Whitney Pier

With deep sadness and heavy hearts, the family of Jeanette Patricia MacIsaac regret to inform that she peacefully passed away at her home in Whitney Pier on Sunday, December 10, 2023, at the age of 76, after a prolonged illness.

Born in Sydney on March 23, 1947, Jeanette was the daughter of the late Rudy and Margaret Nordine.

Jeannette will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 55 years, Donnie; daughter, Tara (Glenn) Colbert; grandchildren, Ryan Colbert, Jesse Colbert, Michael Colbert, Lauren MacIsaac, Julia MacIsaac and Erin MacIsaac, whom Jeanette adored; siblings, Sharon (Michael) Furdas, Heather (Richard) Leonard, Valerie (Raymond) Dawe, Albert (Diane) Nordine, and Daria (Barry) McNeil; brothers-in-law, Greg (Jenny) MacIsaac, Johnny (Janet) MacIsaac, Raymond MacIsaac; sister-in-law, Faye (Alec) Hanna; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and aunts.

Besides her parents, Jeanette was predeceased by her beloved son, Jody MacIsaac.

Jeanette will always be remembered for her fun-loving nature and love for tarbish at their summer home in Mira. She had a special talent for celebrating her victories in a lighthearted way. Her ability to create memorable sing-a-longs around the campfire, particularly to ABBA songs. Additionally, she graciously hosted Christmas Eve gatherings, welcoming both extended family and friends.

Jeanette had a knack for finding great deals at Value Village and Giant Tiger, always ensuring she made the most of her shopping trips. Her sleepovers with her best friend/sisters were filled with laughter, song, and dance long into the night. She cherished family vacations and cherished moments spent driving in the car with Donnie and their beloved pet, Daisy.

Mom, you are the nucleus of our family, the core of our hearts, and the source of our strength. We will always hold you in our hearts and cherish the memories we have shared with you.

The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to Dr. Archibald for his kindness, support, and care of Jeanette during her time of need.

Visitation and memorial service to celebrate the life of Jeanette MacIsaac will be held at Pier Community Funeral Home, 1092 Victoria Rd. (entrance on Church St.), Whitney Pier on Thursday, December 14, 2023. A gathering of family and friends will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with the memorial service to follow at 1 p.m. in the All Faith Chapel with Fr. Paul Murphy officiating. Interment will take place in Resurrection Cemetery, Sydney Forks.

Donations in memory of Jeanette may be made to a charity of one’s choice.

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