Cape Breton Post - - Obituaries -

It is with sad hearts that we an­nounce the peace­ful pass­ing of Ade­laide “Ad­die” Nesterenko on Wednes­day, May 10, 2017.

Ad­die was born in Syd­ney on Novem­ber 20, 1927 to the late Ge­orge and Lavina (Frost) Fer­gu­son and was one of eleven chil­dren.

She will be for­ever loved and missed by her daugh­ter, Heather and hus­band, Bill Machan of Skoota­matta Lake, Ont.; grand­chil­dren, Michelle (Gary) and Sarah (Ge­off); great-grand­chil­dren, Noah, Ethan, Will, Leah, El­lena and sev­eral nieces and neph­ews.

Ad­die was a true Cape Bre­toner, yet dur­ing the 1940’s, she had to leave her beloved Syd­ney to find work in the fac­to­ries of On­tario. It was in Toronto that she met and mar­ried WWII Vet­eran, Steve Nesterenko and to­gether, through fierce, hard work, they lov­ingly raised and pro­vided for their daugh­ter, Heather. In re­tire­ment, they re­turned east to Saint John, N. B., where, af­ter 35 years of mar­riage, Steve passed away from cancer. Ad­die re­turned to live in her beloved Cape Bre­ton.

Be­sides her hus­band and par­ents, she was pre­de­ceased by her seven broth­ers, David, Phillip, Harold, Fraser, Charles, Roland and Don­ald and sis­ters, Ge­orgie, Alice and Elsie.

Cre­ma­tion has taken place. A cel­e­bra­tion of Ad­die’s life will take place at Syd­ney Memo­rial Chapel, 49 Wel­ton St. on Fri­day, May 26, 2017 at 10 a.m., with Rev. Rose­mary Godin of­fi­ci­at­ing. Fol­low­ing the ser­vice, in­ter­ment will take place at Hard­wood Hill Ceme­tery.

Do­na­tions to the lo­cal food bank would be ap­pre­ci­ated.

The fam­ily would also like to ac­knowl­edge the lov­ing care and sup­port pro­vided to Ad­die by the nurses, care givers and other staff of Pine Meadow Nurs­ing Home.

Words of com­fort can be sent to the fam­ily at www. syd­neymemo­ri­ or email syd­neymemo­ri­alchapel@ ns.sym­pa­
