They spent their later years in Ladner and Tsawwassen BC.

Auntie Margaret was always so much fun to be with. She was jolly, smart, and loved a challenge. I’ll never forget the day that she beat me by 300 points in Scrabble! Our best family times were when we all got together in St. Laurent or St. Bruno to celebrate birthdays or holidays.

We shared a special bond and I will miss her so much. She showed me that the only way to live life is with joy and love. She was known as the party girl, but she was also smart as a whip and had incredible knowledge of the English language, which made winning at scrabble near impossible. I think of her daily and often recite her euphemisms, my favourite being “If you don’t use it, you lose it.” Love you Nannie xoxox

I have very fond memories of growing up on Bedford across from the Speller family and enjoyed seeing and talking to her. I remember how hard she worked and yet always had time to stop and chat, always with a smile.
Our sincere condolences, Brian and Carol McGill

I vividly remember Marg and Harry when they were our neighbours across the street in St. Bruno. Marg was always there for you as a friend and there were many times we shared our friendship. She was the life of the party and there was never a dull moment when she was around! Al and I were devastated when they moved to BC but happy for them to be near family.
My deepest condolences to the family. I have many happy memories to remember her by. Sincerely, Fay Neil
