Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM -

Whit­ney Pier

It is with bro­ken hearts that we an­nounce the sud­den pass­ing of Brenda Costi­gan on Wed­nes­day, July 1, 2015, at her home.

Born on Nov. 26, 1956, in Syd­ney, Brenda was the daugh­ter of late Michael and Agnes (Whe­lan) Costi­gan.

Mom was our an­gel. She sac­ri­ficed so much of her­self for her chil­dren and ev­ery­one she loved. She loved us more than any­thing in this world, and we loved her more than words can say. She was beau­ti­ful, kind, gen­er­ous, and car­ing.

Brenda leaves be­hind her chil­dren, Krista (Shaun), Ray­mond (Danielle), and Mark (Re­bekah); stepchil­dren, Dwayne, Gary Jr., Lorraine ( Joey), Carey (Rob), Matthew (Leah), and the love of Brenda’s life for the last 22 years, Gary Dal­ton. She also leaves be­hind Krista, Ray­mond, and Mark’s fa­ther, Shaun Henick; as well as her broth­ers and sis­ters, Joe (El­iz­a­beth), Lorraine, He­len (Ge­orge), Marie, Linda (Murdock), Mike (Pat), Brian (Deb­bie), Mary, Nancy (Wayne), Peggy (Arno), John Glen, Beatrice, Martha, and Tom; spe­cial grand­chil­dren, Lo­gan, Ethan, Brook­lyn, Kaylin and Noah; 11 ad­di­tional grand­chil­dren; as well as many nieces and neph­ews.

Be­sides her par­ents, Brenda was pre­de­ceased by Gary’s mother, Mary Dal­ton-Smith; niece, Tracey Bartlett; brother, Sam Costi­gan; and broth­ers-in­law, Chalmers MacIn­tyre and Phil Con­stan­tine.
