Eva Marie (Mercier) MacDougall
Eva Marie (Mercier) MacDougall passed away
peacefully of natural causes in Blomidon Court – Shannex Nursing home
in Greenwich, NS, on Saturday, December 5, 2020, aged 85 years old.
Eva was born in Belledune, Gloucester County, NB, on July 5, 1935, to
the late Frank (Francois) Mercier and Agathe White (Leblanc). She grew
up during the Great Depression and World War II, a challenging and
traumatic time of her life that left indelible memories of which she
often spoke with mixed feelings.
Eva was part of a large tight-knit family that
highly valued education and self-improvement which produced many high
school and university graduates over the generations. In keeping with
that, Eva started in a one-room rural schoolhouse and became an
honours graduate of Nash Creek High School, Class of 1955—a
rarity for the time and place and her gender. She began her
professional career in banking, first in Bathurst, NB, later moving to
Montreal, QC, and then Toronto, ON, where she met and married Joseph
L. MacDougall (now deceased). Eva had five children and subsequently
assumed the formidable role of house-keeper while simultaneously
juggling outside employment, finally retiring from retail sales in
1985 in Greenwood, NS.
Eva was a
beautiful vibrant woman, always careful of her appearance, with a wry
and lively sense of humour; she loved a good practical joke and
especially a strong coffee. She was a great storyteller of her
childhood experiences and, despite her ofttimes difficult life, always
maintained an indomitable spirit that could not be broken. A good
cook, but an even better baker, her pride was her house and kids and
she looked after both with great care and
Eva Marie
Mercier MacDougall is survived by her children, Peggy (Montreal, QC),
John (Bathurst, NB), Barry (Edmonton, AB), David Glenn (Richmond,
Virginia, USA), and Dianne (Greenwood, NS). Eva also has several
grandchildren including, Melissa (Ottawa, ON), Elizabeth Jane
(Calgary, AB), Robert (Calgary, AB), and William (Richmond,
Eva’s wishes were to be cremated, and
longer-term plans are for her interment with her people in northern
New Brunswick, final arrangements which are currently hampered by
COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.
The family
profoundly thanks the staff of Blomidon Court – Shannex nursing home
in Greenwich, NS, for the excellent care Eva received, and the genuine
affection and kindness consistently shown by the nursing staff over
the years—especially in her final days and hours. Her
passing was calm, peaceful, and dignified solely because of the kind
and loving people at Blomidon Court.
In lieu of
flowers it is respectfully requested that donations be made in her
name to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada (a charity for which
she canvassed door-to-door for many years) or the Lung Association of
Nova Scotia. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted
to the White Family Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Kentville.
