Etta Bernice (Reid) (Sutherland) Jamieson – 101, Truro.

"My darling Mum" went to be with her Lord on Sunday, May 19, 2024. She passed away at Colchester East Hants Health Centre, Truro, with her daughter, Lauretta (Bonnie) Sutherland, by her side. Born in Brule Shore, she was the eldest daughter of the late William and Bessie (Baird) Reid.

Etta had several jobs during her life, the last one being as a bookkeeper at the Colchester County Court office. She enjoyed music, dancing, bowling, knitting, quilting and cooking. To mark her 100th birthday, she knit 100 hats and donated them to charity.

Etta’s faith was very important to her; she was a member of St. James Presbyterian Church, Truro.

Along with her daughter, Etta is survived by sisters, Lavenia Hunter and Ruth Elliott; sisters-in-law, Carol Jamieson and Joan Boucher (and husband Wayne); several nieces and nephews.

Along with her parents, she was predeceased by her first husband, George (Bud) Sutherland; second husband, Ronald Jamieson; brothers, Fulton Reid, Dickson Reid, Clayton Reid, and Kenneth Reid; sisters, Lyla Curwin and Verna Pinard.

The help provided to Etta by family and friends, and the VON palliative care team is very much appreciated.

In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of choice in Etta’s memory are welcomed.

A graveside service will be held 11 a.m., Thursday, August 29, 2024, at The Falls Cemetery, Reverend Andrew Campbell officiating.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Mattatall – Varner Funeral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro. Tributes, words of comfort and memories may be shared at:
