North Syd­ney

It is with heart­felt sad­ness we an­nounce the peace­ful pass­ing of our beloved mother, grand­mother and great­grand­mother Rose Genevieve Orrell, age 94, on Mon­day, May 29, 2017 at the North­side Com­mu­nity Guest Home.

Born in North Syd­ney, on Oc­to­ber 8, 1922, Genevieve was the daugh­ter of the late Salim and Cather­ine (Mut­ter)


In her ear­lier years she worked in the fam­ily whole­sale busi­ness in Corner Brook, NL and later in North Syd­ney. She was a long time member of St. Joseph Church in North Syd­ney and while liv­ing in Syd­ney at­tended Our Lady of Fa­tima and St. An­thony Daniel Churches. She was a member of St. Vin­cent de Paul So­ci­ety and for many years a member of the Ladies Auxiliary 562 Cabot Squadron Air Cadets. The great­est en­joy­ment in her life was sup­port­ing and spend­ing time with her chil­dren and grand­chil­dren. Genevieve is the last sur­viv­ing member of her im­me­di­ate fam­ily.
