Herbert, Margaret Lydia (nee Hebert, Goulet)

Posted by on April 18, 2016

web+Herbert_MargaretMargaret’s life has come full circle as she was born on March 24, 1938 at Stop 26 in Riverside and died April 17, 2016 a few blocks away at her home with her family close. Her childhood was spent on the west side of Windsor and she went to school at St. Edwards Catholic School and Forster Collegiate. She married Donald Goulet at Blessed Sacrament Church in 1956. They had four children Donald Joseph (Carol), Randall Edward, Paul Anthony and Michelle Marie (Kenneth Locklear). In 1978 she married Edward (Ted) Herbert and was blessed with two additional daughters, Susan Louise (Craig Miller) and Catherine Marie (Andrew Walsh). As Sue and Cathy were 5 and 3 respectively Margaret was the only mother they knew and they became her children in all respects. She leaves behind her children, 12 grandchildren and four great grandchildren and her brother Robert Hebert. She was a Life Member of the May Court Club of Windsor and participated in their child development centre outreach, their store operations, and as co-coordinator of their designer house project. It was the designer house that she was proudest of, since the project raised a record amount for the Club’s charitable activities. She lost the use of her right leg and her activities were restricted. That did not stop her from volunteering as a Meals on Wheels driver, or as a helper for the St. Vincent de Paul Society in their food distribution and store activities. She was also proud of the card club she started in 1976. It was not only a social club, but also a group of like minded ladies who were able to share life’s events and activities over 40 years with care, concern, and discretion for others. If you so desire, donations to the St. Vincent de Paul Society would be appreciated by the family.

Visiting Wednesday and Thursday 3-5pm and 7-9pm with parish prayers Thursday at 7:30pm at Families First 1065 Lauzon Rd. East Windsor, 519-969-5841.
