SMYTH, Margaret Caroline
(nee Saunders)
March 8, 1922 ~ August 6, 2012
Margaret passed away in hospital in Perth, from complications following a stroke. She was the loved and loving daughter of the late Jim and Jewel Saunders and sister of the late Al Saunders. She is survived by her brother Bob (Shirley) and by her sister Jean Creighton. Margaret is also survived by her five children, Anne Smyth, David (Yvonne), Mary Pelton, Chuck and Jean (Paul) Healey; her grandchildren Krista, Kerry-Anne, Jason (Jackie) and Jessica; and her great -grandchildren Sydney, James, Max and Jaxson.
