It is with deepest sadness that we announce the early passing
of Sara Jean Marie Petrie on Wednesday, November 22,
Sara Jean was born on March 22nd,
1957, to Allister and Audrey MacDonald (Hussey) in Marion Bridge,
Sara lived her life in Mira. After graduating from Riverview
Rural High School in 1975, she started her career as a secretary with
Nova Scotia Department of Health, where she retired after 37 years.
Her work ethic, her wit, and her vivacious presence lit up everyone
around her. Sara Jean was humble and chose a simple life. Her dream
was to build a home on her father’s land beside the Mira.
For 18 years, she lived out her dream with her husband and best friend
at the end of Gesner Point Road. Sara Jean enjoyed hunting for beach
glass, travelling to Cuba with dear friends and cruising on the Mira.
Sara and Donnie were partners in all aspects of life. She never shied
away from an adventure. Sometimes you’d find her banding
lobsters off Gabarus, sometimes running Fuzzy’s Fries behind
the scenes. Sara never wasted a moment.
Sara Jean was predeceased by her father, Allister MacDonald,
father-in-law, Neil Petrie, and mother-in-law, Irene Petrie
She is survived by her husband, Donnie Petrie; sons, Daniel
Petrie and Brian Petrie; mother, Audrey MacDonald (Hussey); brothers,
Wayne MacDonald (Hilda) and Gordon MacDonald (Diane) and many brothers
and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and a
goddaughter, who she loved deeply.
Visitation will take place at Bethel United Church, Marion
Bridge on Sunday, November 26 from 4-8 p.m. Funeral service will be
held at Bethel United Church on Monday, November 27 at 11 a.m., with
