Celebration of Life for Glenys Magill

Nov 16, 2020 by

On Oct 17 2020, we held a celebration of life for our dear friend Glenys Magill, who passed away suddenly in the spring.  It took place on the church lawn so that we could follow the COVID guidelines for gatherings.  Terry Dempsey and David Jones led the service and Glenys’s son-in-law did a lovely eulogy.  Her daughter Becky played Welsh tunes on the viola.  Along with a slide show in the narthex, there were intergenerational crafts, and a garden was planted with some 600 daffodils, complete with a dedication stone.  That will be gorgeous in the spring!!

This is from her obit:

It is with profound sadness that we share the loss of Glenys. Peacefully at her home, April 14, 2020 in her 73rd year. Beloved wife of Robin for 52 years and cherished mother of Sarah (Andy) Straisfeld, Rebecca (Craig) Kuchocki, and Megan. Adored nana to Charlotte and Benjamin Kuchocki, and Josephine and Nathaniel Robinson. Glenys will be dearly missed by her extended family David and Gaetana Magill, Cathy Davidson and her late husband Paul, and Diane and Mike Vrooman, as well as her nieces and nephews, and countless friends from MacNeill Baptist church, local choirs, bridge club and from her years of dedicated teaching. Glenys will be remembered for her incomparable dedication to family and friends, her passion for celebrating special days with family, her deep love of music, and her love of Three Mile Lake.

 

 

For those who could not be there, we arranged for a video of the service, prepared by Eric Papky and Michael Brown of Hive Studios/Drone Services Canada.
