She is survived by her daughters Susan (Gary) Smith of Whitby, ON., Elizabeth McCoy of Calgary, AB., Florence Berry (Frank Hubley) of Bridgewater, Cheryl (Sterling) Nickerson of White Point, Joan Murphy of Liverpool, April Backman (Leonard Zwicker) of Western Head, Marion (Arthur) Clattenburg of Hunt’s Point, her sons Joseph (Linda) of Liverpool and Charles of Western Head, many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
She was predeceased by her husband Charles “Stanley” , her son Owen, her sisters Elsie and infant Florence and her brothers Rupert, Frederick, Warren and Clifton.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool. A private family memorial service will be held at later date. No flowers by request, donations may be made to Queens General Hospital Foundation or to the Alzheimer’s Society of Nova Scotia. Online condolences may be made to www.chandlersfuneral.com
