REDMOND, Margaret Alice (nee Treacy)

November 16, 1940 – Montreal, QC
January 19, 2015 – Calgary, AB

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Margaret. She has now joined her beloved husband John who went before her in April 2014 to build their future life together.

Despite a diagnosis of cancer, she continued to live life fully, always surrounded and supported by the most wonderful and generous friends, neighbours and caregivers.

Caring, loving and kind, Margaret was happiest when giving of herself and initiating endeavours to enhance the lives of others.

A strong commitment to family, Margaret’s spirit lives on through her two daughters Linda and Treacy (Josée); her sons John (Lori) and Brian (Nathalie); her grandchildren, Ashley, Tyler (Katie), Tim (Amy), Chloé and Sébastien; sister Kathleen (Mike); brothers, Jim (Josephine), Peter (Joan), and John; sister-in-law Eileen Redmond; and the many nieces, nephews, and other relatives that she loved dearly. Margaret was predeceased by her parents Peter and Margaret Treacy; and her sister Eileen.

The family will host two celebrations of Margaret’s life. Details for the Calgary celebration are below and details for the Montreal celebration will be shared with family and friends over the coming weeks.
A Celebration of Margaret’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Wednesday, January 28, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made directly to www.cancer.ca.

In living memory of Margaret Redmond, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: 403-256-9575.

    Dear Linda, John, Brian and Treacy,

    I am very sorry to hear of your mother’s passing, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I can only imagine how difficult this has been, and my heart goes out to you and your families.
    It had been years since I last saw your mom, but I remember her very well while growing up in Verdun. Your mom always struck me as the pillar of strength and I am not sure why, but that is how I always viewed her. She lives on through all of you and all the people she has touched.
    Your mom brought you all into this world, and took care of you for the rest of her life. Take courage in knowing she is at peace in her new home, with her beloved husband, your dad watching over all of you. My prayers are with all of you always.

    My deepest condolences.

    Kathleen Light

    Dear Treacy and Joseé, it is certainly kindness what makes the most significant heritage. Think of Mrs. Redmond as someone who deserves and cherishes each one of your smiles, each one of your generous actions. Much love from grays and oranges; written in front of the Guatemalan volcanoes.

    Dear Kathleen and Mike,

    Our sincere condolences on Margaret’s passing. We were so happy to have had the pleasure to meet Margaret, and you both in Mexico last winter. Margaret and I had some nice chats and also kept in touch via e-mail over the past year. I was so inspired by her spirit and optimism – even to the last few days. I am sure this was no surprise to family and long time friends. It was my pleasure to have had this short but pleasant connection.
    With sincere sympathy, Barbara and Avi

  24. My heartfelt condolences to the Redmond family. I knew Margaret from our mutual exercise class at Mount Royal University. She was always an energetic, warm and fun person to be around during our hour long sessions around the running track. I will especially miss the coffee gatherings after class when her wit and vivaciousness would always shine through. We shall raise a glass for her when we next meet for our ‘graduation’ lunch at the Wild Rose Pub. Margaret was a lovely person.
