Goodall, Margaret Carson

Margaret Carson Goodall, loving mother of three children, passed away suddenly on Monday, August 31, 2020 at the age of 80.

Margaret was born on November 21, 1939 in Glasgow, Scotland to David and Teresa (Granelli) Hamilton. She married James Stanley Goodall on September 3, 1960. Margaret, James, and their first two children, Allan and Lynn, emigrated to Canada in January 1967, where they were soon blessed with their son, Ian. They raised their children in Oshawa, Ontario, where Margaret lived most of her life. Her last four years were enjoyed with her daughter’s family in Calgary, Alberta.

A lifelong avid reader, Margaret also enjoyed quilting, and puzzles of all sorts. Her passion, though, was her family. She spoke lovingly and often of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Her kind heart and infectious laugh will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

Margaret was predeceased by her beloved husband, James; her brother, David, his wife, Jessie, and their daughter, Lesley; and her brother, William.

She is survived by her children, Allan (Alana) of West Monroe, Louisiana; Lynn (Simon) of Calgary, Alberta; and Ian (Roselyn) of Oshawa, Ontario. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Karlynn (Justin), James (Pam), Adam, Sarah, Bryan and Logan and great-granddaughters, Brooklyn and Logan.

Margaret will also be missed by her nieces and nephews, Paula (Gerry), Bill (Tracy), David (Deborah), and Alison; her grand niece and nephew, Krystyna and Stephen, and great grand-niece, Alexis; and her dear friend and sister-in-law, Bonnie.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the date for arrangements for internment in Oshawa will be determined sometime in the future. To view and share photos, condolences and memories of Margaret, please visit

I am so very very sorry to hear of the passing of my cousin Margaret. I do have many memories of Margaret in Scotland and of the last time I saw her when I visited Canada. I think The truest memory I have of Margaret is that she was a truly lovely gentle woman who always made time for all family. I know that she will be sorely missed by all who knew her. Including myself.
Her cousin always, Frank Carson

Mum and our dog, Sabine, November 2004 in Louisiana. They became fast friends the moment they met.

Mum and Dad loved to dance! I'm not sure of the date, but I think this was from cousin Bill Hamilton's wedding.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of my cousin Margaret, she was a lovely person. I have very fond memories of Margaret at our family gatherings in my granny Granelli’s house at Cambridge Lane Cowcaddens, and at her own house in Cadder. Although we had not spoken in many years, we were a close-knit family and my cousins abroad have never been far from my thoughts. May she rest in peace. Gone but not forgotten.
This photo was taken in aunt Marion's house.
