hearts that we announce the peaceful death of Katherine
“Kay” Bernice MacDonald of Stratford on November 9, 2017 at

Beloved wife of the late Eugene “Gene” MacDonald
and dear mother of Gene Marie MacDonald, Anne Marie MacDonald Erly
(James), Ronald John MacDonald, Claire Marie MacDonald and Peter

infant son John Alban, parents Ernest and Margaret Roche, sisters
Claire Howes (Warren deceased), Dorothy MacKenzie (Kenneth), Mary
Stearns (William deceased), Frances Lorraine Frieburger (Edward
deceased)’ Agnes Elaine Bouchard (Maurice), and brother
With a strong and unfaltering faith, Kay lived a full and
productive life. a forward-thinking woman, she was ahead of her time
by becoming a school principal at age 18 and achieving a university
degree in 1951. Kay was the epitome of generosity with her time,
advice, counsel, and support. Her friends spanned all ages throughout
her lifetime and all who knew her loved her so because they recognized
in her pure goodness and light.
Very few outside her children knew about Kay’s
alter ego “Cait” who satisfied her impish side by saying
silly things, giggling and stomping her feet in delight, as well as
eating ice cream whenever she desired. In short, Katherine
remained Katherine true to herself throughout her almost 92 years,
admired by everyone for her faith, intellect, broadmindedness, and
friendship. Our world is diminished with Katherine’s
passing, but we draw strength knowing that she has been reunited with
our beloved father Gene and our brother John.
