Obituary of Mona Eleanor Gould
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Mona Gould of Nicholsville, Kings Co., on Wednesday, July 13, 2022, in Valley Regional Hospital, Kentville. Born on November 22, 1940, she was a daughter of the late E. Doran and Dora (Joudrey) Lutz.
Mona learned early in life that it took hard work and dedication to succeed. As a young person she worked on a farm picking berries and produce. Her adventures later took her to Massachusetts where she worked as a cook on a farm. She also spent time employed at Western Kings Memorial Hospital, MT&T and later once her sons were older, Battery and Electric.
A talented woman, she enjoyed quilting and knitting sweaters, baby bonnets and clothes, some of which ended up at the IWK. She was also a founding member of the Nicholsville Rugrats Hooking Club. Mona was thought of very highly by her in-laws and family.
Mona is survived by husband, Lester “Reid”; sons, Danny (Marla), Gary (Sherry Bugbee) and Bobby (Ann); grandchildren, Stuart, Chelsea, and Zachary; sisters, Beatrice Matthews, Joyce Gates and Cheryl (Orland) Rainforth; as well as in-laws, nieces, nephews and cousins.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by sisters, Violet Lutz and Annie Harding; brothers, Arthur, Earle, Vincent and Reginald.
Arrangements have been entrusted to DeMont Family Funeral Home & Cremation Service, 419 Albert St., Windsor (902-798-8317). There will be no visitation or funeral service by request. At a later time, burial will be held in Aylesford Union Cemetery.
