Nellie Flaherty (Unik)
Passed away peacefully in her sleep on August 2, 2018, at the age of 87. Born in Selkirk, Manitoba, Nellie moved to Ontario as a young woman where she met Ken, her loving husband of 67 years. She will be remembered as a devoted mother and grandmother, a wonderful cook, a vibrant member of several bowling leagues, and the best seamstress in Brantford! She will be sorely missed by her husband Ken, her children Gary, Cheryl, Ron and Dennis, their spouses Lori, David, Donna and Barbara, her three adoring grandchildren Kris, Sarah and Scott and 4 great-grandchildren Kaeden, Rhyse, Lucas and Jordyn. Nellie is survived by her sister Anne Gowryluk and brother Lawrence Unik of Selkirk, Manitoba. The family would like to extend their deepest gratitiude to the staff of Hardy Terrace Nursing Home for their compassionate and dedicated care of Nellie; Dr. Abbott for her conscientious medical care; Lyndsay, Holly and Deborah of Branches of Life for their attentive and caring private nursing services; and George and Kelly of Brantford Lift for providing Nellie with much needed transportation services. The family extends a warm thank you and gratitude to friends and extended family for their concern, support and loving visits that enriched Nellie’s final days. Nellie’s final care has been entrusted to the TOLL FUNERAL HOME, where she will be cremated, followed by a private, family interment ceremony. To honour Nellie’s memory, donations can be made to the Alzheimer Society of Brant.
