It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Margaret, quietly in her sleep at home at the age of 89. She was born and raised in Nanaimo. Predeceased by her husband, Wilford (Red) White, later by her second husband, Larry Prestwood.

Margaret is survived by her loving sister Gene Paulson: daughter, Diana MacLeod (Mike); grandsons: Gord (Shelley), Darcy (Donna), Troy (Linda), Randy (Crystal) and Ken; great grandchildren: Devon, Dionne, Brittany, Jenna, Evan and Robert.

She will be sadly missed by her family and friends and according to her wishes, there is no service.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Nanaimo Kidney Foundation or the Nanaimo SPCA would be greatly appreciated.

I give you this one thought to keep, 

I am with you still, do not weep. 

I am a thousand winds that blow, 

I am the diamond glint on the snow. 

I am as sunlight on ripened grain, 

I am the gentle autumn’s rain 

When you awaken in morning’s hush. 

I am the swift uplifting rush

of quiet birds in circled flight, 

I am the soft stars that shine at night. 

Do not think of me as gone, 

I am with you still in each new dawn.

Sands ~ Nanaimo
