October 9, 1940 – August 12, 2020
It is with great sorrow that I have to announce the passing of my beloved wife of 61 years and dear friend, Margaret Mary (Sunni) McAully. Affectionately known to all as “Sunni” for her sunny disposition and constant smile. She passed away suddenly on August 12th in her 80th year.
Sunni was born in Portsmouth, England, on October 9th, 1940. She spent the war years in Ireland, returning to England in 1950, before following me to Canada in 1964.
We were married in 1959 and were blessed with three children: Simon (Carol), Sarah, and Stuart, four grandchildren: Brandon (Caitlin), Bronwyn, Andrew, and Emily, and two great-grandchildren: Grayson and Mabel, and one fur grand-dog, Socks.
The premature death of our son, Simon, was always a great sorrow to her.
Until the onset of Alzheimer’s, Sunni loved to cook and was always helping others with her welcoming smile during her membership in the Cowichan Lodge Auxiliary, as well as serving in the Sassy Lion.
Sunni will be sorely missed by her family and all who knew her, for her genuine warmth, kindness, wry sense of humour, and infectious laugh.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your favourite charity in her memory.
