Ella Marjorie Nickerson, 87, passed away on June 23rd, 2012, after a brief journey with cancer. Ella was born in Newellton to the late Oscar and Agatha (Brown) Newell. As a young girl she and her family moved to Doctor's Cove where she resided until moving to Pont du Marais Boarding Home in Lower West Pubnico and there she spent 18 years. After falling and injuring her back she was then moved into a full care nursing home, first to Lockeport and then to Nakile which she was extremely fond of and the staff there made her stay with them very special. Ella is survived by her daughter, Mary Ella d'Entremont, Middle West Pubnico and granddaughters, Jolene (Aaron) Merritt, Halifax and Julie d'Entremont, Ontario; step-granddaughter, Janet (Kevin) Horne, PEI and step-grandson, Jeff (Angela) d'Entremont, Pubnico; along with great-grandchildren, Arlo, Maeve, Finn Meritt and Mackenzie and Leaf Korthals, Spencer and Alexis Horne, and Kallista d'Entremont. She is also survived by sister-in-law, Jenny Newell, Barrie, Ontario along with numerous nieces and nephews. Ella was predeceased by her first husband Ralph MacKenzie and second husband Basil Nickerson. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family being predeceased by her brothers, Randolph, Alfred, Keith and Teddy and by sisters, Florence, Lillian, Dorothy and Isabelle. She was also predeceased by son-in-law Michel d'Entremont (March 2012) and Julie's husband, Chris Korthals (June 2011). She was a member of the Doctor's Cove United Baptist Church and a Dominion Life member of the Women's Missionary Society. Mom was a talented seamstress and loved to bake and there was rarely a function that she did not have food ready for. Mom lived with challenges for many years of her life but found peace in her surroundings and was very fond of those who cared for her daily. The family would like to thank Dr. Webster and Dr. Chris Murphy, the staff of 4 East of the YRH and to Charlene LeBlanc and staff and to the staff of Nakile for their loving care of Ella. We appreciate each and every one of you!
