EdnaMCDONALDMrs Edna McDonald passed away peacefully on Monday, February 22 at the Laurels Nursing Home in Bacup, aged 90. Born in Islington, North London, she endured the WW2 Blitz of London, and was evacuated to Reading with her cousin Rosie, before returning to London until the end of the war. Soon after she met her beloved late-husband, Mac, and got married in 1953. Mac and Edna celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary in 2018, and received a card from the Queen. The post war years saw Edna working as a Pitman-trained typist in several solicitors’ offices, before the family moved to Basildon in Essex in 1959 due to Mac’s company relocating. Both Mac and Edna worked in the tobacco industry for Carreras Rothmans until their retirement in 1984. Edna’s main focus was her family, Mac, and her two boys Stuart and Duncan, and enjoyed gardening and reading. Family holidays were always taken with Mac and her boys in North Devon, with Croyde Bay being their favourite place. Moving to Helmshore in 2017 due to ill health, Edna and Mac enjoyed time with Stuart’s family and visited many Northern attractions, in particular enjoying the Blackpool Tower Ballroom where they reminisced about dancing the quickstep at the Youth Club where they met. Edna’s funeral was due to take place at Accrington Crematorium on Thursday, March 4 at 10.20am. Family flowers only, with donations to the Alzheimer’s Society c/o funeral director Anthony Johnson Funeral Services, Bacup.
