We are heartbroken to announce the passing of our mother, Thelma Elaine Hardy of Port Morien, NS.
Elaine was born on October 4, 1935 and died Sunday, November 24th, 2019 at Seaview Manor in Glace Bay.
Elaine, known as "Chookey" by many, loved to spend time at the rink, theatre or sports fields watching her grandchildren. She loved Bingo and in her earlier years, she and Rod would spend most Friday nights playing darts at the Port Morien Fire Hall with their friends.
Elaine is survived by her children, Rhodena Dearn (Robert), Roland Hardy (Shirley), and Dorothy McLean (Michael) and nephew Donald.
She is lovingly remembered by her grandchildren, Kyle (Kristyn), Michael (Rebecca), Jessica, Steven, Jordan, and Noah and great grandchildren, Gabriel and Henrik. She is also survived by her sisters, Mary, Dawn (Don), brother in-law Tom, and sister in-law Josie. She will be forever remembered by her numerous nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.
Elaine was predeceased by her husband, Roderick, parents, Thomas and Viva Robinson, sisters, Colleen and Avada and her brother, Vinal.
