It is with great sadness that the family of Cindy Magee announce her passing at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary on Monday, June 1st.
Cindy was the oldest of five children born to Roy and Doreen Magee. She was raised in Canal Flats and moved to Cranbrook in 1976. Cin had a number of jobs from Radium to Cranbrook throughout the years and loved the social aspect of any job she had. She made friends easy, kept them for life and knew almost everyone in the entire valley. She was a friendly, happy and outgoing person who always had the time to stop and chat with anyone she happened to run into.
She was the first one in line to help out. She was a very caring, gentle woman who would give the shirt off her back if she thought someone needed it more than her. She volunteered at the Red Cross for the past 4 years where once again, she was able to help people in her happy, kind, friendly way.
She was an active ball player who loved not only the competitiveness of the game but also the team spirit. When she was unable to play ball after her stroke in 2007, she often went out to the ball fields to keep score or to cheer on a team. She loved her family with all her heart, and especially her two grandchildren Caitlyn and Cody who were the lights of her life. She had an awesome sense of humour, which she maintained to the very end.
She is survived by her daughter Dorian Kernaghan (Kris); her grandchildren Caitlyn and Cody; father Roy; sisters Terry Babin (Denis) Maryann Connochie (Dick) and Linda Magee (Tim); nieces and nephews Jesse (Racheal), Jason and Leah Nicholas, Kristin and Chelsey Magee, Shayley Connochie; her special great nieces and nephew Gia, Jacob and Rozlyn; and extended family.
A memorial service for Cindy will be held on Friday,
June 5th at McPhersons Funeral Home in Cranbrook at 11:00 am.
