It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Flora (MacDonald) English, age 80, on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital.

Born on March 20, 1940 in Glace Bay, Flora was the daughter of the late Margaret (Warren) and Hugh MacDonald.

Flora leaves behind her daughters, Margaret (Neil) MacDonald, Janet (Roland) Stubbert, Denise and Emma; sons, Howard, Eugene and Basil (Michelle Sharpe), sister, Lucy (late Joseph) Worrell, brothers, Hughie (Rose) MacDonald, Danny (Late Elfreda) MacDonald and John MacKinnon, Dartmouth. Flora was a proud grandmother and great-grandmother, who held an extra special place in her heart for her granddaughter, Nancy MacDonald.

Flora was a kind, loving, and compassionate person. She always wore a smile and had a helping hand to offer those in need. She loved cooking and caring for her family and playing bingo. If you were fortunate enough to have known her, you were truly blessed. She was a light for many, a dear friend to all and will be sadly missed by everyone.

A Celebration of Life will be held when circumstances permit.

Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.

“God needed an angel to stand at the Saviour’s feet. His choice must be the rarest, a lily, pure and sweet. He gazed from upon his mighty throne, then stopped and picked the best. Our loving mother was the chosen one, with Jesus, our mother is now at rest”.
