Aletta "Jean" Macumber


Aletta "Jean" Macumber

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Aletta "Jean" Macumber of Utopia NB, in her 93rd year, on May 26, 2024 at the Saint John Regional Hospital, Saint John NB. Wife of the late Clinton Burton Macumber, she was born in Philips Harbour NS on October 14, 1931, the daughter of the late Joseph and Lelia Grant.

Jean is survived by her four daughters: Brenda Macumber-Young (Richard) of Pennfield NB, Karen Wheeler (David) of Seeley’s Cove NB, Korina Macumber-Hooper (Greg) of Lake Utopia NB and Angela Scovil (Peter) of Canal NB; one son: Clinton Andrew Macumber of St. Andrews NB; seven grandchildren: Lindsay Leavitt (Ian), Ashley Craig (Cody Tucker), Amanda Hennessey (Shaun), Bryanne Hatt, Grant Wheeler (Allie), Nicholas Shaw and JD Hooper; her great-grandchildren: Dylan and Liam Leavitt, Molly and Freya Hennessey, Harley and Nova Hatt and Charlotte Shaw; her sisters: Joice Mitchell of Beaver Harbour NB and Debbie Carvell (Gary) of Beaver Harbour NB; several nieces, nephews and cousins. In addition to her parents and her husband, she was predeceased by brothers: Donald, Frank, Reginald, Herbert, Barry and Edward; and by two sisters: Joan Wright and Betty Flavin.

Prior to retirement, Jean worked side by side with her husband Clinton as co-owners of Clint’s Milk Mart in Pennfield. Jean loved her family and devoted her time to taking care of them. She loved nothing more than to be in the company of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Jean loved to bake, read, and in her younger years, enjoyed being out tending to her garden. When able, she could be found watching the birds from her sunroom. She will be sadly missed by her family and friends.

The family would like to send a special thank you to Sabrina Vance and Dawn Winters of Home Support Services for their special care and love you showed to our mother. Thank you to Eastern Charlotte Extra Mural for all their compassion throughout the years. We wish to also thank Dr. Hemmings and all the staff of the Palliative Care Unit of the Saint John Regional Hospital for the exceptional care our mother received.

Arrangements in the care of the St. George Funeral Home (506-755-3533) 26 Portage Street, St. George NB. In keeping with Jean’s wishes there will be no visitation. A private family graveside service will take place at the Pennfield Rural Cemetery, Pennfield NB at a later date. In Jean’s memory, in lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of the donor’s choice would be greatly appreciated by the family.

As a family we take comfort in knowing that she is flying free with the Angels that loved her.
