I grew up on the same street as the Reavey family, Kathleen is my best friend to this day. Margaret always welcomed me into her home and I spent many happy years sleeping over and camping with the Reavey family every summer. I will miss Margaret and am saddened by her passing. Roseleen and Kathleen, you had a wonderful, loving mum, may the many happy memories help you in your loss.
She was a wonderful lady. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Love, Rob and Teresa

Aunt Margaret will be missed by all of us. She was so thoughtful and kind. Her memory and affection kept alive the history of her family. We felt fortunate to see her over the years in Idaho and Montana. Whenever we see hummingbirds, her favorites, we will thinks of Margaret. Our condolences to her daughters and son. She was a fine and special lady.

As I told Kathleen on her FB Page, your Mum was the calm IN the storm. We’ve wondered how she managed to stay serene when all around her was chaos! Pat and I were just discussing it and he remembered the time Gay’s German Shepard had a hold of your Mum’s arm. She didn’t get excited or upset. Just called out to Gay to come and get the dog. Of course she loved dogs so I guess even one that was being rude to a guest was obviously just misunderstood. Keep the memories alive and your Mum with be with you always. Take care of yourselves. Love, cousin Rosaleen
Your Mum was a very special friend.May the love of family and friends comfort you during these difficult days,
Our most heartfelt condolences.
Dear Alan, Roseleen and Kath,
I was very sorry to hear that you have lost your Mum. She was a very kind, gentle person. I will always remember her singing Christmas carols one year long ago at Gail and Bert’s. She had a rousing voice and was the only one of the group who knew the second and third verses. We were all very impressed! I also remember that she was a wonderful knitter who made me my very treasured green heather hooded cape. it was unique, and it kept me warm for many years. You will all miss her greatly, but I trust that the memories you have of your Mum will give you lots of joy in future years.
