It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Madge Henrietta Gagnon, 87, at Gables Lodge, on Tuesday, March 12, 2024.  

Madge was born in Amherst Head, NS, a daughter of the late Roy and Mabel (Crossman) Mason. 

Madge had been an active member of St. Charles and Holy Family Parish Roman Catholic Churches and devoted over 40 years to the CWL. She hardly ever missed a luncheon at the church.  She was very crafty, often making blankets and sweaters and was famous for her homemade donuts.  She loved going to the cottage for the summer and working on her tan.

Madge was a kind and caring mother, grandmother and great grandmother.

She will be sadly missed by her daughters, Shirley Ann (Richard) Porter, of Amherst, Donna (Phillip Fairfax) Gagnon, of Amherst and Michelle (Greg Johnson) Morse, of Winnipeg; 11 grandchildren; 15 great grandchildren; her sons-in-law, Donald Goodwin and Michael Ferguson, as well as several nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents, Madge was predeceased by her husband, Earl; her daughters, Judy Goodwin and Carolyn Ferguson, and her grandchildren, Michelle, Mark, and Stephen Goodwin.

Arrangements are in care of Jones Family Funeral Centre, 70 Church St., Amherst, NS (902-667-8777). Visitation will be held from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, March 14, 2024.  A funeral mass to celebrate Madge’s life will be held at 11am on Friday, March 15, 2024 at Holy Family Catholic Parish, 63 Church Street, Amherst, Nova Scotia. 

Donations in memory of Madge may be made to The Society of St. Vincent de Paul; or the charity of choice.
