Obituary of Margaret Jean Pardy


Margaret Jean

1936 - 2019


This is a story of Margaret Jean
She left her home at just 17
First child of seven 3 boys 4 girls
Life was busy in Margaret's world
With meals to cook and pots to clean
There was barely time for school or dreams
But strong and smart

And with Crowley girl looks
It was off on the train to Corner Brook
Nursing the sick would be her trade
And she'd build a life with the money she made
Life was good, thought it couldn't be finer

Then she met her man in the city diner
Right away and with just one glance

She knew she had to take that chance

With all the others hanging around
No hesitation he sat right down
And introduced himself to her
And quick as a wink they went off in a blur
His name was George
He was strong and kind

He wasn't about to change his mind
He worked hard for a living
He drove a truck
Now he met his girl, so was his luck

As time went on, they were married with kids

Oh, the things together they did

There were friends and family

Troubles and sorrows

Three squares a day and planning tomorrows

Life moves on with spectacular speed

Somehow providing all they would need

Twists and turns, wisdom gained

Pleasures provided along with pains

All the things that life entails

Leads all of us down familiar trails

Frivolous thoughts fade with time

But love grows strong amongst the gentle and kind

Now Margaret knows that love is the key

And what we control is all we should heed

For the day will come we are no more

And the love you give comes back 10 times more

There awaits in heaven a place for us all

To live again and answer the call

The call to return from whence we came

Where love lives on and the heart is tame

Dear Wife and Mother

We love you so

It pains our hearts

To see you go

but we'll see you again

In heaven, it's true

For when you're true to love

Love's true to you
