I think of her often and am in awe of such a person of strength and determination. Margaret will always be a very special person to us, one of a kind in so many, many ways.
I am praying for her and her family to ease the pain of this great loss. It is never easy. She would want us to remember the very great times and hold onto those memories.
Marg was truly amazing, strong and unique. We admired her
courage in all she did in the time we've known her.
Our sincere condolences to the whole family.
Brilliant, witty, lovable Marg brought joy and wisdom to every person she worked and played with. Peace to all who loved and treasured the extraordinary Margaret Meikle.
I had the pleasure of meeting Marg when she was writing Dog City Vancouver and got to be on the cover with her and so many other dog lovers. She was such a lovely woman and I can barely imagine the depth of your grief as her family. RIP Marg. As Kalil Gibran wrote: For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?
And what is to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?
I had the privilege of knowing Marg while we were students at U of Alberta and we were roommates for a short time as well. One thing that I will always remember Marg for was a saying that she had: "Dare to be mediocre!" It was such a great way of framing the world as it gave her and everyone around her the courage to step out and do something - dare to be mediocre - don't worry if it's not perfect - but by doing something you can change the world. I believe Marg did this and always inspired those around her to do great things as well. I will miss her and want to express my condolences to her family at this time of loss.
Marge, Noel and Mac,you have stood fast opposing this terrible illness with valor and class. To Mac and Noel and both families, our sincere condolences.....Kae Titterington and Bill Miller, West Kelwna.
Margaret's legacy lives on in our minds as the one who created the unique event, Porridge for Parkinsons and the wonderfully-creative auctions she hosted as fundraisers. My best wishes to her family at this time.
We extend our heartfelt condolences to the family on your loss. May you find comfort in knowing that God cares for you and will sustain you during this difficult time.
Rest in Peace dear Marg! I have so many fond memories that I will always hold dear. You were a great friend and will be missed so much...
I was very privileged not only to listen to Marg on CBC radio, but also to know her and do volunteer work with her. My sympathies to the family.
Noel and Mac. Our Sympathy for your loss of a good wife and mother.

You were an inspiration to me Marg. Hugs to Mac and Noel.
What a great lady,and an answer lady at that!
She faced her disease with a straight-
forwardness,I know I couldn't muster.
I used to listen to Marg on CBC while driving home from work.
Loved the Answer Lady. Deepest sympathies to the family.
Marg had such an amazing life with a vast collection of creative projects and accomplishments. With Porridge for Parkinson's she inspired so many to do so much in the effort to find a cure. It's been an honour to be her friend.
Sail on -- what a great gal. If anyone could turn a tough personal situation into a remarkable public benefit, it was her.
