She made many life-long friends in rural Temiskaming. She also taught in New Liskeard Public School where she is fondly remembered by many. It was from this latter teaching position that she retired and went to Australia and New Zealand. She taught in New Zealand for four years before returning to her home in Moore’s Cove (Haileybury). Later she purchased a home at Pike Lake and was happy there with her pets, writing and keeping a close watch on nature at her door. A time of visitation took place followed by a service of remembrance at Perrin Funeral Chapel on January 18 with Reverend Janice Hamalainen of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, New Liskeard, officiating. Bible readings at the service had been selected by Mrs. MacDougall many years ago, which reflected her assurance that all would be well in the end and that she was happy to be with her Lord. Memorial donations can be made to St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Box 908 New Liskeard, and will be gratefully acknowledged. Spring interment will be at the New Liskeard Pioneer Cemetery.
