Terry Louise MacLeod (nee Roddick)
1956 ~ 2021

 

On Wednesday, June 2, 2021, Terry Louise MacLeod (nee Roddick) passed away after her brief battle with cancer with her family by her side.

Terry grew up in Eureka, Nova Scotia, with her parents, Betty and Raymond Roddick, and her seven other siblings, Betty Ann (Robert) of West River Station, NS, Earl (Mary) of Culls Harbour, Nfld, Margie (Wayne) of New Glasgow, NS, Ellen (Jay) of Frasers Mountain, NS, June (John) of Thorburn, NS, her little brother Dougie (Susan) of Lorne, NS, and her niece who was like a little sister Bonnie (Ken) of Morinville, Alberta.

 

Terry was married to Art “Artie” MacLeod (of Saltsprings, NS) for almost 42 years. They went to school together in West Pictou, Pictou County, Nova Scotia and started dating after they moved out west to Alberta for work. Terry was a sassy, smart, determined woman, in the best way possible, which made her work for many years as a house mom at Oakhill Boys Ranch outside of Bon Accord, Alberta, perfect for her. She loved to cook, garden, woodwork, sew, dance, and grandparent.

 

Terry would like to remind everyone that this is not goodbye. Terry is now with her predeceased daughter, Crystal; her Momma and Father; her Sissy, Betty Ann; and her dog, Buddy.

 

She is leaving behind many loved ones already mentioned as well as her daughter, Jennifer (Nathan & Isla); all of her wonderful in-laws on the MacLeod side of the family; too many nieces and nephews to name; and her many, many friends in Bon Accord, Nova Scotia and Florida.

 

We would like to thank the many amazing nurses and doctors who cared for her so compassionately over the last few months.

Judith Anne Christie (nee Whittaker)
January 29, 1950-April 8, 2021

It is with deep sorrow we announce the passing of our beautiful wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, friend and cousin, Judith Anne Christie (nee Whittaker). After a long, courageous battle with cancer, Judy succumbed to the disease with Lloyd, her husband of 53 years, by her side. During her final months, she was a pillar of strength and always had a smile while enduring her pain.

 

Judy was born and raised in Bon Accord and as a young girl she excelled at sports and academics . She met and married Lloyd and soon they had two children, Jason and Kerri. Shortly thereafter, she secured a job as administrative assistant with the Sturgeon School Division at Gibbons School where she would remain a strong force for 38 years, until her retirement. Although Judy and Lloyd raised their own two children, she also mentored and guided countless other local children, who are now adults in the Gibbons area and still, to this day, share stories of ‘Mrs Christie’ and loved running into her out and about town. Judy and Lloyd enjoyed their retirement, spending winters in Florida with Jason, Kelley and their two grandsons, Jd and Jaxon, savoring all of their sports games and being their biggest fans. They also loved travelling, golfing and enjoying dinner-table visits with friends and family any chance they got. Judy’s favourite pastime was spending time with her 3 grandchildren - Hunter, Jd and Jax, beaming with pride when she saw them, sharing stories of them or creating their favourite recipes with them and cooking for them any chance she got.

 

Left to cherish her memory is her loving husband, Lloyd; her son, Jason (Kelley) of Jacksonville, Florida; her daughter, Kerri (Dennis) Rogers of Edmonton Alberta; her most prized, beloved souls, her grandchildren, Hunter (Kerri) of Edmonton and grandsons, J.D and Jaxon (Jason and Kelley) of Jacksonville Florida; her brother, Don Whittaker of Richmond BC; and sister, Lynn (Ned) Mills of Fort Saskatchewan Ab; as well, she leaves behind sisters in -laws and brothers in-laws and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and lifelong friends.

 

Judy was predeceased by her father, Bert Whittaker and mother, Kate Whittaker (nee McCrimmon).
