FRENCH, Marguerite Theresa 84
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.

She will always be with us, in our hearts and in our minds. We love you mom forever and always.
