MACLEOD, Joan Ann
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our Mother Joan Ann MacLeod on Saturday, July 11, 2015, at An Cala palliative care, Cape Breton Regional Hospital.
She was the daughter of the late Moe and Alice Saccary. Reunited with the love of her life, Laughlin ‘Lockie’.
Ma enjoyed sewing, knitting, making her famous quilts and baking. When one came to visit there was always a baked treat to take with you. She enjoyed spending time with her best friends Dollena and Peggy. She was once employed at Seaview Manor Home for Special Care.
Survived by her children, Leo (Wendy), Gerard (Kelli), Ann Marie (Bill Murchison) with whom she resided and Margaret (Kyle); sisters, Dollena (Kevin Mackie), Annette and Mary Catherine; brothers, Cecil (Rita), Michael, Stanley and Kevin (Lorraine).
