Margarete Regina Card

February 4, 1954August 7, 2019

With broken hearts we announce the passing of Margarete (Redie) Regina Card (nee Borm) on August 7, 2019 at age 65. She was born to John and Louise Borm on February 4, 1954 in Calgary, AB. Redie loved her friends and family more than anything. She always had room in her heart for anyone who needed it. At home she loved to cook and bake for those she loved and no one ever left the table hungry, “There`s more!”. Even Redie`s beloved birds, that visited her yard daily, were well taken care of. She loved the outdoors, and so many memories were made around campfires and lakes. Before retiring, Redie worked at the Royal Columbian Hospital for 23 years. The friends and memories she made there were so very important to her. Margarete is survived by her mother Louise Kazak (nee Verbist). Her husband Eric Card of 42 years; son Lee, daughter-in-law Toni-Lynn, granddaughters Ashlyn, Elise and Isabel; Daughter Kim, her partner Randall. Sisters Lanie (Dick), Judy, Anna (Keith). Sisters-in-law Lynn (Trev), Anne, and Brothers-in-law Glen and Rob. Margarete is also survived by many loved nieces and nephews, as well as aunts, uncles and cousins in the Netherlands. Margarete was predeceased by her brother Stanley in 1970; Father John in 1993; Sister-in-law Susie in 2018. A Celebration of Life will be held at her home in Barriere, BC on Saturday, August 24th for friends and family. For information please email Eric at ericrcard@gmail.com. The family suggests memorial contributions be sent to OWL Orphaned Wildlife at www.owlrehab.org

Margaret always had a smile on her face. She was a loving mother to Lee and Kim and her love for her grandchildren, Ashlyn, Elise and Isabel was even bigger. You will be missed Redie.

Redie
You were like the buttons on a cozy flannel shirt ,keeping us all warm and together.
My shoulder to cry on and my kick in butt when needed.
The best friend and Sis anyone could ask for.
I will miss you everyday from from the morning call It's your Loving Sister, to bedtime What you doing now?????
Your heart has touched everyone that came near you.
No more worries or pain.
Love you

My sister
I will always look back and remember that you were that one person who could turn every frown into a smile in a few simple words , that one person who knew who I really was and that one person that made the biggest difference in my life....my best friend... my sister.
I feel so lucky to have spent the last few months by your side . Playing Yatzy ( even if you always won) , going for walks, making sure we had dessert at 7:30 every night or you would let Kim or I know if we were late, helping you make muffins, cookies, cakes, or should I say assist you. ( you were determined to do it yourself) so we were the clean up crew. You always wanted to make everyone happy... that was my sister her whole life. Always giving . She just carried on with what life dealt her and made the best of it , having sleep overs with the grandkids, seeing her friends and family. Always had a positive attitude to the very end. Her answer if you asked how she was feeling, “fine, just a little tired”.
I’m going to miss your beautiful smile, you telling me it’s going to be ok, our talks, just our time together .
I love you so much .

It's your Loving Sister

The Broken Chain
We knew that day,
They were going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death,we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you.
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day they called you home.

You left us beautiful memories,
You love is still our guide.
And although we can not see you,
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But as we get called one by one,
The chain will link again .

I LOVE YOU SIS

Margarete is so special to me. We became friends when I started working at RCH. I call her mother because she was like one to me. She was my confidante, my shoulder to cry on. She was a sweet, loving, caring, helpful and a trustworthy friend. I will treasure all the memories we had together specially the last two days I spent with her together with our other friends, Maria and Diane. Sitting with her, I can feel that her silence had a different meaning. There was something in her that she didn’t want us to know. She stayed up late just to be with us. The next morning she finally agreed to bring her to the hospital because of shortness of breath. So we came with her. Before heading back to Vancouver, we wanted to see her and give her a hug but we were not allowed to go inside the ER. So we tried to find a way. And thanks to the security guard who made it possible but he said only for a few minutes. Margarete was surprised to see us. The sweet smile when she saw us was precious to me because that was one thing I missed on her. Those hugs and kisses was to comfort her and let her know that I love her. I told her to keep on fighting and don’t be stubborn and that we will visit her again. But without knowing it, those hugs and kisses was meant for saying goodbye forever and for thanking her for the love and friendship. If we only knew that it will be our last time to see her, we should have stayed longer. She is now in a peaceful place where there’s no pain and sufferings. But for the family and friends who loves her, the pain will always be there, we just learn to get used to it. I will deeply miss her.
