Margaret FOSTER

FOSTER, Margaret Ann

March 1, 1905 ~ Feb 4, 2010

It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Margaret passed away shortly after 9pm Feb 4. She was predeceased by son George and daughter Marjorie Ann; survived by her loving daughter Sheila (Harold) Ervin; grandchildren Jim, Cherlynn, Wayne, Kerry and Jeffery; great grandchildren Nicole, Tyler, Corey, Troy, Riley, Ashley, Sean, Serena, and Gracie.

Margaret was born in Winnipeg, one of six children. She lost her husband in 1950, a major in the RCA before and during WWII, and moved from Winnipeg to Vancouver with her two daughters Sheila, and Marjorie Ann in 1951. She worked for Jersey Farms and then Silverwood Dairies from 1952 until her retirement in 1976, where she was highly regarded for her kindness, generosity, and dedication to a job well done. Margaret enjoyed a who dunnit mystery and was the family’s Sherlock Holmes.

Her thoughtfulness in helping others led to substantial volunteer work, including the Cancer Society, Brock House, and The Billy Bishop Legion.

The family wishes to give the management and staff of Pleasant View Housing Society, Mission, their sincere thanks for their outstanding care from 1998 until the time of her death. You will forever be sorely missed and fondly remembered by all. No funeral by request
