The Victoria Standard - - Obituaries / Announcements -

It is with sad­dened hearts that we an­nounce the pass­ing of our beloved mother, grand­mother and friend, Verna Eve­lyn Fraser at High­land Manor in Neil's Har­bour, NS, on Nov. 16, 2018. Born in White Point, Sept. 19, 1935. She lived life with amaz­ing de­ter­mi­na­tion, stel­lar work ethic, and un­end­ing strength. There wasn't a task she couldn't han­dle from the man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­try in On­tario, to jig­ging cod (one of the best), cook­ing at the Chow­der house, to be­ing the cross­ing guard at Ding­wall El­e­men­tary school. There wasn't a per­son young or old who didn't know Verna. She loved to gar­den, bake, knit (her mit­tens and socks were flaw­less cre­ations), watch­ing wheel of for­tune and cheer­ing on her Blue Jays, play­ing bingo and spend­ing time with her fam­ily with de­li­cious meals ev­ery Sun­day with plenty of treats to choose from. She is sur­vived by her chil­dren, Jo­ce­lyn (Jackie), Colin, Jerome (Jody), and Jen­nifer (Justin); sib­lings, Lor­raine, Everett (Brenda), Wanda (David), and Sheila (Raymond); 10 grand­chil­dren and 11 great-grand­chil­dren; and dear friend, Eva. She was pre­de­ceased by her hus­band, Mur­dock Joseph Fraser "Fraser Fraser"; par­ents, Ge­orge and Wil­lena Mack­in­non; sib­lings, Lenora, Clarence, Howard, Wen­dell, and Jackie; daugh­ter-in-law, Bev­erly; sis­ter-in-law and broth­ers-in-law. Her fi­nal days were filled with joy and com­fort at High­land Manor and at Buchan­nan Memo­rial Hos­pi­tal. Cre­ma­tion has taken place and there will be no visi­ta­tion. A ser­vice will be held at a later date. In lieu of flow­ers, dona­tions can be made to North of Smokey Pal­lia­tive Care. "And while she lies in peace­ful sleep, Her mem­ory we shall al­ways keep."
