Margaret FALK

FALK – Margaret (nee Willms). Margaret passed into the presence of her Lord on December 24, 2011. She was born on November 28, 1929 in Burwalde, Manitoba to Jacob and Anna Willms, the fourth of ten children. After attending a summer Bible Camp she entered into a wonderful relationship with the Lord and her spiritual pilgrimage began. When she was 16 years old her parents sold their farm, moved to the Fraser Valley and began attending the Arnold MB Church. Margaret sang in the church choir, taught Sunday School and Daily Vacation Bible School, and worked with the youth. Rather than return to public school she attended Abbotsford Bible School, graduating in 1953. In her final year there she met Werner Falk. After a courtship of 18 months they were in married in the Arnold Church. During the next several years three daughters were born to them. Margaret was a loving mother and grandmother and had a true servant’s heart. She did domestic work for many years to help support the family and her employers became very close friends. In addition to serving in her church, she volunteered for over 25 years at the MCC store in Clearbrook and sewed thousands of blankets and diapers to be sent overseas, saying a prayer for every child that would receive one of these gifts. In 2003 Margaret fell and injured her knee which led to other medical complications, eventually ending her stay on earth. Margaret leaves to mourn her loving husband Werner of 57 years, three daughters, Cheryl (Ben Wall) and their children Charissa and Geoffrey; Coleen (Gord Lint) and their children Thomas (Roxie), Alison (Ben), Jared (Chandelle), and Brandon; Janet (Raynold Nickel) and their children Mollee, Tessa (Aaron), Sydney, and Madison, and three great-grandchildren. We all miss her terribly, but rejoice knowing that she is with the Lord. A memorial service will be held at Bakerview MB Church on Clearbrook Road on Saturday, December 31st, 2011, at 11:00 am. In lieu of flowers, a donation to MCC would be appreciated.
