Obituary of Carmie Sehl
It is with great sadness the family of Mary Carmelina “Carmie” Sehl, age 80, of Quispamsis, wife of William “Bill”, announces her passing on Monday, December 23, 2019 at Kings Way Care Centre, Quispamsis.
Born on January 15th, 1939 in New Waterford, she was the daughter of the late Allan and Flora (MacDougall) McIsaac. Besides her parents, Carmie was predeceased by her brother Mel (in infancy), brother Dan and brother-in-law, Bobby Kavanaugh.
Carmie is survived by her husband of 55 years, son David (Susan) and daughter Alana (Scott), grandchildren; Jarrett, Chad, Sarah, and Laura. Carmie leaves behind her sisters, Neila Nugent (Joseph), of Lingan, and Heather Kavanaugh of New Waterford, and brother Mel McIsaac (Linda) of Truro.
Carmie always made her family her priority. She always had to have a treat in the house for anyone who visited, and you ate it whether you wanted it or not. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy and she loved looking after them when they were young, never saying no to any opportunity, they loved it at Grammie’s. Brunswick Nurseries feeding the animals was a frequent place to visit when they were little. As they grew older, she loved hearing about Jarrett and Chad’s sports, and Sarah and Laura’s play s and adventures. She was very proud of the four of you.
Besides looking after her family, as a stay at home mom, Carmie loved to bake, garden, making furniture, painting, cleaning, you name it she did it. She never asked you to do something she wouldn’t do herself. She was active all her life until recent years. As her health declined, she never complained and always had a smile on her face.
She will always be remembered for her beautiful smile and caring heart.
The family would like to give a special thanks to the staff of Kings Way Care Centre for their excellent and kind care and support through Carmie’s journey.
In keeping with Carmie’s wishes, there will be no visiting. A Celebration of Carmie’s life will be held at Kennebecasis Community Funeral Home, 152 Pettingill Road (849-2119) on Saturday, December 28, 2019 at 11:00AM. A private family interment will take place at Ocean View Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers, remembrances in Carmie’s name may be made to Romero House, Bobby’s Hospice, or to a charity of the donor’s choice.
