Born De­cem­ber 21, 1946 in Halifax, she was the daugh­ter of the late Edna (Han­ra­han) Kins­man and Richard Kins­man. A grad­u­ate of the Halifax In­fir­mary School of Nurs­ing, she started her ca­reer in Mon­treal, con­tin­ued in Regina and Halifax and ended in Antigonish, where she ‘re­tired.’ Nurs­ing was her gift and she con­tin­ued to care for any­one and ev­ery­one who needed it long af­ter she had stopped work­ing. She reg­u­larly at­tended church at St. Ninian’s Cathe­dral and was a mem­ber of the CWL. She had also been on the ex­ec­u­tive board of Naomi So­ci­ety, as trea­surer, for many years. She could tell sto­ries and had a kind, gen­tle sense of hu­mour. She adored her gar­dens and ev­ery­one else’s. Hours would be spent with her clos­est fam­ily and friends and cro­chet­ing, knit­ting, needle­point­ing, tat­ting, craft­ing, talk­ing, laugh­ing and drink­ing tea. Her fa­vorite time of year was Christ­mas and ev­ery dec­o­ra­tion she had would be pulled out and set up for ev­ery­one in Antigonish to drive by and en­joy. Bingo was one of her favourite ac­tiv­i­ties but her new­est hobby was bowl­ing with her own set of bowl­ing balls. She loved trav­el­ing all over with friends and fam­ily mem­bers clos­est to her heart. When they trav­elled to Scot­land she was wel­comed with open arms and it made her heart sing to be there. She felt this was her home away from home.

She is sur­vived by two chil­dren, Kath­leen Anne (Barry Ring), Richard James (Paula Bour­deau); two brothers, David (Es­ther Landry), Stephen (Dianne Power); eight grand­chil­dren, Marc, Sab­rina, An­drew, Grace, Liam, Michael, Evan, El­iz­a­beth; nephew, Corey.

She was pre­de­ceased by her brother, Richard.
