McISAAC, Norma Frances (née BUCKLEY)
Halifax, Nova Scotia. Died on Thursday, July 18th at St. Vincent's Nursing Home in her 97th year with her family by her side. Daughter of the late Donald J. and Christina (BLEHR) BUCKLEY of Sydney, Nova Scotia, she was the last surviving member of her immediate family. Norma graduated from the Mount with a Social Work Degree in 1931 and received her Masters from U. of T. two years later. She resided at St. Vincent's since 1996 after moving from Ontario in 1994 to live with her daughter Norma and her family. Although she suffered from arthritis, she was always in good spirits and thinking of others. One of her favourite sayings was "It's not what others think of me that matters, it is how I feel about myself." She spent her married years with Ron in Montreal (twice), Halifax, Winnipeg, and finally Toronto before moving to the family cottage at Thunder Beach, Ontario. She is survived by her daughters Maryl (Barrie) STEPHENS of Calgary, Astrid WHITE/WHYTE of Penetanguishene, Ontario and Norma (Don) CUNNINGHAM of Halifax, sons John R. (Jeanne) of Penetanguishene, Donald of Palmerston, Ontario and Paul (Deborah) of Powell River, British Columbia, seventeen grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren. Norma enjoyed frequent visits from Friends and family who always gave her something to look forward to in her later years. She will also be missed by many nephews and nieces along with her dear cousin, Frank BUCKLEY of Toronto. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Ron in 1974 and their daughter Diane in 1990. A Mass of Christian Burial and cremation has already taken place at Norma's request. There will be a memorial service at St. Vincent's on Friday, July 21st at 9: 30 a.m. followed by an interment service in Ontario later this summer to rest with Ron and Diane. Donations in memory of Norma can be made to St. Vincent's Nursing Home, Halifax, Nova Scotia, the Arthritis Society of Canada or The Martyrs' Shrine, Midland, Ontario. Many thanks to those who eased Norma's suffering over the years, especially the dedicated staff at St. Vincent's who tended to her and the family in the last days. May she rest in peace with Ron and Diane in the hands of the Lord.
