BENNETT, Margaret Rose Bennett (nee Pitblado)

Passed away on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 and is now with the man she had known and loved since she was 15, her husband Clifford Gordon Bennett.  Marg was predeceased by her dad and mom David and Melissa (Johnson) Pitblado, brothers James and David Pitblado, and her sisters Wilma Yake, Dorothy Nobes and Kay MacIntosh.  Family was Marg’s greatest love.  She was a loving Mom to Judy (Tim) Ratcliffe, Joanne Bennett (Stacey Proutt) and David Bennett.  Devoted Grandma to Christopher (Monique) Reid, Joseph Reid (Janice Baikie), Justin and Alan Crawford.  Grannie to Jonas, Tristan, Bennett, April and Caitlin.  Sister to Ada Harvey and her twin, best friend and soul mate Marion Patterson.  Sister-in-law to Barbara Howard
and a very, very special Aunt to 4 generations of nieces and nephews who adored her!

When Marg was not knitting sweaters, hats, socks, and mittens for her family she was knitting for one of her volunteer organizations.  Helping her community was another of Marg’s passions.  She was a giant supporter of The Huntsville Girl’s Hockey Association, she founded the Parents Auxiliary for minor hockey in Huntsville, (if her children were involved, so was Marg).  In her later years she became involved with The Friends of Fairvern and Muskoka Knitters for Global Warmth.
