ISHERWOOD, Mary Martha Josephine

Cape Breton Post - - OBITUARIES -

It is with great sad­ness that the fam­ily of Mary Martha Josephine “Molly” an­nounces her pass­ing on Mon­day, Novem­ber 6, 2017.

Born on June 12, 1922 in Stanstead, Que­bec, she was the daugh­ter of the late Percy and Frances (McGaf­fey) Laing.

Molly was an ac­com­plished curler and a long-time mem­ber of the Syd­ney Curl­ing Club. She spent many years as a Girl Guide com­mis­sioner in the Syd­ney area. One of Molly’s pas­sions was knit­ting, some­thing she liked to do while watch­ing her fa­vorite sports on TV. At the top of her sports list you’d find her root­ing for her fa­vorite sports team, the Mon­treal Cana­di­ens. Molly was an avid reader, al­ways mak­ing sure she had time set aside for a good book. In her later years, Molly loved spend­ing her sum­mers at the cot­tage where she en­joyed vis­its from her chil­dren and many grand­chil­dren. Molly loved watch­ing the hum­ming­birds while en­joy­ing her cof­fee, on the deck. This made her day.

Molly is sur­vived by her sons, Trevor (Lynne), Michael (Toni) and Frank Isherwood (Anne); daugh­ters, Gayle Drillen (Philip), Nancy MacPhee (John) and Mar­garet ‘Bette’ Lin­den (Den­nis); 15 grand­chil­dren; 28 great-grand­chil­dren; two great­great-grand­chil­dren; as well as sev­eral nieces and neph­ews.

In ad­di­tion to her par­ents, Molly was pre­de­ceased by her husband, Law­ton Isherwood; an in­fant brother, Robert Laing; a brother, James Laing and a sis­ter, He­len Blan­ton.

In keep­ing with Molly’s wishes, there will be no visi­ta­tion or funeral ser­vice.

A pri­vate fam­ily burial will take place at a later date.

The fam­ily wishes to thank the en­tire staff at Or­chard View LTC Home for their ded­i­cated, com­pas­sion­ate care pro­vided to our Mom over the last 6 years.

Me­mo­rial do­na­tions may be made, to Or­chard View Long Term Care Home in Gage­town, NB or a char­ity of the donor’s choice.
