Cape Breton Post - - Obituaries/Religion/Games - Glace Bay

It is with heart­felt sad­ness that we an­nounce the peace­ful pass­ing of Mar­guerite Jobe, age 100 at the Glace Bay Hospi­tal on Tues­day, May 16, 2017 sur­rounded by her lov­ing fam­ily.

Born in Glace Bay on Fe­bru­ary 15, 1917, she was the daugh­ter of the late James Frazer and An­nie Josephine (Holland) Pushie.

Mar­guerite was the last sur­viv­ing mem­ber of her fam­ily. She was a de­voted and beloved mother, grand­mother and great-grand­mother. She is sur­vived by her sons, Gil­bert (Sadie), Ron­ald (Denise) and Fran­cis (Kelly), eight grand­chil­dren; seven great-grand­chil­dren; spe­cial niece, Donna Muise and her hus­band, Kenny.

Mar­guerite was a stay at home mom who loved her fam­ily dearly. She had many friends and neigh­bours who will miss her kind words and beau­ti­ful smile. Mar­guerite loved flow­ers, feed­ing the birds and she treated her pets like one of the fam­ily. A spe­cial thanks to the staff of the Glace Bay Hospi­tal and Seav­iew Manor.

Be­sides her par­ents, she was pre­de­ceased by her hus­band, Clay­ton Jobe in 1978; sis­ters, Mary Pond, Au­drey Par­sons, An­nie Ewan­ishawn; brother, Alex Pushie; grandson, Andrew Jobe and great-grandson, Eric Jobe.

In lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions can be made in Mar­guerite’s mem­ory to the SPCA, Syd­ney.

Vis­i­ta­tion will be held Sun­day, May 21, 2017 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. in V.J. McGil­livray Funeral Home, 16 Re­serve St., Glace Bay.

A Funeral ser­vice will be held on Mon­day at 10 a.m. in the Funeral Home Chapel fol­lowed by a re­cep­tion. Fr. Leo Boone of­fi­ci­at­ing.

Cre­ma­tion will take place af­ter the ser­vice. In­ter­ment will be held on Thurs­day, May 25, 2017 at 10 a.m. in For­est Haven Me­mo­rial Gar­dens.
