It is with great sadness the family announces the passing of Margaret Laura (Lackie) Parfitt which occurred at Shannex, Tucker Hall on Sunday, November 27th, 2016. Born 1935, in Smithtown, NB, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Edith (Baskin) Lackie. Margaret worked for Keystone Printing for many years. She was an active member of Edith Avenue Baptist Church and she loved her Lord Jesus. In her earlier years, Margaret was a Sunday School Teacher and she loved to sing in the church choir. She enjoyed doing crossword puzzles and reading. Margaret was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. Most of all, she cherished every moment spent with her family.
