Born in Cormier Cove, she was the daughter of the late Albenie and Modeste (Cormier) Gautreau. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Adolph (Dolph) Neilson in 1996. Marg and Dolph raised their family on Church Street in Moncton and moved to Dieppe in the eighties. Many summer and winter weekends were spent at their cottage in Caissie Cape and numerous leisure trips to Florida were enjoyed as well. In the year 2000 Margaret moved to Parkland Estates in Halifax where she lived until 2002 at which time she returned to Moncton to take up residence at ProTem.
