In­go­nish Beach, Nova Sco­tia

It is with pro­found sad­ness, that we, the fam­ily of Jen­nifer Westhaver, have to an­nounce her un­timely pass­ing; along with her daugh­ter, Katie Westhaver, on Oct. 20, 2018. Born March 14, 1951, she was the daugh­ter of the late Har­vey and Honey Dono­van of In­go­nish Beach. Jen­nifer was the kind­est, most gen­tle per­son one would have the priv­i­lege to know. She wel­comed ev­ery­one into her home to have a hot meal, home­made bak­ing or to rest their head. Her Box­ing Day party was wall to wall peo­ple, and ev­ery­one wanted to at­tend. Jen­nifer some­how was able to feed half of In­go­nish. She was one of a kind. Her life was de­voted to her fam­ily. Her chil­dren and grand­chil­dren were her en­tire world. Grandma's house was al­ways a fa­vorite; games, movies and treats could al­ways be found. Jen­nifer was also very proud of her years work­ing as a CCA in In­go­nish, Baddeck and Syd­ney. Her clients held a very spe­cial place in her heart. Jen­nifer's pas­time was spent play­ing cards, cro­chet­ing blan­kets for friends and fam­ily or work­ing in her kitchen. When she wasn't home, she was find­ing live mu­sic to lis­ten to or trav­el­ling to New Brunswick to spend time with her spe­cial friend, Dar­rell Hussey. Jen­nifer is sur­vived by her son, Mitchell (Tammy) Westhaver; grand­chil­dren, Dono­van, Eva and Charlee; son-in-law, Matthew Smith; sis­ters, Leona Stock­ley (Ge­orge), Geral­dine Walker (Calvin), Maria Stock­ley (Lon­nie), Ruth Ci­pak (Steve), Mau­reen Sned­don (Perry), Jackie Hines (Dale) and broth­ers, Peter Dono­van (Ginny) and Paul Dono­van (Joanne); spe­cial aunt, Mary Doyle; her Westhaver fam­ily, many nieces, neph­ews, cousins and friends. Jen­nifer was pre­de­ceased by hus­band, James (Jim); son, An­drew; par­ents, Har­vey and Honey Dono­van; sis­ters, Elaine Ti­tus and An­gela Hines and brother, Leon in in­fancy. She left this world with her beau­ti­ful daugh­ter, Katie by her side. Moth­ers and daugh­ters have a spe­cial bond, un­like any other... to­gether, for­ever. The fu­neral Mass for Jen­nifer Westhaver was held Oct. 26, 2018 in St. Peter's Parish Church in In­go­nish Beach, with Fr. Alphon­sus Iwuji and Fr. Paul Macgillivray of­fi­ci­at­ing. The burial was in the parish ceme­tery. In lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions in Jen­nifer’s mem­ory may be made to a char­ity of your choice. Words of com­fort may be for­warded to her fam­ily at www.jmjobesfu­ner­al­home.com.
