PERIN, Bernadette (Nee Reid)
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.
