March 29, 1924 - May 15, 2019
On May 15th, 2019, Mrs. Elizabeth MacDonald passed away peacefully with her family at her side at Kamloops Seniors Village at the age of 95 years. Elizabeth was born in Wood Islands, P.E.I., then moved to River John, Nova Scotia after her marriage to her husband Joe. From there, Joe became the minister for the Knox Presbyterian church in Ripley Ontario where they served for many years before Joe was offered the position of minister of the Erin Presbyterian church in Roseville, Michigan. They stayed in Roseville for 26 years before retiring and then eventually moving to Kamloops.
Survived by her loving sons Gordon of Kamloops BC and David (Holly) of Vancouver, and her son-in law, David Carlson (Lois Costello) of Kamloops. Elizabeth was predeceased by her husband, The Reverend Joseph R. MacDonald, her loving husband of 61 years, and her daughter Helen Elizabeth. Joseph and Elizabeth moved to Kamloops in 1994 to be closer to their family, and loved their new community. After her husband passed away in 2003, Elizabeth took up residence at Berwick on the Park where she enjoyed new friends and activities there. Last year, in failing health, she moved to Kamloops Seniors Village where she recently passed away. Heartfelt thanks to the nurses and caregivers at Kamloops Seniors Village for their kindness and caring.
There will be no service by request, and Elizabeth will be laid to rest in Ripley, Ontario where she and Joseph served that community for many years.
