Margaret Davidge (nee Butler), age 79, passed away peacefully on Friday, March 4, 2022, in Calgary, AB. She was born November 19, 1942, in Belleville, Ontario, to Frank and Ellen (Sprung) Butler. After graduating high school, she trained as a Registered Nurse in Belleville and began a long career caring for others, working for the most part with seniors until she retired in 2004.
She moved to out west in 1976, at first to Winnipeg, MB. She also lived in Dauphin and Brandon before returning to Winnipeg in 1992. In 2016, she moved to Calgary to be closer to her daughter and family. She actively maintained family ties and the many friendships she made wherever she lived, by travelling, and above all, through the telephone. She was quick to make friends and is remembered by them not only as a bright spark who laughed and was a lot of fun, but also as someone who cared deeply about them.
Margaret often said, "Life is an adventure." She faced many challenges in her life but overcame them with strength and good humor. She was strong willed and determined to live life to the fullest, despite Parkinson's disease and other health issues, and always remained young at heart.
Margaret will be greatly missed. She is survived by her two children, Marianne (Patrick) Keogh and Michael Davidge (Jennifer Covert); her grandchildren, Ryan, Hayden, Nolan, and Bryn Keogh; the father of her children Stephen Davidge; her sisters, Judy (John) Hill, Melanie (Robert) Barnes, and Jacqui (Mark) Buchholz, and her nieces, nephews, and friends.
Margaret's life will be celebrated in Winnipeg at the Charleswood United Church in the afternoon of June 24, 2022. Condolences, memories, and photos may be shared and viewed at
