Margaret Beveridge Fisher

July 14, 1936December 17, 2012


Margaret Fisher (Mom) will be Interned in Canmore Alberta on July 24, 2013 at the Canmore Cemetery. The service will be held from 2pm - 3pm with a Reception afterwards for family and friends to gather at the Best Western Pocaterra in Canmore from 3:30-4:30pm. Tea, Coffee and Pastries will be served. Any further information required, please contact Tara Lanyon at 1-604-302-8300.

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.

Dear Mom,

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,



Fiona Jessop
