It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Thelma Margaret Cushnie (nee, Small) on January 28, 2020. Beloved wife of Alexander Wilfred Cushnie for 71 years, dear mother of Wilfred Alexander Cushnie (wife, Charlotte) and Mary Margaret Mansour (husband, Ed). Thelma was the proud grandma of six grandchildren: Elizabeth, Richard, Jerusa, Joseph, Alexandra, and Charles, and great-grandma to fourteen greatgrandchildren.
Thelma loved animals, gardening, and music. She was an accomplished accordionist and horsewoman. Thelma was actively involved in her church community and drove for Meals on Wheels for several years. Thelma never hesitated to lend a helping hand and a bright smile to everyone who crossed her path. The family would like to extend heartfelt thanks to the staff at St. Joseph’s Life Care Centre for their thoughtful care of Thelma during her stay there, and during her final hours. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Alzheimer’s Association or St. Joseph’s Life Care Centre. Family and friends will be received at the TOLL FUNERAL HOME, 55 Charing Cross St. Brantford, on Monday, February 3, 2020 from 6pm to 8pm and Tuesday, February 4, 2020 from 11am to 12pm with a funeral service to follow in the Chapel at 12pm.
