ARSE­NAULT, Norma Phyl­lis


It is with pro­found sad­ness that we an­nounce the sudden pass­ing of our dear mother, Phyl­lis Arse­nault at the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Hos­pi­tal on Wed­nes­day, February 8, 2017. Born Au­gust 13, 1942 in North River, Cape Bre­ton, she was the daugh­ter of the late Ken­neth and Josephine (MacKaskill) Mac­Don­ald.

Phyl­lis was a lov­ing and de­voted mother, sis­ter and grand­mother, who was the fabric bind­ing the fam­ily to what we all come to know as it is to­day. Her great­est love was her fam­ily. She loved to cook and bake for oth­ers and never missed an op­por­tu­nity to host fam­ily oc­ca­sions. We will surely miss our Rum­moli nights.

Phyl­lis is sur­vived by son, David (Denise), Shad Bay; daugh­ter, Su­san (Paul) Sprack­lin, Oro­mocto; grand­chil­dren, Kristo­pher and Bran­don (Kayla) Sprack­lin, Kaleigh (Mitchell) and Matthew Arse­nault; as well as many nieces and neph­ews who will miss her dearly.

She is also sur­vived by sis­ter, Rachael (Bill) Ben­nett, Sydney; broth­ers, Harry, Toronto, Gillis (Lucy), Regina, Ken (Mary), Bee­ton; half-brother, Freddie (Pearl) Mac­Don­ald; half-sis­ters, Dorothy Keigan and Laura Shaw; sis­ter-in-laws, San­dra and Yvonne; best friends, Roslyn Shea and Anita Cur­rie and spe­cial niece and blue­berry buddy, Judy.

She was pre­de­ceased by her Hus­band, Basil ‘Bee’ Arse­nault; sis­ters, Maisie, Anna and Wilma; broth­ers, Mal­colm and Henry; sis­terin-laws, Betty and Joan and brother-in-laws, Clarence, Wil­fred and Sonny.
