VALENTINE, Margaret. “Maggie” Eileen

May 17, 1923 to January 24, 2014. Born Margaret Eileen Wallace in Warner, Alberta, Maggie passed away peacefully on January 24, 2014, with her daughter by her side. Maggie was predeceased by her first husband Jack Cooke and second husband Victor Valentine. She will be sadly missed by her daughter, Penny Dalton (Tony), son Randy Cooke and his girls, Melinda (Neil) and children – Owen, Taylor and Jordan, Dana (Wes), Jaimie (Jurian) and Joanna (Graham), plus her brother, Jim Wallace of Medicine Hat and his family. Maggie was a prominent member of the Canadian curling scene. From 1965 to 1966 she was President of the National Ladies Curling Association and was President of the BC Ladies Curling Association in 1967. She also represented BC in the Canadian Curling Championships – “Diamond D” – in 1966. In recognition of her services to the sport, she was inducted into the Canadian Curling Hall of Fame in 1986. Maggie was a tireless volunteer for Senior Support Services in South Surrey, donating her time to train others to help keep seniors in their own homes. In this position she made hundreds of phone calls each week to other seniors. The family would like to send their appreciation and thanks to the staff at West Shore Laylum in Ladner for their care, support and love to Maggie during her last few years. There will be a private family gathering to celebrate Maggie’s life. In lieu of flowers, Maggie would appreciate donations to the CKNW Orphans’ Fund
