January 2, 1934 – February 13, 2021
Together Again ~ It is with deep sadness that we announce Margaret’s passing early Saturday morning, February 13, 2021. Margaret passed in her home at the age of 87.
Margaret lost her husband Patrick Dance in 1990 and did not marry again. She survived that loss but a piece of her was always with him.
The family would like to thank the Thursday Hikers for sharing their thoughts and memories of her. She could indeed tackle a cheeseburger and win into her eighties. I know she cherished the time she had with them and still joined the group for lunch when the walks became difficult for her.
She was also an avid bowler for many years and curled in the past as well. She enjoyed early evening walks and loved the seawall, Neck Point and Piper’s Lagoon.
Perhaps unknown to many she also possessed a musical talent. Like many girls of her generation, she learned to play the piano while young. She could still pick out and transcribe the notes much later in life to give her boys a new song to play on the guitar.
Family always came first for Margaret and three great-grandchildren were her pride and joy these last few years.
She is survived by her sister Jean in Kelowna; two sons, Mike and John; Lisa, her daughter-in-law; two grandchildren, Jack and Tom, and their spouses, Honey and Kiley; and three great grandchildren: Blake, Avery, and Jerome.
The family wants to thank her doctor, the emergency workers who helped in a couple of crises, and the nurses at NRGH, who might remember her pulling out the catheter, disconnecting herself and going for a stroll in the hallway when she had pneumonia a few years ago.
She will be missed.
There is no service planned due to Covid restrictions.
