Kate Mac Donald passed peacefully at home surrounded by family and loved ones after celebrating her 64th birthday. She is survived by her loving husband of 38 years, Mark, and beloved son, Ian. Also, brothers Keith (Chris) Smith, Craig (Kristin) Smith, Sisters-in-law MaryLou and Noel Mac Donald, and Brothers-in-law Patrick Mac Donald and Jay Reamer.
Daughter of Jack and Susan Smith, Kate was born in Indianapolis and grew up outside of Pittsburg and Adrian, Michigan, moving to Christiana, Lancaster County in 1983, where she lived for 25 years until moving to Lancaster Twp. She was recently employed at Stauffers Garden Center on Rohrerstown Rd. Her love of Horticulture blossomed as co-owner of Christiana Floral in Christiana, where she also managed the cut-flower stand at Central Market. She then became proprietor of The Enchanted Flower Shoppe in Lancaster. Her private perennial gardens were an inspiration to any serious gardener.
Mark, Ian and family. We are so sorry to hear of Kate’s passing. Found out the other day and it was a shock. Have fond memories of Kate you and Ian. Last time I saw her was in the floral shop. That was a few years back. Let me know if we can do anything. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Mark and Ian, The Bond Family was saddened to hear about your loss. Kate was always such a joy to be with and a wonderful person. We hope you are getting along okay. Lou and Kim
