Judith Darlene Forrest

2 novembre 194813 février 2021

Our dearly beloved Judy went home to be with her Saviour, Jesus on Feb. 13, 2021 at the age of 72. She was blessed to pass away at home surrounded by her loving family as was her wish. Judy was a devoted follower of Christ for well over 35 years and an active member of the Gospel Hall, Sydney Mines. It was her great privilege to teach Sunday School at the Hall and many Saturday nights would see her at the kitchen table preparing her lessons. Her summers were spent at the cottage in Baddeck with the love of her life enjoying the peacefulness of God’s creation and attending the local Gospel Hall. Mom was a private person known for speaking her mind, her love for Jesus and her definite flare for style with those beautiful church hats. She is survived by her husband of 56 years, Charles ‘Bud’ Forrest and her children; Gwenna (Mark) MacDonald, Ont., Greg Forrest, Ont., Charles Forrest, Ont., Stacey (Sanford) Ochuschayoo, Millcreek, Melissa (Chris) Serroul, Halifax and Timothy (Carissa) Forrest, BC. Her sister Linda Carrier, QC and her 28 grandchildren along with 6 great grandchildren. She is predeceased by her parents, and infant daughter Charlene. A special thanks to her granddaughter, Sarah-Jane who has taken care of her Nanny until the very end as well as the many VON and Palliative Care Nurses. While she will be desperately missed and our hearts are broken, we take great comfort in knowing where our Mother is and in whose presence. But God demonstrates His own love towards us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8. A private family service will take place at the Gospel Hall. Internment to take place in Brookside Cemetery. Memories and condolences may be shared with the family by visiting www.fillmoreandwhitman.com.

Des souvenirs remontent dans ma mémoire et ce ne sont que de beaux moments. Entre autre lorsque nous avions fait le tour du Cabot trail. Notre visite à la forteresse de Louisbourg fut inoubliable. Des moments privilégiés !Elle m'a donner la chance de connaître mon coin de pays dont je suis tomber amoureuse. Ses éclats de rire étaient contagieux avec ces yeux pétillants et son humour. Tu resteras toujours dans mon coeur.
Mes plus sincères condoléances à Bud et toute sa famille et amis(es).
Ta soeur Linda x

Bud & Family: I am so very sorry for your great loss. How she loved every one of you. As I reflect on our younger days walking to school and living as neighbors sharing ideas when our children were small it just seems that we will always be together. Judy would never judge anyone regardless of their behavior. What a special gift to have. She had a way of making each person she spoke to feel comfortable and important because in her heart the were just that "important". I hope your good memories will carry you all through the next chapter of your lives. I will always remember my friend.

So sad I won’t get to talk to Judy anymore, here on earth. Judy and I lived on the same street for years, But I truly got to know Judy at the gospel meetings. We’ve always chatted after the meeting or if I saw her at Walmart. She was always so sweet to me , a wonderful caring person. I love her. I will always remember her by how much she loved god . Sending my condolences to her husband Bud and family. Praying for you all at this difficult time. Jesus said , I am the truth, and the life. (John 14:6) I love that Judy has life for eternity. Judy we will chat again in Heaven. Love Michelle and Donnie

Dear Bud and family,

Judy was a lovely soul and will be sadly missed. She stood strong fast in her love for the Lord. One thing with Judy, you always knew where you stood with her. She spoke her mind and if she didn’t agree with you, well she’d tell you why. Although I lost touch with her and Bud due to personal reasons, I still considered her a friend, a sister in Christ and I missed our conversations very much. I’d often drop in on my way through to or from Sydney. She always had time for you. I’d like convey my condolences at this time but take comfort in knowing she’s with her Lord and Saviour.

Take Care,
Donna Carroll
