PRING, Macie (nee Margaret Anne Harman)

January 31, 1941 ~ February 27, 2023

Our beautiful mother is finally at peace after a 10-year journey through Alzheimer’s. She was such a beautiful light in this world and will always be remembered for her kindness, compassion, unconditional acceptance of all and her immense love for art, music, animals, and nature. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported and cared for her during this time, especially to every one of the incredible caregivers and support staff at Greenwoods.

Macie was born in Kent, England, and served in the British Airforce for 12 years, from 1954 to 1968. She lived in England, Singapore, Northern Ireland, and emigrated to Canada in 1970. Macie was a a resident of Salt Spring Island since 1980. She was very active in the community, through a gymnastics club she started, her various art endeavors, her singing in multiple choirs, and her work at the community center to help others. She will be missed.
