NICKERSON, Jean Olive (November 16, 1919-June 3, 2005)
The family of Jean O. NICKERSON are saddened to announce her tragic accidental death on the highway outside Bridgewater, Nova Scotia on June 3. Jean was the second child of well-remembered parents, Hubert and Freda (COX) NICKERSON of Liverpool, Nova Scotia Jean is survived by her sisters Mary (Walter McCOWAN) and Dorothy (Dr. Blake O'BRIEN;) and her brother Dr. Granville NICKERSON (Mary Louise LOCKETT); and sister-in-law Barbara IRWIN. She was predeceased by an infant sister Catherine, her nephew Granville, and recently her brother Ronald. Jean was a great favourite of all her nieces and nephews; Lynda and Ian (McCOWAN) David, Sheila and Jeanie (O'BRIEN;) Hugh, Scott and Kent (NICKERSON) Kate and Sarah (NICKERSON;) David, Marnie and Janet (REID.)
Jean was born at Cape Sable Island but grew up at Liverpool, Nova Scotia From earliest childhood her teachers noted that she was idealistic, an extraordinarily bright student. Upon graduation from high school, Jean chose nursing as a calling and graduated from Saint John General Hospital in 1942. Throughout her life she served her patients with uncompromising compassion and dedication. After her graduation Jean worked in the medical office of Dr. J.C. Wickwire at Liverpool, who, recognizing her unique abilities encouraged her to study medicine. Nevertheless, Jean was determined to bring her talents to nursing. Shortly after the opening of the Queens General Hospital at Liverpool, Jean held concurrent multiple positions as Radiologist and Lab technicians as well as receptionist in the Emergency Department. The hospital was distressed to lose her presence and talents when she left to attend Dalhousie University for a diploma in Public Health. She then served in Edmonton, Toronto and Ottawa as an Industrial Nurse, and finally in the Nova Scotia Public Health Department. One of her nursing associates observed, "Jean was literally a pioneer in so much of her work".
In 1992, during the celebration of Canada's 125th year of Confederation, The Hon. Ramon John Hnatyshyn Commemorative Medal was conferred on Jean O. NICKERSON in recognition of significant contribution to compatriots, community and to Canada.
Personally, Jean was a jolly person and enjoyed humour. She had a great facility for Friendships; both children and the elderly adored her. Compassion was the hallmark of her nature. Following our Lord's example, the hungry, the needy, and the elderly frequently benefited from her anonymous generosity.
Jean retired to Bedford, Nova Scotia, enjoying the natural beauty and people of that lovely community. Chronic arthritis plagued her later years whereupon she became a resident of The Berkeley at Bedford. Life is tragic but Jean lived her life heroically.
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.
Cremation has taken place. There will be no public memorial service at the request of the deceased; a private family service will be held at the graveside in the family plot at the Congregational-United Cemetery, Liverpool. Memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Arthritis Society or a charity of one's choice.

BLAKE, Beatrice May
At the age of 95 and in complete peace, May BLAKE passed away on October 19, 2005. May was care-giver extraordinaire to many children who remember her fondly and with love throughout their adulthood. She was trained as a nanny in England and joined her first family as a caregiver as a young teenager, no older than 15. She emigrated to Canada about 1932. Throughout her early years as a nanny in Canada, May befriended and looked out for other British nannies who would come to Toronto on two-year visas to care for the children of Canadian families. May brought them into the community of other nannies, made sure that they became acquainted with Toronto and sent them home again at the end of two years with farewell parties.
The adults for whom she cared as children and that she called "her charges" owe their values of honesty, integrity, generosity towards others and good humour to her teachings as they grew from infancy through childhood into eventual maturity. May was always proud of the achievements of "her charges" and followed their successes in life, sending congratulations their way and still providing advice as they made their path through life.
May has been a staunch supporter of Saint Margaret's Anglican Church for more than 70 years. Up until two years ago, she was a regular supporter of Saint Margaret's annual Christmas bazaar and rummage sales. She was a frequent visitor to the sick and shut-ins of her congregation. May BLAKE's life was a happy and fulfilled one.
May will be fondly remembered by her many Friends at her Church, including Muriel CAESAR, Len and Jean SOUTH, Trevor and Muriel McCONNELL and Jean FRASER.
She will also be lovingly remembered by "her charges" currently living in Canada, Edward BULMAN and his sister Elizabeth, Nadine, Jon and Paul LEVIN, Sean and Kalen McCOWAN, Denise DELLIO, and Alexandra and Laura ROBINSON. Jean SHAWN, George LEVIN, Anna JOHNSTON (formerly McCOWAN), Perry and Rae DELLIO, Michael ROBINSON and Dr. Gail ROBINSON, and all remember the fine and loving care May BLAKE provided for their children and the tremendous contribution she made to their family life.
Those who wish to celebrate May BLAKE's life may join together at Saint Margaret's Anglican Church, 53 Burnaby Boulevard, Toronto on Monday, October 24, 2005 at 1 p.m. May loved children all of her life and donations in her memory to Save the Children Canada, 300-4141 Yonge Street, Toronto M2P 2A8, would be greatly appreciated.
