She leaves be­hind her hus­band of more than 50 years, John (Jackie) MacDon­ald; their three chil­dren, Kevin (Mar­guerite), Kirk (Shauna) and Kim (Kyle), and brother Brian Tren­holm. Nancy was the lov­ing grand­mother to four grand­chil­dren, Shea, Sarah and Kather­ine (Kevin), and Joshua (Kim).

Nancy was born and raised in Amherst, and came to Bad­deck dur­ing a sum­mer work term while at­tend­ing Dal­housie Univer­sity, where she met the love of her life, Jackie, and they were mar­ried in 1966.

She was ac­tive in the com­mu­nity through her work with Cen­ter Bras d’Or and then later with Home Care Nova Sco­tia. Dur­ing her life she en­riched the com­mu­nity through vol­un­teer­ing with the Fire Ladies Aux­il­liary, Bad­deck Mi­nor Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion, Bras d’Or Yacht Club, Bad­deck Curl­ing Club and as part of the church choir.

Nancy was an avid curler, but also en­joyed swim­ming and sail­ing. She also en­joyed watch­ing nu­mer­ous other sports and could al­ways be counted on to root for the un­der­dog.

Nancy was an af­firmed animal lover as any of her fam­ily or friends can at­test to. She loved to spend time walk­ing, feed­ing and play­ing with her dogs and horses over the years.

She will be greatly missed by her fam­ily and friends for her kind­ness and com­pas­sion.
