March 28, 1939 – November 14, 2022
In Loving Memory ~
On Monday November 14th, 2022, Margaret Mark passed away peacefully at home with her three boys and grandson by her side.
Margaret was born on March 28th, 1939 in Kelvington, Saskatchewan. The eldest of four girls, she moved with her family to the Terrace area in 1956.
In 1957 Margaret met her soulmate Svend and they were married on June 25th, 1960 at the United Church on Lakelse Avenue.
Margaret was always sewing and knitting. She knit many beautiful sweaters that many of us are still wearing to this day! She was an avid card player, often playing bridge with friends and neighbors as well as playing crib with her family.
Margaret hosted epic dinner parties. Her many China patterns and dinner themes were only outdone by her amazing cooking! For many years she prepared meals in hunting camps using fine China, plates always warm. She would open the trailer door and yell “It’s ready” to the delight of all that were present!
Dad complained more than once about the weight of her China while trying to tackle mountain passes with their 5th wheel!
Margaret is predeceased by her loving husband of 61 years, Svend. She is also predeceased by her parents Harry Chemko and Margaret Evans.
And by her sister Diane (Alvin).
Margaret is survived by her sons Scott (Camille), Shawn, and Svend jr. She is survived by two sisters, Louise (Doug) and Harriet (Jim). She is also survived by her grandchildren Celina, Morgan, Kai and little Svend.
Margaret was an amazing Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Sister. She was kind, caring, classy and no nonsense! Mom was beautiful inside and out! She was an inspiration!
She will be dearly missed but never forgotten!
