Obituary of Margaret Brand
BRAND: Margaret Mary
After taking every physical thing from her that she had to give, our Wife, Mother and Nana, Margaret, has lost a relentless and merciless battle that Parkinson’s forced upon her. Her heart, made strong by years of kindness, her faith, the love of her family and friends and the angels of Huronview who tended to her, carried her as long as it could.
Caring for us until the end, she wanted to give us the peace of all being by her side before she joined her block to the quilt of loved ones who have gone before her.
