It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Margaret Anne Roy at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, BC. Surrounded by family and friends, Margaret answered God’s calling and passed away with great peace and dignity on November 29, 2015, at the age of 64 years.
Born April 27, 1951 in Tisdale, SK, she moved to BC with her family in 1967. She pursued many employment opportunities including millwork, hair-dressing, and hospital service. She completed her Licensed Practical Nurse training, which led her to a long career of patient care at Royal Inland Hospital.
Throughout her life Margaret showed great commitment to helping others in her role as an LPN. Outside of work she was a travel enthusiast, and completed trips across the globe including Europe, South Africa, Hawaii, and Tahiti. In her quiet time, she enjoyed using her tremendous talent making needlepoint art, and she would not miss a gathering of family where she greatly enjoyed preparing the feast and sharing tales of life on the farm.
The small-town girl with a huge heart will be missed by her mother Marie Francoise Roy of Salmon Arm, her many siblings, countless nieces and nephews, and her dear friends including Bette Ross of Kamloops. She was predeceased by her father Laurent Gerard Roy in 1987.
Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10:30AM Wednesday, December 16, 2015 at St, Joseph’s Catholic Church in Salmon Arm. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation in Kamloops, in recognition of the extraordinary care Margaret received while a patient. The family would also like to acknowledge Margaret’s family doctors, Dr. James Levins and Dr. Ada-Marie Steyn, for their excellent and compassionate care over many years of difficulty.
“… Our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” Romans 8:18
