Margarette Rose Point
November 25, 1950 – January 11, 2021
It is with great sadness that Musqueam announces the passing of Margarette Point (late Wayne Point’s wife) on January 11, 2021. There will be a service for Margarette on Friday, January 15 at 10am. Due to Covid-19 safety protocols and restrictions, only those contacted will be invited to attend in-person. Please know that this is a very difficult and unusual process for the family.
Musqueam is hosting a live stream of Margarette’s service on Facebook.
In effort to create an opportunity for Musqueam to partake in the services for our loved one, there will be a procession through the Musqueam Reserve after the celebration of life. The family invites friends and family to join in this final farewell by lining up at designated spots along the procession route.
The procession starts around 11am on Salish Drive (outside Musqueam Community Centre) and follows this route:
- Travel north along Salish Drive
- Right on Thellaiwhaltun
- Quick left onto Crown Street
- Left on Stautlo Avenue
- Left back onto Salish Drive
- Right onto Musqueam Drive to the cemetery
Handshakes to Margarette Point’s family
Please send prayers and condolences to the Point family during this difficult time. If anyone would like to give a handshake to the family, please e-transfer [email protected]
Handshakes and returns are also accepted during the procession. The ushers will follow behind the procession to collect envelopes along the route. Please include in e-transfer or on envelope: name, where money will go (e.g. headstone, family etc.)
Saying goodbye during Covid-19
Due to Covid-19 guidelines, community will remain at designated areas and say your farewell from the curbside. We ask that everyone practice physical distancing and ensure the safety of the family in mourning. We understand how difficult this is for community, but we must remain diligent.
Musqueam Council and Admin acknowledge that this is not ideal, nor is it consistent with the traditional ways we come together to remember loved ones. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the ways we gather. We are doing our best to ensure members can still uphold cultural practices while maintaining everyone’s safety.
