Margaret SWAIN

SWAIN, Margaret

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing away of our mother, Margaret Rose Swain on November 17th, 2007 from ALS.

Our mother was born in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan August 06, 1943. She will always be remembered by her long time companion Leon Palma, sons Mark, Perry (Rose) and Michael and daughter, Tracy, daughter in-law Denise and her grandchildren; Jason and Kirsten, Perry and Brent, Peyton, Caymen and Cole, Courtney and Steven.

Moving from the prairies to Surrey in 1969, she worked hard for many years to raise four children. The last 15 of which was for the Surrey School district, which she retired in 2003 to spend time in her garden, nurture her grandchildren and love us all.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, ALS entered her life in 2005 and forever changed it. The inner strength and outward grace she constantly showed during the progression of this disease was inspiring to us all. We will always remember. In lieu of any flowers, please provide a donation to the ALS Society of Canada. (

A small memorial service with family and friends will be held at the Valley View Memorial Gardens, 14644 – 72nd Avenue, Surrey commencing at 2:00pm, November the 28th.

We will miss your love, dearly mom.
