Margaret Isabelle Cole, of Shenandoah, passed away on May 10, 2017. She was born in Edmonton, Canada on February 9, 1925. She graduated from Castor High School and attended Mount Royal College in Calgary, Canada.

Margaret was married to Clarence Ray Cole on March 15, 1944. They were blessed to share 72 years of marriage. All who knew them said they were true soul mates, supporting and loving each other during their time together.

Margaret was the heart of her family. Behind the scene, quietly in her own way, she put others before herself. When asked how she wanted to be remembered, she said as a kind and loving person and she was.

Later in life, Margaret faced many medical challenges and the loss of her beloved husband. She tackled each hurdle with determination and a willingness to continue on. Her family was often surprised that inside this gentle person was such a stoic and brave individual.

Margaret is survived by her daughter, Vickie Long (Gary); their children, Kelsey Long (Jennifer) and Bradley Long (Michelle) and great-grandchildren, Victor, Jadyn and Amber, all of The Woodlands area. Also her daughter, Cheryl Murray (Doug); their children, Trevor Murray (Jenn) and Tyler Murray (Adrienne) and great-grandchildren, Anna, Natalie, Jaxson, Amberly and Carter, all from Calgary, Canada.

Margaret was preceded by her husband, Clarence, her parents and her brother.

A private service was held at Forest Park The Woodlands Funeral Home & Cemetery.
