Our Dear Mom, Frances A. (MacNeil) Presseau passed away on Friday, December 31, 2021, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney, surrounded by her family.

Born on August 20,1940 in Sydney, Frances was the daughter of the late John and Marguerite MacNeil of Sydney.

Frances was immensely proud of her family and leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories. Her proudest accomplishments were her three girls. Mom loved nothing more than a good joke, with a contagious laugh to follow. Mom enjoyed cards with the girls, bingo and reading a good book. She will be missed by all who knew her.

Frances is survived by three girls, Natalie Blundon (Scott), Florence (Brent Sutherland), Roberta (Darren MacNeil); five grandchildren, Carl (Erin) Blundon, Spencer (Brittany) Blundon, Leah (Brad) Gibson, Erin (Matt), and Emma MacNeil; two great-grandchildren, Myles and Dylan Blundon, with one baby Gibson on the way; one sister, Kaye (Joe) Dominque; niece, Debbie and nephew, Jason, Glenn.

Besides her parents, Frances was predeceased by son-in-law, Warren Blundon and nephew, David Hudson.

Thank you to City Home Makers, the staff at the Cove Guest Home (her angels), Dr. M. Keating, Dr. J. Ritter, Emergency dept and 4A, for your care and compassion given to our mom during her time of need.
