Margaret's Memory Alive in the Garden
July 10, 2019
A beautiful bench, constructed by Glen Brassard, has been installed in the garden area of our hospital in memory of Margaret Rooney. The bench was purchased by three friends – Margaret Power (left), Margaret Heino (right) and Dolores Mechtab (centre). Having just retired from her position at Thunder Bay Airport, Margaret began volunteering in the garden as an expression of her deep love of gardening.
Unfortunately, her life was cut short when a diagnosis of cancer quickly claimed her life. During her time in the hospital, Margaret loved to spend time in the garden absorbing all the beauty and peace she felt in that environment. Thus it was agreed that the ideal tribute to this special lady would be a bench amongst the flowers she so adored and helped plant.
