Breton Regional Hospital.
Mom was born in Glace Bay, February 22, 1933 to the late Walter and Eleanor
(Toomey) MacKenzie formerly of the Table Head area. She was a loving wife to her late
husband, Robert MacDonald, and a loving mother to her children; a loving grandmother
She is survived by her children, Norine (Barry Nygard), Gail MacDonald, Kathy (Bill
Gosse), John and Jim (Kim); as well as 11 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.
She is also survived by her sisters, Ginger, Dolly and Diana as well as numerous nieces
and nephews. Beside her parents and some siblings, she was predeceased by her son
Robert Bruce (Robbie) in 1985 and her husband Robert in 1995.
Mom was an active Jehovah’s Witness for over 55 years and loved sharing her faith
with all to whom she spoke.
We would like to thank the nursing staff at An Cala for their wonderful care while Mom
