Alice “Marie” McNulty (née Bruce) of Kincardine, died surrounded by her five children and husband of 69 years, at Huron Shores Hospice, Tiverton, Tuesday, May 16, 2023, at the age of 89. Born Feb. 27, 1934, in Renfrew, Ontario, she was the oldest daughter of five children born to William and Alice (née Friske) Bruce. From her one-room schoolhouse in Dacre, Ontario, to her graduation in Eganville, Marie worked in the restaurant business and RCA Victor television factory in Renfrew. She married Lloyd McNulty, Tuesday, July 14, 1953, and they had five children; Evelyn Mackey (Karl Miller), Jerry McNulty (Betty Ann), Helen Furnivall (Martyn), Allan McNulty (Erin) and James McNulty (Karen). She was a beloved Nana to 13 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. Marie was always there supporting her husband as they were transferred throughout the province working on dam and nuclear projects. At each location, they built multiple homes – together, they built 11 homes from start to finish. Her work ethic was second to none. A pillar of strength, love, and unity for her family, she always said her greatest accomplishment was the family she and Lloyd created. It was a circle that was strong. She spent her time playing cards and hosting Sunday night dinners, but most of all, was her love for music. She always had music playing around the house or she was singing. She was most proud of her boys who played her favourite music, bluegrass, on stages throughout the country. Never one to miss out on late-night jam sessions, she would always be out listening or conversing with friends. Marie was a member of the Catholic Women’s League at St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church, where her life will be celebrated with a private family mass. Final resting place, Kincardine Cemetery. The family is so thankful for the Huron Shores Hospice, the doctors, nurses and caring volunteers. Memorial donations to the Huron Shores Hospice would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy; arrangements entrusted to the Davey-Linklater Funeral Home, Kincardine;
