Margret POOL

POOL; Margret Anita 1934 ~ 2014


It is with much sadness we announce the peaceful passing of our loving mother and Nana, Margret Anita Pool, on Friday, October 31st. Mom was often likened to Samantha on “Bewitched” so we find it incredibly appropriate that she chose Halloween to be “her” day. She had battled cancer successfully twice before, but this time just proved too much. We take great comfort that she is at peace and is no longer in pain. Mom was 80 years old. Margret was predeceased by her only sibling, her brother Einar and sister-in-law Donna of Sudbury, Ontario; and is survived by her daughter Elaine (Doug) Howarth; and her sons Dennis (Vivian); Perry and Jeffrey. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Craig (Andrea); Derek (Megan); Kenneth (Lyndsey); Lucas; Mason and Madison; and four great-grandchildren, Taylor, Pyper, River and Everly. Her brother’s children, her nieces and nephews, held a very special place in her heart and the family acknowledges their love and support.

Thank you for the compassion and personal care shown by the nurses and doctors of the palliative care unit at Abbotsford Regional Hospital during Mom’s last days. Special thank you Dr. Sidhu, Becky and Rhea. She will be dearly missed. Farewell to an amazing and beautiful lady. Celebration of Life to be held on Monday, November 10th @ 2:00 pm, Bradner Community Hall, 5305 Bradner Road, Abbotsford, BC.
