The passing of Maisie Marie (Wilson) Mean occurred at the Fundy Nursing Home, Blacks Harbour, NB on February 21, 2020 with her family at her side. Born in McNamee, NB on June 20, 1929, she was the daughter of the late Murray and Clara (O’Donnell) Wilson.
A loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and sister, Maisie is survived by her daughter, Beth Hatt (David) of Utopia, NB; grandchildren, Derek Hatt (Jody) and Dawn Marie Glennie, both of St. George, NB; great-grandchildren, Felicia, Garrett, Gracyn, Hudson and Charlee; one brother, Purdy Wilson of Moncton, NB; one stepson, Elwood Mean and family of Fredericton; very special nieces and nephews, Debra, Murray, Iva Lynn, Athalie, Clara, Sheila, Stephen, Clarke, Charlene, and Keith; several grand-nieces, nephews and cousins; a chosen family of St. George who knew her as “Tata”, Gifford, Marjorie, Mike, Glenn and Debbie; and many special friends.
In addition to her parents, Maisie was predeceased by her husband Horace Mean and brother: Karl Wilson.
Prior to retirement, Maisie worked in several fields and retired from J.D. Irving Woodlands. Her working years started with her family in McNamee, NB at Wilson’s Sporting Camps, Boiestown Lumber Company, Bank of Nova Scotia, then on to working with an accounting firm in Montreal before returning back to NB to work for JDI. Maisie was a member of the Sea View Full Gospel Church in Back Bay. She was passionate about Missions around the world, and she was one of the initial founders of AMI (Atlantic Missions Inc.) and the WMF (Women’s Mission Fellowship), whose role is to support missionaries, their families, and special mission projects.
Maisie’s hobbies and interests mostly were consumed with her mission vision and the mission fields she loved: Spain, Columbia, France, Philippines and Montreal, places that were very close to her heart. In her spare time she was always going somewhere; trips, visiting, you name it, she often was referenced by her family and friends as the “Road Runner”. She loved visiting with friends and family, especially around a table for meals, a good cup of tea with lots of discussion, various conversation, and lots of laughter, most times including a reminiscing of peculiar experiences or adventures.
The family would like to thank her friends for all their friendships that filled her life with joy, and the Fundy Nursing Home, with its family and friendship atmosphere, for their compassion and care given to Maisie in her final years.
