IN LOVING MEMORY of
LUCY REBECCA (nee TAKER) FLETCHER
December 5, 1926 — March 17, 2016
Born in Timmins, Ont., she grew up in New Glasgow, N.S., and remained a Maritimer at heart. She was predeceased by her parents Percy and Bertie (nee Keating) Taker, brothers Laurence [“Tiny”] and Roy Taker and sister Greta (Don) Macdonald. She is survived by sons Don (Mary Jo), Paul (Annie), daughters Marla and Becky (Ken) and sister Blanche (Reg) Kendall, former partner Donald Fletcher and grandchildren Chelsey, Dana, Ian, Jacob, Kevin, Leo and Meghan. Lucy was a determined, proud woman who gave her all to raise four children to each become strong, creative and independent individuals. Her secretarial work served her well in educational, banking, real estate, military, legal and government settings over the years. She valued education highly, and constantly encouraged those around her to continue learning and seize every opportunity to better themselves. She loved music – especially jazz – as well as reading, gardening and being in the company of family and friends. She had a keen sense of humour, always ready to share a laugh or an adventure. A compassionate and loyal friend, Lucy was also an unforgettable daughter, sister, mother, aunt and grandmother who will be sadly missed. Visitation will be held at the Westboro Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes, 403 Richmond Rd, Ottawa on Wednesday March 23, 2016 from 1-2 p.m. followed immediately by a service in the chapel at 2p.m. Burial at Pinecrest Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations in Lucy’s memory to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada would be appreciated.
