We Remember

ENGEL, Margaret “Grace”

Grace passed away on July 17, 2023, surrounded by family, at the age of 91.

She is survived by her children Lynne and Larry (Goldie-Anne); grandchildren Aaron (Veron), Adriene (Jayson), Cara, and Curtis (Dana) and their mother Merle; great-grandchildren, Braxson, Uzien, Vashtee, Colby, Brooklyn, Nolan, Emily and Robyn; her sister Shirley, sisters-in-law Edith, Martha, and Sally and many dear nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband of 68 years Allen; parents Elvyn and Maggie; brother Gerald and her sister Audrey.

Grace was born in Wolseley, Saskatchewan in 1931 to Elvyn and Maggie Lander. She was a prairie girl for a large part of her life, and it was on the prairie that she raised her family, kept the household running, and did the books for her husband Allen’s trucking company. Grace and Allen moved to Kelowna upon retirement, where she enjoyed canning, juicing and dehydrating all the delicious Okanagan fruit. She will be remembered as the Queen of Christmas, for her infectious giggle, huge heart, and her determination to feed everyone. There wasn’t anything Grace couldn’t make, except pancakes.

She is deeply missed and will never be forgotten.
