Margaret (Rita) Beagle

Our Margaret (Rita) Beagle (nee Gilchrist) will be dearly missed.


Born at home close to Lethbridge, Alberta on June 5th, 1914, and passed away peacefully at the age of 95 on May 3, 2010. Rita was predeceased by her husband of 53 years, Gordon R.Beagle. She leaves behind three children, Dwane (Paulette) Beagle, Barbara (Ian) Macnaughton, and Verna (Nels)Flaathen. Rita had seven grandchildren, Gordie, Rhonda, Jason, Mary (deceased), Robert, Adrienne and Greg. Additionally, she had four great grandchildren and one great great grand child.


Rita deeply touched the lives of her friends and students throughout her life. Grace, strength, loyalty and a deep concern for the environment were hallmarks of her life, and will continue to set an example for many.


In lieu of flowers, we request that a donation in her memory be made to a Canadian nature/wildlife organization of your choice.


A Memorial service will be held at the Snodgrass Funeral Home in High River, Alberta on Saturday, May 22nd, 2010, at 1 p.m.
