Helen Labbe Vuolo, daughter of Bea and Moise Labbe of Gaspe, passed away in Winter Park, Florida on 11/07/2016. She is survived by her son Richard de Montebello, who
now resides in Virginia, brother John-Paul Labbe who lives in Remouski and Edward who lives in Montreal and God knows how many cousins, nieces and nephews. She would have been 92 on April 19th. She loved bowling, dog racing and watching Phil Mickleson play golf. When she was a teenager, she and her aunt went and worked at an exclusive fishing camp in Ontario. One of the patrons she served for 10 days was a famous celebrity. All the other waitresses said to her, "Don't you know who that is? He's a famous writer." My mother admitted that she didn't read English novels and didn't know him. When the son of this famous American writer caught a trout, my mother cooked it for him and he said that she had "a million dollar smile." The writer was Ernest Hemingway. He gave her a $10 tip when he left, which in those Depression Era days was a lot of money.

I take solace knowing that mom is with my father and her family and having a ball in Heaven. Those people really knew how to throw a party!

It is with a heavy heart that I write this announcement about our dear mother Elizabeth Coffin (Betty Stanley), who passed away at Lisaard House Hospice in Cambridge Ontario, on July 15, 2016 after a courageous battle with cancer- not her first fight with this disease. But this fight was long and painful, so seeing her leave us was not as difficult as we would have thought. Yes she will be missed by all who knew her and the world has lost a very generous kind woman.
Jane will take her remains to Gaspe the end of July for her final resting place beside her late husband (Stanford Stanley-1994) Mom has requested no fuss, she wishes to just be laid to rest without a service or viewing, so her wishes at this time will be honored, but please take a few minutes on July 19th to think of her as it would have been her 84th birthday.I know we all have fond memories of her. Terry(Deb), Michael, Jane (Mark, Sarah, Rebecca), Curtis(Stephanie),(Brandon)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a very fine man. Ralph Vibert, 74, died peacefully in hospital on Friday August 14th, 2015 with his loving partner Mabel at his side.

Throughout his lengthy battle with cancer, Ralph never complained but instead helped distract us from the pain of seeing him wither by continuing on optimistically in his polite and humble way; he was a brave gentleman until the very end.

Born and raised in Wakeham, Ralph apprenticed under his father Fred as a machinist and carried on the family business after he was predeceased early in life by his mother Annie (nee Sullivan) and soon afterward by his father. Despite these early losses, Ralph went on to become a much respected and talented tradesman, known throughout Gaspe for his friendly demeanor, for his machining proficiency and—for those who knew him closely—for his lively stories and vivid recollections of the history of Gaspe’s people, places and mechanical things of all sorts—especially old cars. His body failed him but his brilliant mind never did!

Ralph is survived, missed, and lovingly remembered by his partner and best friend Mabel Carter (nee Coffin), her three sons, Mark, Craig (Susan) and Blake, and by his many life-long friends and neighbours.

A celebration of Ralph’s life will be held at Fortin Funeral Home, Gaspe, Quebec on Saturday, September 12, 2015 beginning at 1pm.

Internment of Ralph’s ashes next to his parents’ gravesite in Wakeham will occur at a later date in a private ceremony.

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of a dear husband and loving father Vernon Lewis Coffin after a courageous battle with cancer. Dad died on Sunday, June 22, 2014, at Mississauga Trillium Hospital surrounded by love and in the arms of his family.

He will always be cherished and remembered by his loving wife of 58 years Joan, his beloved children Heather, Dale (Cris), Morgan and Tracey (Dieter). He was also the very proud “Grampy” to Shannon, Leah, Matthew, Nicholas, Jamie, Danielle and Colton.

Born in L’Anse aux Cousins (Gaspe) Quebec, Vernon was the son of the late Herbert and Evelyn Coffin. He is survived and remembered fondly by his sisters Betty, Nona and Evelene and was pre-deceased by his brothers Raymond, Murray and sister Marjorie.

Vernon built an astonishing career in the mining industry where he began as an underground miner at Gaspe Copper Mines and progressed up the ladder with Noranda until he retired after 48 years as Project & Reclamation Director. He then went on to build a successful and rewarding consulting business and was involved with developing several mine projects. His passion and love, however, was admiring his grandchildren as they grew in life and provided endless moments of pleasure and pride.

A service celebrating Vernon’s life was held in Mississauga, Ontario, on Friday June 27. Interment will be held in Gaspe, Quebec at a later date.Donations can be made in Vernon’s memory to the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.

Anyone who knew Shirley would agree that she loved life. Shirley loved to spend time at their trailer on the weekends with her family and enjoyed having annual gatherings with all her friends.  She was a loving mom and wife.
A woman with an amazingly positive attitude a true fighter that was Shirley!  
Always saying “I fought it and won once and I will again.”

 Until we meet again...

I will never say goodbye to you my Father
cause I know this is not the end for us to see each other.
You will only be going to a place where there’s no pain nor suffering.
I am happy for you, for you will be with God.
For now we need to go in separate ways.
I remember how your arms held me and gave me strength.
You were always there to listen, love, and defend me in everything.
You were my very best friend, dad.
You were always proud of me no matter what.
I’m very grateful and proud to call you my dad.
Here deep inside my heart you’ll always be.
I would give up everything I have just to hug you one more time.
I remember the last time I talked to you on the phone, you were so sad.
If only I could turn back the time I would have never let you hang up the phone.
I felt the world stop and my heart stopped beating when they told me you’re gone…….
How I wish I was only dreaming.
Just like the rain; tears fell down from my eyes, I couldn’t speak for a while.
Dad I want to tell you something.
Thank you Dad….
For always listening, caring, and loving me and most of all… giving me life.
The greatest gift God gave me was YOU…….. my Dad…
It’s difficult to let you go but I must…
I must return the gift God gave me…
Till then;
See you in Heaven………

Our dear mother, Rowena Cunning, died in Montreal on Feb. 15, 2011 in her 98th year. Wife of the late Charles Cunning to whom she was married for over 57 years. Born in Gaspe on 27 October, 1913, she was the daughter of Ralph & Winnifred Baker and a great-grandchild of Grammie Eagle & Henry Eagle.

However, she always went back to her home in Gaspe for the summer. Her family has been left with many memories to treasure.

My best friend was taken from us after a year long battle with cancer. 
May she find peace now in heaven with all of our angels that have gone before her.


Remember when you and I would play dress up...we could hardly wait to be all grown up?  I wish we could be kids again.
We had so much fun just being us.  
Remember when we would lay on our backs by the big old rose bush and watch the clouds? 
Remember when we would sit up in your father's truck on Sunday mornings cleaning it,how we would talk about everything we did and everything we would do when we were all grown up?
Remember when we would sit in that old rowboat and play then we would jump in the pool and pretend that we were swimming in the Great Lakes?
Remember when we took your Nana's sugar dish out to the wood shed and ate all that rhubarb until our stomachs were so sore?
Remember when we all played in the old barn up in the hay loft? 
We had so much fun growing up.
Remember fishing in the old brook? Going cross country skiing and sliding on Delbert's hill? How about the Race Track? Remember that?   
Then we were teenagers...we made dandelion wine and beer. Had crazy fun parties in the kitchen. Remember the your Nana was so mad at us because the dogs ate it and we never even noticed?  
We had so many good times back then.
Remember when I told you I was moving away and we promised to each other that we always would be BEST friends? Well your still my best friend and I love you like a sister and just because your "gone away" we'll still be best friends.  I will run through the clouds with you someday just like I ran through the grassy fields with you then. Remember Lillian just remember...I promise.

Life-long companions and soul mates, the couple married on May 30, 1956. They then settled in Sunny Bank, started a family and devoted themselves to their family and friends. Donald worked for 34 years for Gaspe Elementary School where he drove the school bus, and in his later years became janitor. Linda was a homemaker who worked hard at home and gave her endless love and devotion to her family. Together, they enjoyed the simple things life had to offer, like their car drives around the River, their coffee breaks, family gatherings, vacations and holidays. They were always seen together wherever they went.
They leave to mourn their three children: one daughter, Krista (Earl Assels), and two sons, Lowell (Heather) and Blake (Nadine). Loving grandparents to Jaime, Erin (Shawn), Darcy (Ashley), Jonah (Annick) and Dayna. They also leave behind their siblings, many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Funeral services were held on March 24, 2010 for Donald, and May 7, 2010 for Linda, followed by a private burial for both on May 8, 2010 at York Cemetery.
They will be sadly missed by all that knew them. May they rest in peace together, forever.

Why did you chose to die?
You left no note and me with why?
You thought you were doing what was best and right.
Why, oh why, did you have to end the fight?
Your pain is something I will never understand.
You must have been so afraid to take this stand.
You left me with a title I am sad to attain.
Suicide Survivor, but who should I blame?
I know your decision was painful to make.
The thoughts in your head
Must have been unbearable to take.
Now that you're gone, I think of you a lot.
You couldn't have known the suffering this has brought.
I pray you are at peace my Angel, and I am in pain.
I count the minutes to Heaven and seeing you again.

I can honestly say Dad now I understand why…
You lived all those years with that guilt and pain
and we all just thought you were shy…
when there really was someone else actually to blame.
Someone who took something from you…
Something that could never be returned.
But God will see to it, that from this
We will all learn…

You loved life that’s plain to see…
As you were always among the wildlife and trees…
Nature was what kept you going day by day right to the end
Watching nature’s innocence and new life begin.
Yes, I believe that is what helped you right to the end

The end and change was something you never liked…
Ending a phone call, a visit or even a fight
No you never liked the end.
So this is why I had trouble to figure all of this out…
But now I feel without a doubt…
This was not the end…
Some day we will all be together once again...

Patterson, Maynard H. "Pat" Age 93, of Roseville died on May 20 after a brief illness. He was a lion of a man who will not be forgotten by any who knew him. Maynard was born on February 24, 1916, in a remote village of Gaspe, Quebec. His father was a woodsman and fisherman, and the family used a horse or dogsled for transportation. Maynard excelled in everything he undertook. After his father's untimely death when Maynard was 7 years old, he earned his keep with relatives during the summers by tending their gardens, where his hard work and attentiveness made him a welcome visitor. Upon taking his first fulltime job as a messenger boy at AT&T headquarters in New York in order to support his mother and sister, he was quickly promoted to page in the office of the president who, impressed with his young employee's acumen and diligence, arranged for Maynard to receive a full scholarship to Lehigh University. Maynard never forgot that gift, passing it along to others whom he assisted in obtaining education or employment. After earning his B.S. in metallurgical engineering, he was employed by Crucible Steel Company, where he supervised the forging of battleship gun barrels and other critical ordnance. In his later years, he reminisced about the romance of this job more than any other. He soon joined the U. S. Army as a Second Lieutenant. Rising to the rank of Captain, he served at the Philadelphia Ordnance Depot, distinguishing himself as chief of the Tank-Automotive branch, responsible for production and shipping of tanks for the European theater. His commanding officer thought so highly of him that he convinced Maynard to come to work for him at Canadian Durex Abrasives in Brantford, Ontario after the war as chief engineer and Secretary. When Durex became part of Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing, Maynard became Vice President, General Manager and Director of 3M Canada. During the 25-year span of his 3M career, Maynard rose to the position of Vice President and General Manager of all 3M international operations. He was elected to the 3M board of directors in 1965. He traveled extensively throughout the world, exploring market opportunities and opening 3M subsidiaries in 14 countries. At the time of his death, he was the last living person to serve in an executive capacity with 3M founder William McKnight. Maynard retired from 3M in 1971 and with his wife, the former Irma Lanterman, built his dream home on Big Bass Lake in northern Minnesota, where they lived until 2006. A passionate outdoorsman, he knew every inch of his woods, where he hunted grouse and deer. Maynard was an avid fisherman, a sport he and Irma enjoyed together for many years. (Irma would like to add that she always outfished him.) He made annual fishing trips to Canada with Irma, son Bruce and friends Dan Peterson and Boyce Hardy, stocking the family freezer with walleye and northern. Maynard was also an accomplished cabinetmaker, furnishing the lake house with many beautiful and finely made pieces. His mind was as active as his hands, driven by an ongoing curiosity about world events, new technologies, and the behavior of the fauna and flora inhabiting his property. In addition to Irma, Maynard is survived by his sister, Audrey Mullison of Charlotte, NC; daughter, Donna Long; sons, Brian (Denise Wilder), Steven, and Bruce (Mari Zarcone); grandchildren, Douglas Patterson, Becca Justiniano, David Long, Jeffrey Patterson, and Alexander McHugh; and four great-grandchildren.

Dear Nanny (Pauline {coffin} Patterson)

Nanny you were the greatest women I've ever met. You were loving, caring, compassionate and everything everyone should be. No one could have ever met you and not had you touch their life in a warm way. I can't imagine life without you, I know I have too now that you are gone, but I cant seem to grasp the idea of it. I would be ever so lucky to be even half the woman you were. You brought so much joy to my life and happiness and that alone makes me a better person
I love you Nanny, you will forever be in my heart, I love you so much

Larry was creamated and on date which would have been his 3rd wedding anniversary August 27 2008)the family gathered to release his ashes into Lake Ontario knowing his love for fishing these were his wishes.

On Friday, October 10, 2008, Jill, beloved wife of Herbert for 61 years,
ascended into the welcoming arms of her loving parents Napoleon and Odile (Hamon) Thibault of Barachois, Quebec. Also waiting for their beloved sister were her brothers Vincent (Rose), Yvon (Judy), Henri (Marg), and
Donat (Lily). Jill was the much-loved mother of Jackie(Theresa) and the adored grandmother of Jean-Paul and Jesse. Remaining to celebrate her life are Jill’s sisters Raymonde (Ernest) Jean, Rolande (Ernest) Sarrazin, Yvette (Fortunat) Poirier, and Rita (George) Hayes and her brother Hilaire (Judy). Jill was the loving aunt of many nieces and nephews, a beloved in-law to many brothers and sisters, and a faithful friend to many people in her neighbourhood. Jill fought a valiant battle against cancer, but as the pain became too great to bear, “God saw she was getting tired, and a cure was not to be, so He put His arms around her and whispered, “Come with Me”

My sincere condolences to all the family of Aunt Ruby. I was sad to hear of her passing, she gave me many wonderful memories of her, I still hear her rich chuckle. She was always so kind to me, and I loved her for that. I remember visiting her so often as a child with my mother. My mother loved her and I was lucky enough to spend time with her as a kid to feel that love. I had the pleasure of staying with her when Nan was home there years ago, it sure took me back, it was a real treat to experience the close friendship those two women had. She was easy to talk to, she was always so understanding. I have missed her for a long time and now that she is gone I'm sure Gaspe will miss her too! Rest in peace, Aunt Ruby.

I am very sorry to hear of the passing of Wallace McAfee. I remember when he and Nelson Phillips worked at the rink at Farewell Cove in the winter. They worked very hard to keep the snow off and the ice flooded. Wallace was always friendly even when the shack was crowded with a noisy teenagers, and he would even come out on the ice once in a while to play goalie for us.
I remember him even more,when a few years later, we worked at the Gourmet Salmon Lodge on the York River. Wallace and Ada were incredible, cooking and feeding the guides as well as cooking and cleaning for the guests. It all seems like yesterday, sitting at the guides table in that tiny kitchen with Doug and Steven and Jack and Whitney and Frank[my Dad]. It didn't matter how hot it was in there Wallace never looked or acted frustrated. He always had a joke and was always fun to be around.
God Bless
