It is with great sadness that the family announces the death of Stirling Lloyd Nickerson, age 73, husband of Marilyn (Hoyt) Nickerson of Queenstown, NB, on Friday, February 7, 2014. He was born in Saint John on December 5, 1940, the son of the late Lloyd and Ethel (Lyon) Nickerson.
Stirling was born in Saint John on December 5, 1940. His first ten years of life were spent growing up on his Grandfather Lyon’s farm in Armstrongs Corner. In 1950, he and his family moved to Queenstown, ahead of the expropriation of land for Base Gagetown. In 1958, he attended Sussex High School where he met the love of his life, Marilyn Hoyt. They married on July 4, 1964. He always liked to joke it was Independence Day, the day he lost his independence. He graduated from Technical School in 1966, and worked in Industrial Instrumentation in Dalhousie, Lake Utopia, and Saint John. He became a Dad during these years to Shelley, Wendy and Terry, who in years to come provided him with the grandchildren he loved so much – Kara, Cody and Rylan.
In 1979, he finally realized his life-long dream when he moved to Queenstown to become a full-time farmer, and he never looked back. He embraced the hard work that was involved and was never happier. He loved Queenstown and the people who lived there and tried to be available whenever help was needed.
He was a busy man, and had many interests, like beekeeping, playing cribbage and learning to play the fiddle. Just last week, he donated plasma, his 176th donation of blood products. He was treasurer of Base Gagetown Historical Association and an associate member of the Royal Canadian Legion. He was treasurer of the Queenstown Baptist church. He was a former member of the Eastern Charlotte Lion’s club and a current member of the Jemseg Lion’s Club, where he passionately promoted fundraising for The Imagination Library (http://ca.imaginationlibrary.com).
Oh how he loved his music- variety shows, benefit shows, Gagetown fair, church, dances, weddings and funerals. He so enjoyed his time with The Queenston Trio, Three Point Hitch, and The River Singers. Another dream was realized when he was able to join the gospel group, Living Water.
Thank you all for your love and support during this difficult time.
He is survived by his wife Marilyn; son Terry and Kristie of Regina, SK; daughters Shelley Nickerson and Wendy Peters both of Lincoln; grandchildren Kara Allen, Cody Peters, Rylan Nickerson; brothers Gerald and Jean Nickerson of Queenstown and Gregory Nickerson of Fredericton; sister Joan and Frank Henderson of Saint John; several nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by brothers David and Allan and sister Mary.

The death of Esther Irene Long, age 89, of Snider Mountain, NB, widow of Eslie Long, occurred at the Sussex Health Centre, on August 8, 2013.

NS, Walter and Coni Long and Frank and Diane Long both of Nanaimo, BC; daughters; Luella Crosby of Halifax and Arletta Long of Sussex; 24 grandchildren Diane Belding, Patti, Bert, John (Tanya), Danny (Megan) and Martin (Vanessa) Long; Andrew (Sanaz) and Jeffrey (Shawnee) Johnston; Greg (Stacey) Long, Cheri (Craig) Sooley, Tara Long, Tara (Neil) Cooke, Scott (Michelle) Hachey; Elisabeth, Joel, and Tyson (Laurissa) Crosby; Melissa (Perry) Brulotte, Josh (Alyssa Zado), Andrew and Adam Long; John (Krista) Stobart, Julie; Jared (Tanya) and Peter (Ellen) Simpson; 32 great grandchildren Nathan and Toni McFarlane; Annie Riach; Ashley Guptill, Gabriel Long and Tyson Berry; Tyler Murphy, Jamie and Colin Long, Katie Woolfe; Aynsley, Cassidy and Caleb Long; Jasmine, Lara, Lane and Isabella Johnston; Cassandra, Brittany and Cullen Long; Zak and Rachel Sooley; Charleigh Long-Hernandez; Rohan and Riley Cooke, Joanna and Rachel Daley; Isaac and Jacob Crosby, Ben Stobart, Thyler and Ryder; sister Jean Edgar of North Carolina; brother-in-law Curtis Stanley, Kiersteadville; several nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by daughter Elizabeth Johnston; sons-in-law, Ernie Crosby and Richard Simpson; grandson, Ryan Crosby and sisters Helen Nutter, Doris Stanley and Arlene Stanley and brothers-in-law Harold Nutter and Gordon Stanley.
Esther was born in Kiersteadville, New Brunswick on September 2, 1923. She was the middle child of five daughters of Albert and Neta (Walker) Edgar. She attended school and church in the community. Her father farmed and sold produce at the Saint John Market and in later years built rental cottages along the beach area now known as Pirates’ Cove. Esther spoke fondly of her life on the Belleisle Bay and recalled quick dips in the water between chores and mentioned skating across the Bay to attend church at Hatfield’s Point.
In the mid 1930’s a young man from Snider Mountain struck out for Sussex in search of work. He was picked up by Mr. Edgar, who needed a hired man. This young fellow noticed that one of the five daughters was good at doing every imaginable chore (washing milk things, milking cows, raking hay, picking strawberries, gardening, cooking, cleaning, entertaining, crocheting, quilting, sewing) and patiently waited for her to get old enough to marry him. They married on September 20, 1941 and shared exactly 63 years and 4 months as husband and wife and raised a family of six children. Esther was known for her ability to play checkers and crokinole and for making peanut brittle and pancakes.
In the 1960’s Esther began transporting her children to and from school and working in town at housecleaning during class time. Later she worked at the Sussex Cheese and Butter in the retail department until her arm developed tennis elbow from scooping too much ice cream. Being a life-long learner, in 1976 she enrolled in Technical School in Moncton where she studied upholstery. She continued to work at this trade well into her 80’s when she would tell people who called "Since my 80th birthday, I’ve been trying to cut back." Eslie was always proud of Esther and her accomplishments and thanked my grandfather for giving him first pick of his daughters. Esther often recalled Eslie telling her prior to his home-going "You have no idea how much I love you."
Esther had a strong bond with her children, grand-children, and great-grand children and continued to recognize them and hand out some words of wisdom even in her final hours.
Esther was a member of Snider Mountain Baptist Church and attended W.M.S. She also loved attending Beulah Camp. Esther was looking forward to seeing her Lord and Saviour and being reunited with her loved ones. She was quoted as saying recently in her hospital room "How Beautiful Heaven Must Be!"

The death of Frances Patrea Francis, age 81, of Hampton and formerly of Apohaqui, occurred at the Dr. V. A. Snow Centre, on July 7, 2013. Fran was the wife the late Frederick H. Francis. She was born in Hampstead on December 3, 1931, the daughter of the late Nelson and Jennie (Jensen) Eveleigh.
Fran life’s work was to help others. She was involved in many aspects of any community where she lived. As a founding member of the Apohaqui Lower Millstream Recreational Council, she worked tirelessly for the village from the reconstruction of the Centennial Hall, to organizing supers, banquets or any task at hand. She was involved with Church of the Ascension ACW and always made sure her young family attended Sunday services and Sunday School. Norton Legion Branch #76 and Greenwich #87 were another of her passions that consumed much of her time. She never seemed to tire of helping whether it was the Greenwich Gems Seniors or with her friends and co-residents at Hillcrest or any other cause she took up.
Fran was well known for her cooking. From making hundreds of bottles of pickles and preserves annually to more than a ton of fruit cakes for the MS Society to 37 pies for a community supper, nothing in the kitchen was a job too big. You could not just stop in for a visit without Fran insisting you have a snack which would be nothing less than a full meal.
But most of all was Fran’s love for her family. The word family was nothing short of a cause that deserved all her focus and energy. A quality that has inevitably been passionately passed onto anyone that was privileged enough to know what truly made Fran "tick". Worthy of mention and praise was the care and love Fran passed onto her family members late in their lives.
Fran is survived by her sons: David Francis, Doug Francis and Debbie Rainer and Dwight and Debbie Francis all of Hampton; 8 grandchildren: Kris, Sarah, Donna, Robb, Martha, Matthew, Joshua and Amy; 14 great grandchildren; daughter-in-law, Dolores Francis of Fredericton; sister, Pauline and Daryl Sullivan of Winsor, NS; sisters-in-law: Mildred Bundy and Marion Francis; Uncle Roy Pope; several nieces, nephews and cousins; special friend Marg Hachey. She was predeceased by brother, Bob Eveleigh; sisters: Elaine Ferris and infant sister Joan.
The family will receive visitors at Sherwood’s Funeral Home and Life Tribute Centre (506-839-2156), 18 Scovil Road, Norton, NB, with visiting on Thursday, July 11, 2013, from 12 to 2 pm, followed by funeral service in Sherwood’s Chapel at 2:00 pm., Interment will take place in Riverbank Cemetery.
Donations in memory of Fran may be made to the Dr. V. A. Snow Foundation or a memorial of your choice.

The death of Arthur Camp Black, age 88, of Cambridge-Narrows, occurred at his residence on Thursday, January 29, 2009. He was the husband of the late Evelyn (Pugsley) Black. Arthur was born on February 18, 1920, in Cambridge, the son of the late Frank and Susie (Camp) Black.
Arthur Black was a kind loving man that lived a blessed life. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and friend. He was a hard worker who had a passion for nature and animals; he had a particular fondness for horses. He was a simple man who loved simple things, and would never back down from a challenge. He was determined and always saw the positive in everything. But his true love in life was his family and friends. Nothing pleased him more than company! He loved to sit and look at the lake, admire the view and talk about things past and present. Arthur has always been a resident of Cambridge. His parents wanted him to go to school to become a teacher–he had other ideas, and to secure that aspiration he flunked out of public school so he could go to Agricultural School. At the age of 20, Arthur married his life long partner Evelyn on December 18th 1940, and became a proud father of Gordon in 1941 and two years later welcomed Donald to the family. In 1967 the three of them became partners in the farm. In 1976 they sold the farm and Arthur continued working the family homestead with Evelyn. Over the years he was an early member of the local volunteer fire department, a member of the Knights of Pythias, a member of the First Cambridge Baptist Church where he served as a Deacon for over 60 years, also a Sunday School Superintendant and teacher, and Arthur was head of the cemetery Committee. Arthur and Evelyn enjoyed many years together and saw many milestones and lots of changes, but in 2004, Arthur bid Evelyn farewell and at the head of their final resting place it states “until we meet again”. "Now they have been rejoined once again."
He is survived by sons Gordon and Barbara and Donald and Marlene all of Cambridge-Narrows; grandchildren Stuart and Sheila Black, Gregory and Maureen Black, Dianna and Danny Boudreau and Margaret Ann Black; great grandchildren Dylan Black and Jordan Boudreau; sister Ethel and Gerald Smith of Lower Cambridge; niece Marie and Ronald Perry; and great niece Dawn Perry.
He is resting at First Cambridge Baptist Church, MacDonald’s Corner, NB. with visiting Sunday from 2 to 8 p.m. Funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, February 2, 2009. Interment will be in the adjoining cemetery.

Special thanks to Pat Hughes, his caregiver and close neighbours, as without their help he would not have been able to remain in his home alone in later years.
