Margaret Muriel Layman, beloved wife of Glen Layman of Calgary, passed away at the Rockyview General Hospital on Saturday, November 27, 2004 at the age of 87 years.
Margaret was born on February 18, 1917 in Nokomis, SK. She took her schooling in Nokomis then attended Normal School in Saskatoon in 1937. She taught school at various locations before (and after) her marriage to Glen Layman on May 10, 1942. Following the War, they settled in Stoughton, SK, moving to Weyburn in 1965. She was very active in the United Church and Community Services as long as her health would permit. Margaret was a loving, wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend. We will miss her dearly.
Besides her loving husband Glen of sixty-two years, Margaret is survived by a daughter Elsie of Calgary; a son and daughter-in-law, Robert and Jan of Red Deer; three grandchildren, Neil, Colin and Jill of Calgary; and four great-grandchildren, Jessica, Rebecca, Joshua, and Logan.
