Obituary of Sally Sue Hale
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Sally Sue Hale (MacDougall),
84, of Pictou, Nova Scotia. Sally left us in the early hours of April 20, 2021, at the home of her daughter, Susan.
Sally was many things to many people; wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother,
friend and a healer in the true sense of these words. As a young lady, Sally started her
nursing career at the Aberdeen Hospital in New Glasgow and went on to care for people
in the Moncton hospital, working in the OR in Labrador City and finally running the
Emergency Department in Evanston, Cape Breton. After retiring from
nursing, Sally moved back to her roots in Pictou County. She then studied alternative
healing with Psychosynthesis and Healing Touch. Sally become a well known
Healing Touch Practitioner helping people for many more years. She touched the hearts
and souls of everyone who crossed her path.
Some people would call Sally an adventurer; her close friends may call her a partner in
crime. She had a wonderful sense of humour and was always making people laugh. She
was up for anything, exploring beaches with friends, spur of the moment road trips or
grand adventures to other parts of the world.
Sally had a special connecting with Mother Earth and all of its inhabitants and
could often be found in her back yard enjoying the company of the wildlife
residing all around her. Sally's spirit was like no other, full of a warm and inviting
light that welcomed everyone. Those who knew her know how special she really
was and will now have an emptiness that only she could fill.
Sally is survived by her daughter Susan (Paul) Landry, Hammonds Plains; son-in law,
Doug Beaton, Port Hawkesbury; grandchildren, Jennifer (Randy) Shepherd, Cleveland;
Katie Beaton, Port Hawkesbury; Tracey (Lee) DeWolfe, Lower Sackville; Josh (Jessie)
Landry, Calgary along with her great granddaughters Abigail and McKenna. She is also
survived by her siblings Wayne MacDougall, Pictou; Betty Weyman, Ottawa; Rob (Liz)
Murray, Dartmouth, and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her father, William R MacDougall; mother, Zena (Harker) Murray (Lester); husband, Robert Hale; daughter, Wendy Beaton; and sister, Lynn Fradette.
In honor of Sally's life, a small private funeral ritual will be conducted at Re-Earth Lodge when Covid restrictions allow.
