Margaretha Johanna Wallace, 81, of Moncton, passed away peacefully with her loving husband Jim at her side, on Wednesday, August 3, 2022 at the Moncton Hospital. Margaretha was born in Utrecht, Netherlands to the late Hubertus and Petronella (Tak) Bouma.

She immigrated to Canada in 1952 and spent her first 5 years in Bathurst, before moving to Fredericton where she would meet her future husband Jim.  

As a native of the Netherlands, Margaretha had a natural love of flowers.  In 1974 she opened Champlain Florist as one of the original tenants of Champlain Place and later moved the business to a heritage home on the corner of Cross Street and Elmwood Drive. Immensely talented and artistic, she left an impression, both on her customers and on her staff. 

A lover of the open air, water and sunshine, Margaretha cherished spending time at the cottage in Grand Barachois. She and husband Jim spent many winter holidays in the Caribbean and enjoyed great parties and photo sharing at the cottage with their group of friends. 

She was a wonderful wife, mom, Oma, sister and friend. We have lost a piece of ourselves but, we know that she will always be with us. We will look for her in a pretty flower, a colourful bird, and a beautiful sunset.     

"Goodnight Liefje"

She will be sadly missed by her husband James "Jim" Wallace of 58 years; her children John Wallace of Moncton and Cyndi Wallace Carney (Jason) of Grand Barachois; her cherished grandchildren Melanie Wallace, Maddison and Alexandra Carney; her sisters Catharina Christie and Johanna Wedge; sisters in- law Josee Bouma, Margaret Hayes (Daryl), and Barbara Cormier (Jerry), as well as many nieces, nephews and extended family.

In addition to her parents, Margaretha was predeceased by her brother Adriaanus and sister Elizabeth, her brother in-law Bill and sister in-law Sandra.  

Visitation will be held from Fergusons Funeral Home, 1657 Mountain Rd. Moncton NB, (858-1995) on Monday, August 8, 2022 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.

A Service to celebrate and honor Margaretha’s life will be held on Tuesday, August 9, 2022 at 11:00 am from Fergusons Funeral Home Chapel. A reception will take place in the Funeral Home Reception Centre followed by interment. If so desired, a memorial in Margaretha’s name can be made to Friend's of the Moncton Hospital.
