By Eden’s Funeral Home
September 15, 2021
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Margaret at Lee Crest Cardston at the age of 89. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband, Charlie; her sisters Eva and Georgina; as well as many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. She was predeceased by her sister Rita.

Margaret was born in Craigmyle, Alta., in 1931 to Tom and Maggie Harris. They lived as family on the McIntyre Ranch, where Margaret was raised. In early adulthood she moved to Lethbridge to work at Eaton’s.

Following her time in Lethbridge, she joined the Canadian Air Force for a few years. After her time in the Air Force, she moved to Pincher Creek, where she became the owner of the Pincher Creek Esso restaurant.

On May 28, 1974, she married Charlie and moved to the farm where she spent the remainder of her life.

There will be a live-streamed memorial service via Zoom on Saturday, Oct. 2, 2021, at 1 p.m. To attend the service, please visit and click the live-streaming link at the bottom of her obituary page.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the charity of one’s choice in memory of Margaret.
