The death of Lloyd Elwyn Neill, age 89, husband of Blanche (Morrell) Neill, of Springfield, NB, occurred at the Saint John Regional Hospital, on Tuesday, September 8, 2009. He was born on October 7, 1919, in Hatfield Point, NB, the son of the late John and Dorah (Wetmore) Neill.
Gramps greatest gift in life was his family. He met the love of his life at Short’s Store, Hatfield Point. They courted when he was on leave from the army, married and started a life together that was 66 years strong. He worked in his father’s mill and was a licensed surveyor. In 1948 they bought a farm. Lloyd drove school bus for 30 years and as he would say it, “I hauled all the kids in the family to school”. Many children got off that big yellow bus safe and sound. Sometimes he even carried them through the snow banks to make sure they were safe at home. He was also an active member of the Belleisle Valley Fire Department.
Nan and Gramp were not only parents to their boys, they were grandparents and great grandparents to all those little feet and smiles that passed through their doors daily. Whether it was to hear a story, to get a sucker or cookies or some of Nan’s famous orange juice (even the big kids).
He loved his grandchildren dearly and was so proud of them all and was never too shy to tell them. Kisses and Hugs were freely given on a daily basis. As every little bundle came into his life, they would always venture into the living room to swat the crystal pendants on the chandelier. Gramp had a very sweet tooth and Nan would try to keep him out of the chocolates at Christmas time, but she did not always succeed.
He is survived by sons Wayne Neill and Ivan and Marj Neill, both of Springfield; grandchildren Vance and Denise Neill, Mike and Shari Neill, Naomi and Jeff Martin, Ginny and Mike Sherwood; great grandchildren Sarah and Connor Neill, Sean and Peyton Neill, Owen, Hayden and Emma Martin, Jill, Ryan, Megan, Jackson and Logan Sherwood; sister Agnes and Carl Clinton of Vernon, BC; several nephews, nieces and cousins. Lloyd was predeceased by brothers William, Ernest, Raymond and Fred; sisters Stella and Grace.
Gramp will be dearly missed by all, especially by his family, and all the hearts he has touched in his lifetime.

It is with heavy hearts and great sadness we announce the death of our beloved mother, wife, grandmother, and friend ---Donna Gallagher. She died peacefully surrounded by her family, at the Sussex Health Centre, on September 20, 2009, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
Mom fought this terrible disease for almost 17 years with grace and dignity. She won many odds over the years and truly amazed those who knew and loved her. She was the strongest person we have ever known and we are so proud of her. Donna was always more concerned with the health and well-being of her loved ones than herself. Mom was so selfless. She would go without in a heartbeat to help others. She is our hero.
Mom was born in Stewarton, NB, on June 26, 1942, the daughter of the late Henry and Lavinia (Dickson) Taylor. Her true passion in life was caring for her family. She loved her flower gardens and her beloved little four-legged friend and companion “Willie”. Her pride and joy was her special grandchild, Jared, whom she was so proud of. Mom was a kind and gentle lady who never had a negative word to say about another. She was a true confidant and friend. She will be terribly missed and forever loved.
Donna was a loyal servant of Jehovah God for over 46 years. Her unwavering faith in the resurrection to life on a paradise earth where she would finally be free from illness and pain gave her the strength to endure her illness for so many years. (John 5:28, 29 Revelation 21:3, 4). We will see that beautiful smile and those big brown eyes again when we are reunited in Paradise. Until then she sleeps in Jehovah’s memory and there can be no safer place to be. Farewell to our special little lady. Rest peacefully until we meet again.
Donna is survived by her loving husband of 48 years Gregory; her son Carl and Noreen of Belleisle Creek; daughters Debbie and David Losier of Grand Bay-Westfield and Lisa Gallagher of Sussex; grandsons Jared of Sussex and Billy Mercer of Bloomfield Ridge; brother Alan and Muriel Taylor of Manitoba Road. She was predeceased by two brothers Gordon and Stewart.
