MEADUS Albert Ernest Passed peacefully away at the Health Sciences Centre on May 22, 2020, Albert Ernest Meadus “Bert”, formerly of Grates Cove. Predeceased by his parents, Jack and Winnifred Meadus; and his father-in-law, Harold Ronayne Sr. Leaving to mourn, his partner of 25 years, Maria Ronayne and her children, Tina and Chris Walsh; his sons living in Calgary, Alberta: Craig (JeriLee) and Brett (Amy); Poppy’s precious grandchildren: Brodie, Hayden, Avery, Luke and Skylar; his two sisters: Louise Mansfield (Len) and Lillian Bursey (Richard) and their families: Dana and Stacie Mansfield, Melissa Healey, Brad and Greg Bursey and their children. Also mourning his loss are the Ronayne Family: mother-in-law, Catherine Ronayne; Harold (Eleanor), Cathy Condon (Alfred), Marlene Walsh (Chris), Karen Bond (Glen Maher), Paul (Phyllis), Stephen (Wanda) and Deanne Dunphy (Rick) and their families; as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Special thanks to Dave Dufort (next door neighbour) and Jeff Vokey (Maria’s nephew) who were eager to do anything and everything for Bert that he wanted done. He thought a lot of both of you and appreciated all that you did for him when he couldn’t do it himself. Bert was a long-time employee of both the Provincial and Federal Public Sector Organizations and established his own business, AEM HR Consulting, where he provided consulting services to many Government Departments (both Provincial and Federal), Municipalities, Boards, Agencies and Unions (NAPE and Nurses’ Union). At the time of his illness, he was still working part-time with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. He loved his work and enjoyed immensely the contacts he made along the way, especially his DFO colleagues. Bert had many interests but he was an avid bowler throughout the years, and played in NAPE league and Seniors League at Plaza Bowl. He was so happy when JeriLee came along as she was a bowler as well – now he had someone who understood and appreciated what he was talking about and he followed all of her tournaments in Alberta. Above all, Bert loved his time at his cabin in Ocean Pond and the visits to St. Pete’s Beach, Florida where he soaked up the sun and the view of the water and enjoyed visits from his boys and their families. It was certainly his happy place. A memorial service will be held on May 27, 2020 at 2:00 pm. Due to restrictions imposed by Covid-19, this will be streamed.
