BABCOCK, Margaret Rose (nee Ferringo) -

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, Margaret, on September 12, 2019, at the age of 72 at the Guelph General Hospital.

Beloved mother of Sam (John), Ken (Charlene) and Jeanette. Cherished grandmother to Candice, Jazmin, Nicholas, Nolan, Caleb, Jordon, Kainen, Cecelia and great-grandmother to Winter. Survived by siblings Bernadette, Fina, Lee, John and Ethel. She will be sadly missed by nieces, nephews and many others in her large family.

Mom worked at the Guelph General Hospital for many years when she was younger. She was an active volunteer in nursing homes during her later years in life and always helped those in need or less fortunate. She was an animal lover and leaves behind her adored cat, Saffy.
