E. Jeanne Stanfield

E. Jeanne  Stanfield

Stanfield, E. Jeanne - 97, of Bedford, formerly of Truro, died peacefully on November 9th. Born in Halifax on August 2, 1915, she was the former Jeanne Boutilier, youngest daughter of the late Arthur and Ethel Maud Boutilier. A Halifax explosion survivor, she grew up on South Park Street, attended Tower Road School, later attending Edgehill School in Windsor, Halifax Ladies College, and the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design. She met and later married her husband of 53 years, Charles E. Stanfield, in 1939 and moved to Truro, where together they raised a family and happily lived for the next 43 years before moving to Bedford. There, she designed her much-loved home, where she was fortunate to live until her death. She also made a second summer home in Braeshore, Pictou County, very special for her family. Mum was not only a kind, wonderful and loving mother, but she was loved, respected and admired by all who were fortunate enough to have known her. She was a ‘people’ person who had great presence. She was a beautiful woman her entire life and possessed such an incredibly positive attitude, enthusiasm and zest for life. You felt better about yourself and life in general having been in her company. She was a strong advocate for healthy eating long before it was in vogue, thanks to Lelord Kordell’s book, ‘Eat and Grow Younger’, which she treated as her ‘bible’. She had great talent as an artist and designer/interior decorator ‘extraordinaire’ and was often called upon to redecorate and modify home layouts for family and friends. The fact that she admitted she wouldn’t change a thing in the two homes and cottage that she designed and lived in for over 70 years attested to her talent. She was a former member of the Colchester I.O.D.E., Truro Golf Club, founding member of the Truro Figure Skating Club, St. John’s Anglican Church Guild, Colchester Historical Museum, P.C. Women’s Association, Truro Art Society, and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. She is survived by her daughter, Victoria J. Dymond (the late L. Clayton Dymond), Bedford, and sons, Charles (Madonna), Riverport, and Craig (Joanne), Bedford; seven grandchildren, Andrea (Charles Follini) and Andrew Dymond (Sara Lowe), Kathryn (Adam Crossman), Christine, and Meredith Stanfield, Sarah MacKinnon, Jaclyn (Adam Belton) and Stephanie Stanfield; and four great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her late husband, Charles, sisters Emily (Mrs. H.V.D. Laing), Edith Snow, Margaret (Mrs. C.V. Cooke), and brothers Gilbert, Wilfred, and Jack. The body has been cremated. No visitation by request. A memorial service will be held at All Saints Anglican Church, 1408 Bedford Highway, Bedford, Friday, November 16th at 3pm. Donations in her memory may be made to the Salvation Army or any charity of choice. A committal service at the Terrace Hill Cemetery, Truro, will be held at a later date for family members.
