ELLEN MARIE RAMSAY
(MACDONALD)
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Marie Ramsay (nee MacDonald) on Sunday, April 12, 2020 at Joseph Brant
Hospital in Burlington at the age of 80. Lovingly remembered by her
children Ken (Launa), Greg, Jason and Kim (Rob). Nanny Marie will be greatly missed by her grandchildren Taylor (Tyler), Jordyn (Glen), Kayle (Nicole) and Danica. Survived by her friend and the father of her children, Cecil. Predeceased by her grandparents Saxon Richards, Margaret Jane Richards (Abbey) and parents Hubert MacDonald and Mary Ellen
MacDonald (Richards). Marie was fiercely proud of her connection to the family farms on Manitoulin Island and Prince Edward Island where she was raised. She worked in
maternity and delivery in the obstetrics department at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital for many years and had a reputation there for kindness and good humour.
Anyone who met Marie immediately felt comfortable in her presence and she made friends easily. Marie was admired for her positive outlook on life, especially her faith and courage in facing her extended illness. She will be sadly missed but her memory lives on in her family and friends. The family extends their collective thanks to Dr. Kathy Thompson for all the thoughtful care provided to our mother during her extended illness. As per Marie’s wishes,
cremation has taken place and when circumstances allow, a Celebration of Life will be held. In lieu of flowers,
donations to the Humane Society or your local animal
shelter is gratefully welcomed.
