Alice (Marguerite) Smith

Jan. 11, 1950 – Feb 18. 2012

Our Beloved Marguerite passed away suddenly at Peace Arch Hospital, White Rock. Marguerite was born in High Prairie, Alberta, the 3rd child in a family of six. When she was young the family moved to Sunnyside Road in South Surrey, where she lived until she grew up and left home.

Recently she had lived in Nanaimo. Marguerite had many loved friends, through her Church, through Facebook, and through all walks of life, she made friends easily. She loved to cook and bake, her pies won prizes at Country Fairs. Every Christmas she baked hundreds of cookies, tinned them up and mailed them to her friends and relatives across Canada. She loved all of her nieces and nephews and took a special interest in their lives.

Marguerite is survived by her Mom, Irene Allin, pre-deceased by her Dad, C. Ivan Smith (2010), her partner Michael Sevcov, brothers Michael (Carolynn), Brian (Lois), sisters Marion (Eric), Colleen (Steve), and Sharon (Don), her son Mark Rushton, and her many nieces and nephews.

“Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.”

Interment at Valley View Memorial Gardens.

There will be a Celebration of Life for Marguerite at the Royal Canadian Legion Crescent Branch 240 on Saturday May 19, 2012 from 1-4 PM. Please bring your memories.
