Margaret Nesdoly

August 15, 1923 - July 25, 2013


On Thursday July 25, 2013, long-time Osoyoos resident Margaret Nesdoly passed away peacefully at Mariposa Gardens at the age of 89 years. She was predeceased by her brother Frank Balogh in 1984 and nephew Dennis Balogh in 2010. Margaret is loving remembered by her daughter Carol; son Mark (Diane); grandchildren Jennifer, Nina and Kevin; brother Paul (Donna) Balogh; sister Irene Wood; sister-in-law Helen Balogh and nephews Frank, Ron, Brad, Greg and Wayne.

Margaret was born and raised in Kipling, SK. After graduation, she attended Moose Jaw Normal School and then began her teaching career in 1944 in a one room school house in Minton, SK. In 1948, she followed her family to their new home in Osoyoos. She worked for George McPherson at the IGA store on Main Street and then moved on to Balogh Electric in 1962 where she stayed until she retired.

She loved to visit new places and travelled extensively all over the world.

Margaret was also deeply involved in her community. She was a member of the Order of the Royal Purple #240 since 1961, a chartered member of the Osoyoos Golf and Country Club, volunteered with the Osoyoos Arthritis Society, the BC Winter Games in 1985 and welcomed guests at the Osoyoos Museum. Margaret also loved tending to her beautiful flowers.

A celebration of Margaret’s life will be held at 2:30 P.M. Thursday August 15th, 2013 at the Osoyoos Elks Hall. 

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made: In Memory of Margaret Nesdoly: Elks & Royal Purple Fund For Children.
