GREBINSKY, Margaret Roselyn (née Wagner)
March 23, 1929 — August 2, 2023
It is with gratefulness for a long life, we are sad to announce the peaceful passing of Margaret on Tuesday morning, August 2, 2023, at her care home, Mission Creek Landing in Kelowna, BC.
Margaret was born in Regina in 1929 to Margaret and Adolph Wagner. Her childhood was spent on a farm just outside Regina and the family moved to the city for her and her sisters Evelyn and Teresa to attend high school.
At the age of 19, Marg met the love of her life, Mike. They were married for 62 years until Mike’s passing in 2010. They were very social and most weekends they would host friends and family, always welcoming new friends to the table. Margaret worked in and out of the home and supported Mike in his entrepreneurial endeavors and as a firefighter/fire marshal. They travelled in their RV, spent winters in Arizona and summers golfing at Regina Beach where they moved in 1982.
Margaret was most proud of her family. She spent several years in Calgary with her son Mel and grandchildren Michael and Micayla. Mel passed in 2015. She then moved to Kelowna to be closer to Bonnie, her grandchildren Jo and Chris, and her 4 great-grandchildren. Over the years she loved watching the grandchildren and great-grandchildren play sports, dance, and any activities they were doing.
She was a great cook and loved cooking and entertaining. She loved dressing up and getting her hair and nails done and did so until her last days.
Margaret was fiercely independent, loyal, and strong. She always had advice or wisdom to share often with some humour and always with love. Everyone has funny stories and memories they will treasure from time spent with her.
Margaret was predeceased by her parents; husband Mike; son Mel; and sister Evelyn. She is survived by her sister Teresa; daughter Bonnie (Gary); grandchildren Jo (Bob), Chris (Jen), Michael, Micayla; and her great-grandchildren Cole, Tyler, Cashten, and Brynlee. She also is survived by and remembered by other family members and friends she made throughout her life.
There will be a private internment held at Regina Beach.
