    Kelly and family. We were very saddened to hear that Nessie had passed away. She was a bright light at the Chatsworth, always very friendly. Mom appreciated Nessie encouraging her to participate in events and dinners. I think of her when I fill the wonderful bird feeder that made its way to my yard. The birds are grateful.

    We will all miss Nessie. What we remember most about Nessie is the love Kelly and Christine shared with her. You were there for her all the time. Hold your heads proud for being there for your mom over the years, especially the last few weeks. Nessie was a remarkable person with lots of friends. May God comfort you at this sad time of your life. Brad and Jennifer Weller

    I was her next door neighbour from late 2007 until July 2009. We shared the same birthday. She was 6 hours older than I. We were the best of friends until my husband went into long term care. We both wrote poetry. I will miss her.

    So sorry to hear of Nessie's passing. She was a lovely person and will be truly missed. I had the pleasure of meeting her when I was employed at the Chatsworth, she had a great sense of humor and was a very kind lady.
    RIP my dear.
