It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of our loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend Lucy Reid on Friday, Feb. 13, 2015, at home, with her family by her side.
Born in North Sydney, she was the daughter of the late Roderick and Elizabeth (MacDougall) MacInnis.
Lucy grew up in Sydney Forks, attended Riverview High School where she played basketball and met the love of her life. She later moved to Westmount to raise her family.
Lucy was the first female employee hired by Woolco in Sydney River in 1964. She retired from Woolco Mayflower Mall as the advertising manager in 1995. Lucy was actively involved in her community. She was a strong supporter of Cape Breton County Minor Hockey serving for years on the executive and was instrumental in the planning of the county rink. She was a long-serving board member of the Cape Breton Hospital, The Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation and the Nova Scotia College of Licensed Practical Nurses.
Well known for her hospitality, Lucy loved to bake, cook and have her family and friends “round for supper”. She was ready at a moment’s notice to entertain her friends and on many occasions her children’s friends when they travelled to Cape Breton. Lucy believed she was very blessed to get to travel with family or friends; whether it was a Sunday drive around the trail, treks to Newfoundland with Bob and their friends or family trips to Europe, Australia her beloved Ireland, Hawaii and Florida. For many years she made annual treks to Calgary and Toronto to “see the kids”.
“Luce” is survived by Bob, her husband of 58 years. Mom also leaves behind daughters, Lindy (Darryl) Arndt, Calgary, Donna (Nick) Rutherford, Coxheath; sons, Robby (MaryLee), Howie Center, Barry (Trish) Westmount, Donny (Kim), Toronto and Gordie (Michelle MacIsaac), Sydney.
Lucy was proud of her grandchildren. “Nanny” had shelves of photos showing all of them through the years. She will be missed by Andrew, Christopher, Jennifer, Kyle, Taryn, Corey, Shawn, Jeffery, Kristen, Bradley, Michelle, Emma, Brenna and Chloe as well as by her great-grandchildren, Kate, Haylee, Sidney, Jack and Brielle. She is also survived by sister Florence Fraser, sisters-in-law, Jessie Wall and Linda Petersen.
Besides her parents, Lucy was predeceased by her brothers, Angus and Jay and sisters, Isabelle and Effie.
Visitation will be held Tuesday, Feb. 17 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at Sydney Memorial Chapel. Funeral service will be 11 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 18 at Our Lady of Fatima Church with Rev. Duane Devereaux officiating.
