Anita Ann Bond
Anita Ann Bond, aged 68, passed away peacefully at the Northside Community Guest Home on July 2, 2020, after a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer.
Born in Sydney on March 25, 1952, Anita was the daughter of the late David and Celina (Blanchard) Bond.
Anita grew up on Grand Lake Road in Sydney with many of her summers spent in Belle Cote with family. She was employed as Supervisor of Food Services with the Breton Ability Centre (formerly Braemore Home) in Sydney River, from 1978 until her retirement in 2011.
Anita was a kind hearted woman who would do anything for someone in need. The love of her life was her only child, Brad, and this was expanded after the birth of her two grandchildren, Elena and Colin. Lovingly referred to as Nana, there were many card games, crafts, and too many hugs and kisses to count. She never missed a Christmas concert or special occasion until her illness in 2017.
Anita is survived by her loving son, Brad, and his wife Benita (Jackson), along with their two children, Elena and Colin. She is also survived by her cherished siblings, Charlie (Marlene), Sydney, Tom (Carrie), Millville, and Margie Campbell (Blaine), of Coxheath, all of whom supported her immensely throughout her life and especially during her last years as her health declined. She is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.
Besides her parents, Anita was predeceased by a younger sister during childhood, Mary Margaret.
The family would like to thank the staff at the Northside Community Guest Home for their extraordinary care and compassion for Anita during her residence. Also, the Cape Breton Cancer Centre and Palliative Care Team for their care and kindness during treatment and beyond.
Cremation has taken place. Visitation will be 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, in the W.J. Dooley Funeral Home, 107 Pleasant St. North Sydney, during which we encourage all visitors to follow the guidelines set by Nova Scotia Public Health, to wear masks and adhere to social distancing.
A private family service will take place at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Anita's memory to the Cape Breton Cancer Centre.
