Hart, Alexina "Mae" (Cameron), age 78 formerly of Beauly, St. Andrews and residing in New France, Heatherton, passed away peacefully on November 18, 2020, in St. Martha’s Regional Hospital, Antigonish.
Born in Antigonish, she was a daughter of the late Allan and Florence Cameron.
Mae was a very strong woman, and she passed that strength on to all six of her children. She was truly an exceptional mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She worked as a waitress at Gentlemen Jim’s in her younger years. As her children grew up, she took on the responsibility of providing home care for the elderly and volunteering with school lunch programs. After her children had all grown, she moved to Ottawa to live with her daughter, Margie, and did absolutely nothing and had a great time doing it. For the past 17 years she has been living with her daughter Judy (and "Roddy") and did the exact same thing. Mae was most famous for her homemade bread, rolls and stews, and for her love and hate of bingo.
She is survived by her children, Terry (Pam), South Side Harbour; Judy (Rodney), New France; Margie (Perry), Ottawa; Allan, Antigonish; Sheila (Steven), New France; and Crystal, Antigonish, and their father, Eddie; grandchildren, Holly, Cole, Scott, Ryan, Skylar, Mary, Bo, and T.J.; great-grandchildren, Alexis, Willow, Brogan, Matthew, and Cheyanna; siblings, Hughie (Myrna), Rose, Shirley (Ralph), and Lawrence (Juanita), and many nieces and nephews.
Predeceased by her brother, Kenneth, and aunts and uncles.
Cremation has taken place. Visitation will be held Friday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9pm in C.L. Curry Funeral Home, 135 College Street, Antigonish.

The funeral will be recorded and viewable on the funeral home website later in the day.
