MacDonald, Elizabeth Marie, age 76, of Antigonish, passed away at home on September 16th, 2023.

Born in Lochaber, she was the daughter of the late Henry and Johanna (Flynn) MacDonald.

Liz was the youngest of eight children in Goshen, Antigonish County. She spoke fondly of her childhood and the many animals she loved on the family farm over the years. Liz moved to Antigonish and worked in the kitchen at the R.K MacDonald Nursing Home, where she served for 35 years.

During her early years at the R.K., she met Bernie. They spent their years together enjoying time outside, especially at Big Island Beach or Beaver Mountain Park, with their dog Cal and spoiling their grandchildren. Liz always took photos of those around her but didn’t enjoy being in front of the camera. When not outside or spending time with ‘her girls’ and Bernie, Liz could be found with a cup of tea in hand, watching Hallmark Christmas movies, crafting, watching Heartland, or making her evening phone calls to the family, her special nieces, or to her dear friend Shelly.

She is survived by her son, Ian (Yvonne) MacDonald, Antigonish; grandchildren, Molly (Trevor) Stewart, Fredericton; Katie (Tyler) VanOirschot, Ashdale; brothers, John MacDonald, Antigonish; and Gordon MacDonald, Middleton; sister-in-law, Shirley MacDonald, Antigonish; and many nieces and nephews.  

Predeceased by husband Bernie; sister, Peggy Steeves; brothers: Lawrence, Harry, Leo, and Everett MacDonald; brother-in-law, Donald Steeves and sisters-in-law Patsy, Shirley, Roberta, Helen and Sandra MacDonald.

The family would like to extend special thanks to the Continuing Care staff, whom Liz always enjoyed visiting with, Constable Wallace, C.L Curry Funeral Home staff for their compassionate support, Dr. Hickey, and Meals on Wheels.

Cremation has taken place.  Visitation will be held at C.L Curry Funeral Home, 135 College Street, Antigonish, on Thursday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9pm. Funeral mass will be held Friday in St. Joseph’s Church, St. Josephs, at 11:00am. Burial in the parish cemetery.

Family flowers only, please. Donations may be made to St. Joseph's Hillside Cemetery Association.
