Age 80, Ecum Secum. We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of the kindest, most loving, generous, beautiful mother in the world on March 10, 2020 in Harbourview Lodge, Sheet Harbour with loving family by her side. Born in Halifax January 8, 1940, she was a daughter of the late Thomas and Lillian (O'Keefe) Salter. In her younger years Mom taught school in Ecum Secum, she was an amazing seamstress and worked into the early morning hours sewing clothes for her family. She worked outside the home on many homemakers projects in several communities. Along with a few local women they created a line of unique machine knit garments under the label Seagull Fashions. Mom loved to bake and was well- known near and far for her pies and bread. She survived cancer of the larynx at age 35 and her gift of singing remained strong which she loved to share, and she will be remembered fondly by everyone who knew her for it, especially at Harbourview Lodge. Mom was a devout Anglican and had a deep faith all her life. Survived by her daughters, Denise (Dave) Burns, Sheet Harbour; Darlene (Jack), Stellarton; Lisa (Gerry) Parent, Moncton; son, Dennis (Paula), Dartmouth; son-in-law, Randy Fleet, New Chester, who was like a son to mom; grandchildren, Kelly, Amanda, Jasmine, Tyler, Trista; great-grandchildren, Hayden, Andrew, Hillary, Darrah, Lily, Layla, Helena, Aliyah, Brady, Riley, Xavia, Mayson; brothers, Murray, Gananoque, Ont.; Doug (Lorie), Middleton; sister, Jean, New Brunswick; many nieces and nephews.

My father the late Duncan S. Crowell purchased the business on August 31, 1970 from the late Parker Hamilton. Dad named it Eastern Memorial Funeral Home until a few years later when he changed the name to DS Crowell Funeral Home.
