Adelaide “Addie” Maude McCavour
After her 109th Christmas, Addie quietly passed away on
December 25th, 2016 in Saint John, at the Church of St. John and St.
Stephen Home having just celebrated her 108th birthday. She
was born on December 12th, 1908 to James Edward and Alberta May
(Brown) Mawhinney in Beaver Harbour, New Brunswick. Before
her marriage she worked at Lawson Dairies and (Dunn) &
Bradstreet as a clerk. The war took Addie and her devoted
husband, Leonard (deceased 1992) to Saskatchewan. Returning
from western Canada, after the war, they lived most of their life in
Lorneville. After Len’s passing Addie continued to
live in her own home until 2007, with the help of relatives and caring
As a long time member of the Lorneville Brethren Assembly she
found great spiritual comfort and friendship. Taught by her
mother, Addie started quilting as a young child and enjoyed this hobby
for over nine decades, giving away nearly all of her hand-crafted
works of art. She read the newspaper daily, keeping up with
and discussing current events and kept diaries, covering every day of
her adult life. Until her 98th year she continued to go out
weekly for groceries which always had to include a stop at
“Timmie’s”. Although she could be
strong-willed she had a good sense of humour and maintained a close
kinship with her relatives.
Addie will be missed by her nieces Betty (Harry) MacDonald
and Marilyn; her nephews Gordon (Muriel) Mawhinney and Hal (Sharon)
Mawhinney. She is also survived by several grandnieces and
nephews, special cousins, Ralph McDonough and his sister Pauline as
well as many close friends. Besides her parents and husband
she was predeceased by brothers Arthur and Lamont, sister Helen,
nephews Ervine and Lloyd and niece Grace.
