MacKenzie MacIver, Jean Katherine

1924 - 2020

C'est avec une profonde tristesse que nous annonçons le décès d'une merveilleuse mère, grand-mère, arrière-grand-mère et amie à tant de personnes, dans sa 96e année. Jean Katherine MacKenzie a été doucement soulevée de cette terre, par les gracieuses mains de son Seigneur, aux petites heures du matin du 30 décembre 2020, alors qu'elle dormait, après un bref séjour à l'hôpital. Jean fut prédécédée par son fils Dale et elle laisse dans le deuil ses enfants, Dalton (Mary), Dannie, Gloria (Jacques Carrier), Barbara et Kevin. Elle était la grand-mère aimante de 13 petits-enfants, âgés de 12 ans à 49 ans, ainsi que de 16 arrière-petitsenfants et 4 beaux-petits-enfants. Elle était l’épouse bien-aimée de 48 ans, d'Alexander MacIver, jusqu'à son décès en 1994. Née à Milan, au Québec, en juillet 1924 de John N. MacKenzie et Christie Murray, Jean a grandi sur le chemin Yard et était la seule enfant après la perte de son frère aîné, John, peu après sa naissance. Elle a été inculquée, depuis ses débuts, avec une foi profonde en Dieu et a vécu sa vie à son service tout en respectant les 9 attributs énoncés dans Galates chapitre 5, versets 22-23: Mais le fruit de l'Esprit est l'amour, joie, paix, patience, gentillesse, bonté, fidélité, 23 douceurs et maîtrise de soi. Un service funéraire et un enterrement auront lieu en avril ou mai au cimetière Echo Vale à Marsboro, Québec. La date suivra, dans une annonce publique au printemps. Au lieu de fleurs, des dons à l'église presbytérienne St.Andrews, 256, rue Queen, Sherbrooke (Lennoxville), Québec, J1M 1K6, seraient grandement appréciés.

We're very sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs MacIver. My parents , Doug & Mabel Mackay were great friends of hers. Dad called her Mrs Maceevers. My husband called she & Alice Price " The White Nuns" because of the long white dresses in the Eastern Star. She was a wonderful, lovely lady & will be missed by many.

The family of Jean MacIvet

On behalf of the Session, Congregation and myself, Rev. Susan Smith, I wish to extend my deepest sympathies to you all. Jean was a wonderful lady and a gentle soul and a faithful disciple of the Lord.
In the just over 3 years I have ministered at St. Andrew's, Lennoxville, Jean rarely missed church, other than illness or bad weather. She will be greatly missed by all. May God bless you and comfort you and surround you with his love and peace.

Rev. Susan Smith, le 8 janvier 2021

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time.
A very warm, kind and witty woman. She was such a fountain of information whenever I needed to trace my roots.
We will miss you dear friend.

To all the family

I am deeply saddened to hear the news of Jean's passing -- I first met her in 1976 while her parents were living in Scotstown. What happy memories, of their kindness, and their welcome every time I visited. I will always remember when Jean's mother and father were in the Nursing Home in Sherbrooke , Jean was the epitome of devotion and grace, a very special daughter to them, and a wonderful friend to all who knew her. Jean was also the last of her generation whose mother-tongue was Gaelic – she soon became fluent in English and French, though would speak Gaelic to her parents and also with her husband Alex. She had a wonderful sense of humour and fun, as well as such kind and caring ways. She will be much missed.
My sincere condolences to Jean's family – may all your cherished memories always be with you.
