It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Allison Lewis Henry, which occurred at the Moncton Hospital on Saturday, September 12, 2020 at the age of 84.
Allison was a lifelong resident of Salisbury, NB and an upstanding member of his community, which was reflected in his volunteer firefighting in his younger years. He was an avid gardener and enjoyed reaping the benefits of his harvest, only after a summer spent at his cottage in Shediac, NB. Those closest to Al will remember his amazing storytelling and his wonderful knack for telling a joke.
He worked with CTV Atlantic for over 30 years; a job he loved and took great pride in, especially in his coverage of the 1988 Calgary Olympics. He held great affection for his work family, and they for him, often calling him “Big Al”. He was also a cherished member of The Victory Life Centre, Riverview, NB.
His most treasured joy in life was his family; Katherine, his loving wife of over 60 years; their sons Mitchell (Denise) of Moncton, NB, David (Kim) of Halifax, NS, and Jeffrey of Moncton, NB; grandchildren, Alexis, Morganne, Rebecca, Madison, and Colton; great-grandchildren, Ava, Jesse, Xavier, Rileigh, and Michael. He is also survived by his brother, Mark Henry of Moncton, NB as well as several nieces and nephews.
Allison was predeceased by his parents, Harold and Vivian (Lewis) Henry, and his brother, William Henry.
Arrangements in care of Salisbury Funeral Home and Crematorium (506-372-4800). A private family memorial will be held in the coming days. Interment will be in the Elgin Cemetery, Elgin, NB.

Maura Lee Heffernan, aged 58, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her son Connor and family, on September 11, 2020. Maura was born July 11, 1962 in Moncton, NB to Brian and Lois (nee McMenamin), who predeceased her. She moved to Fredericton in 1971 and set down strong roots within the community and among her many valued friends.
Maura loved her family. She found great pleasure in their trips and adventures, and had a great passion for games. You were likely to find her sitting at the kitchen table playing board games or a highly competitive round of cards. She loved to travel with Connor and looked forward to each summer’s escapade to the Nova Scotia Tattoo and PEI adventures. Evenings fires were great fun in Maura’s backyard where they would draw the day to a peaceful close. Her passion for sweets will be remembered through her carefully crafted recipes which will be handed down for generations to come.
Maura’s life was devoted to giving to her family and was never wanting more than she needed.
Maura is the loving and devoted mother of Connor Harrigan. She is survived by her son, her brother and his wife Gerry and Mary, her sisters and their husbands Kathy Martin (Murray - deceased), Mary Beth (Bep), Jane and Bruce McKenna, Erin and Alan Andrews, her nieces and nephews, her aunt, Lorraine Fox and her uncle, Peter Heffernan.
Maura wanted to extend her personal thanks to her son’s father, Paul, a long time family friend, who showed great support to them both over the years and during her recent illness. She also wanted to extend her thanks and deep gratitude for the care she received and compassion extended to her by the Staff of Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital (Oncology and Palliative Care), to her friends and family who visited and cared for her, and to those who called. Your words and presence were of great comfort.
There will be no visitation. Maura’s final wishes were to be laid to rest with her parents in the Hermitage Cemetery, in Fredericton, where a grave side service for family and invited friends will be held.
Arrangements are in the compassionate care of Chipman Funeral Home & Crematorium (339-6612). Memories and condolences may be shared through www.chipmanfuneralhome.ca.
