January, 1947 - June, 2021

After a long overlooked diagnosis, our
beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great- grandmother, sister and friend left this world with her family at her side, while the rain softly fell from the clouds above to the earth below.
Two days before her death, the local Goldfinch that Margaret admired tried to get into the house at the window and then the door. The next day he sat at the window beside her bed pecking at the window bidding its final farewell.
Margaret started her nursing career at Children's Hospital in Winnipeg and then moved to various hospitals throughout the province as she accompanied her husband who was frequently transferred during his career. She went back to University with Sharon and got her Bachelor of Nursing
degree, proud to share her graduation day with her daughter as they got their degrees together.
Margaret loved gardening and flowers, feeding the birds and listening to them sing. A highlight was feeding and admiring many deer as they fed in our front yard while
residing in Birds Hill Park.
She leaves to mourn her husband Victor, daughter Sharon (Anderson), son Cory (Debi) and family, granddaughters, Kaitlyn (Roch), and Rebecca as well as great-granddaughters, Madelaine, Addison and Margot, who she was thrilled to get to meet and hold before her passing.
Also mourning her loss is our much loved Joanne, who was like a daughter to us and Margaret's sisters, Marion (Maryon) and
Karen and brother Bob (Darlene).
Margaret was predeceased by an infant
sister Kathy, brother Ivan, and her Dad and Mom, Russell and Freda Tanasychuk.
As per Margaret's wishes, she will be
cremated; there will be no service.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Margaret was always full of conversation when we’d meet at the Gun & Hobby Shows. We discussed everything, people, places & politics, mostly politics. She was a pleasant distraction from our intense hobby. I’ll miss her smiling face from across the hallway & wish her a peaceful journey. Our sincere condolences to Victor & the family James & Michele Hnatishin - Posted by: James Hnat (Friend) on: Jun 12, 2021

  • Our sincere condolences Victor to you and your family for your loss. Just know we are thinking about you at this sad time and hope this message will bring some peace and comfort in knowing that we care 🙏🏻❤️ - Posted by: Donald and Peggy Vigfusson (Friends) on: Jun 12, 2021

  • Dear Sharon and Anderson, We’re so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. But as 1 Thessalonians says “we grieve not as those who have no hope” . Parting is only for a short while and someday you will see her again and enjoy eternity together forever. But for now weep when you feel sad and know that Jesus weeps with you and will comfort you in your sorrow. Love W and E Struss - Posted by: Winston and Eileen struss (Friends) on: Jun 12, 2021
