Obituary of Betty McKenna

On June 6th, 2024 at her home in Tryon, PE, peacefully and surrounded by her loving family Betty Lena McKenna aged 75 was called to her heavenly home. Survived by her loving husband of 54 years, Wayne McKenna, her children Lori, Terri (Robert MacKenzie), Wayne (Tracy), Jamie, Barb (Allen)Toole.

 Also lovingly remembered by her grandchildren  whom she was so proud of Josh & Paul MacKenzie, Mark Weir, Hayley Toole, Tanner & Jackson McKenna, Hannah, Hayden & Evan McKenna, and her great grandchildren whom she was also so proud of  Shelbie, Memphis, Sierra, Logan, Thea, Jensen, Rylie, Ryker & Deklyn.

She is also survived by her sisters Christina MacKenzie and Sadie (Carter) Walsh and many nieces and nephews.

Predeceased by her parents, John and Sadie MacKenzie, brothers John, George & Danny, sisters Minerva Ferguson, Betty (in infancy) and numerous in-laws.

Betty will be remembered for her love and dedication to her family, a strong work ethic, endurance and determination.  Through her strength of will, she never let anything slow her down.  Even on her most painful days she persevered.  She always said,” I can do it myself, I have to keep moving or I won’t be able to.”

She was the toughest woman around, and we all knew it!

Mom is pain free and at peace now.

A special Thank You to Cathy Lanz for her love and support during this difficult time. 

Arrangements entrusted to the East Prince Funeral Home, 245 Pope Road, Summerside.
