Marg Fergus was born at the Sullivan Top Mine location in Kimberley, BC and lived her whole life in Kimberley within a one mile radius of the mine. She was very active in her younger years. She loved to travel, walk, bowl, golf and cross country ski. After retirement she was often seen in Townsite walking with her dog Tyke, and she always had biscuits in her pockets for her “friends” along the way.
Mom enjoyed bingo, puzzles and crosswords and was an accomplished sewer, knitter and quilter.
Mom worked many years at McDougall Hall then the Bay/Fields. She was known as the beautiful lady with the snow white hair.
Marg was predeceased by her husband, William “Bill” Fergus, her parents, Joe and Rachel Beran, her in-laws Alex and Alice Fergus and brother-in-law Alex Fergus, Jr. She is survived by her six children Bonnie Carter (Jerry), Pat Montgomery (Don), Rae Fergus (Dave), Karen Driediger (Ed), William “Bill” Fergus (Cathy), and Barbara Buchan (Kim); her sister Joyce Best, brother-in-law Robert “Bert” Fergus, 11 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
There will be no funeral service as per our Mom’s wishes. Her ashes will be laid to rest beside our Dad’s at the Kimberley Cemetery.
