It is with great sadness we announce that on Dec 23, Mary White passed. She was 87 years young, born Aug. 14, 1932 in Greenland, NS to the late Ethel (Buckler) and Harold Trimper, the eighth of eleven children.

She is survived by brother Dennis Trimper, and predeceased by brothers, Lawrence, Clyde (infancy), Lewis, Don, Willis, Wilbur, Shirley; sisters, Olive and Helen. She lived her adult life in Waterford, Digby Neck, where she and Freddie raised their family, John, Brian, Lynn and Cathy. After her Freddie passed in 1987 she continued to ensure her family stayed close and connected. She was our Matriarch.

Mary was a proud mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She adored her grandchildren, Cathy Lynn, Adrienne, Sarah, Emily, Jonnie, Jason, Timothy and her great grandchildren, Oakley, Omri, Iris, Fernie, Ramsey and Bennett. Mary loved to socialize, she taught us how important family and friends (and food) are. She would sit down to a Paddington Bear tea party with a toddler, whip up a turkey dinner or arrange a beach picnic, anything to bring us together. Whenever there were family and friends it was an occasion to celebrate.

If you dropped by her home, you wouldn’t have your shoes off and she would be preparing food. Her baking and cooking were famous. The cookie jars were always full. For many years; in all weather, Mary walked. She walked a lot. She certainly holds the record for walking Seawall Hill. She would say her day wasn’t complete without her walk. Mary’s faith was sewn into her very being. Her worn bible a constant comfort and going to church with Nellie and David the highlight of her week. She loved her church, her ministers, and most of all the church social times.

Thank you to Dr. Black, the 2nd floor nurses and staff of Digby Hospital. Arrangements have been entrusted to Jaynes Funeral Home where visitation will be Sunday, December 29, 6-8 pm and service will be held Monday, December 30, 1 pm. Pastor John Purdy officiating.
