Obituary — Margaret Mitchell (Booth) (nee Salisbury)

With heavy hearts, the family of Margaret Mitchell share the tragic news of her death as a result of a car crash on Thursday September 7, 2017. Margaret Mitchell, age 67, of Lake Placid, Florida (previously of the South Mountain area) was known for her kindness and compassionate care in bringing new life into this world as a highly skilled labour and delivery registered nurse and lactation consultant at Highlands Regional Medical Centre, Florida. However, Margaret’s biggest pride and joy were her children and grandchildren. She was the most wonderful and loving Mom and Nana of DeeDee (Steven) Bekkers and their children Rachel, Amy, Dayna, & Myah; Dodi Booth and her son; Hazel Booth (Chris Locke) and their children Landon & Stevie; late Holly Booth (Ryan Dillabough); Grant Booth (Elise Pendlebury) and their daughter Adelaide; Megan Booth (Michel Raats) and their children Jacob, Luke, and Bianca. Dear sister of Judith DeVries (Lee Blank) and Joyce Salisbury (Ray Burrell). Aunt of many nieces and nephews. Much loved Daughter-in-law of Hazel Booth. Companion of Ron Estanbrook. A friend to many, she never missed a birthday, anniversary or holiday. We do not know what we will do without her in our lives. The family will receive family and friends at the Mountain Township Agricultural Hall 2967 Lough Road, South Mountain on Wednesday September 13, 2017 from 6 to 9 p.m. A Celebration of Life for Margaret and her daughter Holly will be held at Kilmarnock Orchard, 1182 Kilmarnock Road, Jasper on Thursday September 14, 2017 at 11 a.m. followed by Interment at Knights Cemetery, Inkerman at 4 p.m. All are welcome. Those who wish may make a donation in memory of Margaret to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) Foundation.
