A profound love story reached its final chapter with the passing of Constance Edith Macdonald (nee Denton). She recently joined her husband of 58 years, Ed Macdonald, who passed away just a year ago.
Connie was born and grew up in Manly Beach, Australia, and like a true Aussie set out to explore the world as a young adult. Through her travels in Europe and Canada, fate conspired to connect her with Ed, and that connection endured more than 60 years.
Connie and Ed raised three daughters across many different locations. Toronto, to Iowa City, to St. John NB, to Niagara Falls, to Canberra, Australia, and finally settling in North Vancouver where their girls spent most of their school years.
Upon their retirement they spent several happy years on the golf course first in Courtenay, and later in Kamloops, where they moved in 2008.
Connie is survived by her sister, Judy Ellison of Sydney, Australia, as well her three daughters and their families: Sue (Bob) Bradley of Port Moody, BC, Judy (Alan) Macdonald of Red Deer, AB, and Karen Nelson of Calgary, AB, as well as grandchildren Ryan, Nicole, Brooklynn, David, and Tanner. Connie was predeceased by her brother, Paul Denton of Australia.
By any measure, Connie’s life was one well-lived, and her and Ed’s love and affection for each other is an inspiration to all those it touched.
There will be no formal ceremony by request. In lieu of flowers, donations in Connie’s memory may be made to the Kamloops Hospice Association, 72 Whiteshield Crescent S, Kamloops, BC, V2E 2S9.
