Born in Rugby, England, Margaret was the youngest of seven children. She emigrated to Canada with her family in 1927 and settled in a farming community on the Niagara Peninsula in Ontario.
Margaret married Michael on July 28th, 1945 in Ottawa, Ontario. They moved to the west coast and resided in Vancouver, Chemainus, Victoria and Kamloops. Later in life, Margaret moved to Comox to be closer to her family.
As matriarch of the family, Margaret was the last of her generation. Loved by her family and all who knew her, she was warm, gracious and kind and possessed a smile that would light up a room.
