MORTIFEE, Margaret Anderson (1921-2005)
Angel 'Incognito'; Undercover
Bodhisattva; Une Grande Dame...
"Marga', born in Bloomfontein, South Africa on January 19th, 1921, made her transition to the other side surrounded by her five children and loved ones at 6: 10 p.m. on Monday, December 12th, 2005 after a thankfully brief illness with cancer.
Born of Scottish parents, Marga was raised in the Orange Free State in South Africa. A volunteer Corporal in the South African Army during World War 2, this "Canteen Cutie" served primarily in Egypt, driving 5-ton lorries and contributing to a variety of other duties. At war's end, she met and married Bill ('Monty') MORTIFEE (deceased October 1st, 1998) in Pretoria, South Africa. As the wife of a Member of Parliament, she lived half time on a sugar cane farm in Zululand and half time in Cape Town. There she had four daughters (Margaret, Ann, Mary and Jane). In 1956 the family immigrated to Vancouver where she then had a son (Peter). She volunteered for a number of organizations. She had a keen interest in modern history and current events. She loved to read, particularly biographies. She was a supporter of the arts and innumerable humanitarian charities. In her later years she was thrilled to finally take up the art of painting.
Marga was a woman of extraordinary kindness, compassion and generosity. Her greatest devotion was to diminishing the suffering of others. Nothing gave her greater satisfaction and joy than knowing that those she cared about were well. Her primary passion was her family and her dearest loved ones. She had true empathy with an unusual capacity to listen and an authentic interest in people's lives. Her outrageous and irreverent sense of humour endeared her to all who met her.
Mum/Granny is survived by her five children Margaret MORTIFEE (Julien-Jacques SABY,) Ann MORTIFEE (Paul HORN,) Mary SIMONIN (Mark DRABOT), Jane MORTIFEE, Peter MORTIFEE (Nancy FISCHER), and her eight grandchildren Georges BOIS, Robert BOIS, Dora-Jane SIMONIN, Luke SIMONIN, Devon MORTIFEE, Jessica BIRCH, Lauren MORTIFEE and Claire MORTIFEE.
It is with both grief at the loss of such a beacon of light and yet profound gratitude for all the blessings she bestowed on so many of us, that the family invite those of you whose lives were touched by her to come and join in a celebration of her life on Sunday, December 18th, 2005 from 12 to 3 p.m. at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club (Jericho Club House). Marga requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Salvation Army.
