Paula Agnes Camus-Robertson, adored by her husband, Ronnie Robertson; children, Jenna, Emma and Barrett and grandson, Nathan, was called home on Sunday, December 29, 2019.
Paula was the beloved daughter of John and Agnes Camus; sister to Karen Camus (Mike Andrews), Jennifer Moss (Darren) and James Camus (Rose-Anne); aunt to Brandon and Nicole, Alyssa and Alex, Dustin and Christian; great-aunt to Bree; aunt to Colby, Rachel and Cody, Daniel, Matthew and Abigail, Mitchell and Sarah, and Bailey. She is also survived by father-in-law, Donnie Robertson (the late Sandra); brothers-in-law, Jason Robertson (Allie), David Curtis (Janita), Brian Walker and Stephen Walker
Paula’s journey began in 1970 in Cheticamp, Cape Breton, as the youngest of four siblings. She moved to Westmount with her family when she was 5 years old and lived there for most of her life. As family and friends knew, Paula had kidney disease and was very lucky to be the recipient of two kidney transplants. The first from her mother Agnes and the second from her husband Ronnie. Paula was an amazing person, very strong, determined and always positive. She faced multiple challenges and never, ever gave up.
Paula was very blessed to have wonderful friendships, a positive outlook on life, and, most importantly, family. Paula’s children and grand-child were her heart and joy, there is no denying that. She always kept those around her on their toes! One of her passions during the last few years was her horse, Secret. Spending time riding and tending to her was where she found peace and time for reflection. The way that she most enjoyed spending her time was with her family, especially doing activities with her husband, children and grandson. Along the way, Paula has received so much love and support from family and friends, including her colleagues at Marine Atlantic, and her girlfriends from supper club; it has been a true blessing.
Paula’s struggle has now ended, and she is at peace. The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at the Cancer Center and ICU at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital; they were amazing!
There will be no visitation by Paula’s request. Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, January 4, 2020 at 11 a.m. at the Holy Rosary Church in Westmount with interment to follow at the Holy Rosary Cemetery.
Donations in Paula’s memory may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, the Kidney Foundation of Canada or a charity of your choice.
Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.
Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of CAMUS-ROBERTSON Paula Agnes 2019..
