MATHER, Margaret

DECEMBER 15, 1921-APRIL 2, 2021

Margaret passed away peacefully at the age of 99 in Residential Care at Lady Minto Hospital.

Margaret was born in Verdun, Quebec, and was a respected and loved teacher until retirement in 1973. She and her brother Gordon later moved to Salt Spring. Margaret loved to entertain and often had out of town guests as well as frequent dinner parties until her move to Meadowbrook in 2009.

Leaving to mourn and cherish her memory are her cousins David Bellamy (Ana) and Terry Bellamy of Toronto (Kris); cousin-by-marriage Robert Jones of England; her very special students Jack Oldford (Karen) of Abbotsford and his sister Judy Dostie (Guy) of Pointe-Claire who always stayed in touch; good friend Judi Bracher and several other friends from B.C. to Quebec.

Margaret was predeceased by her brother Gordon in 1997, cousins Shirley Bellamy of Toronto in 2013 and Lynn Jones of England in 2021.

I am extremely grateful for the care and support provided for many years by Dr. Crichton and the Residential Care staff at Lady Minto Hospital, especially during this difficult time for everyone.

No service due to Covid. Interment has taken place at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Fulford.

Should you wish, a donation may be made to a charity of your choice.
