We Remember

GABOR, Magdolna “Magdi”

Passed away April 21, 2012 at her home in Brandt’s Creek Mews in Kelowna, BC at the age of 72.  She was a loving mother of Theodore and Anita; grandmother to her adored grandchildren: Lisa Marie, Matthew and Karlie.  “Grandma, we will miss you and hold you in our hearts; along with the many memories we shared.”

Born August 31, 1939 in Sepsiszentgyorgy (St. George) Romania, Magdi immigrated to Canada in 1961.  She enjoyed a career of over 26 years with the Kelowna Home Support Society and the Interior Health Authority.  Magdi touched the lives of many clients she loved so dearly.  Our family extends much appreciation for the level of loving care she herself received during the past four years.

Magdi found great joy in the presence of her grandchildren, days in the park being a part of nature, swimming and walks.  Magdi loved animals and they knew and loved her in return.

A Memorial Gathering will be held on Saturday, April 28th at 2:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home Family Centre, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to either of the two causes that were dear to her heart:  The Multiple Sclerosis Society, 230-1855 Kirschner Road, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 4N7 or The Kelowna SPCA, 3785 Casorso Road, Kelowna, BC V1W 4M7.

“You’ve left us with your laughter in the wind and your presence in our hearts.”

    To Magdi’s family: I had the pleasure of meeting her many years ago because she provided home support to both of my grandparents. They truly loved her. She was so kind and caring. She gave my Grandma perms regularly, which I don’t think was in her job description but she knew how much my Grandma appreciated it, and how it made her feel good about herself. She provided my parents with piece of mind knowing that she was looking out for them and giving them the care that is very hard for untrained family members to give. She referred to my Grandpa as “Popsy”! I really don’t think there are too many Magdi’s out there in the health care field! She really was a gem. With Sympathy, The Conway family

  • Patti Skidmore/Emma Castanier says:

    Magdi truly was a gem and quite a character! My daughter and I met her during our visits to David Lloyd Jones with our standard poodle Therapy Dog, Lydia. Magdi just beamed when Lydia came to visit. She truly loved animals, and would accompany all of us up and down the hallways, to pet Lydia, and talk about her day. We enjoyed her stories. She will be missed by many.
    Our condolences, Patti and Emma
