ILLIAMS
('69)
Submitted by Nancy (Smythe) Bateman ('72)
On Aug. 16 '10 Mount Allison lost an
enthusiastic supporter. Starting out as a
teacher, Margaret became a publisher's
representative and Atlantic manager for
the Education Division of Addison
Wesley
Publishing
and
Doubleday
Canada. After marrying George Williams,
the couple moved to Halifax where they
raised their children. Margaret was a tire-
less community volunteer, serving on
various boards and executive commit-
tees. In '98 she became an investment
advisor, working with Acadian Securities
and Wellington West Capital Inc. Owing
to her warmth and personality, Margaret
made friends in every undertaking and
across the country. Margaret embraced
life and faced its inevitable challenges
with resolve and dignity.

George died on Jul. 22 '10, following a
diagnosis of gastric cancer two months
earlier. George had fond memories of his
years at Mount Allison -- musical training
from Carleton Elliott, Howard Brown,
and Allison Patterson; singing in the
Conservatory Choral; playing junior
varsity football; and the many friendships
he made. He used his musical training well
and inspired students to appreciate music
and pursue careers in the field. He also
played the organ in various United
Churches, directing choirs and arranging
music to suit his members. He loved to
sing and, over the past 20 years, began
singing and accompanying himself on key-
board, entertaining people throughout the
Ottawa Valley. His musical talents, ability
to organize, and willingness to help others
will be missed by the community where we
have resided since '72.

He is greatly missed by his family.

Close friends since junior high, Marjorie
and I entered Mount A in '62. After
receiving her BA Marjorie obtained her
BEd from Dalhousie University. Both in
Dartmouth and in Winnipeg she inspired
her students with her enthusiasm for
learning over her 30-year teaching career.
Marjorie was a prolific reader, a lover of
art, and passionate about causes that bet-
tered our world. Marjorie's greatest joy
was her family -- husband of 43 years,
Brian Trenholm ('65), their four chil-
dren, and four grandchildren. Marjorie
passed away peacefully on Jul. 16 '10 after
an 18-month battle with cancer. She
faced her illness with the same dignity she
had shown throughout her life.

Faye was a member of the Class of '69 and
my roommate for two years on third-
floor Windsor. She will be remembered
for her sense of humour and love of Saint
John. After her time at Mount A she
attended

College
in
Fredericton. She passed away unexpect-
edly after a brief illness on Apr. 24 '10.
She will be greatly missed, especially by
her mother, her husband Rick, her sisters
Mary Jane (Young) ('65), Barbara, and
Deborah, her children Mark and Regan,
and her grandson.
