Posted By Obits On November 8, 2018 @ 3:13 pm In Obituaries | 15 Comments


The family of Edna MacKay, of Liverpool NS, sadly announces her passing on Tuesday November 6 at the age of 96. She was a beloved sister and aunt, who will be mourned by her sisters Mona Ellis of Bedford and Maxine Stewart of Windsor Elms Village, and her four nieces Marilyn Ray (Penticton BC), Gloria Gilbert (Osborne Harbour NS), Nanci Heninger (Calgary AB), and Susan Calnen, (Elmsdale NS). She is also survived by three more generations of nieces and nephews.
Edna was born in Caledonia, Queens County, NS on March 8 1922, second daughter of Beulah (Freeman) Murray, and Henry Clark Murray. Edna was proud to be a direct descendant of Mayflower pilgrims.
During her married life, Edna enjoyed living on many military bases throughout Canada, and in Germany. She was a great traveler, and made many lasting friendships on the way.
Edna was always a great source of historical information regarding our family, and the North Queens area. She was a dedicated NASCAR fan. She always enjoyed doing crossword puzzles, and cryptoquotes in the daily paper, watching Jeopardy, reading, and doing jigsaw puzzles, among other mentally challenging pursuits.
Edna was a great lover of cats, and had many feline pets during her life. They are all sure to be waiting to greet her in heaven.
In keeping with her wishes, cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandler’s Funeral Home, Liverpool. Private interment in the Murray family plot Highland Cemetery, Caledonia, Queens County at a future date. There will be no visitation, or service. Online condolences may be made to www.chandlersfuneral.com.
Special thanks go out to cousins Gary and Janet Hartlen, neighbours Robin and the late Doug Sperry, and family friend Marie Macleod, who provided support during Edna’s declining years. We also appreciate the patient, gentle care provided by her Home-Support workers in Liverpool.
Edna spent her final years in Harbourview Haven (Lunenburg) and WhiteHills

Condolence from Marilyn McGinty (Cobb) on November 9th, 2018 9:22 am

To the family,
My aunt, Janet McGinty, was an old friend of Edna’s (for many years) & often spoke of her to me. While I did not know Edna personally, I recall that during the wartime years, she was also a friend of my mother. I do remember her parents as they ran the post office in Caledonia. Maxine, I still remember when I ran into you in Toronto – quite surprised to bump into someone from Caledonia! My sincere condolences to you all.

Condolence from Marie MacLeod on November 9th, 2018 12:13 pm

Sincere condolences to Edna’s family. I always looked forward to visiting with her. She was passionate about local history and what was initially planned to be a short visit would often turn into hours for me as she retold stories from the past. I recall one time, in particular, when she talked about being the last person out the door as the Gold Hunter’s newspaper publishing building in Caledonia was burning down in September 1941, She had even added, “It was a beautiful sunny afternoon, too.” Edna had remembered that small detail almost 50 years later ! Also,she could keep you spellbound with all that she had collected in her scrapbooks and scribblers. People got to depend on Edna filling in the gaps when it came to local history for the North Queens area even after she had moved into Liverpool years ago. Edna will be missed.

Condolence from Robert & Sally Fader on November 9th, 2018 12:52 pm

Condolence from Robert M. Murray Jr. on November 13th, 2018 9:23 pm

My condolences to all the family and friends of this wonderful woman. I am a United State’s “Cousin,” Robert Mattson Murray Jr., son of Robert Sr. and brother of William “Clark” Murray. We didn’t get to see Mona, Edna and Maxine enough, although brother Bill made it up to Nova Scotia more often than I. When I did get up to NS, Edna was always thrilled and so hospitable. Back in the 90s she always was sure to send send my young son Evan notes with news from Canada and pictures of her cat “Joey.” She will be missed.

Condolence from David Bell on November 14th, 2018 5:47 pm

Condolence from Murray Kirkpatrick on December 7th, 2018 3:44 pm

My condolences to Maxine and family. Edna was always so interested in me meeting our cousins, me being one. She was routinely connecting the dots and that was really appreciated by all of us. She will be missed. I’ve met Murray’s through her and had a small family reunion with the US Murray’s in Mill Village a number of years ago. Great memories.
