The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - OBITUARIES -

Mar­garet Kennedy died peace­fully, Wed­nes­day, July 12, 2017, age 90, at the Prince County Hospi­tal, Summerside, with three of her lov­ing chil­dren by her side. Born in Tyne Val­ley, De­cem­ber 6, 1926 to the late Thomas and Lucy

(Birch) Nis­bet, Mar­garet grad­u­ated from Prince of Wales Col­lege, mar­ried

Ron Kennedy (1951) and lived in Kens­ing­ton where a very ac­tive fam­ily of six chil­dren was raised, all of whom she was very proud: Deb­bie (Jim Fer­gu­son), Sechelt, B.C.; Peggy (Grant Gib­son), Summerside, P.E.I.; Michael (Car­rie Glea­son), Mis­sis­sauga, Ont.; Tom (Wendy Hol­land), Air­drie, Alb.; Kathy, Summerside, P.E.I.; and Karen (Don Richard­son), Guelph, Ont. She greatly en­joyed her grand­chil­dren: Emily, Kyle, and Meghan Gib­son; Chelsea, Nigel and Ju­lian Kennedy; Scott, Todd, Matthew and Kayla Kennedy; and Jack and Molly Richard­son. Mar­garet worked in the busi­ness of­fice at Prince County Hospi­tal and moved to Summerside in her later years. She is sur­vived by her sis­ter He­len (Shel) MacKay, Hol­land Land­ing, Ont., and brother Ron (Olga) Nis­bet, Oakville, Ont., and nu­mer­ous nieces and neph­ews. She is pre­de­ceased by her brothers, Jack and War­ren, and her sis­ters, Lucy (Stan­ley) Forbes, and Betty (Jim) Ni­chol­son. Mar­garet was a com­pletely un­pre­ten­tious and re­silient woman who em­bod­ied many other ad­mirable Is­lander traits in­clud­ing hu­mil­ity, per­se­ver­ance, warmth, and a charm­ing sense of hu­mour. Her hob­bies in­cluded a fan­tas­tic col­lec­tion of the “Three Wise Mon­keys”, beau­ti­ful wa­ter­colour paint­ing, and ex­ten­sive ge­neal­ogy work on the Nis­bet and Kennedy fam­i­lies. She will be sadly missed and very fondly re­mem­bered by all who knew her, and she would be very em­bar­rassed by this hon­est de­scrip­tion of a sweet woman who asked for noth­ing and gave all that she could. The fam­ily ex­tends their sin­cere thanks for the lov­ing care given by all dur­ing her stay in hospi­tal. A cel­e­bra­tion of life will be held in Au­gust.
