Margaret, Lavina Steabner

It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the death, on May 12, 2012, of Margaret Lavina Steabner, of Fernie, B.C. Margaret passed away at the Elk Valley Hospital. She was born near Hawarden, Saskatchewan on September 22, 1922.

Margaret is lovingly survived by her daughter-in-law Cindy and grandsons Glenn (Barb), Darren (Arista) and great grandchildren Terence and Kyle.

Margaret was predeceased by her husband Claude in 1986 and sons Terry in 2011 and Norman in 1976.

Margaret spent the first part of her life grain farming near Hawarden and then moved to Saskatoon in 1972. She later retired to Victoria where she happily spent hours in her flower gardens. She enjoyed large family gatherings, sewing, square dancing, watching all sports and playing cards with her friends. In 2011 she moved to Fernie to be closer to her family.

She truly lived life to its fullest and leaves family and friends with a legacy of memories. She will be forever loved and never forgotten by all who knew her.

At Margaret’s request there will be no service. A private family remembrance will be held in Victoria.
