Passed away peacefully, surrounded by family on Thursday, July 26, 2012 in her 96th year, at Sunnyside Home, Kitchener. Margaret was born in Saint John, New Brunswick, the daughter of the late Jack and Jessie Dallas (Orr). Beloved wife for 62 years of Jack Macredie (deceased). Much loved by her children Helen (Nyle Iutzi), Ian (Elaine Condos) and Leslie (Barry Wiens). She will be sadly missed by her grandchildren Margaret (Douglas Heuman), Jennifer (Brian Cumberland), Matthew Iutzi, and great-grandson Graham Heuman. Margaret and Jack lovingly raised their family while Jack’s work took them to New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario. Margaret made lifelong friends wherever she lived. She was loved and admired for her energy, strength of character and generosity of spirit, and will be missed by her many friends. Margaret felt strongly about supporting those less fortunate in her community and abroad. She was well-read and continued to stay informed about current events and the arts.
