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.
