January 6, 1998 – Minnedosa, MB
August 13, 2013 – Calgary, AB
Mackenzie Elizabeth, otherwise known as “Daisy”, “Mack”, “Wayne” or “Child!” was born on January 6, 1998 in Minnedosa, Manitoba and joined the angels on Tuesday, August 13, 2013 in Calgary, Alberta.
Mackenzie will be deeply missed by her parents Shauna and Andrew Sielecki and Dax and Lindsay Nelson; baby brother Jaxon Sielecki and furry sister Mya; grandparents Ruth and Robert Spencer and Barrett and Susan Nelson; Uncle Derk Nelson (Kerri); cousins Madison and Anthony; Aunt Triss Parrott (Cory) as well as great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Family and friends remember Mackenzie’s crazy sense of humour, a love for animals and a passion for music and singing surpassed only by her attachment to her phone! Many don’t know that she was a talented artist and an expert mess maker! During her young life, Mackenzie tried her hand at most sports enjoying skiing, swimming, rugby, horseback riding, even learning to surf and according to her parents she enjoyed being dragged on long hikes (she just didn’t know it yet!). She enjoyed traveling with parents and grandparents and dreamed of one day returning to Ireland. Mackenzie always liked trips to Minnedosa to see her grandparents and go camping with her Dad. But what she loved most of all was snuggling up on the couch and watching a great movie (or really bad horror film) with a big batch of popcorn.
Since early childhood, Mackenzie’s trademark was wearing mismatched socks so everyone attending her Celebration of Life is welcome to pay tribute by wearing some wild sock combinations!
Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W. Calgary, AB) on Saturday, August 17, 2013 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.
