Cecilia Grace (McKENZIE) ARCHER
Cecilia Grace (McKENZIE) ARCHER passed away on the morning of May 25, 2004, in Houston, Texas.
Grace was the younger daughter of Donald and Lena (FAIRMAN) McKENZIE, born on August 22, 1912, in Little Current, Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada. She was preceded in death by her husband C. Frank ARCHER, sister Ethel MILLER, and son-in-law Tom ARKELL, and is survived by daughter Marianne Arkell, brothers Donald and George McKenzie, granddaughter Joanne (Robert) McCay, grand_son Ken (Susan) Arkell, and great-grandchildren Jennika, Bobby, Tommy, Casey and Clint, and many cousins, nieces and nephews. What an interesting life Grace had, all 91 years! She began in a remote part of the Canadian wilderness (Manitoulin Island, the largest freshwater island in the world, she would often point out!) and lost her mother at a young age. Her father remarried Gertrude, added two sons to the family, and earned a living as a hunting and fishing guide to the likes of Henry Ford and the Roosevelts. Memories of her youth back in the early '20s included joining her father and sister on boating excursions and spending time at Strawberry Island with grandparents, William and Mary McKENZIE, where her father was lighthouse keeper. Married life began for Grace and Frank in the mining communities of Red Lake and Elliot Lake, Ontario, again very remote areas in the early '30s, often only accessible by plane. Grace never learned to drive a car, but she could handle a boat! Their daughter, Marianne, brought much joy and the two, mother and daughter, played many a card game on those cold winter nights. When Frank's health failed, the couple moved to the city where they worked as a team, managing apartment buildings in Hamilton and Toronto. After losing her husband, Grace became a 'globetrotter', traveling and enjoying family and Friends to the utmost of her ability. In later years, she slowed down (by her standards) and enjoyed sharing laughter with Friends and family, playing cards and watching any sport, especially baseball and her teams: the Blue Jays and Astros. Our Gramma Grace had a gift for making any situation, good or bad, a better one. She had such a zest for life, a fun loving spirit, a quick wit, and a kindness and sensitivity for others that was remarkable, yet she was very, very humble. When you look up the meaning of the word "grace", amongst the definitions you find 'generosity of spirit: a capacity to tolerate, accommodate or forgive people', 'pleasing and admirable quality', 'dignified, polite and decent behaviour', and 'gift' and it would seem she was very well named. Anyone who knew Grace ARCHER will have a happy thought or memory of her, that is her gift to us, and we will all surely miss her.
