They moved to Langley in 1972 and she started working at Langley Memorial Hospital, where she remained until she retired. From the early 70s into the late 80s, Margaret and Tom spent countless hours supporting both John and Jim as they played hockey, soccer, and lacrosse, playing the roles of chauffeur, coach, medic, and fan. A
fter retirement, Margaret remained in good health for two decades, travelling extensively with friends and family, playing golf whenever she had the chance, doing tai chi, bowling, lawn bowling, and reading voraciously.
Predeceased by her husband Tom and brothers Gord and Jim, Margaret is lovingly remembered by her sons John (Linda) and Jim (Patricia), sister Evelyn, brothers Vic (Esther), Dave (Silvia) and Doug, numerous cousins, nieces and nephews, and dear friends.
