MARGARET (PEGGY) MCKENZIE

(nee Wise)

After winning a hard fought battle with cancer, Peggy succumbed to other illnesses on June 16, 2015 on her 59th wedding anniversary, and is finally at peace.  She is survived by her husband,

Stanley, three sons, Doug, Glen (Karen) and Gord (Sue) and one grandson, Collin (Sylvie) as well as brothers-in-law Harry and George and extended family. 

She will be lovingly remembered by her family and her many close friends.Peggy was born and raised in Winnipeg.  She was an active choir member of the Atlantic Avenue United Church. She had begun a ten year career at the Bank of Nova Scotia when she met and married Stan.  Family and children became the priority and, once the boys were in school, she volunteered in school

libraries for nine years.  Later, she spent ten years working part-time for the Canada Revenue Agency. 

Most recently, she assisted Stan with volunteer dutiesfor the Retired Federal Superannuates. Spending time with friends and family was always important to Peggy as was bowling, a sport she enjoyed for 30 years.  Peggy loved to create personalized cards on her computer for family and friends and always made a point of keeping

in touch through several family moves across the country.  Camping trips with Stan and the boys provided some

of her fondest memories. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Sindi Ahluwalia Hawkins Centre for the Southern Interior, the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation, or a charity of your choosing.In accordance with her wishes, cremation has already taken place and there will be a private service for immediate family. Stan and the family would like to take

this opportunity to thank the staff of both the Kelowna General Hospital and the Cancer Centre for the Southern Interior for the professional and compassionate care she received while in their care. Stan would like to specifically thank Dr. Wadhwa for her very professional and caring advice.
