Please share a memory of Margaret to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

It is with broken hearts that the family of Marg Drake Barnes announce her unexpected passing on June 28, 2022 in Ontario. She leaves behind her partner, Roger Berkeley; her sisters, Mary, Willie, Trish, Lee, Jackie and their families. A beloved aunt to many and a cherished grandmother to Sydney Rae and Kennedy Neil Marschdorf.

Born in New Waterford, N.S. to the late Elizabeth and Bill Tobin.

Predeceased by her brother-in-law, Gary and her nephew, Shane.

Marg was well known for her kindness and generous spirit. She retired to Cape Breton for 13 years and was very active in the St. Vincent de Paul Society and the Combined Christmas Giving for many years. Give her a charity or a way to help and she would work tirelessly.

To honour Marges wishes, cremation has taken place and her cremated remains will be taken home to her beloved Cape Breton for burial.

The family will receive guests on Thursday, Sept. 22, 2022 between the hours of 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 380 Smith Street, New Waterford.
