Margaret Cosgrove Authier


June 3, 1942
October 18, 2020

Margaret, 78, courageously fought but lost her battle to cancer on October 18. She was predeceased by her parents Hughie and Margaret, husband Arthur and son Ricky. She leaves to mourn her and miss her very much, son Marc (Nancy), granddaughters Amelia and Abigail, daughter-in-law Tara and granddaughters Riley and Peyton, her siblings, Bill (Fran), Jeannie, Gaye, Dorothy and Rita, many special friends, relatives and neighbours. Margaret was a member of St. Joseph’s CWL, volunteered at Communic-Action, Meals on Wheels, and in previous years at Heritage School working with children with reading difficulties. At Margaret's request, she has been cremated and, due to the pandemic, there will be no viewing and a private immediate family only interment of ashes. When COVID-19 restrictions are sufficiently lifted, there will be a celebration of Margaret's life so that all her friends and relatives can attend and pay tribute. Special thanks to Father Gabriel Clement, Charlene Vaincourt, the nurses and staff at CLSC, and, last but certainly not least, Dr. Fabienne Djandji. If you wish to make a donation, please donate to Betty Riel Foundation. Funeral Entrusted to Rodrigue Montpetit et Fils Inc. 170 Châteauguay St., Huntingdon, Quebec J0S 1H0, 450-264-5331 Online condolences and tributes may be made at

    She was a delight to visit with and will now be at rest and well deserved Peace.
    RIP, Margaret . I will miss you.

    May her family and close friends find comfort in the thoughts and prayers of friends, neighbours and all your happy memories.

  • Linda Latulipe

    My sincere condolences to Marc and the entire Authier/Cosgrove clan. Margaret was an exceptional woman ❤️ She was funny, witty and so very kind. It’s as though every hardship she endured acted like a refiner’s fire, melting away any dross so that all that was left was pure gold. Our community will miss her deeply, but we are all better to have known her.

    I will always be grateful for having Margaret in our lives, she was so brave and courageous and always smiling.
    Fond memories of having tea with her and my mom at Jimmies on Saturday afternoons and later on my sons would stop in too.
    I remember a party we had 10 years ago and Margaret got on the trampoline with her granddaughters and was jumping so high and laughing, that is the memory I will remember. Rest In Peace Margaret, you will never be forgotten.❤️

  • Pat Martin

    My deepest sympathy to all her family and her dear close friends. I've prayed for this beautiful soul ever since her dear cousin Rosetta asked me to years ago. It was always wonderful to see her back in the last pew in church with her warm smile. When I saw her at mass, before the COVID, she told Fr. Clément and me that she wanted "Lord of the Dance" sung at her funeral, no sad songs. I know she is at rest and free from all the pain now. She was truly an amazing, unforgettable lady and our community has lost someone very special.
