Grand Mira South

It is with broken hearts that we, the family, announce the sudden passing of our beloved wife, daughter, mother, grandmother and sister, Margaret Ann Baldwin in a car accident on May 2, 2022, in Grand Mira South, Nova Scotia.

Born on January 23, 1955, in Truro, NS, Margaret Ann was the daughter of Doris (Frizzell) LeBlanc and the late Roger Leblanc of Truro.

Besides her mother, Margaret Ann is survived by her loving husband of 48 years, Bobby Baldwin; children, Tammy (Chris) Oldford, Ontario, Robby (Melissa) Baldwin, Ontario, and Roger (Tina) Baldwin, Marion Bridge; grandchildren, Victoria and Ryan Oldford, Evan and Julia Baldwin, and Maggie and Ben Baldwin; sisters, Sheila (Andy) Campbell, Jane (Doug) Landsberg, Cathy (Rod) Himour, and Dawn (Owen) Scott.

Margaret Ann worked at various jobs throughout her life, most notably the Ashby Co-op for almost 20 years, Canada Post, and recently as a school bus aide. She gave of herself over the years by volunteering for a number of different organizations that her children were a part of, such as a Beaver leader (Rusty), Holy Redeemer Youth Group, the annual Cape Breton Dairymen’s children’s Christmas party, and the Pier Loaves and Fishes.

Margaret Ann could often be found at Tim Hortons and Value Village with Bobby at any time of day. She and Bobby enjoyed travelling with various family and friends to such places as Hawaii, Spain, Italy, France, Cuba, Dominican Republic and various other places throughout Canada and the United States. She was an avid gift shopper, book reader, Sydney Crosby fan, and scrabble player with her sisters. Margaret Ann loved her girls’ weekends in Tatamagouche with her mother and sisters where they would often dress up in themes. Over the past few years, she took up quilting where she would spend her Monday nights with the girls making blankets for the whole family. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her 6 grandchildren. She and Bobby could always be found around town with Maggie and Ben and travelling to Ottawa to spend time with Victoria, Ryan, Evan, and Julia. She loved to have the grandkids over for Friday night sleepovers, getting the whole family together for fight (games) night, and her celebrations after a victory in the game of Trouble were legendary. She also loved the times when all the grandchildren were together in Mira during the summer.

There will be no visitation for the late Margaret Ann Baldwin. Memorial Mass will be celebrated at St. Margaret Parish in Grand Mira South on July 14, 2022, at 11:00 am. A celebration of life will follow at the Grand Mira Community Hall.

In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Margaret Ann may be made to the Autism Society of Nova Scotia, the Children’s Wish Foundation, or any charity of your choice.

Margaret Ann will be greatly missed and always loved by her many friends and family.

Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.
