MacAdam, Mary Rose, age 94, of Antigonish and formerly of
McArras Brook passed away on July 14, 2019, in the R.K. MacDonald
Nursing Home, Antigonish.
Born in McArras Brook, she was a daughter of the late John

Mary Rose was a woman of strong faith. For 53
years, she made the pilgrimage to Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupre.

Nursing Home to be televised for the residents there and handed out
the bulletins. Mary Rose worked in laundry at St.

volunteered for many years with L’Arche and felt a part of
their community. Before moving into the R.K, Mary lived happily for
many years at the JJ Carroll House, where she had many friends.
She was always very appreciative of her family and
friends. She had a great sense of humour and enjoyed her
rides down Route 245.
She is survived by the children of Carroll and Ella McVicar
and Angus Dan and Catherine MacDonald.
