NICHOLAS; Margaret. On Sunday July 27th, 2014, Margaret Anna-Marie Nicholas went to be with the Lord. Her husband James was at her side holding her hand as she entered heaven. She was born on April 7th, 1920 in Roblin, Manitoba to Helen and Robert Switzer. She leaves behind her husband James of 64 years and her three married children, David (Alvina) Nicholas, Claudia (Fred) Andrews and Sharon (Stan) Sharkey, 8 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren and her sister Helen Spies. She moved to Kelowna in 1946 where she met her husband and lived until 1962, and then moved to Terrace and Kitimat before settling in Abbotsford in 1967. Many may remember her as being the helpful and friendly co-owner of Abbotsford Hardware 1970 – 1990. For 9 years Margaret supported her husband who was the Director of Senior Ministries. Margaret was dedicated to her family and modelled a love of God. Special thanks to the Menno Home for the Christian care they gave Margaret the last 2 years, and Dr. Milne who would kindly visit her.
