MacDONALD, Katherine Constance (née MacLEOD)
92, Halifax, passed away on September 17, 2007, in Saint Vincent's Nursing Home. Born in Taiwan in 1915, she was a daughter of Rev. Duncan and Constance (EASON) MacLEOD. She is survived by sons, Ian (Jane,) Fredericton, New Brunswick; Edward (Jane HENSON), Halifax; daughters, Sharon, Halifax; Carol (Russell) HAZELDEN, West Dover; son-in-law, Bill PLASKETT, Halifax. Also surviving are grandchildren, Andy (Circe) and Jennifer MacDONALD, Joel (Rebecca KRAATZ) and Anna PLASKETT, Andrew and Russell HAZELDEN, and Katie MacDONALD; numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband, Robert Murray MacDONALD; sister, Ruth; brothers, Donald, Ian and Bonar MacLEOD. She came to Canada (Manitoba) at the age of 11 and later attended high school and university in Toronto, graduating with a B.A. from Victoria College, University of Toronto in 1937. She entered nursing and graduated as a Registered Nurse in 1941 from Toronto General Hospital where she met her husband, Bob, when he was a visiting medical officer serving in the Royal Canadian Navy during the Second World War. Settling in wartime Halifax, she quickly involved herself in church and community life. Because of her unique background, she had a special connection with members of the Chinese community. For 25 years she served as the honorary president and advisor of the Dalhousie Chinese Students' Society, which originated in her home. She had been a member of the Chinese Society of Nova Scotia since its inception in the 1970s. She served in leadership and executive positions in many organizations over the years. At St. Matthew's United Church, she was a founding member of the Ross Auxiliary, United Church Women, ran a children's mission band, started up the Sunday nursery, served on a committee to support a Vietnamese family, and volunteered at the St. Andrew's Church Sunday suppers. She also served for a time on the selection committee of Pine Hill Divinity College, interviewing candidates for the ministry. In the late 1940s and early 1950s she was very active with the Young Women's Christian Association as a board member and chair of the world service committee and gave occasional radio talks. She was a founding member of Women for Music, the Dalhousie-Kings Reading Club and the Halifax Canadian Federation of University Women. She served in Home and School Associations at the elementary, junior and senior high levels, and was often asked to give slide talks to classrooms on international topics. Over the years, Katherine canvassed for a number of charities, drove for 10 years for Meals on Wheels, kept up her contacts with Toronto General Hospital alumnae, and was a member of the Clan MacLeod Society. She met weekly for decades with a group of close Friends (the 'bag-lunch ladies'). She took an active interest in her husband's professional life at the university and together they hosted faculty and students, and participated in the International Students' Association. In the early days of the Indo-Canadian Society, she was invited to join the organization as an executive member. She took a refresher course and returned to nursing for a time in the 1970s. Whenever she and Bob traveled internationally, they visited former colleagues and students and Katherine maintained those Friendships worldwide. Katherine lived a rich life of service and will be missed by family and Friends. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 22, at 10: 30 a.m. in St. Matthew's United Church, 1479 Barrington Street, Rev. Ross Bartlett officiating. A family burial will be held at a later date in Hardwood Hills Cemetery, Sydney. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Katherine and Robert MacDonald Scholarship, c/o The School of Nursing, Dalhousie University or any charity of choice. Heartfelt thanks to the staff of Saint Vincent's, the QEII, the Bedford Berkeley and Doctor Marilynne Bell. E-mail condolences may be sent to:

It is with heavy hearts that Joan's daughters, Kimberley (Andrew BUNTAIN, Oakville) and Lara (Bradley MORRIS, Markham); announce the death of their mother following a brave and lengthy battle with cancer on September 17th, 2007. Mom was predeceased by Dad, William Beverley HAZEN, in 2004, also after a quietly courageous struggle with cancer. Mom is survived and will be remembered by her two granddaughters, Hannah and Erica, her brothers: Ian, Ken and Barry and their families in the Maritimes, as well as a wide circle of loving family and Friends.

To show our appreciation to family and Friends for their never-ending support to our family over the past five years, Kim and Lara will be hosting a reception in Oakville in their parents' honour.
