It is with great sadness that we announce that our dear friend Margery Mackenzie passed peacefully in Belleville, ON at age 93 on 26 April, 2013. Margery was the widow of Malcolm Blair Mackenzie and the loving mother of Susan, Jane (Peter Davis), Michael (Anne Page), Brian (Ann Matheson), and Martha Andersson (Bengt), grandmother of Kate, Jamie, David and Colin, and great grandmother of Logan.
A long-time summer resident at Cap à l’Aigle she opened Torwood for many community celebrations including our annual bonfire at the Torwood beach. She hosted luncheons to celebrate the anniversaries of St. Peter on the Rock for the 100th and 125th events. For many years she served on “the committee” who prepared the chaplaincy for occupancy each month. In addition, she generously offered flowers from her garden to grace the church each Sunday. On Sunday mornings she was usually the first to arrive to greet old and new friends and to make everyone feel at home. Although she has been absent from Cap à l’Aigle for several years she has been in our prayers.
At Margery’s request there will be no service; her ashes will be interred at Cap à l’Aigle, QC this summer. For those who wish, donations in Margery’s memory may be made to the Church of St. Peter on the Rock (at Cap à l’Aigle) c/o The Treasurer, 7 Basildon Cr., Brampton, ON, L6T 2N1.
