It is with sadness that we, the family, announce the passing of Jean MacNeil, 62, of New Waterford at home on July 17, 2020.
Born in New Waterford, she was a daughter of the late Joseph and Marjorie (Hinchey) MacNamara.

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Archie MacNeil and twin sister, Joan Edwards.

McGillivray Funeral Home Chapel, 380 Smith Street, New Waterford, at 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 25, 2020 with Father Ray Huntley officiating. Donations in her memory may be made to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Online expressions of sympathy may be sent to the family at: www.vjmcgillivray.ca.
