Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM/GAMES -

Alder Point

It is with deep sad­ness that we an­nounce the pass­ing of our dear Mother Mag­da­lene Ian­tha (Sa­man­tha) Jardine on Fe­bru­ary 8, 2017 at Taigh So­las in the North­side Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal, North Syd­ney sur­rounded by her lov­ing fam­ily.

Born in Alder Point on Fe­bru­ary 16, 1922 she was the daugh­ter of the late Martin and Roz­zlean (Du­gas) Si­mon.

Mom had strong faith; she was a mem­ber of St. Anne Church, Alder Point. In her early years she worked in Hal­i­fax, even­tu­ally com­ing back home to care for her mother and brother. Af­ter the pass­ing of her mother, she went to work for Bluenose Fish­eries in Alder Point as Fore­lady over the trim­mers and pack­ers. Mag­da­lene’s fam­ily meant ev­ery­thing to her. She loved bak­ing for them, es­pe­cially her choco­late cake and ap­ple pies. She loved mu­sic and was an avid fid­dle player. Many times you would find her out­side feed­ing the squir­rels and birds and tend­ing to her many flow­ers.

She is sur­vived by her daugh­ters, Deb­bie (Jackie) Jobes, Alder Point and Brenda Cleve­land, North Syd­ney. Along with grand­chil­dren, Deb­bie ( Dwayne) MacLean , Alder Point and Paula Cleve­land, Mira. Great-grand­chil­dren, Brook­lyn and Ri­ley MacLean, Destiny, An­drew, Dewey ,Carter and Richard Cleve­land. She is also sur­vived by brothers, Ce­cil (Sonny)(Gail ) Si­mon, Syd­ney Mines.

Be­sides her par­ents, Mag­da­lene was pre­de­ceased by her hus­band, Ce­cil in 1977, and pre­cious grand­son, John T. in 1989. Along with sis­ters, Doris Laf­fin, Melinda Camp­bell, and Agnes; brothers, Basil, Barry, Joe and Amadee.

Spe­cial Thanks to all of those who showed com­pas­sion to our dear Mom over the years at Taigh So­las and a spe­cial Thanks to Dr. Michel and Louise McKeough.

There will be no visi­ta­tion. A fu­neral Mass to cel­e­brate Mag­da­lene’s life will be held on Satur­day Fe­bru­ary 11, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Ann Church , Alder Point, with Fr. Peter McLeod of­fi­ci­at­ing. With Re­cep­tion to fol­low in Par­ish Hall.

“There is in all this world no other, who claims our love as you do Mother”
