Daughter of the late William Sabinus O’Neill and late Rose Edna McCormick. Predeceased by her sister Kathleen, and her brothers William, Desmond (late Doris Lavell) and Gerald (late Louise Cassasa). Loving mother of Maureen, Anne-Louise (Gaston Robitaille), O’Neill, Mary Ann (Fred Hartstock), and Stephen (Peggy French). Much-loved grandmother of Alainna (Jeremy), Bryan (Veronique), and Yves, and step-great-grandmother of Coralie (Mikey). Fondly remembered by her many nieces and nephews.
