It is with heavy hearts and great sadness we announce the passing of Katherine B. ‘Dewey’ Reynolds, 98, on Tuesday, January 3, 2017, at Alderwood, Baddeck. Born on February 1, 1918, Katherine grew up in Sydney and Baddeck Bay. She was the daughter of the late Malcolm and Mary Ann ‘Minnie’ MacKillop. Katherine worked for many years as an LPN in Boston, Mass., retiring to Baddeck Bay in 1980. Her husband, Joseph G. Reynolds predeceased her in 1971. Dewey was a kind and generous woman, who wanted to look after everyone. She persevered through many physical challenges, meeting each with a strong spirit of independence. She was devoted to her family, always interested in the details of her many siblings, nieces, nephews, cousins and beyond. Dewey will be missed by all who knew her. Katherine is survived by her sisters, Florence (the late Harris), Vancouver, B.C. and Muriel (John) Kaiser, Seaview Manor, Glace Bay; sister-in-law, Pat (the late Alan) MacKillop, Vancouver, B.C.; brother, Murdoch (Margie) MacKillop, Baddeck; as well as many nieces, nephews and their families. Besides her parents and her husband, Katherine was predeceased by her sisters, Norrie, Daisy, Tena and brothers, James, Norman, Alan, Gussie and Ian. Celebration of Dewey’s life will be held on Friday, January 6, 2017 at 2 p.m., at Alderwood, Baddeck, with Rev. Brian MacLeod officiating. Private family burial will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in memory of Katherine may be made to Alderwood or charity of one’s choice.
The family wishes to thank all of the staff of Alderwood, Dr. Chow, Jacqueline Hendrikson, RNP, as well as the many homecare staff who have been so kind and caring during Katherine’s time of need.
