Obituary of Gloria MacDonald
Gloria Jean MacDonald
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Gloria (Knox) MacDonald on Jan 8, 2023 at the Glace Bay General Hospital. Gloria was a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great grandmother and friend.
Gloria was a very kind, compassionate and caring person and always willing to lend a helping hand. Her favorite pastime was gardening. The more time she got to spend in the garden the better, she could always find another spot to plant a seed.
Gloria loved her family, the grandchildren and great grandchildren were her pride and joy, she cherished her time with them. She will be sadly missed by everyone who had the pleasure to know her.
Gloria is survived by her husband of 59 years, George MacDonald; daughters Marilyn (David) Wiseman, Kim (David) MacLeod, and Glenda (Doug) Thomas, who she loved like her daughter; grandchildren, Brittany, Chelsie, Tyler, Chantelle (Kris) and Renee; great grandchildren, Quinn, Zoey, Luke and Cameron. She is also survived by sisters, Juanita, Linda, Janet, Heather; brothers, John, Alfie (Heather), Norman (Mary), Wallace (Susan), Harold, Glenn (Rose)and brother-in-law Harold Ross; survived by sisters-in-law Mary (Terry) MacKinnon, Debbie (Ralph) Rideout; brothers-in-law Mike (Heather), Manning (Maggie), Percy (Sally) as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Besides her parents, Clifford and Annie Knox, she was predeceased by her four children whom she missed dearly, Rose Anne, George, Keith and Allan; and siblings Margaret, Jessie, William and Jimmie.
Though we are heartbroken you are no longer with us, we do find comfort knowing you are now reunited with your children, parents and siblings in heaven. Love you always and forever.
