It is with regret that we announce the passing on Monday, October 31, 2022, of our dear Mother, Blanche Isabelle (Sutherland) McNutt at Cedarstone Enhanced Care, Truro.

Mom had a strong work ethic as a young girl on the farm at The Falls helping her father and then on the farm at Nuttby Mountain. She liked to knit, make quilts, and in later years, doing many picture puzzles. She was a member of Truro Heights Baptist Church, Women’s Circle in the church and Women’s Institute of North River.
