It is with very heavy hearts we must announce Kirsten Lee MacKay of Liverpool, Nova Scotia, has left us, saddened and grieving, on the 18th of February 2023 at a far too young age of 52. Our beloved daughter, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend will be missed by all who knew her.
Chrissy was predeceased by her doting, loving father, Charles William MacKay, and is survived by her mother Enid (Hartlin) MacKay, Liverpool, children Casey Roy and Hannah Roy (both of Halifax), grandchildren Sawyer and Charlie Gaetz (Hannah’s children), Arya Roy (Casey and Kerri’s daughter) and Aaliyah Westlake (Kerri’s daughter/Casey’s step-daughter) brother Duane (Anne) MacKay Milton, beloved daughter-in-law Kerri Burris, Cole Harbour, and common-law partner Chris Bagnell, Bedford, amongst her many other family and friends.
Chrissy grew up in Liverpool and migrated to Eastern Passage in 1998, where she worked diligently to upgrade her education and training to pursue better things for herself and her children. After working for a few years as a Dental Assistant with the Department of National Defense, Chrissy decided to join the Canadian Armed Forces as a Dental Technician, a challenging role that she maintained for 13 years before medically retiring from the Military and the Dental occupation.
Chrissy was unabashedly proud and protective of her children and grandchildren, putting their needs ahead of her own for most of her life. She was a strong, independent woman who overcame adversity in her life, including a successful battle against kidney cancer. She also had a very keen eye for photography, whether it was a beautiful landscape or preserving memories of her grandchildren, Chrissy always managed to get the perfect shot. She loved being lakeside at the family cottage on Harmony Lake but her greatest love was always reserved for her family. 
A reception service will be held in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, on Saturday March 4th at 1pm to 3pm at Chandlers’ Funeral Home, 91 Union Street, Liverpool, NS where prayers will be said at 2:00 p.m. Live stream will be available at 2:00 for those unable to attend in person. Memorial Donations in lieu of cards and flowers may be made in Chrissy’s name to the Kidney Foundation of Canada. Online condolences may be made to
The family wishes to thank her many friends and family that supported them during this time of grief.
