It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Margaret Mero on Monday, January 18, 2021.

She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, and many close family friends.
Margaret was predeceased by her husband, Bill Mero (Feb. 2019), her infant son Michael (1962), daughter Dawn (2014), great-grandson Zack Lawlor (2008), her parents John and Greta Parminter, brothers Jack Parminter, Bill Parminter, sisters Barbara Parminter and Roberta Rines.
Margaret was born in Williams Lake BC, spent her early years in Horsefly and the family moved to Quesnel in 1942 where she met Bill December 1949. They were married September 1950 and after a brief sojourn in Ontario they and their growing family returned to BC.
They lived in Quesnel, Anahim Lake and Prince George. Margaret kept busy with her family; the focal point of her life.
Once Bill retired, they explored self-employment with an Aiko store, cooking for mushroom pickers in Northern BC followed by operating Marg’s TakeAway in Anahim Lake for 10 years. Following these adventures, they started travelling and enjoyed many international trips, making friends wherever they stopped, enjoying all the world had to offer in cuisine, experiences and friendships. Favourite destinations included Inuvik, Australia and Puerto Vallarta.
A Celebration of Life for Margaret will be held when gatherings are allowed again.
Donations in Margaret’s memory may be made to the Spirit of The North Healthcare Foundation, 1475 Edmonton St Prince George BC V2M 1S2.
