Obituary of Edna McNeil
Edna N. McNeil
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mom, Edna Naomi McNeil, 79, in Dominion, at home surrounded by her family on Friday, April, 14, 2023. Born in Glace Bay, in 1943, Edna was the daughter of the late John Jacob and Clementine (Popwell) Petite.
Our Mom always enjoyed going to bingo with her sisters. Mom was never seen without her granddaughter Kirsten by her side, who held a special place in her heart. Mom worked for IGA and Sobeys until her retirement. Mom lived a very simple and quiet life. She loved being around her family.
Edna was predeceased by her husband of 40 plus years, Peter McNeil; granddaughter, Kirsten; sister, Ruth McNeil; brothers, Art, Jackie and Ronnie Petite.
Edna is survived by her four children, John R. (Kelly) McNeil, Helen (Jerome) McNeil, April McNeil (Frank), Charlene (Bernie) MacNeil; her loving grandchildren, Myranda, Nicole, Tyler, Brooklyn, and Lauren; her sisters, Thelma (Rocky) Ford, Julie(Bernie) O’Donnell, Barbara (Gussie) Murphy, Sandra (David) Nicholson, Keith (Elsie) Petite as well as many nieces and nephews.
As per mom’s wishes, there will be a family service only on Monday, April 24, 2023. The family would like to send a special thank you to Brett Gillis, the Palliative Care team and VON services.
