GILMOUR, Margaret Frances (nee Pringle)

July 18, 1921- Consort, Alberta
August 7, 2013 – Calgary, Alberta

Margaret Frances Gilmour of Calgary passed away on Wednesday, August 7, 2013 at the age of 92 years.

Margaret was born in Consort and raised in Bentley, Alberta. As a young girl she started her career as a bank teller in the Lacombe branch of the Royal Bank. While living in Lacombe she met her future husband George Barr Gilmour. They married in 1943 and moved to Edmonton where they raised their young family that included two daughters. Margaret lived in Calgary for forty-five years after moving there with her husband Barr in 1968. She was an active member of the community and volunteered in many capacities such as Sunday School Teacher, CGIT leader, Meals on Wheels, and for twenty-five years served as a volunteer at the Foothills Cancer Clinic.

Margaret was happiest when spending time with family and friends. She will be remembered by those who knew her as a friendly, welcoming person who could always be counted on to lend a helping hand and spread joy to those around her.

Margaret is survived by two daughters and sons-in-law Joanne and Brian McFadzean and Tricia and Grant Harvey; three grandchildren Matt (Angela), Jennifer (Marlin) and Susanne; four great-grandsons Cohen, Brayden, Grayson and Zachary. She was predeceased by her dearly loved husband Barr; granddaughter Karen McFadzean; and two brothers Jack and Garry Pringle.

As per Margaret’s request, a small family graveside service will be held at Lacombe Cemetery at a later date. Forward condolences through www.McInnisAndHolloway.com.

    My condolence to all the family from ours. I am just sorry I did not get to see Margaret over the last few years. Margaret was always bringing the long lost family members together for a meal and lots of laughs. She was so kind and considerate to all and I know she will be greatly missed.
