Please accept our sincere condolences on the passing of your sister, Margaret. Thinking about you at this sad time.

Our deepest condolences on Margaret’s passing. My husband remembers her being his Kindergarten teacher on Bell Island (Miss Butler). We both have fond memories of her as fellow parishioners of St Mark’s, a frequent walker in our neighbourhood and as mutual friends of Dr and Mrs F W Peacock. She was always pleasant and smiling . A lovely lady.

A lifetime of memories of a cousin who shared her genealogy passion long before it was popular; who loved and cared for my aging mother and godmother; who instigated many a family singalong; and managed to play a central role in the lives of her many siblings, nieces and nephews. Hold fast the memories.

To the Ryan and Butler families,
Sending our condolences on behalf of the entire Power family as we were sad to hear about Mrs. Ryan’s passing. We’ve lots of lovely memories of Wally and Marg laughing during card games on Marigold Pl with our Mom and Dad, Bride and Gerry. We will keep them in our thoughts and prayers.

Jack and I are sending our heartfelt condolences to Barb and her large extended family in the passing of her beautiful sister, Marg. We’ve never met Marg or her husband Wally but heard many wonderful things from Barb., her constant advocate., Even though Barb left NL, first living in Ontario and then in British Columbia, Marg was an integral part of Barb’s life. Marg was a great example to her younger siblings. She was talented; a wonderful pianist and singer. She was a loving aunt to her nieces and nephews and her grand nieces and nephews. She will be missed. . RIP

Thinking of Margaret’s family as you mourn the loss of your loved one and want to convey our deep condolences to all of you. To lose a sibling is. likened to losing a piece of one’s self and is never easy but precious memories will keep her ever near and dear to your hearts. May she Rest In Peace and Rise to Glory.
