Rooted in joyful delight, steadfast faith, and sacrificial love, Margaret took pleasure in growing her garden, laughing with friends young and old, sharing a glass of wine, creating meals and treats from scratch, seeking a new travel destination, being her kids' biggest fan, enjoying family dinners and peaceful, relaxing times at Shawnigan. She saw the world as a garden, and this thoughtful, third-generation Victorian cultivated growth in her home and in the classroom as an Educational Assistant in the Cowichan and Victoria School Districts.
Margaret will be deeply missed by her loving husband of 38 years, Angus; daughter Christina (Chris) Rempel; son Dave (Cheryl Tromp); brother Arthur (Dianne); sister-in-law Linda; and close, extended family and long-time friends. She is predeceased by parents Cliff and Jocelyn Joyce and brother Rick.
A Celebration of Life will be held October 11, 2014, 1 p.m., at the Victoria Church of the Nazarene. While she loved flowers, please consider a lasting legacy donated in Marg's name to the Red Cross, Victoria Hospice, or the Canadian Cancer Society.
Sincere gratitude and appreciation for the care provided by Dr. Vanessa Bernstein, Dr. Christine Jones, Dr. Geoff Inman, Community Care Nurses and Beacon Home Support Staff. To leave a condolence, please visit www.earthsoption.com
