Marguerite Harriet (Haynes) Westgate, was born in Lincoln, Maine, on January 19, 1925, to Percy and Stella (Ireland) Haynes, and she passed, surrounded by loving family, on September 28, 2016, after living a long, full 91 years of life.
Marguerite will be remembered most for her 17 years of service to the former MSAD #67, as a bus driver, where she affectionately considered any child in her care as "her kid." She loved each and every one of "her kids," right through to the end.
Marguerite was predeceased by her parents, her husband, Alva Westgate, her sister, Vera Eaton, and her brother, Jerome Haynes. Marguerite is survived by her daughter, Donna Pereira, a sister, Freda Delano, granddaughter, Marguerite Tilton and husband Bryan, six great grand daughters, Savannah, Adrianna, Stephanie, Natalie, and Emily, all of Lincoln, and Michelle Tilton of Ft. Campbell, KY, as well as several nieces, nephews, cousins, and special friends.
