For the last year she had lived at Westminster House in South Surrey. Her family is thankful to the staff for their caring assistance. Margaret is survived by her son Walter Hansell and daughters Sharon Hammond and Judy Perkins. She has ten grandchildren and nineteen great – grandchildren. Margaret was born November 1, 1925 in Vancouver, British Columbia. She married Herbert W. Hansell who predeceased her October 19, 2009. Margaret had four sisters, among whom Eva Smith is still living. During most of her life Margaret was a devoted homemaker. After her children married, she worked for a time in bookbinding. With her husband Herb she became a committed member of Ruth Morton Baptist Church, serving as a Sunday School leader, choir member, children’s choir director, camp ministry, and missions supporter. She demonstrated continued love for and interest in her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and their visits in her later years gave her great joy and comfort. Herb and Margaret were members of the White Rock Baptist Church. Her memorial service is scheduled for White Rock Baptist Church, 1657 140th Street, Surrey, BC (October 28, 1:30 pm).
