Margaret was born in Surrey, BC to Joseph and Anne Labash. In her teen years she moved to Grand Forks, BC with her parents. Margaret was actively involved with Grand Forks Special Olympics. After her parents passed away, Margaret met Allan, her tall dark handsome prince who swept her off her feet. They were married in 1991 and she proudly became Mrs. Sandner.
In 2005 when her health started to decline, Margaret was moved to West Houston Home in Nelson. She loved to write, read, and listen to 50’s and 60’s rock and roll. Margaret cherished her one on one time with favourite staff, especially to go to Dairy Queen for a chocolate sundae. A celebration of life will be held at West Houston Home, 535 West Houston Street, August 31st at 2pm.
