Tate, Josephine Rita, age 92, Mattie Settlement. We, the family, regret to announce the death of our mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Josephine Rita Tate on April 23, 2022.

Born January 14, 1930, she was the daughter of the late Simon and Hattie (Delorey) Mattie of Mattie Settlement.  Mom grew up on the family farm in Mattie Settlement surrounded by a strong family and strengthened by her faith.  Josephine married Edward Tate and resided in Mattie Settlement for the rest of her life.

Josephine was a dedicated member of St. Peter’s Parish CWL, Tracadie. She was aways ready and able to donate baking or items to all fundraising events that took place in the St Peter’s Parish and surrounding communities.  She had a kind and gentle manner and was always ready to help when needed.

She leaves behind to mourn her death, sons, Gerard (Hazel), Mattie Settlement and Michael (Loretta), Edmonton, Alberta; grandchildren: Lawrence (Tara), Matilda (Chris), Tom; great grandchildren: Cole, Ellie, Edward, Jaxson, Sophia, and Nora; sisters: Kathleen (late Victor) Boucher; Theresa (late Joseph) Guthro, Auld’s Cove and Dora (Clarence) MacDonald, Auld’s Cove.

She was predeceased by brothers, Berkley, Walter, and Russell Mattie; sister-in-law; Louise, Ruth and Theresa Mattie.

The family wish to extend a sincere thank you to Dr. William Booth for his care over the years and to St. Ann’s Nursing Home, Arichat for their continued care while she was a resident.  Also, thank you to the caregivers who spent time with her while she lived with Gerard and Hazel.

Visitation will be Thursday, April 28th from 10:00 am until time of funeral at 11:00 am in St. Peter’s Church, Tracadie, presided by Reverend John Barry, assisted by Deacon Berkley Guthro. A livestream of the funeral mass will be available on this website.
