Muriel Frances (Mike) MacKay
Our beautiful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, loved by many, was born in Kindersley, Saskatchewan, October 1, 1918 and died in Ottawa February 19, 2017. An artist, designer and owner of the shop, Mike’s Miniatures, Mom could handle a rifle or entertain diplomats, and she square-danced well into her early nineties. Mike was predeceased by her husband J. Gordon MacKay and is survived by her sons Michael MacKay (Marian), John (Biff) MacKay (Brenda), 5 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. She will also be missed by her dear friend Bill Carr. We are grateful for the care and comfort provided by her friend Jennie Cooke and the caring staff at the Red Oak Retirement Residence. Mike received exemplary care from the staff of the Queensway-Carleton Hospital. A service will be held at Stittsville United Church, 6255 Fernbank Road, Stittsville at 3:30 pm on Monday, February 27. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the church for her.
