October 20, 1917 – March 7, 2013
Miriam Abigail FitzGerald passed away suddenly on March 7th, 2013 in Calgary AB. She was a woman of unwavering faith. Her gentle spirit and enchanting smile warmed any room. A devoted caregiver to various family members, her legacy is her life of service. Her accepting and trusting spirit allowed her to enjoy living the last five years, in Calgary, with her cherished daughter Ann Marie. Florida, Brule Beach, Easter or Christmas jaunts, Miriam was always ready for another adventure. Her sparkling eyes would brighten for family and a decadent dessert.
Miriam was born October 20th, 1917 in New Glasgow, NS, to the late Daniel MacDonald and the late Sarah (Buckley) MacDonald. She is survived by her devoted daughter Ann Marie, nieces and nephews Mary Lou, John, Bob, Pauline, Gerry, Mary, Kathleen, cousin Maureen and numerous grand-nieces and grand-nephews. She was predeceased by her beloved husband of 53 years, Jim and niece Pauline. She was also predeceased by her older sisters Helen and Norah. They were three beautiful, generous ladies.
Also left to mourn are special friends Reverend Dan Stevenot, the Howlett and Roth families. They welcomed Miriam to her new western home with love, acceptance and friendship.
