To the Wartnaby family
My sincere condolences Tracey and to all family members.
Your mother was a lovely gentle lady with a laugh I will never forget.
As her accountant for many years, we became friends and she often shared a few stories of her past with me.
I am sure she will be lovingly missed by all who new her.

Margaret and I spent many mornings chatting over coffee. She was a beautiful and gracious lady. She will be missed. All my best to her family.

The events of the last few months are slowly receding and making way for the true memories Ma has created with our family. She was a wonderful grandmother to my children and they are better people today for the time they have spent with her.
As a mother -in-law she was funny, easy going and game for any activity we put her through. Her high pitched laugh, her sharp British accent and her willingness to fit in with anything going on will be sadly missed. She also0 had a great signing voice and In the nineties my mom would pick her up once a week to go and sing with the Keenagers. My fondest memories include the Christmas morning mayhem of our children ripping gift wrapping from under the tree, sharing a glass of wine (or three) with her and long chats by the fireplace on cold evenings. Good by Ma. Thank you for your kindness, generosity and for raising the amazing daughter that I will be spending the rest of my life with.

I have exceptional memories of Margaret as a child. I used to love and go and visit her while she was working at the Macintosh and Watts store in the Mall. She was always so pleased to see me. I can't think of "anything" at all to say negative about Mrs. Wartnaby. She was a very caring, soft spoken, gentle and an exceptionally good woman. I also had a great time with her at her daughter Tracey's wedding. Mrs. Wartnaby was a blast! I am very sorry to hear that she has passed away but I cherish my wonderful memories of her always and send my love to her family above all.
