ELIZABETH MARGARET THOMPSON


Peacefully with family by her side, Margaret passed away at West Park Manor Nursing home on Tuesday, April 12, 2022 at the age of 82 years.
She will be lovingly remembered by her husband Russell Thompson of 58 years; children, Kevin, Jennifer and Colleen (Dan).
Margaret was predeceased by her mother and father, Elizabeth and John Dickie.
Mom was born in St. Boniface, Manitoba on July 2, 1939, where she resided while growing up. She graduated high school at St. Boniface College and decided to pursue her nursing degree at the St. Boniface Hospital nursing residence. She received her RN nursing degree in 1960. Russell and Margaret dated shortly after her nursing residence and married May 16, 1964. They then purchased their first home on Almond Bay in Windsor Park. In 1972, they made the move to Westwood, St. James, where she began a new nursing position with Combined Care at the Grace Hospital. Mom always handled every baby born just as if it was her own! She continued her nursing career with Grace Hospital until her retirement.
Margaret's most favourite place to be was at the family cottage at White Lake in the Whiteshell. She loved the water (once she finally got in!), lawn darts, music, dancing and singin' at the bonfire and all the parties shared with many family, neighbours and close friends over the years. She was also known for her craftiness, or as we called her "Martha" talents! She also had an extreme love for Christmas and would always have the most beautiful real tree, but of course, no one ever believed it was real! She will always be remembered for her kind, beautiful smile, as we always hear so many say, even after just meeting her for the first time. She was always smiling and just like her nursing, she wore her heart on her sleeve! If anyone ever needed anything, mom was there! Her love was never ending.
May you now rest easy and be in your happy place once again. We will love you always and forever!! The bagpipes are playing just for you! xoxo
The family would like to also thank everyone at West Park Manor Nursing home over the past 10 years for all their care and love for Margaret.
A private gathering will be held at a later date with family.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Alzheimer's society of Manitoba.

  • We were so sad to hear about Margaret Colleen. I just remember how much fun Laurel and I had when we went to the Canadian Championships in Edmonton in 1986 with you and your mom. I remember her designer cup cakes that she brought for all of us on the bus. She was such a beautiful person and one amazing lady. She certainly will be missed.
