Obituary – Tina McCann

Surrounded by her family, Celina “Tina” (Russell) McCann of Fredericton Junction, New Brunswick passed away peacefully at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital on Tuesday, May 17, 2022 after a brief battle with cancer at the age of 79.

Tina was born on Sept. 22, 1942, in Chatham Head, New Brunswick to Harriet (Vautour) and Joseph Russell. She was predeceased by her husband Cedric McCann, as well as her brothers Eric, Leo, Adelard, Ronald and Donald, sisters Yvonne, Muriel and Margaret, and two infant siblings.
