Marguerette’s life was dedicated to her teaching career 1951-1985, teaching in Springfield, Chipman and St. Andrews at the Vincent Massey Elementary School for 31 years of her teaching career. To this day when her name is spoken in and around Saint Andrews the reply comes back “Miss Mitchell, she was my Grade 6 teacher”.
In service to her church life at the St. Andrews Pentecostal Church, she shared her many musical talents, especially on the piano as the pianist. She also gave many years to the church as a Sunday school teacher and treasurer. After her retirement she continued to serve her God with missionary work with her friend Sister Ruth Drost during her 16 years living in Malaga, Spain. Marguertte loved to travel and some of her best trips were to the west coast and Ontario to visit with family and take part in special occasions. In her spare time you would usually find her working on a needlepoint, cross stitch, knitting or crocheting project that got gifted to family and friends.
Funeral arrangements are under the care of Humphrey’s Funeral Home, St. Stephen, NB www.humphreysfh.com and Davidson’s Funeral Home in Doaktown, NB.
The family extends a special thank you to the staff at Passamaquoddy Lodge for their care of Marguerette during her brief stay there. She would often say they were treating her like a Queen. Thank you to her friends and family who took the time to visit and call her at the Lodge.
