Marg touched the hearts and lives of many with her warm and welcoming nature and her loving smile. She worked hard and had many accomplishments in her life, but what she was most passionate about was her family and her home that she and Raymond built together, to raise their family, teach them life skills, teach them pride in what they do and have accomplished and, most of all, how to love, be loved, be kind and respect others. She loved to garden – vegetables and flowers – and excelled at it. She could cook and bake to please the gang and she could sew just about anything you had in mind.
Marg will be greatly missed by her family and friends and all who knew her. She touched many lives with her caring ways.
Visitation to celebrate Margaret’s life will be held from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 6, 2023 at the Davey-Linklater Funeral Home in Kincardine. The memorial service will follow at 1 p.m., with Ann Maycock as celebrant.
Memorial donations to Huron Shores Hospice or Kincardine Community Health Care Foundation would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy.
