It is with deep sadness that the family of Nancy Frayle of Westfield, Queens County announces her passing on Feb. 3, 2022 at the age of 75.
Nancy was born and raised in Ontario and there she met the love of her life, Arthur. They moved to Nova Scotia with a two year old son Donald. Three years later they had moved to Westfield and their daughter, Sheila was born.
Nancy embraced the community and when her sister Lin also moved from Ontario, they opened a restaurant in Caledonia. Nancy later moved her business to Westfield and opened Kelly’s Convenience store with Arthur and over the years enjoyed watching the youth of the community grow. She became a dedicated member of the Westfield Community Hall. She was an avid baker and supported many charitable organizations in the community. Nancy loved animals; never without a pet in her home and in her later years especially enjoyed feeding and watching birds.
Nancy was predeceased by husband Arthur, her parents Gordon and Evelyn Latimer, infant son Kevin and grandsons Jordan and Patrick.
Left to mourn Nancy are son Donald, daughter Sheila (Kris), brothers Gord (Melody), Michael (Sharon), Ted, and sister Linda as well as a large circle of extended family and friends.
Cremation has taken place. A committal service will take place Saturday, July 16th, 2022 at 1:30 p.m. in Hillcrest Cemetery, Westfield. A celebration of life to follow at Westfield Community Hall, Westfield, N.S. Commemorative donations may be made to your local animal shelter or a charity of choice.

To all of Nancy’s Family: I am so sorry for your loss. I met Nan through a group of friends known as Queens Connectors. She was a very smart and hard working lady. She was involved in the breakfasts at the hall in Westfield and Lanny and I used to go to them…….they were the best. My Sincere Condolences to you all. Take Care. RIP Nan……..you will be missed.
My sincere condolences to Donnie, Sheila, Lin and the rest of the family. Nancy was a great presence in the community. Her endless hours of volunteering and her support of any and every community event has not gone unnoticed. She was driving force in the Westfield Community Hall and spent many hours with us, both as a director and as president, at fundraising events and keeping the hall running. I, for one, will always remember the treats she had at the ready whenever I stopped by. Love you Nance, rest easy my friend. Xoxo
At this sad time in my own life I find it difficult to realize my friend Nancy has passed.

To Nan’s family, I was so saddened to see Nan has passed away. I was another Queen’s Connector , who got to meet Nan, through the group. Nan was a lovely lady, loved animals and made the best turkey dinner, I have ever had. She is probably catching Joan up, on all that has gone on, since Joan passed. We were all good friends. You will be missed, Nan. Rest in peace .Gran.

Sheila and Kris,
We are thinking of you both during this sad time. It sounds like you mother had a very caring heart. Take one day at a time and know she will always be with you.
I am Nancy’s older brother and could go on forever with stories and reminisces. Nancy and the rest of our family grew up in Toronto. There were 5 of us and as many families of the era grew up quite poor. What we did not have though was a lack of love for one another and stuck together through thick and thin. As we were the 2 oldest, we led the way, and shared our lives to the fullest, until she met her lifelong soulmate, Arthur Frail. We were very close thereafter when they lived in Ontario, and kept up a long distance friendship when they moved to Nova Scotia. Nancy always had a compassion for those around her, and an excellent memory for those she had fond memories of. I am proud of her many accomplishments and her involvement in the Westfield community my sentiments are mirrored by my other siblings, and we will long remember Nancy. My wife, Melody and our children Curtis and Norman all loved her and will remember her fondly.

So sorry to hear of Nan’s passing..we had the pleasure of meeting her through Queens Connections group and at lovely Westfield community breakfasts.
Her little store held bounties for the size of it.
A darling, kind hearted lady..she was always willing to help.
God rest your soul Nan..be in peace, your many jobs on earth are done!
My deepest sympathies to the family. I’ve known Nancy for many years and she always had some laughter to share.She loved her furry friends and her birds .You could usually find her in the kitchen baking up a storm , it made her heart happy if I remember correctly. May she rest in peace.

Richard, Kelly@ Jillian
Donnie, Sheila, Lin and all of Nan’s family.We mourn with you this day .Nan found a special place in our hearts and will forever stay there.For many years we shared so many laughs and she taught me so many things like A big bank account doesn’t make you rich.Or there’s never a bad time for a good beer.I learned early not to argue with Nan because I never won.I learned to be careful what i asked her for.I asked her once to make me a dozen cookies for my Special Olympics floor hockey team that Jillian played on and from that day on I got treat bags every year for the team.Cookies weren’t enough.I learned not to suggest we have a Christmas in July party in Westfield because I got the hall, a full turkey dinner, 2 Santas and lots of gifts.lol But most important I learned what it meant to find your soulmate here on Earth.Nan remember what we talked about and make sure you give kevin my message that Jillian is doing just fine .Until we meet again I will toast you for giving me so many years of laughs, love and true family.
So sorry to hear of Nancys passing She will be missed by all who knew her.Hugs to all her family. My condolence

To Nan’s Family, I am so sorry for your loss. It is a community loss. I so enjoyed my mornings with her. If there was ever something I couldn’t find she made it her mission to find it. She held a wealth of knowledge and should have wrote a book lol. She will be greatly missed.
