With deep sadness, I announce the passing of my beloved sister, Hilary Ann McKay, on August 30th, 2023. She valiantly fought against Leiomyosarcoma, a form of cancer, for a prolonged period of time. Hilary was born to George and Hilda (Woodall) Smith in Fredericton. Regrettably, Hilary was preceded in death by her loving husband, Jack, as well as her sister, Marion, and brother, Richard.
Hilary’s memory will be cherished by her surviving brother, Stephen, along with numerous nieces, nephews, and her dearest feline companion, Garfield. She held a passion for playing golf and cherished the camaraderie and mirth shared with her golf companions throughout the years. A message from Hilary to her golf buddies: she wanted them to know how much she adored them and appreciated the delightful moments they experienced together on the golf course. Furthermore, she encouraged the ladies to maintain their impressive shots, ensuring they were both long and straight.
If you wish to honor Hilary’s memory, please consider making a donation to the Fredericton Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) or a charity that resonates with your heart. In accordance with her wishes, there will be no funeral service held to commemorate Hilary’s life. The loss of Hilary Ann McKay is immeasurable, and she will forever be remembered for her bravery, love, and the joy she brought to those around her. May her soul find eternal peace.
