WHITE, Margaret, Louisdale
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, Margaret White (Goyetche) who passed peacefully surrounded by her loving family at the Strait Richmond Hospital on June 25, 2019. She was born in Arichat, July 31, 1926 to the late Alcide and Alexina (Samson) Goyetche. She studied at the Maritime Business College in Halifax, the city where she met her husband, Eugene, of 57 years. She retired from the Louisdale Credit Union in 1985 after a 30-year career in which she spent her last 22 years as the Manager. She was a long-time member of the Louisdale CWL, church choir and was active in her community. She will be greatly missed by her loving family and so many of her bingo and card buddies with whom she enjoyed spending her nights. Margaret was the last surviving member of her immediate family.
She is survived by her 11 children, Paul (Terry), Marilyn (Roger), Catherine (Tommy), Carol, Helen (Graham), Andrea (Daniel), Bobby (Debbie), Raymond (Jessie), Mary, Vivian (Cecil), and Germaine (Buddy), 25 grandchildren, 33 great-grandchildren, 1 sister-in-law Gladys (Doug) and numerous nephews and nieces.

We are very thankful of the care and compassion she received from her long-time doctor, Laurie MacNeil and the staff at the Strait Richmond Hospital and St. Martha’s Hospital over the last seven months. Also, a very special thanks to her bingo drivers over the last 18 years!
