Margaret Munro

June 15, 1918 - April 28, 2010


It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Margaret Maria Munro of Edson, AB on April 28, 2010 in the South Okanagan General Hospital in Oliver at the age of 91. She was born in Dodsland SK, June 15, 1918, and came to Alberta at age eight. Margaret and Hugh were married in 1935 and raised seven children in the Edson, AB area.
Her daughter Jean James and her husband Mel of Osoyoos survive Margaret.
as well as five sons in Alberta; Stan (Ellen) Munro of Edson, AB; Hugh (Joyce) Calgary, AB; Donald (Linda) of Red Deer, AB; Thomas (Shelly) of Edson, and Edwin (Jeanie) of Edson, AB; as well as twenty-one grandchildren, thirty-two great-grandchildren, five great-great grandchildren, and another four on the way. Her home was a haven for many that did not have one. Always food, shelter and comforting words were available in her home.
Predeceased by her husband Hugh in 1998, and son Robert (Karen) in February of this year, Margaret was the last of her generation left in the family having predeceased by her last sister-in-law in February of 2010.
Margaret’s great faith gave her peace and contentment that many never reach and because of that faith she had the ability to adapt to whatever life handed out. A warm hearted woman whose willingness to listen to everyone and her caring attitude made her a great neighbor and a wonderful mother. Margaret filled many hearts with joy and will sadly missed by all who knew her. Funeral service will be in Edson, Alta, May 4, 2010 at the Legion hall.
A memorial service will be held at the Valley Congregational Church at a later date. Please consider donations to Desert Valley Hospice Society, PO Box 1261, Oliver, BC V0H 1T0.
