Retter Elizabeth Howell

October 29, 1963 — September 6, 2023


With Heavy Hearts and profound sadness, we the family announce the sudden passing of Retter Howell. She was born in Sydney Mines, October 29th 1963 to the late Lois (Leblanc) & Nicholas Howell.

Retter is survived by her common law husband Kevin Bonnar, daughter Elisha (Addison) Aucoin, sisters; Sheila Howell (Alex), Lois (Jesse) MacLennan, Wanda Lee (Chris) Fraser, brothers; Nicholas Howell (Patsy), Leander Howell, Lyndon Howell (Debbie), Cory Howell.  She will also be missed by many nieces, nephews, in-laws, and mother-in-law Lillian (late Raymond) Bonnar, as well as two grandchildren Bentley and Karley Aucoin.

When Retter wasn’t working at Dutchbrook Guest Home, which she thoroughly enjoyed, she spent her free time with her grandchildren which were the light of her life. She would never be seen without a puzzle book in hand or a good ol’ Hallmark Christmas movie on TV.

As per her wishes no service will be held. Cremation has taken place under the guidance of Forest Haven.
Donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
