At 3, Margaret immigrated to Canada with her family. They lived in southern Saskatchewan, then moved to Fairholme, Sask., to homestead with her dad’s brother. Both families later settled in Coaldale, Alta. In her youth, Margaret dedicated her life to Jesus, and this relationship sustained her. Margaret and John were a great team. She loved her grandchildren as much as she loved her children, and that love flowed back to her. Margaret and John travelled to the U.S., the Caribbean, Australia, and New Zealand. They enjoyed playing board and card games. When John died, Margaret lost her best friend, but she courageously carried on. For 10 tax seasons, she enjoyed working alongside her son Bill at his accounting firm. She continued to find adventure in Europe, California, and B.C. with her daughter Linda. Her nieces, nephews, and great-grandchildren were cherished. In her last year, Margaret moved to her daughter Janice’s Saskatchewan farm. Margaret was her family’s cheerleader.
