With great sorrow, the family of Nancy and Joe Fellows announce her peaceful passing from peritoneal cancer at home in Milton, Ontario July 24, 2019 at the age of 62. With great courage and an amazingly cheerful and benevolent attitude, Nancy battled through her 18-month illness. Her family, friends and clinicians all commented on her dignity and strength during her difficult illness. “I am a woman of faith” was a common comment heard from Nancy. Nancy was born in Halifax the daughter of Geraldine (Dean) and Alfred (Al) Brown of Bedford, Nova Scotia. She graduated from Oxford School, Saint Patrick's High School and the Halifax Infirmary’s Nuclear Medicine Program. She later obtained degrees from Charles Stewart University as well as a Masters in Adult Education from Central Michigan University. Living in the Greater Toronto area since 1988, Nancy enjoyed a successful 37-year career in the Health Sciences and Education. Beginning her career as a nuclear medicine technologist she became a Program Manager for the Michener’s Institute. She completed her career as an Academic Researcher at Mohawk College in Hamilton. Retiring in 2014. In 2005, Nancy and her husband Joe relocated to Milton, Ontario. During her last five years, Nancy enjoyed volunteering at Holy Rosary Church in Milton, working casually at Sheraton College in Brampton, Ontario. She was a faithful member of the Holy Rosary Roman Catholic Church in Milton. Serving on several ministries. Nancy also held the honour of being a past president of the Catholic Women's League. In her early adult years she enjoyed traveling throughout Europe with her dearest friend Cindy. Cruises, vacations with friends in Florida and visits to historical civil war sites were some of her and her husband Joe’s favourite destinations. Nancy is survived by her husband Joseph, stepsons Patrick and Daniel; mother and father (Alfred and Geraldine Brown) of Bedford, NS; mother-in-law Marie Fellows (Ken deceased); brothers David (Jocelyn) and Gary (Peggy) all of Halifax. She is also survived by her Uncle Tom and Aunt (Betty) Guinan of Halifax, NS; Aunt AnneMarie (John) Barter of Riverview NB; nieces and nephews Laura, Colin, Evan, Aleka, Alasdair. She was predeceased by grandparents Isabella and David Guinan (Halifax, NS) Josephine and Ernest Brown (Chatham, NB) and Aunt Mary (Victor Neufeld) of Bragg Creek, Alberta. All who knew Nancy will remember her kind and gentle heart.

The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, July 29th 2019 at Holy Rosary Parish 139 Martin St. Milton at 11am. A Mass of Christian Burial will also be held at St. Ignatius Parish, in Bedford, NS on August 12th 2019 at 1:30.

I got to Nancy through the Catholic Women's League meetings shared between the two parishes of Milton. From what I knew of her, she was was a very warm and loving person. My heartfelt sympathies to the grieving husband and the rest of the family. May Nancy's soul rest in peace.

Although geography kept us from frequent visits, the few times that we were able to get together gave me insight into my amazing cousin. From my first encounter with her at the age of four it was very apparent to me that my older cousin was super cool, after all, we shared a birthday party with myself turning four, and Nancy turning eighteen.
I would have to wait nearly thirty years for our next encounter. Although this was a short visit to Toronto and we just spent a half day together, this visit really stands out to me. I was struck by how present Nancy was with Sumyu and I as she shared insights into the city, discussed family and shared a meal with us. Kinship was clear despite separation by geography and time.
I am so grateful that we were able to spend a week with Nancy and Joe last October. Despite her battle with cancer and the exhausting treatment regime, I was amazed at the energy Nancy had to be with others. She showed sincerity as she toured us around, talked with my father about his family history and listened to stories that David and I would share with her. Once again her presence with others permeated the visit. I will always remember the kindness and care she demonstrated towards her father on that visit; her selfless nature shone brightly and I will never forget that.
My heart goes out to all of you during this difficult time. A wife, stepmother, sister, daughter, niece, aunt, cousin and friend that will be dearly missed.

With love and condolences,

Mike Neufeld
