It is with much sadness we announce the passing of Christine (Mercer) Chapella at Leduc, AB. At the young age of 61.
Christine (Chris) was born & raised in Corner Brook and Stephenville NF, and then settled in
Leduc Alberta with her partner Paul, but would always be a “Newfie” girl at heart. She was predeceased by
her mother Marie (Rowsell), and Father, Gerry Mercer.
Chris worked various jobs throughout her younger life, but she was a mother first and foremost.
She treasured her 3 children, step-son Corey (Leona) Chapella, son Jayson (Tamara) Mercer-
Allen, and daughter Amy (Nicole) Rusk. She embraced every moment with them and especially
loved her role as “Nanny” to 16 grandchildren and one great-grandchild. In her own words they were her world!
She had a vivacious entertaining personality and even in her last days, made everyone around
her laugh. She made friends wherever she went and was easily loved.
She also leaves to mourn, her 3 loving sisters, Deborah (Joe) Cantwell, Joanne (Jim) Craig, and
Linda-Ray (Joe) Doyle, nieces, Leslie-Rae Tennant, Taylor Godin and nephews, Gerry Cantwell and Joshua Leamon.
