Obituary of Mary Mildred Hamood
Mary Mildred Hamood (Colp)
In her passing, on May 19th, 2023, Mary has been reunited with her first grandchild, Johnnie. Born April 21, 1935, in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, Mary eventually made her way here where she settled. She was a Jill of all trades who held multiple jobs but thrived when it came to raising her children and grandchildren.
Mom/Nan loved the finer things in life, like a good soap opera, $3 Crossword tickets and a good magazine. You would not catch her without her signature pink nail polish, a Twinkie, and French Vanilla in hand.
During her 20 plus years spent at 55 Minto Street, Nan made many long-lasting friendships. You would often find her in the lounge playing a game of Bingo, Scat or working on her puzzles.
Nan was so proud of her children and grandchildren. She would move mountains for those she loved. Nan was always so selfless, not because she had to be, but because of who she was. We could always count on Nan to fill our bellies and teach us a thing or two when it came to Super Nintendo. From cookies, to popcorn, to her ability to whip up a pot of Kraft Dinner like no other, Nan did it all.
Nan will be forever and lovingly remembered by her three children:
Brenda, Conway and the baby, Nancy (Kevin). Her grandchildren, Connie, Dannie, Stephanie, Kayla, and Jenna: as well as multiple great grandchildren who loved and adored her just as much as she did them.
While the hurt is immeasurable, it does bring great comfort and strength knowing Johnnie welcomed Nan with the biggest of hugs and his infamous smile. We can rest assured knowing they are happy together.
We will continue to remember her by doing what we can for others; lend a helping hand when you can and by never giving up on those that you love. We will remember her in warm summer breezes and freshly bloomed daffodils.
Our biggest thank you to the staff of Victoria Haven Nursing Home, who over the past year and a half, showed Nan the utmost patience and compassion. For always making sure "Mama H." was taken care of and for making that place a home. The special bonds and relationships did not go unnoticed, nor will they be forgotten.
As per Nan's wishes, there will be no visitation. A private family service will be held at a later date. Arrangements have been entrusted to the care and compassion of T.J. Tracey Cremation and Burial Specialists, 370 Reserve St., Glace Bay, 902.849.4199.
In lieu of flowers, to show someone you care, buy them a French Vanilla. Nan would love that.
