WORCESTER - Nancy I. Mac Donald, 62, of Worcester, died Saturday, September 10, 2022 at St. Vincent Hospital. 

She leaves Jill Goyette and her children Joseph, Jessica, and Cameron Goyette, all of Worcester.  She also leaves a sister, Marijane Beaudet of Leominster, two brothers, P. Thomas Mac Donald and family of Maryland and Timothy Mac Donald of South Hadley, MA, her best friend of 30 years, Heidi Loando of Milford; nieces and nephews, especially Keith Beaudet and partner Jessica Lowe of Leominster and Rachel Dixon and her husband Kevin of Plymouth.  Nancy also leaves two grandnephews, Gavin and Dylan, and a grandniece Vivienne.  Nancy had become a beloved member of the Goyette Family.  She was extremely appreciative of the love and support given to her by Lois Ducharme and John Harper during her cancer battle.  Nancy also leaves her muses David and Erin.  She was born in Watertown, MA, daughter of the late Ralph J. and Judith A. (Donovan) Mac Donald.  She graduated from Marlborough High School and earned a bachelor's degree from UMass Amherst.

Nancy was a professional photographer, owner of Nancy Mac Donald Photography.  She was a free spirit, she loved hard, and she had a heart of gold.  Nancy loved her animals, her Jeeps and her small circle of friends that she kept very close.  We hope Peewee and Hank are welcoming her with wagging tails.
