MACKINNON, Mary Pauline
On the cool spring morning of Wednesday, May 10, 2017, Mary ‘Pauline’ MacKinnon, beautiful wife, mother, grandmother and sister entered into the arms of our Lord, she was born in Bridgeport April 28, 1939.
She is survived by her husband of 57 years, Joseph ‘Allie’ MacKinnon; daughter, Marilyn (Gordon) Huntington, Marion Bridge; son, Barry MacKinnon, Sydney; grandchildren, Steven and Susan Huntington, Halifax; her wonderful sister Catherine (Johnny) Facchin, Dominion; her very special niece, Joanne MacKinnon, Dartmouth, and her best furry friend “Newman”.
To her many nieces and nephews, she loved each and every one of you.
She was predeceased by her parents, Angus MacMullin and Cassie (Campbell) MacMullin, Bridgeport; her sister, Anna (MacMullin) MacKinnon, Sydney, and her two brothers, Joseph MacMullin and Rankin MacMullin, also of Bridgeport.
She was employed by Scotiabank and worked at the Sydney Shopping Center until her retirement, where she made many great and long lasting friendships.

Thank you to Anne Young, Sylvia Facchin and Zelia Burton, your unwavering support will never be forgotten.
For all who knew her and the lives she touched, either with a phone call, her welcoming home or her wonderful baked goods, we are blessed to have had her in our lives. She was by far the best Nannie, ever!
May heaven bring you peace and the rest you so deserve, we love you always and forever.
