It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our loving, gracious and inspiring wife, mother, and grandmother Margaret (Rita) McNeil Wigle on Tuesday, February 14, 2017 in Calgary, AB.

Rita is remembered by her husband and best friend Paul, her children Gavin (Michelle) Wigle and Kathleen (James) Joyce and grandsons Matthew and Cameron Joyce. Rita was born in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire Scotland and was predeceased by her parents Thomas and Sarah Shields of Kilmarnock, and her sister and brother-in-law Betty and Ian Lind of New Cumnock, Ayrshire Scotland. In 1959 Rita immigrated to Canada and was employed with TransCanada PipeLines Limited where she held a management position in HR prior to her retirement in 1992. Rita will be remembered by brother-in-law Dan (Brenda) Wigle, friends in England and close friends in Ontario. At Rita’s request there will be no public memorial but a private family gathering. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. Those wishing to pay their respects may consider a donation to their charity of choice.

In living memory of Rita Wigle, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Park Memorial, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Calgary, AB, T2S 2L5, Telephone: 403-243-8200.

    To Paul and Rita’s children,
    Cindy and I are thinking of you all and our wonderful memories of Rita. Her playful smile and endless generosity will remain with me forever. As poor employee just re-starting my career with TCPL, Rita was my neighbor across the street who offered support, guidance and encouragement during some tough days. Everyone went to Rita seeking a kind smile and the warm hand of true friendship. She will live in many people’s hearts forever.
