Passed on: January 24th, 2018

It is with great sorrow that we share the loss of our dear sweet sister, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Norma, 93, of Coxheath passed away on January 24, 2018 in the Cape Breton Regional Hospital with family by her side. Born on October 8, 1924 in South Rustico, PEI, she was one of nine children in the caring family of Frank and Bernice Doucette.
Norma “Sugarplum”, was predeceased by the one true love of her life, her husband of 67 years, Rannie, and their son she missed so deeply, Ronnie. We take solace in knowing that she is now resting peacefully in their arms alongside her parents, sisters and brothers.
Norma is survived by her sons and daughters, Carol (Pat) McAlister, Michigan, Wayne (Marg) MacDonald, Coxheath, Francis (Connie) MacDonald, Halifax, Anne (Kenrod) MacIntyre, Dartmouth, Ronnie – deceased (Sandra) MacDonald, Lethbridge, Paul MacDonald, Coxheath, Eddie (Marlene – deceased) (Christina) MacDonald, Abbotsford, Mary MacDonald, Westmount and Dawn (Carlos) Torrealba, Dartmouth; her 21 grandchildren, and 9 great-grandchildren. She will be dearly missed by her brothers and sisters, Cy – deceased (Ella) Doucette, Rita (Gene) Carragher – deceased, Louise (Ted) Doucette – deceased, Alfred Doucette – deceased, Alyre (Anna – deceased) Doucette, Marie – deceased (Hal) Bradford, Edward (Marita – deceased) Doucette, Fran (Mel) MacDougall, Anne “Tootsie” (Rinso – deceased) Reginato, Evelyn – deceased (Tommy) Prue, Joan MacDonald, Rose (David) Absalan; Danny (Carmella – deceased) MacDonald and Angus R. (Lorraine) MacDonald.
Norma was a strong woman of deep faith. She was a mother to nine children but mothered countless others. She had a gentle caring way and lived a selfless life serving others. She was active in her church as a lifelong CWL member and in her community. She loved to spend time with family, friends, and most importantly, her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was devoted to everyone around her. She was an amazing cook and baker who loved to have her table full of food, family and friends … “the more the merrier” she would always say. In our large extended family, both Mom and Dad will always have a seat at our table.
Our family would like to extend a very special thank you to the wonderful team of care workers, VON and Dr. Worth, who have been both friends and caregivers to our mom over the years. Each of you will be forever in our hearts.
Visitation will take place on Sunday from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. at T.W. Curry Parkview Chapel. Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Monday at 2 p.m. at Our Lady of Fatima Church in Sydney River.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Our Lady of Fatima Parish or Coxheath Fire Department.

“Home at Last”
Last night as the moon passed by,
There was an even brighter light in the sky.
A wonderful woman was on her way,
On time for the dawn of a new day.
There, no yesterday or tomorrow,
And no heartache or sorrow.
You are my heroine, my miracle, my best friend,
Because of you, I know there is no end.
Author, Mary P. MacDonald
