30 Oct 2020
It is with eternal love that we sent Linda Ann (Campbell) Finnie, Brooks, peacefully on her journey to Spirit World on October 30th, 2020. She had spent her last few days in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the DECH, struggling with lung and heart issues that her body was no longer strong enough to recover from.
Linda was born to loving parents, Doug and Emily (Clark) Campbell of Staples Settlement, NB, 75 years ago on April 28th, 1945. She was the youngest of their six children.
In addition to her parents, Linda is predeceased by the father of her children, Jerry Finnie; special grandson, Michael Finnie; brother–in–law, Lue Chamberlin; and son–in–law, Tom Solomon.
She is survived by and will be forever in the hearts of her three children; Tim Finnie (Wanda), Cindy Francis, and Tina Solomon; brothers Percy (Betty), Keith (Cristal), Gordon (Pat) Campbell; sisters Shirley Marie Chamberlain and Mary (Jack) McKinnon. She will be fondly remembered by her many nieces and nephews. Linda dearly loved her grandchildren; Tracey (David) Kirkpatrick, Austin (Kaley) Paul, Jenny Paul (Aaron), Dillon Francis (Cera), Doug (Janet) Finnie, Tanya (Noelie) Millier, Tom (Kelsey) Solomon, Chad Solomon (Tawnni), and Ryan (Tiffany) Savoie. She referred to her great grandchildren as her “Tiny pockets of gold”, and loved to boast about how beautiful and smart they all are. Daisy, Aura, Abby, Kristina, Caroline, Layla, Hailey, Austin (Charm), (Holden & Evander – great great grandchildren), Mallory, Triton, Dalton, Declan, Carson, Thayowyn, and Madelyn.
Linda worked as a memorable waitress for many years at Keddy’s Motor Inn and the Silverwood Motel restaurants, where she gathered numerous friends. Linda retired as a Personal Home Care Worker, caring for seniors in Kingsclear First Nation was one of her proudest accomplishments. She loved talking with people and was a skilled “Story–Teller”. She enjoyed playing Radio Bingo and was a big fan of Country music. Some of her favourites were Alan Jackson, Brooks and Dunn, George Jones, Conway and Loretta and Marty Stewart, whom she raved about meeting when he was a young boy on Lester Flatt’s tour bus. That story was repeated many times over the years, but everyone knew that Elvis was King in her world. Linda’s local favourite was Joey Knight, whom she loved so much that she kept a framed picture of him on her dresser.
Linda spent her last nine months at Wik–Cihpolakon Senior Home in Kingsclear First Nation. We sincerely want to thank all of the staff for their excellent care. In addition, we remain in awe of the doctors and nurses of the ICU who demonstrated the utmost compassion and dedication to her care until the very end, especially nurses Mel & Marlee.
Due to COVID restrictions, there will be no visitation. Bishops Funeral Home will be responsible for all arrangements should you wish to offer condolences to the family.
Donations can be made to the Staples Settlement Cemetery Fund or a charity of the donor's choice in lieu of flowers.
A private graveside service will take place at Staples Settlement Cemetery on Saturday, November 7th at 3:00pm for the family, where we will share some stories of her unique expressions, laugh at some of her tallest tales, and reminisce about how much we love her.

30 Oct 2020
C’est avec une profonde tristesse que la famille d’Angela Bourgeois de Shédiac Bridge, épouse de feu Blair Bourgeois, annonce son décès survenu le vendredi 30 octobre au foyer de soins Serenacare de Moncton. Née à Moncton en 1932, elle était la fille de feu Albert LeBlanc et feue Claudia Babineau.
Jeune mère au foyer, Angela s’est engagée très activement dans sa collectivité. Elle a été co-fondatrice, cheftaine et commissaire du mouvement diocésain des Jeannettes, une branche des Guides. Elle a occupé plusieurs fonctions au Foyer-École et aux conseils d’administration du YWCA et du YMCA.
Angela était une infatigable défenseure des droits linguistiques, surtout en ce qui a trait à l’éducation en français. Elle a été une des premières conseillères scolaires francophones élues au District scolaire no 15. Elle a mené de chaudes batailles, souvent dans l’ombre, et a joué un rôle instrumental dans l’obtention d’un district scolaire francophone autonome assurant ainsi l’accès à l’éducation en français pour les jeunes francophones en situation minoritaire au Nouveau-Brunswick.
Elle a aussi milité pour les droits des femmes, notamment pour l’avancement de la femme dans l’Église.
Réalisant son rêve d’un retour aux études, Angela a suivi des cours en journalisme qui lui ont permis de mener une carrière remarquable à Radio-Canada et au ministère fédéral des Communications.
Elle adorait écrire et offrait ses histoires et ses anecdotes en cadeau aux membres de sa famille. C’est avec beaucoup de fierté qu’elle a accepté le prix Writing for Children de la Writer’s Federation of Nova Scotia. Aussi, lors des hivers passés avec Blair en Floride, elle donnait de leurs nouvelles dans son « Le Floridien » hebdomadaire.
Angela et Blair formaient un couple exemplaire, aimant et généreux. Ensemble, ils ont su encourager leurs enfants et leurs petits-enfants dans tous leurs projets, qu’ils soient académiques, musicaux ou sportifs.
Angela-Angie-Mim manquera beaucoup à ses enfants, Roland (Renée LaPointe), Céleste (Michel Boulay), Charlotte (Pierre de Villers) et Robert (Angèle Richard); ses petits-enfants, Josée Boulay-Milburn (Josh), André Bourgeois (Matar), Eric Boulay (Dominique), Benoit Boudreau (Bo Yeon), Alain Bourgeois (Maxine) et Adrien Boudreau (Émilie); ses arrière-petits-enfants, Alexandra, Zoé et Louis; sa sœur Fernande (Paul Darraugh), sa belle-sœur Marguerite Bourgeois; l’enfant d’Angèle, Adrian Bourque; les enfants de Josh, Trenton et Maddison Bannister; ses nièces et neveux, cousines et cousins, amies et amis.
La famille aimerait remercier du fond du cœur les préposées de Serenacare pour leur dévouement, leur professionnalisme et les bons soins offerts.
La famille recevra les condoléances au Centre funéraire et de crémation Frenette, 396, rue Main, Shediac le mardi 3 novembre 2020 de 14h à 16h et de 19h à 21h seulement.
En raison de la pandémie, le couvre-visage est obligatoire lors des visites et la distanciation sociale doit être respectée. Une limite de 50 personnes est en vigueur pendant les heures de visite au centre funéraire. Les funérailles privées seront célébrées en l’église La Visitation, 416, Route 530, Grande-Digue le mercredi 4 novembre 2020. L’inhumation se fera au Cimetière paroissial. Les funérailles seront enregistrées et le vidéo sera disponible sur la nécrologie d’Angela sur notre site Web en fin d’après-midi.
En mémoire d’Angela, un don à la Fondation Alexandre Parks (www.alexandreparks.com) serait apprécié.
Les arrangements funéraires sont sous la direction du Centre funéraire et de crémation Frenette, Shediac (532-3297). Des mots de réconfort et des condoléances en ligne peuvent être transmis via notre site Web à: www.frenettefuneralhome.com

It is with great sorrow that the family of Angela Bourgeois of Shediac Bridge, widow of Blair Bourgeois, announces her passing on Friday October 30th at Serenacare in Moncton. Born in Moncton in 1932, she was the daughter of the late Albert LeBlanc and the late Claudia Babineau.
As a young mother and homemaker, Angela generously volunteered her time and energy for the betterment of her community. She was cofounder, troop leader and commissioner of the Jeannettes, a branch of the Girl Guides. She held several positions within the Home and School Association and on the boards of the YWCA and YMCA.
Angela was a tireless advocate of linguistic rights, particularly the right to schooling in French. She was one of the first francophone counselors elected to the board of School District no. 15. She fought hard, often working behind the scenes, and played a major role in the creation of a separate francophone school district, thus ensuring an access to French schooling for children of the francophone minority of New Brunswick.
She also campaigned for women’s rights, notably for an extended role of women in the Church.
Angela fulfilled a long-time goal when she continued her education. She studied in journalism and pursued a remarkable career with Radio-Canada and the federal Department of Communications.
She loved to write and offered short stories and anecdotes as gifts to family members. She beamed with pride when she received the Writing for Children award of the Writer’s Federation of Nova Scotia. During winters spent in Florida with Blair, she would keep friends and family posted with her weekly « Le Floridien ».
Angela and Blair formed a loving and generous couple. Together, they supported and encouraged their children and grandchildren in all their projects, whether they be academic, musical or athletic.
Angela-Angie-Mim will be sadly missed by her children, Roland (Renée LaPointe), Céleste (Michel Boulay), Charlotte (Pierre de Villers) and Robert (Angèle Richard); her grandchildren, Josée Boulay-Milburn (Josh), André Bourgeois (Matar), Eric Boulay (Dominique), Benoit Boudreau (Bo Yeon), Alain Bourgeois (Maxine) and Adrien Boudreau (Émilie); her great-grandchildren, Alexandra, Zoé and Louis; her sister Fernande (Paul Darraugh); her sister-in-law Marguerite Bourgeois; Angèle’s child Adrian Bourque; Josh’s children Trenton and Maddison Bannister; many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
The family wishes to express heartfelt thanks to the staff of Serenacare for their devoted work, their professionalism and the great care offered.
The family will receive condolences at Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, 396 Main Street, Shediac on Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020 from 2 to 4 pm and from 7 to 9 pm ONLY.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Sherwood’s Funeral Home and Life Tribute Centre (506-839-2156), 18 Scovil Road, Norton, NB. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a private visitation and funeral service will be held. Interment will take place at South Branch Cemetery at a later date.

With unfathomable sadness her children announce the passing of Karen Shephard (nee Oldfield) on October 31, 2020. Born in Saint John, on July 21, 1949, she was the daughter of the late Norman and Carol Oldfield (Merritt).
Karen started her career in the traffic department at CHSJ and later worked at Provinco Insurance but her passion was being a stay at home mom to bring up her children. She was known for her cooking skills and loved to host parties- when you went to one of her parties, you knew you were going to eat well!
Her love for her grandchildren was unwavering and she loved them to the moon and back. Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Richard Shephard.
She will be missed by her two loving children, Kevin (Melissa) and Kelley (Randy); her grandchildren: Jonah, Reilly, Josh, Sydney and Camryn; brother, Dougie (Terry); sisters, Dawn and Sherrie (Lance); many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. She will also be missed by her best friend of 52 years, Levern (David) Cochrane and goddaughter, Shelby Stevenson.
Special thanks to Dr. Bone, Dr. Thompson, Dr. Grey, Extra Mural and the wonderful staff and nurses at Bobby’s Hospice.
Arrangements are under the care of Kennebecasis Community Funeral Home, 152 Pettingill Rd, Quispamsis (849-2119). Visitation will take place on Friday, November 6, 2020, from 3:00 to 8:00 PM.
