In addition to her husband, Raymond, Margaret is survived by her children: Hubert Harrington (Marylou DelVasto), Sandra Harrington, and Tracie Harrington; sisters, Sandra Wetmore and Donna Short; sisters-in-law, Elizabeth MacKenzie and Doreen MacKenzie; and several nieces and nephews.

1939 - 2020
With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Judith Shawn McMaster (Perry) of Riverview NB. Born January 29th 1939, Judy was the youngest daughter of the late Spurgeon and Lillian Perry (Herrington).
She was predeceased by her husband, William J McMaster and her sister Glen Flemming.
During 25 years of service with BMO, Judy enjoyed meeting and helping customers and to this day is recognized and fondly remembered by many from her bank days. Leisure activities included years of camping with the little trailer (especially at their favourite site at Headquarters in Fundy Park) until finding the perfect spot in Meadow for their cozy cottage. Judy loved picking berries for her homemade jams and jellies, making pickles and salsas, playing Bridge, outings with the Chocolate River Cuties Red Hatters, Canasta with the girls, and discovering treasures at her favourite store. Born with two green thumbs, Judy took pride in her beautiful flowers and prolific vegetable gardens and loved sharing her extensive gardening knowledge.
Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis robbed Judy of her independence and mobility, leaving her dependent on oxygen to survive, but not her enthusiasm and zest for life. Judy continued doing the things she loved long after her diagnosis with grace, dignity and determination.
Judy leaves behind her daughters Shelley Steeves (Bruce), Stuart and Emily; Cheryl Thomas (Stephen DeLong), Daniel and Lexi; Tammy Doyle (Patrick) Ellen and Carole and her son Daron Thomas (Debbie), Kyra, Yosef, Meron and Lily. She will be dearly missed by her sister Elizabeth (Diddy) Martin, brother Jon Perry (Anne), nieces, nephews, numerous friends and her special friend John.
Heartfelt thanks are extended to the staff on 5100 at the Moncton Hospital and Lakeview Manor for their loving care, compassion and kindness to Judy and her loved ones.
The arrangements are entrusted to Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 330 Whitepine Road, Riverview (869-2007).
Donations to The Friends of The Moncton Hospital Foundation would be appreciated by her family. Online condolences may be expressed at www.cobbsfuneralhome.ca
A garden bed you tend with care, grows blossoms thick for all to share.
In bursting bud or flower fair, sweet smelling rose that scents the air.
Where flowers grow beyond compare, I’ll feel your love and linger there.

1919 - 2020
Osias "Pepere" Bastarache, age 100, entered into eternal rest on October 22, 2020 with his family at his side. He was born on December 17, 1919 to the late Zoel and Suzanne Bastarache in Saint-Maurice, New Brunswick, Canada. After serving in the Canadian Army from 1941-1945 in St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, Osias made his living as a lumberjack.
In 1957, he and his wife Mae moved to Stratford, CT where Osias worked as a carpenter for the better part of his life. 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.
In addition to his parents, Osias was predeceased by two brothers and four sisters.
The family has elected to have a private service in the US. The Adzima Funeral Home was entrusted with arrangements. To leave an online condolence, please visit www.adzimafuneralhome.com.
Donation in Osias’s memory can be made to Lunchbox Grandpa/Pépére Boîte à Lunch Inc. by sending it to 152 Rte 530, Grande-Digue NB E4R 5J7 or communicating with Ron at (506) 866-9424.
