Margaret Wilson Aitken

April 19, 1925 – September 28, 2012

Meg passed on as she lived, quietly and peacefully, at her home of the past 9 years with her extended family at Poplar Ridge.

She was born in Innerleithen, Scotland, immigrated to Canada in the mid fifties where she married Bert Aitken in 1958, at Trail. They lived in Warfield for over forty years, making several trips to Scotland.

Meg was predeceased by her beloved husband, Bert; her parents Jean and Jim Scott; aunts, uncles, cousins in Canada and Scotland. She is survived by cousins in Innerleithen, May Fraser and family and Nan Scott, formerly from Australia; also, Bert’s nieces and families in England; locally, cousin and friend Laura Peat Lucin and family and Margaret Jeffels, friend and dedicated visitor.

A warmest thank-you to doctors, nurses, care aides and all the staff and volunteers at Poplar for their wonderful care.

There will be no memorial service by request but Meg will be in our hearts always.

Also, a heartfelt thanks to Al Grywacheski and staff at Alternatives Funeral and Cremation services for their caring, compassionate help at this time.

If you wish, donations may be made in Meg’s memory to the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital Foundation (for Poplar Ridge) 1200 Hospital Bench Road; Trail, B.C. V1R 4M1 and would be appreciated.
