Margaret Anderson

April 3, 2021
With profound sadness and grief, John Anderson announces the passing of his beloved Margaret Anderson. Margaret passed at 10:50 pm April 3, 2021, in Vernon BC, at home with her husband, John.
Margaret was born in Belleville Ontario and raised in Rednersville, Ont. Born Margaret Rose Redner, Margaret being the 7th of 11 children, had a wonderful
childhood and formative years growing up on the family farm and orchard and working in the family’s grocery store. It was growing up in a large busy house that Margaret learned the importance of sharing her voice, opinion, and above all her love.
Margaret’s early career in Red Deer was as a real estate salesperson. Eventually, along with John, she became a broker and half owner of Century 21 Advantage Realty. Under her leadership Century, 21 Advantage became one of the top offices in all of Canada.
Margaret loved working with her award-winning team of Realtors. Together with John, she taught new Realtors the real estate course. For many, she was also a mentor and a business leader. She loved seeing others prosper and grow.
Margaret was also deeply involved in charitable work such as the Red Deer Women’s Shelter and the Canadian Cancer Society, to name only two.
Retirement took Margaret and John motorhoming around the US and Canada, eventually settling, firstly in Palm Springs and then 8 years in Sun City West, AZ. Margaret developed deep friendships wherever they landed. Some of her hobbies included Bridge, Sewing, and Golf. If there was a social she always looked forward to attending and help. She always appreciated a good celebration.
Margaret is survived by her heartbroken husband John Anderson, sons Duane (Sandy) Galesloot of Vernon, Patrick (De) Galesloot of Red Deer, Daughter Sherry Galesloot of Red Deer, stepson Jeff Anderson(Shannon) of Red Deer, nine grandchildren (Kathleen, Alex, Ethan, Tyler, Logan, Kendra, Parker, Charly, Sarah) five great- grandchildren, brothers Ron (Laura) Redner of Kelowna, Jim (Marie) Redner of Ottawa, sisters Mary (Dick) Todd of Peterborough, Ellie (David) Austin of Grand Rapids, Mich. and dozens of nieces and nephews.
Her love was helping her Realtors and Real Estate, but her passion was her family and a very large group of friends in Red Deer, Vernon, and Sun City West, AZ.
