Kathleen (Kay) M. Harper 1913 - 2005 Kathleen (Kay) Harper, 91, formerly of North Street, passed away peacefully in the presence of her family on Tuesday, January 11, 2005, at the Kenneth E. Spencer Memorial Home in Moncton. Born in Saint John, N.B., on November 9, 1913, she was the oldest daughter of the late Humphrey J. and Sarah (MacLaughlin) Sheehan. Kay graduated from nursing school in Saint John and nursed there for almost 10 years. In 1943, she married Royden Harper of Hillsborough, N.B. The first three of their eight children were born in Saint John and in 1947 they made their home in Moncton. Kay was devoted to her husband and children and the love for her family was extended to include her many relatives, friends and neighbours. Having had wonderful memories of growing up in Saint John and Loch Lomond, Kay continued to create fond memories for her children during the years in Moncton, New Glasgow and especially at their summer cottage where she was always remembered by the phrase, "There's no place like Caissie Cape!" Kay will always be remembered for her great love of music. Her boundless optimism, warmth and acceptance of others touched the lives of everyone she met. She is survived by her five sons and three daughters, Greg (Tina), Moncton, Paul (Rachelle), Moncton, Don (Buffy), Windsor Junction, NS, Brian (Evie), Rome, Italy, Dr. Bill (Lorraine), Moncton, Anne (the late Tony Kokic), Halifax, Eileen (Roger) Pierce, Hubley, NS, Kathleen (Stephen) McGill, Aurora, ON. She is also survived by her two dear sisters, Mardi Gormley and Eileen Bardsley, Saint John; five sisters-in-law, Dot Sheehan, Fredericton, Elinor Sheehan, Saint John, Helen Harper, Dot (Larry) Bauer and Laura Day of Moncton; one brother-in-law, Claude Harper of Montreal; 22 grandchildren; two great grandchildren and many nephews and nieces. Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Royden in 1982; brothers, Jack (Judge John Sheehan), Gerald and Maurice. Special thanks to the care workers who lived with Kay on North Street, the staff at McNair's Manor in Riverview and especially the staff at Spencer's Memorial Home for their loving and compassionate care of Kay during her last years. Visiting hours will be held from Cadman's Funeral Home, 114 Alma Street, Moncton on Thursday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9. The Funeral Mass will be held at St. Augustine's Roman Catholic Church on Friday, January 14, 2005 at 11:00 AM, with Kay's nephew officiating Msgr. Father Brian Sheehan. The interment will take place at the Grand Digue Catholic Cemetery at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer's Society.
