Mary Petrossie
Alder Point

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear mother Mary Petrossie, 80, on Saturday, June 22, 2019, at the Northside Guest Home.
Born in North Sydney on January 19, 1939, she was the daughter of the late John and Annie (Hall) Young.
She was a loving and caring Mom and grandmother. She enjoyed Christmas the most of anything else she loved with a passionate heart. Decorating the whole house every year made her the happiest. We will miss her for ever and ever. She will be in our hearts til we meet again in Heaven.
Mary is survived by her daughter Ella and sons John, Calvin, Lee and Chris. She loved her grandchildren Scott, Josh, Christopher, Aaron, Krista, Christine and Kaitlin, and great-granddaughter Zoey. Also left to mourn are her sisters Pauline, Ester and Margaret, and brothers Harley and Kevin.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband Erwin, sisters Yvonne, Anne and Marjorie, and brothers John, Wayne and Don.
Our family would like to thank the nurses and staff at the Northside Guest Home for the compassionate care given to our mother. We will never forget your kindness at such a difficult time.
Visitation for Mary Petrossie will be held Wednesday, June 26, 2019, from 6-9 p.m. in J. M. Jobes Funeral Home, Sydney Mines. The funeral Mass will take place Thursday at 10:30 a.m. in St. Joseph Church, Bras d’Or, with Fr. Peter McLeod officiating. The burial will be in the parish cemetery. Words of comfort may be forwarded to her family at

To all the Petrossi family I extend my most sincere sympathy for your loss.
I had the opportunity to meet Mary just a month or so ago. Sadly I wasn't even aware she was my cousin. She seemed to be such a beautiful soul. RIP Mary.
