Born in Glace Bay on July 10, 1932 she was the eldest daughter of the late Alfred and Christine (MacPhee) Blois. Ma was a kind and caring woman who always put her family first and her humour and spunk will be missed deeply. Ma loved to cook, bake, crochet and share her goodies with her family. She is survived by her children Rita Desveaux, Walter Jr. (Jacqueline), John (Diane); grandchildren Laura, Matthew and Johnathan; sisters Eleanor (Graham) Brownell, Sylvia (Joe)Wrice, Rose (Kevin) Baldwin, Rita (Kieth) Mulvey, Linda (Gerry) Croney; brothers Jackie (Sally), Lawrence (Colleen) and Reggie (Glenda); Uncle Teddy (Lou), Hamilton, Ont., as well as several nieces and nephews. Besides her parents she was also predeceased by her loving husband Walter and son-in-law Raymond Desveaux; brothers Alfred Jr. and Jerry Blois. Visitation will take place Wednesday, October 17, 2012 from 2-4 and 7-9 pm and funeral mass will be Thursday, October 18th at 10 am in the Parish of Saint Leonard with Father Ray Huntley officiating.
