FRENCH, Marguerite Theresa    84
Sydney
The Cape Breton Post, January 15, 2007
Marguerite Theresa French (nee Healey)
passed away peacefully, with her daughter by her side, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney, on Saturday, Jan. 13, 2007, just short of her 85th birthday. Born in Sydney on February 3, 1922, she was a daughter of the late Tom and Catherine (Fleming) Healey. At about age seven, Marguerite moved to Conception Bay, near St. John's, N.L., where she spent several adolescent years. As a young teenager, she moved with her family to Whitney Pier, Cape Breton and resided there until after her retirement, when she moved to the Ashby area of Sydney, to be closer to downtown conveniences.

On Feb. 16, 1943, she married Leonard French, her husband of nearly 64 years, with whom she raised four children. Marguerite had a strong desire to provide her children with more than she had received while growing up. To that end, in an era when relatively few married women worked outside the home, she cleaned private homes, and then was employed for 27 years in the kitchen of the former Sydney City Hospital, from which "Marg" retired in 1996, at the age of 64.

In her golden years, Marguerite enjoyed bowling with her husband. Into her eighties, she could be frequently seen walking throughout downtown Sydney, as the couple did most of their travelling on foot. It is likely this walking contributed significantly to her good health, which she maintained until recent years. Until her health began to fail, she faithfully attended St. Theresa's Church, Ashby.

Marguerite is survived by husband, Leonard; sons, Leonard "Butch" ( June), Oshawa, Ont., Raymond "Ray" (Sharon), Brooklin, Ont., Ernest "Ernie", Victoria, B.C. and daughter, Catherine "Kay" (Robert) Digou, South Bar, Cape Breton. In addition, she is survived by seven grandchildren, Sheri, Trish, Andrew, Amber, Marshal, Terry and Robert. She is also survived by six great-grandchildren. Marguerite is also survived by elder sister, Genevieve "Gen" Dwyer, Conception Bay, N.L. and younger brother, Ray, Hamilton, Ont. Marguerite was predeceased by sister, Ann Dwyer and stepsisters, Agnes and Eileen. She was also predeceased by brother, Ron and stepbrothers, Martin and Tom., Visitation will take place from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Tuesday at Sydney Memorial Chapel, WeltonStreet. Funeral will be held Wednesday at 10 a.m. at St. Theresa's Church. A reception willfollow at the parish hall, with all invited. Interment will be in Resurrection Cemetery, Sydney Forks. Memorial donations may be made to theCanadian Diabetes Association. Online condolences may be sent to the family through sydmemchapel@ns.sympatico.ca

Remember me when roses bloom And spring returns again, For I am ever present in your midst In the dawn and in the wind. You mustn't think I've gone away For good, instead remember meThe way I was in better days The way it used to be. Remember me as I am now Alive, at peace, and free. There is no place for sorrows past Is just a lost memory. For life derives it's purest joy In living day to day, Follow what I've taught you And remember me, this way.
