MARGARET S. McLEAN (nee HALL) Peacefully, on January 17, 2000 at Concordia Hospital, Marnie/Margo, as she was known to her dearest and closest family and friends, left us after a long and courageous fight. Marnie was predeceased by her parents, Andrew and Lily Hall; her husband, John; her son, Douglas; her brothers, Robert and Andrew; her brother-in-law, Dr. William B. McTavish and her sister-in-law, Christina McLean. Marnie is survived by her daughter, Marilyn (Gene) and her two dear grandsons, John and Michael; her sister, Ann (Gordon) her sister-in-law, Margaret E. McLean; her devoted nephews and their families, Jamie (Wanda), John (Donna), Gordon (Cheryl) and Bill and other family members. Also left to mourn are her many loving and caring friends. Marnie grew up in Elmwood and attended Lord Selkirk, United College, University of Winnipeg and obtained her Masters in Social Work from the University of Manitoba. Marnie began her career in Social Work in Victoria, B.C., returning to Winnipeg to the Adoptions Branch of the Provincial Government and then with the Federal Government at Deer Lodge Hospital. Marnie was a warm and caring person with a wonderful sense of humour. The friendships she made over the years in Victoria and Winnipeg were certainly cherished as she returned each winter to her friends in Victoria. One of Marnies greatest joys was the family cottage at Victoria Beach, where she spent many summers enjoying her flower gardens and birds and many walks with friends. Marnie was a long time devoted member of Knox United Church. Cremation has taken place. A Memorial Service celebrating her wonderful life will be held on Friday, January 21, at 11:00 a.m. at Knox United Church, 400 Edmonton Street, with The Reverend Dr. Bruce Bailey and The Reverend Donald I. Wilson officiating. In lieu of flowers, contributions to Marnies memory may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 193 Sherbrook St., R3C 9Z9, or to the Duval Foundation of Knox United Church. Wheelchair access to the Church through the International Centre off the back lane. Arrangements entrusted to Klassen Funeral Chapel, 338-0331.
