Kathleen Bannister


Kathleen Bannister

  From the banks of her beloved Pollett River at the Jordan LifeCare Centre, The Glades, NB to the "Far Side Banks of Jordan", Kathleen Bannister, 96, formerly of Elgin, NB passed away on Saturday, November 27, 2021.

  Born on May 12, 1925, on Gowland Mountain, NB, she was the daughter of the late Nathan and Minnie (Marshall) Harrison.

  Married for almost 64 years to the late Hilyard Bannister (2013), Kathleen was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. A homemaker, we remember Mom's delicious meals, especially the chocolate cakes made weekly for dad!

  Kathleen was a faithful member of Elgin Baptist Church, a life member of the WMS, and a former member of the Elgin Women's Institute.

  Kathleen is survived and missed by her daughter Myrna (Kenneth) Martin of Petitcodiac and her son Stephen (Debbie) Bannister of Elgin; grandchildren Kenda Martin, Nicholas (Melissa) Martin, Jarrette (Sarah Jane) Bannister, Justin (Lisa) Bannister, Christy (Scott) Hoyt, Kelly Terris, and Shauna Terris; great-granddaughters, Charlotte, Olivia, and Bridgette; sisters-in-law Marion Harrison and Helen (late Robert) Chandler; a special cousin, Alma Steeves, as well as many cousins, nieces, and nephews. The last surviving member of her family, Kathleen was predeceased by brothers Alfred (Margaret), and Edwin (Edna); sisters Ella (Russell) Nowlan, Mildred (Cecil) Colpitts, Amy (Austin) Colpitts, and Myra (Clarence) Shaffer; step-father George Babcock, and infant half-sister Edith.

  Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a private family service will be held. Arrangements are in the care of Salisbury Funeral Home (372-4800). Interment at the Elgin Cemetery.

  Special thanks to Dr. Rick Morton and the staff of the Jordan LifeCare Centre for the wonderful care given to Mother over the years.

  If desired, donations to the Elgin Baptist Church or Jordan LifeCare Centre would be appreciated by the family.
