Colleen, David and all Aunt Marg's family. I loved my Aunt Marg. She was always good to me and her door was always open during my teen and adult years. She was a great baker, loved "her" brownies only. (I'm not a brownie lover). Aunt Marg helped me make my first Sadie Hawkins corsage. I think she was more excited than I was. She wrote to me every Christmas and i have kept all her letters. I'm sure she will be shouting and getting everyone in order in heaven. Be on your toes Aunt Tacey, aka Ann, aka Anastasia she's on her way. Aunt Marg and Uncle Rodney were my family. Loved them both, am already missing them. Due to Covid I will not be attending her funeral and that pains me. Colleen, David, and all, you are in my thoughts. I loved my Aunts. RIP, Love Linda and Gary, Megan and Dylan.

On behalf of Cathedral Catholic Women’s League, I extend my heartfelt sympathies to the McFarlane family on the loss of our dear Margaret. Margaret was a wonderful, active contributing CWL member for many years, a joy to us all. May Margaret join Rodney and her sons in heavenly peace, knowing she will be deeply missed by her members of Cathedral CWL.

With love,
President Karen and executive

To all the McFarlane families, Magdalen had a very long life and not without much sadness. Because of Covid, I am sorry I will not be singing at her final moment on earth as I did for many of her family having said that I will be keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers as you go through your journey without her but knowing she has fought a good fight and reached her time . And now deserves to rest in peace.

My deepest condolences to the family. I knew Margaret and Rodney and they were lovely people. My parents were great friends with them and my father worked with Rodney. May she R.I.P.

My deepest sympathy to you Colleen and your family. Your Mom was such a sweet lady. I enjoyed the last visit Mom (Becky) and I had with her. May she rest in peace and perpetual light shine upon her.
