Margaret Mckay

May 11, 1922 - February 25, 2012


Margaret Warnock McKay passed away February 25th 2012.

Marg was born in Nelson in 1922 and grew up on the Granite Road.. At 16 she went to Vancouver to pursue a career in Hair Dressing.

Marg returned to Nelson where she met and married Harold Stuart. They had 2 children, Brian and Shelley.

Marg and Harold were very active in the local square dancing club and Marg was a long time member of the Eastern Star.

Harold died suddenly in 1965 and Marg went back to work to support her two children. She opened up her own Hair Salon on Ward Street named The Shelley Ann after her daughter.

Marg was blessed in meeting another wonderful man named Danny McKay. They married in 1969 which added two more sons , Ross and Rod to her family. Marg and Danny were both very artistic and loved spending their spare time learning and creating

new crafts. They spent their summers at Schroeder Creek, camping, fishing and nightly campfires.

Marg”s greatest joy were her children and grandchildren. She loved sharing her knowledge of crafts and the granddaughters always came home from Grandma”s with a very stylish hairdo.

Danny passed away in 1990 and Marg kept herself busy with her garden, drives out the lake and quality time with her grandchildren. Ill health led Marg to reside at Mountain Lakes for the last 3 years where her great sense of humor made everyone smile.

Marg is survived by her son Brian(Debbie), stepsons Ross(Sue), Rod(Linda), and grandchildren, Jeff, Tim(Blair), and Jenny Mckay. Jaqui Maley. Kelsey and Tyler Stuart.

She was predeceased by her two brothers Andy and Doug Speirs, and her daughter Shelley.

Marg was a great friend, a loving wife, wonderful mother and Grandmother. She will be missed greatly.
