In Loving Memory Of

Margaret Lavina Heath


The family of Margaret L. Heath is saddened to share the passing of their much loved great-grandmother, grandmother, mother, sister, aunt and friend.  After a brief but hard fought illness, Mom passed away in Grande Prairie, AB, on Sunday, July 26, 2015.

Margaret was born in Grande Prairie on December 18, 1930 to Lorne and Janet McLaughlin and spent most of her childhood in Valleyview, AB. In September 1944, the McLaughlin family moved to Whitehorse, Yukon. Margaret loved the Yukon and it was there she married her first husband, raised a family and became involved in politics. After the death of her first husband, (Robert Frigon) she married again, (George Heath). In 1978 the couple decided to move to Grande Prairie. Here, Margaret created a life for her family and again became actively involved in politics as well as serving on many committees.

Margaret was happy in Grande Prairie as she was closer to the family property at Sturgeon Lake and her large extended family. It was at the lake that Mom dearly loved to be. She couldn’t wait for winter to be over and get to the lake. She loved watching the children play and visiting with her brothers/sisters, nieces/nephews and large extended family of cousins and friends. 

Margaret was predeceased by her parents, Lorne and Janet McLaughlin, her brothers, Fred and Leslie, her daughter, Patricia Frigon, her son, Robert Frigon as well as 2 grandchildren.

Mom will be so terribly missed by her daughter, Margie (Russ), her grandchildren, Erin (Trevor), Andrew (Simone), Aslinn (Nick) and recently born great-grandson, Barrett. She will also be greatly missed by her brother, Tom; and her sisters, Irene and Jean, their families; and her large extended family and many friends. The lake will never be the same.

The Memorial Service will be held on Friday, August 7, 2015 at 1:30pm at Oliver’s Funeral Home (10005 107 Ave) in Grande Prairie.

Memorial donations may be made to the Grande Prairie Association for Army Cadets (9003 101 St., Grande Prairie, AB T8V 3C5).
