FERGUSON, Makaela Rose September 27, 2000 - September 23, 2021 It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Makaela on September 23th, at the age of 20 in Vancouver, BC. Makaela was born in Richmond, BC, on September 27th, 2000 to her loving birth Mother Aengie Ferguson. A mutual decision was made when Makaela was 1 year old to be adopted by her grandparents whom she lived with for her entire childhood and post high school graduation from South Delta Secondary in 2018. Makaela had a passion for music and attended singing classes for a number of years. She would often be heard in her house singing her favorite songs and working on what she had learned in class. Eventually Makaela developed a desire to attend the John Casablanca Institute in Vancouver, BC. She moved to Vancouver once she was accepted and here, she studied Makeup Artistry and graduated in the Spring of 2021. Soon after graduation she began volunteering on film sets using her new skill sets. Makaela often spoke about wanting to get married and have children. She also wanted to travel and see the world. It is these dreams, that make this reality extremely hard. At the time of her adoption, she was very young, but we want Makaela to know that her family loves her very much. She has parents, brothers, family and friends that love her and will miss her deeply. Makela is survived by her parents Richard and Cheryl Ferguson, her birth mother Aengie Ferguson, Bryce and Kelsey Ferguson (Everett), Casey and Jennifer Ferguson (Jack, Spencer), Connor and Brittany Ferguson, as well as many loving Uncles, Aunts, Cousins, and Friends that will miss her greatly. Makaela was predeceased by her Grandparents Edward and Violet Link (Oma and Opa), as well as Ross and Katie Ferguson (Dado and Tutu). With this in mind, it comes with some comfort that they are together in heaven. Makeala will be missed tremendously. She was and is loved, more than she could know. There will be a celebration of Makaela's life on October 29th at 2:00pm, at South Delta Baptist Church at 1988 56 Street, in Tsawwassen, BC.
