Margaret (Biz) STRATTON

Margaret (Biz) Stratton

May 22, 1915 – Dec. 11, 2015

Margaret (Biz) Stratton, Salt Spring resident since 1976, passed away on December 11, 2015 in Lynnwood, Washington at the age of 100. 

Biz and her husband Mort lived on Salt Spring for 40 years.  They joined the United Church of Canada and volunteered in the community in many capacities.  Both assisted in the creation of Meadowbrook Retirement Residence in Ganges where they lived for 10 years.

A devoted wife and mother, worldwide traveler and talented artist in every media, Biz possessed an inquisitive mind and could tell you the name of every bird, wildflower and tree she saw.  Her answer to any question was, “Why not?” for she loved new adventures.  Her remarkably cheerful nature drew friends to her and she gladly shared her expertise in many fields. 

She was raised to be of service to others and her passion was to be useful.  Her last words were, “wake me if you need anything.”  What a bright, shining spirit she was!
