Funeral service for the late Lorna ‘Jean’ Langille, 78, of Country Harbour Lake, Guysborough County, was held October 30 in Kirk Memorial United Church, Aspen, with Reverend Derek Elsworth officiating. Burial was in Hillside Cemetery, Country Harbour.
Mrs. Langille died October 24, 2019, at home.
Born December 29, 1940, in Aspen, she was a daughter of the late Robert and Kathleen Weir (Mitchell) Malloy. Coming from a very musical family, she started singing and playing guitar at a very young age. She entertained many people over the years, especially at family sing-alongs and at local community and church-going events. A homegrown genealogist, she had a very astute memory for reciting family vital statistics. She was a talented homemaker, producing home cooked meals, bread and biscuits, including special cookies for her nephew Frankie. Her hospitality always ensured that guests never left her house hungry. Until her illness, she was an avid church goer and, as an Elder, worked tirelessly to ensure the community had a place of worship.
She is survived by son, Robert (Anouk), Ottawa, Ontario; two daughters, Darlene (Mike) Smith, Country Harbour Lake; Teresa Langille (Patrick), Truro; seven grandchildren, Adam (Hannah) Smith, Country Harbour Lake; Amy Smith (Eamonn), Ontario; Megan Langille (Shannon), Antigonish; Arietta Smith (Travis), Country Harbour; Brynn (Colin) Budden, Lower Sackville; Aaron Reddick, Grande Prairie, Alberta; Alexander Langille, Moncton, New Brunswick; four great-grandchildren, Cody Rossong, Avery Smith, Jacob and Ethan McDonald; two sisters, Norma Phyllis Weir MacDonald, Natalie Kathleen ‘Kay’ Grech, Oshawa, Ontario; daughter-in-law, Shauna Langille, Moncton, New Brunswick; several nieces, nephews and their families.
She was predeceased by her husband, Charles; son, Charley; five brothers, Walter Francis (Dupsey), Edmund Archibald (Eddie), Arthur Harold (Boodie), Lester Clyde and Elmer Graham; three sisters, Margaret Eileen Cumminger, Audrey Mildred Beaton; Elaine Elizabeth, in infancy.
