“May the roads rise up to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, may the sunshine warm your face, may the rains fall soft upon the fields, and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.”
Margaret was born on Wednesday June 15th 1938,to proud parents Joseph and Jessie in Lewis Street, Crewe. She has two brothers Francis and Bernard. She was a thoughtful girl who went to St Mary’s Roman Catholic School, where she was a popular student with teachers and pupils alike. When she left school she became a library assistant. Margaret could talk to all kinds of different people from all walks of life. Her Catholic faith formed her life and her gifts of goodness and kindness touched everyone she met. She was a no fuss person but wanted the best for everyone. She nurtured generations at St Gabriel’s play group, work she thoroughly enjoyed.
Margaret was married to Noel for 46 years and they had 3 children, Tony, Christopher and Dominic. She loved her family and adored her grandchildren, Megan, Isaac, Amelia, Ethan and Elijah. She loved cricket, once going to Old Trafford to see an England and Australia Test Match. When they arrived there it was raining heavily, with that Margaret and Chris (her son) went home to watch the match on television, only to find that the sun had come out to make a glorious day. (only English weather) Besides holidays in Cornwall and Norfolk, Margaret and Noel and the family have travelled alot in Europe and Canada.
