to Dr. Hackemann, the Rockyview Hospital
Staff, the Home Care Team and the Renoir caregivers who enabled our father to live with great
peace and dignity. Special recognition to Millie and Christine, for providing such comfort and
love.
A memorial service celebrating Ted's life will be held 1:30 p.m. Sunday, February 10, in McInnis
& Holloway's Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 Elbow Dr. S.W. If friends so desire, donations may

DUNN (Fournier), Marie Augustine Fernande "Fern" - Passed away in Dartmouth General
Hospital, March 13, 2002. She was a daughter of the late Joseph Fournier and Roberta (Chagnon)
Fauchon, and the stepdaughter of the late Leo Fauchon. Fern graduated as a nurse from Regina
Grey Nuns Hospital in 1939 and began nursing in Swift Current, Sask. Returning to her family's
roots in 1943, she nursed at Montreal General Hospital, but was soon drawn to the dawning of
commercial aviation in Canada. Fern became one of the first stewardesses of Trans-Canada
Airlines (an RN being a prerequisite in those days). In 1947, she left the airline to marry a young,
handsome resident, Dr. Stuart Dunn of Pictou. In Pictou, Fern and Stuart raised three children.
When her youngest was of school age, Fern went back to nursing part time. Eventually, she
would become Director of Nursing at Sutherland-Harris Memorial Hospital in Pictou. Fern was
very involved in community work, including the Red Cross, United Way, Hospital Auxiliary,
Local Council of Women and Victorian Order of Nurses, the latter two of which she served terms
as president. Fern was fiercely proud of her French Canadian roots and was deeply committed to
a strong, united Canada in which all people could flourish. In 1974, she ran as the federal Liberal
candidate in Central Nova and was later elected president of the Central Nova Liberal
Association. In later years, ill health slowed her down (marginally say those who knew her), but
she remained an active citizen and a doting mother and grandmother. Fernande is survived by
daughter, Michele (husband Dan Brennan); sons, Barrie (wife Caitlyn Colquhoun), Kim (wife
Stephanie); beloved grandchildren, Zachary, Tristan, Emily, Carly; sisters, Pauline (Mrs. Roland
St. Hilaire), California; Dolores and Marcelle, Regina; Jean, Edmonton; step-grandson, Max
Brennan (wife Pearleen Moffard); step great-granddaughter, Madison. She was predeceased by

SALTER (Spinks), Norma Hilda - Passed away at her home in Stellarton, March 23, 2002. Born
November 2, 1920, in Ely, Cambridgeshire, England, she was a daughter of Harry and Catherine
(Bunting) Spinks. With her three sisters and brother, she spent her early years in Clacton
attending school there. When the Second World War started, she began her teacher training at St.
Catherine's College making many lifelong friends. These friends had many reunions and enjoyed
numerous trips together over the last 20 years. Following college, Norma began her teaching
career in war-torn England. Many of her days were spent teaching in air raid shelters and
comforting the children. During this time, Norma met her future husband Bruce who was in the
Canadian Army. They married on March 20, 1945 and Norma sailed to Halifax in March of 1946
as a Canadian war bride to begin their new life in Nova Scotia. They settled first in Westville
where their daughter, Kathryn, was born. They move to Stellarton in the 1950's where their
second daughter, Janice, was born. Norma started her Canadian teaching career in New Glasgow
in 1961, teaching at the Brown School and West Side School. In 1966, she move to G.R.
Saunders Elementary School where she taught until her retirement in 1981. During these years,
Norma and Bruce were devoted leaders in the Scouting movement. She was also involved in
Stellarton Home and School Association and was a member of Sharon St. John United Church
where she taught Sunday school for a number of years. During the 1960's she completed a six
year program at the Department of Education Summer School in Halifax. Following retirement,
Norma stayed active by volunteering with the Laubach Literacy Group, tutoring adult learners
and teaching other tutors while also serving on the provincial Literacy Council. She was also past
president of the Retired Teachers Association of Pictou County, past president of the Stellarton
Auxiliary to Aberdeen Hospital and a member of the Stellarites. Norma and Bruce were also avid
travellers, enjoying trips with family and friends. They loved to spend time in their garden.
Norma also loved to knit, crochet, read and do crossword puzzles. The most important thing in
Norma's life was always family. She dearly loved her siblings and was fortunate enough to have
many reunions with them. As a mother, she was devoted to her daughters and a wonderful role
model for them. Her three grandchildren were fortunate in that she was able to spend many hours
with them as they grew. She was always available to read a story, do special projects and give lots
of hugs! In the last three and a half years, the special light in her eyes was due to the visits she
had with her very precious great-grandsons. Norma leaves behind wonderful memories for her
daughters, Kathryn Saunders and husband Bob, Stellarton; Janice Mason and husband Frank,
Dartmouth; granddaughter, Karyn Chabassol and husband Dave, Stellarton; grandson, Jeff

called New Glasgow his hometown. He was a son of Loretta (Lamey) MacLean, New Glasgow
and Roderick MacLean, Hamilton, Ont. Joe leaves behind his loving wife and best friend, Angela
(Richardson); daughter, Katherine and son, Camden; brothers, Douglas (Sheila), Bedford;
Gregory, Halifax; sisters, Susan, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; Gail, New Glasgow; nephew, Brendan
and nieces, Heather and Gillian. He was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Catherine and
Alexander Lamey; his paternal grandparents, Florence and Angus MacLean; his mother-in-law,
Judy Richardson. At the time of his death he was employed with the Workers' Compensation
Board of Nova Scotia as Manager of Infrastructure Operations. He worked there for 13 years and
was loved and respected by his colleagues. It was there that he and Angie met and the people of
the WCB became their extended family. Joe felt his family was his greatest blessing and his
friends meant the world to him. He held deep bonds with the people in his life and treasured his
relationships with them. Joe had a love for all sports, but his pastime of choice was softball and
he played it with heart. And, as with anything he did, fairness was paramount. He was a man of
honor and loyalty, of courage and faith. He loved to laugh and had a great sense of humor. He
spoke with pride of his youth, growing up in New Glasgow, playing high school basketball and
playing snare drum with the 397 Trenton Air Cadet band. Although the promise of eternal life
was a comfort to him in his final days, it was with great heartache that he left behind his young
family. His memory will live in the hearts of all those he touched and his beautiful spirit and
strength will never be forgotten. Visitation will be 7-9 p.m. today, 2-4, 7-9 p.m. Thursday in

OBIT # 3719 - The New Glasgow Evening News, Tuesday, April 7, 1987 -
NEW GLASGOW - A link with Pictou County's past was severed in Bradenton, Florida, by the
death in hospital Monday, after a brief illness of Lieutenant Colonal John MacKay Sinclair CD, a
career soldier and native of New Glasgow. Since retirement from Canada's Regular Army he had
lived in the summer at Melmerby Beach, in the spring and fall in Halifax, and in winter in
Florida. Born in 1918, he was the oldest of the children of Col. D. C. Sinclair QC, for many years
New Glasgow's magistrate, and wife Norma MacKay, a granddaughter of Squire John MacKay, a
pioneer and magistrate in the East River settlement that grew into the town of New Glasgow. On
Col. Sinclair's paternal side he was a great-grandson of the shipbuilder and the first of the
county's MPs, the Hon. Senator James W. Carmichael and grandson of Guysborough MP John H.
Sinclair. John Sinclair's education was in New Glasgow's schools, followed by the Royal Mili!
tary College, graduating in 1939. His military career began as a boy piper in the pipe band of the
Cumberland Highlanders under the late Pipe-Major Fraser Holmes. The young piper formed the
New Glasgow High School Cadet Corps pipe band and was appointed its first pipe-major; his
first instructor Pipe-Major Holmes was on the record as saying of him that he "took easily to the
pipes, it was born in him". His mother's family tradition held that he was a descendant of the
storied Blind Piper MacKay, a legendary figure in piping lore a century before the Ship Hector
carried the first Highlander immigrants into Pictou. For all of his life John Sinclair played the
pipes. In the RMC at graduation he was the winner of the Artillery Prize and the Prize for
Military Subjects. He was commissioned in the Permanent Force and posted to "C" Battery of the
Royal Canadian Horse Artillery. Overseas he covered off numerous wartime appointments,
among them chief instructor of gunnery at t! he Canadian Artillery School of Artillery at Seaford,
and later the officer commanding the 8th Battery of the Second Field Regiment RCA in Italy.
Following the war he was in turn on the directing staff of the Canadian Army Staff College,
second in command of the 1-2 Field Regiment RCA and chief gunnery instructor at the Artillery
School at Camp Shilo. After staff college training in Canada and England he was promoted to
lieutenant colonel in 1950, and thereafter until retirement served in staff appointments in Ottawa,
Halifax, England and New Brunswick. When in England during the war he married Barbara
Young, a native of Ireland, who survives him, with three children: a daughter, Susan (Mrs. David
Mitchell) in Kelowna, B.C. and two sons, Dr. Michael, a scientist, and Donald, an insurance
broker, both of Halifax. Surviving also are five grandchildren, a sister, Mrs. Janet Hunt in
Toronto, and a brother Norman C. Sinclair CA, in Saint John, N.B. A memorial service will be!
held in Bradenton, Fla. At a date to be announced there will be a memorial service in the Little
Harbour Presbyterian Church followed by interment of the cremated remains in the Little
Harbour cemetery. Donations may be made to the Salvation Army or the charity of one's choice.

PARKER, Willena Ann "Connie" - Passed away with dignity and grace in Glen Haven Manor at
4 a.m. on May 27, 2002, in her 98th year. Her physical presence will be missed but she will
forever be remembered in the ways she touched so many lives. She is survived by sons, William
Hazen Parker, Dartmouth; T. Robert (Phyllis) Parker, New Glasgow; David H.J. (Barbara)
Parker, Iqualuit, N.W.T.; daughter, Anne (Mark) Miller, Toronto, Ont. As a mother, and as a
grandmother of 12 and great-grandmother of 11, Connie was a remarkable and resourceful
woman. She is also survived by sister, Nance MacGillvary, New Waterford, Cape Breton; several
grandnieces and nephews. Her husband of 51 years, William Alexander and daughter, Constance
Blanche, predeceased her. Connie was born in Mabou, Cape Breton, August 1, 1903, the daughter
of the late Catherine "Cassie" (Wilmot) and Angus O'Connor. In 1913, she travelled to Halifax to
enrole in Sir Frederick Fraser School for the Blind. She thrived in the intellectual environment at
the school where a premium was placed on excellence and on cultural activities. Her studies led
to a lifelong passionate devotion to music and literature. Upon graduation, Connie accepted a
position as music teacher in Sheet Harbour. It was there that she met her future husband, William
Alexander Parker. Once married they moved to Trois Rivières, Que., the young couple developed
close friendships that were to endure for many years after their return to Nova Scotia in 1933.
During the 1940s, their home was always open to young people who, being uprooted by war,
found themselves in Halifax, young people who appreciated music and lively conversation.
Connie and William and their growing family made each visitor welcome. As her children left
home to pursue careers and establish their own families, Connie had more time to enjoy her wide
circle of friends. She especially cherished a reading and discussion group made up of numerous
friends who met regularly over a period of many years. Connie possessed a unique and keen
appreciation of life. She was intelligent and informed and many sought her counsel. She was a
continual source of encouragement and inspiration to her family and those who knew her. When
William died in 1976, she moved to New Glasgow to reside near her son, Robert and wife
Phyllis. She had been a resident of Glen Haven Manor since 1993. Connie was originally raised
in the Roman Catholic faith, however from 1939 until recent years, she was an adherent of the
United Church of Canada and during that time was active at the United Memorial Church,
Halifax and Trinity United Church, New Glasgow. Recently she returned to the Catholic faith.
Connie is survived by grandchildren, Roy, Donald, Ian Parker, Deboragh Miller-Walshaw,
Catherine Parker, Elizabeth "Beth" Parker-Godin, Cassandra (Parker) Benoit, Kyle, Jonathan,
