Obituary of Margaret MacDougall
With sadness, but also with appreciation for a life well-lived, the family of Margaret MacDougall announce her passing on Monday, April 15, 2019 at her residence in Rocmaura Nursing Home, Saint John. Born January 1, 1925 in North Sydney, NS, she was a daughter of the late Edward “Ted” and Margaret MacDougall.
Margaret worked as the Manager of Field Operations with Encyclopedia Brittanica for 40 years. She lived in Chicago, IL for 50 years, devoting her life to her work and to her faith. During her many years, she spent a great amount of time travelling for leisure and to visit family. She enjoyed Sunday dinners at her cousin Josephine Legere’s, movies, and always ensured her family members benefitted from her love of shopping, sending an abundance of beautiful gifts for every birthday and Christmas.
Margaret is survived by a sister, Theresa Bremner (Donald); local nieces, Marlene Garland (Eric) and Valerie Landry; and nephew, Joseph Landry (Kathy Beckingham); local sister-in-law, Betty MacDougall; and several other nieces and nephews across the country.
