MARGARET ISABEL CHESTER (nee SHUMWAY) Margaret Chester passed away on September 17, 2007 at 101 years of age. She was born in Winnipeg on July 21, 1906 to Siri and Harris Shumway. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Frank; her dearly loved son Ronald and her sister Evelyn Audrain. She is survived by her sister Norma McManus of South Bend, Indiana and Dorothy Jordan of Winnipeg. Also by her daughter-in-law, Iris Chester, her grandsons, Frank Chester (Theresa), Christopher and Gordon (Lois) Chester and by her granddaughter Lori Patrick (David) and her well loved great-grandsons, Scott and Graeme Patrick, also by numerous nieces and nephews, all of whom she cherished. Marg was a 1928 graduate of the Winnipeg General Hospital and in 1930 she and Frank were married. She was a very caring person, willing to help anyone in need of a helping hand, and she had a wealth of friends. Marg was bright, cheerful and witty and we all loved her dearly. She was a member of the Anglican Church and a lifetime member of St. Johns Guild of the Children's Hospital. Our memories of Marg will always be treasures of our hearts, and to live in the hearts of those we leave behind is not to die. Memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 22 at 10:00 a.m. at Thomson In the Park Funeral Home, 1291 McGillivray Blvd. If friends so desire contributions to her memory may be made to a charity of your choice.
