Agnes Rita Macdonald

It is with heavy hearts that we the family announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and sister Agnes Rita MacDonald at the age of 78. Agnes passed away at home surrounded by her loved ones after a long courageous battle with cancer on Monday, September 17, 2018.

Born in New Waterford on July 21,1940, she was the daughter of the late Martin and Helen (Donovan) MacPherson.

Agnes is survived by sons; Martin, Paul (Joanne), and Tony (Cindy); daughter Cynthia; brother Lorne; sisters Florence (Jimmy), Lorraine, Delores, Beverly (Brian), Beatrice (Richard), Linda (Jerry), Sharon (Bernie), as well as special care giver friend and sister Susie (Tommy); brother-in law Johnny ; Agnes is held lovingly in the hearts of 9 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren, many nieces, nephews and wonderful friends.

In the earlier years Agnes worked in Toronto and PEI at a Fish & lobster facility. Her true joy came from being a homemaker and surrounding herself with her loving family. In the later years she loved playing cards, bingo, dancing, trying her luck at the casino and making those around her smile and laugh. Her light will surely be missed.

In addition to her parents, Agnes was predeceased by her sister Jessie, brother Martin as well as two brothers and a sister in infancy.

Cremation has taken place.
A Chapel service will be held on Monday Sept. 24th at 11:00am in the McLellan Funeral Home Chapel 3183 Plummer Ave, New Waterford, 902-862-7500,

We Still see your face before us,
Your Voice we long to hear,
We miss and love you dearly,
Tears fall freely from our eyes,
Like a river filled with grief,
Our only comfort now,
Is that from pain you’ve found relief.
