It is with great sadness that we, the family announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt, Adele Elizabeth MacLeod on Sunday, November 24, 2019 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney.
Born on January 31, 1945 in Scotch Lake, Adele was the daughter of the late Robert and Minnie (MacNeil) Jessome.
Adele’s greatest love was spending time with her family and friends. She enjoyed gardening, decorating, listening to music and most of all, baking favorite treats and goodies for her beloved company. Adele will be missed by all who knew her.
Adele is survived by her husband, John ‘Jackie’ Macleod; children, Sherry Frizzell (nee MacLeod) and Lisa MacLeod; two grandchildren, Ryan and Rachel Frizzell; siblings, Bobby Ann MacKinnon, Marjorie Mader, John Jessome, Larry Jessome and Peter Jessome; as well as several nieces and nephews.
Besides her parents, Adele was predeceased by her son, John Murdock MacLeod; sisters, Verle Marchand, Patsy Egan and brother, Barry Jessome.
As per Adele’s request there will be no visitation as cremation has taken place. A private family interment with graveside prayers will take place in Forest Haven Memorial Gardens, Sydney, at a later date.
Special thanks to all the staff at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital for the amazing care they provided to Adele during her time there.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Adele may be made to the Hospice Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton.
Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.
Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of MacLEOD Adele Elizabeth 2019..
