MARGARET (MAGGIE) ELLEN PRESTON 1922-2010 Maggie passed away peacefully Tuesday, May 26, 2010 at the Toronto Grace Health Centre. She has suffered for many years with Alzheimer's Disease. Her parents Elsie and William Howard, her uncle Gordon Howard and her brother Frank Howard predeceased her. She is survived by her husband Lew Preston of Toronto and two sisters-in-law: Pearl Arnold of North Battleford, SK and Joyce Blais of Kyle, SK, as well as many many true and valued friends. Maggie returned to school as an adult and obtained a BA degree at the University of Toronto, of which we were all very proud. She was born in Toronto and worked for several organizations, including a munitions plant during WWII, the CBC, The Sportsmen's Show and others in the Advertising and Finance fields. The Toronto Grace Health Centre (formerly the Toronto Grace Hospital) is operated by the Salvation Army and is a dedicated, excellent facility with an experienced and well-trained staff. They deserve our most sincere thanks, and support. Maggie was a loving, caring wife and a wonderful, compassionate person. She will be sadly missed. Funeral arrangements will be private with a memory of Maggie's life planned for later.
