Marguerite actively participated in the Crossfield community, Crossfield Rebecca Lodge, East Crossfield Red Cross, and enjoyed her membership with the Crossfield Golden Key Singers. Marguerite loved her garden, flowers, nature, animals, sewing and knitting, but most of all her devotion and love was for her family.
