Margaret Donnelly Obituary
MARGARET DONNELLY, age 86, passed away on May 5, 2015 in Fort Mill, SC surrounded by her loving family. Margaret was born in Glasgow, Scotland to Mary and Thomas McKinnell and was the fifth of seven children. Margaret met the love of her life, Peter Donnelly, while on board ship, traveling from Scotland to Canada on vacation. It was love at first sight, and in the instant she took his hand, a bolt of electricity rushed through him. They were married on April 23, 1960. Margaret was a devoted wife and mother. She always had a smile on her face, a song on her lips and a dance in each step she took. Her love of life and family was surpassed only by her love for God, and it was her faith that caused each word spoken, to be loving and kind. She was a Grand Lady and she will be terribly missed by all who knew her. It will be in the stories that she shared of her youth and life, and the gifts of laughter, not sorrow that she will be remembered by. Margaret leaves behind her three daughters and their husbands (her sons) and grandchildren, Michelle & Kurt, Kurt ll, Ashley, Peter, Shelby and Hayleigh Weissenbach, Yvette & Iain, Katelin, Courtney, Kirsty, David and Micaela McLaren, Ann-Denise & Ken and Jonathan (JT) Aeppli, as well as her sister Elizabeth (Allan) Dakers, and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her devoted husband, Peter Donnelly, son Peter, parents and siblings Rose, Agnes, Tommy, May and Patsy. VIEWING: Sunday, May 17, 2015, 5:30 to 9pm; Rosary at 7:00pm, both at England Family Mortuary 27135 Madison Ave, Temecula CA 92590. Funeral Mass: Monday, May 18, 2015 at 10:00am, Saint Martha's Catholic Church, 37200 Whitewood Road, Murrieta, CA 92563.
