OBITUARY

Marie MacLeod

August 22, 1971January 19, 2020

It is with shock and a profound sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Margaret Marie MacLeod at her home in North Sydney on Sunday, January 19, 2020. Marie was born to Robert Kenneth “Ken” and Caroline (Steele) MacLeod in North Sydney on Aug. 22, 1971. Marie grew up in North Sydney and even from a young age excelled in everything she put her mind to. She graduated with top honours and went on to attend CBU, UNB and completed her business degree at Mt. St. Vincent’s. After graduating university, she worked in the Restaurant/Food Services industry, managing a number of restaurants. She also worked for several years in HR with the North Side Call Centre. In 2018 she found her dream job as a Family Service Advisor with Dignity Memorial. Marie’s professionalism combined with her kind, compassionate nature and her love of people made her an ideal fit in her new role. In her spare time Marie enjoyed crafting of all kinds (especially sewing and jewelry making), travelling and music. Marie is survived and will be dearly missed by her parents Ken & Caroline, sister Caroline, beloved partner Jamie Anderson as well as numerous aunts, uncles, particularly Patsy Foley, nieces, nephews and Vanessa & Nikola, two exchange students who were like daughters to her. She was predeceased by her grandparents John & Marie Steele and John & Margaret MacLeod, a sister in infancy and her uncle Hector. A funeral service will be held at 2pm on Monday, January 27 at TW Curry Parkview Chapel, 755 George St., Sydney. Memories and condolences may be forwarded to the family by visiting www.fillmoreandwhitman.com. In lieu of flowers, donations in Marie’s memory may be made to the Diabetic Association.

Kenny & Caroline, I'm shocked & saddened to hear of Marie's passing. Having just met her last summer, I saw a very sweet lady who you both thought the world of. I'm so very sorry for your loss. May your memories comfort you at this heartbreaking time.

I never met Marie in person but worked with her. I workwd for the company in their Massachusetts office. Marie and I were both HR managers for our centers so we had a lot of phone calls planning different activities and what not. If I had an issue I could call Marie, she was always there to help me. She was just a great person. Prayers for her family. Fly with the angels Marie.

I did not have the privilege of knowing Marie, but all the good things and the love she gave to my family will always be remembered by me.
Sharing your sadness and keeping you in my prayers.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
Love leaves a memory no one can steal.
Bärbel Fagard.

Marie was a pleasure to work with and had a great sense of humor. I can recall her calling me out of my double entendres on many occasions when I thought she wasn't within earshot, or knew she was and I would roll the dice. And then we would laugh as I would flip it on her on why she interpreted the wrong way or how she even knew what I was talking about in the first place.

I was shocked and saddened to hear of your passing and you will be missed.
