It is with a deep sense of love and loss that we announce the passing of Margaret Pyper on July 27, 2015 at the age of 87. Her Lord and Saviour called her home after suffering from cancer. Margaret was born in Niewer Amstel, Netherlands. She will be remembered as a loving wife to Tom, living a wonderful life and enjoying 66 years together. She is also survived by her sister Janna (Henk) De Klerk, her brothers Theo Van Geemen, and Anton (Emmy) Van Geemen, her son John (Mary Joan) Pyper and daughter Suzan (Dan) McKenzie and numerous relatives in Canada and the Netherlands. She was blessed with 7 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. Margaret was predeceased by her parents, Willem and Susanna

Van Geemen and her daughter Meg Pyper. Music was a passion for Margaret since she was a young child and was known as an accomplished soprano. She sang in many choirs like the Goldenairs, the Sunrise Village Choir, the Dutch Canadian Choir, the International Choir and the Calgary Philharmonic Choir.
