In the early morning on Friday, April 23, 2021, Margita Larson peacefully passed away at Riverview Health Centre.
If you had the chance to meet Margita throughout her 73 years here on Earth, you likely would have felt her warm maternal nature, a friendly ear to listen to you, and if she could, probably slip in a word about her Meggy. She spent the latter part of her working years as the front desk receptionist at various hotels across Winnipeg and she was touched to be "work mom" to many. Her love of God carried her though many of life's difficult challenges and her perseverance reminds us that faith is a verb, not a noun.
As her beloved husband Darrell passed away in 2017, Margita's legacy of love is now passed to her daughter Megan, granddaughter Poppy, and to her many extended family and friends.
Heartfelt gratitude to Margita's medical team over the years and a special thank you for the outstanding team at Riverview Palliative Care for demonstrating an incredible level of empathy and compassion during her final days.
Due to the pandemic, no service will be held and the interment will take place in the Garden of Memories at Glen Lawn Funeral Home.
