September 26, 1926 to October 20, 2009
Mom left us on Tuesday, October 20, at the age of 83.
She was born in New Westminster, but her parents, E. James Hogg and Emily (Simpson) Hogg, raised their family on the Sumas Prairie. It was at Chilliwack High that Margaret met Eldon and they married in 1948, the same year that she graduated from the St. Paul’s Hospital nursing program. During their 49 years of marriage, they lived in Vancouver, Burnaby and Surrey. Margaret was widowed in 1997, and spent the last years of her life in Maple Ridge with a view of the mountains.
She will be forever missed by her children, Sandra (Margaret) and Brent (Petra) and by her grandchildren, Tonya and Joel.
At the request of Margaret there will be no service, please celebrate her life in your own way, remembering her wonderful sense of humour and generous heart.
Special thanks to the nurses at McKenney Creek Hospice and the staff at Willow Manor. Family and friends are invited to make a donation in Margy’s name to McKenney Creek Hospice, #100 – 11762 Laity Street, Maple Ridge, B.C. V2X 5A3.
