It is with deep sadness that we annouce the passing of our Mother, (Marg) Marguerite Elizabeth Paul Bartel. Our mother was born in Melfort, Saskatchewan on July 18, 1918. She had 1 sister and 7 brothers, all of whom have pre-deceased her. She married our father, Gerald Paul in November 1940. They lived in the Beatty & Melfort, Saskatchewan area for several years. They had 5 children; Jim Paul (Cheryl), Judy Froc (Russ), Ken Paul (Shirley), Wilma Kai (John) & Wendell Paul (Shirley). Sadly Gerald passed away in 1969. In 1984, mom remarried to Herb Bartel & they lived in BC. Herb passed away November 2006. Mom is survived by her children, 15 grandchildren & several great-grandchildren. She was a CWL (Catholic Women’s League) member for over 40 years. She helped with several bazars, teas & bake sales. She loved to knit, sew & read, and continued these hobbies to the end of her life.

Her final resting place will be in Melfort, Sask. next to our father. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation. We wish to thank all the staff including Dr. Dodds at the Chilliwack General Hospital for the wonderful care given to our mother over the last few weeks.
