Maisie Bernice Hudson

The family of Maisie Bernice (Ells) Hudson are sad to announce her passing
at Grand View Manor in Berwick on October 29, 2015, at the age of 95. She
lived most of her long life healthy and happy beside the sea, raising her
family first in Baxter¹s Harbour, Kings County, then Victoria Beach in
Annapolis County. Born on September 5, 1920, in Baxter¹s Harbour she was the
daughter of Fred and Bessie Ells.

A woman of strong and determined spirit, she will be lovingly remembered as
a caregiver to many, a wonderful cook and provider. Maisie could conjure up
memorable meals from seemingly nothing for unexpected crowds, and her
homemade bread and baking was a much-welcomed food source to hordes of
family, friends, and strangers. Her many handmade quilts are scattered far
and wide, and their warmth and comfort will continue to remind family and
friends of special memories.

Maisie was employed for several years on the maintenance staff at CFB
Cornwallis, a position which she was proud to hold. She developed and
embraced camaraderie with both military and civilian personnel and made
long-lasting friendships with co-workers.

In Memory of
Frederick Henry Camsell
July 13, 1935 - October 15, 2016

Frederick Henry Camsell (July 13, 1935 ­ October 15, 2016)

Died peacefully in his sleep in Vernon, BC. Born in Hay River, Northwest
Territories to Harry and Polly Camsell (nee Carter), both deceased.
Pre-deceased by sister Carol, brothers Denny, Thomas, Bobby, and Ernie.
Survived by his long-time partner Sandra Jo Sutton and her daughters Renee
and Frances, his sisters Margaret and Maisie, and brothers Doug and Terry.
Fred was married in 1959 in Clinton, ON to Elizabeth (nee Joyce) who now
resides in Port Wade, NS. They have four children, James Camsell (Janet),
St. John's, NL; Leah (Paul) Elzinga, North Bay, ON; Jennifer Camsell (Dan
Campbell), Beaver Bank, NS, ON; and Sarah Camsell (Paul Richards), Windsor,
NS. He has three grandchildren - Michael Camsell-Elzinga (26), and Rowan (6)
and Ewan (3) Campbell. Fred joined the Royal Canadian Air Force 1952 as a
Radar Technician and retired in 1990 as Base Chief-Warrant Officer, CFB
Chilliwack, BC, serving in many bases and stations across Canada during the
Cold War. He worked for Frontec in Cambridge Bay, NU as the site supervisor
from 1990-1995 and then as a commissionaire in Lumby, BC from 1995-2013. He
lived his final days with Sandra Jo and a large circle of friends, and
continued his outdoor pursuits including canoeing the Mackenzie River with
his brother Terry from Fort Providence to Inuvik (1000 miles in 25 days) in
2009. Known to be a poor driver who owned many dated vehicles which would
embarrass his children and friends alike, Fred was an avid hunter and
fisherman who made numerous friends across Canada and was known to like a
good scotch or two at the campfire. He was a member of the Inuvialuit Trust
­ the Inuit of Canada's Western Arctic. Fred had great wit and humour, and
was a strong crib player and curler. He was renowned for his knowledge and
story-telling of the North, and was very proud of the Camsell family's role
there since 1869. He will be missed by many nieces and nephews, and
long-time friends. Fred's life will be celebrated at the Legion (2016 Miller
St.) in Lumby on November 8, 2016 from 2-5 pm. Fred's ashes will be interred
with his parents in Hay River in the summer of 2017. In lieu of flowers,
donations to the Legion Poppy fund would be appreciated.
