Sproule (Fillmore), Judith Grace – age 79, Central Onslow, passed away on April 29, 2020 in the Colchester East Hants Health Centre, Truro. She was the daughter of the late Elta Mildred Henderson (nee Hamilton) and Carl Fillmore. She was born and lived her entire life in Truro. Judie is survived by her son, Charles Sproule (Janet Buell), Truro; daughter, Patricia Elizabeth Sproule (Ashley Letcher), Onslow; brother, Wayne “Skip” (Mary) Fillmore, Truro; stepbrother, Frank Henderson Jr, B.C; stepsister, Margaret Dale, Truro; stepsons, Leigh ( Michelle ) Shepherd, Ontario, Brent (Victoria), Ontario.; stepdaughter, Sandra ( Mick )Shepherd, Ontario; beloved nephews, Wayne (Melanie) Fillmore, Brian (Crystal) Fillmore, Jamie (Jayme) Fillmore, and cousin, Norman Hamilton. She was predeceased by her first husband, Dale Sproule, sister-in-law, Nancy MacLellan; second husband, David Shepherd. She will be forever remembered driving her favourite Corvette while either owning Panhandler stores in both Truro and New Glasgow or managing Maritime Marlin Travel (in which she would wish to apologize to any travel clients that she inadvertently sent in the opposite destinations of their wishes! She asks their forgiveness with a wink, smile and laugh. In later years, she thoroughly enjoyed spending her winters with her “Lauderdale by the Sea” community of friends in Florida. A loving mother, sister, step grandmother, she put her family above all others things and always had a smile for those she encountered. The family wishes to thank Dr. Cortney Smith, Dr. David Henderson, Dr. Don Rowe and all the Palliative Care Unit and VON for all the loving care they gave to Mom. By Judie’s request (and social restrictions), there will be no visitation or funeral services. Cremation has taken place. A family gathering will be held at a later date. Donations in her memory may be made to the Colchester S.P.C.A. Arrangements have been entrusted to Colchester Community Funeral Home, 512 Willow St., Truro.

To Judie's Family,
I was saddened to hear of Judie's passing. She was a big part of my life as a teenager. I used to babysit Chuck and Trish, whom she loved deeply, and my first job was at the Panhandler in Truro Mall. She was a good mentor, ambitious and a hard worker. She was generous to me and treated me like a grown up! I learned from her that there was an entire world outside of small town Truro. She was open about the pitfalls of limited thinking and encouraged me to always follow my heart no matter what was said behind my back. God speed Judie.
Love Becky Scott

So very sorry to learn of Judie's passing. I first met Judie through NS Forest Products Association, when Dale and Tip were involved through their forestry connections. Please know you are in my thoughts at this most difficult time. Sincere condolences to each of you.
