NU­GENT, Carmel

New Water­ford / Sydney

Cape Breton Post - - Obituaries -

It is with great sad­ness that we an­nounce the pass­ing of our dear mother, grand­mother, wife, sis­ter, aunt and friend, Carmel Michaeleen Nu­gent, on April 12, 2017 sur­rounded by her lov­ing fam­ily.

Born in Sydney on June 17, 1947, Carmel was the daugh­ter of the late Michael and Mary (Ma­cLean) MacNeil.

In her younger years, Carmel fol­lowed her heart and be­came a CNA and worked at The New Water­ford, City and St. Rita’s hospi­tals. She was a lov­ing and car­ing per­son who en­joyed the sim­ple things in life, like be­ing in­de­pen­dent and able to walk. It was a sad time when MS robbed her of this abil­ity. Carmel loved her grand­chil­dren very much and was so proud of all of them.

Carmel is sur­vived by her hus­band, Fran­cis; chil­dren, Carmel (Teddy), Kevin (Natasha) and Paul (Lisa); seven grand­chil­dren and one special great-grand­son. She is also sur­vived by her sib­lings, Wil­fred, Pius, James, Ann Marie, Claire and Ber­nadette.

Be­sides her par­ents, Carmel was pre­de­ceased by broth­ers, Jackie, Fran­cis and Gre­gory and her sis­ter, Theresa.

There will be no vis­i­ta­tion. Cre­ma­tion has taken place un­der the care and di­rec­tion of V.J. McGil­livray Funeral Home, New Water­ford.

A funeral mass will be held at Saint Theresa’s Church in Sydney on Au­gust 4, 2017 at 11 a.m. with Fa­ther Den­nis Lamey of­fi­ci­at­ing. Burial will be in Saint Theresa’s Ceme­tery, Sydney, with a lun­cheon to fol­low at St. Leonard’s Par­ish Hall on Con­vent Street, New Water­ford.

For those who wish, do­na­tions may be made to the MS So­ci­ety.

Special thank you to all the doc­tors and nurs­ing staff at the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Hos­pi­tal for their com­pas­sion and kind­ness shown to our mom dur­ing her stay.

On­line ex­pres­sions of sym­pa­thy may be sent to the fam­ily at: www.vjm­cgillivray.ca.
