April 20, 1925 – June 25, 2015
We regret to announce the passing of Margaret Visser at Creekside Residence.
She was predeceased by her husband John Visser. Margaret is survived by her brother Jaap who lives in Holland; her sons George Visser (Catherine), Lute / John Visser (Claire); grandchildren Dustin, Nicole, Laura; great grandchildren Brianna, Colton and several nieces and nephews in Holland.
Margaret and John met during the war and were married as their town was liberated by the Canadians in 1945. Margaret and family immigrated to Canada from the Netherlands in 1956, moved to Burnaby where she started by cleaning houses. John worked as a laborer. In no time Margaret worked at the Royal Bank. John started with Shop Easy grocery stores and became a manager. In 1965 they moved to Mica Creek where he managed the Co-Op and she became Post Mistress. They moved to Vernon in 1972. She was a member of the Royal Purple for approximately 40 years.
Those friends wishing to pay their respects to Margaret may do so at a Celebration of Life at 9708 Eastside Road in Vernon on July 11, 2015 between 2:00 and 3:00 pm. In lieu of flowers you may make a donation to the Parkinson Foundation.
