DOUCETTE, Loretta Anne – age 95, Yar­mouth. It is with heavy hearts that we an­nounce the peace­ful pass­ing of our mom on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 22, 2018 at home. Born Oc­to­ber 23, 1923 in Bell Neck, she was a daugh­ter of the late Avite and Modeste (Me­lan­son) Du­long. Loretta had worked at the cot­ton mill as well as at R.H. Davis & Co. Ltd., both in Yar­mouth, af­ter which she worked in the house­keep­ing de­part­ment at Sun­set Ter­race. Her com­pas­sion­ate na­ture made her a per­fect fit for work­ing at the home, a job she truly en­joyed. In her younger years, Loretta en­joyed bowl­ing and play­ing Pokono and more re­cently she en­joyed mak­ing jig­saw puz­zles, do­ing needle­work and telling sto­ries about her ex­pe­ri­ences in life. She was also a mem­ber of the Con­ser­va­tive Party for many years. Her true pas­sion how­ever, was her fam­ily, and she es­pe­cially loved spend­ing time with her grand­chil­dren. She is sur­vived by her lov­ing chil­dren, Bill (Lor­raine) Doucette, Penoka, AB; Jim (Lynn) Doucette, Che­bogue; Ron­ald (Lorna) Doucette, Port Mait­land; Brenda Cameron (Dan Rose), Yar­mouth; 22 grand­chil­dren; 44 great grand­chil­dren; a sis­ter, Eve­lyn (Vince) Vi­doni, Day­ton, OH as well as many nieces and neph­ews. Aside from her par­ents, she was pre­de­ceased by her hus­band, Wil­liam Joseph Doucette; a son in in­fancy; a daugh­ter, Mar­i­lyn Switzer; broth­ers, Edgar, Bernie, Joe, Wil­fred; sis­ters, Dorothy, Mary, Ma­bel, Edna, Mar­garet. In ac­cor­dance with her wishes, there was no vis­i­ta­tion. A fu­neral ser­vice took place at 1 p.m., Fri­day, De­cem­ber 28 at St. Am­brose CoCathe­dral, Yar­mouth, Dea­con Bruce Hub­bard of­fi­ci­ated. In­ter­ment fol­lowed in Our Lady of Cal­vary Ceme­tery. Do­na­tions in mem­ory of Loretta may be made to the Tri-County Site of the VON, the Alzheimer So­ci­ety of Nova Sco­tia or the Cana­dian Red Cross. The fam­ily wishes to thank
