Passed on: September 3rd, 2017

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Annie McSween which occurred Sunday, September 3, 2017. Annie passed away peacefully at Harbourstone Enhanced Care after a brief illness with her family by her side.
Born in Sydney she was the eldest daughter of the late Alexander ‘Alex’ and Jennie (MacPhee) McSween. She trained at the Glace Bay General School of Nursing. She went on to obtain a Master’s Degree in Hospital Administration at Dalhousie University. As Lieutenant Commander in the Royal Canadian Navy she worked in several Canadian cities as well as supervised several hospitals in Continental Europe. After retiring from the navy, she was hired by the Victoria General Hospital to perform an efficiency study. Upon returning to Sydney she continued to nurse at the Braemore Home and St. Rita’s Hospital.
She is survived by her sister and best friend, Mary MacFarlane; nieces, Margaret Anne MacFarlane Leil and Dalyce Keeling, and her children, Alexis and Kaley, Jennie Harquail, Mara McSween, and nephews, David Harquail, Donald MacFarlane and Danny and Jeff McSween. Aunt Anne will be profoundly missed by her family to whom she provided unconditional love, unending support and guidance. She will always be remembered for her kind and gentle ways and her beautiful smile.
She is predeceased by her brother, Alexander ‘Acky’ MacSween, and sister, Rachael Harquail.
Her family would like to thank the staff of Harbourstone Enhanced Care (Mira Bay) for the excellent care and friendships they provided to her.
There will be no visitation and cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m on Thursday, September 7 at T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel, with Father Norman McPhee officiating. Burial will be at Hardwood Hill Cemetery.
