Cynthia Marlene McLean

McLean, Cynthia Marlene – Age 58, passed away peacefully on October 20, 2016, in Arborstone Enhanced Care, Halifax, with her mother and family by her side.

Cindy is survived by her mother, Glenna McLean; sister, Sharon (Paul); her loving partner, Jon; uncle, Lyall and his family; niece, Erin (Ricky); nephews, Adam (Natalie), Christopher (Anna-Marie), Sam (Jennifer), John (Belinda), who she thought of as the children she never had; great nieces and nephews, Cassie, Kaitlin, Abby, Jackson, Wyatt and Oz. She was predeceased by her father, Robert; sisters, Debbie and Vicki.

Cindy had the most amazing ability to chat endlessly and make friends wherever she was. She was owner/operator of La Maison Bleue in Glen Margaret for many years. She would often have customers who stayed for hours while she educated them on all of her crafts, from where they originated to the quality of the craftsmanship. She was directionally challenged! Getting lost was only another adventure to Cindy. God rest your soul as you embark on your final destination in heaven with your dad and sisters by your side.

Cremation has taken place under the direction of Arimathea Funeral Cooperative, Upper Musquodoboit. A graveside service will take place at 2 p.m. on Saturday in Dartmouth Memorial Gardens, 767 Main St., Dartmouth. Reception to follow at 25 Belvedere Dr., Dartmouth. Donations will be gratefully accepted to Arborstone Enhanced Care, 126 Purcells Cove Road, Halifax, NS B3P 1B5, where a bench will be installed in Cindy’s memory.

Special thanks to the amazing staff of Arborstone who cared for Cindy during her final years. We will be forever grateful to you all.
