CUMMINS , Moya Kathleen

Passed away on Friday, November 14th, 2014.

Moya Cummins Harp (Feb 10/1948 – Nov 13/2014) Moya Cummins Harp was born in Kells Ireland county Mead on Feb 10/ 1948 and She started to grow up in a small farm house with only the basics. Her Mom and Dad met during the war effort in England and after they married they returned to Ireland, but it was hard for them because the War effort had taken all heavy equipment from their gravel business. Sebastian Cummins “Sam” was very familiar with heavy equipment and pursued an opportunity to immigrate to Canada as a heavy equipment operator. I think Moya said one of his first jobs had to do with cleaning up after Hurricane Haze. He later went on to build a successful earth moving business, during those years Moya became familiar with his work. She was often recruited to round up parts in the middle of the night from Crothers, she could count loads and always knew the size classification of bulldozers. Moya had a go at many jobs, even a season of chasing a singing career. She met many people back in the day of the Blue Note, while she was discretely singing with a band that frequented Buffalo. She is even on two of Bob Seger tracks, as a back ground singer “That's her story and she always stuck to it”. That Album was laid down in Toronto – kind of a last minute production but is most famous today. One day some one close to her asked her if she wanted to starve or have a career and those words finally nudged her in to normal work, but she always had a real love and interest for music. Eventually she answered an add for an Accountant Jack Bloomberg and after an old school interview; she was hired and thrown in to swim, lucky for her, it fit like a glove and she spent the next 40 yrs or so in the industry. One of the more memorable moments was when her client David Allen was shut down and the RCMP showed up with a warrant for the books “The Day of The Black Out” – It appeared they were expecting two sets of books with foreign bank accounts, but they found a very clean and tight set of books. It was suggested she pursue a job with them in the forensic accounting department, maybe she should of. Moya actually has an interesting family back ground, her Cousin Fr. Walsh, who held a high position in the Catholic Church and was the God Driven force behind operation Pedro Pan. She also had a colourful grandfather who severed a year in an Australia Prison for treason, after he wrote an article about the common wealth state, in particular THE HOKITIKA ELECTION ,while being left in charge of the local news paper “West Coast Times”. Over her life she overcame Lung Cancer and dodged several other health tragedies, as well as accident related events.
