On November 7, 2020, Margaret Jane Kipling passed peacefully at Riverview Health Centre, at the age of 74, with her children, Mona Ardelle and Clint Darren, by her side.
Margaret was born on February 24, 1946 in Peguis, Manitoba. Margaret was predeceased by her parents, George Edward and Mary Bella Kipling, her brothers, Norman, John, Howard, and Ricky and sisters, Jean, Linda, and Beverly.
She will be lovingly remembered by her son-in-law, Harold (Sonny) Cochrane, her sisters, Shirley, and Diane, her brothers, Clifford, Leonard, Wallace, and Bernall, and family and friends.
Margaret graduated from St. Boniface School of Nursing on February 14, 1981 at the age of 35. After graduating as a LPN, she worked at the Winnipeg Municipal Hospital, St. Amant Centre, then Central Park Lodge until she became ill with an auto-immune illness and retired in 2001.
Margaret didn't have much in terms of wealth, but she was rich with love, friends and family. Whether you were a stranger or her closest friend, Margaret was the kind of person who treated everyone with respect and kindness. She left an unforgettable impact on everyone she met and taught her grandchildren to be kind and caring to all.
Margaret's pride and joy were her three grandchildren, Brooke, Reyce and Halle. They will miss her warm hugs and loud kisses. Some of their fondest memories are her stories, making jello and bannock and watching Dateline with her. She was the best grandma.
Cremation has taken place. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a Celebration of Life will be held in the spring with interment taking place at Elmwood Cemetery.
The family wishes to extend their heartfelt gratitude to Cindy Allan and Dr. Kelly Kaita for their care of Margaret. Thank you to Dr. Ted and the palliative care staff at Riverview Health Centre.
In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to the Winnipeg Cheer Board, The Humane Society or a charity of choice.
