Obituary of Muriel C. Jackson

Muriel Christena Jackson, “Mrs. J”, age 86, of Westville passed away on Tuesday, February 25, 2020 in the Aberdeen Hospital Palliative Care Unit. Muriel was a daughter of the late George and Elizabeth (MacDonald) MacKenzie. She had moved to Westville as a young girl to attend high school, and remembered singing on the street corners with the Salvation Army. Later becoming a devoted member of St. Bees Anglican Church, Westville, she was active in many church activities, especially the Ladies Helping Hands Group. She was involved in many organizations throughout the years with a particular fondness for the Dunvegan Girls Pipe Band and the Pictou County MS Society. Muriel was a graduate of the Aberdeen Hospital School of Nursing 1954, the last class to graduate from the “Old Aberdeen”. Her early nursing years were spent at the Aberdeen Hospital, later working as the Director of Nursing at the Pictou County Home for the Aged, Valley View Villa, and Glen Haven Manor, retiring in 1996 to enjoy her favourite past times including summers at Seafoam Campground with family and friends, reading a good book and watching curling. She got a thrill out of beating anyone in a game of cards. She was an accomplished knitter and made the best blueberry pie.
