Tuddenham-Margaret Roberta (Yeatman)
April 17, 1929 – Sept 17, 2013
Margaret Tuddenham passed away peacefully with her family at her side at Sunshine Manor in Campbell River on September 17th 2013. Margaret was predeceased by her loving husband Stanley and daughter Teresa who were the center of her life, her parents Robert and Margaret Yeatman, sister Lorraine Idiens and brothers-in-law Ted Idiens and Art Wickman. She is survived by her sister Doreen Wickman, nieces Bonnie Fair (Norman) and Corinne Mergaert, nephews Glenn Mills (Mandy) and Richard Idiens, son-in-law Jim Paterson and numerous great nieces and nephews.
Margaret was born in Campbell River on April 17th 1929 to Robert and Margaret Yeatman. She was the grand-daughter of Fred and Emma Yeatman who arrived and settled on Quadra Island in the late 1800’s. The family is recognized as one of the first pioneering families of the area.
As newlyweds Margaret and Stan moved to Alberta always knowing they would one day return to retire on Vancouver Island. Many happy retirement years were spent on their farm in Saanichton where they both were actively involved on their daugher Teresa’s veterinary practice.
The family wishes to thank Lee and her devoted staff at Sunshine Manor, Margaret’s home for the last four years, for their love and care, Dr. DeBruin for his kindness and support and great-niece Tanza for always being there when Auntie Margie needed her.
“She will remain forever in our hearts”
