MARGARET ELLEN SIM, of Lethbridge, passed away peacefully at St Michael’s Palliative Care Centre on Monday, January 7, 2013 at the age of 78 years.
Margaret Ellen was born to Peggy and Hjalmer Nylund in Calgary, Alberta on October 21, 1934. She married Donald Kenneth Sim on August 6, 1954. (Don predeceased Margaret on October 6, 1990).
Margaret fought a strong fight with her battle with cancer. Not wanting to give up, she gave her best to do all she could each day. She took time to enjoy the pleasures of nature as she looked out her windows, marveling in the determination of the various creatures she grew to enjoy. Making the best of each day, the simple things were accomplished with personal strength: “It was a struggle, but I persevered and I did it.”
Margaret is survived by her children and their families: Darrel and Heather, Jaclyn, Josh; Kathy and Tom Bennett, Dixie, Kyle and Jennifer, Hannah, Elizabeth, Jackson, Sheldon, Angie and Luke Crutchfield; Diana; Lorna and Lloyd Dennis, Christina and Tim Wills, Addy, Aydan; Stephanie Dennis and Dakota Vidmar. Her siblings: George and family; Johnny, Marie and family; Eleanor, Howard and family. Her golf buddies were her treasured friends, along with extended family and several friends.
