With saddened hearts we announce the death of Margaret, beloved wife to Doug. Margaret passed away at the Elk Valley Hospital on Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at the age of 72. Margaret Fay Roberts was born in Fernie on January 6, 1941 to parents Gordon and Annie.
Margaret (Maggie Muggins) will be lovingly remembered for her kind and loving heart, her silly giggle, and her infamous “Gee Wilickers!” She thoroughly enjoyed crafting and always had some kind of project on the go. Margaret eagerly anticipated her weekly trips to Rocky Mountain Village for craft day and lunch with friends. At home by her side you would always find Fancy, and either her crochet needles or the newest puzzle book. Margaret loved her gardens and her houseplants; boasting beautiful Christmas cactus and geraniums she managed to grow all year round. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother who will be forever remembered. Rest in Peace Mom. We Love You!
