Margaret Rose Haaf HAAF

Oct. 13, 1940 – April 23, 2006

Marg entered into eternal life surrounded by her family at home after a long and courageous ­battle with cancer. Left to mourn are Ed, her husband of 39 years, sons Trevor and Jay, daughter Jody (Marc) Garneau, adored granddaughters Michaela, Dominique, Marya, and Kiera, as well as twin sister Bridget Rossiter, sister Marie (Francis) Kieley and brother Walter Williams.

She will be missed by loving relatives and friends from BC to Newfoundland, the beloved land of her birth. She was predeceased by her parents, Jim and Stella and brothers Gerry and Pat. She married Ed in 1966 and they were posted to BC where they started their family. During their years in the RCAF, they collected many friends across Canada before settling in Abbotsford. Marg worked in Activities at Maplewood House and MSA Manor. Marg was a devout Catholic and a woman of faith. We will miss her generous spirit, love of life, feistiness, and humour.

Prayers will be Thursday, April 27 at 7:00 pm and the Funeral Mass will be at St. Ann’s Catholic Church, 33333 Mayfair Ave., Abbotsford on Friday, April 28 at 10 am with Fr. Landry.
