MACKEIGAN, Rose Pa­tri­cia ‘ Tr­ish’


It is with bro­ken hearts that we an­nounce the pass­ing of our cher­ished wife, mother, grand­mother, sis­ter, aunt and friend, Tr­ish MacKeigan. Tr­ish passed away at home peace­fully on Fri­day, July 24, 2015. Born Feb. 27, 1946, Tr­ish was the daugh­ter of the late Phillip and Cather­ine La­hey of Main-aDieu.

In the 1960s, Tr­ish moved to Lon­don, Ont., with her sis­ter Edith, and cousin (and best friend), Anna La­hey. It was there that she mar­ried her hus­band, Ge­orge. They moved back to Cape Bre­ton in the 1970s and had two chil­dren, Nancy and Brad, whom she cher­ished dearly.

She worked for the Fortress of Louis­bourg As­so­ci­a­tion for sev­eral years where she was well known for her charis­matic per­son­al­ity, and bright­en­ing her co­work­ers’ days with her hu­mour and pranks.

Tr­ish was well known for her wit and great sense of hu­mour. She was a mis­chievous, fun-lov­ing per­son with a pos­i­tive per­son­al­ity. Tr­ish thought the world of her fam­ily and friends and kept those both near and far close through­out her whole life. She spent much of her time with her large fam­ily. She loved them all dearly.

Tr­ish is sur­vived by her hus­band, Ge­orge, their chil­dren, Nancy (Brian) and Brad (Amanda); her grand­chil­dren who were her pride and joy, Kae­lyn, Bren­nan, Braeden and Rhea; her sis­ters, Edith (Har­vey), Doris, June (Pius), Lucy ( John), Beatrice, Cissy (Mike) and Ruby (Bruce); broth­ers, Clem (Ge­orgina), Don­ald ( Janet), Wayne ( Jan­ice), Wal­lace (Frances) and Bomber (Dawn); her sis­ters-in-law, Barb, Dawn Jane and He­len; and many nieces and neph­ews.

Be­sides her par­ents, she was pre­de­ceased by her sis­ter Phyl­lis, broth­ers, Daniel Joseph in in­fancy, Stan­ley, Cyril, Roy and Mor­ley, broth­ers-in-law, Cyril, Lloyd and Piearce.

The fam­ily will re­ceive friends Wed­nes­day, July 29, 2015, from 13 p.m. at the S.W. Chant & Son Fu­neral Home, 564 Alexan­dra St., Syd­ney. A me­mo­rial ser­vice to fol­low at 3 p.m. in the fu­neral home chapel.
