STELLARTON – Violet Elizabeth MacLellan (MacDonald), 97, of Valley View Villa, Stellarton, formerly of Sutherland’s River, passed away peacefully Wednesday, January 17, 2018, in the Villa.
Born in MacLennan’s Mountain, she was a daughter of the late Thomas and Ethel (Fraser) MacDonald. Violet was a member of Sutherland’s River Presbyterian Church where she was a life member of the AMS. She was known as a wonderful teacher in many schools that she taught in, the last being Thorburn Consolidated School. Mom treasured her family, especially her six grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and one great great grandchild. She loved to cook and bake for them and spread her kitchen table for them as if they hadn’t eaten for days. She was always quick to make sure they had a drive to a practice or an appointment. As a teacher she was always eager to make sure the grandchildren knew their facts and figures. She will be greatly missed by them.
Violet is survived by: daughter, Brenda (Jackie) Fraser, Eden Lake; sons, Steve, Bible Hill; Kevin (Heather Halliday), Westville; grandchildren, Michael (Tannis), Edmonton, AB; Roy (Carol) Red Deer AB; Kim (John) Webster, Stellarton; Andrew (Jill) Trenton; Zane (Natasha), Thorburn; Keagan Noade MacLellan, Little Harbour; great grandchildren, Sean, Clara, Statira, Palmer, Harper, Carly, Willow, Violet, Flynn, Dawson, Ryan, Mark; great great grand daughter Elizabeth; sisters, Elva Roy, Kings Head; Mae Cameron and Isabel Ross, both of Valley View Villa.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by husband, Palmer; daughter, Marlene MacLellan; granddaughter, Shannon Lea (Fraser) McNeil.
The family will receive visitors 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. Friday in P. & K. MacDonald Funeral Home, New Glasgow. Funeral service will be held 11 a.m. Saturday in Sutherland’s River Presbyterian Church, with Rev. Debbie Stewart officiating. Interment will be in MacLennan’s Mountain Cemetery at a later date.
Family flowers only, donations in Violet’s memory may be made to Sutherland’s River Presbyterian Church or the Canadian Cancer Society.
Special thanks to the wonderful care mom received at the Villa, where the second floor staff showed her much love and compassion and to the caregivers that enabled Violet and Palmer to be able to stay in their home for as long as they did. A special thank you to Heather Halliday who made Violet’s last days more comfortable. Lovingly submitted by her family. www.pkmacdonald.ca
