With broken hearts, and memories that we will treasure forever, we say our final goodbyes to Mom. Elsie (Piercey) Power, 75 years, born in Norman's Cove on January 6, 1941, passed ever so suddenly on March 8, 2016, just as she said she always wanted, in her own home in Chapel Arm. Predeceased by her husband Edward, February 2, 1997, parents James and Elizabeth (Warren) Piercey, brothers; Arthur, Jonas, Merrill and Gerald and sisters; Melvina (Boatwright) and Gladys. Left to mourn and remember are daughters; Marina (James O'Flaherty, Shearstown, NL), Debbie (Albert Butt, Moncton, NB), Beverly (Ray Penney, Carbonear, NL), son Merrill (Doris Branton, Amherstburg, ON), grandchildren; Lisa, Angie, Melissa, and Holly and great-grandchildren; Jaymee, Abby, Noah, Benjamin, Sarah, Adele, Lucas, Harmony and Aryan. Also sister, best friend and confidant Beatrice, brothers; Ron and Fred, sister-in-law: Bernadette (Adrain) and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Mom's passions were quilting and knitting with greyhounds from Newfoundland to Australia proudly wearing "Nan's sweaters", and quilts adorning beds coast-to-coast in Canada. Mom loves animals, and was Nan to all of our pets, from dog sitting to bathing and especially being our rock when there were decisions to be made. No matter when, she came where she was needed. For a short time, Mom also fostered a cat, Penny, from Baccalieu Trail SPCA. She loved to go trouting and berry picking in the summer with a good cup of tea in the woods. At our mother's request a private visitation with her immediate family and her children will take place at Holloway's Funeral Home, Whitbourne on Friday, March 11, 2016 at 11 am . Following this, her family will be welcoming visitors from 2-9 pm. Funeral to be held at Holloway's Funeral Home on Saturday, March 12, 2016 at 10 am. Interment at Sacred Heart Cemetery, Long Harbour Road. A special thank you to sister-in-law and aunt Bernadette, for being there when Mom and her children needed you. We will forever be grateful. To Kenneth, Lorne and Deanne who stayed with Mom until we got there, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. To Const. John Andrews with the Whitbourne Detachment of the RCMP, thank you for guiding us through this very difficult time. There will be reception at the Anglican Parish Hall after the funeral.
