Kathleen MacBurnie Obituary

It is with heavy hearts we regret to announce the passing of Kathleen Marie MacBurnie

(nee MacIsaac) on September 19, 2022 in Charlottetown PEI. Kathleen was born

February 9, 1951 in Glace Bay, NS and moved to New Glasgow, NS during her junior

high years. She graduated from the Halifax Infirmary School of Nursing in 1971 where

she met lifelong friends. Her career as a nurse was very rewarding beginning at the

Halifax Infirmary, head nurse emergency room at the IWK Children’s hospital. In 1988

she was asked to participate in the coordination and setup of The Cobequid Emergency

Center where she completed her career in 2001.

Kathleen’s love of life was a joy to all of us. She approached every day with hard work

and humor and was there to support others with her wise advice. Her love of music and

dancing with Jeff around the house was witnessed by all. She loved family gatherings,

golfing at Stanhope and bowling with the women’s senior league in PEI.

She was extremely proud of all her children and the adults they have become as they

move forward in their life. She raised her family in Timberlea, NS but found time to

volunteer with her community helping at the B.L.T. Elementary School Library, Citizens

on Patrol, Eucharistic Minister, an active member of Sacred Heart, St Marguerite

Bourgeoys and St Vincent DePaul Society. She spent most of her summers in PEI and

in 2017 retired with Jeff to West Covehead PEI where she enjoyed their retirement life

with lots of travel and walks with her dog, Lucy. Kathleen was the most positive person

as she dealt with her 5 year battle with cancer. Her concern was always for her

husband, children and family as she moved through this journey.

Kathleen is survived by the love of her life husband Jeff, who together created a loving

family and children: Ian, New Westminster, BC; John, Prince George, BC; James

(Candace), Halifax, NS; Stephen (Jessica), Moncton, NB; Robyn (Matt) and Christopher

(Chelsey) Halifax, NS. Grandchildren Brody, Lance and Ella-Rose, Moncton. Her

siblings Linda (Bob) Thomson, Calgary, AB; Carol MacIsaac & (Dan) Stiner; Daniel
