    I remember Margaret as a great neighbour on Wellington Street. We all remember red haired Margaret driving around town in her sporty, Pontiac Lemans. Rest in Peace.

    I'm so sorry to hear that Margaret Rowat (Tallon) has passed away. I well remember her, when we worked at Clyn & Tinker (Leach Textiles) many years ago, about 1963. A wonderful Lady!! RIP Margaret ~ ~
