Obituary of Elizabeth B. MacDougall

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Elizabeth “Bubsie” MacDougall of Shiretown Nursing Home, Pictou, formerly of Plymouth. She left us peacefully on July 29, 2020 in her 97th year. Elizabeth was born in MacPhersons Mills on May 31, 1923 to John Dan (JD) Cameron and Katie Cameron (Cameron). Elizabeth met and married the love of her life, Clarence and they spent the next 66 years together until his passing in 2007. She was also predeceased by her brothers, Harris, Alex, Sister Catherine, son-in-law Kenny Smith, and Brother Harold (Virginia) Cameron. Elizabeth was a loving and devoted mother to her sons, Barry (Linda) MacDougall, Wayne (Sharon) MacDougall, and daughters Lynn Smith, Ferne (Allan) Forsyth, and Shelly (Sheldon) MacLennan. She was also a proud grandmother to 11 grandchildren and 16 great grands. Elizabeth lived a full life as a wonderful mother, homemaker and support to her husband as he and the boys ran the family business, C & W MacDougall’s Bulldozing. She was a member of the First Presbyterian Church, Stellarton where she was active in church activities. She was also a member of the Women’s Missionary Society and the Women’s Institute. She loved to bake, kept an immaculate home, and enjoyed spending time in her vegetable and flower gardens. In her younger years, Elizabeth would be found outdoors and enjoyed biking, cross-country skiing, swimming, and walking. She looked forward to her weekends at the cottage in Eden Lake, camping in the motor home, and her time at the shore. Well into her late 90’s she still looked forward to her days at the beach and pool. In the cooler months, she would spend time knitting and especially enjoyed preparing Afghans for her great grandbabies. A true fun spirit at heart, she loved to entertain, dance, sing, and listen to music. She took full advantage of all the activities at Shiretown and was known to be seated in the front row singing, whistling, and enjoying the entertainment. Above all, she cherished her family and has left us all with beautiful memories that will never be forgotten. A heart felt thank you to the staff of Shiretown Nursing Home. Your kindness, care, and compassion were truly appreciated. She loved each and every one of you. Arrangements are under the direction of H W. Angus Funeral Home, New Glasgow. A private family service will be held at MacPhersons Mills Cemetery on Monday, August 3rd, at 2 pm. Donations in Elizabeth’s memory may be made to the First Presbyterian Church Stellarton, MacPhersons Mills Cemetery or charity of choice. ”Though her smile is gone forever, and her hand we cannot touch, we still have so many memories of the one we loved so much. Her memory is now our keepsake, which with we’ll never part. God has her in his keeping and we have her in our hearts. Sadly missed, never to be forgotten, and always to be cherished”. www.angusfuneralhomes.com
