Tren­ton - The fam­ily of Bon­nie Jean Matheson, nee MacDougall, are sad­dened to an­nounce her pass­ing on Novem­ber 29th, 2018 af­ter a hard­fought, two-year bat­tle with cancer. A fiercely in­de­pen­dent and strong­willed per­son, Bon­nie left this world on her own terms. Bon­nie was born on Mar. 6, 1950 to Ken­neth and Vi­o­let (Hay­den) MacDougall. She at­tended schools in Tren­ton and then went on to Aca­dia Univer­sity. She worked for 34 years at Tren­ton Works (Hawker Sid­de­ley), pri­mar­ily in the Pur­chas­ing De­part­ment. Upon its clo­sure, she ran the Tran­si­tion Cen­ter, help­ing the dis­placed work­ers find new em­ploy­ment. Fol­low­ing this, she joined the staff at Fu­ture Works from where she re­tired af­ter five years. Fam­ily and friends were ex­tremely im­por­tant to Bon­nie and she was so proud of her grand­chil­dren. She is sur­vived by her hus­band, Charles; her daugh­ter, Meryl (Mark); her step-chil­dren, An­drew and Linda; her grand­chil­dren, Char­lie, Blaire, Me­lanie, and An­drew; broth­ers, Don­ald, Ken­neth (Leta), and sis­ter-in-law, Linda. As well, she has sev­eral nieces and neph­ews, all of whom were very dear to her, and her best friend, Bea Mo­rash. Be­sides her par­ents, she was pre­de­ceased by broth­ers, Perry and Scott; sis­ters, Kenda and Kathy, both in in­fancy; step-daugh­ter, Ch­eryl; and sis­ter-in­law, Lynn. Bon­nie was very grate­ful for the won­der­ful care she re­ceived from so many health pro­fes­sion­als both in Hal­i­fax and New Glas­gow: doc­tors, nurses, tech­ni­cians, phar­ma­cists, VON, who made it pos­si­ble for her to stay in her own home, and the ladies who looked af­ter her overnight, too nu­mer­ous to men­tion in fear of miss­ing some­one, but all were deeply ap­pre­ci­ated. Pri­vate funeral ar­range­ments are un­der the care of R.H. Porter Funeral Home, Tren­ton. Do­na­tions in her mem­ory may be made to the IWK Health Cen­tre Foun­da­tion.
