MACAU­LAY, (Bryne) Pearl

Cape Breton Post - - In Memoriam -

It is with bro­ken hearts that we, the fam­ily, an­nounce the pass­ing of our mother Pearl MacAu­lay at home in Hal­i­fax, April 27, 2017.

Born in Syd­ney, Novem­ber 22, 1943, she was the daugh­ter of the late Pearl Bryne and Everett (Tim) Bryne.

Pearl is sur­vived by her chil­dren, Shel­ley MacAu­lay (West­mount), Ken (Sherry) MacAu­lay (Truro), An­gela (Eric) Landry (Hal­i­fax); sis­ter, San­dra (Bruce) Camp­bell (West­mount); brother, Tim (Suzanne) Bryne (Bed­ford); grand­sons, Tyler Harker, Ken and Josh MacAu­lay, Ni­co­las Landry; great-grand­son, Jude; nephew, Dar­ren and niece, Mary-Beth.

Pre­de­ceased by first hus­band, Ken­neth MacAu­lay; sis­ter, Mar­sha and grand­par­ents, Robert and Mary-Alice Rose.

Pearl was em­ployed with the Jus­tice Depart­ment for many years be­fore be­com­ing Deputy Regis­trar of Joint Stocks. She held the po­si­tion of act­ing Regis­trar of Joint Stocks un­til her re­tire­ment. Upon re­tir­ing, Mom stayed very ac­tive within the com­mu­nity and sat on var­i­ous boards, her favourite be­ing the A. Tyler Harker Foun­da­tion which was founded on be­half of her grand­son. As a past mem­ber of the P.C. party, mom loved pol­i­tics. She was an avid reader, loved to ball­room dance and she en­joyed her life to the fullest. Her great­est joys in life were her grand­chil­dren whom she loved dearly.

Mom was a wo­man of great strength and wis­dom and gave gen­er­ously of her­self. She was deeply loved and we will miss her pres­ence in our lives more than words can say, es­pe­cially by her clos­est friends, Richard MacAu­lay, John and Mavis Buchanan, Sharon and Elmer MacKay, Doug Lloy, Lorraine Steele, Paulette Hunt, Lorraine Samp­son among oth­ers.

We, the fam­ily, would like to ex­press a heart­felt thank you to Dr. Ernie John­son, a long-time friend and fam­ily physi­cian for his ex­cel­lent care and com­pas­sion shown to our mother through­out the years.

A cre­ma­tion has taken place and a Cel­e­bra­tion of Life will be held in Hal­i­fax and will be an­nounced at a later date. A fam­ily burial will be held in Syd­ney.

In lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions can be made to the A. Tyler Harker Foun­da­tion for Chil­dren with Un­di­ag­nosed Diseases at Syd­ney Credit Union. Do­na­tions will be ac­cepted at all Credit Unions through­out Nova Sco­tia.
