HOWELL (nee Styrvoky): Margaret, age 89 years, passed away on Monday, April 20, 2020 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre.

Marg will be lovingly remembered by her daughters Roxanne Forsyth (Doug) and Renee Howell (Dean); five grandchildren Ben Forsyth (Jacklyn), Matthew Forsyth (Katherine), Graham Forsyth (Aislinn), Dawn Archer (Ethan) and Ty Archer (Amanda); a very precious great grandson Calvin Forsyth; sister Lillian Arvay, sister-in-law Yvonne Curtis, brother-in-law Len Howell (Shirley) and many nieces and nephews.

Born February 14, 1931, Marg grew up on a farm near Esterhazy, SK. Marg moved to Brandon where she met and married Don Howell who predeceased her in 1995. Marg spent her career working as a NA at the Assiniboine Centre.

One of the most important things to Mom was spending time with her family, whether it was in Brandon, Alberta, BC, or traveling. Mom saw a lot of the world through touring and cruising with friends and family. Mom also enjoyed competitive games like Scrabble, cribbage, golf and going to the Legion meat draw. Mom accomplished two hole-in-ones and averaged 100 plus golf games per season. For 60 years, Mom lived in the same neighbourhood, where she enjoyed many friendships.

A Celebration of Life will be planned at a later date when it is safe to gather together.

Donations in memory of Marg may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, 1379 Kenaston Boulevard, Winnipeg, MB R3P 2T5.

I enjoyed many golf games with Marg over the past 4 summers. She was always happy to be able to spend time in the course and will be sadly missed.

Please accept my sincere sympathy following the loss of Marg! I had the pleasure of working with Marg on maternity years ago and I as well as all the staff loved working with her and hearing stories about her family!She moved on to the the Assiniboine centre and even though we worked on different floors she always had a smile and kind word! Lately we would run into her walking at the university and we laughed when she told us how she started up her snow blower and happily blew out the neighborhood!WOW! Sometimes we had coffee at the mall and every visit made me realize what a beautiful lady she was!Rip Marg and thank-you for being you!

Your Mom and my Mom Lois Carkener where great pals for many years. They had a lot of fun together and I had the pleasure of meeting your Mom many times. We really appreciated that she kept visiting in Mom's time at Fairview and that gave my Mom something to look forward to. Sorry for your loss.

We were saddened to hear of Marg’s passing. Marg and Donnie were great friends of my parents, Jim & Shirley McMurrich for many years. Throughout the ensuing years it was always a pleasure to run into Marg at the golf course and get caught up on family news - both her family and ours - never failing to ask how our kids were doing. It was a treat for George to run into her at the Wheat City Golf Course. A special lady will be truly missed.
