It is with great sad­ness the fam­ily of Mar­ian (Smith) Mac­don­ald, 75, an­nounce her pass­ing on Oct. 30, 2018 in Vic­to­ria County Memo­rial Hos­pi­tal. Born in Syd­ney on July 31, 1943 she was the daugh­ter of the late Mary E (Ma­cleod) Smith and Arthur F. Smith. She is sur­vived by her hus­band of 55 years, Clif­ford; daugh­ters, Dar­lene (Ger­ald) Tr­ish (Mike) and Lor­raine (Joe); grand­chil­dren, Ceilidh, Bhreagh, Fraser and Ju­lian.

Mar­ian worked for both the county and the prov­ince earn­ing the Long Ser­vice Award for her 36 years of pub­lic ser­vice. Al­though she loved her job Mar­ian’s true love was her fam­ily. Her un­con­di­tional love for her hus­band, chil­dren and grand­chil­dren was the great­est gift she gave us. She was al­ways there to sup­port, en­cour­age, pro­tect and catch us if nec­es­sary. Her love meant none of us would ever feel alone and al­though we will for­ever miss her we know she is still with us. Cre­ma­tion has taken place, un­der the care and di­rec­tion of Macaskill Fu­neral Home Baddeck NS. The fu­neral was held at on Nov. 5, 2018 at Green­wood United Church. Of­fi­ci­at­ing will be Rev.
