It is with a heavy heart that we announce the peaceful passing of our dear mother, C.C. Cormier, on Wednesday, May 19, 2021 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney, with her loving family at her side.

Born in Glace Bay in 1943, Cecelia was the daughter of the late Mary Caroline (Jackson) Brewster.

C.C. was an avid believer in the Lord our God and took great pleasure in hearing the word. Cecelia loved entertaining friends, cooking, dancing and singing. She loved her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren who were her whole world.

C.C. will be truly missed by her loving children, Glenn Brewster (Diana), Sydney, John ‘Ali’ Cormier, Sydney, Claudelle MacDonald (James), Dartmouth, Cecil Cormier, Sydney, Laurie Sparks (Stewart), Lake Loon, Richard Cormier (Crystal), Sydney, Vincent Cormier, Sydney and Shauna Cormier, Sydney; 22 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. Cecelia had a special loving bond with her grandson, Shawn MacDonald.

Besides her mother Cecelia was predeceased by her brothers, Raymond, Sidney ‘Sandy’, Joshua and Jerome; sisters, Mary ‘Port’, Elsie ‘Wee Wee’ and great-grandson, Carter.

Memorial service to celebrate the life of Cecelia Cormier will be held at Pier Community Funeral Home, 1092 Victoria Road, Whitney Pier at a later date. Private family interment will take place in St. Anne’s Cemetery, Glace Bay with Fr. Paul Murphy officiating. Covid Protocols will be practiced.

The family would like to acknowledge the kindness, loving care bestowed upon our mother by Shirley Borden. In addition, the family would like to thank Walter Estwick who never faltered, John MacDonald her “Weekend Warrior”, and Ed MacInnis who was always there for her. Special thanks also given to the nurses at the ICU unit that took special care of Cecelia during this difficult time.
