Obituary

Elva May Young
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, age 87, of Mill Cove. Elva passed away peacefully, at home, on April 11, 2019, with family members present. Born in Mill Cove, she was the daughter of the late Hiram and Rhoda Jollymore. Survived by her children Josephine (Bill) MacDonald, Edmonton; Glendon, Mill Cove; Julia (Rod) Prest, Upper Stewiacke; Doreen, Deep Cove; sisters, Rhoda, Janice, Rhea, Cora, June and Linda; brothers, Layton, Floyd, Aaron, Vernon, Albert and George; grandchildren, Linda, Lisa, Laura, Andrea and John; great grandchildren, Derek, Justin, Amy, Vanessa, Brooklyn, Blake, Rylann, Jackson, Rowan, Trent, baby on the way; many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her husband Cecil, daughter, Wanda; grandson, Pt. Richard Green; sisters, Nellie, Ella, Theresa, Ester, Blanche, Lola, Vera; brothers, Walter, Leo, Reid, Julian, Andrew and Robert in infancy. Elva was an avid reader of historical literature, novels written by Lucy M Montgomery, doing wordsearch and always hitting the "word target" , playing 45s at home and collecting donkey ornaments. She enjoyed reliving the humor from days gone by and adding her quick, humorous wit to many occasion. She loved walking in the woods with dad and later with her children. Her love for animals was evident when many stray or injured animals were brought home to be nurtured back to health. She leaves behind her treasured cat "Miss Kitty" . Moms message to her few true friends was that she was glad to have met and gotten to know each of you. The family will receive visitors 4-7 pm Monday, April 15th in the Ronald A. Walker Funeral Home, Hubbards. Funeral service will be held 2 p.m. Tuesday, April 16th in St. Marks Anglican Church, Mill Cove. Rev. Bill MacDonald officiating. Burial to follow in St. James Anglican Church Cemetery, Fox Point. In celebration of Elva's life we invite you for fellowship and refreshments at the Lions Club, Fox Point following the committal. Our family would like to thank all the doctors and nurses at the South Shore Regional Hospital and all her V.O.N care team. Online condolences can be made to www.rawalker.ca

It's with a mixed array of emotion that I fondly look back and reflect on many childhood memories at Grandmas. She was quiet, but mischievous in a fun loving way. Kind to all. A big puddle of love for her animals. She had many names from us grand kids - grandma, grimace, Grammy, grams and then the next generation adding the title GREAT, as she indeed was great! I'm grateful for last week while I was at her house to spend time with her even if she was too frail to know. As I return to NS for the funeral im both happy and proud to look back with friends and family and share more memories as we celebrate Elva Young one final time all together. May she be at peace eternally. I love you grandma.
