1939 – 2020
Norm “Indian Jack” Richard, 81, of Moncton, passed away on Friday, July 24, 2020 at the Dr. Georges–L.–Dumont. Born in Lewisville, he was the son of the late Laurie and Estelle (Melanson) Richard and the step–son of the late Blair Babineau.
If anyone lived life to the fullest, it was our Dad. From the golf course, the ball field to the hockey rink, the social time with friends and teammates after a game were just as important as the final score. Dad and Mom held countless pool parties, Roadrunners get–togethers and family reunions in “Lower Lewisville”. Every trip to the grocery store or to the Market took twice as long as he knew everyone and everyone knew him. He could also be found most days playing cards at the Press Club or the War Vets Club. He loved pulling pranks on friends and family. One of his most endearing qualities was his sense of humour.
His pride and joy were his children, grandchildren and most recently his great–grandchildren. He loved to spend quality time with them as well as keeping up to date on their daily lives whether it was a new motorbike or a first tooth.
Dad was a member of the Moncton Roadrunners Hockey Club, the Moncton Sports Wall of Fame (Moncton Schooners, Lewisville Jr. Keefe Cubs) and Baseball NB Hall of Fame (Lewisville Jr. Keefe Cubs). He was a long standing member of Lakeside Golf and Country Club and a life long member of the United Commercial Travelers.
The family would like to express our deep gratitude and thanks to Sue for bringing such joy and happiness to our Dad over the past two years.
He is survived by one daughter, Krista Richard of Moncton; two sons: Brent (Patti) of Riverview, and Bobby (Linda) of Moncton; four grandchildren: Breanna (Jérémie), Joshua, Jeremy, and Tyler (Amanda); two great–grandchildren: Gabriel and Samuel; his special friend, Sue Gallant of Moncton; two sisters: Jeannette Melanson (Byrne) of Shediac, and Andréa Chappell of Moncton; one brother, Paul of Vernon, BC; as well as his nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents and step–father, he was predeceased by his wife, Barbara Ann Richard (2016).
The family will receive condolences at Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, 88 Church Street, Moncton (858–1900) on Tuesday August 4 from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 pm only. Due to the pandemic, face coverings are required for visitation. By request, there will be no funeral service.
In memory of Indian Jack, a contribution to the N.B. Heart and Stroke Foundation or to a charity of the donor’s choice would be appreciated. Words of comfort and donations may be made at www.frenettefuneralhome.com

It is with great sadness that the family of Joan Perry (nee. McIntyre) announce her unexpected passing on July 28, 2020. Born on March 5, 1933, in Saint John, NB, she was the daughter of the late William and Katherine (Higgins) McIntyre.
Growing up in Saint John, NB, Joan (and her twin) was the second born of four daughters and attended St. Vincent's Catholic school and Mount Carmel Academy. She had a wonderful childhood spending many summers in St. Andrews, performing with her sisters at various events and participating in various outdoor activities. While working at the bank, she met Ken and married at the Cathedral in Saint John in 1960. Life eventually took them to Fredericton where they raised their three children and were married for 58 years.
Joan experienced many health issues throughout life but nothing took away from her resilience and determined spirit and she always managed to bounce back. Her love of her family gave her strength to overcome just about anything in life. Her kindness to others was always present and she would give people the clothes off her back and sacrifice herself first. Many people in Fredericton would know mom as "the candy lady". She would always have a supply of Werther's candies to hand out to strangers in exchange for a simple smile and to brighten their day. She always had a kind word and a compliment for everyone she met. As her mother told her, and she always believed throughout her life; "it's nice to be nice".
Joan will be greatly missed by her family; children Diana Cybulski (Dan), Patricia Scott and Brian Perry (Kellie); grandchildren Bradley Scott (Angela), Vanessa Pugh (Brad), Matthew, Michael and Anderson; great-grandchildren Amelia, Perrin and Rosalee; sister Peggy Bridge, sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law; Audrey Arsenault, Marjorie (Ron) Johnson, Johanne (Barry) Rowan, Al (Pat) Poirier, Norma Arsenault and Louise Poirier. as well as several nieces, nephews and special cousins Bobby and Brian Higgins.
In addition to her parents, Joan is predeceased by her husband Ken Perry, twin sister Shirley O'Connor and sister Kay MacDonald, son-in-law Paul Scott, brother and sisters in law; Bruce MacDonald, Jack O'Connor, George Bridge and Lloyd (Henrietta) Poirier, Ruth Perry, Leo Poirier, Ray (Marg) Poirier, Evelyn (Gordie) Godfrey, Elaine (Fred) Dale and Ernie Arsenault.
The family would like to thank Debbie and Hugh for their kindness and friendship over the years.
By request, there will be no visitation. A memorial service will be held for immediate family only.
In lieu of flowers, please just tell your family how special they are and how much you love them, as mom did every single time. Online condolences can be made to www.mcadamsfh.com.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Moonyeen Gertrude Doucet (Staples). Moonyeen died on July 28 at the Shannex Parkland Nursing Home in Milledgeville, Saint John, NB. Although a long-time resident of Saint John, she was born in LaTuque Quebec on June 13, 1935 to her parents, Alden Staples and Kathleen Bonenfant of Quebec. She graduated from Saint Vincent’s High School and subsequently Mount Carmel Academy where she graduated with a focus in Business.
She is predeceased by the love of her life, the late François Regis Doucet to whom she was married for 65 years. Moonyeen was a mother not only to their 9 children and family pet Caissie, but equally a loving and caring Aunt to more than 40 nieces and nephews. She was a faithful friend, a respected confidante and an excellent homemaker. A person with an incredible capacity for compassion, she made her friends a part of her family throughout her life and carried her memories of times she shared with them until the end. She could share laughter and empathy and could always be trusted to support her extended family through their trials and tribulations. Her greatest personal passion was as a lifelong avid reader. Finally, she loved to embroider – many family and friends were the recipients of her work. Always maintaining that everyone was welcome to her hospitality, she and her husband, spent decades of summers welcoming family and friends to their cottage in Cap Lumiere (Richibucto Cape) for lobster, family reunions and parties. She took enormous pride in her well-developed family recipe book and was always delighted to share with all those she welcomed.
She is survived by her daughters: Carmen Gibbons (Dana Gibbons); Celia Doucet-Clark (Doug Clark); Kathleen Anderson (Daryl Anderson); and Karen Doucet (Ed Bordun); and by her two sons Regis Doucet (Gisele); and Bernard Doucet as well as her friends Yvon and Bella Arsenault, whom she loved and regarded as her own son and daughter. Further, she is survived by her grand-children Marley Anne Gibbons (Lucas Kitchen), Dr. Sophia Halassy (Kevin Piper), Leah and Sara Anderson. Moonyeen was born into a family of 11 children and leaves to grieve her brothers - Richard Staples (Lorraine), Butch Staples (Lynn), Bob Staples (Cindy) and sisters Mary Ann Ladd (Ross), Jean Bernard (Jacques), Sandra MacDonaugh (John), Beverly Taylor (Harry) and Kathleen Lavallee (Lewis - deceased).
She was predeceased by her husband Francois Regis, her sons Maurice and Richard and her daughter Denise Marie Macavoy. She was also predeceased by her parents, her brothers Eric Staples (Robina), Bobby Staples and sisters Shirley McCarthy, Jean Staples.
She wanted to express her sincere appreciation for the many years of support and caring that she received to the entire staff at Shannex Parkland in Millidgeville where she resided for the last several years, for their professional care and loving kindness.
Arrangements are under the care of Castle Funeral Home, 309 Lancaster Avenue, Saint John, NB E2M 2L3, 506-634-1701. Due to COVID-19 a Celebration of Moonyeen’s life will be held at a later date.
