Hudson – Dorothy Violet MacCulloch: It is with great sadness that we, the family, announce Mom’s passing at Hospice House, Merrimack, New Hampshire, Friday, April 19, 2013 in her 101st year, with her family by her side.
Born in New Glasgow, N.S., “Nana Mac” was the daughter of the late John A. and Rena (Stewart) MacMillan. She taught school in Meiklefield and Blue Mountain before her marriage. The family moved from Blue Mountain to New Glasgow and then to Massachusetts 50 years ago.
She is survived by her sons, William (Anne), New Glasgow; David (Kathy), Londonderry, New Hampshire; Bradley, Hudson; and Kendall, Boston, Massachusetts. She is also survived by seven grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews and cousins.
Mom was very involved in her church community in Hudson, including a turn in the handbell choir and Bible study groups. She worked for Digital Equipment Corporation until just before her 80th birthday. Her favorite pastimes included knitting and working in her flower garden, which was an outstanding display at her home, first in Gleasondale and later in Hudson. She also enjoyed doing the daily crossword puzzles.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband C. Edgar, son Glenn, and sister Christine Maynard.
There will be a visitation to celebrate Mom’s life Monday, April 22, from 5 to 8 p.m., at the Tighe-Hamilton Funeral Home, 50 Central St., Hudson, and at the Angus Funeral Home, New Glasgow, Nova Scotia Wednesday, April 24, from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. The funeral service will be held Thursday, April 25, at 11 a.m., at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, New Glasgow, with interment following at Heatherdale Memorial Gardens.
