THORBURN – Nellie Redmond, 91, Thorburn, passed away peacefully, Saturday, December 19, 2020 in the Aberdeen Hospital, New Glasgow, surrounded by her children.
Born in Leicester, England, she was a daughter of the late Alfred and Harriet Jessie Louisa (Wells) Fuller.

In later years, Nellie spent many enjoyable hours admiring the flowers planted for her outside her window. She was a passionate letter writer and cherished the relationships she acquired with all her pen pals. Nellie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend.
Surviving are her son, Chris Redmond, Pine Tree; daughters, Barbara Redmond, Stellarton; Kim (Duane) Rutledge, Linacy; foster son, Phillip Brown (Rebecca), Kentville; granddaughters, Jordan Rutledge (Josh), Trenton; Robyn Rutledge (Brandon), Hammonds Plains; sister, Joan Wass, Red Deer, Alta.; numerous nieces and nephews.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Duncan; siblings, Jessie, Ralph, John and Mary.
A private funeral service will be held. Interment will be in Heatherdale Memorial Gardens.
Nellie’s family wishes to thank the Pictou County Victorian Order of Nurses for their care and dedication over the years. They also wish to thank the wonderful staff of the Aberdeen Hospital, Emergency, 4th floor and Intensive Care units for their compassion and care.
