It is with great sadness that the family of Joan Catherine (McInerney) Cain, wife of the Honorable Murray Francis Cain, QC, announces her passing on December 18, 2020 at St. Joseph's Hospital in Saint John, following a lengthy illness. Born August 21, 1936 in Saint John, NB, she was the daughter of the late Murray and Helen (Doucette) McInerney.
In addition to her loving husband, she leaves behind four children; Cathy McGill (Mike) of Quispamsis, Beth Stymiest (Donnie) of Bathurst, NB, Larry Cain (Helena) of Quispamsis, and Anna Cain of Toronto, ON. She also leaves behind her sister Margie Dilworth of Aurora, ON, her brother Terry McInerney (Mary) of Rothesay, and brother-in-law Bernard Cain (Ursula) of Dieppe, NB. She is survived by eight grandchildren; Matthew, Patrick and Jordan McGill, Andrew and John Stymiest, Madeline and Stone Cain, and Grace Cain Gray, and one great granddaughter Quinn McGill, as well as several nieces and nephews. She also leaves behind her lifelong friend, Noreen Stack Cavanaugh.
Joan was predeceased by her parents, her brothers; Murray, Billy, and Ray, and her infant son Michael Francis.
Joan led an active life despite the many illnesses she suffered through the years. Always elegant, she had great wit and humour. Joan loved the company of others especially if it involved playing bridge and shopping. She especially enjoyed the many winters she and Murray spent in Florida.
The family would like to thank Dr. Stephen Myers, Head Nurse Sandi, the entire dedicated staff of St. Joseph's Hospital. The care and compassion shown to the family during such unprecedented times is very much appreciated.
