Visitation was held at Adams Funeral Home Ltd., 140 King St, Miramichi, on Monday, from 2-4 & 7-9 pm.  Funeral service was held from Adams Funeral Home Chapel, on Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2018, at 2 pm, conducted by Rev. Charlene Maguire MacKnight.  Music for the service was provided by Mrs. Joanne Wiseman and the hymns were "Shall We Gather at the River" and "Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross" and the recessional hymn was "God Be With You Till We Meet Again".
