Born in Little Anse, she was a daughter of the late Frederick and Josephine (Boudreau) Samson. She had many jobs, owned and operated her own business, but was most proud of her work as a nurse’s aid in the children’s ward, at the hospital in Guelph, Ontario.

She is survived by two daughters, Debbie Weissent, Halifax; Donna (Kevin) Olsen, Middle Sackville; two grandchildren, Cameron Olsen, Zachary Weissent (Andrea); great-grandson, Gavin; brother, Rudolph (Virginia) Samson, Louisdale; two sisters, Betty Tandy, Dartmouth; Dorothy Morrison, Arichat; three sisters-in-law, Liz Samson, Petit de Grat; Denise Samson, Guelph, Ontario; Margaret Samson, Cape Auget; many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband of 55 years, Harold Weissent; five brothers, Henry Samson, Oswald Samson, William Samson, Lawrence Samson, George Samson; three sisters, Alma Boudreau, Lorraine Forster, Bernadette Clannon. Memorial donations may be made to continuing care facilities such as Arborstone Enhanced Care Facility, Halifax, St. Anne Centre, Arichat, or a charity of choice.
