It is with sadness that the family of Dinah Mercedes Piercey announces her passing, at the Maplewood Manor, Alberton, Prince Edward Island, on Tuesday, August 23, 2022, at the age of 80.
Born in Long Pond, Conception Bay South, Newfoundland, on May 10, 1942, she was the beloved wife, for 60 years, of Dean Piercey. Leaving to cherish fond memories are her children, Carl Piercey (Wendy), and Christine Batten (Perry), and her treasured granddaughter, Olivia Batten, as well as her special nephew, Dean Lear, and his sons, Zachary and Nathan.
Also leaving to mourn are her sisters, Edith Butler (late Clayton Butler), and Fanny Badcock (late Harold Badcock), as well as her brothers-in-law, and sister-in-law, Fred Piercey (Geraldine), Harold Piercey (Mary), Gordon Piercey (late Alma), Jean Rees (late Reuben), and Clarence Piercey (Freda). She was predeceased by her sisters, Nancy (late Reg Petten), and Hilda Lear, and her brother, Gerald Porter (late Madonna Porter). "Aunt Mercedes" will also be missed by her many nieces and nephews in Newfoundland.
Sincere and heartfelt gratitude to the staff of the Maplewood Manor, Alberton, for caring for Mom so beautifully, with kindness and good humour. It was deeply appreciated.
No funeral by personal request. Cremation has taken place. A memorial service in Newfoundland will be planned for a future date.
