Suzanne and Neiff Joseph

This week Maritime Magazine celebrates the writings of a woman who was a born storyteller...but whose tales never really made it outside her own family and friends.

Suzanne Plunkett Joseph was from Bridgwater, Nova Scotia. She died recently after a long battle with cancer.

One of her greatest gifts was to see the humour in every situation, a gift for which her family and community were grateful.

In honour of her - and Thanksgiving - Gordon Pinsent reads from her work, titled, "Occasionally Mrs Plunkett."
