elevated 5b42s Marguerite Isabel De Abreu (nee Tranquada)
elevated 5b42s It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Marguerite De Abreu, beloved wife, mother and grandmother, on April 27th, 2019 in her 80th year. Beloved wife of Louis Thomas De Abreu, loving mother of Julie Tilley (Alan) and Joanne Iannantuono (Peter), loving grandmother of Graeme and Jessica Tilley and Christian and Adrian Iannantuono. Also mourning her passing are her sister Anita Pickett-Brunott (Rene) and brother Michael Tranquada (Genny). She’ll be greatly missed by many cousins, nieces, nephews and all who knew her. Marguerite lived for her family and grandkids. After running Complete Graphics for 34 years with her husband, she enjoyed traveling extensively around the world. Marguerite’s bags were always ready for the next adventure. The family would like to thank all the doctors, nurses and staff at Southlake Regional Hospital and the Reactivation Care Centre for their compassion and support. Special thanks to Dr. Carter Thorne for his years of care. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Marguerite’s name may be made to the Arthritis Society.
Loretta & Jaap Kannegieter will be attending the funeral-mass on 2 May.
Condolences to the family from the Drivers and Staff of Go Transit. East Gwillimbury
To Louis and his entire family , Patsy and I would like to extend our deepest condolences for your great loss. Our most recent memory of Marguerite was at the Annual DeAbreu Golf Classic held in Bolsover every year in June. She was always so pleasant as she waited patiently for Tiger Woods ( Louis), and the rest of the extended family to come off the Golf Course and enjoy the lovely potluck dinner which was waiting for us.
She would be surely missed at all future events.
With sad hearts,
Patsy and Greg DeCastro.
“Dr. Maggie” was the matriarch of the family – our “GoTo For Advice” person. Even when she was in pain she always would take the time to give us great advice. I know she will still be looking after us from above! She will be greatly missed.
Sincere sympathy to Marguerite’s family and friends. She was a lovely person who I shared music lessons with in Guyana. May she rest in peace in the company of angels.
Our heart felt wishes go out to Julie, Al and their children. They are such an incredible family and always put family first. Thoughts and prayers are with you now and always. Love, Craig, Heather and boys.
To Uncle Louis, Julie, Joanne and the entire family, please accept our deepest condolences. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. Love Matt, Carey and the boys
Louis and all family
My Sincere Condolences to all the family. I will keep you all in my prayers
I have known you both since my Guyana days, I have not forgotten any of those who participated in my young life.
God Bless you all
Love, Margaret (Teixeira) Palmer better known then as(Magar)
My deepest condolence to you Louis and Julie and the rest of the family, Maggie was one of the most wonderful women I met when I came to. Anaya I always looked forward to meeting her, God bless you all
