Margaret Jean HAND

Margaret Jean passed away peacefully on September 25, 2006 at the age of 91. Margaret is survived by Steven, her devoted and loving husband of 70 wonder­ful years. She will be deeply missed by son Lewis (Brenda) and daughter Helen Totokey grandchildren Deejay (Normand), Cassidy (Bob), Peter and David; great grand­children Taryn and Cadence; sister Kathleen Dutz; and brothers Walter, Ronald, Arnold and their families.

Over the years Margaret made a warm and loving home for her family and was known for the many delicious meals she prepared for family and friend get togethers. She loved to knit and sew and for years contributed hand-made items for the church bazaars. Once retired, Margaret took up oil painting and became quite the artist. She was one of the few women who received a license to become a radio ­amateur with the call VE7EYM. Over the years she also enjoyed the many adventures she had with Steven while travelling around the world. We have many wonderful memories of our wife and mother.
