Mary McDonald (nee Lacy)

McDonald, Mary

(nee Lacy)

October 20 1920 – November 1 2008

Mary passed away peacefully at Lady Minto Hospital with her family by her side.

Mary has been on and off our special island from 1923 until present, always to visit family and friends and be home on the old Lacy farm on Isabella Point Road.

Mary was predeceased by her parents Arthur & Hilda Lacy, her loving husband John Henry (Jack) and youngest sister Ruby Alton.

She leaves behind her sister Kathleen Rathwell, brothers Edward (Mollie) Lacy and Harold (Thelwyn) Lacy, children Hilda, Douglas (Louise), Bruce, Ralph (Maxine), Alec and grandchildren Johnathan, Jesse, Arthur and Helen.

The family would like to send special thanks to Dr. David Woodley and all the loving and gracious staff of Greenwoods, Lady Minto and extended care (God’s waiting room).

Where Mom is now I am sure that she is cooking up a storm, enough to feed the masses, with flowers for every table and all lovingly grown in yet another of her wondrous gardens!!!!

A service will be held at St. Mary’s church, 2 p.m. November 18, 2008, tea to follow.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Lady Minto Hospital.
