Margaret Jardine
January 18th, 1933 - Thursday, March 26th, 2020

Margaret McCullough Jardine (Marg) was born on January 18, 1933 in Lacombe, Alberta to William and Pretoria Jardine of the Experimental (Research Station) Farm. At 13 years old, she moved with her family to a farm east of Lacombe and attended school in town. As a young adult, she started her career at a telephone office and then later tried a variety of jobs until settling in Calgary; where she had a lengthy career in bookkeeping for many small and large businesses.

Marg met the love of her life, Leo Hancock, while in Calgary. She lived, for over 50 years, in her beloved community of Inglewood, near the Calgary Zoo, until her passing. She and Leo enjoyed their weekend lake lifestyle, with their many friends, on the Shuswap and Kimbasket lakes. She also cherished her friends in Calgary who exercised and offered support to each other.

Marg will be remembered for her willingness to help friends and family, to ‘tell it like it was’ and for her ability to share a great story. Marg was a strong woman who overcame life’s challenges, she was fiercely independent, extremely loving and she had a quick wit up until her passing on March 26, 2020.

Left to mourn are her brother Dave Jardine (Lacombe) and sister Jean Jardine O’Neill (Eureka, MT); nieces and nephews Bill Sharp (Vancouver), Debbie Sharp-Cooper(Gull Lake), Doug Sharp (Red Deer), Willa Adams (Barrhead), Blaine Otto (Lacombe), Judy Otto-Frank (Red Deer), Jim Mitchell (Lethbridge), Shirley Mitchell (Calgary), Dave Jardine Jr., Sandy Jardine, Ted Jardine (all of Lacombe) and Don Jardine (Red Deer) along with their spouses and the many grand nieces and nephews.

Marg was predeceased by her lifelong partner Leo Hancock, her parents, Bill and Pretoria (Sis) Jardine, her sisters Pat Sharp, Enid Otto, and Willa Mitchell, and her grand-nephew Gordon Mitchell.

A private ‘Celebration of Life’ will be held with family at a later date and per her wishes there will be no formal service.
