Margaret Constance Dragman (nee White), passed away peacefully in her 102nd year at West Vancouver May 05, 2020.

Survived by her children, Vern (Lorna), June (Michael), Renie (John).
She was predeceased by loving husband Ernie in 2000.

Margaret was an avid gardener and lived in the family home in Lynn Valley (still caring for her cat, feeding birds, squirrels, and deer) until October 2014, when she moved to West Vancouver at age 96.

The family would like to thank the wonderful caregivers and staff at Capilano Care Centre who looked after our mother until well past her 101st birthday.

The family plans a private scattering of Margaret's, Ernie's and their beloved cat, Mishka's, ashes.

Anyone who remembers Margaret Dragman may wish to make a donation in her name to the Alzheimer's Society of BC or the BCSPCA.

Dear Mom,
Even though you're gone, you are still part of our lives. Our house is also full of your memories. The photo albums, slides, records, tapes and videos... and the old machines to play them with.

Your early life during the Depression, when your father died, and you had to quit school and go to work in a factory to support your mom, must have been really difficult. But later you were able to finish school and then go to teachers' college and eventually teach in a one-room schoolhouse in Midland, Ontario. That's where Daddy came into your life.

You and Dad made many trips to Europe, especially Romania to visit his relatives. You also took Renie and me on some of those trips to meet our larger family and see the world.

We miss your sense of humour and the twinkle in your eye. If all the deer, birds and squirrels and even the occasional bear that came through your lovely wild garden could speak, they would say they missed you too!

June and Michael

Dear June and Renie, Michael and John,
It was lovely to see Marg's happy face on this site. The flowers remind me of the many times Marg took me on a tour of her amazing garden. I loved it and took home many a "sample" for my own garden. The apples from the ancient tree made the best applesauce and the blackberries the best pies.
We always went up to get the best holly for holiday decorating. We enjoyed many Christmases on Doran. We were always made to feel welcome and part of the family. There was always lots of food and drink. The Dragmans really knew how to have a good time, although getting Marg out of the kitchen and sitting down was a challenge. She was always making sure everyone had enough and then some to take home.
When our daughter Kathleen came along, Marg and her husband Ernie became Grandma Marg and Grandpa Ernie. Marg made a special scrap book for Kathleen that had lots of pictures clipped from magazines. Kathleen loved it. Today we "read" it with our grandchildren and they love it too. We remember the times they spent with our parents over the years with picnics and time at the park. And of course the "date" nights with my Dad and Marg when we went to see Andre Rieu.
The love Marg had for animals inside her home and outside was contagious. They were so important in her life and she clearly passed that on to both of her daughters. We learned a lot too.
We will always remember Marg and Ernie with fondness and affection. We celebrate her long life, well-lived.

Love and condolences, Betty and John
