With sadness, we regret to announce the passing of Mary Theresa MacDonald on Friday, December 20, 2019, at Harbourstone Enhanced Care, Sydney.
Born September 21, 1947, she was the daughter of the late John and Winnifred (Doolan) MacDonald.
Mary T always had a gift to gab and was the life of every family gathering. She loved to sing, dance, play games and make crafts. Her favorite pastimes were shopping and visiting local restaurants.
Mary is survived by her loving daughter, Amanda Bollinger, Calgary; grandchildren, who were the light of her life , Quinn Vincent and Lilly Rosemary; sister, Shirley (Jack) Lappin, Sydney; and brothers, John and Vince MacDonald, Sydney. She is also survived by her nieces, Pam and Jacqueline and nephews, Kevin and Kenny.
Although Mary had many struggles throughout the years, she faced them with strength and determination. She was greatly supported by New Dawn Guest Home for many years to maintain her independence. Her last years were filled with joy and laughter thanks to the amazing care and love from the angels at Harbourstone. Our family will be forever grateful for the care she received.
There will be no visitation. A funeral service will be held at Sydney Memorial Chapel on Saturday, December 28 at 11 a.m., with Rev. Joe MacKenzie officiating. Interment in St. Theresa’s Church Cemetery at a later date.
Memorials may be made to Irish Cove at Harbourstone Enhanced Care.
