Margaret was born in Horsham, Sussex, England to William and Rose (Francis) Goodwin and spent the early part of her life living in the small adjacent village of Broadbridge Heath attending Broadbridge Heath School and later working in Horsham through to 1946. Margaret was predeceased by her father in 1971 and mother in 1950. Margaret met her husband to be David Alexander Thordarson while he was serving with the Canadian Army, Royal South Saskatchewan Regiment 2nd Division in England during the Second World War. Margaret and David were married in the Parish Church of Horsham on April 3, 1946 and they settled in Brandon, Manitoba.

The family would like to convey very special thanks to all the wonderful staff at Dinsdale Personal Care Home who have been nothing short of remarkable in the care and friendship they have shown our mum over the years of her residency there.

There will be a private family interment at a later date.
