She helped by working at the annual Mackerel Derby, the Chedabucto Fire Department, fund-raised and provided gifts and prizes for many bingos, and the annual childrens’ Christmas party. Each Christmas children benefited from her gifts of hand-made toques and mittens. In 2016, she was recognized by her community and received an award from the Honourable Stephen McNeil, Premier of Nova Scotia and Nova Scotia Community Services. She is survived by brother, Cephas ‘Bud’ Wight (Karen Schneider); two sisters, Cathy Garcin (Derek), Debbie Pater (Gus).
