Joan "Bunty" Albert


Joan "Bunty" Albert
Joan “Bunty” Ellie Albert (McCabe), 70, died peacefully on the 20th of February 2019 in Charlottetown, with her two children at her side.
Bunty was born on the 20th of April 1948 in Edmundston, New Brunswick to Rupert and Doris “Dodie” McCabe. After graduating as Valedictorian of Cormier High School, Bunty studied across Canada earning her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees through Mount Allison and Simon Fraser Universities, and the University of Ottawa, respectively. Bunty moved to Prince Edward Island in 1975, raising her two children and completing a fulfilling career at Veterans Affairs Canada.
Bunty was a strong and independent woman. She was deeply engaged in the Unitarian community. In her spare time, she loved to travel, and play with her grandchildren. She was an active member of the Island community, involved in everything from the PEI Photo Club, to the O Beautiful Gaia Singers. Bunty was often involved behind the scenes in multiple community projects, among which included producing several plays with A Community Theatre (ACT).
Bunty and her family wanted to thank all friends, family and health care professionals who assisted with her illness over the past two years. A special thanks to the incredible women who helped in her final weeks; you demonstrated great kindness and dedication during this difficult time.
Bunty is survived by her children, Danielle Albert (Adam Braha) and Michael Albert (Amy), and her six grandchildren, Charlotte, Callum and Nathaniel Braha, and Annabelle, Henry and Simon Albert. She is also survived by her partner, Frank Gaudet, his children, Mary, Caitlin and Christina, and his grandchildren, Will, Luke and Ellie.
A celebration of life will be held on Prince Edward Island in July. Information on location and timing to follow.
