Nancy Mary Fraser (Telfer) December, 21, 1932 - August 28, 2013 Died in Halifax of breast cancer. Daughter of Harry and Gladys Telfer, sister of Bob and the late Bill Telfer. God-mother of Tracy Burk and Joanne Grindley, Mom will be incredibly missed by her son Jim (of Mtl.), daughter Wendy (Carol Dayment) and favorite cousin, Heather Grindley. Our mom grew up in Montreal and spent her adult years moving back and forth between Toronto, Montreal and finally Halifax.
Be the first to share your memories or express your condolences in the Guest Book for Nancy Mary (Telfer) Fraser.
She has been working since she was a child, first as a tap dancer, then at Sun Life, retiring from Seneca College. Life presented many challenges and struggles for mom but her humour and perseverance served her well in getting past them and to a place of peace.
Mom's summers at the cottages in Morin Heights and Washago and time spent by the ocean, left her with a life-long appreciation of nature. She loved animals and had many pets all of whom she adored and spoiled. She would have been a fabulous grandmother.
If there's a heaven, we hope they serve Manhattans and safe cigarettes.
Please consider memorial donations to the Hospice Society of Greater Halifax.
