Obituary of MacKenzie Breen

MacKenzie Lynn Breen of Florida, NY, left us too soon on Sunday, October 29, 2023. She was 30 years old.


MacKenzie was born on October 27, 1993 in Warwick, NY, the daughter of Patricia J. Watch and David F. Breen.


MacKenzie was the bright light in any room, bringing joy and laughter wherever she went with her glowing smile and contagious laugh. Whether she was working hard plowing fields and harvesting sod on the farm, rebuilding her GMC truck or lovingly nurturing her baby girl, Alice, she proudly put her whole heart and soul into everything she did. MacKenzie found strength and courage in the love of her family. It was everything she had to look forward to and helped her through her journey. She cherished every moment spent with them, creating memories that will forever be etched in their hearts. MacKenzie’s memory will live on through the love she shared with family and friends.


She was predeceased by her adored grandparents Frank and Bette Breen and grandfather Jim Watch. MacKenzie is survived by her beautiful daughter Alice de la luz Breen and Alice’s father Diego de le luz of Middletown, NY; loving mother Patricia J. Watch of Shallotte, NC; best friend and father David F. Breen and his wife Jung AH Breen of Florida, NY; grandmother Susan Watch of Calabash, NC; brother Michael April of Dumont, NJ and a host of Aunts, Uncles, cousins, and friends with whom some of her favorite memories were made.
