In Loving Memory (2010-2023) ~
It is with unparalleled sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved Paige, who left us unexpectedly in her sleep while camping at the family RV on October 7, 2023, in Malakwa BC. Paige had a love and passion for camping, an activity she would often request.
Paige was a remarkable young lady, full of love and life, despite the challenges she faced over her life. Paige was born with Down Syndrome and had heart surgery at just 6 months old.
Paige was an inspiration, embracing her unique journey and achievements, big or small. She had an insatiable love for icy cold beverages (including going to "bucks' for a strawberry frappe) Chinese food, chicken wings and fishy crackers.
Paige's hilarious humour earned her an award at school, and her presence taught us love, acceptance, and the joy of sharing a meal. Her determination and pride in herself served as a lesson to us all, reminding us to embrace life with unwavering courage.
She is survived by her loving mother, Christina Keogh, and chosen father, Jon Mackintosh both of whom cherished her every day.
Adoring grandparents Teresa and Jerry Keogh of Calgary Alberta, Edith, and Dave Mackintosh of Nakusp BC, Auntie Connie Keogh from Calgary, AB, Uncle Eric (Darcie) from Nanaimo, BC, Auntie Fawn from Nakusp , B.C., Cousin Hayden and many other aunties, uncles, cousins and family that loved her dearly.
She had a special place for her beloved cats Elsa and Catalina.
"Paigester, you were loved. You will be loved. Forever. Forever and ever. We will love you forever".
