Peacefully at home surrounded by family on February 7, 2018 at the age of 89. Loving wife of the late Joseph (1992). Dear mother of Lloyd, Gary and Allan (Paula). Cherished grandmother of David and Kevin. Predeceased by her parents Stephan and Rosalia Hido and siblings Steve, Mary, John, Rosie, Joseph, Anne and Helen.
Margaret was born on a farm in Saskatchewan to Rosalia and Stephan Hido. Second youngest of 8 children. Worked hard and went to a country school. Worked the land along side Dad and 3rd brother Joseph. Moved to Hamilton in 1954-5 along with Hurricane Hazel. Two older brothers were in the air force – Steve and John.
She got a job at Bell Canada in Hamilton. Met and married her husband Joseph who, shortly after, was transferred to Carling O’Keefe Breweries in Etobicoke and so they moved to small town Brampton. Mass in Brampton was being held at the John Street hall with Fr. Sullivan. Catholics were few and the C.W.L. was trying to thrive.
