H. "Margaret" Roberts

March 12, 1922 - October 27, 2017

Died peacefully on October 27, 2017 at Rosewood Village in Trail, BC, with family by her side.

Margaret was born on March 12, 1922 in Ymir, BC, the daughter of Harry and Eliza Bowen.

She was predeceased by her first husband Gustaf Flegel (1944) and by her second husband Walter "Lorne" Roberts (2002).

Margaret is survived by her four children; Gary (Bernice) Flegel, Tim (Noi) Flegel, Julie (Lloyd) Shimell and Linda Yanagisawa as well as 7 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren.

Due to the wide geographical separation of Margaret's survivors, a Celebration of Life will be held in Trail in the summer of 2018. Gwen Ziprick of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services has been entrusted with the arrangements.
