George Seviour

Date de décès : 16 mai 2018

Dr. George R. Seviour, aged 92 years, has passed away peacefully with family at his side on Wednesday, May 16, 2018. Treasured and devoted husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend, George was cherished by his wife Alice Seviour, daughters Catherine, Susan (Bill) and Jane, grandchildren Sara and Gregory, and many nieces and nephews. He will lovingly be remembered by his brother Jim, sister Margaret, sister-in-law Marie and the Tobin family. Predeceased by his brother Bob, sister Mary, and infant son George Richard. George is fondly remembered as an irreplaceable member among his close circle of friends; comprised of The Lang’s, Power’s, Thompson’s, Collins’ and William’s. George began his impressive academic journey in his hometown of St. John’s Newfoundland; graduating in high standing from St. Patrick’s and St. Bonaventure College in the early 1940’s and then again from MUN in 1946 with a degree in Pre-Engineering. He then ventured to Nova Scotia, earning his degree in mechanical engineering. George brought his expertise to various mills in Montreal, Shawinigan, South Carolina and Grand Falls-Windsor but after several years in the engineering field, George bravely followed his heart and went to Queen’s University Belfast, Northern Ireland and earned his medical degree in 1963. It was within the following 41 years of service as a family physician that his instinct of compassion could truly be felt by his community. Whether he was waking early to bring new life into the world or staying late to tend to a patient, his devotion was strongly valued by those around him until his retirement in 2005. But above all, his love for his wife and three girls was insurmountable, and his legacy of kindness and grace lives on through them and their many high achievements. The family would also like to extend immense thanks to Judy Miller for her gracious care given over the past three years and to the staff at Saint Patrick’s Mercy Home, especially the recreation and music therapists, for the exceptional role they played in bringing much joy to his life. Visitation will be held at Caul’s Funeral Home, Lemarchant Road, on Friday May 18 from 11-9pm. The Funeral Mass will be held at St. Pius X at 1 pm on Saturday May 19 and all are invited to the reception to follow at St. Pius X Parish Hall. Flowers gratefully accepted or a donation to the charity of your choice.
