Margie Funk, (nee Hoeppner), started life on April 26, 1928, at the family home near Plum Coulee, Manitoba as the second oldest of thirteen children. She passed away at the age of 90 on March 22, 2019 at Tofield, Alberta.
We will lovingly remember her; her daughter Carol (Glen) Zacharias and their family, Mark (Nola), Lisa (Nathan), Jonathon (Bridget), Jacob (Leanne), Carrie (Andrew); her daughter Lorraine McAlpine and her family Robin (Kelli), Rhonda (Daniel), Michael (Chantelle), Alistair, and Donovan; and her son Andrew Funk. She loved her seven great-grandchildren, Madelyn, Austin, Magnus, Ronan, Zoe, Hudson, Ayla.
Mom leaves behind four sisters, Helen, Katie, Sarah, Doris; five brothers, Jim, John, Abe (Ruth) Don (Marlene) Dave (Betty); one sister-in-law Erna; numerous nieces and nephews, and countless friends. She was predeceased by George, her loving husband of 64 years; two sisters Jean and Diane; one brother Peter; two sisters-in-law Tina and Verna; and six brothers-in-law Abe, Bruno, Jim, Edwin, Bert, and Charlie.
Our mom was very creative, had a quick wit, and an easy laugh. She loved her trees, flowers and her garden. Her faith was deep, sincere, and was expressed by giving freely of her time and energy; teaching Sunday school, DVBS, Wayfarers, quilting for MCC and by faithfully praying for each family member by name.
