Margaret Rene Deptuck

(nee Blomquist)

passed away on Saturday March 2, 2013 peacefully at her home with her daughter by her side.

Born in Comox St Joseph’s Hospital June 30, 1934.

Marg loved the outdoors.  She enjoyed hunting and fishing and was on excellent marksman.  She would set off on her bicycle to get the cows with her 22 and her slingshot in her pocket and bring home a pheasant for supper.  She spent many a quiet afternoon at Comox Lake watching a bobber waiting for a trout.

She left Tsolum School in grade eight to stay home and help her ill mother on their Dove  Creek farm.  Marg attended Business College in Courtenay, learning shorthand. She tried to join the Air Force, but was rejected because she was to  young.  She worked in the Courtenay laundry on Cliffe Ave, and later worked in  housekeeping at St. Joseph’s Hospital.

Marg married John Deptuck and moved to 100 Mile House,  returning to Courtenay two years later.  She was a hardworker and dedicated to her home and family.  She enjoyed an afternoon visit from friends and always had a cup of tea and cookie or pastry ready for the table.

Predeceased by her mother and father, Hilda and Eliel Blomquist, her brother Phil Blomquist, nephew Mark Blomquist and her husband John Deptuck.

Survived by her brother Eric Blomquist (Marilyn) her daughter Kathy Yeomans (Dave) and her sons Dennis Deptuck, Ron Deptuck (Cindy) and Andy Deptuck.

Granddaughters Kristie Deptuck (Justin) and Savanna Deptuck (Ryan) and her grandson Kody Deptuck (Kaley) and numerous nieces and nephews and cousins here as well as many cousins in Finland.

No service by request but if you wish a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated.

A special thanks to Dr Russel Atkinson and all the nurses and home care support staff.

Untill we all meet again Mom,

Always in our memory – Alltid i vårt minne
