WHITE, Anne (MacNeil)

Cape Breton Post - - Obituaries -

It is with deep sad­ness that we an­nounce the pass­ing of our mother Anne White, of Big Pond, on Thurs­day, Au­gust 3, 2017, at home.

Anne will for­ever be re­mem­bered for her wry sense of hu­mour, her cre­ative and artis­tic nature and her in­domitable spirit and strength of char­ac­ter.

Anne was pre­de­ceased by her best friend and hus­band, Gerald.

She was the daugh­ter of the late Neil J and Cather­ine (Renee) MacNeil and the daugh­ter-in­law of the late Cor­nelius and Mar­garet (McNa­mara) White.

She is sur­vived by her daugh­ters, Made­line and Vanessa (Ryan), as well as her grand­sons, Kil­lian, Cowen and Cade.

Anne was the sis­ter of Roseanne (David), Mal­colm (Ruth), Mary (John), Cathy (Don), Rita, Neil (El­iz­a­beth), Clem; as well as the sis­ter-in­law of Lloyd (Christie), Con (Shirley), Jean (Greg), Melvin, Fred (Jean), Mar­lene (Jeff), Michelle and Rose. Anne al­ways had a spe­cial connection with her nieces and neph­ews, in re­cent years, Michelle, Wade and An­gela were par­tic­u­larly close to her.

Although we feel it was a life ended too soon, it was one filled with fam­ily, friends, laugh­ter, love and more than a few cups of tea.

There will be a cel­e­bra­tion of Anne’s life on Fri­day, Au­gust 11 from 6:30 un­til 9 at Rita’s Tea­room. It is a last visit, not a vis­i­ta­tion, and fam­ily and friends are in­vited to stop in for tea and cake.
