Margaret MacKenzie of Calgary, passed away peacefully at the Intercare Chinook Care Centre on Monday, August 13, 2007 at the age of 91 years.
Margaret was born and raised in Glasgow Scotland, and in 1933 was married to Jim. A few years after his passing she re-married Hughie MacKenzie. Margaret and Hughie immigrated to Canada in 1966 following in the footsteps of some of her children. They landed in Montreal and later moved to Calgary. Margaret loved to travel, seeing many parts of the world, but her visits to Banff and Bragg Creek were always very special to her. She made many friends and brought joy to many people and will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all of those she touched.

She will also be lovingly remembered by her daughter-in-law Anne Kennedy; her twenty-two grandchildren, forty-one great-grandchildren and eleven great-great-grandchildren. Margaret was predeceased by her first husband James Kennedy in 1960; second husband Hughie MacKenzie in 1992; three sons, Bill, James and John Kennedy; two grandchildren, Arthur Bryans and Jason Kennedy; by her son-in-law Sam Bryans; and by her grandson-in-law Lorne Crocker.
