Mrs. Margaret Anne Milne (Pittard) born October 10, 1945 in Calgary, Alberta passed away unexpectedly June 27, 2015 at the age of 69 at the Red Deer Regional Hospital.
Marg, as she was known to most, was survived by her loving husband of 48 years Jim, her children Trish (Alex) Schwarzenberger, Sue (Paul) Isted; grandchildren Brittany, Dakota and Daniel Schwarzenberger, Dylan Flynn and Ethan Isted; by her brother Ted (Barbara) Pittard as well as many relatives and friends. She was predeceased by her parents, father Daniel Pittard, mother Elizabeth Clute and step-father Roger Clute; her mother-in-law Myrtle Milne and father-in-law James Milne; sister-in-law Viola Sundberg and brother-in-law Andrew Milne.
Marg grew up in Edmonton and married the love of her life on July 30, 1966 and they spent 48 treasured years together. In 1975 they moved to Stettler and with exception of a brief return to Edmonton and a recent move to Red Deer, Stettler was always home. The most important thing in her life was her family. They always came first and her pride and joy were her grandchildren who will always treasure “Grandmas Cookies.” Marg was a kind and gentle lady who would often be seen volunteering and giving back to the communities in which she lived through her involvement in organizations such as the Beta Sigma Phi, Stettler Lioness Club and more recently the Stettler Food Bank. Marg loved to travel and always treasured the time spent with friends, winters in Yuma but come April couldn’t wait to return home to spend time with her family.
Funeral Services were held in the Heartland Chapel of Stettler Funeral Home on Friday July 3, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. with Rev. Jack Schulze officiating. Mr. Don Melin gave a loving tribute of Marg. Evelyn Shursen presented her gift of music with “Make Me A Channel of Your Peace” accompanied by Melanie Weekes. Margaret will be laid to rest at Alto Rest Cemetery in Red Deer. Memorial donations in Marg’s memory may be made to STARS Air Ambulance or a charity of your choice.
