Margaret Annie Cameron
Cameron, Margaret Annie « Margie » age 87, of
Cribbons Point, Antigonish County, passed away eight days after her
husband of 65 years, Junior, on March 9, 2021 in St.
Martha’s Regional Hospital, Antigonish.
Born in Middle Stewiacke, she was a daughter of the late Jack
and Ellen Cook, originally from Scotland.
Margie grew up in Sydney and always took pride in her Cape
Breton roots. She was an Ashby girl and graduated from Sydney
Academy. Margie moved to Antigonish to study
nursing and that’s where she met her true love,
Junior. Margie and Junior loved going skating
together, where she would wear her beautiful racer skates. She
graduated from St. Martha’s School of Nursing
in 1955 and worked at Martha’s Hospital in
the obstetrics department, where she delivered numerous babies over
the years. She later embarked on a career as a successful real estate
agent until she retired at age 75. Margie and Junior moved
to Cribbons Point, and they spent countless hours on the beach,
surrounded by family and friends. One of her favorite things to do was
to watch Sidney Crosby play with the Pittsburgh
Penguins. Margie was known for her kindness,
welcoming heart, sense of humor, and her strong love for her children.
Margie’s kids were everything to her, and she was so proud
of them. She loved her grandkids and enjoyed watching all
their hockey and soccer games.
She is survived by her children, Cathy (Robert) Johnson,
Dartmouth; Margaret Ann (Andy Hirt), Antigonish; Tricia, Antigonish;
Allan (Rachel), Duncan, BC; and Stephanie (Craig) Pitcher, Bedford;
grandchildren, Alexandra MacDonnell and Sarah, Owen, and Sophie
Margie is predeceased by her husband, Allan D.
« Junior »; grandson, Robbie Johnson; sister, Ellen Johnson;
and brother, John Cook.

when COVID restrictions have lifted.
