Margo Dawn Greggains (Lavoie)

Date of Death: August 30, 2021


Margo passed away from Breast Cancer on Monday, August 30th at the age of 51 at Lady Minto Hospital, Salt Spring Island. She is survived by her loving daughter, Madison Ann Greggains, brother Craig Lavoie (Dana), nephew Ryan and niece Alexia, and father Lawrence Lavoie. She was predeceased by her husband Ben Greggains and her mother Mora Lavoie.

Born in Truro, Nova Scotia on June 19th, 1970, Margo’s early work experience included a summer at Walt Disney World, followed by hotel and restaurant work in Banff, Alberta. In 1997 she moved to Salt Spring Island with her husband Ben and daughter, Madison, where she worked as a server at Moby’s for close to a decade. She went on to start a thriving business in home care services (Access Care Management) which she sold in 2019. Margo loved helping people and always volunteered in the community, supported her neighbours and friends, and was a second mother to many.

She will be remembered as a remarkable woman who was strong, warm-hearted and a lover of a “good chat”. Her friendship was her strength and her generous gift to us all.

Madison would like to thank Dr. Crichton her GP, Dr. Bernstein, her oncologist, and the amazing staff at Lady Minto Hospital for their compassionate care of Margo over the years, especially at the end of her journey with us.

A Celebration of Life will be held in the spring, details to be announced. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your local SPCA or the Canadian Cancer Society.
