With great sadness, we, the family, announce the peaceful passing of Florence Vivian Lahey on July 1 ,2022 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney.

Florence is survived by her children, Brian (Donna), Raymond (Frances), Ronnie with whom she resided, Blair (Denise), Glen (Melanie), Neil (Sandra), Carol (Sandy Kennedy), Debbie (Leo Oliver), Judy (Roger Blanchard) and Linda (Hughie Fortune).

Flo was employed by National Sea Products for many years. She also worked side by side with her husband in his canteen. Flo looked forward, each spring, to the hummingbirds returning and her lilac bush to be in full bloom. She was a very kind person and always willing to help anyone in need. Flo especially enjoyed cooking Sunday dinner for all her children to gather and spend time together. She always welcomed visitors with a cup of tea and a treat and enjoyed their company. Flo was an avid Toronto Maple Leaf’s fan.
Visitation for the late Florence Lahey will be held at Immaculate Conception Church in Main-à-Dieu on Saturday, July 23, 2022, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Memorial Mass will be celebrated at 1 p.m. with Fr. Evo Di Pierro officiating. Interment will follow in the parish cemetery, Main-à-Dieu.
