We are saddened to announce the homegoing of Jean Smith Mackey.
Jean was the last living charter member of Peoples Church, daughter of the Smith family who started this work. She was sister to Dr. Ronald Smith and Gordon Smith who were also charter members. All 3 played a very important part in establishing and growing this work. In the beginning days of the church and on through the 40’s to the 60’s this church had a strong presence on CJAD and one program that Jean worked hard to prepare was “The Sunday School of the Air”; she made sure that the children were ready, and that every detail was in place.
She was married to Stan Mackey who was also a key person committed to building the work and who served as a deacon and the treasurer. He predeceased Jean. She leaves 3 adult children, David, Nancy and Peter.
Today, as a congregation we thank God for those pioneers who had the vision which brought about Peoples Church of Montreal. God is good; He continues to bless this place.
