Obituary of Janet Elizabeth Weir

WEIR (MacDonald), Janet Elizabeth - Janet Elizabeth (MacDonald) Weir, 84, Glen Haven Manor, New Glasgow, formerly of Abercrombie Road, New Glasgow, passed away Tuesday, January 27, 2009, in the Manor. Born in Greenwood, Pictou Co., she was a daughter of the late Thomas Edward “Tommy T.” and Jean Weir (MacNeil) MacDonald. She was a member of First Presbyterian Church, New Glasgow. Janet enjoyed working as a salesperson as a young adult and later as an office worker at Fred C. Morrison Ltd. She was a great homemaker, no one in her family could out do her biscuits or her fish fried “to perfection”. Her housekeeping skills were impeccable. She enjoyed knitting, cross stitching and bowling. Her accomplishments will be part of her enduring legacy. Janet lived with a degenerative brain disease for the last four years that gradually destroyed her memory but did not take away her gracious manners, nor extinguish the great love she displayed towards her daughter and son-in-law. Surviving are her daughter, Marilyn (Lionel) MacDonald, Green Hill; brother-in-law, Robert Kowalski; several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband, Andrew Keith Weir; sister, Doreen Joyce Kowalski; brother, Alex MacDonald; sister-in-law, Lee MacDonald. A private graveside service will be held in Heatherdale Memorial Gardens at a later date. Donations may be made in her memory to the Canadian Cancer Society or Pictou County S.P.C.A.
