To Scott, Jeff and Family:

I was deeply saddened to learn of your mother’s death. As she was a dear friend of my sister -Daphne Rees and Lloyd, I had the good fortune of enjoying her company on many occasions over the decades. I remember fondly her animated storytelling and always marveled at her ability to hold a room. All hands always gravitated towards her – largely because of her sharp wit and good humour. As Daphne is currently in poor health I shall take this opportunity to pass along her condolences and heartfelt sympathy as well as that of our family.

Warmest regards,

To the Noseworthy Family,
I met Margaret when I first moved to the South Brook area. She walked frequently and we would stop and chat. Such a beautiful woman. I was saddened when I learned she could no longer go for her walks and further saddened to learn of her death.
RIP Margaret

Scott, Jeff and families, so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. Mrs. Noseworthy was such a joyous person – always had a great big smile and hug for me as a child and up at the cabin with my family.

Jeff, Scott and family, I am saddened by your Mom’s passing. She is away from her earthly pain and in God’s hands. I fondly remember driving from the center of St. John’s to Marg and Roy’s with my father and mother. You knew it was a good day when Dad told us we were going to visit. Marg was the first person to introduce me to banana sandwiches and the joy that was present in your house was infectious. Thanks for the great memories Marg, God Bless and keep you. My sincerest sympathies to you Jeff and Scott,

My friendship with Marg goes back to the 70’s when I took our children to Mt. Pearl Library for her story hour. Later years,when we became neighbours on Gisborne,Marg and I spent much time together, going for long walks and having great chats. Marg and Roy were great neighbours and we will cherish our memories of them. Sending you all our sincere condolences and know you will cherish your memories also.
