Obituary for Doris Mary MacNaughton

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Doris Mary MacNaughton (nee Walker), 81, announce her peaceful passing on Thursday, October 24th, 2019 at the Meadows Home for Special Care. She was dearly loved by pre-deceased husband Sidney MacNaughton, her children Mim (Al), Dan (Vicki), Chris (Sue), Lisa (Pierre) and family Bonnie (Tom), Eva (Sid), Annie, Charlie (Frances), Phillip (Joyce) and Jimmy. Doris treasured her grandchildren, Tryna (Mark), Kevin (Shelley), Nicole (Ryan), Jennifer (Jamie), Keal, Keira, Andrew, Jamie, Natalie (Brad) and Curtis; and great grandchildren Rachel, Lauren, Alexander, Aiden, Aynsley, Islay, Claire, Liam and Asher.

Doris was born in Bridgetown, NS to the late Newell Walker and Harriett (Bordon) Walker. After marrying her husband at the age of 19, they enjoyed raising their children across many communities throughout the Maritimes and Ottawa while following her husband’s RCMP career. Settling in Hebron in 1980, she entrenched herself in giving back to the community to serve those in need by devoting countless volunteer years to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Canadian National Institute for the Blind, Meals on Wheels, and the Yarmouth SPCA fundraising for the care of animals, to name a few. She was the recipient of several volunteer awards over these many years, and was most proud of having received the RCMP’s Second Man Award for her support roles in rural RCMP Detachments in the 1960’s.

Doris immensely enjoyed her many friends through master’s bridge, line dancing, golf, bowling groups, travel, Saturday morning yard sales and summers at the beach. Doris was a kind, warm and vibrant woman with infectious humour and beauty. Doris lived her life to the fullest in every hour of every day. Whether preparing for Christmas gatherings or planting daisies in her beautiful flower gardens, she was a solid rock and best friend to each of her children, teaching them to take the world be the tail for all it can offer and to be strong through all life’s trials and tribulations.

A special thank you to the staff of the Meadows Home for Special Care for the abundant compassion and care provided to Doris and her family during the past 4 years. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Sweeny’s Funeral Home and Crematorium, Yarmouth. Following her cremation, the family would like to invite her friends to join them in a Celebration of Life being held on Tuesday, October 29th at 1 pm at the Hebron Baptist Church in Hebron with a reception to follow at the church. Doris had a vibrant personality and the family encourages those attending her Celebration of Life to wear bright colors in her memory. In lieu of flowers, remembrances can be made to the Yarmouth SPCA or charity of the donor’s choice. Online condolences may be made to or you may sign the guestbook online at

My condolences to the family of Doris MacNaughton. I met Doris many years ago at Dora's line dance class; Doris was a lovely person and I was touched by her kindness. I will miss seeing Doris at The Meadows.

Dear Lisa and family,
I can’t tell you how surprised I was to read about your Mom’s, and my friend’s passing🙁 I had just seen her at the Meadows, in her wheelchair a few weeks ago!
She was indeed a wonderful lady, and always had a smile on her face. As you all know, we did take paper tole classes together, we had some fun evenings together. I always looked forward to those evenings. I’m sure it was hard on all of you these past few years, not being able to do all the things you used to do, and the many conversations you must have had. Just know one thing girls, and that is, you were always there for your Mom, and did everything you could to make her comfortable along with happy. I shall miss her seeing her beautiful face, when I’m visiting at the
Meadows. Please know that you are in my thoughts❤️
Love & Prayers,

Barbara ( Davidson ) MacQuarrie

I am very sad to learn of Doris’ passing. She was a lovely person and will be missed by all who knew her. Katherine Bowlby and i ( fr Aylesford ) were flower girls at your parent's wedding in Bridgetown. An exciting and beautiful occasion for us getting ready at Aunt Millie’s house.
I am sure you will have the love and support if your family at this sorrowful time.
