FLECKNOR, Margaret Elizabeth “Gran” (nee Ball)

April 21, 1944– Dauphin, MB
May 20, 2014 – Calgary, AB

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Margaret Flecknor. Following a courageous and lengthy battle with cancer, Margaret passed away peacefully with family at her side.

Margaret was born in Dauphin, Manitoba. She has lived in Neepawa, and Winnipeg, but eventually she called Calgary her home.

Margaret enjoyed making memories while traveling, and spending many a winter in and around Southern California. During quiet times, Margaret liked nothing better than to curl up, relax and read a good book. Spending time with family and friends meant the world to Margaret, whether it was enjoying a good meal, having a nice conversation, or just helping out in any way she could. Margaret will be greatly missed by her family and many good friends.

Margaret will be dearly missed by her loving children, Douglas, Christopher, and Jodi (Rod); her sister Linda; grandchildren Erik and Abbey (whom she adored); numerous family members; as well as many wonderful friends. She was predeceased by her parents Hazel Chapple and Jack Ball.

In keeping with Margaret’s wishes, no formal funeral service will be held. We encourage family and friends, old and new, to attend a Celebration of Margaret’s Life to be held at Jodi’s, on Saturday, May 31, 2014. Please email for details.

    Misses Flecknor as I always called her was a strong Woman that raised three wonderful children on her own. I remember spending many a night passing out in the basement and being invited for Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners 🙂 I cannot remember a time when she raised her voice to Doug or I even when we most likely deserved it! I know she is looking down from above with gleaming pride as she watches her children and grand children with loving eyes. Margaret (1st time calling her this) will be sorely missed and you were fortunate to have a mum like her. Doug Chris and Jodie you have made her proud and know she will be in your hearts forever.
