1936 - 2019 This is a story of Margaret Jean, She left her home at just 17, First child of seven, 3 boys 4 girls, Life was busy in Margaret's world. With meals to cook and pots to clean There was barely time for school or dreams, But strong and smart And with Crowley girl looks, It was off on the train to Corner Brook. Nursing the sick would be her trade, And she'd build a life with the money she made, Life was good, thought it couldn't be finer, Then she met her man in the city diner. Right away and with just one glance, She knew she had to take that chance, With all the others hanging around, No hesitation he sat right down, And introduced himself to her, And quick as a wink they went off in a blur, His name was George He was strong and kind, He wasn't about to change his mind, He worked hard for a living, He drove a truck, Now he met his girl, so was his luck, As time went on, they were married with kids, Oh, the things together they did. There were friends and family Troubles and sorrows, Three squares a day and planning tomorrows, Life moves on with spectacular speed, Somehow providing all they would need. Twists and turns, wisdom gained, Pleasures provided along with pains, All the things that life entails, Leads all of us down familiar trails. Frivolous thoughts fade with time, But love grows strong amongst the gentle and kind, Now Margaret knows that love is the key, And what we control is all we should heed, For the day will come we are no more, And the love you give comes back 10 times more, There awaits in Heaven a place for us all, To live again and answer the call, The call to return from whence we came, Where love lives on and the heart is tame. Dear Wife and Mother We love you so, It pains our hearts To see you go, but we'll see you again In Heaven, it's true, For when you're true to love, Love's true to you. Lovingly remembered by her husband George; children: Cheryl (Brent) Kerr, Darren (Mary), and Don, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and a circle of siblings, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
