Obituary of Virginia "Vergie" Cameron
It is with profound sorrow we announce the passing of Mary Virginia “Vergie” Cameron, 97, of Stellarton on Monday, February 7, 2022.
Vergie was proud to have resided at her Foster Ave. home with care givers aid until February of last year. She passed away at Glen Haven Manor on the first anniversary of residing there, after a brief illness.
She was predeceased by her parents, Hugh George “Papa George” and Mary Ellen (MacInnis) Cameron; also her aunt Charlotte who resided with the Cameron family. Vergie was the last member of the close-knit Cameron family. She was also predeceased by brothers Wilfred and George and sister Eleanor Cameron.
Vergie attended Our Lady of Lourdes Parochial Schools, St. Bridget’s , St. Mary’s and Stellarton Jr/Sr High. She devoted her life to caring for her parents, aunt and siblings. Vergie was extremely faithful to her Catholic Faith and practiced a daily routine of prayer, devotion and meditation. The peaceful and out-of-the-way private Cameron Home was the center of family life where they welcomed and enjoyed all visitors.
Vergie is survived by cousins Betty MacKenzie, Shirley Farrell (Bernie), Jeannine Kirincich and long time family friend Stephen Kirincich.
We thank the V.O.N. for their kind previous care, her recent past home care givers Nancy, Sharon and Hannah, and one year of kind and respectful dedication to her by the Glen Haven staff.
Vergie always ended every topic and occurrence with her favourite saying. Those visiting her would hear this saying dozens of times. We would be remiss if her life’s story did not end with this saying “Strange but True”
Her funeral service will be held 11 am Monday, May 16 from Our Lady of Lourdes Roman Catholic Church with Father Evo DiPierro officiating. Burial will be in Lourdes Cemetery.
