    We regret to advise of the death of Wylie G. MacLellan of Economy NS on 4 October 2006 in his 82nd year.

    Wylie was a lifelong resident of Economy, only leaving the town to serve in the Royal Canadian Engineers during the Second World War.  He saw action in Belgium and Holland, and as part of the occupation force in Germany. After the war, Wylie returned to his farm that stretched from the shore of the Minas Basin through to the Cobequid Hills. He initially raised a dairy herd, but later switched to raising beef cattle.  He as quite active in the community.  He was a member of the United Church, the Economy Fire Brigade and the Cobequid Branch #72 of the Royal Canadian Legion where he had recently received his 60-year pin.

    A service of remembrance will be held at the Economy United Church on 7 October 2006 at 2:00 PM and burial will follow in the Economy Cemetery. The family would appreciate donations in Wylie’s memory be directed to the SPCA, the Economy United Church any charity of one’s choice.
