Date de décès : 10 avril 2017

It is with great sorrow that we announce the death of Clara MacPhee, age 89, of 128 Bruce St., Glace Bay on April 10th, 2017 after a brief illness.
Born in MacKay’s Corner, she was a daughter of the late Mary Jane(MacDonald) and George Fraser.
She was the last surviving member of her immediate family and was predeceased by her husband, Frank; brothers, Georgie, James, Herbert, Samuel, Stanley, Alton, George; and sisters, Olive and Bonnie.
Clara was a member of both Holy Cross and St. Anne’s Parish, the CWL, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 3 and Glace Bay Pensioner’s Club. During WWII she served with the Royal Canadian Air Force as a chef. Clara worked at a variety of jobs throughout her life including Kaufman’s Shoe Factory in Kitchener Ontario, Gillis’s Market, Shores Glace Bay, Woolworths and the Cape Breton Regional School Board as a grounds and lunch monitor. Her favorite pastimes were playing cards and going to dances with her friends who will miss her dearly. Her dance card was always full. Clara was very devoted to her faith and visited Ste. Anne de Beaupre for forty-four years in a row.
Clara is survived by her son, Alton (Jennifer) of Sydney; daughters, Gail, Mary and Fran (Gary) of Glace Bay; grandchildren, Danielle(Roy) of Dartmouth, Tanya (Cameron) of Ottawa, Wayne Scott (Zona) of Taiwan, Stephanie (Ryan) of Waterloo, Kyle (Elisha) of Glace Bay, Ryan of Glace Bay, Elizabeth of Sydney; and cherished great-grandchildren, Gracie, Amy, Brady, Ryan, Chase, Eve and Ciaran. Clara also sponsored three foster children in Africa and South America.
Affectionately known to many as Nanny, Clara was much loved as a mother, grandmother, great- grandmother and friend. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her pride and joy. She was strong, giving, independent and lived every day of her life to the fullest. She passed along all of these qualities to her children who loved her very deeply. Nanny will always be in our hearts and never forgotten.
Visitation for Clara MacPhee will be held on Monday April 17, 2017 from 6-9 p.m. at Curry’s Funeral Home, 775 Main St., Glace Bay.
Funeral to be held Tuesday April 18, 10 a.m. at St. Anne’s Church, Main St., Glace Bay .
