Margaret BEHM

Margaret (Maggie) Louise Behm

November 27, 1945 – June 19, 2017


Left us peacefully on the 19th of June, 2017, at the end of a day, and surrounded by family and friends. Maggie was born 27th November, 1945, to Barbara and Leslie Rattcliff in Bromley, England. She became a Registered Nurse and worked in England where she met her husband, Sidney Behm. Married in 1968, they moved to Waltringern, West Germany before immigrating back to Canada in 1972 and initially settling in Chilliwack, BC. Never one to sit idle, Mom gained experience working in BC, Alberta and Manitoba, as well as achieving her Bachelor of Nursing Science from the U of A, all while raising three adoring sons, Michael, Lincoln and Colin. Following retirement, she and Sidney returned to Chilliwack in 2001 to share their later years. She is survived by her husband of 48 years, 3 sons, her sister, Mary Keefe, and her brother, David Rattcliff. Maggie requested a Celebration of Life with family and friends to be held at the family home. The service will be held in August, with date to be confirmed. Any donations to be made to the Chilliwack Hospice Society, who gently assisted in care during Maggie’s final weeks.
