The family of Louise Evelyn Cantwell is saddened to make the announcement of her passing at the Northside General Hospital on Thursday, January 17, 2013, with family by her side.
Born in Sydney Mines on December 5th, 1927, she was the daughter of the late John D. & Gladys (Eveleigh) White. She was a member of Carman United Church, Sydney Mines.
Mom was a member of the Bras d'Or and Northside Pensioners Club. She enjoyed travelling with her family and good friends. She always enjoyed a game of Bingo, and most of all her Wednesday morning “Hymn Sing.”
Louise often said she was grateful to the Lord for a rich, full life, the cornerstone of which was her family, whom she devoted her entire life to. She is survived by her Thank-ful family, namely: Marlene, North Sydney, Kevin (Linda) Halifax, Patsy (Dean), Sydney, Lorne (Patrice), Sydney Mines, Reggie (Debbie), Bras d’Or and David (Cynthia), Scotch Lake.
Her grand-children were her pride and joy of her life. They include Scott, Rodney, Amie, Cory, Kevin, Lee Ann, Chad, Nathan, Andrew, Nicole, Christopher, David, Warren, Shannon and Natasha. Louise is also survived by a number of great-grandchildren, Jordan, Jenna, Rebecca, Brayden, Brooke, Conner, Cody, Eden and Tyler, son-in-law Wayne Buffett, and her siblings, Reg (Yvonne), Millville, Max (Joan), Sydney Mines, Joan Gracie, Sydney Mines and Betty Roland, Alder Point.
Besides her parents, Louise was predeceased by the love of her life, her husband Warren; daughter Allison Buffett; son Russell; special granddaughter Charmaine; sister Girlena; and brothers Duncan, George and Cliff.
The Cantwell family is very appreciative to Dr. Paul Hickey for his many years of compassion and care, and the many other doctors and staff at the Northside General Hospital and CB Regional Hospital, and the Northside Homemakers for their kindness at times when she required care.
