Jessie was born in Harbourview on October 14, 1942 to parents Hughie and Sadie (MacDougall) MacInnis. Jessie was truly a beautiful person, inside and out, with a deep faith in God. Her warmth, generosity, kindness, and sense of humour endeared her to all. She was always a willing and capable community volunteer in Judique and Creignish. Family was everything to Jessie, family included her children and their friend’s, grandchildren, cherished siblings, nieces and nephews, cousins, in-laws, neighbors and friends, especially her closet friend Janice.
