Margaret Ethel Dennis (Wise)

Margaret Ethel Dennis (Wise), age 83, of Blind Bay, BC passed away June15, 2017 after a valiant fight against cancer.  Through her journey she continued to teach us to live life fully, bravely and courageously.

Margaret’s passion was her family. She sought to instill in her children a commitment to family and friends, the importance of laughter and the power of kindness and a smile. Margaret loved bowling, sewing, knitting, quilting.  She was a big hockey fan and a homebody who loved watching and perhaps yelling at the Canucks on TV.

Margaret was predeceased, by her husband of 31 years, Arthur (Art) Dennis. He was her “Other” and felt lost without him. Margaret is survived by her 4 children:  Frances Buckle (Andy), Dawn Sharpe, Bodie Wise (Trish), Cindy Abbrusci (Ken Justice). Seven grandchildren -Matt Buckle, Andrea Ncwana, Kacey Sharpe, Cory Wise, Samantha Wise, Jacyln Sterling, and Nikki Abbrusci.  She was also blessed with 6 great grandchildren, and extended family including 3 stepchildren and their grandchildren – Susan & Ian Hadden, Tony & Jan Dennis, Terry & Tim Kahut.  

The family would like to thank Mom’s friends who she loved & who touched her deeply. Tim & Shirley Biernacki, Helga Tamagi, Marlis Albertson, June Samphire and Jarvis.  The journey was made easier with her compassionate doctors: Dr. Macdonald-GP and Dr. Main – Oncologist, the Oncology staff and ICU Nurses at the Salmon Arm Hospital.  Your care and compassion will forever be in our hearts.

Mom…..Keep us under your wings, you were simply the best – not only our mom but our best friend.
