McLaughlin, Delores June age 82 of Gold River, passed away peacefully at Shoreham Village Nursing Home on September 29, 2018, surrounded by her family.
Born in Gold River on June 29, 1936 she was the daughter of Rennie Swinimer (Rafuse) and Larry Swinimer of Gold River. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Russel McLaughlin; Ferne Rafuse, mother Rennie Swinimer and father Larry Swinimer and son-in-law Elwood Bradbury.

She was a devoted sister and survived by Freddie (Carolyn) Swinimer, and Opal Demont, as well as many special nieces and nephews and dear friends who had a special place in her heart.
Mom’s love, devotion and caring for all creatures, feathered, fury, big and small were always dear to her heart and she could always be seen feeding and caring for them regardless of the weather and elements they were exposed to.
Cremation has taken place under the care and direction of the Kaulbach Family Funeral Home, Bridgetown. A graveside service will be held at a later date. Donations in memory may be sent to the Alzheimer’s Society of Nova Scotia or to SHAD or the SPCA.
We would like to thank all the staff at Shoreham Village who have a special place in both Mom’s and our hearts. Their kindness and caring will always be remembered and remain with us forever. On line condolences may be sent to www.kaulbachfamilyfuneralhome.com
