It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Margaret Fisher, our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend. Margaret passed away surrounded by her family, December 17, 2012 in Abbotsford, BC.
Margaret was born on July 14, 1936 in Glasgow, Scotland. She immigrated with her family to Canada in the early 1970’s when her family moved to Canmore, Alberta. Cherished wife of Robert Fisher, Margaret will always be lovingly remembered by her 6 children, Derek (Tara), Fiona, Mark (Sandra), Colin (Nicole), Jean (Brian), Russell; 2 brothers, John and Ian; 2 sisters, Mary and Hannah; 5 grandchildren; 2 great-granddaughters; and many other family and friends.
Margaret was predeceased by her grandson, Grayson; her sister, Nancy; and her brother, Bill.
Mom will be forever remembered for her love and dedication towards her family, for her love of life and whirlwind spirit.
No formal funeral service will be held at this time. A gathering in her memory may take place in spring 2013. A future announcement will be put in the paper when a location, time and date have been decided.
Margaret will be laid to rest in her final resting place with her parents and sister in Canmore, Alberta.
A heartfelt thank you to all the staff at Fraser Hope Lodge in Hope, BC and to Menno Home in Abbotsford, BC for everything you’ve done for mom and our family during this difficult time.

It's another Mother's Day so I wanted to write you this letter. I wanted you to know that, if you were still here, I would spend the entire day with you. I can't imagine anything else that could be more important today. We'd talk and laugh and just bask in the joy of being together.
I would tell you …
… how special you always made me feel.
… how much I love to see you smile.
… how you helped me become who I am.
… how much I enjoy talking with you.
… how happy it makes me when I think of our times together.
… that you are the best mom anyone could ever have.
… how lucky I feel to be your child.
… that I love you.
I would thank you …
… for teaching me right from wrong.
… for being so patient when I was so impatient.
… for standing up to me when you thought I was making a mistake.
… for being a role model to me.
… for being so giving, not just to me but to everyone you cared about.
… for showing me what it means to be a good person.
… for preparing me for life.
… for loving me no matter what.
I would ask you …
… how you could be so tough and yet so loving at the same time.
… if there is anything you need, because I know you won't tell me otherwise.
… to tell me stories of your life, even ones I've heard before so I never forget them.
… to tell me more about our family, so I always remember my heritage.
… for advice on anything and everything, but especially for raising your grandchildren.
I would take you …
… to your favorite place so we could just hang out.
… for a drive just so we could spend time together.
… to the park so we could enjoy the beauty of nature.
… for a walk so we could talk alone.
… in my arms and give you a big hug and a kiss.
Mom, if you were still here, I would linger with you … wishing that I never had to leave. I miss you, but I want you to know that your memory will always be with me, and …
… most of all, I'll always wish we had just one more moment to spend together.
With much love,
November 10, 2013

Hi Fiona: I don't think I ever met you but I am Robert Fisher's niece Susan Campbell - Your Mom was such a lovely person and so welcoming we went to visit her and Uncle Bob a few times in the past 10 years and my kids and myself and husband are all very saddened by this loss. I have lost track of my Uncle and I was wondering if you could provide me his new phone number. I spoke once with them when they moved into the apartment, but didn't realize that their phone number changed and when I tried to call the number was no longer in service. If you don't want to give me the phone number I will understand please ask Uncle Bob to phone me - he is my last remaining Uncle on my Mother's side (she passed away in 2004) I live in Calgary and my number is (403) 240-0141. My cell # is (403) 465-0046 I don't have voice mail hooked up but you can text me if you would like - Thank you Sue
I will miss your Mom and I know she loved you all very much - she talked a lot about you :) - Sue

So sad to hear of Margaret's passing. She was a wonderful person I deeply admired. Sorry I had lost touch with her and Uncle Bob, we had some good visits together.

I'm sorry to hear of Aunt Margaret's passing. While I haven't seen her for many years, I will always treasure memories of spending time with her as a child before she left for Canada. Love and best wishes, from Cheryl Sonnier (Jessop)

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

I love you grandma so much. And miss you to pieces, the tought of not seeing you again breaks my heart. I have so many memories of you and each one reminds me of how blessed I am to have a grandmother like you. I close my eyes and can hear you humming and singing. Its what I fall asleep to every night. You are at rest but never forgotten, the prints you left in my life I hope to leave in my own child and grand children one day. From tea time with dolls, wheel barrel rides, someone i could talk too,and stories that made you feel their. I love you xoxo
