Margaret will be remembered as always happy and smiling. She loved spending time with her family and friends, playing cards, reading, knitting and cooking wonderful meals. Margaret was born in Eatonia, Saskatchewan in 1925. She lived most of her life on the prairies until moving to the Comox Valley in 1987 with her husband to be closer to her family. She is predeceased by her husband Robert George Paynter, daughter Sylvia Jean Williams and brother Gordon Jones. She is survived by brother Brian Jones of Medicine Hat, sisters: Dorthy Sulz of Medicine Hat and Jean Dahl of Kindersley, grandsons: Noel (Jody) Williams of Courtenay and Scott (Cheryl Miskenack) Williams of Campbell River, and son-in-law Reg (Marylin Page) Williams of Courtenay. In lieu of flowers a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation is appreciated. The family would like to thank Dr. Fitzpatrick and the staff of Casa Loma and Ocean View for making Margaret’s later years comfortable and enjoyable.
A Memorial Tea will be held on Wednesday, June 10th at 2774 Allen Avenue in Cumberland from 1:00-4:00 pm, in her memory, all are welcome to attend.
