Margaret was a wonderful friend to my mother, Delia, in her later years. She would make a point of calling her and keeping in touch. Mom always loved to hear from Margaret. Our family was always very thankful to her for her kindness. Please accept our condolences on the passing of this kind and gracious lady.

John has so many wonderful memories of a kind, loving aunt who always welcomed her “Johnny Martell” with the biggest smile and a hug. Then the stories of old times and the old pictures would be shared and new pictures taken. Visits in L’Ardoise in the summers and to her Halifax home over the years let us spend good times with Joan, Terry and the girls as well.
We will miss her so much. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of her family and friends.

We loved it when Aunt Margaret and Uncle Dominic would come to L’Ardoise in the summer. Nanny would have everyone over for supper and we would get to hear all about their lives and what they had done while growing up.

Condolences to all of Aunt Margaret’s family and friends.
