Aunt Viola will be remembered by me with her dark hair, brown eyes, warm smile and as a woman of faith.

My early memories are of Sunday visits and picking potatoes on the farm. She drove the potato truck, always working together with my uncle. I also remember the Banty hens she kept. I will remember us horseback riding, her joy in woodworking, her love of birds and feeding them in her yard. Good memories! Warm memories. Lasting memories!

I was pleased to know her - from the store days and since. Many good memories will be shared about her. Best wishes to all.

To all of the MacKay family. Sending sympathy to all of you in the passing of a great lady. As her church elder I enjoyed many visits with her at Caressant Care. She was always ready to share stories of her past and in doing so she shared her sense of humour and her strong faith. The past few months have been difficult for residents of nursing homes as well as their families when visiting and activities were put on hold. Please know that she treasured her family and friends and we give thanks for her fruitful long life. Ethel Corry

To the MacKay family,
It was our joy to know Vi and Archie when we ministered at Knox Listowel. She was a kind and loyal supporter who was very regular in her attendance at worship. I remember the numerous times I visited with Archie in his long struggle with his illness. May God care for you and comfort you as you give thanks for Vi and her life among you. Vern and Pauline Tozer
