Margaret Elizabeth Mary left to be with her Lord on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at the age of 99 years.
May was born and spent her youth in Saskatchewan on a farm. Later, she continued her education in Red Deer, AB and Pasadena, CA. Upon graduation, she pastored churches in Alberta until her marriage to Charsten in 1939. Together they spent many years pastoring and teaching in Alberta, New Brunswick and Saskatchewan. In 1959, they moved to Calgary where she remained faithful in work for her Lord. For hobbies, she grew prize-winning roses and enjoyed China painting as well as several other crafts. In her later years, she enjoyed visiting elderly ladies hoping to relieve some of their loneliness. She will be missed by many.
May leaves to mourn her passing three sons, Orval, Byron and Kelvin; one daughter Beth; seven grandchildren, Cheryl, Jennifer, Jodi, Kevin, Dara, Stephanie and Cosmo; two sisters, Gladys and Ethel; and a number of nephews, nieces and cousins. She was predeceased by her husband Charsten and her parents, Robert and Anniebell Waite.
