Sadie worked as a Homecare provider for several years as well as looked after the bookkeeping for the carpentry business operated by her husband Arnold.

Sadie’s family was large in number and she enjoyed being called upon from time to time for her wise counsel, whenever any of them were experiencing difficulties in their lives.

Sadie was predeceased by her husband Arnold; sisters, Joyce Urquhart, Audrey Tobin, her brother Douglas MacLennan; sister-in-law, Dorothy MacLennan, brothers-in-law Dave Urquhart, Tommy Tobin, Sandy “Dimp” Hare, Roy Campbell and Calvin Vokey.
