Margaret Louise PETKAU

(nee Zacharias)

April 22, 1933 – Nov. 11, 2010

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden, but peaceful passing of Margaret Louise Petkau at Abbotsford Regional Hospital on November 11, 2010.

Margaret was born on April 22, 1933 in Rosthern, Saskatchewan of a family of five.

She is survived by her husband Ed Petkau, her three sons Barry (Jean) Petkau, Don (Rose) Petkau, Dale (Linda) Petkau, her two daughters Connie (Ken) White and Starla (Domenic) Valentini, twelve grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren, sister Gertrude Ruchotzke, brother Art (Edna) Zacharias, and brother-in-law Elmer Wall.

Margaret was very proud of all her children and so happy to see her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She worked very hard her whole life and after retirement she started crocheting many beautiful dollies. She was an avid bingo player, but was always that one number away.

Margaret is predeceased by her parents Aron and Tina Zacharias, brother Abe Zacharias and sister Hilda Wall.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
