SULLIVAN, Marcella Agnes (Hickey) -

It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of our gentle, sweet, generous and kind-hearted mother. Marcella passed away peacefully at home on July 7th, 2014 into the arms of the Lord. Marcella Agnes Sullivan, the daughter of the late Francis Hickey and Mary Dewan, died in her 91st year.

Predeceased by her husband Joseph Sullivan, sons Patrick and Francis.

Loving mother of Julia wife of Patrick, Sarah wife of Frank, Joe and Peggy, Mike and Clare, John and Claudette, Mary Ellen and Bob Bannon, Teresa and Mike Donnelly, Jim and Monica, Margie and Bill Clarke, Dan and Shelly, Clair, Marcella and fiancé Richard Tilley, Tim and Karen, Anne and Al Doner and Eileen.

Dear sister of Nellie Gifford, Mac Hickey, Marguerite Young, Jeanie Heffernan, Clair Hickey and the late Lucille George and Eileen Maloney. Beloved sister-in-law of the late Marie Sullivan and Marg Goodwin. She will be fondly remembered by her many nieces and nephews.

Marcella was no stranger to work, having spent her years as a teacher, deputy clerk of the township, proprietor of Sullivan’s Store and raising 15 children. She always had a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eye. Her family gravitated to the family home in Ennismore for almost 60 years. The door was always open and another mouth to feed was never a chore. The kettle was quick to boil on the stove for a good cup of tea and there was always a sweet for the soul. Her light will be missed and forever cherished.

Funeral Mass will be celebrated in St. Martin of Tours Church, Ennismore on Friday, July 11th at 11:00 a.m. Interment.

Donations to the Alzheimer Society, the Leukemia Association, or the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation would be appreciated by the family.

Please jot down a memory or bring a picture of Marcella as we are going to compile a memory book. Thank you.
