Brenda Roberts
71 years old, of Halifax, Nova Scotia, passed away at her home on September 11th, 2019. She was predeceased by her parents, Harry and Margaret, nephew John, and loving husband of 42 years, Ron. She is survived by her sister, Margaret “Peggy” (Robert), Red Lake, ON; daughter Laura “Beth” (Jay), Penacook, New Hampshire; son Andrew (Tracy), Calgary, AB; grandsons Peyton, Graydon and Simon; niece Cathy, ON; nephew Jamie, BC; uncle Murray (Norma), NB; sister-in-law Sheila, BC, and many wonderful cousins, most of whom live in New Brunswick.

In stories of her early years, she fondly remembered large family gatherings that included numerous aunts, uncles and cousins on a family farm. For many years, Brenda was a dedicated, hard-working nurse in several practice areas, mainly geriatrics and mental health. Whenever she could, she would play piano and sing for patients, bringing music and joy into their lives. Brenda went on to share her musical talents by playing organ for a the Anglican churches of, including St. Andrew’s, Indian Harbour, (where she also served as Co-Warden for a time); St. James, West Dover; St. Peter’s, Hackett’s Cove, and St. John’s in Peggy’s Cove. After retiring from nursing, Brenda and Ron created Copperleaf Antiques, where she enjoyed sourcing, refinishing and selling antiques, and making friends in the industry. Brenda was a brilliant cook, and she enjoyed feeding friends and family marvelous home-cooked meals, or gathering with them for coffee, her tasty baked goods, laughter and discussion.

It was Brenda’s wish that she not have a funeral or visitation. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Andrew’s Church, addressed: c/o Rev Andrew Cooke, St. Peter’s Church, 10030 Peggy’s Cove Rd, Hackett’s Cove, NS, B3Z 3J3. Online condolences can be made at

I am so sad to hear of Brenda's passing. She and I met by happenstance in 2013 while I was working in Upper Tantallon and she was still living in Indian Harbour. Needless to say, her wry sense of humour and no-holds-barred commentary about ... well ... everything ... endeared her to me early on. She never hesitated to dole out advice and although it sometimes stung, it was always given with the best of intentions. Brenda was a great story teller and loved to pull fascinating tales from her catalogue of youthful adventures which almost always ended with one of her brassy, trademark laughs. Even after I left Nova Scotia for the far north in 2016, she continued to stay in touch, provide guidance and sometimes chide me for my blunt Facebook posts. Oddly enough, after not hearing from her all summer, I emailed this past Monday to touch base, only to find out this morning that she had passed away. She will be dearly missed and I will always remember her as a fantastic, interesting lady and a great friend. - John Williams, Yellowknife, NT

Our condolences to Brenda's family and friends. We got to know her and Ron through the antiques business. We enjoyed seeing her frequently when she lived in the Peggy's Cove area.

Condolences to all of Brenda’s family, she will be greatly missed. I only knew Brenda for the past 15 years, mostly with regards to the antique business. Her wit and sense of humour made each encounter a total delight. But what I most remember, was how much love she shared with her husband Ron, and how much fun they had together doing just about anything. A most wonderful couple.

We were very sad to learn of Brenda's passing. Her sense of humour kindness and musical abilities will always be remembered. We thoroughly enjoyed many visits, and appreciated her giving the piano some exercise. She always loved our family, and thoroughly enjoyed participating in family dinners. I don't believe there was ever a dog she didn't like. We are making a donation to the SPCA in Saint John in her memory. We will miss you greatly, thanks for being there when we needed you. And as you always told us at the end of every conversation, We shall "Carry on the Good fight".
