The Reverend Samuel Patterson Shields
May 13, 1920 - March 15, 2015
Service Date: March 20, 2015
Service Time: 2:00 p.m.
The death occurred peacefully at the Prince County Hospital on March 15, 2015 of the Reverend Samuel Patterson Shields in his 95th year. Samuel was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland on May 13th, 1920. He was the oldest child of Thomas and Elizabeth Shields. He grew up in Belfast along with 5 brothers and a sister.
His call to the Lord came early and in his late teens he was conducting services in the smaller communities on the outskirts of Belfast, often commuting from his home to the churches by public transit.
His early twenties found him working as a fitter at Belfast’s most prestigious men’s wear store, Robinson & Cleavers. During the blitz bombing of Belfast through World War II, he would spend his nights as fire watchman at the store.
After the war he attended college in Dublin, Ireland where he trained to be a minister. It was there, while attending Grovenor Road Baptist Church, that he met Lylagh Ryder, a soprano in the church choir. They were married in 1948 and spent almost 67 inseparable years together.
As a minister, Samuel served pastorates in Devon & Somerset England as well as Dublin, Ireland. Upon immigration to Canada he served many churches in rural Nova Scotia. His charges included Parrsboro, Debert, Oxford, Kennetcook and Upper Stewiacke. He retired at 65 to PEI to be with family and by the ocean. His retirement lasted about 6 months and soon he was filling in as minister at churches throughout the Island. In his last position he was Visitation Minister at Trinity United Church in Charlottetown, finally retiring at 82.
Samuel had a special gift for helping bereaved families and many who met him under such circumstances remember him for the comfort he was able to provide to them. In 1958 he was at the pithead in Springhill during the mining disaster that claimed 75 lives. He provided grief counseling to many of the miners families. Samuel was a kind and caring person, always willing to help the weak and disenfranchised. As a minister he was ecumenical in spirit, befriending and working with people of all faiths. He chose to lead and not follow.He will be fondly remembered by all whose lives he touched.
Family was very important to Samuel. He was a fabulous father and caring husband.He is survived by his wife Lylagh (nee Ryder), daughter Jennifer (Terry), sons Brian (Sandra) and Eric (Liz), granddaughter Jillian (Shaylor), twin great-granddaughters Kestrel and Larkin, brother Raymond and sister Martha. He was predeceased by his parents, son Niall, brothers James, Tom, Moore, and Clifford.
