Dinah Nelson

Dec. 26, 1938- Jan. 30, 2023

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Dinah Nelson (nee Villeneuve). Dinah passed away peacefully at the St. Vincent’s Nursing Home in Halifax, Nova Scotia following a lengthy and courageous battle with Alzheimer’s. Dinah leaves behind her husband Peter, daughter Wendy Nelson and son Brent Nelson. She was the cherished grandmother of Matisse Nelson. Dear daughter of the late Joseph and Muriel Villeneuve (nee McDavid). Cherished sister of the late Joan (Bernie) MacDonald of Cornwall, Shirley (Guy) Lapensee of Ottawa, Gail (late Jean-Guy) Dugas of Cornwall and Linda (Laurier) Tranchemontagne of Cornwall. Her great smile and love of life will be also be missed by several nieces and nephews. Dinah graduated from St Lawrence Secondary School in 1956, and from St Joseph’s School of Nursing in Kingston ON. (Class 1959). She was a very caring and compassionate Registered Nurse. Dinah loved nature. She spent several winters skiing in the Laurentians. However, her favorite place was the cottage in River John NS. She would spend hours swimming great lengths in the cold waters of the Northumberland Straits, as well hours sailing their trimaran. Private services will be held by the family.
