Sarah 'Sally' (Kanarie) Gogo

Born In: Capstick, Nova Scotia, Canada
Born: May 27th, 1916

Passed in: Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Passed on: November 4th, 2012

Sarah passed away peacefully after a long journey with dementia at the age of 96 years.
She was the youngest child born to James and Elizabeth (Cavanaugh) Kanarie in Capstick, Cape Breton, N.S. Sarah was a teacher, and as a young woman taught grades 1 to 11 in one room schoolhouses in various counties of Nova Scotia. These were among the most memorable and happy times of her life. She eventually moved to Montreal where she would meet her husband Douglas. She was employed by the Royal Bank in Montreal for several years. Sarah and Doug moved west in 1954 and made Calgary their home. While Sarah may have left Cape Breton, it never left her and she was ever proud of her Celtic roots.
Sarah is survived by her daughter, Linda (Rick) Hack and beloved granddaughter, Julia.
She was predeceased by her husband in 2000, and her siblings, Margaret, Mary, Julia, Alex, Joe and Jimmy.
A private family service will be held at a later date.

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind always be at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rains fall soft upon your fields
Until we meet again
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
Rest well Mom.
