NIXON, Annie McPhail "Nan" (née McLEAN)
Nan NIXON passed away peacefully at Errinrung Residence in Thornbury on Monday May 26, 2008 at the age of 93. Born in Greenock, Scotland, she was the daughter of John and Lilius (née DELGARNO) McLEAN. At the age of 15 Nan immigrated to Canada with her parents and siblings. Although Nan received a limited education and faced many challenges in her earlier life, as was so often the case in those years, she was able to fulfill her most important dreams, those of raising her family and being a kind and loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She is remembered by her family and Friends as a wise woman whose patience and forgiveness set examples for all to follow. She loved her home and ensured that it was always a welcoming environment for all and her homemaking skills were passed as a legacy to her children. Her home was always clean, the treadle sewing machine rarely resting as she made and re-made clothing for her family and the results of her knitting and quilting were cherished by all who received her homemade gifts. Above all Nan loved to play with the grandchildren sharing their laughter while enjoying checkers, dominoes, snakes and ladders and many card games. She encouraged her family to strive to succeed by endeavoring to do their best at whatever task might be in front of them. She shared her spirit with the gentle 'toughness' that was her inspiring strength of character. Nan was predeceased by her husband Robert Henry NIXON in 1956 when she was a woman of 41 years of age and she remained undaunted in her dedication that her family should know the warmth and security of home. She is remembered as a loving mother by her daughters Dorothy FROST of Thornbury, Isobel LEVACQUE of Collingwood and Debra Nixon McLEOD of Nottawa and she was predeceased by her son Bill NIXON. She is lovingly remembered as a dear mother-in-law by her daughter-in-law Betty (SANGSTER) Nixon VANDERLINDEN of Clayhurst, British Columbia, and by her son-in-law Roger McLEOD of Nottawa. She will also be remembered by her brother Jim McLEAN of Parksville, British Columbia and by sisters-in-law May McLEAN and Joy McLEAN, both of Meaford. Nan was also predeceased by sons-in-law Bill FROST, Ray LEVACQUE and Dale VANDERLINDEN and by brothers and sisters John McLEAN (Isabelle,) Jean SMITH (Harvey,) May MARTIN (Ray), David McLEAN, Tom McLEAN (Ethel), and Bill McLEAN. Nan will be most affectionately remembered as the devoted matriarch of her family including her seven grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren and her many nieces and nephews and their families. As Nan desired, a family service of committal and interment of her cremated remains, officiated by Reverend Dr. Brian GOODINGS of Grace United Church, was conducted at Thornbury-Clarksburg Union Cemetery on Friday May 30 where Nan's ashes were interred with her late husband. If so desired, and in memory of Nan, memorial donations to Thameswood Lodge, a residence for cancer patients in London, Ontario, would be appreciated and may be made through the Ferguson Funeral Home, The Valley Chapel, in Thornbury to whom arrangements have been entrusted.
