MARGARET HUTSEBAUT (O'DONNELL) Peacefully on July 3, 2012 with her family at her side. Margaret was born in Kilwinning, Scotland in 1938 to Mary and Hugh O'Donnell. She had a wonderful childhood in Glasgow with her five brothers (Hugh, Robert, Eddie, Neil, and Bill) and five sisters (Anne, Bettie, Teresa, Rose, and Mary). Courageously on her own, at age 18, she immigrated to Canada, seeking a new adventure. Not long after arriving in Canada, she met Joseph Hutsebaut (Joe) and they were married in 1959. Joe predeceased Margaret in 2002. Margaret had a beautiful smile and a twinkle in her eye. She was the most caring, loving and dedicated mother imaginable. Others who met her became immediately fond of her. During the past few years she thoroughly enjoyed the warmth and sincerity of new friends she made through Connect Community Church. She was an exceptionally talented knitter and many babies and children were fortunate to benefit from her gifts. She also used her talent to help others and for years she donated knitted items to Blessed John XXIII Church. Funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, July 10 at 11:00 a.m. at Blessed John XXIII Roman Catholic Parish, 3390 Portage Avenue (at Rouge Road). Honorary pallbearers are Diane Lavich, Joanne MacMillan, Maryann Niessen, Chris Price, Mike Price, Jen Shearer, Mary Price and Ann Buchanan. Wee Mum; "Goodbye for now my trusted friend, As you've moved on and I remain; Alone, but still I have your likeness" -Paul Murdoch- Chapel Lawn www.chapellawn.mb.ca 885-9715
