Syd­ney

Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM/ADVICE/GAMES -

We, the fam­ily of Mary Edna Boudreau, an­nounce her peace­ful pass­ing on Tues­day, Fe­bru­ary 7, 2017, in the pal­lia­tive care unit at the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Hos­pi­tal, Syd­ney, sur­rounded by her lov­ing fam­ily.

Born De­cem­ber 24, 1927, in New Water­ford, she was a daugh­ter of the late Leo and So­phie (Au­coin) Au­coin.

Edna was an ac­tive mem­ber of St. Au­gus­tine’s Church, singing in the choir and was thrilled to re­ceive her 40 year CWL pin. She was an ex­cep­tional mother who took great pride in her chil­dren and fam­i­lies. The nuns al­ways said ‘the Boudreau chil­dren got their brown eyes from Edna’s cin­na­mon rolls.’ Mom took the ad­vanced sew­ing course at Singer’s and was al­ways amazed at her fin­ished projects. She made the best aprons in Cape Bre­ton. She also loved to knit and cro­chet and much of her work was on dis­play in her home.

Edna is sur­vived by her daugh­ters, Marie, Syd­ney, Joanne (Henry) Duf­fett, Halifax, Dianne (Nor­man) Wrathall, Syd­ney and An­nette (Jerry) Ma­cLean, Syd­ney; sons, Bernie (Nancy), Kentville and David, Syd­ney; broth­ers, Al­bert, Truro, Cyril, Pem­broke, Ont., Ge­orge, Victoria, B. C. and David (Pearl), Oshawa, Ont.; eight grand­chil­dren, Wayne (Yolanda) Wrathall, Syd­ney River, Corey (Laura) Wrathall, Syd­ney River, Ja­son (Ash­ley) Duf­fett, Halifax, Jen­nifer Duf­fett, Halifax, Matthew (Kristina) Boudreau, North Kentville, Sa­man­tha Boudreau, Kentville, Gary Boudreau, Syd­ney and Janet (Chris) Tell, Lloy­d­min­ster, Alta.; six great­grand­chil­dren, Austin, Kennedy, Carter, Ri­ley, Zachary and So­phie; sis­ter-in-law, Rita O’Han­ley; sev­eral nieces and neph­ews.

Edna was pre­de­ceased by her hus­band of 45 years, Joseph; only sis­ter, Joan McDaniel; broth­ers, Rus­sell, Hugh, Ed­die and Peter (in in­fancy); great­grand­son, Clark.

We would like to thank our sis­ter, Joanne for the ex­cep­tional care she pro­vided to our mother.
