Spe­cial men­tion to Tran­sit Cape Bre­ton, Mar­garet suf­fered from a de­bil­i­tat­ing con­di­tion re­sult­ing in be­ing Le­gally Blind. Due to the kind­ness of the bus driv­ers, she lived with her con­di­tion quite in­de­pen­dently, which was so im­por­tant to her. She trav­eled on the buses each day and al­ways had lovely com­ments about the driv­ers and how they made her day while speak­ing with them.

Cel­e­bra­tion of Life to fol­low at a later date with pri­vate burial in St. Peter’s, NS.

Do­na­tions in lieu of flow­ers may be made to the Alzheimer’s So­ci­ety, Cancer So­ci­ety, Pal­lia­tive Care of the CBRH or Ev­ery Woman’s Cen­tre.
