Obituary of Elizabeth Neary
Caroline "Elizabeth" Neary, age 77, slipped away peacefully, surrounded by family, on November 23, 2023 in St. Martha's Regional Hospital, Antigonish. Our hearts are so heavy for the loss of our mother, grandmother, aunt, sister and friend. Born June 28, 1946, she was the chosen daughter of the late Katie (Delaney) and John George MacLellan of Big Marsh, Antigonish County.
She had a long career of caring for other as a care provider for countless people, as well as a dietary aide at the R. K. MacDonald Nursing Home before retiring to care for, and spend time with, her husband, the late Robert (Bob) Neary.
She was known for her beautiful baking, her spicy personality, and her love of dancing that she taught her husband Bob. Together they spent countless Saturday nights going to dances and ceilidhs.
She was predeceased by her birth parents, Ada Casey and Howard Burns and several siblings.
She is survived by her son Robert (Terry) and their son Justin (Melissa) and grandson Benjamin, Fairmont Road; daughter Tracy (Lloyd) Simmonds and their son Isaac, Dartmouth; daughter Cathy (Chris) Currie and their children Ashton and Delaney and grandson Gage, Edmonton; son Jimmy (April) and step-daughter Wynter, Calgary.

Our deep thanks to Dr. Rod MacNeil, Dr. Gordon Simms, Dr. Fogerty, the Palliative Care Team, Byron Cleversey from respiratory therapy and Sister Catherine MacGillivray and the spiritual care team for the beautiful support of our mom. Our thanks to Dr. William Booth for his many years of care of our mother. And last, but not least, many thanks to Meghan and all mom's coffee friends at the Tall and Small Cafe that was her daily social visit.
