Verna Evelyn Harvey
Verna Evelyn Harvey, 91, of New Minas, Nova Scotia passed
away on Monday, February 11, 2019 in the Valley Regional Hospital,
Kentville. Born in Hantsport, she was the daughter of the late Alfred
and Vera (Levy) MacInnis. Although her life ended on Monday, in many
ways the quality of her life ended on January 4, 1972 when her husband
Ted passed away suddenly at the age of 46, a death from which Verna
never recovered. After his death in Ottawa, Ontario, Verna moved to
Kentville, Nova Scotia to be close to her family. Verna would continue
to be a homemaker and mother in Kentville. She enjoyed
spending time with her family, particularly her sisters with whom she
was very close. She is survived by sister Frena Harvie, Kentville;
daughter, Heather Harvey-Stymiest (Charles), Miramichi, New Brunswick;
grandchildren, Liam Seth Harvey-Crowell, Hannah Kathleen Crowell
(Jacob) and Samuel David Ottis Crowell (Michael), all of Fredericton,
New Brunswick; sisters-in-law, Joyce McInnis and Beverley (Ben)
Hendsbee; several nieces and nephews, and great nieces and nephews.
Besides her parents, Verna was predeceased by her husband Ottis
Frederick (Ted) Harvey; sister, Alicia Dauphinee; brothers, Ronald,
Chesley and Keith MacInnis. Her brothers-in-law, Harley Harvie and
Burton Dauphinee and sisters-in-law, Olla MacInnis, June Ettinger and
Margeurite Ettinger. At Verna’s request, there will be no
visitation or funeral service. There will be a private family burial
service in the Spring. Memorial donations in Verna’s memory
may be directed to the Palliative Care Unit of the Valley Regional
Hospital to thank them for the exceptional care provided to my mother.
Special thanks to the Oncology Unit in Halifax as well as to Dr.
Robert Mullan of Kentville, Nova Scotia. As her daughter, I
am especially grateful for the unwavering dedication and care to my
mother shown by Carol Dale and Richard and Shelley Dauphinee. Funeral
arrangements have been entrusted to the White Family Funeral Home and
Cremation Services, Kentville.
