The Oregonian (Portland, Oregon)
December 21, 1988

Mass of Christian Burial for the Rev. Angus Robert McDonald of Beaverton will be at 1 p.m. Wednesday in the chapel of Maryville Nursing Home in Beaverton.

The Rev. McDonald died Sunday of respiratory arrest in a Beaverton nursing home. He was 65.

Born Aug. 18, 1923, in Grand Forks, N.D., he was raised and educated in East Grand Forks, Minn. He was a graduate of the St. Thomas Military Academy in St. Paul, Minn., and also graduated from Gonzaga University in Spokane and the Gregorian University in Rome.

He was ordained April 24, 1965, in Fairbanks, Alaska, and became the first diocesan priest for the Jesuit Missionary Diocese in Fairbanks. He taught philosophy at St. Thomas Major Seminary in Seattle, Chaminade University in Honolulu and at Central Catholic High School in Portland.

He had served in the Baker Diocese and in the Portland Archdiocese until his retirement because of illness in 1986.

Survivors include his sisters, Jean McDonald Johnson of San Diego and Catherine McDonald Norman of Carmichael, Calif.; and his brother, Donald J. of Miami.

A second funeral service will be conducted in East Grand Forks, Minn.

The family suggests that remembrances be contributions to the Missionary Diocese of Fairbanks.
