On Friday, April 27, 2018 our beautiful mother Sadie passed away and is now with her loving husband and best friend, Arnie after nearly 30 years apart. They are together now for eternity.
She was born in New Waterford as Sarah Marie MacNeil on September 26, 1941 to her parents the late Mary Anne (MacMullin) and Hector MacNeil.
Ma enjoyed life, people and a good time, whether that was camping in Hay's River, spending time with the MacNeil clan in Iona, Thanksgiving weekend trips to Newfoundland or just driving in the big blue van with Arnie at the wheel. She also enjoyed her social times with her many friends, participating in various bowling and dart leagues throughout her athletic career and yelling "BINGO!" Never far from her was a sewing or quilting project. There's many a quilt out there made by Sadie with love.
Sadie is survived by her daughters, Arlene and Ann; son, Anthony, better known as Oie and daughter-in-law, Caroline. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Gillian (Ryan), Hillary (Josh), Ben and Tess.
