It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Mary Catherine Sears, 73, of Sackville on Thursday, December 12, 2019.  Born in Glace Bay, NS, Mary was a daughter of the late Richard and Christena (MacNeil) MacLellan. 

Mary was an active member of the Sackville United Church.

Mary was a much loved and longtime member in the Sackville Rotary, working tirelessly with various fundraisers including the Gold Mine Toonie Draw.  She worked with Re/Max Sackville Realty for thirty years as one of their top Realtors.  She enjoyed an evening of cards with friends and was avid watcher of Coronation Street.  Mary always had time for her family and friends and to participate in a worthwhile cause. 

Mary will be dearly missed by her daughter, Mary Elizabeth (Kirk) Sears Sterling, Riverview, NB; her sisters, Ann Sexton, and Chris (Carl) MacKeigan; her brother, Richard (Angela) MacLellan; her sister-in-law, Colleen MacLellan, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and very good friends.

Besides her parents, Mary was predeceased by her husband, Allan Sears; her step-son, Gwellyn; two sisters, Penny Atkinson and Peggy Baker, as well as a brother, Alexander "Sandy" MacLellan. 

Arrangements are under the care and guidance of Jones Funeral Home, 70 Bridge Street, Sackville (506-364-1300) from where a time of public visitation will be held on Monday, December 16, 2019 from 2-4 and 6-8 pm.  A funeral service will take place at the funeral home on Tuesday, December 17, 2019,  at 11 am with interment to follow in the Sackville Cemetery.  Rev. Lloyd Bruce presiding.
