Irene, of Courtenay, passed away at St. Joseph’s Hospital on Thursday, March 12th, 2009, aged 74.

In her leisure, Margaret enjoyed the Clogging Group in Nanaimo and took every opportunity to go ballroom dancing, dressing immaculately for the occasion. She was a beautiful seamstress and knitter and was very adept with a paint brush and drawing pencils. Margaret had a keen eye and enjoyed sharing a well-made (Bombay) Martini with her friends.
