Eleanor Ann "Nan" Hosford

Eleanor Ann "Nan" Hosford

Eleanor "Nan" A. Hosford, 96, of Moncton, passed away peacefully at the Dr. Georges-L. Dumont University Hospital Centre, surrounded by her loving family,  on Friday, February 8, 2019. Born in Moncton, she was the daughter of the late John and Vera (Cosman) MacMillan. 

She was a member of the Lewisville Baptist Church and actively involved for many years. She was the beloved "Tut" to her grandchildren and great granddaughter. Although her given name was Eleanor, she was Nan to everyone. Her home was "home" to so many and she was so loved. Nan loved God, loved her family and loved animals and they loved her back. 

She was gifted at needlepoint and knitting, her works beautifully displayed in her home. She loved to laugh and enjoyed being surrounded by friends and family. 

Her beautiful smile will be missed. 

Nan is survived by her daughter, Debbie Magee (Bill); grandchildren, Krissy Magee and Ashley Wachira (Karue); great granddaughter, Amani Wachira; several nieces and nephews and a fur grandson "Gus". In addition to her parents, Nan was predeceased by her daughter, Judy Hosford; sister, Geraldine Manning and brother, Donald MacMillan. 

A celebration of Nan’s life will be held at Fergusons Funeral Home Chapel, 1657 Mountain Road, Moncton (858-1995) on Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 11:00 am, with Pastor Gordon MacLeod leading the service. Reception in the Funeral Home Reception Centre following the service.
