Sending condolences to the Holdright family. It was with great sadness that for me to hear of Aunt Marguerite’s passing last evening. Whenever I saw Aunt Marguerite she always had a hug for me and we always had a good laugh. She was one of a kind. When ever she came to liverpool to the variety shows she always connected with my dad, Sayward. They were always laughing at something, when dad, Terry and I visited in the hospital with her, we always had a good story to tell and some laughing. I for sure will miss her greatly and so will dad and Terry. RIP Aunt Marguerite.

Sayward, Terry and Sandy

Condolence from Del and Mary Weare on August 15th, 2016 2:49 pm

To all of Marguerite’s family, I was really shocked when Freddie called me at the hospital last evening and told me Marguerite had died. Yes we knew she was in the hospital but it hurt to hear the sad news. Really I can not remember when l did not know Marguerite. Please keep your chins up and hang on to your many good memories. Also how about taking your Bibles in hand and looking up the passage at John 5:28,29. It talks about the very resurrection that is waiting for your Dear Mother. Mary and l send you all our love and best wishes. Del

To children, grandchildren, Althea and all the nieces & nephews: I am so sorry for your loss of a remarkable lady. Her parents would be proud of her accomplishments as their 9th daughter. I knew most of the girls and they shared a great sense of humour. We use remember her as not taking life too serious and enjoying the little things many people miss. A great lady who left great memories.
I define life as how much you loved, how much you learned and how much you laughed. Marguerite LIVED. God bless you all. We are better people to have known her.
