I heard from my sister Pat that "Auntie Marg's" (as we always called her) house was for sale and so in my investigation as to where she might be I came across this obituary. It saddens me greatly to hear of her passing. While she was not actually our Aunt, she was our neighbour and part of our family. After "Uncle Bill" (again not actually our uncle) and my Dad passed away she and my Mom became even closer friends and spent every Saturday evening together. After moving back from University I moved back in with my Mom for a while and so I too spent many Saturday evenings watching tv, watching the two of them knit and chatting. It was nice to have developed an adult relationship with her after so many years of knowing her throughout my childhood. My adult children still refer to Peanut Butter cookies as "Auntie Marg's Peanut Butter cookies because it is her recipe that I use to make them. When my Mother Norah Ryan was a resident at the Perley in her final years "Auntie Marg" would make my Mom some Peanut Butter cookies to keep in her draw so that when my Mom's grandchildren came to visit that she would have a treat to offer them. My son Noah was only two when my Mom passed but that is something that he remembers about her. That is the gift Marg gave to my family. I would say the thing I most noticed about her was what a good listener she was and how good she was to other neighbours. Her presence will be missed on Devon St. To her real family we send our condolences. Rest in Peace. Carol Ryan Daughter of George and Norah Ryan.
