Obituary for Shirley MAC KENZIE

MACKENZIE, Shirley (September 8, 1938 – November 6, 2023) – Shirley MacKenzie (nee Hart) passed away on Monday, November 6, 2023, after a short and courageous battle with cancer.

Predeceased by her husband Ken MacKenzie (2008).

She will be greatly missed by her 3 children Christine, Kenny (Shayna) and Brian (Val), grandchildren Kaitlin, Chelsey (Sarah) and Cameron and great granddaughters Emilia, Abigail, Georgia and Charlotte. Survived by her siblings Linda, Larry and Mable, as well as many nieces and nephews who will miss her dearly.

Born in Sydney Mines, Cape Breton Nova Scotia as 1 of 18 children, she was a true Cape Bretoner, loved and like many and disliked few. Shirley was a very caring and loving person, always putting others before herself. Shirley loved playing cards, boardgames and bingo with family and friends, but if she thought you might be cheating, she would let you know! Games night will never be the same without her. As per her request, there will be no visitation or formal service.

A celebration of life will take place on a future date that will be announced.

In remembering Shirley, please consider donating to one of the following charities, Canadian Cancer Society, Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Woodstock Hospital-Palliative Unit.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the SMITH-LeROY FUNERAL HOME, 69 Wellington St. North, Woodstock (519-537-3611). Personal condolences may be sent at
