It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Florence Allison (Ferguson) Wadden, at the Cove Guest Home on Jan. 9, 2016.
She was a loving wife, mother, sister, sister-in-law, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and friend who dedicated her life and energy to the happiness and health of her family.
Florence was the daughter of the late Ronald and Viola (MacVicar) Ferguson.
Born in 1925, she grew up in Glace Bay and was a member of St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church. She worked at Eaton’s Department Store in Glace Bay where she made many memories and friends, including her husband, Clare Wadden. They were married in St. Andrew’s Church, on Sept. 7, 1953 and they resided in Port Morien, Glace Bay, and for the last 41 years in Westmount.
She is survived by her loving husband of 62 years, Clare; her five children, Ronald (Kathy), Spencer (Maria), Howard, Calvin (Andrea), all of Sydney, Ann Elizabeth (Gary) MacDonald, Halifax; six grandchildren, Bradley, Melissa, Robert, Stephen, Jacob and Sarah; seven great-grandchildren, Kayla, Tyler, Ethan, Logan, Lauryn, Max and Colby.
Florence was predeceased by her brothers, Robert 'Bobby' and Norman.
Florence has touched and enriched the lives of all that knew her. Even during her illness her smile and warm embrace was ever-present. Her unconditional love and strong family values will always be her legacy. During the last twenty years, Florence and Clare spent countless days enjoying their children, grandchildren and friends at the Baddeck cottage of Calvin and Andrea. We are thankful for all the lasting memories that we have to cherish.
We would like to thank Dr. Peter Jackson, the staff at the Cove Guest Home and the Cape Breton Count Homemakers for their kindness and for the fine care they provided.
