Obituary for Mary Braid
The family of Mary Braid sadly announces that she passed on peacefully at the Halifax Infirmary April 19th, 2020.
Mary was born May 1st, 1924 in Halifax to Cecil and Dorothy LeMoine. Mary grew up in the north end and graduated from Bloomfield School in 1941. She went on to work with the CNR which she enjoyed until 1951.
She was a graceful, lively, kind lady who was the life of a party and loved to tell a joke. Mary was a keen bridge player, curler, bowler and loved to dance.
She was loved and appreciated by all who knew her.
Mary loved travelling on summer holidays with the family. After retirement, she and Nelson traveled widely and enjoyed many cruises.
Mary met Nelson Braid, her future husband, in 1943 when his ship was in Halifax waiting to join a convoy. Nelson came to Canada in 1947 and they married in 1949. She is survived by her husband Nelson and three children David (Marion), Robert (Dawn) and Holly and three grandchildren Andrew, Taylor and MacKenzie.
Special thanks to the 7.3 Neurology Department for their care.
A commemoration of Mary's life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers please make a donation to a charity of your choice.
