Lord, please wish Margaret a Happy Birthday today. Lots of us wish we could hug her, so if she's planting or painting or bouncing about anywhere near you up there in Heaven...would you do that for us too? Thanks so much for letting us share her for awhile.
Dearest friend Margaret
I miss you so very much and all the fun things we did...our laughs.our tears .
You were my sister and I will keep you close always. Love from Laura
1924 – 2010
Mum was taken from us after a short illness in her 84th year.
Proud mother to daughter Jean, son John (Carol). Grandmother to Joshua, Treason and Connor.
She lived a full life being born in Whitby Ontario. Moving to and growing up in Scotland and then relocating to Canada in the early 1950's.
Her life was spent living and working in Port Alberni and then Campbell River till her death.
Mum also loved to cook, upholster furniture, make wine, play bagpipes, music, Scottish dance, being a clown, and being around her family and friends.
In her later years she loved to watch the cruise ships sail past her house in Campbell River as they went to Alaska.
We will forever love you and miss you.
Margaret, I still miss you so much. It is hard to believe it's two years since you left us. So wishing you were still here.
I think of you so much - whether I see a crazy t-shirt that would be great for clowning - or seeing the gardens come alive again - or just "whenever" throughout my days.
I miss you, and know I always will. I'm so fortunate to have been your friend and cherish our times together.

My Dearest Friend...today closes the first year since you left us and I do miss you and our fun times together. You will always remain close in my heart.
Sleep soundly my friend, from Laura
Hello Margaret....here it is almost Christmas time and I can see you in your kitchen making shortbread. Yummy. I miss you and that will never go away. You are in my thoughts every day.
Goodnight dear friend.
Today I opened your last email titled..THE MEANING OF WORDS...just beautiful. No words needed. That's the way we were with each other. I miss you terribly ....and a visit to sit on your verandah would be the greatest. Good nite dear friend. love from Laura
I miss you sooo much Margaret. It seems like forever since I last heard your laugh. I keep expecting to see you in town or to go to the clown club. Every time I get "In Clown" I think of you, My Special Friend.
Lord, would you mind telling Margaret today that we slept under her quilt again last night? The Blue Pineapple one, intricately and beautifully sewn with her own clever hands. In the top corner, on my huasband's side she embroidered, in fine blue cotton: Blue Pineapple November 1998 To Kathleen and Rick, Love Margaret. Tell her she did a good job of making sure we remember her, would you? But, really, how could we forget someone so intricately and beautifully made by you? Impossible. Impossible. Thank you for her life, God. It brightened ours for too short a time.
Remembering the day in August two years ago when we did the rounds of the second hand stores, searching for clown accessories. We sure gave the staff and other shoppers at the Sally Ann lots of laughs as we called to each other when we found something particularly zany. I have such fond memories of that wacky day. BTW, the hens and chicks you gave me are growing like crazy. I repotted them in the spring and they appreciate the extra room. I think of you so often, Livingston, and miss you a great deal. Love, Giggles.
..........missing you lots dear friend.
Minuet is at a very nice home and fits right in with the cat and dog they already had. They sensed her sadness for you and took over to make her feel better.This will please you a lot. I see and hear things and it comes to mind that.."".Oh Margaret would like that one."" Cheerio for now friend. From Laura
How do you fill the void after a true friendship is shattered when one is taken away?? Margaret and I shared much happiness over many years along with a shoulder to cry on for each other. We shared many stories and gloried in all the news of each others' families Can anyone ever know the hours we spent on her veranda each summer watching for the cruise ships...sometimes into the wee hours. Just being quiet...Even a day away to Royston to buy oysters was a good day for us.Just simple things.
That is the special friendship we shared and cannot be replaced.
Thank you dear friend. I will always miss you right along with our simple little things.Remembering you always.
Love from Laura
Margaret came into my life as a client in 2002 or 2003. I had the privilege of taking care of Margaret's feet and hearing of many of her life's experiences. She loved her children very much. Margaret and I enjoyed being involved with the Comox Valley Clown Club over the past couple of years. We had many laughs. I will miss our friendship very much. May God give John and Jean and their families much comfort during this most difficult time. Heather Dirks aka Marmalade the clown.
Margaret aka Livingston came into my life as a client. I had the privilege of taking care of Margaret's feet and hear of many of her life's stories. Her love for her children was very obvious. We did some clown club activities together and had many laughs. I will miss her very much. Heather Dirks aka Marmalade
Margaret and I met in January 2008, when we both signed up for Clown Club at the Campbell River Community Centre. It was the beginning of a treasured and truly fun friendship that doesn't happen often in life. We especially enjoyed shopping for clown wear togethe as well as performing on Quadra Island and at various locations with Judy throughout Campbell River. I miss you, Livingston Clown. Thank you for being my friend. All my love, Giggles (aka Gina).
Life only gives you one Margaret, I thought, when I heard the news, and now it's over. I feel bereft, as though someone has snipped off a corner of me. But it's not over, of course. I'm so grateful to have many, many memories of my almost thirty-year friendship with my wise and plucky friend.
Though we lived far apart for most of those years, we kept in touch, and she continued to bless my life with her cheery words. On our occasional visits (as I had moved far) we caught up quickly, and remembered why God had allowed our paths to cross--we were truly kindred spirits.
I expect to visit Margaret again, over tea, if heaven has such, with the bagpipes playing Amazing Grace in the background. We'll have plenty of catching up to do, she and I.
John and Jean and family...my husband and I pray God comforts you with precious memories of your irascible, irresistable, irreplaceable mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother. Though imported from Scotland, she was truly a national treasure.
