Please accept our heartfelt condolences respecting the loss of your dear Mother, Mother-in-law, grandmother, great-grandmother & sister.
Margaret was a dear friend who I first met when she joined the soprano section with St. James Choir. She was also our music librarian for many years, a task she fulfilled dutifully & humbly. We enjoyed many great times together throughout the years including anniversary dinners, choir parties to name a few. Having owned a cottage on Crosby Lake, I was unaware until Margaret joined our choir that she & Trevor also had a cottage nearby. Margaret always had a zest for life & I so admired her many skills including her beautiful needlework, she was truly a gifted lady. She had a wonderful sense of humour & enjoyed her daily cups of tea served only in a china cup & saucer.
I'm sure Margaret is happily reunited with her beloved Trevor who she missed dearly. Please know that our thoughts & prayers are with each of you & may your many wonderful memories provide comfort during the days ahead.
Rest in peace, dear friend.
Ace & Dale Halladay,
Gerda Van Wingerden and I took great pleasure in visiting Margaret over the years on behalf of RTO (Retired Teachers of Ontario), Lanark District 29. First, visits were at her home with Trevor on Gore Street, where we enjoyed a wee sherry with them, once at the golf club when we surprised her with flowers for her lunch table, and later in her room at Carolina Suites where we once interrupted a bridge game. She took the interruptions gracefully, and with laughter.
During my initial phone call to set up a meeting, she was very annoyed that I knew her age of 85, while many of her friends did not! That was soon resolved without any hard feelings.
It was delightful to hear Margaret and Trevor's stories (often about their children) and interesting experiences. We have faith that they are happily reunited.
Dear family, I am so sorry for the loss of your Mum. I got to know Margaret well at Carolina. I will miss her determination and her quick wit. It was a privilege getting to know her
Sincerely Karen Wilson
