Cape Breton Post - - In Memoriam -

It is with great sad­ness that we the fam­ily of Marie MacDon­ald, age 66, an­nounce her peaceful pass­ing on Wed­nes­day, May 10, 2017 in the Strait Rich­mond Hospi­tal, Evanston. She was sur­rounded by those who loved her dearly.

Born in River­side, Marie was a daugh­ter of the late R.J. and Jessie (MacMaster) MacDon­ald. She grew up on the fam­ily farm in River­side and lived most of her life there. The great­est joys of her life were her chil­dren, grand­chil­dren and her Mor­gan horses. She also took great plea­sure tak­ing care of the many chil­dren over the years and the im­mense joy that they gave her. Marie sur­rounded her­self with fam­ily and friends when­ever pos­si­ble. She could light up a room with her smile, al­ways so wel­com­ing and made ev­ery­one who knew her feel like a bet­ter per­son. Marie en­joyed the “sim­ple things” in life, the barn and the “old hill” were two of her fa­vorite spots.

Marie will be lov­ingly re­mem­bered by her son, Shawn O’Neil, Hal­i­fax; daugh­ter, Tammy O’Neil (Ricky), River­side; her grand­chil­dren, Anita and Tyler; brother, Leo (Irene), River­side; sis­ters, Mar­garet McNa­mara, Hamp­ton, NB, Ce­cilia MacDon­ald, Syd­ney, Jeanette (Guy) Arse­nault, The Points; and her many nieces and neph­ews. Marie was pre­de­ceased by her broth­ers, Ran­nie and Don­ald; broth­ers-in-law, Joseph McNa­mara and Al­lan MacDon­ald. Visi­ta­tion will be from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Sun­day, May 14, 2017 in Dennis Haver­stock Fu­neral Home, Port Hawkes­bury.

Fu­neral mass will be 10 a.m. Mon­day, May 15, 2017 from St. Mar­garet’s Ro­man Catholic Church, West Bay Road with Fa­ther Cal­lis­tus Abazie of­fi­ci­at­ing. Burial will fol­low in the parish ceme­tery.
