It is with great sadness the family announces the passing of Margaret Darlene (Stevens) St. Pierre which occurred at her home on Saturday, January 5th, 2019, surrounded by her loving family. Born 1959, in Coles Island, NB, she was the daughter of Alice (Cook) Stevens and the late Rupert Stevens. Margaret enjoyed spending time outdoors, tending to her garden and watching the deer and hummingbirds. Christmas was her favorite time of the year. She was devoted to her family. Margaret was a loving mother who took great pride in raising her 3 children. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy.
Margaret is survived by her beloved husband Bertrand of 43 years; son Michael St. Pierre (Jody) of Quispamsis; daughters Carrie-Anne St. Pierre (Jimmy) of Saint John, Rachel St. Pierre of Quispamsis; step-son Joe St. Pierre (Sarah) of Red Deer, AB; brother Brian Stevens (Elizabeth) of Mazerolle Settlement, NB; sisters Lynda Kilpatrick of Hampton, NB, Lorna Stevens-Albert of Saint John, Bonnie Appleby (Eldon) of Cambridge Narrows, Anna Stevens (Gerry Kierstead) of Kierstead Mountain, NB, Heather Welton of Cody’s, NB; grandchildren Nick, Samantha, Devin, Brayden, Taylor and Dani; great granddaughter Savannah; as well as several nieces, nephews and friends.
