Sarah Patella Hatt (Smart) April 14, 1924 – May 7, 2023
It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother known to most as Ella.
Our mother was born in Edinburgh, Scotland and came to Canada as a war bride. She married our father Kenneth “Skinny” Hatt in 1947. It was a culture shock for sure taking a city girl and plunking her in the middle of a very small rural Nova Scotia town. She couldn’t cook when she first arrived but soon became known for her awesome seafood chowder and homemade bread. She adapted well and even though Scotland wasn’t far from her heart her family and Nova Scotia was her home.
She will be lovingly remembered by her children sons Al Hatt (wife Margaret), Terry Hatt (wife Florence), Scott Hatt (wife Joyce), daughters Cindy Powell (husband Bob) and Elaine Hatt, grandchildren Joe, Stacy, Bonnie, Kevin, Matthew, Jeremy and Shayla and great-grandchildren Jessica, AJ, Phoenix, Brooklyn, Brittany, Nathan, Amber, Tanisha and Logan. She was predeceased by husband Kenneth “Skinny” Hatt, sister Pearl, and brothers George and Bill.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool. As per our mother’s request, there will be no funeral service. Online condolences may be made to www.chandlersfuneral.com
Our family wishes to thank the staff at Hillsview Acres and Roseway Manor for their care and compassion while our mother was in their care.
“May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.” Fois dhut (Rest in peace)

My memories of our time together, will always remain in my heart! Sarah, to me, was so proud of the Scotland of her birth and shared her story with me. On many occasions, she would tell me about her life there and then talk about her life here in Nova Scotia, always including her children and their accomplishments. She loved telling me about their dog, whose name escaped me now, but oh my, wouldn’t she laugh!! Please except my heartfelt condolences. Your Mom was a treasure!
