She is survived by her only daughter Nancy (Blair) of Durham NS, and son Peter (Lucille) of Truemanville, NS; daughters-in-law Laura Jewers of Toronto Ont, Della Lawless-Jewers of Halifax NS, several nieces and nephews, as well as numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren who will miss her dearly.

She worked 30 plus years at the Halifax Infirmary in various roles throughout those years, mostly as a nurse's aid and enjoyed her role there very much. She served on the Joggins CWL, as well as a Eucharistic Minister at Saint Thomas Aquinas Church, she was also a member of the River Hebert Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary and a member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Joggins Branch, Auxiliary.

Of many things she enjoyed knitting, she loved spending time with cats especially Ollie (predeceased) whom she loved very much, singing with her bird, Birdie. She always had the biggest smile while dancing around the house.
