Jocelyn Nancy MacGregor
1931 - 2023

Jocelyn Nancy MacGregor was born in Gretna, Manitoba in cold January day in 1931.

She was the last surviving family member of five siblings and parents, Albert and Elsie Pieper. All predeceased members were Bud Pieper (Arlie), Irene West(Ken),Peg Bond,Jack Pieper and Daphne Hadley. Jack Pieper served during WW2 and rests in Canadian memorial grounds in France. Jocelyn’s husband Philip predeceased in 2017. She is survived by her children Lark Willms, Pegi MacGregor, Steve MacGregor(Sheila), Jim MacGregor(Susan) Debra Paulson (adopted by Gods will) and 8 grandchildren Julie Brooks(Steve), Christie Khan, Mark Willms(Kayleen), Danielle Shetler(Adam), Rachel Hicks(Brady), Alisha McFetridge (Sean), Seth MacGregor and Jack MacGregor and 11 great grandchildren, Kenzie,Nash,Eva,Ben,Jesse,Nixon,Lexie,Austin,Lucas,Hudson and Aila. Jocelyn’s nieces, Jacqui,Sheila,Elsie-lyn,Ruthie(predeceased in 2022),Linda and nephews Chris,Steve,Greg,Clayton,and Randy.

This family was the heart of Jocelyn MacGregor and her purpose was loving, supporting, encouraging and giving hope in the Lord Jesus Christ. She always displayed her natural gracefulness and elegance with humility. As a result she touched many lives and drew them into her love and encouragement circle. She was always resourceful and knew how to make pathway through many situations beginning training in home economics, banking, dairy farming, orchardist, tourist industry, newspaper circulation manager, early education training, enumerator, retail sales, teaching Bible Studies and mentorship. She was an active member of Kelowna Bible Chapel and cherished her time and support throughout the years. Her spirit lives through the members of her immediate and extended family and with much hope we look forward to re-uniting again as the Lord Jesus has promised. We are so blessed to have her as mom, aunt, grandmother,GG, and friend. You will be truly missed.
