I really like your Sheet Harbour web-site- it's very informative with warmth and personality. I wanted to write to share the news of my Nana's passing. She was a longtime Sheet Harbour resident.
Lillian Campbell MacMillan graduated from the Dalhousie College of Pharmacy in 1935. When her colleague Helen Balcolm wanted to go on vacation, she asked Lillian to cover for her at the pharmacy in Sheet Harbour. Once there, Lillian met Dr. Duncan MacMillan. Soon afterward, he began to pick up all of his prescriptions himself, instead of giving the prescription pages to his patients or sending in the orders by messenger. After they married, Lillian stayed in Sheet Harbour to raise their children while actively supporting his around-the-clock medical practice, as well as his political career as MLA representing Halifax East in the legislature. She used to make up his prescriptions, mix up the barium for his x-rays, pick up patients, and do all kinds of work at all hours.
After his death, Lillian moved to Halifax, but often talked about wanting to go home to Sheet Harbour. Now, she will be coming home. I've been told that just about everyone over the age of fifty or so was brought into this world by my grandfather, and those younger might remember that Sheet Harbour's high school and nursing home were named after him (for a while, at least. The nursing home has changed, and I know the city has some big plans to change the schools.) So maybe your readers would like to know they are all welcome at her service which will be this Saturday, Dec.14 at 1pm in the Masonic Hall in Sheet Harbour.
