Margaret FISHER

Shirley Diane Fisher (Keast)

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Margaret Fisher, our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend. Margaret passed away surrounded by her family, December 17, 2012 in Abbotsford, BC.

Margaret was born on July 14, 1936 in Glasgow, Scotland. She immigrated with her family to Canada in the early 1970’s when her family moved to Canmore, Alberta. Cherished wife of Robert Fisher, Margaret will always be lovingly remembered by her 6 children, Derek (Tara), Fiona, Mark (Sandra), Colin (Nicole), Jean (Brian), Russell; 2 brothers, John and Ian; 2 sisters, Mary and Hannah; 5 grandchildren; 2 great-granddaughters; and many other family and friends.

Margaret was predeceased by her grandson, Grayson; her sister, Nancy; and her brother, Bill.

Mom will be forever remembered for her love and dedication towards her family, for her love of life and whirlwind spirit.

No formal funeral service will be held at this time. A gathering in her memory may take place in spring 2013. A future announcement will be put in the paper when a location, time and date have been decided.

Margaret will be laid to rest in her final resting place with her parents and sister in Canmore, Alberta.

A heartfelt thank you to all the staff at Fraser Hope Lodge in Hope, BC and to Menno Home in Abbotsford, BC for everything you’ve done for mom and our family during this difficult time.
