1937 – 2017
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.
