Ms. Stephanie Patricia North
June 20, 1979 - October 10, 2007
NORTH, Stephanie Patricia - 28, Dartmouth. It is with great sadness and broken hearts that we share the news that the beloved daughter of Alan North, Halifax, and Trish (Davidson) North and stepfather Kevin Shoebridge, Halifax, passed away Wednesday, October 10, 2007, at home. Stephanie was larger than life and possessed an incredible spirit of generosity. As we remember Stephanie, words like the following come to mind: charming, brilliant, radiant, sparkling, caring, fun-loving, witty, happy, energetic, leader, compassionate, stylish and beautiful. With a sparkle in her eye and her dazzling smile, Stephanie would instantly light up a room. To know Stephanie was to love Stephanie. Her education began at Sir Charles Tupper School and most recently included studying philosophy at Dalhousie University where she was on the Dean's List. Stephanie had dreams of pursuing a career in law with the desire to help the under privileged and less fortunate. A highlight of her education was a year abroad as a Rotary International Exchange Student in central France. While growing up, her love of music led her to study the recorder and the violin. She also enjoyed dancing, figure skating and swimming. As an award winning Realtor with A & H GMAC, she had a gift for turning clients into friends. Stephanie herself was a precious gift. Those who were privileged to be in her presence will carry her spirit in their hearts always. Stephanie is survived by brothers, Geoffrey (Jessie), Chicago, and Matthew, Halifax; sister, Kimberley, Halifax; grandparents, Donald and Lena Davidson, Debert/Truro; uncles, David North, Halifax; Frank (Linda) Davidson, North Carolina; cherished niece, Katie, Chicago; goddaughters, Desiree and Amelia, Charlottetown, and numerous cousins. She was predeceased by grandparents, Murray and Margaret North (Halifax), and uncle, Greg North (Halifax). Cremation has taken place.

June 22, 1920 - March 17, 2010
Jack Andrew, age 89, of Three Mile Plains, Hants County.
It is with heavy hearts we are saddened to announce the passing of our loving father who passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 17th, 2010, in the Hants Community Hospital, Windsor, with his family by his side.
Born almost ninety years ago in Horbury, England, on June 22nd, 1920, he was the only son of Stanley and Alyce Andrew and a doting older brother to his sister, Mary who predeceased Dad at the age of three.
Dad joined the Royal Navy at the young age of eighteen serving on destroyers and then submarines throughout the Second World War. Upon leaving the service as a decorated veteran, dad found his forte in interior design while living in London, England and subsequently was offered jobs with Laura Ashley and Disney. After a three month trek in the Artic, dad moved to Montreal where he met our mother, Ruth who became his loving wife of fifty-two years. Moving to Ontario in 1957, they started their family and later decided to settle in Nova Scotia where dad would have a long successful career in kitchen design, a career he retired from at the age of seventy-two. Dad was a member of the Hants County Branch No. 009, Royal Canadian Legion, Windsor and the Submariners Association of Canada. A man of great integrity, he always put his family first and his loyalty was evident in his life long friendships. He loved to travel and saw most of the world, but his happiest moments were with his loved ones at a simple barbecue, spending time with the family pets or a day on the beach. We will miss him terribly and will always hold our cherished memories close to our hearts.
Jack is survived by his wife, the former Ruth Moore; daughters and cherished son-in-laws, Lynette (Gary) Daniels, Windsor, Victoria (Rick) Wilnoff, Ellershouse; Jacqueline (Mike) Mosher, Three Mile Plains; grandchildren, Ian, Sarah, Jaclyn; great-grandchildren, Dylan, Kayla, Nicolas and Shaden.
Cremation has taken place under the care of Lindsay's Windsor Funeral Home, 194 King Street, Windsor.
There will be no visitation by request.
As requested a private family service will be held at one of dad's favorite spots in Green Bay at a later date.
Donations in Dad's memory may be made to CNIB.
" Our family extends heartfelt thanks to the doctors and nurses at the Hants Community Hospital for their tremendous compassion and support"

She worked in government service, enumerating for elections and product demonstration. These positions suited Louise well, a people person at heart.

A special thank you to Marian Crane and Geri Butler, who through their care and kindness extended Louise's independence and provided opportunities for many social adventures.
