CAMERON, Martha

Cape Breton Post - - In Memoriam / Advice / Games -

It is with great sad­ness that we an­nounce the sud­den and un­timely pass­ing of wife, mother and grand­mother, Martha Cameron, 70, of Glace Bay, on Tues­day May 16, 2017 at the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Hospi­tal with lov­ing fam­ily at her side. Born in Glace Bay to the late Lloyd and El­iz­a­beth (MacKen­zie) Hil­lier.

Martha was well known for her work as Food Ser­vice Su­per­vi­sor at Seav­iew Manor. Her ca­reer spanned a to­tal of 29 years un­til her re­tire­ment in 2012. Martha’s ser­vice and ded­i­ca­tion to Seav­iew Manor was demon­strated through her con­tin­ued vol­un­teer work with var­i­ous com­mit­tees in­clud­ing her role as Pres­i­dent of the Friends of the Manor, Seav­iew Manor Sup­port Group mem­ber, mem­ber of the Alzheimer’s So­ci­ety and mem­ber of Seav­iew Manor Board of Di­rec­tors. Her com­mit­ment will be sadly missed.

Martha’s pride for her fam­ily was an­other pas­sion in her life. She leaves be­hind to mourn, her daugh­ter, Karen (Brian) Bud­den, and son, Har­vey (Carol) Cameron; grand­chil­dren, Emily (Conor), Matthew (Nadara), Amy and Abby. She was also for­tu­nate to find a friend and com­pan­ion in her live-in Chi­nese stu­dent, Wency (Li Haowen) who resided with her for the last five years. Martha is also sur­vived by sis­ters, Ann Micha­lik, Gwen (Jimmy) Smith; broth­ers, Ge­orge (Kim) Hil­lier and Lloyd (Lorna) Hil­lier, as well as many nieces and neph­ews. Martha also leaves be­hind Patches, her furry friend who shared many ad­ven­tures with her in­clud­ing a road trip to Florida. A spe­cial ac­knowl­edge­ment to the “Club Girls”, Mary-Anita McCormick, Julie Tomato and Diane Au­coin.

Martha was pre­de­ceased by her hus­band of 40 years, Har­vey Cameron Sr.; par­ents, Lloyd and El­iz­a­beth (MacKen­zie) Hil­lier, and brother, Vern Hil­lier.
