Hennessy, Margaret Louise (née Boyes)
Died peacefully on Thursday April 16, 2020 at Sunset Manor, Collingwood at the age of 85. Margaret of Duntroon, beloved wife of the late Donald Hennessy. Loving mother of Lois Fiske, Susan (Bryon Green), Bill (April) and John. Cherished grandmother of Joel (Shannon), Lisa (Billy), Ariadne (Lee), Stuart (Jacqueline), Thruxton (Brittany), Devin, James and Alexis and great grandmother of Makena, Kiria, Molly, Brandon, Abigail, Emmeline, Henry and Willow. Dear sister of Elaine, Mona, Elta, John, Jim and the late Tom and the late Bob. Margaret will also be missed by her many nieces and nephews, friends, neighbours, members of OES and LOSNA. Marg was an integral part of the Hennessy's garage in Duntroon for the entire 60 years it operated. She was a very sociable person, enjoying the company of her customers and friends. She loved to go dancing with Don, rarely missed a card game or opportunity to go gaming and enjoyed travelling when she could. She valued her community and was involved in many organizations such as 4H, Women’s Institute, the Red Hats, the Eastern Star and the Ladies Shrine. She loved her family deeply and will be missed. Her family gathered at the Redeemer Cemetery, Duntroon for a graveside ceremony. A public Celebration will be held at a later time when circumstances permit. If desired, a donation to Collingwood General & Marine Hospital would be appreciated by her family. Please check Marg’s Book of Memories at for an update.

To the Hennessy family: We are very sorry to hear of your Mother,s passing. Marg was a hardworking, kind and thoughtful person. Our father,s were good friends and had many good conversations together. Somewhere along the years all,of us went to school with one another at one time. Your parents were both strong members and contributors to the Duntroon community. Your Mom was part of the wonderful memories of our community we had when growing up. Our deepest sympathies.

Dear Sue, Bryon, Lois, Bill and John ... we met your Mom and Dad almost 40 years ago at their cottage at Buck Lake. They were always so welcoming and interested in us, especially when our kids came along. Gerald was reminiscing that they "always had fun wherever they were" May all of your memories of your Mom (and your Dad) be a comfort to you in the days to come. Blessings to you all, Gerald & Karen LeBlanc

The Hennessy Family:

Mum and I were saddened to learn of your Mum's passing. We have such wonderful memories of her, baseball, 4H, the dances at Duntroon. We used to love seeing your Mum and Dad dance around the hall. May the many memories surround your minds and hearts with warmth and love always.
