  • Crowds Gather to Pay Last Respects to Nevaeh Denine

    Purple and yellow balloons were everywhere in the Goulds today as a long line of mourners paid their last respects to a young girl.

    Nevaeh Denine lost her battle with cancer on Monday, but she created a lasting legacy. At an early age, she was diagnosed with neuroblastoma—a rare form of cancer. She started the largest lemonade stand in the province, raising thousands for children with cancer. Family members say the lemonade stand will continue.

    Emotions were flowing as hundreds of people gathered to witness the funeral procession, and visit St. Kevin’s for Nevaeh’s funeral.

    People turned out in all kinds of vehicles including classic cars, transport trucks and trailers.

    St. Kevin’s Parish Priest Father Jeff Kolonel says we have all learned much from Navaeh.

    He says her lemonade brought people together, and Nevaeh was a good teacher for her age. The parish priest said she was cheerful and joyful.

    People are asked to display something yellow today in memory of the nine-year-old.

    Colourful Displays Pay Tribute to Nevaeh

    This week, displays paying tribute to the young girl appeared around the province, with people placing yellow and purple decorations outside their homes and businesses.

    Premier Dwight Ball says the province will also honour the legacy of Nevaeh Denine.

    Tonight, the Confederation Building will light up in yellow.
