McDonald, Margaret

8 Jun 1923

At Antigonish on June 8, after a long illness which she bore with patience, Margaret McDonald, daughter of Mrs. John R. Boyd.  Deceased was a kind and cheerful disposition and made many friends since she came to Antigonish and also at Kentville Sanatorium where she spent the winter months.  Although she had been ill for two years her death was a shock to her friends, as she had always kept the bright side and never complained about her sickness.  About half an hour after receiving all the rites of the Catholic church she peacefully passed away, leaving to mourn their loss her mother, Stepfather, two sisters, one brother and a number  of friends.  Her funeral which was largely attended took place on Sunday, and the remains were laid to rest at Ballantyne’s Cove beside her father (Ronald McDonald) and her infant sister.  Rev. Donald Beaton officiating at the grave.
