Margaret Taylor Death, Obituary – We are writing to inform you of the unexpected death of Sister Margaret Taylor, who went away peacefully on the 20th of December 2022. Her demise came as a complete surprise to everyone. As we tell you this information, it is with a heavy heart that we do it. On September 15, 1958, Margaret became a member of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary. At the time, she was one of eight children overall and one of just four girls. Her birthday is August 1940 and she was born in Glasgow.
After Margaret had finished her Final Vows and her training to become a nurse and a midwife, she was given the opportunity to serve as a missionary in the countries of Malaysia and Indonesia. After moving back to the United Kingdom, Margaret was able to locate employment as a health visitor in the cities of Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Rhayader, which are all located in Wales.
Her deep fascination in learning as a process and caring for others eventually prompted her to study psychology and counseling rather than teaching or working in the medical area. After completing her training in Santa Clara, which was in the United States, and fulfilling the requirements for registration in the United Kingdom, Margaret began her ministry of accompaniment through Counselling and Retreats. This was after she had completed her training in the United States at Santa Clara. As part of this, we offered help to people who were going through the formation process.
Margaret experienced a sudden onset of illness three days before to her passing, and as a result of an invasive streptococcus A infection, her condition continued to rapidly deteriorate. She ultimately passed away as a result of her illness. We are filled with joy and gratitude to God for the gift of Margaret, not only in our life but also in the lives of everyone else whose path she crossed. Margaret was a devout Christian woman who had a crystal clear understanding of the qualifications necessary for “mature, brave women laboring for the reign of God.” We lift our prayers for her to be comforted by the knowledge that her Lord loved her.
