It is with broken hearts that the family of Margaret announce her sudden passing on Thursday, June 3, 2021 at the age of 54. Beloved spouse and best friend of Mark Harbour for 28 wonderful years.

Proud mom of Michael, Eric (Diandra), and Katie. Predeceased by her parents Frank and Celestina. Margaret will be dearly missed by her in-laws John and Ruth Harbour, and her cousins Sam, Angie, Maria (Chuck), Josey (Bryan), Vince (Lucy), Randy (predeceased Donna), Margaret, Ellena (Brad), Liz, Vince (Gail), Rita (Enzo), Pat (Julie), and Dan (predeceased Angela), and first cousins in Italy, Annalisa, Sergio (Franca), Daniella (Germano), and Amedeo (Santina). She will always be fondly remembered by her cousins, extended family, and many friends in Canada, as well as her relatives in Italy.

Margaret met the love of her life Mark on a night out at the Gown and Gavel, and together they made so many amazing memories, above all the birth of their twin boys and daughter who Margaret adored, and loved unconditionally.

In life, Margaret’s children were her priority and joy. A dedicated mother, she attended all of Eric and Michael’s baseball and hockey games and loved accompanying her daughter Katie to all her dance competitions.

Beyond her family, Margaret loved to spend time with her girlfriends, get away to her cottage in Sauble Beach, and watch her beloved Toronto Maple Leafs. We will all miss Margaret dearly, and will never forget her personality and amazing sense of humour.

“You saved my life. I’ll love you forever”

Margaret was such a fun, passionate person to be around. We are thankful that we got to know her and got to enjoy her company, even for a brief amount of time. We will always remember spending time with her at the Toronto Film Festival and the lake house. Her energy and spirit will live on in our memories forever. Rest in peace, Marg! Love, the Jatnieks.

We are all shocked and deeply saddened by Margaret's passing. I first met her as a work colleague and then our two daughters became best friends. Margaret was always a most genuine and caring person. She was always warm, kind and generous to our family. I sincerely appreciated how positive an influence she was with our daughter.

They say life is a journey and it is never about the destination but rather the paths you take and the people you meet and the kindness you give to each other. Our family was very blessed in our journey to have met Margaret and her family and the kindness and love she gave us. We will miss her but will always cherish her in our memories.
