Obituary

It is with deep sorrow and much love that the family of Margaret (nee Morgan) MacGregor announce her passing on November 12, 2018 at the age of 81 years.

Margaret will be lovingly remembered by her son, Bruce (Jennifer); and her daughter, Fiona. Margaret will also be fondly remembered by her four grandchildren, Dylan, Keegan, Kyleigh, and Hailey; nieces and nephews; as well as extended family across the pond in Scotland.

Margaret was predeceased by her husband, W. Graham MacGregor; and sister, Elizabeth “Betty” McKiernan.

Born in Glasgow, Scotland, she often recounted memories of her childhood during WWII. After nursing college and marrying Graham, they emigrated to Canada; to Edmonton, Alberta. Following a brief residence and the arrival of Fiona, they moved to St. Albert, where they welcomed the arrival of their son, Bruce. They proceeded to make St. Albert their hometown of choice for over 40 years, while never losing their Scottish accents.

Margaret was a brilliant powerhouse and earned her roles as a Director both within Alberta Health and Vital Statistics. In semi-retirement Margaret worked (then later volunteered) for the Youville Home in St. Albert, where she had a deep respect and fondness for the Grey Nun sisters. She also was honored to work as a marriage commissioner, subsequently marrying 200+ couples over the years.

A deeply spiritual person, Margaret will be remembered by family and friends as kind, loyal and fierce.

The family wishes to send a special thank-you to the staff of long term care at the Citadel in St. Albert; your care and support of mom will always be remembered.

A Funeral Liturgy celebrating Margaret’s life will be held at 10:00 am, on Saturday November 17, 2018, at St. Albert Funeral Home, 9 Muir Drive, St. Albert.

Those who so desire, may make memorial donations in memory of Margaret to the Youville Home/Covenant Foundation of St. Albert, 9 St. Vital Avenue, St. Albert, AB, T8N 1K1.

In Loving Memory of
Margaret MacGregor
(Maiden: Morgan)
