It is with regret that we, the family, announce the passing of Edith Boudreau, on Thursday, December 10, 2020 at the MacGillivray Guest Home in Sydney.
Born on March 28, 1929, in Sydney, Edith was the daughter of the late Placide and Margret Boudreau from Newfoundland.
Edie was a member of St. Alban’s Anglican Church, Whitney Pier. During her long-life, Edie enjoyed curling, skating, bowling and going for long drives, and in her early days, playing baseball. She will be truly missed by all who knew her.
Besides her parents, Edith was predeceased by her sisters, Tena (John) Lundrigan, Louise (Roy) Copper and her brother, Bill Boudreau. Edie was the last surviving member of her immediate family.
Left to mourn are her nieces and nephews and their families. She will be particularly missed by her great-grand niece, Caitlyn, her pride and joy.
There will be no visitation. A private memorial service for Edith Boudreau will be celebrated at the Pier Community Funeral Home, Whitney Pier, 1092 Victoria Rd. (entrance on Church Street) with Rev. MacMullin officiating. Interment will take place in Forest Haven Memorial Gardens, Sydney.
Donations in memory of Edith may be made to a charity of one’s choice.
Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.
Edie was a friend of our family for years. She and my mother bowled together for years. Many an evening, Edie’s car would roll into our driveway for a regular visit. She thought the world of her family and spoke so often of them. May she rest in peace🙏
Sorry for your loss, Edie was one of my best friends.
I met Edith At the regional hospital in 2014 while my dad was a patient for 9 months.After dad passed away I visited with her and she told me how her middle name Cavelle came to be.Her dad told her mom about a British nurse from The first world war.She also talked about how her mom who had three children from her first marriage had the last name White,and to always consider them her brothers.She spoke of being in girl guides and helped to make a quilt for her church.Edith loved read anything about the Royal family and also loved word searches.She was proud of working at Steele City Sales in the office.I hope people will remember this very interesting lady.Rest in Peace.
