Margaret passed away peacefully, Nov 16, 2023 at the age of 65, after a brief yet brave battle with cancer, with her close cousins Susan and Natalie by her side.
Having lived and worked in Corner Brook her entire life, Margaret had met many friends and coworkers in her various jobs over the years, including her 20 year career with Oceanex.
Margaret's love of nature was evident in her beautiful handmade original artisan pieces;many of which she gifted to family and friends. Her talent was truly amazing.
Margaret will be forever loved, missed, and remembered by her cousins; Joanne Veinott, Susan Anderson, Geoff Veinott, Natalie Specker, Doug Cook, Wendy Mills, Tracey Taylor, and their families.
