Lail Laurretta MacKeigan

Lail Laurretta MacKeigan passed away peacefully in Hamilton, Ontario on Saturday, November 16, 2019.

Lail grew up in Glace Bay, NS and was the daughter of the late Neil MacKeigan and Pearl MacKeigan Cosnick (MacDonald).

She was predeceased by her brother, James A. MacKeigan (Margaret); step-dad, Gussie Cosnick; and step-sister, Joan Cosnick.

Lail is survived by Jeannette Whiting; brothers, Murdoch (Joan), Stuart (Dianne) and Calvin (Mora Ann); special cousin, Isabel Strong; step-sisters, Carole Anne Franson, AB, Marjorie Miller, Sydney and Claire Christianson, Dominion; step-brothers, Donald (Rachel), Gardiner Mines and Chris Cosnick, AB; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Lail graduated from the Nova Scotia Teachers College, the University of New Brunswick and received her Masters of Education from the University of Niagara.  She taught in numerous schools throughout Canada and retired from the career she loved in 1996 at Parkside High in Dundas.

Many thanks go out to Dr. Hirte and staff at the Juravinski Cancer Center and St. Joseph Hospital’s doctors and staff of the Critical Care Unit for their care and compassion shown to Lail and her family. We thank the VON for the warmth shown during home visits. Thanks to all Lail’s family and friends for their assistance and prayers during her struggle.

It was Lail’s wish that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Juravinski Cancer Clinic (ovarian research) made payable to the Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation or HHSF in memory of Lail L. MacKeigan, Hamilton Health Sciences, PO Box 739, LCD1, Hamilton, ON, L8P 1A4.
