Hester B. Trites


Hester B. Trites

We are saddened to announce that Hester B. Trites, 67, of Shediac Cape, passed away from a brief illness on Monday November 16, 2020 at the Dr. Georges Dumont UHC. Born in Moncton, she was the daughter of the late Horace and Hester (Wood) Trites.

She is survived by three sisters and one brother: Ann (Black) Cornellier of Ottawa, ON, Elizabeth Isla Trites of Sackville, Jane Trites of Ottawa, ON, and Richard Trites of Moncton; a niece, Germaine Cornellier of Ottawa, ON; a nephew, John Cornellier (Marian) of Pointe-Claire, QC and four great nieces and great nephews.

She retired after a long career as a high-level air traffic controller with Nav Canada.

She recently moved to Shediac Cape, her annual summer retreat, where she built her new home and enjoyed swimming and walking on the beach with her dogs Daisy and previously Ivy. She will be sadly missed by her many friends and acquaintances and especially her close neighbors (almost family) at the Cape.

Our thanks go to the medical staff at the Dr. Georges Dumont Hospital ICU for the great care they gave Hester in her final hours.

The family will receive condolences at Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, 396 Main Street, Shediac, on Tuesday, December 1st, from 1 pm to 2:30 pm. A private chapel service will be on Tuesday, December 1st at 2:30pm and will be live streamed on her obituary on our website at that time.

Due to the pandemic, face coverings are required for visitation and social distancing regulations are in effect. A limit of 25 persons are permitted in the funeral home at one time.

In memory of Hester, a contribution to the SPCA or CARMA would be appreciated.

Cremation and funeral arrangements are under the direction of Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, Shediac (532-3297).
