Obituary of Barbara L. Haughn


HAUGHN, Barbara L. – It is with great sadness that the family of Barbara Haughn, formerly of Bridgewater, Lunenburg Co., announces her peacefully passing on Sunday, October 9, 2022 at the age of 87 in Mahone Nursing Home, Mahone Bay, where she had been residing. Barbara was the daughter of the late Harris and Minnie (Tumblin) Bush. She was predeceased by her husband, Percy; daughter, Nancy Haughn; and brother, Ronald. Surviving are her daughters, Christine (Steve) Hallett of Porters Lake; Patricia Haughn, Bridgewater; grandchildren, Ashley (Nick) Bellefontaine of Porters Lake; Matthew (Terra) Hallett of Porters Lake; Kyle (Shayna) Hallett of Yellowknife, NWT; Jessie Demond of Bridgewater; great grandchildren, Sadie, Charlie, Moria, Colby and Max.

Mom lived a very independent life and was always willing to lend a hand or advise to others. She worked as a house-cleaner for most of her life and worked until she was 80 at Sweeny’s Funeral Home, cleaning their offices. Most days you could see out in her yard enjoying working on her lawn and chatting with her neighbours.

Special thanks to Mom’s special friends who supported her while she was still able to stay in her home, John Dunbar, Patty and Jimmy Himmelman, Donna and Robert Strickland, Eileen MacLean, Collette Turbide; as well as the wonderful and caring staff of Mahone Nursing Home, Mahone Bay and Dr. Ramond for the love and care they provided over the past 20 months.

A private graveside service will take place in Brookside Cemetery, West Dublin with Rev. Neil McEwen officiating. Family flowers only, donations may be made to SHAID Animal Shelter or a charity of choice. Arrangements entrusted to Sweeny’s Funeral Home, 35 York Street, Bridgewater.

The tears dry, the smiles fade, but the memories last forever"
