Mim­mie passed away peace­fully at home, in the arms of her fam­ily af­ter a brief ill­ness. She was the last sur­viv­ing mem­ber of her fam­ily.

She is sur­vived by sons, Joey (Cathy), Fred­er­ic­ton, Louie (Cathy), Louisdale; daugh­ter, Jo-Ann McKin­non (Rob­bie), Bridge­port; grand­chil­dren, Krista McKin­non (Mike Ma­cLean), New Water­ford, Mark McKin­non (Ash­ley McNeil), Saint John, Kelly-Lynn Bres­son ( Jason), Bridge­wa­ter, Ryan Bres­son (Ruthie), Cal­gary, Colin Bres­son (Alicia); and Kyle Bres­son, Louisdale; great­grand­chil­dren, Abi­gail and Ja­cob Bres­son, Cal­gary; sis­terin-law, Kath­leen Cirotto (Mon­cey), Guelph, who was more like a sis­ter to Mim­mie; and her very best friend Gwen Boutilier of Glace Bay; spe­cial nephew and niece, Ar­tie and Clare O’Re­gan, Glace Bay, along with many nieces and neph­ews.

She was pre­de­ceased by her hus­band of 50 years, Fran­cis Bres­son of Bridge­port; par­ents, Si­mon and Brid­get Perry of Re­serve; step­mother, John­ina Perry of Re­serve; sis­ters, Peggy, Sadie and An­gela; and her brother, John.

Mim­mie was pre­vi­ously em­ployed by Mod­ern Clean­ers and worked at var­i­ous of­fices through­out Glace Bay and Syd­ney area. Be­sides spend­ing time with her chil­dren, grand­chil­dren and great-grand­chil­dren, Mim­mie en­joyed her Fri­day nights at the Bay­plex with Gwen and friends, Sun­day nights play­ing cards with Trudy and Margeruite (af­fec­tion­ately known as the golden girls by Fran­cis) and bingo with Clare.

Mim­mie will al­ways be re­mem­bered for her sense of hu­mour, wit and kind­ness, by her fam­ily and all who knew her.
