The Margaret Essex

I was very sad to hear this news from Lindsay this morning...

ESSEX, Margaret Linda Peacefully at Hospice Renfrew on Sunday morning, September 27th, 2009 in her 63 rd year. Very loved sister of Cathy Brennan (Mickey) of Arnprior. Cherished aunt of Amy Foley and very proud great-aunt of her ""little man"", Quinn Foley. Predeceased by her parents, Lionel and Babs Essex. Margaret will be sadly missed by her Renfrew Community Living family which consisted of very special ladies: Cyndi, Kim and Lori; her much loved worker, Ruth Karras as well as Margaret's buddies, Kevin, Bobby, Jeff and many others.

Readers from Renfrew have probably seen Margaret around, and maybe even spoken to her at some point. She was super friendly and absolutely hilarious.

I used to 'hang out' with Margaret when I was a kid. She was in a bowling league with my parents for several years, and I occasionally went along to watch. Margaret would make fun of me for always eating boxes of Smarties at the bowling alley. She'd also frequently tell me "I know where you live" which was adorably creepy.

Mom says that my dad used to playfully tease her, and Margaret would always say "you're an awful man". So hilarious. Margaret will be missed.

Margaret was indeed a fun and friendly woman. I used to see her often at the Bear's Den, where she would greet anyone who stopped for a bite, and knew everything about everyone. Kevin was quite upset when he told me she was in hospice. She had a lot of friends who will miss her.
