The community of Yarmouth, N.S., is in mourning after a tragedy at the town’s Santa Claus parade claimed the life of four-year-old MaCali Cormier.

The girl is being remembered by her family for her love of swimming, dancing, horseback riding, and camping, according to her obituary.

“Most of all, MaCali will be remembered as a little girl who loved helping other people,” read the obituary, which was posted on a funeral home’s website.

She was a student at the pre-primary program at Yarmouth Central School and “couldn’t wait to go to the brand new school they were building across the street,” it went on.

The young girl’s family is also mourning her as “an awesome big sister” to her two younger siblings.
