Obituary

Edith Mae MacInnis

Sydney Mines

 

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Edith Mae MacInnis on Monday, January 16, 2023, at home. She was born on December 21, 1932, in Southside Boularderie, to William and Peggy Ryan. After a long and full life, she passed away peacefully at the age of 90, surrounded by family and friends in Sydney Mines, Cape Breton. 

Edith lived a life guided by the Catholic faith. She was an avid bowler for many years and could often be found with an apron on baking biscuits, blueberry cakes, or apple pies. She was best known for her heart of gold, witty sense of humour, contagious laugh, strength, and love of animals. 

Edith is survived by her children, Maggie (Wiebe) Myers, Christina Jobes, Brian (Darlene) MacInnis, Theresa MacInnis, Valerie MacInnis, Wanda (Christopher) Saxman, Kelly (Gary) Gardiner, Patricia (Trevor) MacInnis; siblings, Shirley (Peter) Harrison, Alex (Mary-Anne) Ryan, Paula (Wayne) Currie, Cindy (Bobby) MacLean; 13 grandchildren; 7 great-grandchildren; pet, Mruu; many nieces and nephews; as well as numerous brothers and sisters-in-law. 

 Besides her parents, Edith was predeceased by her loving husband of 54 years, Alexander ‘Sandy’ MacInnis; her first husband, Johnny Jobes; children, Patricia Jobes, Kevin Jobes, Billy and Sandy MacInnis; siblings, Dewy Myers, Bessie, Christy, Bernadette, Wilma and Johnny; and numerous brothers and sisters-in-law. 

 The family wishes to send a special thank you to the staff of VON, homecare and palliative care; Dr. Michel McKeough and Louise; and her private caretaker and friend, Norma Barrie. 

 In lieu of flowers, the family welcomes donations to a charity of your choice in her honor.
