LANDRY, Mary Elizabeth - Louisdale It is with heavy hearts and profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved mother, nanny, sister, aunt and friend, Mary Elizabeth Landry of Louisdale, Nova Scotia. Elizabeth died peacefully surrounded by her loving family at the VG hospital in Halifax, on February 15th, 2023. Elizabeth was born in 1944 to the late Arthur and Almeda (Marchand) Boudreau of Louisdale, NS. She met the love of her life, Joseph Landry, and they were married in 1962. Together they raised 2 daughters, Brenda and Tanya. As a wife and mother, she was the embodiment of unconditional love. She gave her heart and soul to her family, and her selflessness knew no bounds. She worked tirelessly to provide for her husband and children, and she never hesitated to put their needs before her own. As a grandmother, she showered her grandsons; Jevan, Adam, Brandon and Connor with unconditional love and affection. She was a constant presence in their lives, and her love and devotion to them was beyond measure. They loved coming to Nanny and Papa’s house in Cape Breton and Nanny loved to spoil them with their favorite treats. They never left her home without a care package full of food made with love. As the older sister, she was the person who made her siblings feel special and loved. She was kind and generous, always willing to lend them a hand or cook them a meal. She had a heart of gold, and much compassion and empathy for her younger siblings. They knew that they could always count on her. Elizabeth, aka Zabeth, or 99 to her friends, was the kind of person who could light up a room with her smile, her laughter and her antics. She had a way of making everyone around her feel special, and she had a gift for bringing people together, be it around the table for food, a game of cards, or to offer you a deal at her flea market table. Her ability to connect with others was truly remarkable, and her friendship was a gift that many will cherish. In addition to her role as a mother and grandmother, Elizabeth was a valued member of her community. She was an active member of the St. Louis C.W.L for over 30 years as well as a member of the Fleur de Lis seniors club. She was honored to be awarded the tile of “Valentine’s Queen” in 2019. She was known to many as the “Flea Market Queen” and wore that crown with pride and, as her godson Lester put it “For, even what others discarded, she found value and goodness.” She met and made many wonderful friends at the many flea markets she attended. She enjoyed playing BINGO, making crafts, especially flowers arrangements for headstones, baking and talking on the phone. Her warmth and loving nature made her a joy to be around, and she will be deeply missed by all who knew her. Elizabeth is survived by her daughters Brenda (Jeff) O’Brien; their children Jevan (Catherine) O’Brien, Adam (Kiley Burke) O’Brien; Tanya Landry, her children Brandon Bungay and Connor Bungay and their father Ricky Bungay. She is also survived by her sisters Jean (Don) Baccardax, Sharon (Wayne) Marchand, Rosalie (Eric) Day, Geralyn Boudreau, and her bonus brother/nephew Arthur (Pam) Boudreau and Paul (Erleen) Sampson who was like a son to her and whom she loved dearly. She is survived by her sister-in-law Dora (Walter) Theriault, brother-in-laws George McKelvie and Francis Sampson. She was predeceased by her parents Arthur and Almeda Boudreau, her loving husband Joe, her in laws Charles and Cecilia Landry, her sister Catherine Ann Sampson, her brother-in-law George Landry, sister-in-law Mary Anne McKelvie and her dear friend Bennie Benoit. Elizabeth will be dearly missed by her many nieces and nephews, her many good friends especially Shirley Benoit, Mary Jane Boudreau and the remaining members of her card group. The family is grateful to Dr. Collins for his many years of care and concern given to both her and Joe. And to Paul and Eric for filling in as chauffeur, handyman, and all-around help, they were never more than a phone call away and she certainly appreciated their help, kindness and love. Although her passing has left a great void in our lives, we take comfort in the memories we have of her. We will honor her by carrying on the values she instilled in us - kindness, compassion, laughter, and a deep appreciation for the beauty of life. Rest in peace, dear Elizabeth. You will be forever loved and missed, and your legacy will live on through the lives of those you touched. Cremation has taken place. The wake will take place in the Glen Sampson room in Louisdale, on Friday February 24th, from 6-9pm.
