Cherished mother of Annette and her husband, Wayne Musselman, Eleanor and her husband, Peter Howelett, Dianne and to Cheryl and her husband, Jack Martin.

Marg was an employee of the Bank of Montreal in Hespeler, Ontario while raising her family there and was an active member of the United Church in Hespeler. Marg's love of music followed her in retirement when she joined the Sauble Beach Community Choir. Marg was an avid gardener, knitter, quilter and pet lover. She was an accomplished seamstress, making all our childhood clothes as well as our graduation and wedding gowns. She was an accomplished cook and baker---- our mother was the original Martha Stewart as there was not a thing she couldn't create in the kitchen. Our home was always filled with humour, love and support. We will miss you dearly mom. Rest in peace. Love your family.


The family would sincerely like to thank the Meaford Long Term Care facility and their employees for the great care mom received over the years there, especially through some trying times. You people are wonderful. We thank the Grey Bruce Health Center for their compassion and the great care you people provide. And to the Downs and Son Funeral Home---- your genuine caring and thoughtfulness are truly appreciated by our family during a difficult time. Thank you.
