Carmeline M. Avery


Carmeline M. Avery

Carmeline (Legace) Avery passed away at the Charlotte County Hospital in St. Stephen, NB on Sunday, August 11, 2019, at the age of 77. She was the daughter of the late Rena and Thomas Legace of Milltown, NB, and wife of the late Bev Avery.

Carm was a lifelong resident of St. Stephen. She joined the work force at a young age at the Bank of Montreal, and later moved to the Administrative office at the Canada Border Services Agency where she retired. 

Quiet and reserved by nature, Carm was a very kindhearted individual. She was always thinking of others. She enjoyed reading and listening to music. In her younger years, Carm enjoyed bowling and she was a member of the St. Croix Cloggers. She enjoyed hiking with Bev, and time spent in their travel trailer at their favourite campground near Saint Andrews. 

Carmeline is survived by her sister Sandra (Legace) Jardine, her brother Jeff Legace (wife Janice), her niece Trudi Jardine, her nephew Jarret Meadows (wife Melissa), all of Fredericton, and her niece Katie (Legace) Goreham (husband Trevor and their daughter Felicity) of Halifax. In addition to her parents and husband, Carm was predeceased by her sister and brother-in-law JoAnne and Barry Meadows, and her brother-in-law Paul Jardine. 

The family would like to thank Dr. Lister for his many years of care, as well as the nursing staff of the first floor and Palliative Care unit at the Charlotte County Hospital, and the staff at McLay’s Oak Bay Haven. Special thanks to Carm’s cousins Paul Donahue and Bonnie Beck for being such faithful visitors. She appreciated and enjoyed you both so much.

Arrangements have been entrusted to The S. O. Mehan & Son Funeral Home Ltd., 23 Main Street, St. Stephen, NB. There will be no visitation or funeral service. A private burial will take place at a later date. Condolences may be sent to the family online at
