Margaret Anne Coughlin (nee Sturgeon)

December 6, 1943 – January 19, 2019
Margaret Anne Coughlin (nee Sturgeon) passed away quietly in the early morning of Saturday, January 19, 2019, surrounded by her family. She was born December 6, 1943 in Chilliwack, BC and will be laid to rest in Burns Lake Cemetery in Burns Lake, BC at a small graveside gathering on Wednesday, February 6, 2019 at 3 pm.

She is survived by her loving children; Darlene and Dale Reimer (daughter and son- in-law), Michael and Wanda Williams (son and daughter-in-law), Billie-May and Lawrence Fast (daughter and son-in-law), Richard John Henderson (son) as well as her brothers Dave and Beverly Sturgeon (sister-in-law), and Bill Sturgeon.

She is loved dearly by her grandchildren, nieces and nephew as well as their families and the many friends she has made over the years. She is predeceased by her parents, Edith and Clifford Sturgeon, her sister-in-law Dorothy Sturgeon and uncle, Nev Sturgeon.

Her farm near Broman Lake was her first love, where her children as well as their families spent so much time living on and exploring the land. She worked at the cafeĀ near there, enjoyed playing bingo in Burns Lake as well as playing cards at Rose Lake. She will be fondly remembered for always speaking her mind without batting an eye.

The family wishes that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Overlander Residential Care, in Kamloops, BC who lovingly cared for her the last 5 years of her lifetime. Thank you to her Care Team for your kindness throughout her last years.
