Nellie passed away peacefully at Terraceview Lodge, where she had been a resident for the past 5 years. She was a teacher and taught at Riverside, Clarence Michiel and Parkside Schools. She was active in her church, enjoyed working in her flower garden, loved square dancing and spending time with family. After retiring Nellie and Ed took a trip across Canada and spent many enjoyable winters in Arizona.
Your gentle face and patient smile
With sadness we recall
You had a kindly word for each
and died beloved by all
The voice is mute and stilled the heart
That loved us well and true
Ah, bitter was the trial to part
from one so good as you
You are not forgotten loved one
Nor will you ever be
As long as life and memory last
We will remember thee
We miss you now, our hearts are sore
As time goes by we miss you more
Your loving smile, your gentle face
No one can fill your vacant place
Nellie was predeceased by her parents Nellie and Harold Swain and her sister Mable Shields.
Nellie will forever be loved and missed by her husband Ed of 73 years, her daughter Lynne (Donald), son Dale (Gail), grandchildren Brett (Marlene), Rae-Ann (Kevin) and Ryan, and six great grandchildren Kyrie, Kyle, Jared, Paige, Logan and Kamryn.
