Florence Atwood McGrattan

1928-2024

Florence Atwood McGrattan

Florence Atwood McGrattan passed away peacefully at the Charlotte County Hospital on Monday, May 20, 2024. Florence was born in Wilson’s Beach, Campobello, NB on December 3, 1928.  She was the daughter of the late Atwood and Ruby (Brown) Savage.

She is survived by her sons Stanley (Louise) of St. George NB and Rod (Jack) of Charlottetown PEI, her grandchildren, Danny, Joel, John and Darcy, many great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Florence was predeceased by her husband Henry (Junior) and siblings Stanley, Ethelbert (Ep), Vernon (Jiggs), Malcolm (Saul), Joyce and Harriet.

Florence was a familiar face to many in the local area. Her entire working career was serving the public in retail. From McKay’s Grocery, Hanselpacker’s Red and White, St. George Pharmacy and operating her own store on the L’Etete Road, where she always met her customers with a smile.

Following retirement from Guardian Drug, Florence was an active member in the Granite Town Seniors. Her passion for Tuesday’s bowling trips with "the girls" was something nobody dared interfere with. Watching her ball games with the BlueJays was always a special time and everyone was aware to call after the game was over. One thing she always treasured was special occasions with family and she never missed sending a card or present.

The family would like to express our deepest thanks to the staff at the Campobello Lodge Nursing Home. Her last couple of years were made so much better by the fantastic care she received. All her days in St. George, she never stopped calling Campobello "down home". A special thanks to the doctors and staff at the Charlotte County Hospital as well.

Arrangements in the care of the St. George Funeral Home (506-755-3533) 26 Portage Street, St. George NB. In keeping with Florence’s wishes, there will be no visitation. A grave side service will be held at the Wilson’s Beach Cemetery later this summer. In her memory, donations to the Charlotte County Cancer Society or a charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated by the family.
