We Remember

SHUMAY, Margaret

January 1, 1970 — January 1, 1970

The family of Margaret Shumay wishes to announce her passing on April 11, 2020 at Hospice House in Kelowna, BC at the age of 92.

Margaret “Marg” was born in Avonlea, Saskatchewan on May 5, 1927 to John and Monica Luknowsky. The Luknowsky family moved to Gage, Alberta and then on to Kelowna BC, where Margaret met and married Dan Shumay in 1949. They purchased an orchard, built a house and continued to live in Oyama for the next 50 years and raised their 4 children. After retirement, they moved to Winfield, and after Dan’s death, Margaret moved to Lake Country Manor where she has resided for the last 12 years. Marg, along with her husband, Dan, were long-time residents of Oyama (now Lake Country) where she was involved in many community organizations and activities throughout her life.

Marg is predeceased by her parents, John and Monica Luknowsky, and is the last of her generation of beloved brothers and sisters. She is also predeceased by her husband of 55 years, Dan (2004), her daughter, Cynthia Staicue (2006), her son Jeffrey (1985) and her son-in-law, Al “Scotty” Deans (2017).
She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter, Karen Deans; her son, Bruce Shumay; her grandchildren Alfie Deans, Jennifer Jebb (Jay), Andrew Deans, Ryan Staicue (Jessica), Corey Staicue; and her great-grandchildren Joshua and Jordyn Deans and Aiden and Ashton Staicue; and extended family and good friends.

The family would like to thank the staff and residents for their care and love while residing at Lake Country Manor and to the staff at Hospice House in Kelowna where her last days were spent in comfort and peace.

It was Marg’s request that there be no funeral or memorial service and ask that those whose lives she touched, take a moment to reflect on their memories and remember her in your own special way. Arrangements are in the care of Springfield Funeral Home in Kelowna. If you wish to send a condolence, post photos or share a memory, please scroll down the page to the area called “Condolences.”
