OBITUARY

Margaret Walton

Passed away on October 21, 2019

Margaret passed away Monday, Oct. 21, 2019 at 75 years of age.

She was predeceased by her parents, Charlie and Lavinia Johnson, a beloved sister-in-law, Iris Johnson, and brother-in-law, Bill Seabrook.

Margaret is lovingly remembered by her husband and partner of 56 years, Les Walton, her daughter, Laurie Walton, her granddaughter and grandson, Amanda & Nathan Chernesky, brothers and sisters, Jim & Janice Johnson (Sherwood Park, AB), Nelson & Doris Johnson (Regina, SK), Dorothy Seabrook (Regina, SK), Leonard & Phyllis Johnson (Okla, SK), May & Michel Lafleur (Orleans, ON) and many well-loved nieces and nephews.

Margaret grew up in Creelman, SK and after graduating, she moved to Regina where she worked at the Department of Education and the Department of Highways. She married Les and they had a daughter, Laurie. In 1971, she graduated from her training as a Laboratory Technologist. She worked at a number of labs in Regina and served as the president of the CSLT for a year.

In 1982, Marg and Les moved to Port Coquitlam, BC, and she worked at the Leigh Square Lab and BC Biomedical. She was a faithful member of the Grace Gospel Tabernacle and also lead the local chapter of Womens Aglow. Margaret loved praise and worship and could be counted on to labour in prayer for her friends and family. Their daughter, Laurie, and grand-daughter, Amanda, joined them in BC until 1990. Margaret moved back to Regina in 1991 and continued working in various labs until the mid 1990’s. Afterward, she completed an Office Education Certificate and worked for a time in a lawyer’s office.

Margaret loved many and was well-loved. She was kind and generous and was always ready to help others and pray for those who needed prayer. She was an “adopted mom” to many. Friends and family were always welcome in her home and at her table. Margaret is greatly missed already.

When I was a boy and we visited Auntie Margie's house she would always serve my brother and me "Quaker Harvest Crunch" cereal on TV trays in front of the living room television.

No matter how much our mother fed us before going over, there was always room for cereal. ;o)

It was a simple gesture but it meant the world to me then, and it still warms my heart 40 years later.

To a life well-remembered by so many.

Love,
Daryl

I’ll never forget the ladies meeting at Grace where my sister, Julie, your Mom and I had our picture taken together. Julie had your Mom laughing so hard that she could hardly breathe!!
We were all the best of friends.
She and Julie are having a wonderful time together in Heaven... ❤️
