She was predeceased by her husband Allin Mitchell (1973) and later in life, Lloyd Pineo (1988).
She will be missed by her son, Doug Mitchell (Rosemary) and daughter, Juli Wheler (Bruce) and her four grandchildren, Jon Mitchell (Lindsay), David Mitchell (Ellen), Amy Wheler (Sam) and Katie Wheler (Ryan).
She was adored as “GG” by her great grandchildren: Soleil, Cedar, Aurora, Grayden, Reid and her namesake, Maggie.
Margaret will be remembered for her wonderful sense of humour, her feisty spirit and her ability to finish a crossword puzzle faster than any one of her offspring.
At Margaret’s request there will be no funeral service, but friends are invited to share pleasant memories of Margaret with the family throughout the year and toast a life well lived.
The family is appreciative for the care and cooperation of the staff at Amica Whitby, the amazing staff from the At-Home Palliative Care and Supportive Unit at Lakeridge Health, Oshawa, and especially the personal care and support of Victoria, Ayumi and Lesley.
Donations in Margaret's honour may be made to Hearth Place Cancer Support Centre, 86 Colborne St. W., Oshawa, L1G 1L7.
Arrangements entrusted to the OSHAWA FUNERAL HOME 847 King St. W (905-721-1234).
