John Joseph Currie
Sydney / Sydney Mines

John Joseph Currie peacefully passed away at home in Sydney on Christmas day after a brave battle with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.  Johnnie had a rich and fulfilling life.  A life-long educator and community leader, he leaves behind his wife of 55 years, Kate Carney (Francis) and his two daughters, Suzie Currie (Dennis) and Kerry Lynn Mercer (Craig), his brothers Dougal (Bev) and Bernie (Patricia) Currie, sister Sharon (Alex) O’Neill and great aunt, Sister Teresa Currie.  He is predeceased by his parents John and Josie, his sisters Eleanor and Claire, and brother Liam.  We will deeply miss Johnnie’s quick wit, humour, quiet generosity, and his dedication to many Cape Breton communities.  The family is so very thankful for the personal care and support from Dr. Michel and Louise McKeough and Manning Jobes and his staff.  A Celebration of John’s life will be held at Holy Family Church in Sydney Mines on Monday, December 30, 2019, at 10 am, with Fr. Jim Oliver officiating, followed by a gathering at the Parish Hall. Donations in John’s memory may be made to the Canadian Lung Association, Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Northside Hospital Foundation. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to his family at
