With sadness, the Chalifoux family announces the passing of Margaret Chalifoux on Saturday, December 12, 2015.
Margaret will be lovingly remembered by her husband Paul–semicolon– and her children, Rob, Michelle, and Dan (Shayla). She was predeceased by her son Richard.
Margaret was born on January 3, 1945 in Edmonton, Alberta to Lois and Lawrence McPhee. She and her brother Lawrence were raised in Edmonton. In 1962, she met Paul Chalifoux on a blind date. They fell in love, got married on Boxing Day in 1966, and settled in St. Albert where they raised their family.
Margaret was a devoted volunteer in the community. She was very active with Baseball Alberta and the St. Albert Minor Baseball Association and was honoured in 1994 with the OV Award of Merit for her contribution to the development of amateur baseball in Alberta. She and Paul were jointly recognized as Volunteer Citizens of the Year in 1987–semicolon– and in 2013 the City of St. Albert awarded Margaret and Paul a Community Recognition award in the Citizenship-Community Builder category.
A service to recognize the life and achievements of Margaret will be held on Friday, December 18, 2015 at 1:30 pm, at Holy Family Parish, 75 Poirier Avenue, St. Albert, Alberta.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Margaret’s name may be made to the St Albert Community Foundation, PO. Box 65068, St. Albert, AB T8N 5Y3, or online at www.sacf.ca.
