Margaret (Kallal) Dickson
It is with great sadness that we share the passing of our mother, Margaret Dickson, aged 93. Mom passed away peacefully on October 31, 2019 at Bow View Manor, Calgary. Tofield was truly Mom’s home; however in 2013, when she was faced with declining health, she moved to Calgary to be closer to her children.
Mom was an inspiration to her family. She believed that, ‘Life is what you make it,’ and she was personally determined to lead a life that was richly grounded in faith, friends and family. We remember her not only as a great mother; but also as a proud Sergeant in the Canadian Women’s Auxiliary Corp, a nurse, a Catholic lay leader, a community volunteer, a bridge player, an avid gardener and a keen traveler. Mom lived with a sense of optimism and thankfulness for all of her blessings.
Mom is survived by her children Bob, Ruth (Jim), Rita and Allan (Tineke); nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren; her sisters Dorothy Shewchuk and Connie Hatherton; her brother Lawrence Kallal; and many nieces and nephews.
A celebration of Mom’s life is set for 2:00 p.m., Saturday, May 2nd. Following the Mass at the Tofield Catholic Church and inurnment, friends and family are invited to join us for a reception at the Tofield Legion. We sincerely appreciate all of the support that the Tofield community provided Mom, especially as her needs increased.
Memorial donations are gratefully accepted by Catholic Social Services Edmonton, The Canadian Legion or a charity of choice.
