Martha "Theresa" Pushie


Pushie, Theresa "Big Allan", age 85, of Addington Forks passed away in St. Martha`s Regional Hospital on July 25, 2020.

Born in Antigonish, she was the daughter of the late Angus Allan and Christine (Gillis) MacDonald.

Theresa was a delivery driver for Silver Cleaners for over forty years. Rain, wind or snow could not stop her. After Gordon`s retirement, he was her constant companion on her trips around Antigonish and surrounding counties. She loved to dance, and she loved to cook. Her corned beef and cabbage was second to none. Theresa and Gordon loved their pets. Their rescue cat ‘Rascal’ will miss Theresa greatly. She had a very strong faith and was a longtime member of St. Ninian Parish.

She is survived by her husband Gordon; sisters in law: Robina Cusson, Isabel Drake and Sandra Kennedy as well as many nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by six sisters and six brothers.
