Winnie was a long-time nurse, graduating from the Children’s Hospital Class of 1957. She shared her passion for nursing by caring continuously for her community throughout her life. Winnie was a devoted wife and mother, with her life revolving around her home and family. Her grandchildren were her heart; each one prayed for daily. Winnie enjoyed family gatherings which always included music and brought a smile to her face. In her company, you could expect the best hugs and the words, “Nannie loves you”. Winnie attended St. Bridget’s Parish where she was a member of the choir and CWL for many years. Winnie and Eric spent their lives together in love. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
The family would like to thank Dr. Helika Adams for her many years of care and concern for Winnie. We would also like to thank the palliative care doctors and nursing staff of Colchester East Hants Health Centre.
