FRASER, Rose Cather­ine

Cape Breton Post - - Obituaries/Games -


It is with great sad­ness that we an­nounce the peace­ful pass­ing of our dear mom, Rose (MacNeil) Fraser, at the age of 83. Born in Shenacadie, Nova Sco­tia on Au­gust 4, 1934, she was the daugh­ter of the late John Hec­tor and Rachel (Ma­cLean) MacNeil.

Rose was a truly spe­cial per­son. She was al­ways one to help and care for oth­ers in need. She loved bowl­ing, darts, read­ing, play­ing cards and sports of all kinds, with bas­ket­ball and hockey be­ing her favourites to watch.

She cher­ished her time spent with fam­ily and friends. Christ­mas was a very spe­cial time for Rose and she al­ways en­joyed mak­ing up stock­ings for her chil­dren and grand­chil­dren. In the eyes of her grand­chil­dren, her house was al­ways the best dec­o­rated for the Christ­mas sea­son.

Rose en­joyed swim­ming at Shenacadie Beach, pic­nics with her chil­dren and the many sum­mers spent in Grand Nar­rows.

The kitchen was the heart of her home. She had her chil­dren and grand­chil­dren over ev­ery week for Sun­day din­ner. Ev­ery­one looked for­ward to getting to­gether af­ter church and en­joy­ing “the best meal of the week”.

Rose worked for many years at the Sa­cred Heart Glebe House and was a long-stand­ing mem­ber of the CWL. She was a woman of strong faith and in­stilled this faith in her en­tire fam­ily.

Rose is sur­vived by her chil­dren, Al­lan (Camille Dion), John (Michelle), Al­bert (Lefty), Carol Ann (Dar­rell Mac­Don­ald), Sandy (the late Carrie McPhee) and Shelly (Dave Fe­dora). She will be truly missed by her grand­chil­dren, Chris Robert­son, Curt (Ali­son) MacQuar­rie, Lee MacQuar­rie, Bran­don Fe­dora, Jeff Fe­dora, Brit­tany Fe­dora, Lind­say Fraser, Raechelle Fraser and An­drea Gard­ner. Rose also had one great grand­daugh­ter, Harper MacQuar­rie who she un­for­tu­nately did not have the op­por­tu­nity to meet, but she did en­joy look­ing at the many pic­tures and videos of her. She is also sur­vived by her broth­ers, Neil MacNeil and John Alex MacNeil. She was pre­de­ceased by her lov­ing hus­band, Al­bert; broth­ers, Steven and John Hughie MacNeil, and sis­ters, Mar­garet MacNeil and Christina ‘Tina’ Richard.

Her fi­nal years were spent at Celtic Court Nurs­ing Home. We wish to thank the en­tire staff of Celtic Court, as well as the clients and fam­i­lies for their gen­uine care, love and sup­port of “sweet Rose”.

Vis­i­ta­tion will be held 2-4 and 7- 9 p.m. on Tues­day, Au­gust 8 at T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel. A cel­e­bra­tion of life will be held 11 a.m. on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 9 at St. Mar­guerite Bour­geoys Church. Rose will be laid to rest in St. Barra’s Ceme­tery, Christ­mas Is­land.

In lieu of flow­ers do­na­tions can be made to the Alzheimer So­ci­ety of Nova Sco­tia or a char­ity of one’s choice.

Words of com­fort may be made to her fam­ily by vis­it­ing
