BEDFORD, MARIE ELISE - 1905 - 2013 - Marie E. Bedford, of the Salvation Army Lakeview Manor Nursing Home in Riverview passed away at her residence on Thursday, March 14, 2013 in her 108th year. Born in Leger Corner, NB on October 10, 1905 she was the daughter of the late Henry and Barbie (Cormier) Leger. Marie was a former member of Holy Family and St. Bernard's Roman Catholic Churches and a member of the St. Bernard's Catholic Women's League. Marie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Marie was a very special lady and will be remembered for her kind and giving ways. Her secret to living such a long life was by being good and enjoying her small portion of sparkling wine every evening. In recognition of her long life she received certificates and letters of congratulations from many organizations including Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, The Govenor General of Canada, The NB Government, and The Town of Riverview.

She was the last surviving member of her immediate family. She is survived by her only son George and his wife Carolyn Bedford of Pictou, NS; grandchildren Robert Bedford of Perth Australia and Kathleen English of Pictou, NS; great grandson Nicholas English of Pictou, NS.
