Obituary for Vertilee Flora Purdy

Purdy, Vertilee Flora- 84, of Yarmouth, passed away on October 24th, 2022 at the Yarmouth Regional Hospital. Born October 3rd, 1938, she was the daughter of the late Ethel May Purdy and Bernard Locke Purdy. Vertilee loved her family more than life itself and anyone who had the privilege of knowing her, will always remember her as a kind and loving woman. She worked at the Vanguard for over 20 years before retiring. She always looked forward to spending her Saturday mornings with her granddaughter, Stacey and when she wasn't home enjoying a cup of tea, you could usually find her out shopping with her two sisters Honey and Gail at all of the local stores. She is survived by her long time companion of 60 years, Billy Roach; loving son, Leigh Purdy; granddaughter, Stacey Purdy; sisters, Phyllis (Frank) Single; Ethel (Honey) Macomber, and Gail Doucette; many nieces and nephews. Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her brothers, Mildon Purdy, Stanley Purdy and Lesley Purdy; as well as her daughter-in-law, Rose Purdy. Cremation has taken place under the care of Sweeny's Funeral Home and Crematorium. In accordance with Vertilee's wishes, there will be no service. A donation, in Vertilee's name, may be made to the Evangel Assembly in Yarmouth or a charity of your choice.
