We are very sorry to announce the passing of Lana Mcleod Simon, at the age of 60 years. She passed peacefully in the morning hours of Monday, April 17, 2023, in the Colchester East Hants Health Center, after a long battle with cancer. Lana was born on August 30, 1962, to the late Jim McLeod of Ontario, and the late Zena Tattrie of Westville.
She lived her early years in Truro working at many of the local bars, such as the Engine Room and Scotland Yard. She was a homemaker for many years and was a very caring and loving mother. Lana enjoyed 4x4 racing, old cars and trucks, motorcycles, music, dancing and especially spending time with her son, Robert, and her grandsons, Caleb and Logan. She loved plants and flowers and spending time outdoors. She loved to attend music festivals and concerts, and spending time with her friends. She loved old movies and TV shows, and especially enjoyed books and reading.
Lana was preceded in death by her parents, Jim McLeod and Zena (Tattrie).
She is survived by her son, Robert and his father, Rick Simon; her daughter-in-law, Tamara (MacPhee); her grandsons, Caleb and Logan Simon, as well as her many friends, especially Lynn and Luke.
We would like to thank the wonderful palliative care doctors and nurses in the Colchester East Hants Health Centre who provided Lana with exceptional care in her final weeks and days. We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
A celebration of Lana’s life will be held at the family home in Hilden on Friday, April 21, 2023, beginning at 3pm.
