Celeste, Teresa and Karen are heartbroken to announce the passing of their Mother, age 85 of Greenwich, formerly of Kentville.

Mom was predeceased by her husband, Joseph MacDonald; brothers, Earl, Ralph and Robie; sister, Florence.


We would like to thank the staff at Blomidon Court for all their love, care and support they gave to Mom. They treated her like their family while she was in their care. We could not have asked for any better. Also, we’d like to thank Elisabeth Macmillan for all her weekly visits and the flowers she brought Mom from her own garden, Mom really enjoyed that.
