From: Tracy McKay
Relation: Was my Great Aunt

My condolences Doug, Ray & family. She was a special lady that I so loved to talk to and visit when we both lived near by! She told me a lot of stories and made a lot of jello/fruit desserts I loved! McKay cousins would love to keep in touch with you two! RIP Auntie Jean, last of an awesome generation! xox Tracy

From: Lisa Henderson
Relation: Jean was my great aunt

I don’t seem to be able to find an obituary for Sara Jean Buckle. Since she was in her 100th year and saw a lot in her lifetime, she deserves a bit of notice. My deceased mother Faye was her niece and I know Jean was her favourite aunt.
I always found Jean to be kind and down to earth, very independent and stubborn. She was the last of 10 children born to John McKay and Kate Fay McLeod. Her hometown was Radville, Saskatchewan and she lived in Saskatchewan until the early 1980s. She also spent decades in B.C., living in various locations in Victoria and Vancouver before moving to Powell River a few years ago to be near her sons, Doug and Ray. My condolences to you both, on behalf of my family.
Your mom had a hard life, losing her mother when she was only six years old and being brought up by her dear sister Annie Bloor. She told me she had few memories of her parents but she had many memories of others. Her brother Charlie, who died at age 97, was a great friend of hers and wrote poetry dedicated to her.
The last time I saw Jean she was in Burnaby and as sweet as she had ever been to me, even though she was losing her independence from infirmity and that made her mad. She was such a McKay, so much like her brother Archie, my dear grandfather. I will always cherish memories of her.
In the past few years news of Jean came to me from her nephew Ron McKay in Prince George, who called her often. We lost him last year and I know Jean must have missed his voice lately.
