On Sunday, March 15 heaven welcomed another angel. Our mom Marie MacDonald formerly of Creemore and Stayner, joined our other angels who have gone before her, our father Ralph MacDonald (still a friend and always remembered), Donna MacDonald (sister in law), Les Davison (brother in law).
Mom was a very determined, strong lady who fought hard with countless physical struggles in the past eight years. Instead of complaining she worried about her family. There are no words to express how much we loved and respected her. We were so fortunate to have such a great mom who always remained selfless and loving. Mom was the glue and strength of our families. We wish to thank the staff of Sunset Manor, Collingwood for all of their kindness and support. To all of mom’s family and friends a big Thank You, from the bottom of our hearts for making mom laugh.
We will think of her every day and miss her deeply. She will be missed by John Bennett (partner), her six children, Debbie, Dianne (Ken), Ronnie (Merle), Lori (Dennis), Larry (Astrid), Sherry (Joe) and families, which includes 13 grandchildren, 27 great grandchildren with number 28 on his way in July, and two great great grandchildren. Pat Davison (sister in law), Dean MacDonald (brother in law) and many nieces and nephews who will always hold her dear to their hearts. As to mom’s wishes she was cremated and a Celebration of Life will follow at a later date.
