My deepest sympathy to Margaret's family. Margaret was my friend and mentor. So many times when I was a new Christian, and had a spiritual question, we would discuss it. Always she would set me straight and back on the path to The Lord again. She was also the best friend a person could ever have.
She is missed so much but I'm delighted that she has gone to meet Him. No more pain. Rest in peace, my friend. See you later.

Still remember the first time I met Margaret as Don walked her home from church. She gave me my first perm when I was 12 and I have so many memories of her faithfulness to her family, the beautiful family she and Don raised together and I am awed at how God has worked in all of their lives because God was so faithful in spite of the loss of their father. She travelled to where ever the family was on her own and continued to allow God to be faithful as she made her way working to provide for herself and family members, loving each new addition. Don was blessed to have her by his side as he entered into ministry and while things were not always easy, God provided. To her family, she truly did her best to be the best she could be and God has honored that. Often thought she should have written a book on how to provide food for a family when you are down to a shoe string. Anything she did, she gave her best. Our whole family was blessed from her example, her beautiful voice, and her determination to honor God. The many memories we shared and many we couldn't, reminds us to keep trusting to the end. Much love to all .

We send our condolences to Marg’s family as we know this is a great loss. My few times with Marg, and times in her home over the years were very special. I learned from her great wisdom, steadfastness, and love for her Lord. Her influence and legacy will live on in all of us. A song comes to mind as I think of her: “May All Who Come Behind Us Find Us Faithful!”
