Genevieve ‘Jenny’ Agnes O’Callaghan Sydney

It is with heavy hearts that we the family announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and aunt, Genevieve (Jenny) O’Callaghan on February 5th, 2019 at the Halifax Infirmary.

She was born on February 4, 1932, in Sydney, Nova Scotia, to the late Joseph and Mary (Basse) Dawson and grew up in Whitney Pier.

Jenny is survived by her children, Brenda (Kenny) Peters, Eleanor (Glen) Neal, Roy (Susan MacKinnon) O’Callaghan, Terrance (Pam MacDougall) O’Callaghan and grandchildren, Kent (Deanna Pembroke) Peters and Brad Peters, Jeni Neal (Tristan White), Alicia O’Callaghan, Liam and Shannon O’Callaghan; and great-grandchildren, Karlie and Tori Peters. She is also survived by her sister, Dora (Al) Clarke, Ontario.

She was predeceased by her husband, Roy O’Callaghan; sisters, Rose, Big Dora, Alice, Mary (Mimie) and brothers, Peter, Charles (Curly), Raymond, Arthur, Nick, John and Bernie.

Mom was a devoted wife and mother who loved her family dearly, her “Angels”. She had many friends which included her very special long-time friend, Lee MacDougall (deceased). Mom loved to play darts at the Sergeant’s Mess, Club 55, and in her younger years loved to skate. But her favourite thing was dancing with our Dad and they were admired by many when they took to the dance floor. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her but is now dancing in Heaven with our Dad.

Visitation will be held from 4 - 7 pm on Sunday, February 10th, 2019 at T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel, Sydney. Funeral mass will be celebrated Monday, February 11th, 2019 at 11am St. Marguerite Bourgeoys Church, 40 Cabot Street, Sydney, Fr. Bill Burke officiating, with reception to follow. Interment to be held at Resurrection Cemetery, Sydney Forks.

The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and a special thank you to Keith Warren at the Halifax Infirmary for their kindness during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to a local charity of choice. Online condolences may be sent by visiting www.twcurry.com
