Forrest, Margaret Elizabeth

Margaret Elizabeth Forrest passed away peacefully with family on July 15th, 2008, at the age of 76 years. Margaret was born in Drumheller, Alberta on January 1st, 1932 to parents Steve and Amalia Csepe. A talented student and a devoted daughter, her early life was spent in Drumheller. Margaret was always a very caring person and as such she went into the profession of nursing. She graduated from the Holy Cross Nursing School and went on to become an emergency room nurse at the General Hospital. Margaret was married to Alex Forrest and together they had three children, Jim, Alex, and Shannon. Margaret took great pride in her children and always looked forward to their visits. Margaret’s husband died in 1978 and she took on the challenges of looking after the house and raising her children with courage and determination. After suffering a stroke in 1998, Margaret was forced to leave her beloved acreage in Irricana, Alberta. The pain of having to relocate to an adult care facility was lessened by the fact that she was welcomed into the Bethany Care Home Family. She always enjoyed the company and care she received from the staff. Margaret will be greatly missed. Margaret will be lovingly remembered by her children, Jim and his wife Deanna, Alex and wife Heather, and Shannon; grandchildren, Farran, Aftan, Lisa, Holly, William, Tyler, and Ryan. A Private Family Service will be held at a later date. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

The family would like to thank the Bethany for all the care and attention they gave to Margaret during her years at the facility.
