Margaret Mary Douglas ‘Margie’ Sunrise: February 10, 1922 – Sunset: June 27, 2020

It is with great sadness that we advise of the passing of our dear elder Margaret ‘Margie’ Mary Douglas. Margaret was born in Stawmus IR No. 24, in Squamish on February 10, 1922 to her mother Rose Douglas and father Jacob Harry. She resided in Xwmélch’tstn, Capilano IR No. 5 and passed away peacefully with love of family by her side at Cedarview Lodge in North Vancouver. Margaret grew up in Stawamus IR 24 and spend much time with her grandparents at Kwem kwem also known as Defense Island. She attended St. Paul’s Boarding School and worked in canneries up north in Knights Inlet and also here at Steveston. Like many of our families she picked berries and potatoes in Bainbridge Island, Wa. USA (Corpuz Fields). Her hobbies and interests include reading, walking, crocheting and especially her love for gardening and she will be remembered for her hard worker ethic, fierce love for family and belief in prayer. She was often found with her rosary beads praying for loved ones.

Margaret is predeceased by her husband of many years Norman ‘Smokey’ Adams from Katzie First Nation. Together they raised their family in Katzie First Nation while working at Squamish Nation’s Mosquito Creek Marina and the old band office on 5th Street until they moved into their home Capilano. She is survived by and will be dearly missed by her brother Bernard Miranda (Sharon); son Lawrence ‘Larry Douglas (Vera); daughters Sandra ‘Sandy’ Nahanee & Brenda Gail Joseph (Byron); special son William ‘Willie’ Nahanee; grandchildren Elaine, Darryl, Cory (Shanti), Norman (Michelle), William Jr., Sandy (Jaret), Kono (Tracy), Breanna (Michael), Bianca (Bronson), Kaiya (Wilson); great grandchildren Monique, Mary (Sam), Kollette, Angelina, Christina (Art), William III, Lillian, Travis Jr., Trevor, Kono Jr., Brendan (Michelle), Kyoni , Nakoa, Jacob, Kaikanim, Wilaiya, Treleen, Pearl; great great grandchildren Mason, Mateo, Mareya, Tyson, Kianna, Haliee; and many many loving relatives and dear friends.
