MARGUERITE ZIMMER (nee SWAN) It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of Marguerite Zimmer on November 7, 2012, at Grandview Hospital. Mom was born on July 9, 1931, at Islay, AB and married Dad on November 14, 1952. They were inseparable, spending the last sixty years raising a family, working side by side on the farm and then operating the barbershop / poolroom in Grandview. Mom enjoyed their vacations to Hawaii, Mexico, Vegas and the East Coast. She loved her children and always enjoyed the family gatherings. Mom took great pride in being a Volunteer Ambulance Attendant for eight years because it allowed her the opportunity to help others in need. In later years gardening and tending her flowers brought her joy. There was always room in her garden for one more flower. Marguerite was predeceased by her parents Tony and Hedwig Swan; and brothers Charlie and Harold Swan. Surviving to mourn Marguerite's death is her husband of sixty years, Bert Zimmer of Grandview; three children, Melfort (Audrey) Zimmer of Dauphin, Sheri Zimmer (Larry Schaab) of Oak Bank, and Darlene Will of Medicine Hat; as well as seven grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren. Marguerite's Funeral Service will be held Monday, November 12, 2012, at 11:00 a.m. from Grandview United Church with Pastor Ron Hagglund officiating and interment to follow at Bethany South Cemetery, Inglis, MB. Mom you have earned your rest but we will miss you. Memorial Gifts may be given to Grandview Community Foundation (for Grandview Personal Care Home), Box 238, Grandview, MB R0L 0Y0 or a charity of one's choice. Notes of condolence may be sent to the family by visiting Nairn - Chyz Funeral Home Entrusted With Arrangements 204 937-2111
