Margaret was born in Hanover, Ontario and that little town remained her home for the next 80 years. She married, raised her family, became a successful businesswoman and served in her church and community. In early 2001, Margaret moved to Chilliwack to live with her son Jonathan and his family.
Margaret was an incredible woman whose love for her family and friends took priority in her life. She will always be remembered for her generosity, her strength, her sense of humour and her love of life. Those whose lives she touched remember her encouragement and practical support.
Her family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to the wonderful staff at the Waverly for their special kindness and loving care of Margaret over the past three years.
A celebration of Margaret’s life will be held in the chapel of Henderson’s Funeral Home on Wednesday, April 30, 2008 at 2 p.m.
