In loving memory of Margaret Kelly who sadly passed away on 31st May 2020.

Margaret was the most amazing person: vibrant, beautiful and kind. She had the biggest heart and was so full of love and kindness that you couldn’t help but love her.

Sadly at the beginning of May 2020, she was diagnosed with cancer and within a week, her diagnosis was confirmed as terminal pancreatic cancer. She was given only a few short months to live.

We, her family, tried to stay positive and looked for alternative treatments, but sadly the cancer was just too aggressive.

She had a number of issues which had to be dealt with along with the management of her symptoms, all of which kept her in the care of the hospital for 3 weeks. During this time we were only allowed to visit her twice.

She was finally discharged and allowed home from the hospital on the evening of Tuesday 26th May. However we were heartbroken to see how quickly she deteriorated and she was admitted to hospital again on Saturday 30th May. She then passed away on the Sunday 31st May.

Any form of cancer is unfair, but pancreatic cancer is especially cruel as it robs you of time and the chance to fight it. The statistics show that normally by the time it’s diagnosed, it has already spread. Sadly, this was the case for Margaret. She was such a strong person and so mentally up for the fight, but just wasn’t given the chance to fight it.

We have set up a link to the charity Pancreatic Cancer Action, whose aim is to raise awareness and save lives through early diagnosis. This would give those unfortunate enough to be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer the chance to fight the disease and a much greater chance of survival. If you would like to make a donation in memory of Margaret, please click on the link above.

Margaret was only part of the team at Dartford for a short time, but she had such an impact on everyone who dealt with her. She was so friendly and open and she effortlessly built positive relationships with anyone who had dealings with her. I will personally miss her calm level head and sensible advice, and all of the endless cups of tea she made in a day! We are all devastated and cannot begin to imagine how much her family are missing her. Our thoughts are with you all at this very difficult time.

I just wanted to pass on condolences from the London Team to this very sad news. A number of our team knew Margaret and whilst I was aware that she was ill, it has still been a shock and come so very quickly. She will be sorely missed.

I don’t believe I have ever met Margaret, however, that doesn’t mean I don’t want to pass on my condolences to her family.

Please pass on my thoughts during this very difficult time.

I only met Margaret briefly in December at the conference but she struck me as a really nice person. I just wanted to offer my condolences to Margaret`s family in what must be a very difficult time and I cannot imagine what they must be going through.

I would like to start off by saying I didn’t know Margaret very well as I had only met her twice from when she started at Imagile. Those two times I had spoken with her during our training at new street, I can honestly say she was such a lovely woman. Can you please offer my condolences to her family and the team around her, I cannot imagine the heart break they are going through and that I wish them all the strength in the world to get through this immensely sad time.

With deepest sympathy,

I was very sad to hear of Margaret’s passing.

I met Margaret in January at the London Office where she attended one of the DMS training sessions I deliver. I remember her being very keen and interested to understand the system which made it an enjoyable session. Margaret was a nice lady and I am saddened to hear this news. Please pass on my condolences to her family.

I was so sorry to hear this tragic news. I only knew Margaret in the last 12 months, but had enjoyed working with her on the Bexley Schools project. Please pass on my condolences to her family and to the team at Dartford, for whom this must be a huge shock at an already very challenging time. Best wishes to all.

Sending sincere condolences to the family of the lovely Margaret who worked with us on the Bexley Schools project and who was appreciated by the whole team. I’m both shocked and greatly saddened by the news but these words seem inadequate to express the genuine sentiment behind them.
With best wishes

Given the shock with which I received the news of Margaret’s passing, I cannot begin to think how you can understand and come to terms with your tragic loss. At this difficult time, it will be understandably hard for you to do little more than mourn her passing. However, I have no doubt that you will all have many happy memories of Margaret and it is these that should and will endure.
In deepest sympathy,

I have only been involved on Dartford since March so cannot claim to have known your wife/mum well unfortunately, as lockdown prevented me from visiting site to say hello. I did manage to speak to Margaret a few times before she fell ill and felt an immediate tie because of the shared connection with Glasgow. I was deeply saddened to hear how unwell she had become so quickly and devastated when I heard the news of her passing. I know this sadness is shared by the rest of the team at Dartford and by the wider work. All of this will be completely inconsequential when compared to the sense of suffering and loss that you are feeling at the moment but I do hope, as the hurt begins to ease with the passage of time, you will draw some modest comfort from the fact that Margaret worked in a place where she was both liked and respected by those who worked alongside her.
You continue to be in my thoughts at this difficult time.

The news about Margaret has come as a shock and its really upset me. She was lovely. She came to Norwich and I helped her with SAP and workbook training. We were going to attend the upcoming training together later in the year. It’s very sad and has topped what has been well…an upsetting time.
It was a pleasure to meet Margaret, and my thoughts are with her family at this sad time. Margaret, may you rest in peace

We met some time ago now at your interview and I was so pleased to see you join us in December because I knew you would fit right in which you did straight away. My lasting memory of you is your medical advice you wrote on a post it note for me for my sinus infection which when I went to purchase turned out to have been discontinued some years ago. Your response was, ‘whoops need to have a clear out of my medicine cabinet’ which made me laugh. We didn’t work together long, but I always enjoyed working with you because we did have some laughs. That’s what I will remember about you……. laughing and terrible medical advice!
Rest well Margaret.

Margaret you passed away too quickly, and It breaks my heart knowing that you may no longer be physically with us. It has been an honour to have worked with you.
You were my friend, and a good woman with a genuine heart.
