Margaret Mitchell (Booth) nee Salisbury May 6, 1950 - September 7, 2017

With heavy hearts, the family of Margaret Mitchell share the tragic news of her death as a result of a car crash on Thursday September 7, 2017. Margaret Mitchell, age 67, of Lake Placid, Florida (previously of the South Mountain area) was known for her kindness and compassionate care in bringing new life into this world as a highly skilled labour and delivery registered nurse and lactation consultant at Highlands Regional Medical Centre, Florida.

However, Margaret’s biggest pride and joy were her children and grandchildren. She was the most wonderful and loving Mom and Nana of DeeDee (Steven) Bekkers and their children Rachel, Amy, Dayna, & Myah; Dodi Booth and her son; Hazel Booth (Chris Locke) and their children Landon & Stevie; late Holly Booth (Ryan Dillabough); Grant Booth (Elise Pendlebury) and their daughter Adelaide; Megan Booth (Michel Raats) and their children Jacob, Luke, and Bianca. Dear sister of Judith DeVries (Lee Blank) and Joyce Salisbury (Ray Burrell). Aunt of many nieces and nephews. Much loved Daughter- in -law of Hazel Booth. Companion of Ron Estanbrook. A friend to many, she never missed a birthday, anniversary or holiday. We do not know what we will do without her in our lives.

    So very sorry for your loss. Margaret was a special friend who give us a lovely time when we visited her in Florida. She brightened the lives of all who new her. I’m sure she and Holly are now guardian angels watching over their loved ones.

    My heart breaks for Margs family and friends. She was a very special lady and will be missed by everyone who was blessed to know her. We went to Nursing school together and drove together for most of the 2 1/2 yrs. I lived in Kemptville at the time. Marg was the hardest working person I think I have ever known, and it was always with goals surrounding being with her children and grandchildren. I am so happy she was able to be on an extended visit to Ontario to be with family which she was so looking forward to. She treasured every moment spent with her children and grandchildren. I can only imagine the tremendous void she will leave in their lives. I am grateful to have called her a friend. My heartfelt condolences to Marg’s family and friends

    I was not lucky enough to know Ms. Mitchell but am fortunate enough to be a friend of her daughter, Hazel.
    Ms. Mitchell leaves a legacy of love and care that will echo through her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her living example of love remains and will live on forever.

    My thoughts and prayers are with Marg and Hollys families. Marg and I went through nursing school together. She was the most thoughtful, conscientious, hard-working, generous, calm, energetic person I know. She also was so much fun. Yes she was terrific. She loved her family and friends. We are truly going to miss her.
