Obituary For Adeline Margaret Landry (Beaton)

Adeline Margaret Landry (Beaton), of Fairview, passed away peacefully in her sleep at age 86 on 12th January 2024 at her home in Whitehills Long Term Care Centre in Hammonds Plains, NS.

Adeline was born in New Waterford to John Alex and Jessie (Gillis) Beaton. She was a proud member of the 1959 graduating class of Saint Rita’s Hospital School of Nursing and worked as a registered nurse in Winnipeg and at the IWK Hospital in Halifax before marriage. Adeline was a life-long learner, an enthusiastic member of the Red Hat Society, and she loved all music but especially blues music, volunteering for many years at the Atlantic Jazz Festival. Adeline enjoyed line dancing, exercise, travel, knitting, and spending time with her family and friends. Adeline's cup was always half full, every room she was in was better for her presence, and she will be lovingly remembered as the greatest mom, ever.

She was predeceased by her husband, Don, her parents, and her 13 siblings: Mae (Hannigan), Anne (in infancy), Elizabeth (in infancy), Elizabeth (Sister John de Brebeuf of the Ursulines of Jesus), Ranald, Jessie (Howell), Edith (Langley), John, Leo, Catherine, Leona, Elizabeth (Greene), and Coady. She is survived by her sons, Mitchell (Jennifer), Gary (Brenda), Blair (Deanna), and Craig (Mark Olivier), as well as grandchildren Mathieu (Jennifer), Spencer, Travis, Emma (Adam), Olivia, Jessica, and Ethan, great-grandchildren Callum, Violet, and Palmer and her many treasured nephews and nieces.

Adeline’s family is grateful to the staff at Whitehills for their care. Cremation has taken place. A funeral mass for Adeline will be held at St. Benedict's Catholic Church in Halifax on 30 January at 12:15, with interment to follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Lower Sackville. Family flowers only, and in lieu of flowers we ask that you consider a donation to the Alzheimer’s Society of Nova Scotia or the charity of your choice.

    To the Landry families. I am so sorry for the loss of your Mom! She is someone I have very fond memories back to my earliest memories. I remember when we used to come to Halifax to visit Adeline. That was always the most important part of our trip-even if it wasn't the reason for the trip. And when we arrived we got the biggest welcome...always...and delicious baked goods 🙂 All the kids were sent away to let Adeline and Mom chat for what seemed like hours. So much laughter and love between the two of them. That has lasted all these years. I cherish those memories as I believe they helped shape me to who I am today. Those visits over 55+ years taught me the value of true friendship! Cherish all the great memories you have of your Mom. I will always! RIP❤️

    Dear Mitch, Gary, Blair, Craig and families, Whenever I think of Aunt Adeline I think of her big, beautiful smile and joyful laugh. Visiting your family home always involved great food and lots of fun. Her baking in particular always kept me coming back and I especially loved her birthday cake creations. I followed in her nursing footsteps and with great pride I wore her nursing graduation uniform at my nursing graduation. Every celebration I had I could count on her and Uncle Don to be there. I cherished her visits to Kamloops which would include going out line dancing or checking out a band. If there was music and dancing she was in. My daughter is named Addie which was a way to honour her. I loved her deeply and these last years I have missed her dearly. As I mentioned to Gary I now like to think of Adeline and Uncle Don reunited in heaven and I am so happy for them. We were so blessed to have her in our lives. Sending my love to all of you❤️

    Dear Mitchell, Gary, Blair, & Craig & Families, There are no words to express how saddened I was to hear of your Mom's passing....and a rush of memories came flooding back. My sisters and I enjoyed so many great times in our earlier years in Halifax with your Mom and Dad--and all of you when you were just little boys. We shared a lot of fun and a lot of laughter. She was an amazing, kind, compassionate, and caring woman with a wonderful sense of humor and fun. I hope you all will find comfort and solace in the love and caring of family and friends and in your many memories of happier times. I will be keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time and as you say your farewells. RIP dear Adeline. With love and my deepest sympathy, Florence Milley

    My deepest condolences to the Landry family. I've only met Adeline a few times later in her life and I wish I had gotten to know her for who she truly was. I remind myself everyday how blessed I am to have married her granddaughter Emma. Her name will live on through her great-granddaughter Violet Adeline Earle. May you rest in peace Adeline.
