One of Sackville's oldest residents, Eunice was just two weeks away from her 102nd birthday and was the last surviving member of her immediate family. Born on November 9th, 1905, in Sackville, N.B., she was the daughter of the late James Leaman and Margaret Olivia Louise (Avard) Dixon. Eunice graduated from Mount Allison University in 1928 and went on to teach at Mount Allison Academy. In 1932, Eunice married Major Waldo McCormack. She was a charter member of the Sackville Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, a longtime and active member of the Sackville United Church, member of the U.C.W and member of the Women's Fellowship of the Sackville United Church. Eunice was known for her great interest and knowledge of history and genealogy. In her later years, one of Eunice's greatest pleasures was going to eat at the Bell Inn in Dorchester, N.B. and meeting and talking with people. She will be greatly missed by her sister-in-law Joyce Dixon of Sackville, N.B. and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Waldo McCormack; by her only child Marjorie McCormack and by her two brothers Edgar and Carman.
