Margaret passed away peacefully on April 16th 2014 at Glacier View Lodge.
Margaret was predeceased by her husband Gordon, her son Peter, and her daughter Lorna. She is survived by son Robert (Kathy) in Campbell River, son Donald in San Francisco, and grandchildren Travis (Shannon), Tyler (Jenni), Kieran (Naomi), and Justin.
Margaret was born in Newton Mearns, Scotland April 5th 1926.
She was raised in Glasgow, Scotland and at 18 she joined the British Army. While serving overseas in Italy, she met her husband-to-be Gordon Jones. They were married in Glasgow August 30, 1947, and eventually had 4 children, Robert, Peter, Lorna, and Donald.
The family immigrated to Canada in 1952 and resided in Victoria for many years before moving to Campbell River in 1967. In their retirement Margaret and Gordon were snowbirds and spent many happy winters in southern California.
Margaret loved plants and had a good knowledge of horticulture and a passion for gardening. She loved to read, knit, and play card games with friends. Road trips and camping were also favourite activities of hers. Margaret especially loved travelling to visit relatives in Australia and Scotland. In addition she found time to volunteer with the Girl Guides, Glee Club, and Women’s Legion Auxiliary.
We would like to acknowledge and thank Glacier View Lodge staff and Dr. Harris for the wonderful care they provided Margaret in her later years.
A celebration of Margaret’s life to be announced at a later date.
“May your soul’s energy be in a peaceful place, Mum.
You will be lovingly remembered by your family”.
