MacPhail, Mabel Eleanor – Age 96 of Meteghan River, formerly of Fredericton, N.B. and Summerside, P.E.I., passed away at home on Friday, June 25, 2021. Born in Dashwood, Ontario, she was a daughter of the late Frederick and Henrietta (Emberley) Jackson.
She was a person of great faith, loved gardening, knitting, greatly enjoyed travelling, picking berries and preserving nature’s harvest. She was an avid reader, loved words and had a very broad vocabulary. She could recite poetry from memory for hours. She was also a great diplomat; a peacemaker always seeking to work through even the most difficult situations to avoid upsetting anyone. She loved being a “GG” – a great grandmother.
Mabel is survived by her daughters, Vivian MacPhail and Monica Gillis, both of Meteghan River; son, Vaughn MacPhail, Calgary; sisters, Mildred Jackson, Paris, Ontario; Gladys Hudema, Winnipeg; Laura Kreager, Cambridge, Ontario; Leila Anderson, Paris, Ontario; Carol Spurgeon, Brantford, Ontario; granddaughter, Tanis Potter, England; great grandsons, Vaughn Andrew, Bridgewater; Sebastian Potter, England.
She was predeceased by her husband, J. Allison; grandson, Vaughn Alexander; son-in-law Carl Gillis, sisters, Irene Jackson, Edith Meridew and Florence Penner.
