MARSH, Mau­rina

Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM -

Our hearts break again as we say good­bye to a to­tally self­less per­son. Our sis­ter and aunt Mau­rina passed away peace­fully on Fe­bru­ary 2, 2017 at the Har­bour­stone Nurs­ing Home in Syd­ney River. Born in Re­serve Mines on May 25, 1926 to Henry and Mary Jane (Ka­nary) Marsh, she taught school for many years in Re­serve, in­clud­ing serv­ing as prin­ci­pal of Tomp­kins Me­mo­rial El­e­men­tary School. She con­stantly demon­strated her love of chil­dren through sim­ple acts such as bring­ing sand­wiches to school for chil­dren who had lit­tle or noth­ing. Mau­rina ded­i­cated her life to the ser­vice of oth­ers, in par­tic­u­lar her mother Mary Jane and her fam­ily.

Mau­rina is sur­vived by her sis­ters, Zita and Marie; broth­ers, Gan­non (Brother Ninian), Fr. An­thony and Joseph and many nieces and neph­ews.

Mau­rina was pre­de­ceased by her broth­ers, Joseph, James, Alphonse, Den­nis, Sylvester, Henry, Ste­wart and Coady and sis­ters, Mary Ann, Dolores, Do­phie and Gil­bert.

The fam­ily is thank­ful to the staff at Sol­diers Cove for their kind­ness and at­ten­tion.

There will be no vis­i­ta­tion. A funeral mass will be cel­e­brated on Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 9 at 11 a.m. at Saint Joseph’s Ro­man Catholic Church, Re­serve, with Fr. Dan Boudreau of­fi­ci­at­ing.

In lieu of flow­ers do­na­tions may be made to a char­ity of one’s choice.

-No Tears in Heaven-

There are no tears in Heaven nor grief of any kind; I leave this fi­nal teardrop to those I’ve left be­hind. Though ab­sent from the body, I’m pre­sent with the Lord; the joy of my sal­va­tion is now my full re­ward.

Con­do­lences may be sent to the fam­ily at www.cur­rysfu­ner­al­home.com.
