Margaret Rose Ackerman, of Prince George B.C., passed away peacefully, with family by her side, on November 21, 2012.
Marg was born to Maud and Wilfred Schulz on September 12, 1939, in Trail, B.C., and grew up in Salmon Arm. She was married to Wayne Ackerman for 21 years prior to their separation. She worked for B.C. Corrections for over 20 years, before retiring in 1998.
Marg is survived by her sister Ilene (Al) of Bouchie Lake, daughter Paige (Kirk) of North Vancouver, and son Derek (Julie) and grandchildren Troy and Kendra of Cranbrook; she leaves loving memories with them all.
Marg was an active volunteer for Meals on Wheels and the Elder Citizens Recreational Association in Prince George, and she enjoyed exploring the world both close to home and far away. She loved animals and also volunteered time to the SPCA. Marg was creative and curious and, following her retirement, she developed a keen interest in genealogy, dabbled in painting, and constantly enjoyed updating and improving her home and garden.
Marg’s family would like to thank the doctors and staff at University Hospital of Northern BC for the level of care provided.
Memorial donations are unnecessary, but may be given in Marg’s honour to a reputable charity of your choice in lieu of flowers.
An informal gathering to celebrate Marg’s life was held at the Elder Citizens Recreational Association in Prince George at 1692 – 10th Avenue on Friday November 30th.
