It is with heavy hearts we the fam­ily of Ada Bungay, an­nounce her pass­ing on Au­gust 5, 2017 at the North­side Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal sur­rounded with our love.

Born Septem­ber 6, 1928 in Syd­ney Mines, Cape Bre­ton, she was the daugh­ter of the Late Joseph and Lil­lian (Thomas) Roberts.

She ded­i­cated her life to rais­ing and pro­tect­ing her five chil­dren and cher­ished ev­ery mo­ment she got to spend with them. She was strong, and wise and her sense of hu­mor was so pre­cious, a quiet and gen­tle soul but strong and feisty when she needed to be. She missed her hus­band deeply and now joins him in heaven to watch over us once more.

Ada is sur­vived by daugh­ters, Jane (Cyprian) LeBlanc, Ge­or­gena (Wil­fred) Jes­some, Ann (Gary) Spencer; sons, Robert (Colleen) Bungay, Art (Ya­suyo) Bungay, and sis­ter, Ethel Selskey. She was deeply loved by her grand­chil­dren, Michael and Lora Lee Jes­some, Roger, Suzanne and Adam LeBlanc, Stacy Bungay, Devon and Mandy Spencer, and Kai Bungay. She is also sur­vived by 12 great grand­chil­dren and 2 great-great grand­chil­dren.

She was pre­de­ceased by hus­band of 67 years, Ge­orge Bungay; broth­ers, Arthur Roberts, James Roberts and Ru­pert Roberts, and grand­chil­dren, Me­laney, Ni­cole and Wil­fred.

The fam­ily would like to thank friends and fam­ily for their love and sup­port and spe­cial thanks to Dr. El­iz­a­beth McCormick and Dr. John Rit­ter and the extraordinary staff of North­side Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal, Pal­lia­tive Care, VON, EHS and County Homemak­ers for their kind­ness and care for our Mom.

There will be no vis­i­ta­tion. A cel­e­bra­tion of her life will take place Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 9 at 2 p.m. in Trin­ity Angli­can Church, Syd­ney Mines, with Rev. Stacey LeMoine of­fi­ci­at­ing. The burial will be in Trin­ity Angli­can Ceme­tery, Tobin Rd., Syd­ney Mines. A re­cep­tion will be held in Grandy Hall, af­ter the ser­vice. Me­mo­rial do­na­tions in Ada’s mem­ory can be made to the Cape Bre­ton Cancer Cen­ter or the Hospice Pal­lia­tive Care So­ci­ety of Cape Bre­ton. Words of com­fort may be for­warded to the fam­ily at www.jmjobesfu­ner­al­home.com.
