MARGARET PRUDEN, beloved mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully into the presence of her Lord and Savior at Vernon’s Hospice House October 21, 2003 following a year long battle with cancer. Born in Summerland on May 30th, 1919, Margaret spent almost all her life there, except for a time in Vancouver where she met and married her lifelong partner Howard in 1946. While she was sad to leave her dear friends in Summerland, Margaret moved to Vernon in June 2003 to be closer to family. Enjoying independent living at The Victorian, she also discovered a wonderful group of friends who became her extended family. Predeceased by Howard in 1997, Margaret is lovingly remembered by her three children Greg (Barb) Pruden of Kamloops, Jill Lightle of Calgary, Shirley (Gerry) Malnis of Vernon, and five grandchildren Christie and Blair Pruden, Austin and Ian Malnis and Rosalind Lightle. A memorial service will be held at St. Stephen’s Anglican Church in Summerland, BC at 2pm, October 25th. In lieu of flowers, donations in Margaret’s memory may be made to Vernon Hospice Society (3507-27th Ave, Vernon, BC, V1T 1S4).
