Myrtle Alice Rushton
Rushton, Myrtle Alice, 79, Lower Debert, NS. We celebrate a life which left us on Thursday, March 7, 2019 at the Colchester East Hants Health Centre, Truro. Born in Beaverbrook, Col. Co., she was a daughter of the late Erik Johnson of Sweden and Alberta (Pemberton) Johnson of Gore, Hants Co. Myrtle was a member of the Great Village Garden Club and a member of the Nova Scotia Rhythm Cloggers. A mother and grandmother that always called to see how you were, sent cards for all occasions. Made the best sugar cookies, let you watch the movie Annie over and over until the VHS tape wore out, made us "boxes" at Christmas time and always had a hug and a smile for us. We will all miss you and think of you every day.
She is survived by daughters Pearl Bouley (Joe) of Trenton, ON, Heather Baker (Glenn) of Acton, ON, Wanda Vidito (Tim) of Annapolis Valley, Stephanie Rushton of Lower Debert; grandchildren Joanne, Jennifer, Evan, Victoria, Allison, Dawson, Eliza, Matthew; twin sister Rhoda Rushton of Lower Debert; brother Leslie Lloyd (Wanda) of Fort Ellis; several nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her husband, William Roy Rushton; a grandson, Jacob; sister, Harriett Faulkner; foster mom, Liney Archibald. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Mattatall~Varner Funeral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro, from where a Celebration of Life will take place on Wednesday evening, March 13th from 6-8 pm. Donations in memory made be made to Diabetes Canada or to the Children’s Wish Foundation of Nova Scotia.
