MARGARET ELIZABETH TWEEDIE
(nee RUSSELL)

In loving memory of Margaret Tweedie, aged 93, who was promoted to glory peacefully at Rock Lake Personal Care Home in Pilot Mound, MB on May 15, 2020.
Margaret was predeceased by her husband Robert (Bob) Tweedie who died in September of 1982. She is survived by her children, Graeme Tweedie (Anne) of Halifax, NS, Marilyn Kinsman (Harvey) of Morden, MB and Janet Tweedie of Grand Marais, MB; four grandchildren, Drew Kinsman of Brandon, Mitchell Kinsman of Winnipeg, Erin Foster (Greg) and Allison Tweedie both of Halifax, NS and two great-grandchildren, Audrey and Henry Foster.
Margaret was born in Lethbridge, AB on June 13, 1926. After completing her schooling, she moved to Winnipeg where she trained as a RN at the Grace General Hospital. She graduated in 1950 and was married later that same year. Margaret and Bob remained in Winnipeg living in the St. James and Westwood areas to raise their young family. She also worked at the Deer Lodge Hospital during that time. They were both active members of the Salvation Army, worshiping at the St. James Corps. In 1963, the family moved to La Riviere, MB and later to Pilot Mound, MB in 1971. She worked for many years as a nurse at the Pilot Mound Hospital; finishing up her career at the Rock Lake Personal Care Home. Upon retirement in 1988, Margaret moved to Winnipeg and remained there until 2013, when she moved to the Legion House in Morden, MB. In 2017, Margaret moved back as a resident to Rock Lake Personal Care Home where she lived comfortably with her favourite roomate, her TV (actual quote from Mom), maintaining her sharp mind by completing the crossword puzzle daily. Special thanks to the excellent caregivers there, making her final years the best they could be.
In accordance with Margaret's wishes, her ashes will be interred at the Greenwood Cemetery in Pilot Mound alongside Bob, at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated to the Rock Lake Personal Care Home or the Canadian Diabetes Society.
