Obituary of Emery McLellan
McLELLAN - Emery Ivan, age 87, of Scotch Village, passed away suddenly at home on March 20, 2017, joining his wife, Margaret Joan (Macumber), in eternity. Born in Bramber on July 14, 1929, he was a son of the late Henry and Albertha "Bertie" (Brown) McLellan. Emery was a soft-spoken, hard-working man, who was always there to lend a hand to his neighbors and friends. He loved spending time at the beach and in the woods. A much-loved father and grandfather, Emery was very well-regarded in the community and will be dearly missed. Emery is survived by his children, Joan (Frank) Anthony, Windsor; Neil (Donna), Windsor; and James (Donna), Alberta; grandchildren, Mitchell McLellan, Sarah Allen, Ryan Anthony, Jesse Giles, and James Giles; great-grandchildren, Jaelyn and Jayce Allen; sister, Eva Chambers, Brooklyn; and many nieces and nephews. Besides his parents and his wife, Margaret, Emery was predeceased by his sister, Ellen Chambers; and brother, Lewis. Cremation has taken place with no visitation by request; a private interment at Avonview Cemetery will be held at a later date. Donations in memory of Emery may be made to CNIB, 6136 Almon St., Halifax, NS B3K 1T8. Arrangements have been entrusted to the compassionate care of the J. Wilson Allen Funeral Home, Hwy 215, Summerville; 1-902-633-2431. Please visit our website at www.allenfh.ca to sign the guest book or send private condolences.
