Margaret Angelynne Wall
April 13, 1947 ~ October 14, 2011
It is with profound sadness that we announce Angelynne’s passing after a short battle with cancer on Friday, October 14, 2011.
Angelynne was born in the Gretna, MB area and attended the Mennonite Collegiate in Gretna. She followed her calling to become a teacher, teaching in Gretna for 2 years and in Winnipeg (St. Boniface SD) for 32 years, as well as in CFB Baden, Germany for 3 years. She loved her work as well as the wonderful relationships with the Early Year Teams of the many schools in which she taught. She met the love of her life in January 1984, and they continued to travel, driving their vintage cars whenever they could and she became a mother to her new found family. Together they shared a life of adventures and laughter and were married on July 3, 2011. She retired from teaching in 2003 and moved with Terry to the Creston Valley (Wynndel) in the Kootenays in 2005. They spent winters at Sky Valley Resort in the Palms Springs area. Angelynne enjoyed her new community in Creston, singing in the Blossom Valley and Presbyterian choirs, playing scrabble, attending concerts, swimming and meeting the wonderful people of the valley.
Angelynne is predeceased by her parents David and Mary Wall of Gretna, MB, brother Armin Wall, and sister Ellie Cmela.
She is lovingly missed by her life partner and husband Terry Kereluk of 27 years; her stepchildren Shawna Keehn (Rob), Daryl Kereluk (Amber); three grandchildren, Ashley and Hannah Keehn, and Sreanna Koche-Kereluk; brother George Wall (Frieda) Winnipeg; sister Marlene Plett (Altona) and sister-in-law Iris Wall (BC).
