MARGARET “MAGGIE” POLLEMANS, beloved wife of John Pollemans of Coaldale, passed away at St. Michael’s Health Centre – Palliative Care Unit, on Wednesday, April 24, 2019 at the age of 65 years.

Besides her husband John, Maggie is survived by her children Adam, Anita (Levi) and Roger; stepchildren Mandy (Ken) and Matt (Tonya); grandchildren Isabella, Triestin, Carter, Keaton, Harlow and Branden; and great-grandson Beckett.

Maggie was born August 8, 1953 in Cuauhtemoc, México. At age four and a half, Maggie, with her family, pioneered to Belize where she lived until 1981 when Maggie and her children moved to Canada. Maggie started her career in nursing, moving later into massage therapy. John and Maggie met in May 1996 for a picnic. It was so special to them that they celebrated every year thereafter with a picnic in the park. They married in 1997.

Maggie faced her illness much like she faced any challenges in her life; with strength, courage and her unwavering faith in the Lord. Her family and friends will miss finding her in the garden and her stories of her beloved Belize.
