"Leaves are falling all around, it's time
I was on my way. Thanks to you, I'm
obliged for such a pleasant stay," (Ramble
On
by Led Zeppelin). These words and
music accompanied Brian as he joined
the council of the gods of the universe
on Feb. 15, 2014 on his 64th birthday.
Born in Campbellton, NB he became
one of Mount Allison University's most
ardent alumni. He cherished his time
at Mount A where he met his life mate,
Shirley. They made Nova Scotia their
home, where they proudly raised son
Rob (Natasha) and daughter Avery ('12).
Brian's role as a grandfather to Hunter
and brother to Cheryl has been cut
short. His circle of family and boundless
love extended well beyond bloodlines.
Farming, construction, energy auditing
with the Province and privately, home
inspection, and real estate were the tip
of the iceberg of his careers. He lived his
passions reducing untold tons of carbon
emissions from our atmosphere, a tes-
tament to his love for the world. His joy
of life was infectious, inspirational, and
will be greatly missed by family and so
many friends.

Lila Gwendolyn Morehouse Quigley ('33),
of Sandy Cove, NS, passed away on Dec.
1, 2013, with her four children at her side.
Born in Springhill, Gwen was the daugh-
ter of Dr. Frederick Garland Morehouse
(LLD '34), and Clara Blanche (Parker)
Morehouse. Gwen graduated with a
Bachelor of Arts in Education. After mov-
ing to Halifax with her family, she un-
dertook further studies. She worked for
several years at the synod office of the
Church of England prior to her marriage
to Dr. Hadsel Gordon Quigley in 1940.
During her later years, she enjoyed visits
from her far-flung family and friends.
She celebrated her 100th birthday in
Sandy Cove, and participated fully in
the festivities, attended by so many. This
past year, she was thrilled to be the fam-
ily Matriarch at the Morehouse Family
Reunion.

Bob MacDonald, former alumni presi-
dent, passed away on Mar. 13, 2013, af-
ter a long struggle with Alzheimer's, but
more importantly after a long and hap-
py life with his family and many friends.
Bob came to Mount A in 1951 from Flor-
ence, Cape Breton, and the magic that is
Mount A stayed with him all of his days,
as evidenced by his association with the
alumni, his frequent presence at football
games and his Mount A license plate. He
earned a BA in 1955 and a BEd in 1956
and was equally at home playing hockey
and singing in the choir.
Bob married Jessie Cameron ('57) and
they went on to teach in Gaspe, Que-
bec City, and Ghana. They then returned
to Nova Scotia where Bob worked as a
teacher and administrator for the Dart-
mouth School Board until his retirement
in 1990 to Sherbrooke, NS, where he and
Jess were busy with community organi-
zations, notably the rink which was built
through Bob's legendary fundraising
skills. Their four children and eight grand-
children think of him always with love
and pride; his daughter Martha MacDon-
ald ('82), and granddaughters Lucy Niles
('12) and Ellen Niles ('17) remember with
fondness his happiness as they chose
Mount A.
For Bob, as for so many, Mount A was
more than an educational experience
-- it was a way of thinking, a lifetime of
friendships, and a home to return to.
