Louise "Mike" Blacklock
With sadness we announce the passing of Louise (Durgan) Blacklock on November 15, 2019, at Passamaquoddy Lodge at the age of 88. Mike was born in Lubec, Maine, May 24, 1931, to her Campobello parents, George and Evelyn Durgan. She is survived by her two sons, Michael (Brenda) Best of Bocabec, NB and Tom Best of Smithers, BC, son-in-law, Lawrence Neilson and grandchildren Andrew and Amy Neilson of Vancouver, BC., step children; Linda Stone of Victoria, BC., Donna Brodeur (Maurice) of Edmonton, AB. and Douglas Blacklock (Teresa) of Woodstock, NB. She is predeceased by her husband, Cedric "Bud", daughter, Mary Neilson and sister, Teresa Durgan.
When her children were young, she had major problems with her eyesight which led her to be the recipient of some of the first laser surgery at the Boston Eye and Ear Institute. This surgery improved her eyesight and, until recent years, enabled her to lead a normal life. For several years, Mike was an active member of the CNIB and CCB
Mike really enjoyed attending social gatherings with Bud, who was a member of the Shriners and an antique car club, where they loved listening to down east music and enjoying local homemade foods.
Her family would like to thank the staff at Passamaquoddy Lodge for the wonderful care she received while a resident there. She especially loved the musical entertainment and the trivia days.
By request, there will be no visitation or service. Interment will be at the St. Andrews Catholic Cemetery. Donations may be made to the CNIB or CCB or a charity of one’s choice.
