Valerie BeleckyWe were so sorry to hear about your Mom. I still picture her driving that yellow and white VW van with the four of you piled in all smiling and laughing!

Barbara Carswell We were shocked and saddened to hear of your mom's passing. We are so very sorry for your loss. I have such fond memories of your mom rushing to take all of you and usually a few more kids, in the VW bus to skiing or wherever. She was a devoted and caring mom. It was obvious she really loved all of you. Years ago she made us an angel to put on the top of our Christmas tree. (Always the creative person). This year when it goes up it will hold a very special place in our hearts. May all your memories help you through this difficult time and know she is watching over you. God Bless. Hugs to all if you, Bill & Barbara
Stephanie MartinSince I've become a mother I can't count the times I've asked myself ( in times of both frustration and delight) "what would Margaret do"? She was the ultimate mum and definitely mine away from home...Some of my happiest childhood memories took place under her ever watchful eye, she was there for my first sleep over, first date, first prom, sat through my sports days & strange existential christmas school plays! And all for a child who wasn't even hers...I will miss her calm, humour-filled presence and generous heart...her quiet laugh that bubbled to the surface and made her eyes water she was laughing so hard...her sensible advice and strong example. With love to all the family, La
Jane BernOur lovely Marr: elegant, nurturing, wise, understanding, forgiving, delightful sense of humour, incredibly creative and filled with love for her family. My closest friend and confidante for over 50 years; I will deeply miss her laughter. keen insight and our loving friendship. Heartfelt condolences and love to the fabulous Webster daughters and their children who were so very adored by their Nana Marr.
Simone BernShe swooped in and saved me from sleep-deprived madness, only a few days after giving birth to my son. She brought me hand-sewn change pads, blankets, burp-up pads, his names hand-sewn in Dr. Seuss cloth, food, and most importantly, my sanity. She took one look at me and sternly said, "Give me the baby. Go sleep". I gratefully acquiesced. She was a delight - warm and nurturing, and I only hope to be as loving and caring with my own son as she was with her family, and, even briefly, as she was with mine. I know my mum knew her for much longer, but her kindness will live on in my heart, forever.
Hilary Paterson So very sorry for your loss Alix. Your mom was so creative. Her beautiful cupcakes and princess/bride cakes were second to none. They made countless showers that much more special. Sending love and light to you and your boys, as well as to your extended family. Xo
Sandra HillMy sincere condolences on the loss of your Mother, Alix, Mary Margaret, and Sarah. Know in your hearts that the gifts she gave you are yours forever - her wisdom, her laughter, and her love. Margaret was a lovely lady. She welcomed Shayne into her family, and was a kind Nana to the two wonderful grandsons that we shared - Hudson and Jordan. It was a privilege to know her. With love, Sandra

Lisa CasaubonMommy Webster, your beautiful smile and loving hugs will be forever missed by the Casaubon family. You welcomed me into your family with open arms and I have so many of my fondest memeories with the Webster family! Webster family nights in the PBV, buttercream icing always stocked in the fridge, first day of school photos, summers by the Doncaster pool, the alphabet game, toe ring emergencies and so many more. I will always hold a special place in my heart for you and you will always be my Mommy Webster. I promise to always look out for Alix and we promise to always toast your beautiful soul on New Years!! Happy New Year! Xo Love Lise

Earl & Shirley McGregorSo many good memories so abruptly came to a halt. Margaret and I go back to our childhood. Now there is not the friend to call to support or get comfort from. We will and are now missing her presence wit and wisdom. Our thoughts are with all of you Her family. You'll feel this the most I only wish I knew you all better
Roberta CoryRory and I send you our compassion on the loss of Margaret. She was our neighbour at the corner of Maitland Street from 1999 to 2005 when we moved to Victoria. We loved to hang out together and to cross country ski in the winter. She visited us when we were living in Victoria. Now we are back living in Old South in London and are so sad to have lost a friend. Her family was her life. She was a loving mother and grandmother first before other things.
