Barbara J. Martheleur

|

Sydney

It is with great sadness that we, the family of Barbara J. Martheleur, announce her passing on April 5, 2021, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney, at 90 years of age.

Born in Saint John, New Brunswick, she was the only child of William and Elsie Baker.

Barbara’s younger years were spent in Churchill, Manitoba, a place she held very dear to her heart.  Following this, they moved to Halifax-Dartmouth and then to Sydney.

She began a career at the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce in Sydney and remained there for many years.

Barbara married Raymond Martheleur in 1954 and together they raised four children, William (Joan), Nancy (Drew) McDade, and Sandra (Brian) Taylor.  

Barbara was predeceased by her parents, loving husband, and her youngest son, Peter.

Barbara is also survived by her grandchildren, Leanne, Stephanie, Brandon, Devin (Martheleur), Jonathan and Emily (McDade), and Kaitlyn and Melissa (Taylor).  She was blessed with three great-grandchildren, Harper, Elliott, and Emilia.

During her later years, Barbara became an avid quilter and produced many beautiful works of art. She was an active member of both, St. Georges Church and later, Christ the King Parish. Both Ray and Barbara also had many fond memories of meeting and chatting with cruise ship visitors as they gave tours of St. Georges Church.  

Cremation has taken place under the direction of Sydney Memorial Chapel.  There will be no visitation.  Interment to take place at a later date.

Words of comfort can be sent to the family at www.sydneymemorialchapel.ca or e-mail sydneymemorialchapel@ns.sympatico.ca
