Mom passed away Friday, February 28, 2020 in the An Cala Palliative Care Unit of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital surrounded by her loving family. Born in Sydney Mines on May 3, 1934, she was the daughter of the late William and Margaret (Bonnar) Ferguson. An educator by profession, Mom attended Teachers College in Truro, graduating in 1954 and returned home, where she taught elementary school for the next 35 years. Mom often spoke of her love of teaching and her desire to make a difference in the lives of those she taught. She considered teaching to be her passion rather than her work cherishing every moment. In her retirement years, Mom loved seeing former students and never missed an opportunity to hear about their lives, and the impact she made during their time in her classroom. Mom loved hearing the familiar phrase “you were my favourite teacher”. Mom’s most cherished moments were when she was surrounded by her family and friends and she was often the centre of attention, being referred to by her sister as the “Queen”. Mom loved music and dancing and enjoyed attending local concerts. Throughout her life, Mom had a wonderful circle of friends and made it a priority to see each of them on a regular basis to share stories, laughter and good food. In keeping with her passion, Mom was a member of the Retired Teachers Association and also a member of Carman United Church. Mom is survived by her three daughters and three special sons-in-law, Lynn (Paul) MacCormick, Valerie (John) Nugent, Janice (Greg) Viva; three grandchildren, Marcel, Kaitlin and Matthew Nugent; two great-grandchildren, Ethan and Kyrin, who were her “little darlings”, and a special nephew, Joel Sweeney, of whom she was so very proud. She is also survived by her only sister, Eleanor (Fred) Patterson and her sisters-in-law, Miriam Ferguson, Martha (Mattie) Ferguson and Annette Handley. Mattie spent many nights with Mom over the years, keeping her company and tending to her needs. She is also survived by many other nieces and nephews who she loved hearing from. Besides her parents, Mom was predeceased by her husband, David ‘Doc’ Dowling; brothers, Jacob ‘Buddy’ Ferguson and William ‘Bill’ Ferguson, and a dear mother-in-law, ‘Granny’ (Catherine) Dowling. The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses of the An Cala Palliative Care Unit at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital for the exceptional care and compassion shown to our mother. Visitation will take place on Tuesday, March 3 from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. at J.M. Jobes Funeral Home, 635 Main St., Sydney Mines.
