PERIN, Ber­nadette (Nee Reid)

New Waterford

Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM -

It is with much sad­ness and love that we an­nounce the pass­ing of Ber­nadette Perin. Bernie peace­fully passed away with her lov­ing fam­ily by her side on Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 24, 2017, at Maple Hill Manor; her home for the past 16 years.

Born in Glace Bay, she was the daugh­ter of the late Hugh and El­iz­a­beth (MacNeil) Reid.

Bernie worked as a house­keeper at St. Michael’s glebe house, River Ryan for sev­eral years. She also worked at the GI Plant and the lunch counter at Wool­worth’s un­til her re­tire­ment.

She was a very car­ing, lov­ing mom and nanny; al­ways ready to help when needed. She was also a great cook and baker and had a pas­sion for read­ing and bowl­ing. She was the pres­i­dent of the lo­cal bowl­ing league for sev­eral years up un­til 1999.

Bernie will be sadly missed by her only child, son, David (Hec­torine), New Waterford; grand­chil­dren, Tammy Perin (John), Tom Perin (Amanda); great-grand­chil­dren, Jil­lian and Cole Perin, all of Cal­gary. She is also sur­vived by broth­ers, Frank (Mary) Reid, Bad­deck and Joe Reid, On­tario; brother in-law, Ray Hines and nu­mer­ous nieces and neph­ews.

Be­sides her par­ents, she was also pre­de­ceased by a daugh­terin-law, Caro­line (MacEach­ern) Perin; sis­ters, Mar­garet “Peggy” An­thony, Mary (Ray­mond) MacDon­ald, Agnes Hines, Ruth MacIs­sac, Donna (Jim­mie) Hig­gins and brother, Rod­die Reid.

In hon­our­ing Moms wishes there will be no vis­i­ta­tion or funeral ser­vice. In­ter­ment will be at a later date.

Cre­ma­tion has taken place un­der the care and di­rec­tion of V.J. McGil­livray Funeral Home, 380 Smith Street, New Waterford.

No words can truly ex­press our sin­cere ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the lov­ing care pro­vided to Mom by all of the staff at Maple Hill Manor.
