He was an extremely hard worker, and even after he retired in his late 80’s, could still be found in one of his children’s homes or businesses repairing or building something. He did not slow down until his 95th year. He was a force of nature with boundless energy, strength and determination much to the amazement of friends and family.
Osias was immensely proud of his French-Canadian roots. He loved Hockey, Boxing, Baseball, eating poutine rapee and driving with Mae to visit family in New Brunswick. Family was his life and his gentle demeanor, kindness, harmonica melodies and selflessness will be forever missed.
Osias is survived by his loving wife of 67 years, Mae who tirelessly and compassionately took great care of her husband in their home during his later years. He is also survived by his devoted and dedicated children; daughter Muriel Conforti and her husband Michael, sons Clarence and his wife Donna, Raymond and his partner Barrie and Mark and his wife Julie. He is also survived by his two grandsons, Mark and Matthew Conforti, two granddaughters, Christy Bastarache and Dana (Bastarache) Roiter and her husband Jon, two great-granddaughters, Ali Simone and June Rosie Roiter, as well as several nieces and nephews.

Grande-Digue, N.-B. – À sa résidence avec sa famille à ses côtés, le mardi 27 octobre 2020, à l’âge de 90 ans, est décédé paisiblement Laurie Hébert. Né à Grande-Digue, N.-B., il était fils de feu Évariste et de feu Mélina Hébert (née Léger).
Laurie a débuté sa carrière comme mécanicien d’automobile, ce qu’il a fait pendant plus de 25 ans. Il a terminé sa carrière en 1994 au sein du ministère du transport de la province du Nouveau-Brunswick à titre d’inspecteur de véhicules. À sa retraite, sa passion pour les violons s’est transformée et il s’est appris à en fabriquer. Ce passe-temps lui a permis de peaufiner sa technique et bâtir des violons de qualité. Plusieurs de la région ont pu profiter de ses talents comme « violoneux ». Il appréciait de belles soirées en musique bien entouré. Il laisse en héritage à ses enfants et petits-enfants, cette passion pour la musique.
Laurie manquera beaucoup à sa tendre épouse de 62 belles années, Laudia Hébert (née Babineau) ; ses enfants : Jean-Guy (Marie-Thérèse) de Sainte-Marie-de-Kent, Roland (Claudette) de Grande-Digue, Charles (Jennifer) de Connecticut, É.-U., Louis (Joanne) et Francis (Nadia) tous les deux de Grande-Digue ; ses petits-enfants : Denis, Martin, Luc, Nadine, Stéphane, Maryse, Mélanie, Pierre, Éric, Jean-Marc et Monica ; ses arrière-petits-enfants : Mila, Laurence et Élyse ; son frère et ses sœurs : Adrien (Dora) de Shediac, Annette Léger (Ralph) de Dieppe et Doris Caissie (feu Normand) de Grande-Digue; ainsi qu’à plusieurs, nièces et neveux.
Outre ses parents, il fut précédé dans la tombe par ses frères et sœurs : Viola, Anida, Germaine, Bernadette, Rita, Pierre, Wilfred, Yvon, Éva-Mai et Odule.
En raison des directives actuelles sur la pandémie, toutes les personnes qui assisteront aux visites seront tenues de porter un masque.
Les visites auront lieu en la Chapelle Funéraire Passage à Shediac Bridge, le samedi 31 octobre 2020, de 9h à 11h.

It is with profound sadness the family announce the passing of Mary Louise (Cairns) McConaghy, in the 86th year, after a two and a half year courageous battle with cancer. Louise passed away peacefully at her home in Quispamsis on Tuesday October 27, 2020, with her family by her side. Louise was born on August 7, 1935 in Lower Freetown, PEI. She was the daughter of the late Georgie and Scott Cairns.
Louise was the beloved wife of Donald McConaghy for almost 60 years. Beloved mother of Scott (Mary Ann) McConaghy, Shelly McConaghy Hagerman, and Sharon (Andy) Kerr. Loving Grandmother to Brennan, Annika, Brianna, Samantha, Kayla and Adam. Dear Sister to William Cairns and Amy Borys. Sister-in-law to Vernon Miller, Rev. William McDowell, Douglas Ferguson, Gerald (Penny) McConaghy, Shirley (Ted) Pierrepoint, Stan (Lois) McConaghy, and Joanna McConaghy and many nieces and nephews.
Louise was predeceased by her parents, sisters Winnifred McDowell, Helen Millar, Georgina Ferguson. Brothers-in-law John and Thomas McConaghy, Peter Borys, Louis Scott and sisters-in-law Muriel Scott and Helen Ann Cairns.
Louise loved Prince Edward Island and spent time there every year after her marriage in 1960. In 1974, Don and Louise purchased a cottage in Gunnings Shore (Malpeque Bay) and after that she spent the entire summer on the Island with her children. After Donald retired, they stayed there for six months and the Island was their second home.
Louise also spent time on the Miramichi River, where she became a very good fisherlady catching many Atlantic Salmon over the years. She also enjoyed the winter months in Florida where she made many friends.
When on the Island, Louise attended Trinity United Church in Summerside and took part in many of the activities held there.
Louise enjoyed curling and was a member of the Summerside Curling Club in the fifties, and in 1958 was the first stone on the rink that won the Maritime Mixed Curling Bonspiel. After moving to Fredericton, she was a member of the Capital Winter Club and won many trophies over the years.
Louise was a lifetime member of Beta Sigma Phi for over 57 years and enjoyed very much the many friendships she made along the way.
Louise was a devoted wife and mother to her children. She enjoyed having them visit and when the grandchildren arrived she loved having them stay with her as they gave her great joy.
She also enjoyed entertaining friends and relatives with big dinners and social events.
She will be remembered as a strong, confident, beautiful lady who looked much younger than her years. Louise instilled to her children and grandchildren the importance of education and always putting family first. A resilient lady of great faith, she was loved and respected by all. She will be dearly missed.
Resting at Ferguson Funeral Home and Chapel, 351 Main St, O'Leary, PEI due to COVID-19 restrictions, visiting hours and funeral to be held on Friday in the Chapel for family and invited guests only. The service can be viewed on funeral home website Friday at 2pm. Interment to follow in the North Bedeque Cemetery.
