peacefully on May 9, 2013.  She will be sadly missed

by her children, Steven

and John (Lesley) of

Canberra, Australia and

her grandchildren, Megan (Lewis), Michael (Sarah)

and Briana and her great granddaughters Taryn and Mia. She was predeceased

by her loving husband

Joseph Ernest (Ernie) Cowan in October 2001 after 53 years of marriage.  Margaret was born in Wellington, New Zealand on July 1, 1919 and arrived in Canada in 1946.  A short stay in Vancouver on her way to England turned into permanent residence with her marriage to Ernie on October 16, 1948.  The Cowan family moved to Kelowna in 1957, before the first bridge was built. Margaret was very active in the Catholic school community as well as the Catholic Women’s League of Immaculate Conception

Parish, The Water Colour Guild, various local theatre

productions, The Okanagan Symphony Orchestra, 

The Naturalists Club and the Ladies of the Pool. 

The Family gratefully appreciate the help and assistance

of the caring staff of Harmony Living, 962 Laurier Avenue, Kelowna; Margaret’s residence since 2005. 

The Cowan family would like to thank the medical staff

of the Emergency Department and Ward 5B of the

Kelowna General Hospital.  A funeral mass will be held

on Wednesday May 15 at 10:30 am at Immaculate

Conception Church, 839 Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna BC.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to

the Catholic Women’s League.
