Margo worked for Dan-Nel Coach Lines where she drove a school bus for 20 plus years and made some wonderful friends. Margo was very involved with St. George's Homer Anglican Church in Niagara-on-the-Lake, and received the Order of Niagara for her exceptional services to the Church. She was a member of the Eastern Star and volunteered for many organizations such as The Canadian Cancer Society. She also volunteered at the Tuck Shop at Upper Canada Lodge where she helped all of her grandchildren obtain their community hours for high school. Margo's love for children was so evident by driving school bus and spending time with her grandchildren. Margo received recognition for her volunteerism towards seniors from the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake in 2005 and was always willing to help when someone or an organization needed assistance.
Margo had a passion for baking, everyone that knew her, loved her apple pies. She loved baking cookies with her grandchildren. Margo and Tom were great partners in everything they did, from raising their children, caring for ducks, saving turtles and working together in their greenhouses. Margo and Tom travelled in their Airstream for 10 plus years, exploring Canada and many Southern US States. Thank you to Dr. Durocher and Denise Murphy and her team at Upper Canada Lodge for the wonderful care they provided to Margo.
