Wed­nes­day, June 15, 2015, at 2 a.m., a beau­ti­ful an­gel went home to heaven. Kelly Anne MacQuar­rie was born on Oct. 4, 1988, to par­ents An­drea (nee Clevett) and Calum MacQuar­rie of Glace Bay.

Beloved sis­ter of Ian, she was 26 years old. Kelly faced many chal­lenges dur­ing her short life due to ill­ness. She faced these chal­lenges with dig­nity, grace and courage and was a shin­ing ex­am­ple to all who knew her. This last chal­lenge proved to be too much for her to over­come, but all through it she wor­ried and cared more about oth­ers than she did for her­self. Her love for all her fam­ily was tan­gi­ble. She was a hero to look up to for mom, dad and Ian. Never com­plain­ing but will­ing to do any­thing she had to so that she could get well. We are so priv­i­leged to have had her in our lives even for such a short time.

Dur­ing her brief time here on earth, she was a mem­ber of Sparks, Brown­ies and Girl Guides in Glace Bay. In ele­men­tary school she was on the Wild­cats bas­ket­ball team but due to ill­ness she was un­able to con­tinue to play. She then be­came a team manger help­ing out where she could. She was a faith­ful al­tar server at St. Mary’s Church for a num­ber of years and as­sisted Rev. Ver­non Reid at the al­tar in a spe­cial role cre­ated just for her. She grad­u­ated from Glace Bay High School in 2007. She worked as a stu­dent feeder at Taigh Na Mara Nurs­ing Home for three years, the Sears Store in Glace Bay and fi­nally at Glace Bay Chi­ro­prac­tic for her cousin Kyle.

Sur­vived by her mom, dad and brother Ian (Kristina) and spe­cial com­pan­ion “An­gel,” her beloved dog who was al­ways at her side, pa­ter­nal grand­mother Mary MacQuar­rie, aunts, un­cles, Mar­i­lyn and Ran­nie Whalen (Dawn, Ran­nie and Jan­ice), Jim and Joan MacQuar­rie (Keith and Jan), Ann and Earl Mor­gan (Kyle, Ar­lie Beth and Gavin), Is­abel and Gary Mac­Don­ald (Ross and Neal) and Kathy and Stu­art MacAu­lay, who were like her sec­ond par­ents (Caelin and Alex), as well as other rel­a­tives and many friends.

She was pre­de­ceased by ma­ter­nal grand­par­ents An­drew and Ella Clevett and pa­ter­nal grand­fa­ther Lin­coln MacQuar­rie, un­cle Stu­art Clevett and cousin Kim­ber­ley Whalen.

Vis­i­ta­tion will take place from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at Pat­ten Fu­neral Home on Fri­day, July 17, with a fu­neral ser­vice tak­ing place at 11 a.m. on Satur­day, July 18 at St. Mary’s Angli­can Church, Glace Bay. In­ter­ment to fol­low in St. Mary’s Ceme­tery.

Sto­ries and con­do­lences may be for­warded to the fam­ily by vis­it­ing www.pat­ten­fu­neral.com.

Do­na­tions in Kelly’s mem­ory may be made to the Cape Bre­ton Can­cer Cen­tre or pal­lia­tive care.

As we say good­bye to our beau­ti­ful girl we re­al­ize the lessons she has taught us. Never give up on life and rel­ish the love of fam­ily, as she did. Good­bye our dar­ling Kelly, un­til we meet again.
