March 29, 1941 - January 14, 2024

The family sadly announces the peaceful passing of Margaret on January 14, 2024 at the age of 82. Born in London, England on March 29, 1941, she was the 4th of 6 children born to parents Ellen and John Henry Knox.

Margaret met her lifelong husband Bill at the age of 21 and was happily married for many years until his unfortunate passing on February 6, 2022.

Margaret and her family lived a life full of adventure, and travelled to many corners of the globe. In 1998, Margaret & Bill eventually retired to Kelowna, BC and continued to travel and enjoy the wonderful life they had built for themselves.

Margaret loved to cook, sew, make art, and most importantly watch Coronation Street. She was a driving force to always make time to celebrate special moments like birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries with her family and friends.

Margaret will be lovingly remembered by her sons William and Paul; daughters-in-law, Kris and Milka; grandchildren, Lindsay, Kelsey and Madison; as well as by her sister Jeanne & brother-in-law Dick.

Margaret was predeceased by her parents John Henry and Ellen, and her siblings Christina, John, Kenneth, and Eve.
