Eugene Marcellus “Hughie” MacDonald – April 20, 2020

Quietly taken by the Lord from his angels at Colville Manor in Souris on April 20, 2020, Eugene Marcellus “Hughie” MacDonald of St. Peter’s Bay, passed in his 93rd year. Son of Marcellus and Josephine MacDonald, he is survived by Helen Patricia MacDonald, his devoted wife of 66 years, and his sister Martha Boran (Lawrence) of Boston, Mass. The loving father of Roderick (Dianne), Shirley Ann (deceased), Roy (Cynthia), and Richard (Valerie). “Poppa” to Riley, Callum, and Evan MacDonald, who will miss their walks with him to the local blueberry patch across the road. Hughie is pre-deceased by brothers Steven, Joseph Laughlin, George, and Earl, as well as sisters Mary Taylor, Helen Grayston, and Florence MacDonald. No visitation at this time. Funeral Service, Celebration of Life and Interment will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or to the St. Peter’s Bay Roman Catholic Cemetery Fund would be appreciated. The family would like to express deep, heartfelt thanks to Gordon and Janice MacLean and the whole MacLean family for their unwavering friendship and support, as well as to the staff of Colville Manor for their kind and compassionate care. Ever a devoted parishioner of St. Peter’s Catholic Church at The Bay, Hughie is undoubtedly with the Angels now. Family will be comforted by visions of Hughie on his riding lawn mower out in the front of Ol’ MacDonald’s Farm, the Family Homestead on the Cardigan Road, tending to his picturesque patches of purple thyme, much to the delight of passers-by. “God Bless”.
