MARGARET CHARISON

Our family was blessed to share in the life of Margaret Charison. She touched our hearts and our lives with her unwavering love and goodness. It is with heavy hearts, that we announce her passing on August 30, 2021. She will be always loved, never forgotten, deeply missed and forever in our hearts.
Margaret was born on November 21, 1924 in Madison, Saskatchewan. She was the oldest daughter of Donald and Barbara Fines of Gunton, Manitoba. She always remained close with her ten sisters and brothers and their extended families and those family bonds remain strong to this day. She is survived by her three sisters, Zetta, Ramona and Flora and numerous nieces and nephews that she loved so dearly.
Margaret was happy to spend her entire life in the Gunton-Teulon area. She was devoted to her husband Stan and their children, Sandy Skinner (John), Sherry Green (Terry), Linda Stock (Fred) and Curtis Charison (June). Being a mom was the most important thing in the world to her, and her children always knew how very fortunate they were to have had her love and tender care throughout their lives. Then came her pride and joy, her ten grandchildren, Jennifer (Jason), Rod (Kim), Scott (Angele), Sherry (Mike), Richard (Vilay), Kelly (Maria), Kimberly, Tim, Cameron (Whytnie) and Jodie (Nicole), who were the light of her life and brought her endless fun times and happiness. They presented her with the gift of 16 great-grandchildren, McKay, Matheson, Lachlan, Lilly, Olivia, Abigail, Brianne, Austin, Liam, Avery, Kiana, Mattea, Chloe, Ryan, Brady and Hadley whom she adored.
Margaret was very well loved and respected in the community, especially by her close friends, many of whom she treasured from her early childhood days. She was an avid gardener, active in curling and golf, she enjoyed playing cribbage and she never failed to support and contribute to any local event happening at the time. Her kindness to all and her generous spirit touched many people along the way. One of her favourite expressions was "When you do something for someone else, you make two people happy." The example she set, inspired a lot of people to do their best to help others in a selfless and caring manner.
Special thanks to her physician Dr. K. Graham and the medical staff at Betel Home in Gimli.
Margaret requested that there be no funeral service, but a private family gathering to be held when the time is appropriate. Anyone wishing to send an on-line tribute or to make a donation to any charity of your choice in her honour is welcome to do so.
