Margaret-Lynn loved life, despite the many limitations caused by her health conditions. Even amongst her struggles, she was a consistent reminder of the true meaning of Family. She celebrated every moment of joy with great importance, no matter how small. Reading, candy making & creating intricately weaved Friendship bracelets were a few of her favorite pastimes. She was a talented esthetician, who enjoyed teaching others how to care for their skin & nails. As a makeup artist, she felt her greatest achievement & pure delight, was giving clients more confidence. She made others feel they could accomplish whatever they set their mind to while always encouraging them to bravely fight their own battles. Margaret-Lynn will always be remembered as a devoted Daughter, Sister, Granddaughter, Niece, Cousin, Auntie, and Friend. She will be fondly remembered and forever cherished in our memories.
No service was held & because of Covid she was cremated. The family asks for you to remember her in whatever way will be significant to you.
