Mom was the caregiver of the family and provided loving care to many of those gone before her. In her younger years, mom was blessed with grandchildren whom she developed loving and lasting bonds with. A homemaker most of her life, mom also created many friendships with her customers when she was the community AVON lady and part of the janitorial staff of the Sydney Vocational School.

Denise, as she was known by many, is survived by her daughters, Marlene (David) Colbourne, Sydney and Donna (Rick) MacLeod, Sydney; sons, Joseph, Sydney, Gordie (Janice), Spry Bay and David, Toronto; sister, Marguerite (Clifford) Briand, Sydney; grandchildren, Whitney (Sharas), Felicia (Brandon), Adam (Danielle), Amanda, Brandon and Hannah; great-grandchildren, Sean, Alia, Bryson, Kieran, Angelica and Noelle; and Maxine her trusted furry companion.

She was predeceased by her husband, John Joe; sisters, Theresa Desveau and Helene in infancy; and brothers, William, Ned, Francis, Freddie, Placide, Moise, Patrice, Eddie and Moise in infancy.

Visitation will take place Thursday, June 23, 2022 from 6-9 p.m. and Friday, June 24, from 9:30-10:30 a.m. in Sydney Memorial Chapel. Funeral Mass will be held Friday, June 24 at 11 a.m. in St. Theresa’s Church with Rev. Dennis Lamey officiating. Interment in Forest Haven Memorial Gardens.
