(MacKINNON, nee FOX)
October 28, 1938 - August 22, 2022
What a wonderful life I've had. Nineteen years longer than I expected and almost to my 84th birthday! At the age of 60, I began telling everyone that I was on my last five years. I sure fooled them! I've been blessed with the warmth of a wonderful family and the satisfaction of gaining so many interesting and loyal friends along the way.
I was born and raised in Winnipeg and spent my life in Manitoba. I spent my youth growing up in St. James with my parents, Leroy and Betty Fox, and my sister Pearl, all predeceased. With my first husband, Joseph MacKinnon, I raised four children: daughters, Rose-Ann and Colleen (Rick); and sons, Kevin (Sharron) and Michael (Christine). In 1977, I married my second husband, Richard (Dick) Nowell, and I gained a stepson Richard (Alisa). In turn, from the five children, I was blessed with 13 grandchildren; Christa-Lynn, Shauna, Steven, Amanda, Georgia, Amber, Melanie, Karly, Jonathon, Dylan, Duncan, Rachel and Bonnie and many great-grandchildren. I also leave behind numerous nieces and nephews.
I enjoyed an active life, held many jobs and finally retired from my longest held position at Transport Canada. When I was younger, I loved singing and dancing, and then later other pastimes that I enjoyed were travelling (especially casino trips and cruises), bingo, canasta, aquacising and carpet bowling.
Special thanks go to all my children for being there for me; you never let me down. Thank you to the staff at Concordia Hospital for their care and compassion during my illness.
I don't want you to send flowers, but if you would like please consider a donation to a charity of your choice.
