Margaret passed away July 12, 2017 from ovarian cancer. She was born in Victoria, BC. Predeceased by her parents Joseph and Hilda, brothers Fred and Robert, sister Maureen, brother-in-law Charles McQuarrie, and sister-in-law Nadya. Margaret leaves her beloved husband Brian and cherished daughter Lara Gauthier (Jeremy), grandson Dylan and granddaughter Marisa, her brother Ken, sister-in-law Heather, childhood friend (like a sister) Della Pears (Richard), many nieces, nephews and step children.

Margaret was a graduate in 1964 of St. Joseph’s School of Nursing in Victoria, BC. Margaret was constantly amazed at the beauty and wonder of this world. She had a gentle, thoughtful, candid and cheerful nature. Her main love was family, home and the garden.

Margaret very much appreciated and thanks her family, friends and all medical personnel who have supported and helped her throughout her cancer ordeal.

No service by her request.

    To the family of Margaret Bassett, Marg was a nursing classmate of mine in the class of ’64. She was a lovely, kind and gentle person. I enjoyed all my interactions with her and never did I hear harsh or negative comments from her. From her obituary, she sounded like the kind of person I would have liked to be friends with-with her love of her home and garden. I left Victoria after graduation and did not return until after my husband retired from the military. Our other classmates said that Marg had chosen not to attend get togethers which disappointed us but which we respected. She was always remembered fondly and her name always came up at reunions. I will be thinking of you in your time of grief and be assured that she will be remembered fondly. Pam Goodwin(nee McMillan)
