Phee, Louise Catherine "Weezy", age 79, of Antigonish passed away on September 1, 2021, at St. Martha’s Regional Hospital, Antigonish, NS.

Born October 18, 1941, in Sydney, NS she was the daughter of the late William Thomas and Mary (MacPhee) Downes.  She was raised by her foster family, the late Alexander and Ida Mae (Reddick) Ash of Monastery, NS.

Married to John Francis Phee on June 20, 1964, together they raised 9 children.

Louise approached everything she did with hard work and dedication. One of her greatest joys was spending time with her family and friends. She enjoyed knitting, cooking, and was well known to make the best homemade biscuits and bread.

Louise was an avid fan of wrestling and enjoyed fishing, bingo, playing cards and sharing stories over a hot cup of tea.
