It is with great sadness that the family of Elmore Marie Blossom (Ringer) Kenney of Kentville, formerly of Lunenburg, announces her passing on Sunday, March 3, 2019 at home, after a lengthy illness. She was 85.

Born in Mahone Bay on May 19, 1933, she was the daughter of the late William and Laura (Hamm) Ringer.

Elmore was extremely talented, taking many courses to perfect her skills. She was an excellent seamstress, as well as a painter with oil, watercolour, and charcoals. She also enjoyed working with ceramics, creating a collection of Santas from around the world. Paper tole was another of her passions. She had given many treasures to family over the years which provide us with a lasting memory.

Elmore is survived by her daughter, Deborah (Barry) Lewis, New Minas; son, Michael (Isabel Gallant), Kentville; granddaughter, Tara Lewis (Robert MacLeod), Rothesay NB; grandsons, Tyler Lewis (Katlyn Atwell), New Minas; Kristan Kenney (Melissa Price), Kingston; step-granddaughter, Janice (Ricky Hoare) Quinn, New Glasgow; great-grandchildren, Joshua (her special, little "Dr. Kenney"), Kieran, and Kaia; step-great grand-children, Rian, Meleena, Hailey, and Aurora; sisters-in law, Ann Ringer, Lunenburg, and Roselia Sheaves, Dartmouth; several nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her husband, Weldon; half-brother, Harold Johnston; brother, Robert Ringer; sister, Bessie Whynot; grandson, Ryan Kenney; great-granddaughter, Adrianna Kenney; step-great grandson, Alex Hoare.

Cremation has taken place. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of the Dana L. Sweeny Funeral Home, Lunenburg. A graveside committal service will be held, at a later date at Park Cemetery, Mahone Bay.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, the Canadian Diabetes Society, the Heart and Stoke Foundation or to the Lung Association of Nova Scotia.

A heartfelt thank you to Dr. Matthew Targett, Kentville for his care of Elmore over the years.

,Joan and I are saddened by thought that we won ,t see Elmore again ; she will be greatly missed and loved. When she would come and visit us in Lunenburg , we loved her humour ,her voice , her laughther , and that sort of teasing thing she would do to try and make people squirm ( all in good fun ) but most of all I loved that she always called me Kenny B. To me her calling me Kenny B not only distinguished me from her nephew Ken Whynot while we we together but meant that I was excepted as part of the family , which I ll be forever. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Michael , Debbie , Josh and family ; hopefully you feel as we do that Elmore is with Wellie ; and is up their stirrings things up .

So sad to hear of Elmore's passing. I had the privilege of working with her back in the late 1970s at Canada Permanent in Lunenburg and we had a lot of fun kibitzing with each other in the office. She had a heart of gold but also a penchant for being a straight shooter and telling it like it is. It was nice to be able to touch base with her in recent years on Facebook and it was obvious she never lost her sense of humour. She definitely will be missed. Sending our prayers to her family at this sad time.
