In Memoriam

Margaret was born in the 1920s, a fisherman's daughter, and she lived for a great part of her life in the fishing village of Cockenzie, East Lothian, Scotland.

She married Peter in 1942 and they had one son. Peter was a lorry driver and Margaret saved enough money to rent a shop in Musselburgh, then purchased a shop in Joppa to finally a hotel in Murrayfield Avenue, Edinburgh and the family moved there in the early 1960s.

Peter passed away in 1983 and Margaret retired to Cockenzie and lived on her own. She enjoyed many holidays abroad with her friends before moving in beside her son, Richard, in 2002. Margaret, now in her 80s, enjoyed a good life in the countryside with her dogs, Honey and Tasha, and in her 90s she was cared for at home by her son. In 2016, she suffered a stroke at the ripe old age of 94 and passed away.

As per her wishes, her funeral was private and she was buried beside her husband, Peter, in Prestonpans cemetery.
