Margaret “Bubs” Brown 1933 — 2014

Margaret “Bubs” Brown

On the first day of summer, Margaret “Bubs” Brown passed away with loving family at her side.  She was born November 16, 1933 in Vancouver to Peter and Donna Jones.  As an infant she was nicknamed Bubbles by her Dad ~ a name that stuck with her for life because it suited her vivacious personality.

Bubs often said that all she ever wanted was to be a wife and mother and so at the age of 17 when she met and fell in love with “her quiet man”, Keith, her fate was sealed.  They lived their entire married life in and around Kamloops, often in very rustic conditions but always with much love and laughter.  They raised their three children on a firm foundation of love, honor, respect and trust.

Bubs was predeceased by her parents and her brothers Don “Duke” and Jim.

She is survived by her husband of 63 years, Keith, son Jim (Sally) and daughters Kathy (Tom) and Leslie (Gord).  She also leaves four treasured grandchildren, Sean (Liz), Lindsay (Ryan), Allison and Kevin and three great-grandchildren Nicolaas, Hannah and Jonathan.  When first learning to talk, Hannah would phone her Granny BUGS and they would sing silly songs together.  Bubs is also survived by her big sister, Hazel and a wonderful network of nieces, nephews, cousins and many, many friends.

The family would like to give special thanks to the nurses and doctors of Royal Inland Hospital’s 4th floor North.  We were so blessed by the care and compassion this wonderful team gave Bubs and the family.

A Memorial Service will take place Saturday, July 12, 2014 at 2:00 pm at the Kamloops Funeral Home.

Memorial donations may be made to the MS Society of Kamloops.

    Bubs was a caring, positive and entertaining lady. I am a lucky person to have known her.

    My thoughts are with her family.
