MacDONALD (MacCormack), Camilla Ann "Millie" – Port Hawkesbury, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, December 5, 2018, in the Strait Richmond Hospital, Evanston. Millie was born and raised in Port Hawkesbury.
Prior to her marriage, she worked for many years as a switch board operator in Port Hawkesbury. Millie and her husband Al lived in Windsor, Pictou and Cleveland and in Millie’s later years, she and Debbie lived in Port Hawkesbury. Millie loved to bake as many of her cousins can attest. She loved Cape Breton music and totally enjoyed every ceilidh she attended. She had a great sense of humor and could be depended on to come back with a witty comment or two. Millie was always ready to lend a helping hand to both family and friends.
She is survived by her daughter, Debbie; sister, Kaye; sister-in-law, Ann; brothers-in-law, Sterling and Ian. Millie is also survived by special friends, Patsy MacNeil and Steve Brown as well as Leah and Mya MacDonald, special family members who were always close to her heart.

There will be no visitation. Funeral mass will be 10 a.m. Saturday from St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church, Port Hawkesbury with Father Conrad Edwards officiating. Burial in the parish cemetery.
Since Millie was one to show compassion to those less fortunate, donations in her memory to the Port Hawkesbury Food Bank would be greatly appreciated or to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or a charity of your choice. Arrangements are under the care and direction of Dennis Haverstock Funeral Home, Port Hawkesbury. Words of comfort may be forwarded to the family at www.haverstocks.com
