WILLIAMSON, Margaret passed away peacefully on Friday, February 5, 2016 at the age of 95 after a 10 year battle with Diabetes.
Predeceased by her husband Les after 69 years of marriage; three brothers, and one sister.She will be missed by daughter Elaine (George); granddaughter Michelle (Mikkel) as well as many nieces and nephews; and dear friends Anne, Ernie and Gertie.
She was born in the interior of BC in 1920 and lived in Vancouver for a short time before moving to the Copper Mountain near Princton. In 1957 the family moved to Port Alberni. Mom worked at Jowsey’s before it was a furniture store and Rexall Drugs. She loved her garden, especially the flowers and enjoyed baking – she made the best pies and tarts. Both Les and Margaret shared a passion for Big Band music and would be at every dance at the Italian hall, Octoberfest or McMorans in Victoria. They also took trips to Hawaii, Mexico, an Alaska cruise and bus tours to Reno as well as many road trips to the interior. Mom spent 6 ¾ months living at Qualicum Manor and was so very happy there.
A private family service will be held at a later date. The family would like to express their heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the amazing staff at Qualicum Manor for their care and compassion. Mom so enjoyed the beautiful gardens there. Also, a thank you to Dr. Biglow and Dr Meyer. Also a big thank you to Chapel of Memories for all your help, your kindness and to Margaret and Taylor for getting Mom all dressed up to meet up with Dad for one more dance. You are at peace now, Mom. No more needles and give Dad one big hug from Michelle and me.
“…I know we’ll meet again some sunny day….”
