In loving memory ~

1932 - 2024

It is with great sorrow that we mark the passing of Margaret Wilwant. Margaret was born in London and emigrated to Canada in 1957 with her husband Derek Morgan and daughter Anita. She moved around the country, living in Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, and Winnipeg. She had two more children, Brendan and Michelle. In 1973, She met her second husband, Larry Wilwant, and later moved to Pembina, North Dakota. When Larry passed, Mom moved to Vancouver Island in 2009.

Margaret was an accomplished businesswoman and worked for the Manitoba Association of Registered Nurses for many years. In her downtime, she loved to travel, and she and Larry would travel the United States, in search of the best Jazz Festivals.

Mom always had time for family and spent lots of time in Pembina with her grandchildren, Keely and Aiden.

Margaret was predeceased by both Anita and Brendan. She is survived by her daughter, Michelle Morgan and husband, Ernie Hollman as well as her daughters-in-law, Andrea West and Cathy Johnsrude. Margaret is also survived by her two grandchildren, Keely and her family Christopher, Katarina, Henrique, Margaret, and her grandson, Aiden.

The family would like to extend many thanks to all the people at Stanford Seniors Village who supported Margaret, and the medical staff at NRGH who helped to make her last days comfortable. We will never forget your compassion.
