Margaret Mary LUNDGREN

In Loving Memory of

Margaret Mary Lundgren

1916 – 2007

Margaret Lundgren (nee Konrad), beloved mother, grandmother and dear friend passed away on June 22, 2007. Margaret was predeceased by her loving husband Albert (Red) Lundgren in 1996; daughter Corinne (Ginger) Mear in 1979 and infant grandson Glen Mear in 1959. We are grateful for her love and all the memories. Margaret is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Dolores and Ernie Kidd of Kamloops, BC; grandchildren LeaAnn Kueng (David), Robert Mear (Lisa), Douglas Mear (Michele), Jeffrey Simpson (Karen), Dean Simpson (Tammy) and Tammy Simpson (Grant); step-grandchildren Ernie Kidd (Liz) and Tricia Maclean; eighteen great-grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, good friends and her beloved best friend, of over 65 years, Kay Davies.

Margaret was born in Spalding, Saskatchewan on November 8, 1916. She and her family moved to BC when she was 11 and ­settled on a farm in Bradner. She met “Red” at a dance in Aldergrove and they were married in 1939. Their daughter Corinne (Ginger) was born at Roberts Creek and after moving to Hope in 1942 another daughter, Dolores (Plory) completed their family. Margaret was a loving, caring mother who always had time for a “game with the kids”. When their family had grown, Margaret and Red moved to Nanaimo and upon retirement they settled in Abbotsford. They enjoyed their leisure time and took many lovely trips in their motorhome. After Red’s passing in 1996, Margaret moved to Kamloops to be closer to her daughter. She enjoyed playing cards at the senior center, carpet bowling and lunch with her friends. Margaret was a very generous and gracious lady who loved her family deeply.

“Mom, Grandma,

we will love you forever.

Thank you for everything.

We’ll see you later.”
