Margaret was born to Willem and Winifred Plomp on August 27th, 1926, in La Rivière, Manitoba. She married Daniel on April 20th, 1946.  

Margaret was a loving and supportive wife, mother, and grandmother. Mom and Dad were absolutely perfect for each other, and they had a wonderful marriage for 63 years, not without challenges, but they always put their trust in their Heavenly Father who carried them through many difficult times. Their love for each other was unwavering. Mom and Dad were members of Grant Memorial Baptist Church throughout their married life, and raised their children to honour and love God, which we are so thankful for. Mom was a wonderful cook, and she took great joy in feeding her family and anyone who walked through the door at 240 Egerton Rd. In her later years she became part of the Grant Senior choir which was a wonderful experience for her. She and Dad were greeters at Grant for years, and they were dearly loved by so many people. Mom obviously loved visiting, as when she was a resident at Sterling house, she sat in the entranceway and greeted everyone who walked past.  

She spent her last number of months at Meadowood Nursing Home, which was a significant transition for her, but no matter where she went, she was a ray of sunshine! Whenever we went to visit her, her face just lit up with pure joy and we will miss that smile and welcome so much! Mom was so kind and friendly and always had a wonderful warm greeting for everyone. There was no doubt how much she loved her family, but her most important relationship is the one she had with Jesus! We will miss you so much our precious Mom, but we know we will see you again and that gives us great comfort!

Funeral Service 1:00 p.m. Friday, January 19, 2024 at Bardal Funeral Home, 843 Sherbrook Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba with reception following. Private family Interment to take place prior,  11:00 a.m. at St. Vital Cemetery.
