She was the last of her generation of Moens. She will be sadly missed by her many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews. Margaret grew up in the community of Bardo, Alberta. She finished school and went on to Edmonton to extend her education. She later followed her family to BC and worked in Vancouver. She married Ben Knowles and after his death moved to Arizona and California for 5 years before returning to Vancouver. She worked as a private secretary for many years before retiring to White Rock, BC. Margaret was a very fashionable lady who loved beautiful clothes, interior design, traveling and gardening. Thank you to the staff of Laurel Place in Surrey, BC for their wonderful care. Flowers gratefully declined. A private celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
