Marcella Mary MacKinnon (Fraser)
(January13,1944 - July 3, 2021)
Mom grew up in Black Point and The Hill. In 1969 she and Dad moved to Bay St. Lawrence. In 1993 they bought a home in Coxheath and split their time between Coxheath and Bay St. Lawrence.
Mom and Dad ran a successful fishing business. She also worked at MacDonalds store and then proceeded to work at Morrisons for many years.
Mom was known as Nan and Nannie by her children and grandchildren, and Old Nannie by her great-grandchildren. Mom was always trying to feed you. Everyone had their favourites whether it was biscuits, aero bar squares, lasagna or her and Dad’s soup. Her grandchildren have fond memories of meals being made and shared with their friends.
Mom enjoyed bingo where she had good times with many great friends especially Bev and Kenny. We want to thank her nephew Warren and his wife Janet for their kindness.
Mom died peacefully at home with her family. She is survived by her husband of 61 years Allan J. MacKinnon. Together they had 5 children. Joe (Rita), Anthony (Marlene), Brenda (James) and Stefanie (Jay). She was predeceased by her first born Richard who died in infancy. Mom had 12 grandchildren Jolene (Christopher), Jeffrey (Sherry), Zacky (Grace), Allan (Kelsey), Felicia, Kaleb, Joshua, Mary, Alec, Hazel, Lauchie and Allan Jay. Old Nannie had 9 great grandchildren, Chelsea, Kyle, Brady, Walker, Brock, Alayna, Isla and Conner. She was predeceased by one great-grandchild Cruz.
