BURT, Ella Frances (née Tarrant) -
Peacefully at Hillsdale Estates on May 29, 2020 at the age of 91. Ella worked as a manager-supervisor at Reitmans for almost 30 years. She was a tough woman who spoke her mind, no matter who was around and always gave the right advice. Her bubbly personality will be dearly missed. She had a contagious laugh, the brightest of smiles and inspired everyone she knew, especially her 3 grandsons. Predeceased her husbands Edward Burt and Joe MacDonald. Loving mother of Paul (Linda) and Edwina Peeters (Rod). Proud grandmother of Keith, Michael and Tyler. Predeceased by her parents Clara and Patrick Tarrant. Dear sister of Cyril, Gus, Pat, Carmel Turpin, Madeline Banfield, Margaret Campbell, the late Cyril, the late Alex and the late Florina Polych. She will be fondly remembered by her nieces, nephews and many good friends. Due to the restrictions caused by the pandemic, a private service will be held, and a Celebration of Ella’s life will be held at a later date. Interment at Resurrection Catholic Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations in Ella’s memory may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society and condolences may be expressed online at

My condolences to Ella's family. My father Alan Dickson also lived on WillowWay and I often saw Ella when I was visiting Dad. Ella was good humoured and quite the personality! My thoughts and prayer are with you during this very difficult time. ~ Diane Trauzzi

When I heard our Great Aunt Ella had left us the first thing I thought of was that "eye roll" of hers! Mom and I always got a kick out of that...I will never forget her coming to Nova Scotia to be with Mom when Dad passed away. What a crackerjack she was.

Special thoughts to Paul, Edwina, her twin brother, Uncle Gus, and all her siblings today.

Dear Cousins, Paul and Edwina and families, we are thinking of you all. When I told the children yesterday of their Great Aunt Ella’s passing, the first thing they remembered was her turkey soup! She’d have that ready for us whenever we drove through and stopped for a visit. She made me promise to sing for her when she went home to the Father, so one day, when we can all gather to remember her, I will come down and do just that. Love to you all, Deb, Ed, Charlie, and Alice.
