Mary Bernice Dewolfe


Mary Bernice Dewolfe

It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Mary Bernice Dewolfe, 66 of Port Williams on May 1, 2019 in the QEII Hospital, Halifax. She was predeceased by her parents Charles Allen and Lois (Bea) Morine, step-parents Etta Allen and Francis Russell, an infant brother, Joe and brother-in-law, Bobby Dewolfe. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, aunt and friend, who will be remembered for her unconditional love, patience, and kindness. She grew up in Canning, and attended Woodside School, Canning School and Cornwallis District High School where she graduated. She worked for the Bank of Nova Scotia in Canning, and retired to be a stay at home mother and care for her two daughters. Mary loved baking sweets, doing jigsaw puzzles, and spending time with her dog Shadow. She was a personal stylist and cut hair (or lack of hair) for many brothers-in-law and her husband. She also enjoyed trips to Tim Horton’s and Frenchys in her free time. In the summer, she loved spending time at her husband’s family cottage at Medford Beach, however;  hated the mosquitoes that were always attracted to her. She was a soccer fan and always watched her daughter and granddaughter’s games. Mary was very smart and witty, with an incredible sense of humor. She loved to tease and always had a quick comeback to any situation. She was a spiritual person, and believed there was life after death. She is survived by her husband Bill Dewolfe, Port Williams; daughters, Shelley (Randy Geddes), Waterville and Debbie (Chad Corbin) Kentville; granddaughters, Kristen Bennett, Canning; Chloe Grant, Port Williams; grandson, Andrew Scott, Waterville; brother, Richard Allen (Barb), Lumsdens Dam; sisters, Gayleen Connelly (Ken Toth), Kitchener, Ontario; Gloria Porter (Terry), Canning; Deborah Bigelow (Earl Parker), South Rawdon; Cheri Dandurand, Edmonton Alberta; step-brothers, Eugene Manley (Linda), Wayne Manley, and Reg Manley. She is also survived by nieces, nephews, brothers and sisters-in-law and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Cremation has taken place. There will be no visitation or funeral service, by request. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, July 6, 2019 at the family cottage at Medford Beach for family and friends. Donations in memory may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or Valley Regional Hospital.  Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the White Family Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Kentville.
