Obituary: Crawford, Margaret

CRAWFORD, Margaret Ella (nee Low)
April 4, 1928 — Sept. 6, 2017

It is with great sadness the family announces the peaceful passing of Margaret Ella Crawford at Edmonton’s Grey Nuns Hospital. After 89 years of leaving her mark on this world, she died as she lived: on her own terms. Pages could be filled with wonderful memories but Mom always said, “Less is more.” So it’s only fitting we take one of her favourite quotes from the movie Forrest Gump: “And that’s all I have to say about that.”

She will be lovingly remembered by children Donna (Kenny) Taylor, Wendy (Bing) Vanthuyne, Colleen Crawford, Trev (Shauna) Crawford; grandchildren Keith (Sammie) Taylor, Stacey (Trevor) Risling, Graham (Lisa) Taylor, Tara Taylor (Brad Whitter), Kelly (Karen) Taylor, Derek (Susan) Vanthuyne, Kristen (Warren) Fry, Brent (Nicole) Vanthuyne, Amy (Kurt) East, Wes and Dale Lenkewich, Kurt Crawford, Hailey and Meg Crawford and 23 great-grandchildren; Leslie Taylor (brother-in-law), Arthur Morrison (brother-in-law), Marlene Low (sister-in-law), Harold Crawford (brother-in-law), Shirley Crawford (sister-in-law), Allan Crawford (brother-in-law), Roy (Marilyn) Crawford (brother/sister-in-law), and Glenn Crawford (brother-in-law); and too many nieces, nephews and significant people in her life to include.

Predeceased by Alex and Ella Low (parents); Gordon Crawford (husband); Dorothy Moore, Jean Taylor, Kathleen Morrison (sisters); Willie Low (brother); George Crawford, Ralph Crawford (brothers-in-law), Howard Moore (brother-in-law); Janet Crawford, Shirley (Taylor) Crawford, Beth Crawford (sisters-in-law); Murray Crawford (nephew); Ronald, Bobby, Roy Moore (nephews); Ben Crawford (great-nephew) and Maurice (Reec) Bouchard (great-nephew).
