It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear mother, Mary Joan Saint.
Mom passed away on November 7th, 2023, peacefully at her home after a brave and courageous battle with cancer.
Beloved wife of late Richard Gerald Saint. Loving mother of Sharon, Joan (Henry), Nancy, Margaret (Todd). Mom was blessed with two grandchildren Cole and Carley Chapman, and two grand-dogs Bella and Lily.
Mom was in her 86th year, she was born on February 4th, 1938 in Teston, Ontario, to Muriel Gertrude Weldrick and Hugh Mills O’Brien.
Mom came to Bradford in 1956 to work for Bell Canada switchboard and she boarded at the Saint Family Home. This is where she met and married her husband. This is where they made their home for their family.
Dear sister of late Gordon O’Brien, Doreen Adams, late Bill O’Brien (late Diane O’Brien), Betty Shaw (late Charles Shaw), Kenneth O’Brien (Donna), late Margaret Ingham (Ron Ingham).
Mom leaves behind many nieces and nephew, as well as many great nieces and nephews.
There was not a day gone by where mom did not acknowledge her four children and two grandchildren.
While we are sad she is no longer with us, we are relieved to know she is finally at peace and reunited with Dad.
Mom’s wish was for a private family burial, that has already taken place.
