Mom enjoyed the company of family and friends, and laughs were a guarantee. She had a great sense of humour, and enjoyed a good party and song (Yellow Bird).
She is survived by her children, Brenda (Jamie) Power, Garfield (Laura), Blaine, and Wanda (Darrell) Bond; 12 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren; sisters-in-law, Jenny and Jean Snow; aunts, Rose Steele and Edith King and many close and dear friends.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Gordon; sister, Frances MacIntosh 'Sis'; daughter-in-law, Vickie Snow; sisters-in-law, Madge Snow, Elizabeth Snow and Georgina MacNeil and uncle, Mike Steele.
Special thanks are extended to Dr. Michel McKeough and Louise, Cape Breton County Homemakers, the staff at the Regional and Northside General Hospitals, Capitol Drugs, and EHS.
