Margaret (Meg) E.Y. Crane


We regret to announce the passing of Meg Crane January 14, 2012 at the Vernon Hospice. She is survived by her children Sheila (Ed) McGinnis, Allan (Wendy), Sandy (Petrina Gregson), Jocelyn (Tim) Dalin and nine grandchildren. Meg was born March 24, 1920 in Calgary, Alberta. Her parents moved to Nelson, British Columbia. During her early years she took piano and violin lessons and received her degree from the Royal School of Music London, England. After graduation from Grade 12 she took training as a legal stenographer. She worked at various locations in Nelson including Cady Lumber where she met Percy Crane. They were married in 1947 and moved to Kamloops. There they raised 4 children. Mum continued her music career with concerts and teaching. She played with the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra for more than 26 years and then worked with the O.S.O. volunteers. As well as the music she enjoyed reading and fishing and camping with Percy and family. Mum was predeceased by her parents in 1966 and 1970 as well as her husband in 2003. The family would like to thank Dr. Gavin Smart for his care of Mum over 16 years. Friends are invited to join the family for a Celebration of Life to be held at the Vernon Community Music School (Smith House 1705- 32 Avenue Vernon, B.C.
