Marguerite Celine Brounstein

December 11, 1941 – February 22, 2021
The family of Marguerite Brounstein is sad to announce her sudden passing at her Langley home, Monday, February 22, 2021.
Marguerite was born December 11, 1941 in Mississauga, Ontario to Gert and Lorne Chaput and moved to Vancouver with her loving husband Sam in 1964.
They later settled in Brookswood where they raised their family, Bridget and Murray.
Marguerite worked at Dueck’s on Marine and later as a pollster for Black Press and was an instructor at Hughes School of Retailing. She sometimes worked at the PNE in the summer, where she ran the Crown and Anchor game and demanded that her customers be civil and refrain from swearing. They minded her, implicitly.
A charter member of Langley Association for Children with Learning Disabilities, Marguerite was a strong advocate for their literacy and a familiar face at School Board and PAC meetings. Marguerite played cards on Wednesdays, went to Aquafit twice a week and loved walking her dogs with her Brookswood friend,May Barnard.
Her faith was important to Marguerite, as she attempted to attend services at St. Joseph’s Parish Church in spite of her growing difficulties with mobility.
Marguerite looked forward to summers at Golden Lake, close to Killaloe, Ontario, where she vacationed with her late brothers, Dan and Bill’s families who also owned homes on the lake. Swimming off the paddleboard boat was her favorite activity next to sitting on the deck and socializing.
Marguerite was predeceased by both her parents and her brothers. She leaves to mourn her husband Sam and children Murray and Bridget, brothers-in-law Phil (Carol) and Ray Brounstein, sisters-in-law Karin, Shiela and family, and Jenifer and family, and countless nieces, nephews and friends both in BC and Ontario.
Services to be announced at a later date.Obituary
