Margaret Ivey, 68, of East Bay in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, passed away on April 26, 2021.
Marg grew up in East Bay in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, and met her husband Ken at a school dance when she was 16. At 18 years old, she and Ken moved to Toronto where Ken attended Ryerson University. After a few years, they moved home to Nova Scotia and raised a family in Fall River. Marg worked at the QEII Health Sciences Centre as an Administrative Assistant in Emergency and Heart Health. After Ken’s death in 2013, she worked for a few more years before retiring and moving to the Crowsnest Pass in Alberta in 2017 to be near her grandchildren.
She is survived by her daughter, Kristin Ivey (Jason); son, Michael Ivey (Steph); grandchildren, Declan and Emmett Colucci; siblings, John MacNeil (Erica), Paula MacNeil and Jerry MacNeil; brother in-law, David (Lynne) Ivey; sister in-law, Sharon (Tom) Smith; as well as her beloved dog, Jack Ivey. Marg was predeceased by her husband, Kenneth Ivey; her mother and father, Peggy and John MacNeil; and sister, Kathy (Norman) Williams.
