BRACE, Beatrice 'Veronica' (née McPherson) - It is with a heavy heart that we share that Beatrice “Veronica” Brace (née McPherson), born January 11th, 1937 in Sydney, NS passed away peacefully at Scarborough General Hospital during the early morning hours of Wednesday, September 15th, 2021 at the age of 84.
Veronica made her home in Scarborough, Ontario and Sydney, Nova Scotia, and was the adoring wife of the late Willis Brace and devoted mother to Darryl Brace.
She was also the loving step-mother to David Brace (Margaret), Stephen Brace, Brian Brace (Michelle), Barry Brace (Nicole), Diane Foster (Preston), and Darlene Gulliford (Jerry) and cherished their children and families.
Veronica was the daughter of the late John Joseph and Ida “Beatrice” McPherson. She is survived by her sisters Nancy Peterson and Josie Barrow of Ontario. Veronica was predeceased by her siblings: Leo McPherson, Theresa Murphy, Zita LaPointe, John McPherson, Russell McPherson, and Agnes Whalen. Veronica was a doting aunt to her many nieces and nephews.
Veronica loved Nova Scotia and her cottage by the ocean. Cape Breton had a special place in her heart and she remained in contact with her friends and family there.
She enjoyed crocheting and knitting memorable items for her family, collecting recipes, anything to do with the royal family, and consistently winning at the casino. She was notorious for her Christmas parties and decor, sumptuous feasts, and lavishing the children with gifts.
Veronica was generous and kind with a great sense of humour and playfulness. She will be greatly missed by all.
Arrangements and livestream service details are entrusted with Paul O’Connor Funeral Home.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society in memory of Veronica Brace would be greatly appreciated.
