May 19, 1924 – Melfort, SK
March 6, 2014 – Calgary, AB

Marguerite Elizabeth Fleming of Calgary, passed away on Thursday, March 6, 2014 at the age of 89 years.

Marguerite came into this world with a natural affinity for life, embracing all it has to offer. Her happy years, growing up on the farm, cultivated her strong independent spirit. This led to wonderful experiences of travel and practicing her beloved profession of nursing. Margie nurtured countless people with her warm hugs, home baking, and cozy, hand knit sweaters. Margie’s many joys included music, and playing bridge with her friends, which was a passion that spanned more than fifty years. She was most content surrounded by her family. She is deeply loved and will be missed by many.

Margie is survived by daughters Shauna (Paul), Maureen and Monica (Rob), daughter-in-law Wendy (Gord), ten grandchildren Christopher, Kathleen, Carolyn, Heather, Liam, Aubrey, Ryan, Sean, Kaya and Colleen, and great granddaughter Brooklyn. She is predeceased by her loving husband, Francis John Fleming in May 2005, and son Denis Edward Fleming in July 2005.

    To all the Fleming family,
    Mom, Bob, Louise and I were so sad to hear of your mom’s passing. She was such a wonderful friend to Mom and a wonderful neighbour mom to all of us growing up. Your mom was especially kind to our mom these last years when mom couldn’t get around very well and had slowed in her bridge game. Marg made sure mom was included. Our great consolation is that she is now with our Lord and having a wonderful reunion with Frank and Denis and yes our Dad! We pray God will be your great comfort in theses next days.
    Lots of love from the Dixon family.

    My heartfelt sympathy to your families in the loss of Margie. I have many fond memories of your mom, memories that included her special love for good music, office Christmas parties with the Schuster lawyers, the devotion she displayed for her family, and the many, many colourful knit sweaters she so lovingly knit over the years. I know she will be sadly missed. I can only imagine the wonderful reunion she is now enjoying with Frank and Dennis!

  7. To the Fleming family,
    Connie, Gisela, Andrew and I were saddened to hear of your mom’s passing by way of Germany.
    Marg was such a cherished friend and bridge enthusiast to Rosemarie and Herb for many years.
    She was a wonderful neighbour on Stanley Drive to all of us children during the sometimes rowdy growing up years.
    We all express our consolation to the Fleming family. It’s reassuring to know that she is now with our Saviour and enjoying a wonderful reunion with Frank and Denis.

    “May knowing you’re
    in the hearts and thoughts of others
    help you and yours
    through this time of sorrow.”

    I had the opportunity to work with Marg way back in the late 80’s at Father Damien. She was so efficient, organized and “on top of everything going on in the school”…Thank Goodness!
    When I transferred out to a different school, Marg came to me and gave me positive accolades, accolades that I will never forget – it made me feel appreciated and strong.
    My thoughts and prayers go to Marg and her family, she will be thought of and remembered as one who quietly cared for others and would go out of her way to be helpful to those who truly needed it.
