March 26, 1930 - July 15, 2018
It is with very heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our mother Margaret Stark "Molly" -nee Kirkpatrick. Mom was born in Pouce Coupe, BC and grew up on a farm in Baldonnel. She met our Dad, Bill Stark, at a dance at the Elk's Hall in 1951. They were married in 1953, had three children and resided in Fort St John her entire life before suffering a stroke four years ago while in Prince George. She remained there in order to be close to family.
She is survived by her children Danny (Darlene) Stark, Jacki (Dwight) Stark-MacKay, Trish (Bill) Douglass. Her grandchildren Chris Stark, Mike (Amanda) Stark, Liam MacKay, Sean MacKay, Dryden Douglass, Molly Douglass and Camryn Douglass. Step grandchildren Ryan (Adrienne) Nadalin and Chelsea (Marcel) Vonah. Five step great grandchildren and sister in law Marie Kirkpatrick. Also extended family in Canada, the U.S and Northern Ireland.
She is predeceased by her parents John and Peggy Kirkpatrick, as well as brothers Ken (Anne) Kirkpatrick and Neil Kirkpatrick.
Mom and Dad travelled extensively and some of their fondest memories were made while doing so in their motor home. Mom loved to entertain and enjoyed frequent get togethers with their many friends and family. After dad's passing in 2000 she became involved with the Fort St John Legion where she made many new friends and enjoyed her time there very much.
Mom will be fondly remembered for her quick wit, great sense of humour, love of country music, dancing , the Edmonton Oilers, the Toronto Blue Jays, crossword puzzles, homemade wine and a good game of crib.
She loved Dad, us, and the Peace River country with all of her heart. She thought Fort St John was the greatest place on earth and God help you if you suggested otherwise.
If love could've saved her she'd be with us still.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date in Fort St John.
Memorial donations in memory of our Mom may be made to the Fort St John Hospital Foundation.
