My dear Clan Donald family,
It is with a heavy heart that I inform you of the passing of our
beloved Tillie MacDonald of Brewster, Massachusetts. Tillie was
called Home early this morning (Friday, 1 August 2003) from an
inoperable brain tumor that manifested itself less than two months
ago. Treatments did not reduce nor help destroy this tumor.
Tillie and her husband Rod (Roderick) have been staunch supporters
and active workers in Clan Donald for many, many years. Tillie's
smiling face and ever helpful hands will be sorely missed at any
Highland gathering and the New England games.
Tillie leaves her husband of many years, Rod; two children...a son,
the Reverend Roderick MacDonald of Burlington, MA and daughter Jean
of Pittsburg, PA.
For those who can, a viewing will be held Tuesday evening from 6 to
8 pm in Orleans, MA; interment on Wednesday will be limited to her
immediate family; a memorial service will be held Saturday at 11 am
at her church in Brewster, MA.
An attractive selection of live plants was sent her approximately
two weeks ago in the name of all New England Clan Donald members.
It has been recommended that no other flowers be sent, however
donations to the Clan Donald Land Trust Foundation, in her name
would certainly be a fitting and lasting tribute.
Cards and notes of condolence should be sent to Mr. Roderick
MacDonald, 14 Shady Lane, Brewster, MA 02631.
If you need exact locations please contact me at
firstname.lastname@example.org or contact
Ken Macdonald in Waban, MA.
With sincere best wishes to all,
Clan Donald - New England
