Bishop William Edward Power
1915 - 2003
The Most Reverend William Edward Power, former bishop of Antigonish, passed peacefully away, November 29th 2003 at Bethany, Antigonish, where he was in residence, . He was 88, and had served as Bishop of Antigonish from 1960 until his resignation in 1986.
Bishop Power was born in Montreal on September 27, 1915, son of Nicholas Walter and Bridget Elizabeth (Callaghan) Power. After studies at le Grand Séminaire de Montréal, he was ordained a priest on June 7, 1941. In Montreal he was active as a chaplain to the Young Christian Workers Movement (YCW), a movement in which he maintained a lively interest all his life. He held several other pastoral appointments in Montreal, including the appointment as parish priest of St. Jean de Brébeuf Parish. At the time of his nomination as bishop he was Vice-Chancellor of the Archdiocese of Montreal.
Bishop Power was appointed Bishop of Antigonish on May 12, 1960, was ordained a bishop in Montreal on July 20 of the same year, and was formally installed in Antigonish on August 10. He was one of the last remaining bishops in Canada who took part as a bishop in all four sessions of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965). In the years following the Council he was one of the leaders of the Church in Canada in implementing its reforms, serving as Vice-President of the Canadian Council of Catholic Bishops in 1969-1971, and as its President from 1971-1973. He was elected the first President of the Atlantic Episcopal Assembly in 1972, and a representative from Canada to the Synod of Bishops in Rome on evangelization in 1974. He also served as a member of several commissions of the C.C.C.B., including the Social Affairs Commission that produced the major document 'Ethical Reflections on the Economic Crisis' in 1982.
In his service to the Diocese of Antigonish, Bishop Power was active in promoting social justice, the involvement of the laity, pastoral renewal and the ongoing formation of the clergy. As bishop he served also as Chancellor of St. Francis Xavier University, which awarded him an honourary doctorate in 1989, and in 1999 named after him 'Power Hall,' one of its new residences. He resigned as Bishop of Antigonish on December 9, 1986, but continued to serve as diocesan administrator until the installation of his successor, Bishop Colin Campbell, on March 17, 1987. In his retirement he lived at St. Francis Xavier University, until very recently when he took up residence at the Motherhouse of the Sisters of St. Martha at Bethany, Antigonish.
The present bishop of the Diocese of Antigonish, Bishop Raymond Lahey, today paid tribute to his predecessor. He said: 'Bishop Power was a remarkably talented person, both as an individual and a churchman, who put his considerable abilities at the service of the Church and the world at every level: diocesan, national, and universal. His promotion of the role and mission of the laity in bringing the message of Christ into the environment in which they lived was for him a life-long calling to which he never ceased to be devoted. His real enthusiasm for the renewal of the Church advocated by Vatican II and his broad understanding of the work and documents of the Council will never be forgotten by anyone who encountered him. His personal qualities of a deep spirituality, constant good humor, and an enduring hope in God enabled him to leave to us all a rich and lasting legacy.'
Bishop Power is survived by one brother, Kevin (Madelaine), of Halifax, three Sisters who are religious of the Sacred Heart, Sisters Elizabeth and Margaret of Halifax, and Sister Mary of Montreal, as well as a number of nephews and nieces.
Bishop Power’s remains will be received at St. Ninian’s Cathedral, Antigonish, on Monday evening, December 1, at 7:00 p.m., when Evening Prayer for the Dead will be celebrated. The remains will lie in wake in the Cathedral until the funeral liturgy, which will take place on Wednesday morning, the feast of St. Francis Xavier, at 11:00 a.m., with burial in St. Ninian’s Cemetery to follow. On Tuesday evening, December 2, at 7:00 p.m. the vigil service will be celebrated.

WELLS (Nickerson), Eileen Mary "Nicki "

Eileen was motivated during her entire life by a deep love and belief in God and a dedication to serve others in need. The daughter of Jean Creelman and Robert McDougall, she began life as Aileen Agnes McDougall on January 5, 1947, in Halifax. She spent part of her very early years in St. Joseph's Orphanage. At the age of four, she was adopted by Sarah and Edward O'Toole of Halifax. A graduate of St. Patrick's High School and the LPN course at Camp Hill Hospital, she began her lifetime of service in 1968 as a nurse in the surgical and urology units at the BFM Hospital in Kentville. Beginning in 1980 she took a different path and became a Social Worker for the Community of Kings County, with a very large caseload throughout the county. Her focus shifted slightly from the sick to the poor and the disabled. 1994 saw her enroll at Mount Saint Vincent University to study gerontology, from which she was very proud to graduate in 1997. Eileen then returned to her beloved profession of nursing, again with emphasis on the elderly and the disabled. She worked at the Veterans Memorial Building and Abby Lane Hospital at the QEII; Ocean View Manor in Eastern Passage; Wedgewood House in Kentville; Hants Community Hospital and Valley Regional Hospital on the Surgery and Medical Floors. The driving force for Eileen was always her passion for those less fortunate than she. She would often act as an advocate for those who could not advocate for themselves. When Eileen believed in a cause, she would fight hard and relentlessly for what she believed to be right, even when the consequences caused her personal harm. She was always honest and straight forward. The constant volunteer, she was active on many boards and committees. Among others, she was a volunteer at the Flower Cart, New Minas; at Hope Cottage, Halifax; in the Alzheimer's Unit, Veterans Memorial Hospital, QEII, as an advocate for seniors with spiritual, mental or physical disabilities; a member of the steering committee for establishing a Palliative Care Program in the Kentville area in the 1980s; assisted in establishing the first two safe houses for battered women in Kings County; a member of the executive committees for the Municipal Social Services Association for Kings and Western District and the Annapolis Valley Work Activity Centre for the Provincial and Federal Governments. She was a team leader for EMO, Province of Nova Scotia. She also served as Chair of the Central Kings Community Health Board, Chair of the Eastern Kings Community Health Board and Co-Chair of the Council of Chairs for the Community Health Boards of the Annapolis Valley District Health Authority. She was recently appointed by the Honorable Chris d'Entremont, Minister of Health, to the Board of the Annapolis Valley District Health Authority, with a term beginning October 1, 2007. She was predeceased by her mother, Jean Creelman and father, Robert McDougall; her adopted parents, Sarah and Edward O'Toole and sister, Barbara Graves. She is survived by her loving husband, Don; daughter, Johanna Nickerson, Halifax; son, James, (Tanya) Nickerson III, Woodville, Kings Co.; granddaughter of one month, Julia Nickerson; sisters, Joan (Robert) Norris of Lethbridge, Alta.; Catherine (William) Chambers of Dartmouth; Linda (Amedee) Martell of Louisdale; Sheila (Eric) Hennessy of Halifax; brothers, Robert Mason and Father Terrence O'Toole, both of Halifax; stepdaughters, Dr. Valana (Dr. John Rutherford) Wells of Scottsdale, Ariz.; Vanessa Wells, J.D. of Palo Alto, Calif.; Vanita (Mark Della Maggiora) Wells of San Jose; stepsons, Dr. Eric (Evelyn) Wells of Oakland, Calif.; Dr. Barrett (Dr. Kathy Pae) Wells, Glastonbury Conn., and Barton Wells of Palo Alto, Calif., and six other grandchildren. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her and loved her, especially those lives she touched and who benefited from her extreme generosity. In the words of one of the doctors at Valley Regional Hospital, "we will É..find solace in the memory of an extraordinary woman who had energy for life that was infectious to others." Visitation will be held from 7-9 p.m. Friday, October 12, in White Family Funeral Home, Kentville. The funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, October 13, in St. John's Anglican Church, Church Street, Port Williams. Burial will take place in the church cemetery.
