Agnes “Sis” MacDonald, R.N. Glace Bay / New Victoria Agnes “Sis” MacDonald (December 14th, 1919 – December 23rd, 2019) rejoins her loved ones after 100 full and happy years. She was residing at Seaview Manor, Glace Bay. Agnes was the daughter of the late Angus and Ester (Mackie) MacDonald. She was sister to Angus, Phonse, Tom, John, John Hugh “Buddie”, Mary “Mamie”, Margaret and Florence, who have all gone before her. Agnes was born and lived on Daley Road, New Victoria and spoke fondly of it as home all her life. Her life’s vocation was nursing and she spent much of her career in Boston until retiring to Cape Breton to be with family. She adored being an aunt and later great aunt, at which she was unparalleled. She loved spending her summers in East Bay with the Gillis family and will be dearly missed by Frank, Irene, Caelin (Garett), Bhreagh (Spencer), Cale and Rowan. Agnes leaves behind many nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews and extended family who brought much joy to her life. Agnes lived her life with a gentle and loving spirit, always seeing the best in people. She laughed often and never complained. At this time, we would like to thank Seaview Manor and Staff for all the love and care shown to Agnes during her time with them. Thank you to Bob and Betty Ann for their weekly visits which meant so much. A special thank you to her wonderful friend, Lenore, whose company she treasured. Cremation has taken place.
