MacDonald, Emma Juanita (Nita)

November 4th, 1930 –

September 14th, 2013

The family wishes to announce the passing of Emma Juanita (Nita) MacDonald, on September 14, 2013 into the loving care of her Lord Jesus Christ.

Nita passed away peacefully at Kelowna General Hospital with the family by her side. She is survived by her husband Erwin, son Brent (wife Roberta), daughters Heather Parlane (husband Robert) and Kim Bueckert (husband Jake), her eleven grandchildren, five great grandchildren, sister Esther and brothers Ernie, Martin and Wayne.

Nita’s life took her from her birthplace of Nanton, Alberta, through the Langley area as a young girl to a nursing career in Quesnel B.C. where she met and married the love of her life, Erwin MacDonald. The young couple made Williams Lake their home where they raised their children, and later moved to Kelowna in 1991.

Nita will be remembered for her boundless energy and hospitality, loving ways and her kind, gentle spirit.

A very special thanks to the staff at the Village At Mill Creek, Brandt’s Creek Mews and the Chatsworth Retirement Home for the kindness and special care afforded her, these last few years.

The family wishes to thank the hospital staff on the 4th floor of Kelowna General Hospital, for the respectful, dignified and professional care which was provided to Nita in her final days.

A graveside service will be held at Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery on September 21st, at 11:00 a.m.
