J. Anna Burke

August 18, 1932 – December 28, 2021

|

Sydney

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Anna Burke on December 28, 2021, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital at the age of 89.

Born in Sydney, she was the daughter of the late Albert and Greta (Condon) Gallant and the granddaughter of the Fire Chief of Halifax, Edward Condon who was killed in the Halifax Explosion.

Anna enjoyed a long career with Co-Op Building Supplies until her retirement. She was a member of St. Theresa’s Parish and the CWL, and the Cape Breton Irish Benevolent Society.

Anna resided on Gray St. in Ashby for over 60 years and recently resided at the MacGillivray Guest Home with her sister, Georgie for whom she watched over every day. Anna thoroughly enjoyed doing her crossword puzzles from the newspaper and playing cards with her close friends at MacGillivray.

We would like to thank the staff of MacGillivray Guest Home for their care and compassion.

Anna is survived by her daughter, Margaret Murphy; sons, David (Elizabeth), Robert (Donna) and Kevin; a sister, Georgina Gallant; grandchildren, Scott, David, Blair, Anne Marie, John, Debra, Jennifer, Christopher, Karen and Nicholas; 12 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

Anna was predeceased by her husband, Wilfred; daughter, Karen Stephens; sister, Margaret MacLeod; brothers, Gerald, Kenny and Albert.

Cremation has taken place under the care of Sydney Memorial Chapel and funeral service will take place at a later date.

Memorials may be made to RC. MacGillivray Guest Home or charity of choice.
