Margaret Louise Kincaid McInnes

June 5, 1948-June 7, 2016

Margaret Louise Kincaid McInnes, 68, died June 7, 2016, after a 5 -year battle with cancer, with family at her side. “She had a strong Christian faith, and is now at peace with our Lord and Savior in heaven,” her family said.

Margaret was a long-time resident of Seldovia, Alaska, starting in 1956 when her family moved up from Washington so her dad could take a maintenance job at a local cannery. In Seldovia she went to school, married and eventually raised her own family of four children. She enjoyed the scenery and the people and felt lucky to live in such a beautiful place. She served as Postmaster for more than 20 years and received multiple awards from the Postal Service during her time at the Post Office.

Family was very important to Margaret and she loved spending time with her children and her grandchildren. Before her death, she celebrated 47 years of marriage to her husband, Walter McInnes. Margaret also loved animals and was never without a pet or two.

Margaret was an avid crafter and doll maker. She was always working on a new craft project, and her creations brought joy to many children and adults alike. She enjoyed spending time with other crafting friends and continued sewing, knitting, and creating until her last days. When not crafting, she enjoyed movies, science fiction, clocks, stamp collecting, computers, genealogy, card games and board games. She also enjoyed outdoor activities like gardening, berry picking, picnics and walking local trails.

She is preceded in death by her father, Robert Roy Kincaid; her mother, Eloise Kincaid, and her brother, Robert “Bobby” Kincaid.

She is survived by her brother, Jim Kincaid; her spouse, Walter McInnes; her children, Rebecca Weldy, Rosanna McInnes, Kristina Seryozhenkov, and John McInnes, and also her 11 grandchildren.
