It is with sadness we announce the passing of Bernice Alvena St.Peter, age 88 of Amherst. Bernice passed away on Wednesday, January 4, 2023 at Gables Lodge. 

Born in Maccan, she was a daughter of the late James and Margaret (Collins) Hurley and a widow of the late Edward St. Peter.

Bernice had worked at the Bank of Nova Scotia in Amherst and River Hebert for over 18 years.  She was a deeply devoted mother, grandmother, great and great great grandmother who loved spending time with her family. 

She will be dearly missed by four children; Paul (Wanda) St. Peter, Brookdale, Donnie (Bev) St. Peter, Amherst, Donna (Jerry) White, Maccan, and Patti St. Peter, Maccan; and daughter in law Helen St.Peter and several grandchildren, a great grandson and a great-great grandson; a brother, Des Hurley, Maccan, as well as several nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Edward in 1976; her son Michael in 2010; her twin sister, Mary, as well as her brothers, Laurie, Ernest, Bill and Edwin, and her sisters in law, Margaret Hurley, Joanne Hurley and Elsie Hurley.

Arrangements have been entrusted into the care and guidance of the Jones Family Funeral Centre, 70 Church St., Amherst, NS (902-667-8777).   Honouring Bernice's wishes, cremation has taken place and there is to be no funeral service.  A time of public visitation will be held at the funeral home on Sunday, January 8, 2023 from 2-4 and 6-8 pm.  Interment will take place in the Maccan Cemetery in the spring.

Those wishing to make a donation in Bernice's name may do so to the Canadian Cancer Society.
