Patsy Anne Canney (Sheehan) May 7, 1949 – April 17, 2020

It is with profound sadness and aching hearts that the family of Patsy Anne Canney of Fredericton, NB announce her passing on April 17, 2020 at Hospice House in Fredericton.

Patsy is survived by and will forever be missed by her girls, Tina Iannarilli and Shelly O’Pray.  Her son in law David O’Pray, Step Daughter, Tina Canney and her grandchildren, whom she lovingly referred to as Nanny’s Angels; Kyle, Karly, , Anna and Sadie.  Her sister Elaine Ross (Nelson) and brothers Robert Sheehan and Carman McKeen (Brenda).  Nieces and nephews Teal, Kali, Jake, Quinton, Hannah and Michael.  She was predeceased by her parents Norma Sheehan (McCoy) and Kenneth Sheehan.

Patsy will be remembered as a no-nonsense woman with a heart of gold and a fighting spirit that saw her through many hardships including a final battle against cancer. She fought hard and we are so proud of the strength and courage she showed these last few months. She was a loving Mother, Grandmother, Sister and friend and she will live on in the hearts of many. 

The family would like to give a special thank you to Hospice House for the wonderful care they provided to Mom and the empathy they showed to our family during this very difficult time.  A thank you as well to Dr. Bock and to the lovely ladies of Bayshore; Debbie, Donna, and Kim who provided many hours of companionship and care for Mom over the last few years.

Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Bishop’s Funeral Home and a celebration of life will occur at a later date. In lieu of flowers the family ask that you please donate to Hospice House in Fredericton. The online sharing of memories & condolences may be made at
