BIRD, Jessie (née FLETT) (1912-2004)
Nancy and Susan announce with regret the death of their mother in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia on Thursday December 30, 2004. "Art is long, life is short' Dad wrote on the chimney of one of the houses they built, and music education was the driving force of their life together. Certainly, Jessie's support for Laughton's enthusiasm was absolute.
She will be remembered for her love of politics, of reading (Tom Harpur, Robertson Davies, E.B. White, always with copious notes in the margins!), her support for art and artists in Annapolis, being a founding member of the arts council; and for her love of family: her parents Annie and William FLETT, her sister Edna, her brothers Jim and George, and of course her beloved grand_son Marc.
Friends who wish to do so may contribute to an arts scholarship to be established in memory of Jessie and Laughton, bobunger@hotmail.com. Jessie's family plans a celebration at home in Port Royal in their honour during the summer of 2005. She died at peace in her sleep and she lived with grace.
