One of Margaret’s greatest childhood memories was of her parents buying a beautiful Gerhard Heintzman piano. By the age of 17, she was playing for the choir and congregational singing at her church, and she continued to serve in the many churches that she and Bill attended. Margaret enjoyed playing the piano until the last few years of her life. She often played her favourite hymn “It Is Well with My Soul.” Margaret’s children and grandchildren were her greatest joy. She faithfully served her family with love, wonderful cooking, and prayer that they would love the Lord and the church. She lived out her life with the knowledge that “by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not from you; it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8). Margaret died with several of her children spending the day at her bedside. She is now reunited with Bill, her husband of 70 years; her daughter Janice; and four of her younger siblings.
