On November 29, 2012 Margaret passed away at the age of 91 years.
Left to cherish her memory are her loving daughters, Linda (Bow) Maasz, Diane (John) Pollard, Barbara (Brian) Tobin, Patricia (John) Marsh and Karen (Christopher) Price–semicolon– grandchildren, David, McKenzie, Madeleine, Ian, Aidan and Veronica–semicolon– great-granddaughter, Nyla–semicolon– siblings, Mary, Dorothy (Wilfred), George (Mary Ann) and Jean (Jim)–semicolon– sister-in-law, Loretta–semicolon– and many nieces, nephews and friends.
She was predeceased by John, her husband of 60 years–semicolon– grandson, Eric–semicolon– siblings, Helen and Jim–semicolon– brothers-in-law, John and Norman.
People were more important than things to Margaret. Her life with John, her daughters and their families meant everything to her, as did spending time with sisters and friends, and being a neighbour on call.
She will be remembered for her generous spirit and caring nature. Everyone was always welcomed into her home with open arms and a cup of tea. The lucky ones might have even been treated to fresh buns straight from the oven.
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 am on Saturday, December 8, 2012 at St. Albert Parish, 7 St. Vital Avenue, St. Albert, AB.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Arthritis Society – Alberta & NWT, Division, #300, 1301-8 Street SW, Calgary, AB, T2R 1B7 or to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Alberta, 10985 124 Street NW, Edmonton, AB, T5M 0H9.
